Fox News Contributor Slams Charles
Krauthammer For Suffering From
‘Obama Derangement Syndrome’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/10/2013 11:18:29 AM

Fox News Channel contributor Julie Roginsky took a shot at President Barack Obama’s critics on Wednesday, particularly syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer. Roginsky said that Krauthammer has begun to appear reflexively opposed to any of the president’s proposals, regardless of their merit. She proceeded to diagnose Krauthammer as having come down with “Obama derangement syndrome,” a play on a charge that Krauthammer himself had leveled at President George W. Bush‘s critics in the last decade. (Snip) Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly invited her panel guests to weigh in on a comment made by Krauthammer on Tuesday night’s The O’Reilly Factor

Comments:
Roginsky is just another mindless Democrat who does nothing but spew talking points. It is easy to predict what she and others will say before they even speak.

FTA:Roginsky said that Krauthammer has begun to appear reflexively opposed to any of the president’s proposals, regardless of their merit.

If Julie was paying the least bit of attention she would know that none of the won´s proposals have merit.

Since November 2nd, I have not turned on Fox News and feel much the better for it. Don´t know who the lady is but she is right, the right does suffer from ODS. Get over it, we lost, the country lost. You can´t beat Santa Claus. why beat a dead horse for the next 4 years? All conservatives should ditch the GOP and go libertarian. Forget the social issues, those were lost 20+ million abortions ago. Try to agree on fiscal conservatism and getting the countries finances on track.
Let the gays marry, who cares?

None of obama´s proposals has any merit so Charlie is right on the money. Whenever I see her face or hear her voice I turn on TV Land. A 35 year old rerun is better than anything that would come out of her mouth.

Saying Krauthammer has Obama Derangement Syndrome because he is reflexively opposed to Obama´s policies is not a fair comparison to the Left´s BDS. Not only did the Left reflexively oppose ANYTHING GWB would say or do or propose, but they had "Buck Fush" bumper stickers, made movies and off-Broadway shows about killing the President, joked openly about assassination, and sttacked him and his family in every media forum.
I can only wish the same for Obama.
As to "reflexively disagreeing," I can honestly that, with the sole exception of award ceremonies he held for military honors and medals, THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE THING that Obama has said, done, or proposed that I agree with.
This fool has been wrong--really, stupidly wrong--on everything 100% of the time.
And that ain´t "reflexive."

Perhaps I´m mistaken but, was Krauthammer fairly conciliatory toward an Obama Presidency in the waning months of 2008? That´s the way I remember it and, I recall being disappointed in him then. Seems to me he gave ZERO a pretty good look before realizing just what he was and pulling back from the dark side. (no pun intended)

Dr K. has the respect of more viewers than
probably any other analyst on TV. Sometimes we only turn on Fox Cable News just to see him and the panel, and then we return to what we were previously doing, and if was watching TV, it definitely was not one of the MSM channels. I can state categorically that I have not watched NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, for 5 minutes in the last
two years, ( other than for sports ).

This is but one of the Left`s tactics being used to take back the House in 2014. Paint all republicans and Tea Party members as `extremists`. That`s the new mantra. you`ll hear it early an often between now and the election. Also, the Left is confident the GOP will not regain the senate in 2014.

Once again, the GOP is left in the dust. They are stumbling around bumping into each other with zero plans to combat the democrats. No response from them to anything the dems do or say.

We are truly lost as a nation. The dems know exactly where to go to steal an election. They have it down pat.

Roginsky is apparently just another dem pawn & media tool but such statist siren songs as hers, broadcast by the lefty/libs of the past few decades, has indeed led many poor little sheeple voters astray. mmm mmm mmm

However, that once effective dem con song has grown stale and is beginning to fall flat as those decieved by the dem politicos and their disasterous policies are finding themselves crashing on the rocks of dispair as we all start 2013.

Charles Krauthammer does not fall for the politicos´ flim/flams & trickery and THAT so annoys the devious dem politicos! LOL!

Talking to TVNewser, Writers Guild of America East communications director Jason Gordon pointed out the hypocrisy of the liberal channel: "The company can´t have it both ways – presenting the strong, progressive voices of the MSNBC hosts while at the same time depriving the [NBCUniversal] Peacock [Productions] employees of their own voices on the job."

WASHINGTON – The Justice Department announced Friday it is revising its rules for obtaining records from the news media in leak investigations, promising that in most instances the government will notify news organizations beforehand of its intention to do so. The revised procedures are designed to give news organizations an opportunity to challenge any subpoenas or search warrants in federal court. News organizations are to be informed of an impending document demand unless the attorney general determines that notice would pose "a clear and substantial threat to the integrity of the investigation, risk grave harm to national security or present

In a watershed moment and a huge victory over environmentalists, General Electric has agreed to stop projects that are designed solely for the purpose of carbon dioxide reductions to please those who lobby for climate change concessions. The National Center for Public Policy Research, a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank which has been fighting GE for years because of GE’s liberal bias under CEO Jeffrey Immelt, scored a huge victory after receiving the commitment from General Electric. Late in 2013, the National Center submitted a shareholder proposal as part of GE´s 2014 proxy statement and annual meeting materials. The proposal: ...request[ed] that the

Cantor announced that lawmakers will vote the week of March 10 on legislation aimed at curbing what the GOP views as an abuse of power by President Obama, who has said repeatedly in recent weeks that he plans to advance his agenda through executive action that does not require Congressional approval.“Declaring that he has a ‘pen

Rep. Marsha Blackburn introduced a bill Friday that would keep the Obama administration from taking another stab at net neutrality rules. The Tennessee Republican announced that she would be introducing the bill on Wednesday, when Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler said that he would be attempting to rewrite the agency´s net neutrality rules. Those rules, which prevented Internet providers from blocking or slowing access to certain websites, were overturned by a federal court earlier this year. Wheeler said Wednesday that the agency would be rewriting the rules according to the court´s decision. The bill that Blackburn introduced Friday —

To conduct what critics are calling an intrusive examination of newsrooms across America, the Federal Communications Commission tapped a Beltway firm whose philosophy aligned neatly with the study´s goals -- which were to promote "diversity" in the newsroom, presumably in terms of who is hired and what is covered. Those goals sound innocuous enough, but the study has run into a buzz saw of criticism on Capitol Hill as lawmakers question whether it could be used to pressure media outlets into changing their coverage. The criticism led the FCC on Friday to significantly back off the review. The company, however, tapped to lead

The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead.

Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

Sarah Palin has made an endorsement in Texas. She’s backing tea party leader Katrina Pierson over Rep. Pete Sessions. In a Facebook post, Palin notes that Pierson’s “life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.” One of those hardships includes a 1997 arrest for shoplifting. As the Dallas Morning News reported on Valentine’s Day, “In 1997, five days before her 21st birthday, Katrina Pierson, then named Katrina Lanette Shaddix, was arrested on a charge of theft of greater than $50 and less than $500.” Pierson,

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.
