Charles Krauthammer ís Obama Comment Shocks Fox Panel Into Silence
Freedom Outpost ^ | Apr. 6, 2013 | Tim Brown

Posted on 04/06/2013 11:47:52 AM PDT by EXCH54FE

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer brought momentarily silence, and not the kind that is out of respect, to a Fox News panel on “Special Report” after National Review columnist Jonah Goldberg said that Obama will not get a vote on the majority of new gun control legislation that he wants. “All he wants now is the money,” Krauthammer responded.

Several seconds of silence followed Krauthammer’s, “all he wants now is the money” comment. It was as if everyone at the table had been caught off guard, including host Chris Wallace.

Wallace finally recovered stating, “You don’t really mean that.”

“He’s lost on gun control,” Krauthammer responded.

When opposed by stating that he would get expanded background checks, Krauthammer indicated that it is “not going to make any difference.” He also went on to state that background checks were the “last item standing, the smallest item standing.” He said it’s the only one that Obama could possibly get, which I point out would be a huge blow to gun owners and the Second Amendment. Remember, Gun Owners of America and the National Rifle Association openly oppose expansion of background checks. However, as I wrote about here, West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin and the NRA have been engaged in private talks on a proposal to broaden background checks on purchasers of firearms.

Expansion of background checks would be a significant victory for Obama. Don’t let anyone mislead you. Since they have put out all the bans and hoopla over them, they will be more than happy to take a step forward to infringe upon the Second Amendment with the expansion of background checks.

I watched that. Nothing he said was stunning. I didn’t understand the silence. But we do know that Wallace is no conservative.

Expansion of background checks would be a significant victory for Obama.

With the current technology, doing background checks can easily turn into a national data base of gun owners.
That data base can be used by an unscrupulous government in any number of creative ways to defeat the second amendment.

Rather than play a defense that must eventually erode into failure, the defenders of the 2nd Amendment need to play offense with seeking the repeal of the existing infringements of the 2nd Amendment. At worst, the laws would get no worse, and at best the unconstitutional laws would be repealed.

I understood the silence....He knows . and so did they, Obama goes after any issue which will generate monies he intends to control....so to hear it said point blank...well..'truth' has a distinct way of silencing when it's pointed directly and clearly....it closes mouths.

I ,for one of many, know Obama is after money.....he has favors and debts he still is paying off..both hear and internationally...and using it to trump anyone who gets in his way from being the player he desires... And that is the bottom line. Issues are simply the point of reference to debate...money is indeed what he's after.

This is most certantly the underlining current of the Obama administration from day one.

After even when offered his own solutions to a problem he simply changed his position to no longer be comparable with his prior position and thus was is now offered.

The mean quite obviously has no interest in any solution whatsoever. Even on the Sequester which he proposed when republicans offered to give him unlimited flexablity on the cuts he threatened to veto any such legislation.

Veto your own flexibility?

The big miracle for Obama is how his democratic base manages to remain so ignore of their dear leaders behavioral. You would think they would be upset with him for turning down his own proposals when offered.

The man has the arrogance to tell his base he don’t have the power to do what he wants to do, but the truth is he don’t have the will to do even what he proposes to do.

Basically, Krauthammer told them on-air, “Hey. Does anyone else see this elephant??” Obama has a year and a half until the next Presidential election cycle begins. All he wants to do now is bankrupt the middle class so he can get as many people as possible on the dole. You’re right. He wants ISSUES.

Whenever I think of Obama’s voters and their ability to understand the issues, I think of the woman in the video who got her Obama phone. Not till the end of time will people like her ever understand, or even make the effort. Obama phone, food stamps, EBT cards. That is their world.

the irony is that Krauthammer agrees with Obama on guns and supports all the measures he does, maybe even more. Krauthammer was written in favor of confiscation and disarmament, I don’t think Obama has ever gone that far.

Agreed. For starters, take a look at the Second Amendment.

It is NOT the statement of a Right:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State...

