Krauthammer: Obama Admitted To Medvedev That Second Term Will Be Hard Left
Real Clear Politics ^ | 3/27/12 | Staff

Posted on 03/27/2012 10:45:37 AM PDT by Nachum

KRAUTHAMMER: I think that the key word here in that exchange was Obama saying to the Russians, 'this is my last election.' It's not just that 'I have another election and I'll be occupied with other issues, let's talk about this. It's a complicated want in December.' 'This is my last election.' That's his way of saying with a nod and a wink, 'Look, you guys have a free hand because you run a dictatorship, your elections are rigged. Well, ours aren't rigged, but once I get passed my last election, I'm unleashed. I can do anything

He admitted that he’s planning to finish his last term in an underground bunker.

Harder left than his first term?

I said that if he won in 2008 he would make Jimmy Carter look like a fiscal genius. Jimmy Carter loves Barack because now that Obama has come along Carter is no longer the worse President ever.

I say no second-term for the Innocent Bystander

He is already about as hard left as one can get.

When there is nothing to hold him back he very clearly wants to destroy the country.

This is what happens when we elect a “citizen of the world” instead of an American.

Obama isn’t going to win a second term. Americans will wake up and fire his sorry, socialist ass next November.

If any of our enemies want to make a move now is the time. This guy is a disgrace. He should be impeached for this. I solemly swear to uphold the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic but I’ll be “flexible” if I can just get re-elected and you understand I have to put up a front for the voters so cut me some slack on this missile defense system thing until I am safe after the election, so help me god. And with his hand on the bible no less.

Obama , more truthful to the motherland than the American people . The American people only tolerated until they reelect him. Had to return those Russian spies to the motherland, fast, before they ratted him out.

Knowing the thug, I sense a presumption of knowledge about its outcome.

He is already about as hard left as one can get.

An Obama second term will have me hoping for a American right-wing military coup to purge this nation of communists. Sorry. That’s just how I feel about it. Better a right-wing coup than a communist takeover. I would not ever wish to see any blood letting, but I could get behind mass deportations of undesireables to an alternate continent.

In the normal course of American politics, the second term of a President is a called a lame duck.

Well, I don't think it is rocket science that most Americans know a second “O” term will be nothing of the kind.

How much intellect did it take to foresee that “O” would be accountable to NO ONE in his first term ... and would be even less accountable that THAT if he has the luck to make a 2nd term?

Nothing could be worse for America. And with the very clear understanding that, what is bad for America is bad for the rest of the world, nothing can be worse for the allies of America.

Their transcript misses an important opening statement by Krauthammer:

Reporter: Of course, we’ve had a rather complicated relationship with Russia for the last few years....

Krauthammer: “I think the relations with Russia have been rather uncomplicated the last three years. We have been giving them everything, and we got basically nothing in return.”

I only wish/hope that that is true but unfortunately I fear it is not. The actions he could and might attempt would make Chavez, Castro and many others look like altar boys by comparison.

I’m starting to think this was a planned leak to shore up his liberal voters, many of whom might be thinking about staying home in November.

You’re crazy! Haven’t you been paying attention to what’s posted here?! If the nominee is Romney, (and that’s EXTREMELY likely), then he’s no better than Obama, so many freepers won’t vote!

That’s right, they don’t mind seeing Obama re-elected because Romney would subvert our defenses for the Russians, and appoint uber liberal Supreme Court justices, among other things.

You better get with the program.

His 1st term is bringing the crab pot water to luke warm. The 2nd term will bring it to a boil, making it nearly impossble to get out of the pot in time, unless the pot is tipped off the burner or the place blows up.

Early in the 2008 democrat primaries when Hilary was the leading contender many here on FR were saying that republicans should cross over and vote for 0bama.

One wise person here on FR made the following statement:

"Beware, it is better to deal with the devil you know than the devil you know nothing about".

That was a statement I will never forget!

“This is my last election” What he really means is this is the last election period. After he gets re-elected (when Hell freezes over) he will declare martial law and make himself president for life. Then Barry will really be flexible.

Don’t feel depressed.

My hope is in JESUS THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

My hope is secure IN HIM.

No system will save us.

Certainly no globalist politician will save us.

Nevertheless, I believe we ought to study, pray and vote even though it is futile. I think it is our Godly Christian duty as Americans—even though the Constitution has been wholesale shredded and the SElections are a total farce.

I vote as I try to do most things . . . as unto The Lord.

However, He has also installed me as a watchman . . . a duty even more important than voting.

Regardless of how unpopular it is and regardless of how many cover their ears, close their eyes . . . and sleep-walk everywhere.

IMO, an Obama defeat in November would be more likely to spark violence in the US than him winning a second term. I am very glad that I do not have to live in a high density urban environment.

Not bad. 30 comments before the first anti-Krauthammer shows up.

So, let me see. A couple years ago, Krauthammer praised Obama's political move when he caved on the Bush tax cuts. Other than that, I don't recall a single compliment about Obama's policies. In fact, Krauthammer has been relentlessly negative about 0's policies.

I've offered this challenge before but have never been taken up on it. Show me a citation from a reputable source (video or transcript would be acceptable) when Krauthammer supported Obama when conservatives did not.

Well I suppose you are right that the other so called conservative pundits would praise Obamas intellect as well.
Obama is very divisive even as he supposedly brings us all together. I guess I was just reacting to my memories of Charles saying how smart Obama is. http://www.mediaite.com/tv/fox-news-panel-praise-obama-speech-question-uproarious-crowds-reaction/

Krauthammer does give Obama grudging respect for smart political moves, but he does not endorse his policies. That's what annoys me when I hear him criticised.
