Krauthammer’s Take: ‘Where Is the President?’

by NRO Staff

“Where is the president?” Charles Krauthammer asked on Special Report. Citing the troop increase in Afghanistan and the eventual withdrawal, Krauthammer observed, “He simply initiates, like in Libya, then he doesn’t lead.”

“On this issue, if it is as important as he says it is, he should be the one out there making at least one speech. Instead he’s up in Massachusetts campaigning for a Democrat.”

As for the one speech President Obama has recently given, “Here’s a guy who’s saying [the terror threat] is over#…#and yet at the same time, he’s running this huge, invasive program whose only idea, whose only basis is the vast terror threat out there. He not only supports his program, he contracts it in public.”
