Incredible! Paragraph after paragraph of nothing!

It's not often I read an article and get absolutely nothing out of it... Except, when chuck krauthammer is the author! Chuck needs to go back to school. Someone needs him to get a fresh idea... Something he hasn't had for 5+ years

Baloney.Everybody, including the Prez, immediately said it was a terror attack. People were protesting that video that very day all over the Middle East--who knows to this day what motivated the attack? Has Krauthammer debriefed the terrorists? Mr. Hicks was not "demoted." This is garden-variety spin from "me-too-I-hate-Obama" Krauthammer.

Unfortunately the truth appears to mean nothing to our leaders in Washington. But worse than that is the appearance that the truth means nothing to over half the population of this country, It is truly a sad day when there is no honor among thieves. May we each do our part in living here in ths great country.

Liberals will contort themselves into crippling knots to support this administration, even in the face of abuse, lies, intimidation, and possible illegal behavior.

"Liberals will contort themselves into crippling knots to support this administration, even in the face of abuse, lies, intimidation, and possible illegal behavior."

Ever heard of the boy who cried wolf!?

We have been hearing this type of language since November of 2008 when Obama was first elected. This too shall pass. And conservatives will have to invent another "new" conspiracy to end obama's presidency. It happens about every 3 months. Foxnews and rush invent something new.

Instead of worrying about Obama, why doesn't the right look at itself? The only way to end the democrats' run of power will be to actually win more votes than they. I'm not seeing this as the GOP maintains their small tent and offensive and unattractive to most Americans platform.

If, as he claims "Americans deserve the facts, not conditional truth" then Americans had better stop listening to Chuck himself. All spin, no substance.

I agreed with the start... and then it descended into talking points. By the way, that 12 rounds of email edits thing was actually a lie.

Look at those who defend the President and his administration for lying to America. Why would any American ever defend anybody who lied about his official acts as Commander In Chief; who instructed others to lie about the cause of the Benghazi attacks; who pretended to be outraged that his administration's involvement in harassing Americas via the I.R.S.; who pretended that the 1st Amendment rights of the press to speak freely without their 4th Amendment rights being violated?

Nixon lied and left office rather than facing impeachment. Clinton lied and was impeached. Obama lied. Four people died, but he lied to save his Presidency. Terrorists attacked, but he lied to save his Presidency. He called the Fort Hood massacre a "work place incident" to save his Presidency. Look at everything that he has "accomplished" and follow the trail of lies that led to that "success". Look at how he "bought off" Senators to get ObamaCare passed.

Charles Krauthammer is telling the truth, but to Obama's followers, the truth must be labeled a lie, otherwise they have to admit that Obama lied.

There is no integrity in lying and no integrity in supporting liars.

Then why do you do so?

as far as Benghazi is concerned the only lying that has been uncovered is the distortion the house repubs have made on "leaked" emails from the White House. The truth about Benghazi is not helping the republicans and instead will probably help Hillary in the long run because of republican overreach.

Conservatives are great at fake outrage. But really (yawn) Benghazi is nothing compared to 9/11, torture and misguided wars that cost trillions.

Take your rage and turn blue.

When a government is out of control, it lies to the people. It covers up. It diverts. It misrepresents. It changes facts. It deletes information.

The Obama administration is in a world of hurt. It has been found out. The people can clearly see that the Emperor is strutting down the street wearing no clothes. He tells us how fine and magnificent his clothes are. He repeats those "fables" at every opportunity; but, those who see him, see him as he really is - strutting down the street in his pretend suit as he pretends to do the business of a President.

So many have listened to him talk about his fine clothes for so long that they think they see what is not there. They ridicule others who point out the fact that he is embarrassing himself and the whole nation by his conduct. Just like in the fairly tale, he will soon see himself as he is seen - and the embarrassment will be his to own and to wear.

Mike, nice rant --
I would just like to know what planet you were living on from 2000-2008?

Conservatives are convinced that we are going to take their guns, that there will be riots in all the streets and that society is just about to crumble.

At what point will you admit you were wrong?

As always, spot on Charles. Keep writing and keep the crazies in check.

I was going to comment but decided it was useless, as there are too many here who don't give any citation for their "facts". They just attack other commenters!

I was going to comment but decided it was useless, as there are too many here who can't accept a growing mountain of indisputable facts. They just attack other commenters!
