Ole Chuck is a recovered Democrat. Then again, McCain, Graham and other RINOS are probably saying the same thing.
Charles would prefer his dinner companion not be totally exposed for what he is.
But wasn’t that Krauthammer’s point? let OTHERS make the point that it’s like watergate. Sit back, be quiet and let the other side be consumed by the inferno.
Kraut and Rush both want the Clown to suffer get nailed for breaking the law. They have different pieces of advice on how to do it...
The media, at least for now, DOES seem to have some interest in this story...
the Republicans CAN go overboard, but it doesn’t hurt to keep the information flowing.
I would just like to point out—Karl Rove is running ads attacking Hitlery...and I have seen FREEPers here rip him for doing so....attacking Rove’s motivation.
Now here comes Kraut saying DON’T attack Hitlery, and we have FREEPers here saying HE is wrong.
So just as there is diversity among FREEPers regarding the best action, I think there will be diversity among the conservative punditry and among the Republican elected officials.
The IRS went after TEA party and prolife groups.
Did you ever stop and think that maybe they did so at the request of the GOP?
And yet, if you read any of the libturd screeds from those days, you would absolutely swear that they were going after Clinton because he had sex, sex, sex.
In a way it really does not matter what we say on this side. Yeah, we gotta hammer the facts home, but the libturds will have their say.
Right now, I think they are in a state of shock to know that ObamaLied, lied to them.
When that shock wears off they will be back on his bandwagon lapping up his crap.
I think Krauthammer is right-be cool-let the paranoia build till it is so out of control that the driveby media are selling the scandal on the street corners-just like Watergate...
So McQueeg and now Krauthammer want a Select Committee? How many RINOs are going to have to pile on this idea to convince people it’s a bad idea?
We already have a fine committee working on this, Issa’s. A Select Committee will give the Rats a chance to bog it down before it even starts by getting into prolonged fights over who will be on it. We’ll end up with a committee full of Thomas Pickerings who will produce a whitewash and save Obastard. The only thing Issa lacks is subpoena power, and that can be easily rectified.
I never found any logic in “keeping quiet.” Not today with the Alinsky tactics in full swing. Plus, Sour Kraut - the Sarah Palin hater - is not my favorite.
K isn’t saying be mum about all this. Basically, he is reminding us of the old rule that when your opponent is self-destructing, stay out of the way.
I think Williams comparing Obama to Nixon was exactly what Krauthammer was getting at. We know the media loves the dems. Something inside them is fighting against this negative narrative. By vocally agreeing with the media - who believe they’re “doing something wrong” by going after the dems - the Republicans run the risk of turning the media against them.
Krauthammer believes by the republicans keeping quiet, the media will continue the negative Obama narratives. He saying when your enemy is making a mistake - let him.
Pros and cons to both approaches - probably no right or wrong way to go about it.
There is some truth in what Krauthammer’s statement.
Like the old saying goes, “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a fool of himself.”
I’m not sure where the line is...
Byron York pretty much said the same thing this morning on Fox.
Of course Krauthammer is right.
There is no IF about it.
Krauthammer hates the TEA Partiers, and particularly Sarah Palin. He doesn’t want them to be right about being spied upon by Big Government. And these revelations have proven they were absolutely right in their accusations.
Grow up, Krauthammer. You have been proven wrong and an apology is due.
The point of reminding viewers of Watergate, Iran-Contra, etc., is to point to the HYPOCRISY of how a Democrat is portrayed in a scandal, vs. a Republican in LESS-TREASONOUS ACTS being forced from Office, being humiliated Publicly, or having his career RUINED by innuendo and over-blown hype of non-public-impact acts.
Kraut is almost always wrong with his first statements on anything. Then he comes out later and says some clarifying remarks that are right, but are 180 degrees from his initial statement.
Yet, I am told to celebrate him as some brilliant strategist.
I think that “gloating” before the victory is won seldom works. So let’s NOT go into a trash-talking happy-face mode when we should be asking:
(1) WHY was the “security” in Benghazi so feeble?
There was a theory floating around that our government had planned for Ambassador Stevens to be “captured” so he could be “exchanged” for the “blind sheik” in our prison. But the effort to “smoke” Stevens out of hiding killed him instead. Is there any evidence to support that theory?
(2) WHO made the decision to strip armed protection from the Ambassador? If not Hillary, then WHO did make that deadly decision?
(3) WHO ordered ALL the potential rescuers of our trapped Americans to “Stand down”? And WHO ordered that person to present that order — if not Obama?
(4) And was there anything to the story that the captain of one of our aircraft carriers was “officially” relieved of his command — at sea — because the captain said he would not accept the “stand-down” order relayed to him when Americans were dying?
(5) Who at the IRS knew (coordinated?) all of the improper audits that were directed at conservatives? WHOSE orders was that coordinator following?
(6) Who at the DOJ initiated the request for the AP phone records? WHAT reasons were prevented for violating our Constitution?
(7) What “favors” has Secretary Sebellius offered to companies regulated by HHS , if those firms will just “donate” (i.e.: be be shaken down) by HHS?
News for FOX..i dont listen to any of your talking heads...Karl Rove, Frank Luntz polls, Krauthammer, Kristol etc...
So i dont care what he thinks
