'Couldn't Govern, But Sure Knew How to Campaign': Krauthammer Slams Obama
Charles Krauthammer tonight weighed in on the ongoing negotiations with Iran over the country's nuclear program and President Obama's calls for Republicans to "work with me."
Krauthammer noted that House Speaker John Boehner invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint meeting of Congress next month about the threat of a nuclear Iran, a move that White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest described as "a breach of typical protocol."
"The idea that somehow this is an intrusion, Congress is an independent body," Krauthammer said. "That's what's written in the Constitution. If it wants to invite a head of state, it can do that."
"[Obama] promised sanctions. He obviously does not want to do it. And sanctions is the third way between a capitulation and war. And that's why Congress wants to impose it, triggering it only if Iran doesn't agree to give up its nukes."
Krauthammer also reacted to Obama giving a speech in Boise, Idaho, following the State of the Union address in which he called for Republicans to "work with me."
Krauthammer said it looks like the president still knows how to stir up a college audience.
"This sort of reinforces the idea that I'm sure will be the epitaph of the Obama presidency: 'He couldn't govern, but he sure knew how to campaign.'"
