Posted on 11/30/2012 4:56:07 PM PST by i88schwartz
Syndicated columnist and FOX News contributor Charles Krauthammer, in his trademark deadpan way, tells Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol he is turning into a socialist.

You make a great point but who else would they vote for if Obama made them pay higher taxes. They won’t vote republican so Obama knows he has them trapped into voting dem too!
I always though he was a fag and a Commie.
Saved for future emails to “liberal” friends
Krauthammer is one of the most intelligent commentators out there. I don’t agree with some of his more libertarian positions, and I bet that in a one-on-one debate I could corner him on some of those points. But give him credit: he has some of the best though-out assessments of Obama, and he is willing to come out and make these public. The left hates him, which is a good sign that he is hitting home.
Some of the posters here are far too wild in attacking imperfections in allies. You take support where you can find it. Few public figures are perfect, after all.
You forgot a rather important one:
WE MAKE THINGS IN AMERICA.
Nope. They can stay home. They can not contribute to the Democrat party. We don’t have to turn them all into Republicans. We just have to show once, just once, that there’s a cost for voting Democrat. Take her over the cliff! Happy landings SEIU!
He, also, said if anyone doesn’t approve of the TSA they should stay home. FUKraut
All too often he is. It’s a real shame.
I’m not sure what selection process is employed to pick these talking heads, but I wish Fox would consult with some true Conservatives, to get someone that will provide some real Conservative viewpoints. I am talking about the exact format those two are involved in though.
There are actually some fairly good people on Fox at other times. Sadly, Fox passes too many people off as the Conservative voice, when they really aren’t.
I don’t think it’s by design (and of course I could be wrong), but I don’t think the management truly understands the Conservative message enough to know they’re blowing it big-time.
Yes, I remember Krauthammer being downright appalled at the “town hall protests,” basically saying how undignified it was and how it would backfire on the Republicans. Ditto for the “tea party.”
Krauthammer can offer some interesting insight sometimes on certain issues, but when it comes to grassroots/populism/mid-America, he has a massive blind-spot. I’m also reminded of when Palin made her famous “death panel” Facebook posting, and Krauthammer condescendingly said she should ‘leave the room’... and then he himself pretty much repeated all the anti-Obamacare points she had just made in her post!
Why do you hate the Tea Party?
When you boil it all down, it’s not so much left vs right, nor liberal vs conservative, nor even Democrat vs Republican, it’s Washington vs the rest of us.
Good post. Rational, not emotional.
You misread my comment. I hate "them" is everybody in Washington, too.
The complacent don’t have ‘fire in the belly’.
A condesending pr*ck, who displays a 'there is no one smarter than me' attitude and then steals from them.
Kinda precious that Kraut, who is Amnesty Liberal (and Liberal on some other things), is calling Bill Kristol a “Socialist”
Can’t Fox News hire some Real Conservative talking heads?
"Yes. It is the Potomac Swamp Fever that eventually grabs all of them.
With the generous compensation and ego stroking they automatically receive, they also come to realize that there are several hundred million Americans and a $20+ billion economy either working for them via taxes, or offering support commiserate to the handouts they grant, I have come to believe that few if any can survive that Potomac Swamp Fever.
I am convinced that no one in the Washington establishment wants to see the government contracted --- to get smaller. It is not in their interests even if it is to the greater good.
Unless we can control and restrain the growth of government, we are lost.
