Dr. Krauthammer is frequently on the Fox
News Channel. He is an M.D., a lawyer and is paralyzed from
the neck down. A friend went to hear Charles Krauthammer. He
listened with 25 others in a closed room. What he says here
is NOT 2nd-hand but 1st. The ramifications are staggering
for us, our children and their children.
Last Monday was a profound evening. Dr.
Charles Krauthammer spoke to the Center for the American
Experiment. He is a brilliant intellectual, seasoned &
articulate. He is forthright and careful in his analysis and
never resorts to emotions or personal insults. He is NOT a
fear monger, nor an extremist, in his comments and views. He
is a fiscal conservative and has received a PulitzerPrize
for writing. He is a frequent contributor to Fox News and
writes weekly for the Washington Post.
The entire room was held spellbound during
his talk. I have summarized his comments, as we are living
in uncharted waters economically and internationally.
Even 2 Dems at my table agreed with
everything he said! If you feel like forwarding this to
those who are open minded and have not drunk the Kool-Aid,
Summary of his comments:
1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual,
charming individual. He is not to be underestimated. He is a
cool customer who doesn't show his emotions. It's very hard
to know what's behind the mask. The taking down of the
Clinton dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons
still do not understand what hit them. Obama was in the
perfect place at the perfect time.
2. Obama has political skills comparable to
Reagan and Clinton. He has a way of making you think he's on
your side, agreeing with your position, while doing the
opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch
what he DOES!!!
3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He
did not come to Washington to make something out of himself
but rather to change everything, including dismantling
capitalism. He can't be straight forward on his ambitions,
as the public would not go along. He has a
heavy hand and wants to level the playing
field with income redistribution and punishment to the
achievers of society. He would like to model the USA to
Great Britain or Canada .
4. His three main goals are to control
ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION and NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the
Federal government. He doesn't care about the auto or
financial services industries but got them as an early
bonus. The cap and trade will add costs to everything and
stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his
goal. Most scary is his healthcare program because if you
make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type
single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The
only way to control costs is with massive RATIONING of
services, like in Canada .. God forbid!
5. He has surrounded himself with mostly
far-left academic types. No one around him has ever even run
a candy store. But they are going to try and run the auto,
financial, banking and other industries. This obviously
can't work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather
he's a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of
revolution. He ran as a moderate but will govern from the
hard left. Again, watch what he DOES, not what he says.
6. Obama doesn't really see himself as
President of the United States but more as a ruler over the
world. He sees himself above it all, trying to orchestrate &
coordinate various countries and their agendas. He sees
moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in
Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees
America as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant,
rather than a great noble nation that has at times made
errors. This is the first President, ever , who has
chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!
7. He is now handing out goodies. He would
like to blame all problems on Bush, from the past, and
hopefully his successor in the future. He has a huge ego and
Dr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist. (the Dr. IS a
8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a
while but will emerge strong. Republicans are pining for
another Reagan but there will never be another like him.
Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby
Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February) are the
future of the party. Newt Gingrich is brilliant but has
baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent but needs to
really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to
be a serious candidate in the future. We need to return to
the party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal
responsibility, strong national defense and State's Rights.
9. The current level of spending is
irresponsible and outrageous. We are spending trillions that
we don't have. This could lead to hyperinflation, depression
or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into
prosperity. The Liberal Media loves the democratic agenda. But eventually the bill
will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts
didn't work, nor the stimulus package. These were
trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama's allies, unions and the
Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for #4
10. I hope this gets you really thinking about what's happening in
Washington and Congress. There is a left-wing revolution
going on, according to Krauthammer, and he encourages us to
keep the faith and join the loyal resistance. The work will
be hard but we're right on most issues and can reclaim our
country before it's far too late.
Do yourself a long term favor. Send this to
all who will listen to an intelligent assessment of the big
picture. All our futures and children's futures depend on
our good understanding of what is really going on in DC and
our action pursuant to that understanding!!!
