Krauthammer on “Lame Duck Session”: “Every current member should be publicly asked, in the event you lose in November…”
Will our republic be destroyed (more than it’s been already) during the “lame duck session” in November? Will Democrats with nothing to lose vote against this country for private personal gain (from President Obama)? RedState or the Heritage Foundation or FreedomWorks or the tea parties (Michele Bachmann?) or any good government group should protect this country now by holding our elected officials’ feet to the | Read More »
Why Does Obama Want an Israel Crisis?
Charles Krauthammer has the top story at Human Events today. Why did President Barack Obama choose to turn a gaffe into a crisis in U.S.-Israeli relations?And a gaffe it was: the announcement by a bureaucrat in the Interior Ministry of a housing expansion in a Jewish neighborhood in north Jerusalem. The timing could not have been worse: Vice President Joe Biden was visiting, Jerusalem is | Read More »

Nowhere Man’s Address…Return To Sender. Obama’s Bomb.
I promised you the same repackaged garbage that our President has been putting out all along, with some fresh and a little recycled liberal garbage thrown in for garnish… and he delivered in spades. In the second longest speech in the history of state-of-the-union messages, Barack Obama presided over a real yawner, (ask Harry Reid) and managed to unify Republican, Independent and Conservative opposition to | Read More »
Krauthammer Classic (“Medicalizing Mass Murder”)
Charles Krauthammer’s Friday Washington Post column adds insights that only he can provide. . “How many of those doctors commit mass murder? It’s been decades since I practiced psychiatry. Perhaps I missed the epidemic.” . “After all, secondary PTSD, for those who believe in it (you won’t find it in DSM-IV-TR, psychiatry’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual), is known as ‘compassion fatigue.’ The poor man — | Read More »
My Top 7 Most Influential Conservatives
Former Bush advisor and notorious conservative electioneer Karl Rove came up with his list of the top 7 most influential conservatives in these United States for Forbes magazine. I disagree partially with his list. Here’s his list in order – Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader John Boehner, Senate Minority Whip John Kyl, House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, Representative Paul Ryan, Heritage Foundation | Read More »
‘Kraut-hammer.’ Very droll, Newsweek.
Newsweek’s Jonathan Alter, in the process of telling the Democrats that they need to da*n the torpedoes and go full speed ahead, drops this gem: Charles Kraut-hammer doesn’t represent any swing voters. Not having the print edition of Newsweek handy – like pretty much the rest of America – I don’t know if this is reproduced there. But I’m curious: is the ethnic sneer there | Read More »
ObamaCare: The Only Exit Strategy
Charles Krauthammer has the top story at Human Events today. Obamacare Version 1.0 is dead. The 1,000-page monstrosity that emerged in various editions from Congress was done in by widespread national revulsion not just at its expense and intrusiveness but at the mendacity with which it is being sold. You don’t need a Ph.D. to see that the promise to expand coverage and reduce costs | Read More »
Charles Krauthammer Proposes a Reasonable Way to Start Healthcare Reform
He’s already written a superb couple of columns about why Obamacare is sinking and why Obama is retreating from it. Now, he’s got a couple of novel ideas on how we can begin the reform of our healthcare system. He gives us these in his latest piece at the Washington Post.
The Health Care overhaul – it’s all about the “O”
Presidents generally start thinking about their legacy in the months before their terms end. In the case of Barack Obama, his self-absorption began shortly after his election (well, it actually probably began shortly after birth, but I have no information about that period of his life…). He has thrived on the cult of personality that developed around him during his campaign and thereafter. He’s addicted | Read More »
The Moon we abandoned, actually.
Somber opinions on the space program from Charles Krauthammer: WASHINGTON — Michael Crichton once wrote that if you had told a physicist in 1899 that within a hundred years humankind would, among other wonders (nukes, commercial airlines), “travel to the moon, and then lose interest … the physicist would almost certainly pronounce you mad.” In 2000, I quoted these lines expressing Crichton’s incredulity at America’s | Read More »
Iran: The Biggest Domino
I know it’s redundant to tell people to read Charles Krauthammer – really, you are doing Friday wrong if you don’t read his column every week – but he boils down the essential stakes in Iran neatly, and reminds us that this isn’t just about Ahmadenijad vs Mousavi. Samples: [T]his incipient revolution is no longer about the election. Obama totally misses the point. The election | Read More »
Fiddling as Tehran burns.
Charles Krauthammer, a man who is apparently constitutionally incapable of suffering fools at all (and never mind ‘gladly’), waxed wroth on the implication that the President’s response to the ongoing Iranian crisis was in any way similar to Pope John Paul II’s response to the Solidarity strikers: The president is also speaking in code. The Pope spoke in a code which was implicit and understood | Read More »
Time’s Joe Klein Says People in Wheelchairs Can’t ‘See’ the World?
On May 20, Politico had an interesting little treatment of columnist Charles Krauthammer crowning him as the most important conservative columnist of the day. A brief overview of his life and his emergence as the most reliable voice against Obamaism served as the main subject for the piece, but a few quotes on Mr. Krauthammer made by other columnists added a sense of how respected | Read More »
