Krauthammer’s Take: Obama ‘Openly Holding Hostage’ America’s Military Funding

President Obama is “openly holding hostage” America’s military funds, Charles Krauthammer charged tonight on Fox News’s Special Report

“John McCain is apoplectic and he should be,” Krauthammer said. “This is a a president openly holding hostage the funds that a declining military being squeezed on all sides, desperately needs, that he knows and everyone knows, and that he would approve if he had his way on domestic [spending].”

“Holding it hostage, knowing it’s needed, simply because the Republicans won’t give him what he wants in extra spending on domestic,” he said. ”I think that’s scandalous for any commander-in-chief to do.”
