Krauthammer on Gates revelations
about Obama: ´How can a
commander-in-chief do that?´

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/7/2014 8:36:38 PM

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said Tuesday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that former Obama Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ revelation in his new memoir that his commander-in-chief didn’t believe in the war in Afghanistan and subsequent surge in troops was shocking. “Obama doesn’t believe in the surge or in the war, or in his own actions,” Krauthammer said, “He doesn’t believe in [General] Petraeus, he hates [Afghan President] Karzai, he thinks the war isn’t his. How can a commander-in-chief do that?” Krauthammer went on to say he assumed President Obama didn’t believe in the war,

Why? Perhaps because he´s an anti-American, spineless, narcissistic manchild.

Regardless . Gates is still an institutional vandal who stood by and allowed Obama to open the military to openly Gay people who will ruin the service. In 500 years when someone writes The Rise and Fall of the American Republic his name will be oft mention in the closing chapters .

It should be clear to all but the most childish among us, that Øbama is on a very deliberate mission to destroy this once great nation- our economy, our society, our heritage and our military. He´s doing very well at it and is not finished in his task by a long shot. To think otherwise is to assign to Øbama a level of incompetence that would make a person like that incapable of daily ablutions or even feeding himself. Since Øbama is not a subsiting idiot, we must assume, confidently, the former is the circumstance.

Most of those on camera won´t go out on a limb and state what most be us have concluded after observing Obama and other Democrats for the last five years.
But you´d think that after all the lies and bad policies and corruption and cronyism and self-indulgence and pay-offs, that somebody would finally call these evil destructive people what they are. Maybe they fear calling a spade a spade would kick them off television.

Gates should not get a pass. He aided and abetted everything he says was bad in the 0 administration. He provided his stature and imprimatur to everything he now decries. He did not speak out when it could have mattered before the 2nd election. He did not noisily resign to alert the nation of all he now says he knew. He is complicit and not deserving of the profits from this book nor the kudos he is getting for exposing this fraudster.

Democrats have wanted nothing from the War On Terror but another Vietnam, an American loss they can crow about while waving their red flags of moral superiority. How awful for our brave troops to have to serve under a subversive, anti-American commander in chief, and Miss Hillary will be no better. For the Left, "winning" = America losing. It will always, always be thus.

Is CK running for office or is it because he has a book out that we see his opinions almost every day? Frankly, I don´t give a rat´s patootie about what Dr. K thinks about anything. If he wasn´t smart enough to figure Obama out in 2008, I don´t need to listen to him now.

I agree with the majority of posters this morning. What took Dr. K so long to recognize Obama´s agenda? Evidently, the elites inside the beltway have a very difficult time seeing past the elegance, crease in the pants, and the faux intellectual ability of the light bringer to recognize a soulless con man who is driven by anti-American philosophy spoon fed to him by communists, domestic terrorists, and bigoted men of the cloth. It just goes to show that big fancy degrees don´t necessarily equal simple discernment. The lack of curiosity about Obama when there were red flags flying all over the place only confirms what the folks in flyover country already knew. Many commentators were blinded by the "he´s one of us" facade that prevented them from peering behind the mask to see the real man. Chiding others who weren´t taken in by Obama´s con, was the betrayal. Ultimately, they were right, and you, Dr. Krauthammer were conned. Now who should leave the room?

#13 thank you.
I think old clueless liberal Charles Krauthammer is just getting all ´chattery´ with his wordy words because he has a book to sell. Fox News is his outlet.
Krauthammer sang praises for the first black ´experiment´ president in 2008 so why should I care what he rails about now.
Krauthammer is just another pompous pundit. When Steve Hayes talks I listen.

The good news, Gates broke through Washington´s sickness of silence, and he took long enough to cleverly combine his "revelations" with a big bucks book deal. This cowardly but clever fellow is another whistleblower, late or not. 2014 will bring more truth reveallers than all the five preceding ObamaHitlerStalin years.
Now, look at the thick wisdom of the kindly, scholarly Charles K. IMAGINE the insider knowledge that HE, Krauthammer, is withholding right at this moment ! ! !
Late or not, cautious or not, America needs a river of insiders, like Gates and Krauthammer, TO OPEN UP, FULL BLAST, and let loose with the truth.

Bless Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, BUT they are only a timid beginning of what is needed to stop this tyrannical
administration and crazed, drunken Congress with their Machiavellian lobbyists, lawyers and Diane Sawyers !

How can a commander-in-chief do that? Easily. It´s who he is.

Here´s how:

Obama is NOT American, in spirit or reality.

In 2008, he would not wear a flag pin. He didn´t place his hand over his heart when the national anthem was played.

How stupid are you that it takes five years to get a clue?

When Obama came into office he had forces in both Afghanistan and Iraq, effectively bookending Iran. He had Iraq as a long term air base which relieved a huge amount of the stress of using Saudi as our launching point. It has taken him 5 years, but he has almost completely eliminated our ability to project force in the region. Give him another year and he will be able to say that we simply don´t have the ability to stop Iran from getting nukes.

To continue #27´s list, never forget and remind everyone who will listen: Obama said in his book Audacity of Hope "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

How can anyone come to any other conclusion but that Obama is out to destroy America as we know it and institute a form of Sharia law on our shores?

#23, you bring up an important point: again, where was Gates when everyone knew that the military ballots were not being processed in a timely manner (or at all)?

It is offensive to me that Gates still asserts that BO is not anti-military when every policy has been so harmful and even deadly to our military.

What is disturbing about Krauthammer and others like him is their lack of moral clarity and the failure to stand on moral truth, on Truth.

Everything is political calculation. And big bucks. Brings to mind the last days of the Roman Republic...

