Krauthammer: If GOP can’t win Senate, ‘the party ought to look for another country’

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer projected a big win for the Republicans in November, giving them a 70 percent chance of winning the Senate.  

Video from Daily Caller.

 “If the GOP can’t win back the Senate in a climate like this, maybe the party ought to look for another country,”  he told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly Tuesday.

Krauthammer explained why he thinks the climate is ripe for the win:

The reason is this is essentially a referendum on Obama. In 2010 it was a referendum on his ideology. The overreach with Obamacare, the stimulus, cap and trade, and now, six years in, it’s referendum on ideology, but now added on to that, it’s on shear competence.

When you are not only the party in government, you are the party of government, and you preach about the glories of government and in fact you get Hillary saying the other day, you know, it’s not corporations that create jobs. The implication being it’s government, then if you are incompetent and lose the confidence of the people you are in trouble. You have every scandal there is. Everything from the VA, to the Obamacare rollout to the Secret Service and now with Ebola. Where they are running around, have no idea what to do and they change the protocols every other day.

So, given the climate, I think it would be, you know, if the GOP can’t win back the Senate in a climate like this, maybe the party ought to look for another country.
