Krauthammer: Obama can lie with such surety, cold-bloodedness that I almost admire him

Last night on Special Report online Krauthammer responded to Obama speaking out of both sides of his mouth on the charitable giving deduction (2009 vs yesterday), saying that he almost admired the level of assurance and cold-bloodedness that Obama has when he completely contradicts something he’s said earlier.

    Uh …. that’s nothing worth admiring, Charles.

      WHOA!……STOP RIGHT THERE!!!!…. BEFORE WE GO ANY FURTHER…Do you love me?, Will You love me forever? will you need me? Will you Need me forever? Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life, will you take me away will you make me your WIFE??? Do you Love me????…………..oops

      Charles Krauthammer is US….Do NOT doubt him….perhaps you missed his facetiousness in his remarks….

      • mike3e4r7

        Exactly. It seemed pretty clear to me he was being facetious.

      • bobemakk

        I saw the interview and Charles K. meant it in a sarcastic way. He is one of the best commentators on Fox, even though I don’t always agree with him.

  • Only one person in America approaches lying with such skill and dexterity: Slick Willie.

    • Conniption Fitz

      Romney did a splendid job of lying in the FL debate (at least 8 documented) and throughout the primaries. One or two of his lies were documented on stage on live TV.

        Can you list them for us stupid readers and while you are at it please blame Bush also.

    • John3_3

      Yes, slick willie is ten times the liar that obama is and obama is good at it…that’s just goes to show how good clinton is at it.

  • RocklinConservative

    OMG … first of all, I get sooo upset when they talk about people not wanting to give to charity if they don’t have they don’t get to take a deduction on their taxes. What was “philanthropy” all about say as little as 100 years ago? What did people do before the government became involved with subsidizing everything? They “donated” their time/money and had their name put on a building in honor of the generosity. They also help invest in upcoming ideas that people had.

    If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it till I die. There is NOTHING in the tax law that says you HAVE to take a deduction. So all these rich people that say we have to raise the rates on rich people are hypocrits. First, those that always say the rich should pay more don’t want to pay more unless “everyone” else has to pay more. And two, they DO NOT have to take a single deduction on their taxes or find tax havens and other write-offs that their high-paid accountants tell them to take if they think it is so important for rich people to pay more. BUCk UP buddy … write the check!

    • A hundred years ago, charitable giving came from one’s income without taxes being forcibly withheld. The advent of the income tax, when it was designed to fund legitimate, constitutionally authorized government expenses did not really have a significant impact, and charitable giving continued much as before.

      Once government began to fund social programs, thereby forcing taxpayers to participate in what was essentially a replacement for voluntary charitable giving, there began a philosophical conflict for those who were doing the giving.

      The general sentiment became that if the government was going to take money I was already predisposed to giving to my chosen charities, I should at least get a break on that which I continued to give out of my own goodwill.

      Just one more illustration of government’s propensity to displace private efforts and distort the efforts of the private sector, while screwing things up in the process.

      • RocklinConservative

        You are so much more eloquent than I in explaining 🙂

        I was making two points though. Hope it didn’t get too confused. One is that before governement was involved, charity was private. Government just messed it up. The other is for the rich libs/socialists out there that keep saying the rich should pay more (Ed Asner comes to mind at the moment). They already have the option… maybe I should rephrase to say “the right” … to pay more. They just choose to pay someone else a very high fee in order not to. And therefore, they are the epitome of hypocracy. IMHO 🙂

        • I fully agree with your posts. Bottom line, and where the proverbial “rubber meets the road”, is that Warren Buffett says taxes need to be higher for himself and everyone else, yet he refuses to lead by example and simply write a check over and above his legally-owed taxes.

          Perhaps if he did so, he (and others like Michael Moore, George Clooney, Anna Wintour, etc.) they might have more credibility.

  • 911Infidel

    Only a true follower of Satan could lie with surety. Contempt is better than admiration Kraut.

    • mike3e4r7

      To be fair, he said he “almost” admired him, and then emphasized the word “almost” – but contempt is good.

      • 911Infidel

        I said contempt…not “almost” contempt…just contempt.

      • RocklinConservative

        But if you are as malicious as Obama … “almost” admiring is “almost” a compliment. I think contempt should have been better suited for the situation.

        • Jay

          Knowing Krauthammer, that was probably some of his deadpan sarcasm, not actual admiration in any way. I get the impression the doctor personally detests 0 but has far to much class to come right out and say so.

    • proudhispanicconservative


      • 911Infidel

        Ditto to what I told the other guy.

