Charles Krauthammer was on “The Factor” tonight, where he said problems during this administration are a reflection of the president, citing an “epidemic of incompetence and neglect."

“'Cool’ will get you elected, ‘cool’ will get you fawning profiles from upscale New York magazines, but ‘cool’ will not connect you with the American people when there are allegations that wounded warriors are dying of neglect and corruption, and ‘cool’ will not get you any management skills in running the U.S. government,” he said.

Krauthammer said that Obama never ran “so much as a candy store” and professes “utter ignorance” on everything going on, instead gathering his information through news reports.

In 2008, Obama pledged to fix the VA when he was running for president, so Krauthammer said it’s preposterous to say that he just read about the scandal in the news.
