The comments from Charles Krauthammer came on Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News show.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning Krauthammer is a columnist for the Washington Post and a contributing editor to the Weekly Standard. He has won many journalism awards, including the 2013 William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence.
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
He was discussing with O’Reilly the Republicans domination of Tuesday’s midterm elections in which the GOP took control of the U.S. Senate and increased its margin in the U.S. House, building a majority described by the head of the National Republican Congressional Committee “as big as any we have seen in our lifetime.”
Obama, at a post-election news conference, denied Tuesdays result was a rejection of his policies.
“The principles that we’re fighting for, the things that motivate me every single day and motivate my staff every day … those things aren’t going to change,” he said.
O’Reilly speculated that Obama is planning to “go out guns blazing.”
“You’re absolutely right,” said Krauthammer, who also served a speechwriter during the 1980s. “He’s a strange combination of obliviousness and recklessness. It’s as if he doesn’t know what happened.”
Now, Krauthammer warned, Obama is “going to sort of get his revenge on everybody by doing a reckless thing which is to legalize millions of illegal aliens, I would say, unconstitutionally, in a way that he knows is going to create a crisis.”
He said such a crisis would put Obama “back in the limelight … in the spotlight.”
“What are we talking about tonight? We’re not talking about one of the most important elections in 20 years. We’re talking about him. That’s what he wants,” Krauthammer said.
When O’Reilly raised impeachment as a response to Obama’s order for amnesty, Krauthammer said that would be the wrong move.
“This is time for Republicans to be very disciplined. They won the election because they were disciplined. They stayed on message. They made it a referendum on Obama,” he said.
“And they won,” he said. “What they have to do now is to go from being the party of no to the party with an agenda.”
