Krauthammer’s Take

From Monday night’s Fox News All-Stars

On President Obama explaining the unpopularity of Obamacare thus: “We had to move so fast, we were in such emergency mode, that it was very difficult for us to spend a lot of time doing victory laps and advertising exactly what we were doing, because we had to move on to the next thing”:

He wasn’t exactly moving on quickly on health care. It took him 18 months. And his self-regard is quite infinite here. He’s pretending that the reason people are upset with his health-care reform is because he didn’t advertise it enough. He gave over 30 speeches on this and people responded less and less with each speech. It was what he was offering. It was not the way he was offering it.
