I received this email this morning from a friend, and thought to pass it on here. It's pretty profound, in my opinion.

Dr. Charles Krauthammer

Dr. Krauthammer is on Fox News . He is an M.D. and a lawyer and is paralyzed from the neck down. A friend went to hear Charles Krauthammer. He listened with 25 others in a closed room. What he says here, is NOT 2nd-hand but 1st. The ramifications are staggering for us, our children and their children.

Last Monday was a profound evening, Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke to the Center for the American Experiment. He is a brilliant intellectual, seasoned & articulate. He is forthright and careful in his analysis, and never resorts to emotions or personal insults. He is NOT a fear monger nor an extremist in his comments and views . He is a fiscal conservative, and has received a Pulitzer Prize for writing. He is a frequent contributor to Fox News and writes weekly for the Washington Post.
The entire room was held spellbound during his talk. I have summarized his comments, as we are living in uncharted waters economically and internationally. Even 2 Dems at my table agreed with everything he said! If you feel like forwarding this to those who are open minded and have not drunk the Kool-Aid, feel free.

Summary of his comments:

1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn't show his emotions. It's very hard to know what's behind the mask.The taking down of the Clinton dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons still do not understand what hit them. Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time.

2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton . He has a way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your position, while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch what he DOES!

3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including dismantling capitalism. He can't be straightforward on his ambitions, as the public would not go along.
He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada .

4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn't care about the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The cap and trade will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is his healthcare program, because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive RATIONING of services, like in Canada . God forbid!

5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can't work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he's a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he does, not what he says.

6. Obama doesn't really see himself as President of the United States , but more as a ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all, trying to orchestrate & coordinate various countries and their agendas. He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America , as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!

7. He is now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain) will not come due until after he is reelected in 2012. He would like to blame all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the future. He has a huge ego, and Dr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.

8.. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong. Republicans are pining for another Reagan, but there will never be another like him. Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party. Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to be a serious candidate in the future. We need to return to the party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national defense, and state's rights.

9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We are spending trillions that we don't have. This could lead to hyperinflation, depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity. The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda. But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts didn't work, nor will the stimulus package.These were trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama's allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for #4 above.

10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed, fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people are in pain, and the mantra of change caused people to act emotionally. Any Dem would have won this election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.

11. In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be swept back into power. If it's under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If it's between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the economy. I hope this gets you really thinking about what's happening in Washington and Congress. There is a left-wing revolution going on, according to Krauthammer, and he encourages us to keep the faith and join the loyal resistance. The work will be hard, but we're right on most issues and can reclaim our country, before it's far too late.

Dead on in my estimate.

While I belive this man speaks the truth, the attack dogs will be out soon.

100% agreed IMO. By the time any true American minded man becomes POTUS, there may be little left to salvage of the late great US of A.

Makes me want to cry.

More and more evidence against him and also in favour of antichrist theories

"He will be a man of peace" my a**e, i seen through him from the start. It's a shame the "herd's" didn't

I agree 100%, and he has been saying all of this for months. I always look forward to seeing him, he is a level headed thinker, and even says the things you may not wish to hear, but the truth none the less.

I started watching him since before the election, and reading his articles. He has been dead on in all of it.

Thanks for posting, I had heard about this but not read it.

An interesting read, thanks OP.

However I will take with a grain of salt.

I look forward to hearing the other side of the story because we all know there is one.

You are all welcome, and I will be making it a point to pay more attention to this man

The guy is as politically astute as anyone you'll find. As usual, he's pretty much nailed it. Good post.

I have followed Dr. Krauthammer for years!
He is everything stated in the OP and much, much more. Whereas I have never had th epleasure of hearing the man speak in person, I have heard him on the radio and seen him on television for years. He is undoubtedly one of the most insightful, unbiased and intelligent men I have ever had the pleasure of listening to! IMO, he is dead on the mark when it comes to Obama - and it is for that reason that I am more scared about the future of this country than I have ever been in my entire life.

For someone you claim to be a brilliant intellectual, it seems he is still playing the right, left card...

Democrats vs. republicans....liberals vs. conservative....This divide and conquer was so last year.

And he appears on FOX.....well, I think that just answered my question whether he is to be trusted or not. We know where his paycheck is coming from.

Where was all this outrage when Bush was president??

These days, you ALWAYS need to watch what you get in your inbox because information can vary and in many cases, border on extreme.

While I 10000% agree with most of Dr. Krauthammer's views, I don't think you should ever take someone else's word as an authoritative source through a third party. I decided to check on this information independently because the good Doctor is known for not publicly circulating his information from private events.

I also found it strange that he would mention "state's rights" or "far left secular progressive" because these are not common terms that Dr. Krauthammer uses frequently, if at all, which made me suspicious of the email mentioned in the OP. While everything mentioned above pretty much hits the nail on the head, I would rather hear or read the entire presentation from Dr. Krauthammer and not a third party interpretation of his views.

Krauthammer is to sociology and politics what Hawking is to science and physics... everyone should pay attention to what he is saying because we're staring down the abyss and about to become a 'once-great' society instead of being a society of greatness.

Here is what Snopes had to say about that email:

Snopes on Krauthammer Email

No matter how you cut it, actions speak louder than words Mr. President (not just Obama) and Dr. Krauthammer is calling him on his bluff.

posted on Oct, 16 2009 @ 03:34 PM
I had received that email as well some time back and it speaks volumes in ways that many of us could never express. Only Krauthammer could accomplish that.

My vote is for Krauthammer in 2012.

He's 100% correct about the Narcissism thing,
According to a college psych textbook I have:

Someone with Narcissistic Personality disorder (NPD) will display these symptoms:

A grandiose sense of self-importance, with stories of their achievements and talents. They expect to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements

A preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited power

A belief that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people

A lust for excessive admiration

A sense of entitlement, with expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations They are interpersonally exploitative, and take advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends

A total lack of empathy toward others. Inability to even recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others. They don't care how many others suffer. All that matters is the Narcissist's agenda.

Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes, in the extreme.

You can go right down the list checking these traits off...these traits fit many politicians to the proverbial "T". This list could have been written for the Clintons and Obama.

"Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to be a serious candidate in the future.", really? Seriously?
That's all I can even muster at this point.

Wow, I can't believe how great this guy is at telling the future! He should way in on 2012! His ability to read someone's mind is undeniable. Maybe he can tell us what the ph*ck Bush was thinking. I bet he got his start reading palms. Isn't it always the handicap that have extreme superpowers. Maybe he would be gracious enough to spit on me. Darn that Obama for blaming Bush. I mean our entire world's problems all started nine little ol' months ago, didn't they?

As seen, the typical response to intellectual criticism of the Obama administration.

Interesting article. Thanks for sharing.
