Charles Krauthammer ’s Obama Comment Shocks Fox Panel Into Silence


Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer brought momentarily silence, and not the kind that is out of respect, to a Fox News panel on "Special Report" after National Review columnist Jonah Goldberg said that Obama will not get a vote on the majority of new gun control legislation that he wants. "All he wants now is the money," Krauthammer responded.

Several seconds of silence followed Krauthammer's, "all he wants now is the money" comment. It was as if everyone at the table had been caught off guard, including host Chris Wallace.

Wallace finally recovered stating, "You don't really mean that."

"He's lost on gun control," Krauthammer responded.

When opposed by stating that he would get expanded background checks, Krauthammer indicated that it is "not going to make any difference." He also went on to state that background checks were the "last item standing, the smallest item standing." He said it's the only one that Obama could possibly get, which I point out would be a huge blow to gun owners and the Second Amendment. Remember, Gun Owners of America and the National Rifle Association openly oppose expansion of background checks. However, as I wrote about here, West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin and the NRA have been engaged in private talks on a proposal to broaden background checks on purchasers of firearms.

Expansion of background checks would be a significant victory for Obama. Don't let anyone mislead you. Since they have put out all the bans and hoopla over them, they will be more than happy to take a step forward to infringe upon the Second Amendment with the expansion of background checks.

"Knowing all that," Krauthammer continues, "he is out there now exploring it as an issue. He is not going to get the solution he wanted, so he'll make an issue. And that's the way he operates. He does it on immigration. He does it on a lot of stuff. If you can't win on a solution or get your way, you turn it into cash."

"He is excellent at turning stuff into cash," he concluded.

    Why do our representatives want us to make a deal that says they will maybe give us border security if we make the illegals legal? We are suppose to have a secured border as a matter of law, not as a result of us giving citizenship to illegals It sounds like let's make a deal.

    SECURE THE BORDER NOW. NOW. NOW.

    WHEN A GOVERNMENT WHO IS 17 TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT BECAUSE THEY HAVE MANAGED SO BADLY SAYS THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO GIVE WHAT IS ALREADY OURS I WORRY.

    Why do the politicians say the immigration bill will cause us to have more tax money(CBO report). These people and the rest of us do not pay federal income tax unless we make over 20 + thousand dollars. The ones who are here are not paying income tax and if they pay any tax, it is social security and Medicare, and they are paying it in on an assumed name and number and can't collect it. The Obama care is theft in action, talk to anyone who lives where the government handles their medical care and you will find that they handle their money but the medical care has to be gotten some other way.
    When you are going to fine someone $2000.00 for not having health insurance and they don't have a job, so they say the government will give them a tax credit to make up for it. did they miss the part where they are out of work? How do you get a tax credit when you don't pay taxes ?
    We in the united states have gas and oil in our own space but we choose to buy it from other countries, WHY? Opponents of the gas and oil in our space is restricted because they say it will go to Russia or China. What a stupid statement. If our gas and oil increases the amount available then the price will be along the lines of supply and demand.
    Obama wants everyone in the united states to work for the government. these will be workers they can control and manipulate.
    I don't know who or where or how but we have to turn this train around, it is headed off the cliff and it is running fast.

    The intent of Obama is to drag the united states down even farther than it has brought itself. With the politicians we have on both sides of the fence, we will not have to surrender, it will just happen.

    All of our representatives should not only be ashamed, but should be in prison for committing fraud against the very people they are suppose to represent.

    I keep hearing in the IRS scandal that you can't be granted exemption from taxes if your charity is politically involved. Was the exemption to Obama's 1/2 brother political? What organization is that and why are the senate and or congress exempt from insider trading rules, and why are they trying to get themselves exempt from Obama care?

    Why does the American people think so much of Bill Clinton, Mark Rich was pardoned by Clinton, a result of which contributions to the Clinton library were made. Do you think that was all? Mark Rich was guilty of trading with the enemy. that is why he no longer lived here.
    Does anyone other than me see why we are failing? Why did it take years and much money for the president to come up with a fake birth certificate. Why is the president of the united states allowed to seal his records? Why does he insist on us buying oil from countries who want us dead? Why is he against the pipe line from Canada? Why is it bad on the environment if oil is drilled here and it is not if it is drilled some where else and then shipped here? Why would we shut down coal use when it is one of our abundant energy sources?

    Why would people think that green energy is the way to go when we have the evidence that it is not? 1.5 billion invested in one place that yielded 6 permanent jobs. There are other examples of green energy failure. Why would it be necessary to take three steps backward to get 1/100th of a step forward?
    we cannot trust people to run our affairs when they have shown that they can't count? Why is it legal for lobbyist to exist? That program is obvious, they make legislation to fit what the lobbyist ask for, are they too ignorant to find what needs to be done? Fire the politicians and hire the lobbyist. We can't afford both.

    Every state now requires some sort of firearm background check before a gun can be sold.The Obama gun infringement ploy was all about sticking it to the White working-class voters who really do cling to their guns and religion. His uncle Jeremiah Wright pounded Black Liberation theology into his head for twenty years.

    Obama and his crew are excellent politicians and are constantly seeking cash, period. He does stupid things than blames the Republicans as if they did it, Most of the people are sleeping and the liberals are stupid for loving it.
    The horse is out of the barn and Obama is riding it.
