Fox News Channel contributor Julie Roginsky took a shot at President Barack Obama’s critics on Wednesday, particularly syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer. Roginsky said that Krauthammer has begun to appear reflexively opposed to any of the president’s proposals, regardless of their merit. She proceeded to diagnose Krauthammer as having come down with “Obama derangement syndrome,” a play on a charge that Krauthammer himself had leveled at President George W. Bush‘s critics in the last decade. (Snip) Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly invited her panel guests to weigh in on a comment made by Krauthammer on Tuesday night’s The O’Reilly Factor
Comments: Roginsky is just another mindless Democrat who does nothing but spew talking points. It is easy to predict what she and others will say before they even speak.
Since November 2nd, I have not turned on Fox News and feel much the better for it. Don´t know who the lady is but she is right, the right does suffer from ODS. Get over it, we lost, the country lost. You can´t beat Santa Claus. why beat a dead horse for the next 4 years? All conservatives should ditch the GOP and go libertarian. Forget the social issues, those were lost 20+ million abortions ago. Try to agree on fiscal conservatism and getting the countries finances on track. Let the gays marry, who cares? I´m done...
None of obama´s proposals has any merit so Charlie is right on the money. Whenever I see her face or hear her voice I turn on TV Land. A 35 year old rerun is better than anything that would come out of her mouth.
Saying Krauthammer has Obama Derangement Syndrome because he is reflexively opposed to Obama´s policies is not a fair comparison to the Left´s BDS. Not only did the Left reflexively oppose ANYTHING GWB would say or do or propose, but they had "Buck Fush" bumper stickers, made movies and off-Broadway shows about killing the President, joked openly about assassination, and sttacked him and his family in every media forum. I can only wish the same for Obama. As to "reflexively disagreeing," I can honestly that, with the sole exception of award ceremonies he held for military honors and medals, THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE THING that Obama has said, done, or proposed that I agree with. This fool has been wrong--really, stupidly wrong--on everything 100% of the time. And that ain´t "reflexive."
Perhaps I´m mistaken but, was Krauthammer fairly conciliatory toward an Obama Presidency in the waning months of 2008? That´s the way I remember it and, I recall being disappointed in him then. Seems to me he gave ZERO a pretty good look before realizing just what he was and pulling back from the dark side. (no pun intended)
I am sure Mr. K cries into his pillow every night upset that this idiot is trashing him. I don´t think he gives a hoot what anyone says as he believes in free speech. I never miss him if he is on. Smart and I believe that he is a medical doctor also but cannot practice because of his physical condition.
Dr K. has the respect of more viewers than probably any other analyst on TV. Sometimes we only turn on Fox Cable News just to see him and the panel, and then we return to what we were previously doing, and if was watching TV, it definitely was not one of the MSM channels. I can state categorically that I have not watched NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, for 5 minutes in the last two years, ( other than for sports ).
This is but one of the Left`s tactics being used to take back the House in 2014. Paint all republicans and Tea Party members as `extremists`. That`s the new mantra. you`ll hear it early an often between now and the election. Also, the Left is confident the GOP will not regain the senate in 2014.
Once again, the GOP is left in the dust. They are stumbling around bumping into each other with zero plans to combat the democrats. No response from them to anything the dems do or say.
We are truly lost as a nation. The dems know exactly where to go to steal an election. They have it down pat.
Fox makes a point of being fair and balanced---Krautheimer is fair and Roginsky is that balance they feel they have to inject........have seen her multiple times and she is SO talking points Dem she should mail it in.
Roginsky is apparently just another dem pawn & media tool but such statist siren songs as hers, broadcast by the lefty/libs of the past few decades, has indeed led many poor little sheeple voters astray. mmm mmm mmm
However, that once effective dem con song has grown stale and is beginning to fall flat as those decieved by the dem politicos and their disasterous policies are finding themselves crashing on the rocks of dispair as we all start 2013.
Charles Krauthammer does not fall for the politicos´ flim/flams & trickery and THAT so annoys the devious dem politicos! LOL!
#21, Apologies... apparently I misspoke. I went back and checked the archives and found nothing incriminating regarding Charles´ position with respect to Obama. Perhaps I was thinking of another (besides P.Noonan).
In my defense, it was over four years ago and I am getting (and feeling) older all the time.
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
