Charles Krauthammer left his colleagues on the Fox News panel speechless during a discussion Thursday on President Obama’s fundraising efforts for the 2014 elections, and his inability to get what he wanted into the gun control laws currently being considered.
“All he wants now is the money,” Krauthammer said quietly. After an awkward silent pause, host Chris Wallace spoke up.
“You don’t really mean that?” Wallace asked.
While it’s likely Obama won’t get what he wants in a Senate vote, Krauthammer said that even if the bill includes broader background checks, it “won’t make a difference.”
“Knowing all that, he is out there now exploring it as an issue. He is not going to get the solution he wanted, so he will make an issue,” Krauthammer said. “And that’s the way he operates. He does it on immigration. He does it on a lot of stuff. If you can’t win on a solution or get your way, you turn it into cash. He is excellent at turning stuff into cash.”
