Doctor Charles Krauthammer, this morning: Rahm Emanuel once sent a dead fish to a live pollster. Now he’s put a horse’s head in Roger Ailes’s bed. Not very subtle. And not very smart.

Doctor Krauthammer today makes a great point about Obama’s response to the Iran situation: …. this incipient revolution is no longer about the election. Obama totally misses the point.

Doctor Krauthammer on Obama: He is throwing trillions around on social spending, a lot of which he has admitted will be wasted, because it’s just in the essence of it. But look at where he actually cuts. He takes off a billion dollars of missile defense at a time when Iran and North Korea are […]