  • TitaniumEagle

    There’s an article I read a year or two ago containing a list of the ‘best’ liars in history. I think when all is said and done, Obama will find his name at the top of any such list. I’m fairly certain that he deludes himself into believing what he says — I can’t imagine anyone being able to deceive so efficiently otherwise.

    • creeper

      One wonders if there is perhaps a mental condition that precludes the sufferer from recognizing truth.

  • He can lie all the time because the media covers up for him.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Spot on!

      If Bush took a tinkle, the media would fact check that… but Obama takes a big ol dump and they look the other way and claim it smells like roses.

      Today’s main stream media are nothing more than domestic terrorists. They are destroying this country with their lies, cover ups and neglect.

      • badbadlibs

        Perfectly said; “Today’s main stream media are nothing more than domestic terrorists”.
        They are singularly responsible for the election and re-election of the worst human being to ever be president of this country. I hold them in utter contempt.

        • Sober_Thinking


    • sDee

      A lie is not a lie not a lie, unless State Media deems it so.
      The truth becomes a lie when the State Media so deems it.
      The Facts Checkers lie in wait to confirm.
      The natural sheep and slaves await the comfort of being told what they want to hear.

      It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth — and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. /

      Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those, who having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?

      For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
      Patrick Henry

    • badbadlibs

      He never, never, never has to answer for his lies. He will one day, but here on earth…not so much. You are so right, Dan C.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    Krauthammer’s outrage when Obama lies would’ve been more believable had he been consistent from the beginning and during the elections, if he after the second debate had not said “Obama won on points”, instead of saying Obama lied, I would believe his outrage a little bit more.

    • mike3e4r7


  • Obama is a Dictator that just emerged from It’s cocoon. I normally don’t make inflammatory statements because I always want to be able to stand by every remark I make, that is the reason I don’t hide behind a pseudonym anymore.

    I really believe this. I hope I’m wrong, but slowly beginning to be convinced I’m probably not. I’ll only be certain after the “shock and awe” campaign of regulation and taxation really gets going in January. The national media is going to have to pick a side and stop trying to pretend to straddle the fence. Which side they pick will be indicative of where we will eventually end up. I’m not going to hold my breath. I’m certainly not going to sit on my hand and Hope.

    • RocklinConservative

      They have picked a side. I would rather they straddle the fence per se. That’s what they are suppose to do…. be objective and non-biased.

      • How about not even straddle the fence, but just tell the damn TRUTH! THAT would work!

  • stage9

    These two video took him out of context, that’s why he appears to completely contradict himself. Haven’t ya’ll learned that yet? It isn’t that Obama is ever WRONG, it’s just that your HEARING IS WRONG! It’s not HIM, it’s YOU!

    Stop questioning your mahadi, (may allah spit on him).

  • Joe

    I actually have “good” news about FOX

    ROVE and MORRIS may have been “benched for being stupid” for now

    I was a big FOXwatcher only because it was the only alternative –

    Now I bypass the channel –

    Obviously – NO one knows what happened !

    Even Krauthammer blew it quite a few times

    • Sober_Thinking

      Fox blew it completely… Rove and Morris missed the boat by a mile. They have lost any credibility I wasted on them in the past.

      • Joe

        Them and every other dolt that missed the boat on this election

        It looks as though ALL of HISTORY is being re-written

        and THAT is what I am terrified about!

        WE MUST get on the right track – NO time to lose!

  • Conniption Fitz

    Obama has had years and years of practice.

    The Marxism and Islam he was taught from birth is a lie.
    He has lived under various false names.
    His pastor preaches lies.

    • stage9

      Really. Lying is second nature to liberals. You can’t be a good criminal unless you master the art of lying.

      • Jay

        HA! Absolutely right. When I was an active alcoholic, I used to lie for no purpose- just to stay in practice I guess.

    • Sober_Thinking

      And the media always let it slide… he was the chosen one and the media has always covered for him.

      You are right.

  • mder4thegov

    Charles, when you’re not held accountable for anything you say or do, and you’re an indoctrinated Alinsky-ite, contradicting and lying is easy.
    Here’s a bit of advice, Dr.: Instead of worrying about which beltway cocktail parties you and the rest of the RINO’S–over at Fox News get invited, you should call out the corrupt, liberal media for their complicity in the destruction of a once proud and great country.
    How’s that for a plan?

    • ryanomaniac

      He has done that. Called one NYT reporter out straight to his face.

