Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer had some harsh words for Barack Obama Friday.
Appearing on Fox Newss Special Report, Krauthammer said, It's as if this guy discovers everything late, as if he wandered into the White House on a White House tour and discovered himself in the Oval Office as president.

BRET BAIER, HOST: What about this whole thing that his take, Charles, that government is not good at certain things, and we're looking to consolidate some agencies, and yet his administration, when describing the success that they're having now, says that the website is operating at private sector velocity?
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: And this is after he's argued for basically half a decade now in office that government is the font of American enterprise and success. If you built it, its not you, its the government.
It's just amazing how he right now in the middle, in the beginning, well, in the middle of his second term, he says there's a real problem here with the big agencies, some of which are outdated and not designed properly. So he discovers this three years after he decided to pass a bill that would consign a sixth of the U.S. economy the entire ecosystem of American medicine - into the hands of precisely an outdated and improperly designed bureaucracy, i.e. HHS.
It's interesting how he discovers everything late. A month ago in that press conference he held where he apologized, sort of semi-apologized, he said he hadn't quite realized how hard it is to purchase health insurance. And this is, of course, after, three years after he nationalizes the purchase of health insurance.
And this reminds me of the time when after, remember he said that he discovered no-shovel ready jobs? But he discovers that after he passes a trillion dollar spending bill on the argument that there are all these shovel-ready jobs that will stimulate a depressed economy.
It's as if this guy discovers everything late, as if he wandered into the White House on a White House tour and discovered himself in the Oval Office as president.
There was never a better or more insightful description of Barry.
President Jarrett is not amused by these shenanigans.
He is the “Innocent Bystander” president. After five years he still behaves like he is on the outside looking in and campaigning for a chance to change things.
Bravo Charles, walk off home run. Classic!
It’s going to end badly for Barry & Co...
The Ron Burgundy presidency.
It’s way past time for that moron to wander back out.
PEERFECT METAPHOR! Go Charles!
I still have trouble understanding why the tour guides let em IN at all !
its sort of touching the way Obama believes in the power of rhetoric his rhetoric in denying and trumping reality.
barrys a backdoor man....
President For A Day and has not picked the day yet ,LOL
If only he could be found aimlessly wandering the streets after discovering he isn't the president.
For someone who is the smartest human who ever lived, who is like, light years ahead of the rest of us, he really doesn’t seem to know very much of anything at all.
I believe Rush Limbaugh has been saying this all along. He calls it the Limbaugh Theorem. The gist is that Obama causes a problem and then turns around and campaigns like he is the problem solver with a tiny bit of help from the MSM.
Props to Krauty, on this one.
I would love to meet Krauthammer.
Charles is great!
Krauthammer is a trained psychiatrist. It would be interesting to get his take on Obama’s psychopathy.
No one could blame him for all his odd and strangely unAmerican press conferences as a”Pwesident Ewect”.
What an insufferable boob with a marginally nebish personality .
He found out he was president the same we all did.
He was hangover and upon reading the newspaper exclaimed same”W in TF?!”
...Like a Forest Gump without the smarts.
Obama is dumber than donuts.
Obama is Walter Mitty.
He is spot on, but the lesson here is that a Harvard MD in psychiatry gets his ideas from a Missouri high school graduate who had to be driven to the nearest college for A YEAR cuz he hated academics soooo much.
Charles is just clinicizing an observation that Rush makes about twice every day.
I’m President Obama?
Damn it! Who put the question mark on the teleprompter?
Or Chauncey Gardiner with a black thumb.
Now if we could just slip a resignation speech onto the prompter.
It’s a cargo cult mentality. He’s never been close enough to hard work and actual enterprise to disabuse himself of the notion that white folks steal the finished products of the gods off a recently landed C-47.
This will not end well. I can’t see Obama becoming an elder statesman. When it happens—it will be quick—that’s all I know—the how is still up in the air—but Happen it will. He will not finish his term in office.
That's much more than one well respected US IT firm offered to do the project for: THEY'D HAVE DONE IT FOR FREE!!
Compare those to the estimated $1 BILLION this SOB has shuttled to his cronies for this turkey and I think even the most devoted obozo worshiper can grasp the magnitude of the CORRUPTION in this on-going CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE!!! (Well that's almost certainly an overstatement...)
WHERE THE HELL IS CONGRESS IN ALL OF THIS?
ANSWER: On their computers checking their numbered Swiss accounts to be certain the proper amount was deposited!!!!
IF THIS DOESN'T P.I.S.S. Y.O.U. O.F.F. you aren't paying attention and you're certainly too stupid to vote.
We need an angry electoral tsunami to sweep the parasites on the Potomac OUT of Malfunction Junction in the next cycles!! Anything short of that and we're TOAST!!
We, every one of us, should be hoping, praying and WORKING to ensure that Ophonybama and his LIEberal/Socialist/Marxist/Fascist minions come to a bad end!
If we all do just a little bit more and work just a little harder, we can end this nightmare!
No qualification what-so-ever.
A fraud, a liar, a cheat and a scoundrel.
Rush said it’s like Colonel Sanders saying someone has GOT to stop killing all these chickens.
It is NOT going to end badly for Obama.....it’s going to end badly for AMERICA!!
Trayvon’s daddy is smart enough to know how STUPID half of Americans are!!
Around 1980, I came to work for a year around a Vietnam War vet...former Marine. His method of surviving the war and it’s stresses...marijuana...daily. After the year, he smoked weed at least once or twice a day. It worked to combat PTSD.
A dozen years later, as I’ve come to work around him....I’ve come to notice two interesting things. He’s got lousy short-term memory. You could tell him something at 9AM and by noon....he’s forgotten half of what you told him.
The second thing was long-term memory loss. There were certain thing of boot-camp in the Marines....that were hazy and he just couldn’t fill in the squares. Same with high school.
After this story of the week of the President suddenly remembering his uncle....I paused over the stories of young Barry doing weed daily (sometimes several times a day), and how this went on for a minimum of ten years. Bluntly, he’s got short-memory lapses and it’s now obvious that Ms Jarrett is more than just a gate-keeper....she manages him and reminds him of things. Long-term memory lapses? I’d take a guess that it comes up a dozen times a week now.
How would you manage eight years as President under these conditions? You’d rely on the chief of staff to help manage your life, along with your wife, and just act your way through the whole thing.
It’s best to say....we got a forgetful ex-doper, who does the best he can, and you got three more years of this to go.
One can only all of these nobama-criminals have solitary cells.
obama likes being there. Hope and Chance.
i’d like to see him and many of his lawbreaking minions hanging
It’s the Rush Theorem: If Obama “appears” to be governing-—he would then have to take responsibility for the consequences of his actions-—something he is loathe to do.
he dose that because the media allows him to get away with it.
