As Ed Morrissey at Hot Air said so many months ago , “if your are going to make up a number, why don’t you just say the stimulus created or saved a gazillion jobs?” Indeed … and Charles nails it. Say whatever you want, make up whatever you want, the hard numbers tell another story. Read more
My heart aches on this one. Have the American people become so jaded that people are just willing to say … “Well, that’s just politicians do.” Depression. Read more
Another great moment in Charles Krauthammer history. After Republicans pointed out yesterday the waste in the President’s porkapalooza stimulus bill (money for ant research) … Krauthammer couldn’t resist the opportunity to call it like he sees it and he sees with great clarity and very little political correctness.

Indeed. Charles Krauthammer never fails to bring clarity to an argument, or rather, unfounded charges. Remember the Shirley Sherrod story exploded after the NAACP decided to label the Tea Party folks, like me, as racists, without proof and based on nothing more than wild accusations. But when you have lost the big government is the answer argument (proven by a foundering economy) then what other card can you play. Read more
Some fair and balanced video after giving so much space to MSNBC. Here were the best takes from Fox, which did not spend much time on analysis except in regular programming. Still I was kinda stunned by O’Reilly’s frankness and surprised by Krauthammer’s gentleness.
When you lose the left … what’s left? A couple of great bites but also some great insight from the left and right on the continued disenchantment with the young President, from Jack Cafferty and Charles Krauthammer. Read more
President Obama, after meeting with Senate Republicans yesterday announces he intends to spend $500 million dollars and send 1200 ANG troops to the border to help stop illegal immigration. Is Obama caving to pressure or just a well timed head fake? Well, based on what Republicans asked for, it’s a sham. Read more
Your daily dose of Charles Krauthammer. His analysis is always on … and so for your listening pleasure … the entire commentary. Read more
The subject is Afghanistan … but not the young President’s strategy. Krauthammer makes it very clear in his comments the President has every right to change his strategy … even pick a strategy. No, what Krauthammer calls childlike is Obama’s penchant for blaming everyone for his failures. To paraphrase Allahpundit at HotAir … hey, you ran on this war “chump”, you picked the strategy, this is your war to win or lose. Stop blaming your big brother.
One last thing. This another perfect example of a generation (or is it liberal ideology) that simply can’t take personal responsibility for anything. It’s always but always someone else’s fault.
Your weekend funny. Line of the day comes from Charles Krauthammer on a day when both Bill Clinton and Charles tell the young President to “cool it” with the world is coming to an end rhetoric. First Charles …
The Ex-President goes a little easier but the message is the same. You’re the President … xnay on the epressionday.
