Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer offered a scathing critique of President Obama in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling that his recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board were invalid, saying if Obama were a Republican, he’d already be impeached.
“He got really smacked down,” Krauthammer said of the decision, which he termed a “major rebuke.”
“Look, he’s not a natural politician,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist added. “I don’t think he even likes politics, which is odd for a man who is president. He clearly has completely failed at doing what a president has to do, which is work with the other side. But the worst part of it is he doesn’t care about the constitution.”
Krauthammer spoke of the potential long term effects of the president’s abuse of power.
“There will be presidents after him,” he said. “And if he gets away with all this overreach — creating laws, rewriting laws, ignoring laws — it will be a terrible defeat for the country and for the rule of law.
“And I think that is the worst part of this,” Krauthammer concluded. “If this were a Republican he’d be impeached now over all of these abuses.”
