Krauthammer: It’s not a scalpel or a hatchet, or even a Q-Tip

Your daily dose of Charles Krauthammer. His analysis is always on … and so for your listening pleasure … the entire commentary.

During the campaign Obama dissed a proposal by John McCain to freeze discretionary spending. Obama called it a hatchet when what was needed was a scalpel.

Obama’s had a change of heart, and Krauthammer calls him on it. I would have called it a band aid. But, Charles is much more blunt.


Just as a refresher … here’s a little campaign stuff from Obama courtesy of Hot Air.

    Right….We are just going to freeze over the north end of Hell. Good luck with that. More of the same old BS ing the critical issue of budget cuts.

    If we ever see Obama's college transcripts, I feel confident that we will not see a single economics course, and if we did, he would have failed it.


    Heck, he is even failing common sense (in addition to lunch!)….

    Ever notice that Krauthammer doesn't need teleprompters?
