I wonder if this means, conversely, that  keeping the senseless war going would be an heroic American act.

“It’s kind of an act of personal narcissism,” Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor, said. “Is that how we’re now setting the strategy of the United States in a war zone, where so many have died and so much treasure and blood has been spent, so a president can leave office looking good?”

Krauthammer added that he believed Obama’s remarks were designed to play to the president’s political supporters and help Democrats in the 2016 election. But while the move might help Democrats at the polls, Krauthammer said it may not be the best thing for the country.

And “the best thing for the country” is keeping this war going?

No responses to Krauthammer: Obama Ending War Is ‘Act Of Personal Narcissism’

    I always thought Krauthammer looked like a Dick Tracy villain.

    I used to think that the only jobs where you can consistently be wrong and remain employed are weather forecasters and lawyers. Looks like we need to add right wing pundit to the list. We all know about Karl Rove’s meltdown on election night in 2012 when he declared that it was too early to call Ohio for the President. He still has a steady gig on Fox.

    Now, we have Mr. Krauthammer and his “impeccable” credibility on foreign policy where his legacy consists of non-stop cheerleading for a war in Iraq to find weapons that did not exist.

      Bill Kristol’s a pretty good example, too.

    Krauthammer is so irrelevent that nobody listens to what he has to say. Not even right wingers. It’s like having Justin Beiber opine on the HHR mandate. Nobody cares what he thinks.
    I think Fox keeps him on because he always says what they want to hear.

    He’s good for a laugh, now and then.

    But of course not ending the war would be yet another ‘broken promise’. Jerkoff

    When Coulter takes off her makeup, you get Krauthammer.

      Oh, so that who is is under that mask? I always wondered.

    If the president said that grass is green and on a sunny day the sky is blue, Krauthammer would disagree with the president. Charlie K. has issues and needs to get some professional help.
