Pulitzer-winning commentator Charles Krauthammer, now a Fox News analyst, says he started out as a Democrat, but then realized the "Great Society" actually hurt the nation.
Now his most admired president is Ronald Reagan and he calls himself a psychiatrist in remission.
The comments come in Krauthammer's interview with author Burt Prelutsky for Prelutsky's new book, "Portraits of Success: Candid Conversations with 60 Over-Achievers."

I remember Mona Charen brought that up to in her book Do Gooders. It was called the GRATE society.
A worthwhile article from WingNutDaily. Amazing.
Actual bumper sticker from that era:
THE GREAT SOCIETY - POVERTY FOR ALL
That’s funny about Sean Hannity. BOR may be Ted Baxter, but it sounds like Hannity is the Joe Biden of political talk hosts.
The Ingrate Society fits it better
Gimme gimme gimme gimme . . . decades later look at this nation: divorce and illegitimacy rates, abortion, crime, drugs, the music and movie cultures, public “education”
food stamps, illegal immigrants, Medicaid . . .
The list goes on and on . . .

Great quote on your part, BTW. :)
Lyndon Baines Johnson - the only President to lose two wars - Vietnam and “The War on Poverty”.
Krauthammer might know how to parrot conservative ideas.
However, this knowledge doesn’t eliminate the fact that he also knows how to take subtle but damaging potshots at the advancing edge of conservatism, while he hides behind enemy lines.
Krauthammer’s strategy is to voice his support for conservative ideas or personalities when support for them is already saturated and there’s no risk that he might actually help conservatism. And then he immediately shoots down novel ideas or new candidates when they threaten to advance conservatism against the ruling class.
Krauthammer is so ruling class it’s not even funny. I will never take him seriously.
Krauthammer came out against Palin early on.
Undoubtedly, he will be used by the ruling class as a secret weapon (along with Karl Rove) to try to stop the Palin presidency.

Over-Achieving Democrats From Kenya
These are the short, short lists.
"Shirley" you can't be serious!
You never heard of Sandy Koufax?
” Krauthammer came out against Palin early on.”
And I think I heard him say yesterday, rather quickly, that obama is the winner in the tax comprimise, and he will be re-elected.
Methinks Charles plays both sides of the street, only crossing over to the true conservative side, when the game
is clearly over
