Krauthammer Warns Schumer: 'Revenge Is Not a Good Strategy'
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized incoming Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who proffered that his fellow Democrats may try to stretch out the approval process for President-elect Donald Trump's cabinet nominees.
"Revenge is not a good strategy for the Dems," Krauthammer said.
Schumer told a reporter that Republicans like Trump cannot expect Senate Democrats to sit idle while cabinet choices are quickly approved.
He cited the fact the GOP has held-up the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland, President Obama's choice to succeed Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Krauthammer pointed out that the then-Democratic Senate approved eight of Obama's 2008 cabinet choices in one day
He said that "revenge is not a good strategy for the Dems" and called Schumer's plan "naked partisanship" and "obvious obstructionism."
