Krauthammer: Obama 'playing
president' for Sandy, not Benghazi

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:CarrotFarmer87, 10/30/2012 10:42:22 AM

As Hurricane Sandy was approaching the Jersey Shore, President Barack Obama has suspended his campaign activities to be at the ready for the pending crisis. But on Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer wasn’t convinced it wasn’t just for political imaging purposes. Krauthammer compared Obama’s willingness to be out front on Sandy to his lack of willingness to be out front on Benghazi, which he said suggested political opportunism. “He says he’s not concerned about the impact on the elections,”

Comments:
Tomorrow or Thursday, I bet we'll be hearing the words "post-Sandy bounce for Obama."

Is he trying to show that he cares about American??? Puhleeze!!Voter's memories are not so short that they will not remember how Zippy went on campaigning in 2008 during the financial meltdown, while McCain to his own peril suspended his and ran to DC.

Thank you Charles!!

~~It is a little odd that he shows up in the briefing room, where he hasn’t shown up in the briefing room for about, what — a month and a half on Libya, or for everything else for that matter?~~

Remember how Obama forgot about all those people in the midwest when there was the ice storm just after he was elected. They were ignored will just try to use this for a few votes.

I hate that I have become such a cynical person, but I look at everything The One does anymore in the viewpoint of politics and how it will look for him. He is such an insecure person, that even being president can't be enough.

I look at how he has used every advantage of the office ~ the plane, the countless trips, the Hollywood suck-ups, the golf, the parties...all while forgetting that he actually had a JOB to do! Im truly sick of him.

Well, Chris Christie is all over the airwaves and gave a press conference praising O for the fantastic job he is doing. They talked 4 times into the night last night and again this morning and Christie said O is on top of every part of the storm situation and doing a great job. Romney won't like this nor will Krauthammer.

Chris Christie had to talk to Obama in order to get his ''disaster declaration.''

yes, Christie had to talk to Obama, but his praise of Obama today is way more than that. Christie can be thankful for the Federal help and say so, but this was personal praise for O and I have already heard him say all this several times today not prompted by any questions he had to answer.

....goes to show the difference between Republicans and democrats. One isn't afraid to give thanks or praise when it is due. Dems do not know how to take the politics out of anything.

"I'm a politician, which means I'm a liar and a cheat. When I'm not kissing babies, I'm stealing their lollipops. But it also means I keep my options open."
~~ Richard Jordan ["Jeffrey Pelt"], "The Hunt for Red October"

#6: There's a big difference between "being cynical" and being wary about people sneaking around behind you after you've had to stitch-up a bunch of knife-wounds. "Stay cynical, my friend," as the commercial might say.

#7, #9: Per #8, yes, Christie had to play supplicant so as not to risk Federal aid to New Jersey. However, effusive praise for Stinky may mean one or more of some rather negative possibilities: a. he's [Christie] too much an opportunist; b. he's too willing to lie down with the dogs; c. he's not smart enough to be properly wary of Obama [a worse sin than a or b, IMHO]; d. something else, even worse?

Actually the "great" job he is doing for a storm that is not what government is supposed to be doing just plays up his indifference on Benghazi. He just picks and chooses when he does his job. Hang the Constitution. A disgrace unparalleled in American history.

On Laura Ingraham’s radio show on Thursday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer railed against President Barack Obama’s foreign policy gestures, specifically his referral Russia as a regional earlier this week. Krauthammer blamed it on the inexperienced advisers the president has surrounded himself with in his second term and his own worldview. “This points to the fact that Obama has surrounded himself in this term, in this kind of second-term arrogance, with midgets,” Krauthammer said. “There is nobody in the high command who had the stature of Bob Gates, for example, or even a Hillary Clinton

In an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s radio show on Thursday, Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) and Ingraham sparred over the issue of immigration. Ingraham accused the North Carolina congresswoman of being on the side of the Chamber of Commerce and big business with Ellmers insisting Ingraham didn’t have a grasp of the immigration issue. “I stand with my North Carolina farmers who say this is an issue that needs to be reformed,” Ellmers said. “I’m not going to take an ignorant position as you have on this issue.”

On Jimmy Kimmel’s ABC show earlier this week, “The O’Reilly Factor” anchor Bill O’Reilly called President Barack Obama a “patriot.” On his show on Thursday night, O’Reilly reiterated that sentiment, calling “almost every president” in the country’s history “a patriot.” “I said on Kimmel that both President Bush the younger and Barack Obama are patriots because they served their country,” O’Reilly said. “You may not agree with them, alright? But I don´t think you say they´re not patriots unless you have, you know, evidence that is just through the roof. I think almost every president that´s ever served

In November, the U.S. Postal Service reported it had a $5 billion loss for Fiscal Year 2013, its seventh consecutive year with loss. At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

On Wednesday night, the official MSNBC Twitter account posted a tweet celebrating General Mills’ decision to air a biracial commercial touting Cheerios during this Sunday’s Super Bowl. However, that tweet came at the expense of suggesting “the rightwing” was racist. Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new#Cheerios ad w/ biracial family. http://on.msnbc.com/1dPgQEU The commercial titled “Gracie” is part two of last year’s popular “Just Checking” commercial for Cheerios, with the father this time using Cheerios to explain to “Gracie” she will soon have a younger sibling.

On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” Monday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer unleashed a scathing critique of the Obama administration as more and more of the flaws of ObamaCare are brought to the forefront. Krauthammer explained that as we learn many promises of the laws promotion are being left unfulfilled, it is clear a “vast deception” was at play. “That is another truth emerging,” Krauthammer said. “I think what is happening here is not just a matter of what is affordable. It is a matter of a vast deception. The idea that you can keep your doctor, you keep your plan, was meant to say

Brit Hume said Tuesday that California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s call for a fix to Obamacare is a sign of just how bad things have gotten for President Barack Obama and his administration. On Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” network senior political analyst Hume explained to host Megyn Kelly that Feinstein’s shift, after a million Californians lost their health coverage, indicates the worst is yet to come. Many more Americans are expected to have their health insurance policies canceled. “This is as bad a political disaster as I have ever seen,” Hume said.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
