Charles Krauthammer: Where
is Ted Cruz now?

Politico, by Lucy McCalmont

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 10/10/2013 2:58:45 PM

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer continued his criticism of Sen. Ted Cruz on Thursday, asking “where is he now?” “How exactly was he going to achieve abolition of Obamacare? Explain that to me. Has he ever explained it? And where is he now?” Krauthammer said on “The Laura Ingraham Show.” Krauthammer, who has previously hit Cruz (R-Texas) on the strategy of shutdown to defund Obamacare, included Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) in his questioning and said the two went home to “have lunch.” “I mean his sidekick, Senator [Mike] Lee said, ‘Oh, we’re past Obamacare. We moved on.’ These are the generals

Comments:
Whoa! CK has a private off the record meeting with Zero and then comes out blasting Cruz and Lee 2 days later...

The BETTER question is where is Krauthammer now?
You are swinging left, appear to be no friend of Conservatives, and marched up to the Spite House to get your marching orders.
Didn´t take you long to draw a bead on Sen.
Cruz again now, did it?
Physician, heal thyself.

Just following his marching orders OP.

I was never crazy about Krauthammer, but now I refuse to listen to him.

Hope the trip to the WH was worth it Charlie. You´ve lost all credibility.

Krauthammer is trying really hard to be a "statesman" or, perhaps, to be remembered as one such.

Maybe at his funeral, but not afterwards.

I will remember him as everlastingly waffling back and forth. His remarks seem to come from expediency (or orders from Ailes?), not from a strong, sure, philosophical position.

#3 is now #4 - the list of "conservative" journos invited to the WH left much to be desired - I can no longer give Dr. K the benefit of indulgence - he has been outspoken against the most courageous of our brightest and best - he never had a good word to say for Sarah Palin either. Forget Kathleen[demolite]Parker, Byron [Rino] York as being credible journos - - I guess the invitation from Herr Diktat was something they all couldn´t resist. Too bad.

And another thing, CK, Cruz defeated a wealthy sitting Lt. Governor to earn the GOP Senate nomination and then earned the trust of 4.5million Texans in winning the seat in the general election in a landslide...he’s keeping his promises to his constituents while gaining the respect of millions of us outside the state...when’s the last time you stood for office, CK?

CK does not get it. He does not live in the same world as we do. He doesn´t understand that we want somebody to stand up and represent us. Cruz´s strategy was not necessarily to win the argument, although that would have been a sweet result, but to highlight the lack of spine the prancing princes and princesses have. He accomplished that with flying colors! Long live Ted Cruz.

Chas Krauthammer, Byron York, Kathleen Parker, etc., etc., had all come out against Ted Cruz long before the visit to the White House...which is probably why they were invited to the off-the-record visit with the Won.

Our President doesn´t ever speak to the opposition unless it´s by accident so his people knew it would be safe to invite the above mentioned journalists.

Where is Ted Cruz?

He´s like Steinbeck´s Tom Joad.

He´s on the shoulder of the 90 year old Veteran opening the WW II Memorial.
He´s o he shoulder of the reluctant Congressman that voted to not fund Obamacare and is now demanding the Individual Mandate be postponed.
he´s on the shoulder of the Republican Voter reading that President Obama´s ratings are in free fall.
He´s on the shoulder of the Kids being treated for Cancer at the NIH. His tactic of funding bills like the one to fund the NIH gives them achance for treatment right away when the Democrats get a sense o shame.

Where is Ted Cruz? He´s everywhere in this because e has shown Republicans how to fight on their feet instead of lose on their knees.

Ted Cruz is nowhere and everywhere. Technically, what he did on the Senate floor didn´t delay or stop anything. The HOUSE could´ve decided to send the Senate what Obama wanted and that would´ve left Ted Cruz out in the cold, looking like he was out of touch.

Instead, Cruz not only awakened some of those slumbering or cowering throughout America (and in the House), but he also FIRED THEM UP. He teed Boehner up to lead, and I have so say, so far, I´ve been pretty impressed with Boehner and the fact that YES, this is not about Obamacare (as much) anymore but rather about the absolute arrogance and audacity of Barack Obama. In all honesty, it´s the fight Obama wanted, but now that he´s getting it and the America people are pushing back, the veneer is beginning to crack and people do not like WHO they are seeing under that perfectly polished creation of the media.

In any other time CK would be right, but these are no ordinary times.

Well, Dr. Krauthammer, I think he´s probably laughing at the way the "ban" on OUR parks is working (don´t miss the Buzzfeed article just above) and possibly enjoying the complete implosion of the Obamacare website.

Oh, don´t forget the illegal emails between the WH and the IRS. (Several federal employees have some sensitive body parts in a vice right now, Owwweeee!) And that´s just today.

Have I forgotten anything?

Come on, Charles, you have to admit that right now, this administration is a lot funnier than Saturday Night Live has been since about 1983.

Well said, #s 18 and 24.

TC and ML are intelligent, knowledgeable, articulate, passionately patriotic, and still humble enough to not think more highly of themselves than they do of WTP.
They have done an invaluable service for their country by providing strong leadership that inspires the American people to get involved and work with them rather than acting as though a vote to give them power to "take care of US" is all that is required of a citizen of our country.

There are a number of people in D.C. who could learn a thing or two from them. Unfortunately, the ones who need the lessons most are the ones who think they already know it all.

Never forget, Krauthammer was once an employee of Carter and Mondale. He wrote speeches for them.

That should tell you everything you need to know about the vaunted Dr. K.

That and the fact that he sat night after night on the Hume report and told us that we didn´t have anything to fear from an 0bama presidency, completely ignoring what little information was public regarding the Mulatto --Wright, Ayers, Dorne, Indonesia, the sweet sound of the Muslim call to prayer, etc.

Yep. Completely ignored all of that said said 0b@$tard was harmless.

Not only was Ted Cruz successful in waking up a lot of people, he was successful in revealing a LOT of Rino´s. Some of the revelations surprised me. Some, not so much.

CK has been a waffler since Obama was nominated. He tries to ride the fence much of the time in an effort to not offend, and keep as wide an audience as possibke. However, at a certain point in life, one must make some firm decisions about where one really stands, and it appears that CK has finally done so.

Not particularly shocking or surprising, just another gift from Ted Cruz. As someone above stated, the real question is not where is Ted Cruz, but where is CK?

Now, we all know.

For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it.

The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

De Klerk shared the Nobel peace prize with Mandela in 1993 for brokering the end of apartheid and, when the ANC leader was elected president in the first multiracial election, entered into a government of national unity as his deputy. De Klerk, 77, said in remarks to the BBC: "It´s a very sad moment for the whole of South Africa and I´m sure millions of people around the world. "I fully associate myself

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Nelson Mandela, revered statesman

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

The victim in an early morning shooting in Walker County has been identified as Ronald Westbrook, a 72-year-old Alzheimer´s patient. Westbrook was shot outside the home of Joe Hendricks on Cottage Crest Court about 4 am. Westbrook lived about two-and-a-half miles from where he was shot and had apparently wandered away from home. Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. The sheriff said Hendricks heard a suspicious sound outside the house and called 911.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
