Newsbusters has video of Charles Krauthammer calling President Obama’s budget speech “a disgrace” among other things. Newsbusters’ Noel Sheppard agrees with Krauthammer, as do I. Unfortunately, President Obama is kicking off his reelection campaign at a time when he should be focusing on the coming fiscal train wreck. Video of Krauthammer’s critique is after the jump.
Obama promised during his campaign to change the political tone and rhetoric in Washington as he pledged to work with folks on the opposite side of the aisle.
Last week, Congressman Ryan (R-Wisc.) presented a comprehensive plan to bring down this nation’s budget deficit while reforming Medicare and Medicaid in a fashion that would make them viable for decades to come.
Rather than embrace Ryan’s plan as a good effort that he was going to counter with his own vision for the future, Mr. Hope and Change attacked the Wisconsin Congressman while practically accusing the man of being the devil incarnate looking to harm old people for the benefit of the rich.
When is this nonsense going to stop?
We are a nation in a deep financial crisis that could bury us in the coming years if we don’t do something about it, and the President along with virtually his entire Party want to attack the other side rather than sit down like adults and solve a problem most of us admit exists.
Obama and the Democrats have chosen to ignore this issue for 27 months focusing instead on healthcare reform and stimulus packages which have worsened the situation rather than improved it.
Charles Krauthammer is the most effective critic of the Obama administration. Republican Presidential candidates would be wise to listen to his every word.