That is a Constitutional mandate for an armed citizenry, a requirement, a duty, not a right.

A thought for you ~ since elected officials at every level are in effect gaining control over the firearms used by the agencies under their authority, they, too should be required to meet the standards of any firearm ownership background check.

Obamagoober hisse'f wouldn't qualify, nor would Biden, nor any of the various screwballs, losers, criminals and wierdos he's dragged into government.

3/4 the Democrat officeholders in the country wouldn't qualify.

We need an amendment on whatever Obamagoober's running dog lackeys have barfed up so that it applies to those who CONTROL publicly owned weaponry!

I didn’t watch this but assuming Krauthammer meant Obama knows it is a lost agenda but wants to collect money from his gun grabbing nazi supporters. So Obama stiffs taxpayers and flies around saying stuff Soros types want to hear for mega donations. Then if all that money works and they take the house, after 2014 there will be total annihilation of the 2nd amendment by Obama and dems.

Krauthammer is a very dangerous man in the eyes of proles like Wallace. He’s been known to utter the same inanities as Wallace, but he often tells it like it is and that scares the crap outta the “go along to get along” crowd.

When do you suppose we will we hear of his “planned retirement”?

If his maximum eminence does not get what he wants out of this law i.e. at least universal background checks, he is going to throw a virtual tantrum. He is holding up his budget message perhaps to strengthen his vitriol. If he gets more than the minimum, he is going to shoot the moon on this proposal, if he doesn't get anything, it will be a
vile message for anyone against his position, even to those in his own party. His maximum eminence cannot stand to lose. I bet he kicked the dog when he missed all those basketball shots the other day because he was embarrassed publicly. This guy is a narcissist, make no mistake, and they cannot be denied. Right now he is supposedly “compromising” in his budget request. All bets are off once Reid brings this bill to the floor, they all know it. I'd love to see him throw a hissy fit on TV, in fact, I'd donate to anyone who makes it happen.

Obummer wants time killers. He's a ghetto thug/con man who stumbled onto the ultimate con. He wakes up between nine and ten and spends, on average, of three to four hours a day in the office.

He's stupid. He knows nothing about anything, but has discovered he can make people think he's involved by hammering on guns. Any fool, and a lot of fools, can do that.

He's just trying to kill time until retirement in a few years.

THE PROBLEM WITH EXPANDING BACKGTROUND CHECKS IS THAT THAT THEY WILL LEAD TO A NATIONAL REGISTRY, WHICH WILL FACILITATE GUN SEIZURE WHEN A DEMOCTAT PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS MOVE TO DISARM US AND A POLITICIZED SUPREME COURT DECIDES THE SECOND AMENDMENT NO LONGER APPLIES.

Don’t doubt the Krauth! He has remote viewing capabilities. And as a previous freeper said, Obama learned from the race pimps who want to keep things on a simmer or a boil. They don’t want solutions. Their soltions all fail when they get put into practice.

Obama is the same. He pimps the “issues” such as amnesty and gun control to bring in donations to his permanent campaign organization. The people under him share in the spoils, useless eaters who never done any real work.

So now every sale requires a background check. I see nothing that requires a background check for a one-time payment, thousand year lease. Maybe I need to read it more closely.

We got the best look at Obama as executive during the push for Obamacare. He did NOTHING! He left all the work to Pelosi and Reid.

He desperately wants the Democrats to control the House and Senate again in 2014 so that he can once again delegate the horrendous dirty deeds he plans to Pelosi and Reid. God help us!

Anybody that believes the information sent for background checks will majically disappear are sorely mistaken.

The background check WILL be the gun registry. I don’t trust ANYBODY in this government as far as I could throw them.

They have proven time and time again they can’t be trusted. Just ask the Tuskegee airmen.

These bastards heads should be on a pike.

I did not say I was in favor of any portion of these proposals including expanding background checks. If the law was such that anyone who did not prosecute the laws on the books, including the use of a firearm during a felony, was guilty of misfeasance and must be removed from office, I would go along with that though.