  • 1Emmit

    Charles, a note: One can’t explain Obama’s skill, ruthlessness and “supreme confidence” in any rational, didactic or objective manner. Frankly, it appears that he possess, dare I say it? He appears to possess a super natural ability to lie with exacting and compelling confidence and conviction. Some reporters, authors and even supporters find him “mysterious”. I find him scarey.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Or he simply could be possessed… 🙂

      • nibblesyble

        I don’t think you are far off there Sober.

      • badbadlibs

        I believe it to be so….bo actually “hisses” when he speaks. ssssssssssss

        • sarahsupporter

          I know I hate that hissing with his “s”. I mute him whenever he is on TV, (which is almost always).

          • Sober_Thinking

            Me too. I hate looking at him… but hearing his freaking arrogant lies is too much. He is a complete prepuce.

          • badbadlibs

            Mute and/or change the channel altogether. He puffs his cheeks out, hisses and has a cadence that’s just unbearable. And people made fun of President G. W. Bush.

        • Sober_Thinking


          My preciousssssssssss…..

    • StrangernFiction

      He is pure evil.

    • Jay

      He believes his own lies, that’s what makes him so convincing. In his own narcissistic view of himself, he can do no wrong and therefore not lie. Of course that doesn’t rule out posession, either.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Every liar eventually loses track of their own lies. Come on Obama… the truth will set you free man.

    Until his mind is unclouded with ignorance, evil and liberalism, he will remain the king of lies and deception.

  • Don

    Obama is a cold-blooded pathological liar. Come on, Charlie, tell us something we don’t know. You would have to have a single digit IQ to not know that.

  • proudhispanicconservative

  • Rocco11

    Communists lie, it’s what they do…

  • HarrietHT2

    “Almost admire him,” for his lying. That is a truly wicked thing to say.

    It should appall him and scare him to the core of his being.

    • mike3e4r7

      I’m not really a particular fan of Krauthammer’s, but I think he was just being rhetorical/humorous when he said he almost admired him (i.e. If you were a lying and deceitful person, Obama is someone you would admire because he is the master of deceit)

      • toongoon

        You pegged it!

      Admire is an endearing term and it is most certainly a term that should not be used when describing evil, it empowers it,

  • Rocco11

    Anybody remember Benghazi?

  • In short, you’re admiring how well he can lie to the American public? Well, I guess the naive and gullible American public bought all the lies last election day. So when the ugly reality hits the American public when our economy finally does collapse from all the uncontrolled spending, I hope they remember these lies, not that they will.

    • Rocco11

      Chuck was a speechwriter for Walter Mondale, don’t let his “conservatism” fool you…

    I honestly can’t remember the last time a Leftist told the truth, about anything…

    The acting professionals should be so proud of BO, he takes their craft to new hights ! It’s why actors and politicians get on so well. Birds of a feather and all.

  • Krauthammer is learning finally after proclaiming Obama a moderate when he was first elected. For those of us that did our homework we knew better and not much of Obama surprises us.

    • sDee

      Or he has finally come to grips with the ugly reality that all of the intellectual rationalization, relativism, and equivalency which normally sustains the DC cocktail crowd, is worthless when starring into the evil face of America’s destruction.

      The Great White’s have taken over the shark tank.

  • stang289

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    • sDee

      What destroyed Carter was that the consequences of his socialist, globalist actions (double digit interest rates, 4x gas prices, inflation, taxes, Iran hostage, unemployment, and “malaise”) were just too great for the media to coverup.

      Reagan did not have to run against Carter, he just needed to remind America of where socialism and communism lead. We connected the dots.

      This regime, the Fed, and State Media have done a masterful job of whitewashing, covering up and postponing the consequences of Hussein’s fascism until well after his re-election.

  • It isn’t just his lying with ease that gets me, it is his arrogance. He honestly believes the hype about himself and thinks he is King. There is no discussion…no compromise from him…nothing, only a “this is what I want and will have” mentality. He has no desire to help the people of this country in any way. His sole intention is to destroy the Republican party because it represents, or has represented in the past, everything that he loathes. He will bring the entire country down and blame the Republicans and the media will lap it up. The words of Ravi Zacharias come to mind, “If a nation is determined to go in a certain direction, God will step aside and second the motion.” The thing that will bring Obama down, and it WILL happen, is his pride. I am truly grateful that God is the One in charge and He is very much still on the throne 😉

  • It’s worth writing this again:

    Obama: here’s a guy who, after you lay tip money on the table for the waitress, he reaches down, grabs it, and looks you in the eye as he pockets it, and says he never touched your money.
