Krauthammer Explains Why Obama's the 'Most Polarizing President of Our Time'
Charles Krauthammer reacted to President Obama saying in a recent interview that the current election is "just the tip of a broader iceberg of dysfunction."
"Well, I'm sure the president means well, but it's rather rich coming from the most polarizing president probably of our time," he said.
He then went on to enumerate the ways that the president fit that description.
Krauthammer said that with the passing of his health care law, Obama did what his predecessors had never done on major initiatives like Social Security or Medicare.
"When they pass something that important...they always had support from the other side. Obama disdained it. He never got it. And the result is we have a polarized country that is largely the result of his condescension to Congress and his arrogance in his own unilateralism."
Krauthammer also reacted to Vice President Joe Biden's recent remarks about the Obama administration's "overwhelming frustration" with the Israeli government.
He explained why the Israelis know "in their gut" that a two-state solution is currently untenable.
