  • Krauthammer: Romney Simply Doesn’t Have Capacity To Explain Conservative Ideas

    Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer sat down with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and opined that Newt Gingrich won last night’s debate — in fact, he “won big.” Krauthammer criticized Mitt Romney‘s mediocre debate performance and was incredulous at how the former Massachusetts Governor wasn’t prepared for a question on his tax returns. “How could he not have prepared a nice short succinct humane answer about what he did at Bain?” Krauthammer perplexedly exclaimed. “He didn’t really have that — he kind of stumbled around.” RELATED: Rick Perry Challenges Romney: ‘Mitt, We Need For You To Release Your Income Tax’ O’Reilly wondered...
  • Santorum's Experiment in Truth-Telling

    Even though he is a columnist for The Washington Post, Charles Krauthammer often makes shrewd observations about American politics. On Fox News the night before the Iowa caucuses, however, Krauthammer indulged in a false appeal to common knowledge -- before casually dismissing Rick Santorum as a nonviable presidential candidate Bill O'Reilly asked: Who is going to win Iowa? "I'll tell you that it's win, place and show, everybody knows: Romney, Santorum and Ron Paul," Krauthammer responded. "And I'm not sure it will matter either way, because Santorum has a one-in-50 chance of winning the nomination. Paul has zero chance." As...

    Obama cannot run on his record (Obamacare, Frank-Dodd, Porkulus, the bailouts, Obamacare exemptions for some and and some states, but not others, green jobs, etc, ) and doesn't want to run on his record. He will smear the eventual GOP nominee, and run a negative campaign, and actually let superpacs do it for him. Same with Romney. He cannot run on his record as governor, his position on global warming, etc, and so, sit back, say nothing, and allow superpacss to run his GOP opponents (like Gingrich) into the ground through negative campaigning. I don't care for Newt "Scozzafava" Gingrich,...

    George Will might have fired the first shots and the Wall Street Journal and National Review might have answered the call – but the leader of Establishment Media’s war against Newt Gingrich is now clearly Charles Krauthammer of Fox News. The long time former speechwriter for ultra liberal Walter Mondale uses several minutes of his time on the “Panel” each and every night to denigrate Gingrich personally while talking down the Former Speaker’s election chances. “Remember, this is the man who was calling Barack Obama elegant long after most Americans had seen through the teleprompter” said C. Edmund Wright of...

    Krauthammer: Eric Holder ‘one of the most incompetent attorneys general in US history’ Jeff Poor - The Daily Caller 52 mins ago Last week, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder suggested racism was behind the attacks he was facing for the missteps his Department of Justice has made. On Friday’s “Special Report with Bret Baier” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer explained what he thought was the rationale behind this charge from Holder: It’s a defensive tactic for his political troubles. “It’s clearly a cheap shot of an attorney general who is in political trouble,” Krauthammer said....

    The Pipeline SelloutObama puts politics over nation, again. In 2008, the slogan was “Yes We Can.” For 2011–12, it’s “We Can’t Wait.” What happened in between? Candidate Obama, the vessel into which myriad dreams were poured, met the reality of governance.His near–$1 trillion stimulus begat a stagnant economy with 9 percent unemployment. His attempt at Wall Street reform left in place a still too-big-to-fail financial system as vulnerable today as when he came into office. His green-energy fantasies yielded Solyndra cronyism and a cap-and-trade regime not even a Democratic Congress would pass.And now his signature achievement, Obamacare, is headed to...

    Barack Obama was a principled opponent of the Iraq War from its beginning. But when he became president in January 2009, he was handed a war that was won. The surge had succeeded. Al-Qaida in Iraq had been routed, driven to humiliating defeat by an Anbar Awakening of Sunnis fighting side-by-side with the infidel Americans. Even more remarkably, the Shiite militias had been taken down, with American backing, by the forces of Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. They crushed the Sadr militias from Basra to Sadr City. Al-Qaida decimated. A Shiite prime minister taking a decisively nationalist line. Iraqi Sunnis...

    Say what you want about former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain’s presidential bid and his missteps along the way, but it’s hard to argue with results: Cain has an edge in the average of the major polls, and even picked up a straw poll victory in Nevada on Friday. But that doesn’t impress syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer. “[I] saw him on ‘Stossel’ on abortion — entirely incoherent,” Krauthammer said. “On one hand, ‘people ought to have choice.’ On the other hand, ‘life is sacred from the beginning and abortion ought to be illegal.’ This isn’t a complicated issue. It’s one...

    The Scapegoat Strategy By Charles Krauthammer October 13 What do you do if you can’t run on your record — on 9 percent unemployment, stagnant growth and ruinous deficits as far as the eye can see? How to run when you are asked whether Americans are better off than they were four years ago and you are compelled to answer no? Play the outsider. Declare yourself the underdog. Denounce Washington as if the electorate hasn’t noticed that you’ve been in charge of it for nearly three years. But above all: Find villains. President Obama first tried finding excuses, blaming America’s...

    Does anybody else notice the HUGE push among the media elites (Rove, Krauthammer, et al) for Romney, now that Cain is showing powerful gains? I have to say, the more they say Romney's a foregone conclusion, the deeper my heels dig in against him. Not because he's a Mormon, but because he WANTS it too much - has been running since the last election, and I WON'T have "them" dictate who our nominee will be. Colonel, USAFR

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry has apparently learned the hard way that in a high-stakes presidential campaign, you’re not just accountable for what you and your campaign staff say, you’re also accountable for what your supporters say. According to Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer, Perry should address an emerging media frenzy about one of his supporters, Rev. Robert Jeffress, who at the Values Voter Summit on Friday denounced former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s candidacy due to his adherence to Mormonism, which he called “a cult.” Krauthammer expects to hear questions about Romney’s religion at Tuesday night’s GOP debate. ...more (w/video)...

No, I’m not talking about the collapse of the euro, of international finance, of the Western economies, of the democratic future, of the unipolar moment, of the American dream, of French banks, of Greece as a going concern, of Europe as an idea, of Pax Americana — the sinews of a postwar world that feels today to be unraveling.

  • Krauthammer: Mid-election cycle SCOTUS ruling on ObamaCare a ‘win-win’ for president (Video)

    One the best shots opponents of ObamaCare have at defeating the 2009 law isn’t its repeal through the legislative process. Instead, it is said the bill could be ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court for its mandate requiring individuals to purchase health insurance. And that would force Obama or the next occupant of the White House to start all over on reforming health care. However, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer doesn’t think that the judicial system acting on the issue and rendering judgment will be a bad thing for the president either way. On Friday’s “Special Report,” Krauthammer said either...

    Last May, the Democratic Party ran a TV ad with the man that looked similar to Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan pushing an elderly woman in a wheelchair off a cliff. It was meant to send the message that the GOP had its sights set on cutting entitlements, a message that proved effective Democratic Rep. Kathy Hochul in the New York 26th congressional district special election later that month. But since then, President Barack Obama has hinted at the possibility of cutting entitlements to resolve some of the debt issues the country is facing. And that according to Washington Post...
