Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer came out swinging Wednesday against President Obama’s latest attack against Fox News saying that Obama is either one two things – cynical or delusional.
The network news giant has fought back hard against Obama’s allegation that Fox portrays poor people in a negative light just to make the president look bad.
“I think the effort to suggest that the poor are sponges, leeches, don’t want to work, are lazy, are undeserving, got traction,” Obama said of Fox News while speaking at Georgetown University Tuesday.
“Look, this is sort of pathological Obama,” Krauthammer told radio host Hugh Hewitt Wednesday, adding that the president lives a “mythological world.”
“He’s either cynical, or just hopelessly deluded on this,” he said.
Krauthammer called out Obama for resorting to personal attacks – a favorite tactic of the left – rather than debating facts and accused him of repeatedly engaging in “ad hominem” attacks.
“He doesn’t know a damn thing about Fox.”
Krauthammer kept up the defense later, during his regular spot on Fox’s “Special Report with Bret Baier.”
“He’s letting us know that his arrogance knows no limits,” Krauthammer said.
“Of course he wants a change in coverage, particularly the coverage of himself.
“After all, he was considered a Greek god in 2008. And right now, people are actually judging him on [his] merits. He doesn’t like that.”
Fox News has been one of the few media outlets bold enough to challenge the president’s failed policies – something Obama is clearly not used to.
“There’s only one person on the firmament who doesn’t have to change and that’s Barack Obama,” Krauthammer said.
“He seems impervious to empirical evidence. The same view he had of himself upon attaining the presidency, he has today.”
