But you don’t understand, nothing we do short of dropping it will be considered “just the facts.” Ever. Never. Period.
What OTHERS are you referring to? The Lame Stream Media? Democrat politicians? If this hadn't been spearheaded by conservatives (both in politics and outside of politics) no one would be talking about any of these scandals today. If the families of those killed in Benghazi didn't speak out no one on the left would be remotely concerned. If the families of the SEALS killed in Afghanistan a few months after the "Bin Laden" "raid" were not airing their concerns regarding Extortion 17, who would even know about it?
Krauthammer is an idiot. There isn't anyone outside of conservatives who are spotlighting these scandals.
Of course, there’s always that Napoleon maxim: Never interfere with your enemy when he’s engaged in destroying himself.
Now you see Krauthammer for what he is. The Kraut is NOT A CONSERVATIVE, and here are some others; Chris Wallace, Brett Hume, Bill O’Reilly, the Chamber of Commerce, the Heritage Society, RNC, GOP, then there are all the little Trotskyites in the Rep Party. Wake up and realize the Republicans are nothing but small L leftist that love Big Government, they will never, ever, never be anything else. See how they all treat the Tea Party??? Believe it, DC is an immediate and urgent threat to you and your family’s well being.... they want you subdued or DEAD!
“Sit back, be quiet and let the other side be consumed by the inferno.”
“Be quiet”? What? This is outrageous. Congressmen should be screaming about it and demanding independent prosecutors to get all the facts and put people in jail. Be quiet my arse.
Best post yet. I agree, this is no way to ‘play’ this that would ever ever ever make the dems/commies/low info voters think higher of conservatives, never!
And to the idiot poster way at the top, not sure the name, calling Rush a liability for our side is about as naive a comment I have ever heard.
Isn’t that the definition of sheeple?
That's actually not bad advice.
It's probably not going to affect how liberals behave, but better to be the person who says "This may not be Watergate but it's very important to get to the bottom of it" than the person who says "This is Watergate."
Better to be the person who can't be easily ignored or dismissed as obviously partisan, rather than the person who can.
Better not let your passions get in the way of your argument.
But politics nowadays is more about expressing emotion or striking poses than about formulating strategies to get things done.
The only thing I wish to add is that back in 2009-10, Krauthammer visably winced at the “town hall protests” with people publicly confronting the politicians. Ditto the tea-party events. He said they looked bad, and would backfire on the Republicans in the 2010 mid-terms. He was wrong, obviously. Very wrong.
I’m also still annoyed at how Krauthammer condescendingly criticized Palin for her “death panels” Facebook posting, and stating she should “leave the room”... and then immediately after that, Krauthammer went on to basically repeat EXACTLY the same points Palin had been making in her posting. Made him appear quite a jerk.
He may be right here, or he may be wrong. Whatever the case, his track-record on such matters isn’t too hot, to put it mildly.
If we go beyond the current several crisis and say, for example, “The Obama Administration is the most corrupt in history,” the left and the press will argue that claim instead of the abuse at hand. I’ve already seen news reports excusing Obama because “Irangate was worse and Reagan skated.”
If you keep it at, “The IRS illegally targeted conservative groups, who knew and who ordered it?” It’s harder to let it slide. I don’t want to argue about past administrations, I want Obama front and center.
The low-information voter has no knowledge of Watergate, Iran-Contra, or Tea Pot Dome. They know more about Khloe Kardashian than they do George Washington.
Someone push his damned wheelchair over.
The bigger issue is that it pretty much says that the media and the Dems hold all the cards. The GOP and the conservative media have no power other than to hurt themselves.
Which means it is time for a different tactic.
Actually he’s suggesting we save Barry’s rear end and in my opinion we should not.

Mmmmm yes, acting like limp wristed pansies has worked so well for htem in the past Charles- why let’s just keep right on with that ‘winning strategy’ you dolt!
Charles needs to advise Obama of this. He’s going on national television at 6 PM apparently to talk about one of his scandals.
That's for sure. So I hope they are as aggressive and methodical as possible. There's more than enough out there right now to keep the 0bama administration on the defensive, so now is not the time for timidity.
“I think Krauthammer is right...”
I can’t think of a single thing that Krauthammer has done to advance the conservative cause.
If you know of such an incident, please refresh my poor memory. I think that Charles is a RINO impeller, providing impetus to such sterling senators as McCain and Graham.
