Krauthammer: Obama Has Reached the 'Bottom of the Barrel'
Charles Krauthammer said on "The O'Reilly Factor" that he believes President Obama has reached "the bottom of the barrel" in his attempts to defend his strategy to combat ISIS.
Bill O'Reilly noted that a few days ago in Malaysia, Obama criticized the American media for how it reports on terror attacks, calling on reporters "to maintain perspective."
The president suggested that the media should be careful to "not empower, in any way, these terrorist organizations or elevate them in ways that make it easier for them to recruit."
Krauthammer responded that Obama is now "so naked on the world stage" as people in both parties - including leading Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Obama's former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta - recognize that "his strategy is a bankrupt one."
"He is seen as so weak, so inviting of this kind of attack on the West, that what's he got left to say? To pretend we're winning the war? Of course we're not," said Krauthammer.
He then questioned how the media could ever "play up too much" the murder of 130 innocent people in Paris in six coordinated assaults, along with other recent terror attacks in Nigeria, Mali and Beirut.
"Brussels is now shut down just by the [ISIS] threat. What can he say? He's been in charge for seven years," Krauthammer concluded.
