‘Literally Pointless’: Krauthammer Slams Obama’s West Point Address
Charles Krauthammer tonight weighed in on President Barack Obama’s West Point address.
“I think his speech was literally pointless,” Krauthammer said, calling it “an answer to the course of criticism” on Obama’s foreign policy.
Krauthammer pointed out that the West Point address was a graduation speech intended to inspire, not answer criticism.
Of Obama’s foreign policy, he said, “I don’t know anybody who believes that when a cancer metastasizes, you’re better off. I don’t think anybody thinks, as he was saying, that America stood tough on Ukraine and […] isolated Russia. Russia just completed the biggest energy deal in the history of the galaxy with China that’s gonna supply it with a customer for 30 years. This is isolation?”
Krauthammer noted that Obama didn’t even mention that Russia swallowed Crimea.
“He looks around the world and he sees what he wants to see, and I think that’s alarming.”
“The speech, I would grade like the policy: C minus,” Krauthammer concluded.