Thanks to #28 for pointing out the geopolitical advantage of some presence in Iraq.

#29, it´s hard for me to believe that Hussein is seriously interested in Sharia because I doubt he is seriously interested in hardcore Islam, even if Islam is where his heart is. It is my understanding that a lot of Indonesian Islam is somewhat loose & unconventional (not all!), and from what I´ve read about Lolo I wouldn´t think he would be of the hardcore persuasion. I also think one can safely assume Mooch wouldn´t be into Sharia. I think they lean more Marxist than Muslim.

As for Gates - it´s hard to judge without having read the book - but it was shocking to read that he misrepresented himself in meetings and didn´t express his real opinions. It´s also frustrating how "even-handed" he appears. Reminds me of Jamie Dupree - the original Mr. "Fingers Pointing at Each Other."

At least Dr Krauthammer didn´t tell Howard Kurtz in a Washington Post interview in Feb 2008 ,
that he wanted Obama or Hillary to win the presidency
if McCain was the Republican nominee.
As Rush Limbaugh did .
How could Limbaugh say that ???
Google " Limbaugh on McCain : I´d Rather Be Right All The Time " Feb 5, 2008 , Washington Post.
Krauthammer made an excellent point:
"However, Krauthammer said Gates’
confirmation of this is
“an indictment of the president that rises above everything else he’s done in his presidency.”
Absolutely.
Obama did to the military what he´s doing to health care.
I´ve always felt that Obama´s outright Dereliction of Duty in regards to the surge , the war
in Iraq , Afghanistan and the WOT was always grounds for impeachment.

How in the world could Dr. K even ask "How can a commander-in-chief do that?” as it relates to 0bama?? That´s just 0bama being 0bama! I will truly never understand how someone as cogent and brilliant as him couldn´t see what 0bama was the first time around. I don´t know if he was so intent on being "fair and balanced" that he gave 0bama the benefit of the doubt on almost everything prior to even the first election. Those of us here knew exactly what we were going to get and the elites in Washington like Krauthammer would consider us as uneducated pathetic rubes who have no idea what is going on. For Krauthammer to even utter the words that "0bama would lead from the center" was stunning, and is still shocking. Absolutely none of these revelations are surprising.

I am amazed by pundits that they don´t see obozo for what he is: not principled ideologue, but politician through and through. That strategy is many years old. At least 100 years. Lenin said (it is not a direct quote) that to reject compromises “on principle”, to reject the permissibility of compromises in general, no matter of what kind, is childishness, difficult even to consider seriously.

There were ONLY TWO on-air commentators who dared to speak the truth about Obama BEFORE it became too late.... Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity.

Glenn was unceremoniously dumped by FNC for being too inflammatory (and those who complained about him included Dr. K), and Sean has been shunted off to a later hour.

Fortunately, after Beck left FNC, Sean became even more vocal, and extremely repetitive. But he tried then, and he´s still trying now.

I have no real respect for the TeeVee Super-Smarts and Electeds who refused to accept or even investigate what we all tried to tell the country, MORE THAN five years ago. Obama is NOT ´´just another Democrat´´. He wasn´t then, and he certainly isn´t now.

But who´s gonna do anything about it?

Gates should have exhibited some honor sooner, IMHO. But, even though late to the party, and now apparently for monetary reward, he finds his conscience.

How many died because he waited this long? Still, I hope he´s the first of many more to come. Our nation needs a thorough cleansing.

Once again, they play you and me like a violin. Krauthammer and Gates are in it for Krauthammer and Gates. They are both exactly the same. Both could have done something about revealing who and what Obama was, is and always will be. Instead, both waited until it was too late for America but great in the short term for their own wallets. THAT is the story and continues to be ad infinitum with these people. The United States of America is OVER. You are simply the governed and the thing you think is "consent" no longer exists.

I too was disappointed when the good Dr appeared to be taken in by the Barky BS. But he is NOT the reason we are stuck with him now. And none of the commentary I´ve seen from him since mid-2009 has been at odds with what most here feel about this Quack-in-Chief.

It´s time to get over CK´s error in judgement. So he was wrong. Does that mean that EVERYTHING else he has said is wrong as well ? Of course not. Be glad he is on our side and let it go.

So, yes, his screw up was on purpose with malice and forethought. Doesn´t mean he´s not a nice guy, just that he´s a hypocrite now and will always be one. His decision, not mine.

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks.

Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident.

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines.

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali. This campaign was orchestrated by the Muslim Student Association and by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization which is the American face of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Someone sent author Naomi Wolf a copy of my latest article about this scandal: “Brandeis Feminists Fail the Historical Moment.” It was my response to Brandeis’s shameful dis-invitation of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

F. Reid Buckley, a novelist, columnist, founder of a school of public speaking and, in family lore, the most literary of Aloise and William F. Buckley Sr.’s 10 children, including former Senator James L. Buckley and the conservative commentator William F. Buckley Jr., died on Monday in hospice care in Columbia, S.C. He was 83. The cause was cancer, his son William Huntting Buckley said. Mr. Buckley had lived in Camden, S.C., since the early 1970s. He was often mistaken for his brother William, the founder of the conservative magazine National Review. The brothers not only looked alike. They also shared political

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

A New York woman suffering from a neurological disease that has required four brain surgeries has been dropped by all of her doctors and denied medications due to her Obamacare plan. "I´ve been vomiting. I lost 22 pounds. The pain is unbearable," said Margaret Figueroa, 49, on Wednesday. "My medication helps me function during the day." Figueroa suffers from a disease known as Arnold Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia. Even though the Obamacare plan she purchased assured her that she was covered, her insurance card was denied when she went to fill her prescriptions. Then she learned that none of her

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'

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

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
