Krauthammer Again: ‘Obama’s Speech Was Flat With No Real Content’

For the third time this week, National Syndicated Columnist and Fox News contributor, had more than harsh words about President Barack Obama’s DNC acceptance speech given Thursday evening. He called it. “one of the emptiest speeches” ever given by a presidential nominee for a major party.

“I was stunned,” he said. “This is a man who gave one of the greatest speeches of our time in 2004, and he gave one of the emptiest speeches I have ever heard on a national stage.”

Krauthammer continued to say that, as in normal Obama fashion, the speech itself was good,  but there was no substance to it, concerning the actual content of the speech, which was given to thousands of delegates, politicians, and reporters at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, N.C. We must note, that the skies were clear at the time of the Obama’s acceptance speech.

“Yes, it had cadence. And yes there were deceptions in it. That‘s not what’s striking about it,” he said. “There was nothing in it.”

He continued: “This is a man who believes that government can and should do a lot. There’s nothing in here that tells us how he is going to go from today to tomorrow. And what government is going to do, what’s he going to enact? At least Romney had a five-point plan.”

Krauthammer continued to drill Obama about how the president continues to present his personal agenda to the American people, but never has offered any real plan on how to get there.

“I have a vision of America where there is no disease and everyone has a private airplane, but unless I tell you how to get there, I’ve said nothing,” he added. “I am simply amazed — this is a guy who is the A student in the class who turns in a paper that is clearly a C.

Also, Vice President Joe Biden delivered his speech and Krauthammer commented that Biden’s speech was “infinitely better” than the president’s. “The Obama speech I thought was flat and had no content in it. Otherwise, I loved it really.”

Charles Krauthammer Is At It Again: Shows Displeasure with Clinton Speech

Nationally Syndicated Columnist and Fox News Contributor Charles Krauthammer is again, not impressed with a DNC Speech. After showing his displeasure towards the speech that Michelle Obama gave Tuesday night, Krauthammer said former President Bill Clinton’s speech was “sprawling, undisciplined, and truly self-indulgent”, and that the speech, “would not help President Obama’s re-election chances.”

“I think it was a giant swing and a miss,” Krauthammer said to Bret Baier yesterday evening. “I don’t think it will move the needle whatsoever.”

“It was engaging, it was humorous, in some cases it was generous – I think there were more mentions of the Bush’s than I heard in three days in Tampa,” Krauthammer added. “It was also vintage Clinton in that it was sprawling, undisciplined, and truly self-indulgent.”

Later in the interview, Krauthammer added that Clinton’s DNC speech was “one of the strangest nomination speeches ever given.”

“It was kind of amalgam between the state of the union address, a policy wonk seminar and what sounded to me like a campaign speech for a third Clinton term – Obama was sort of incidental, he would be shoved in every once in a while,” Krauthammer said.

It is true that he made a lot of detailed rebuttals, that he is sort of the rebuttler-in-chief, but Paul Ryan can handle all of that in 10 minutes in his debate,” Krauthammer concluded.

Santorum’s Sweep of 3 [Non-Binding] Caucuses Proves He is the Only Conservative Running?

At least that is what the political operatives were saying last night on Fox News, especially Charles Krauthammer while he was on the O’Reilly show. This comes after CK stated that Santorum is the first “admirably worthy conservative alternative” to Mitt Romney in the Washington Post  back on Jan. 5.  Today, the big political “news” is that Rick Santorum has swept all three of last night’s caucuses/fake [non-binding] primaries in Missouri, Colorado and Minnesota. Brett Bair (also of Fox News) referred to these three caucuse/primary votes last night as non-binding beauty contests, with no actual delegates being won by a victory. For the rest of this week, expect to hear such flowery phrases as “Santorum has gained momentum and could see a campaign fundraising boost”  or  “Santorum is the conservative alternative to Mitt [ Jello} Romney,” blah blah blah.  This is the political dog and pony show of faux sensationalistic media circus acts that sadly passes as news reporting today. Is it any wonder that people are so politically uninformed today that they would elect a junior Senator from the political corruption capitol of the world as the President of the United States on an undefined “Hope and Change” fraud? In a nutshell, yes it does and yes they did.

Mr. Krauthammer is largely considered to be a brilliant political analyst with excellent oratory skills today. Keeping that in mind, how do his “Santorum is a worthy conservative” statements stack up against Senator Rick Santorum’s actual voting record?  Not very well, if you were brave enough to check out the truth in that fact-sheet. Krauthammer appears to have fallen into the exact same category of the once respectable conservative pundit and leftist basher extraordinaire, Ms. Ann Coulter. That would be the “say anything for a buck and to get attention while ignoring true conservative principles” category that Coulter exhibits today in her “vote for the proven conservative Mitt Romney campaign.”  Is she referring to this Mitt Romney,  when she went on her recent tirade of praising Romneycare  after trashing it back in November?  Ann Coulter’s recent flip-flop off the conservative high dive into the “elect the only candidate who is moderate enough to beat Barack Obama” cess pool of say-anything-for-a-buck irresponsibility, is an astounding about-face. When Coulter speaks about the mob-mentality that she has explained in recent books so often, maybe there should be a chapter titled “Us flip-floppers have to stick together.”

As far as Charles Krauthammer goes, he has to try to protect his high-paying, high-wire conservative commentary act [and reputation], while also putting out enough controversial statements, [see Santorum is a worthy conservative above] that gain attention, TV viewers, and readers, to justify his next fat contract with Fox News. The fact remains that, as proven in the above-linked article on Santorum’s voting record, he is a proven big-government conservative. How’s that for the ultimate in oxymorons?

Finally, the only proven conservative in the GOP candidate field, Newt Gingrich is being trampled, lied about, and smeared by the likes of Coulter, Krauthammer and the establishment GOP in true Democratic Attack Machine  fashion.  Is Newt Gingrich really a proven conservative?  This article  shows us just what Gingrich accomplished in a very tough political environment. Despite the D.A.M. lies and misinformation about the balanced budgets during Speaker Gingriches tenure, (which are heavily promoted in most browser searches) this article points  out just why Gingrich is a danger to the old guard, establishment GOP that has had a big hand in our trillion-dollar-deficits.

Amid all the tax-cutting and agency consolidations (in Newt’s plans if elected POTUS) would come a return to a fiscal policy that he said emanates “directly from the Reagan playbook.”

“I think these kinds of steps would move us toward a very dramatic job growth, which is the best way to move towards a balanced budget—by getting people off of unemployment, off of Medicaid, off of food stamps, get them back into earning a living and paying taxes,” he said.

Gingrich wants to limit the size and scope of government, which would cut off the big government grifters entrenched in DC from buying votes and influence with taxpayer dollars. Gingrich also wants to limit the government to spending less what they take in each year, as in creating a true balanced budget, yet the mainstream media talking points never include these important facts.  Our government has gotten so big that we are now approaching $16 trillion dollars in debt, which equals our entire GDP.

Ask Greece how that scenario works out. They too, ignored the serious-minded fiscally conservative candidates for the last 20 years or so, only to elect moderates just like Mitt Romney and numerous” big government conservatives”  like Rick Santorum. Barack Obama has loaded up the back seat of the failed Chevy Volt with our entire economy and will drive it right off the Greek-style debt cliff if given another four years. Electing so-called “electable moderates” and “big government conservatives” will also crash and burn the U.S economy just like the firebomb now known as the Chevy Volt will do, when it plunges off the debt cliff and hits rock bottom.
