    Krauthammer reacts to the president's speech in Osawatomie, Kansas where Teddy Roosevelt spoke a century ago. Charles really nails it here

    Krauthammer: Obama's Speech 'Classic Example of How Little it Takes to Stir the Erogenous Zones of Liberals' | MRCTV

    KRAUTHAMMER: He talked about how we got here. He gave a nice historical rundown except that he left out a critical three years – his presidency. It’s as if it didn’t exist. It’s as if we jumped from ’08 to today. This speech was intended to say that “Everything that’s happened in the last three years has nothing to do with my administration or its policies – economic stagnation, debt, high unemployment. It is a result of the malice of the rich,” and he talked about that at length.

    This is a classic example of how little it takes to stir the erogenous zones of liberals. You give them a speech with social justice, a little bit of class war, you wrap it up in the patina of intellectualism in what is essentially a speech that exonerates anything he’s done and obviously not done and says all of our problems today are the result of the plutocrats. That’s why he’s more a Hugo Chavez than he is a Teddy Roosevelt in this speech

    He's more a George W Bush than he is a Hugo Chavez.

    What a dumb comparison.

    Kinda like Krauthammer&Sickle and his fellow GOP shills leave out the 8 Bush years and jump from 2001 to 2009 over the housing collapse.
    What a hypocrite.

    He doesn't have a choice really, Steph...

    What's he going to do...admit that the whole "Hopey - Changey" thing was just a catchy campaign slogan with nothing behind it?

    Admit that his "signature" piece of legislation in his first term...ObamaCare...is a cobbled together Frankenstein's monster of a bill created by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid that doesn't lower the cost of health care to most Americans, comes at such a high cost it will bankrupt the country, was unconstitutional and wasn't wanted by a majority of the populace anyways?

    Admit that much of the trillion dollars that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid spent on the Obama Stimulus was wasted propping up public sector unions, green companies that have since gone bankrupt and sustaining unemployment benefits for the millions of private sector people his anti business rhetoric and policies first ignored and then KEPT unemployed?

    Admit that his economic "agenda" was Larry Summers and Christina Romer's Keynesian spendfest and when that didn't fix the economy and both of his economic advisors "abandoned ship" he hasn't had a coherent plan since?

    Admit that his only foreign policy coup was killing Osama bin Laden but that wouldn't have happened without the intel gathered by using Bush's enhanced interrogations?

    Admit that he really doesn't have a clue what is happening in the Middle East...from Egypt...to Libya...to Iran...to Syria...to Iraq...to Afghanistan...and that he's got a long seated dislike of Israel that he can't quite get over no matter how important that is with the Jewish vote here in the US?

    Admit that he was the ultimate partisan politician when he held super majorities in the House and Senate, telling the Republicans that "elections have consequences"...but then choosing to ignore that little bromide following the 2010 mid-term elections when he was handed a stinging rebuke at the ballot box on his policies by the American people?

    I agree with all of the above.

    But unless the Republicans can field a "real" conservative; Not the current crop of has been's and RINO's.

    We will have 4 more years of Obama. :doubt:

    another opinion on the Hugo speech.

    SNIP:

    The United States of Unfair-ica
    Derek Hunter

    Dec 11, 2011Sign-Up What is fair?

    Not life. Some people obviously are smarter than others. Some are better looking. Others have more capacity for hard work.

    But this is not unfair. This is the ultimate in fairness. It’s not what skills you were born with; it’s what you do with those skills. Many geniuses simply have no drive to work hard, many “average-looking” people marry “beautiful” people, and so on.

    President Obama went to Osawatomie, Kan., this week to give a campaign speech -- er, policy speech; it couldn’t have been a campaign speech since we, the taxpayers, picked up the tab for it – about what is “fair.” Why Osawatomie? Because it’s where Teddy Roosevelt gave his famous “New Nationalism” speech in 1910, and President Obama wants to be the new TR. At least this week.

    The President railed for nearly an hour about “fairness” and how the United States has become unfair. But, again, what is “fair”?

    The first definition of “fair” from dictionary.com is “free from bias, dishonesty, or injustice.”

    Given this clearly was a campaign speech – you can tell from the relentless political attacks on Republicans – we can safely scratch “bias” from what he meant.

    That this was so clearly a campaign speech also would seem to strike the “Dishonesty” part as well – to make no mention of the honesty of the man who first deployed the metric of metric of “jobs saved or created” and has Eric Holder as Attorney General.

    That leaves us with “free from…injustice.” If there’s one thing “progressives” love to talk about, it is justice. Social justice, economic justice, “no justice, no peace.” Whatever kind of justice you want, they’re selling it. Unless, of course, you simply want the ultimate justice of being left to sink or swim on your own merit. In that case, forget it.

    The President told the people of Osawatomie Teddy “…believed then what we know is true today, that the free market is the greatest force for economic progress in human history. It's led to a prosperity and a standard of living unmatched by the rest of the world.”

    the whole article and comments.

    Why would you WANT four more years of a man who ran out of ideas after two?

    obama has said that America doesn't work and has NEVER worked. Only HE can "make it work" through turning it into a communist country.

    If he gets a second term, he will turn the nation into the Soviet Union.
