Charles Krauthammer: The Audacity of Vanity
He's got Barry Obama pegged..."The world burns while Obama Tweets."

Blame your Buddy McBush. Obombma would be tucked in his bed in Illinois if Big John hadn't opened his Big Mouth. So why shouldn't he take advantage of ALL the FREE publicity and speak where ever it will generate the biggest audience??? He's running for office , not you Chuckiehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOtab0BKOGY

Who the f___ does Karuthammer think he is? The keeper of the Brandenburg Gate? What an ass!Never send to know for whom the bell tolls . . .

Mustn't talk about Muhammad Obama.. the Messiah...
You sound just like the terrorists when the cartoons were run.
I guess you would prefer we don't mention his name or question anything about him?
Krauthammer is a columnists who sees through the media's bs and tells it like it is.
Obama is a three-year senator without a single important legislative achievement to his name, a former Illinois state senator who voted "present" nearly 130 times. As president of the Harvard Law Review, as law professor and as legislator, has he ever produced a single notable piece of scholarship? Written a single memorable article? His most memorable work is a biography of his favorite subject: himself."The world burns while Obama Tweets."

Yeah, those two are equivalent. [/sarcasm]

Washington Times - Inside Politics
Here's more for you - Obama is now a "hawk" on Iran... At least he is todays when he is pimping for Jewish votes:
"Over the past weeks much has been made of Barack Obama's hard right turn toward the center of the political spectrum. There's been no greater about-face than his embrace of the Bush Doctrine on the next likely foreign policy crisis — Iran," former Sen. Rick Santorum writes in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"The Bush Doctrine refers to the strategy of preemptive warfare that President Bush set forth in 2002. It's the idea that the United States will not wait for menacing enemies to attack us; we will attack preemptively in certain cases," said Mr. Santorum, a Pennsylvania Republican.
"But how, you might ask, can the candidate of MoveOn.org and the antiwar-forever crowd be aligned with Bush on preemptive strikes against Iran? Here's how: Last month, Obama declared, 'I will do everything in my power to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, everything in my power to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon — everything.'
"When a would-be commander in chief says 'everything' three times in one sentence — and says so publicly — he is not just talking about continued diplomacy and sanctions. He's saying that he has not taken the military option off the table.
"With that statement, Obama, the definitive antiwar candidate, ended any serious debate over preemption in the post-9/11 world.
"And none too soon."
I called Krauthammer an ass due to his stupid remarks about who has or hasn't "earned" some imaginary "right" to speak in fron of the Brandenburg gate.
The Brandenburg Gate should not be a prop for Obama. It's significance is the fall of the Soviet Union, of which he had no part, and his party was against Regan's plan to topple the USSR.

1) Stating that he will not allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon is not an "about-face." Santorum is a crackpot. I wouldn't pay too much attention to him.
2) Your statement about Iraq is ludicrous. Obama has said no such thing.
3) So you agree with Krauthammer that standing in front of the Brandenburg Gate is some kind of earned right? That is also a crackpot idea. I won't even get into the fantasy about Reagan and the U.S.S.R.Never send to know for whom the bell tolls . . .

"When will Obama just acknowledge, "I know people who know people who knew John F. Kennedy, and I am no John F. Kennedy"? Audacity dominates his every step."
Sorry you flunked history, or you would know why Barry wants to be associated with "the Gate"...
His is saying and doing exactly what Bush is doing...

I thought I heard Senator Phil calling Krauthhammer a whiner.
From a Dailykos diary:Krauthammer's piece employs his usual tool bag of tortured analogies analogies and distorted quotes ("translating the royal 'we,; means: 'I am the one we've been waiting for'"), but, underlying it all, his theme is just catty. You can almost hear him stomping down the high school hallway, snipping to a girlfriend, "That Barack Obama, he thinks he's all that."
Listen up people, we got a presidential candidate with an inflated ego. That's an automatic disqualification. Give me a break.

July 19th, 2008, 11:39 AM #10Krauthhammer is a loyal member of the right-wing press corp, whose job is to stomp on the other guy.
I think you should wait to hear from George Soros himself!

My opinion is that Krauthammer is loyal member of the right-wing press corp, based upon the opinion pieces that he writes.
In 2004, Krauthammer wrote:
We had OPEC on the run. In July 1986 oil plunged to $7 a barrel.
It is now $41 a barrel. We had a golden moment, and we let it pass. The way to lock in our gains then would have been to artificially raise the price of gasoline with a tax that would depress consumption, maintain consumer demand for fuel efficiency and, most important, direct much of the pump price into the U.S. economy (via the U.S. Treasury) rather than having it shipped to Saudi Arabia, Russia and other sundry, less than friendly places.
Americans have every right to an eco-sensitivity that prevents drilling offshore, on federal lands or in the Arctic.
Now it's 2008 and Krauthammer's new position is:Gas is $4 a gallon. Oil is $135 a barrel and rising. We import two-thirds of our oil, sending hundreds of billions of dollars to the likes of Russia, Venezuela and Saudi Arabia. And yet we voluntarily prohibit ourselves from even exploring huge domestic reserves of petroleum and natural gas.
It's hard to conclude otherwise that Krauthammer is anything but a partisan.

July 19th, 2008, 02:40 PM #12Essentially, that's Barack Obama's position.
The are content to just starve the country into their vision of a Democrat America - a deindustrialized mecca of the far left, who are content to tell the rest of the country how to live.
I don't want to live like the Amish."The world burns while Obama Tweets."

It was 0100 this morning and I was watching CNN International - nothing else is on at that time. I think they had 3 or 4 straight "reports" on Obama and his trip across Europe. Then they had one little, token McCain report about his visit in Pennsylvania. I guess it's not as enamoring to cover an old, Republican geezer in the United States...it's much more sexy to cover the Messiah in Europe.
I find it funny, though, that it's such a big deal to cover a U.S. presidential candidate making a speech in Europe. Can Europeans suddenly vote in a U.S. election?
Not to mention he's speaking with these heads of state as a presidential candidate. Not under the premise of a senator, but as a presumptive and imminent president. Kind of arrogant, if you ask me.

McCain's Wilkes Barre visit was not even on his schedule. If he wants better media coverage, he needs to run a more organized campaign. Saying something worthwhile might help, too.Never send to know for whom the bell tolls . . .

Vote for the guy you know less about because the stuff you know about the other guy is really scary.
Of course this only applies to on-the-fencers...the die-hard worshipers will just get that much more blood rushing to their penises when they see Obama on TV.

Dude, you're the one with the hard-on for Obama. Don't know why; it seems to be deep-rooted, though.Never send to know for whom the bell tolls . . .
