Krauthammer: Obama Wants ‘To Do as Little as Possible’

“That’s why the American people are so scared.”

Political analyst Charles Krauthammer offered this evaluation of Barack Obama’s Sunday night speech: “I think the reason Obama had to give that speech — and you really have to ask yourself, ‘What did he achieve?’ — is that he was told he had to show that he thinks this is a problem. His problem since the day he took office [is that] he never wanted to fight the War on Terror. He abolished the term. I think deep down he believes the War on Terror was a gross overreach. He said that in his speeches when he went abroad in 2009. He talked about America overreacting. And in a sense, that we have provoked this. He says, if you talk about the Muslims in a bad way, that recruits for ISIS. Guantanamo is a recruiter for ISIS. When the fact is that the cruelty and the savagery and the ideological law for ISIS is the recruiter for ISIS. But he locates the origin of all that recruiting in what we do and he thinks, therefore, that the cure is for us to do as little as possible. It’s an insane strategic view of the world, but he actually holds it. And I think that’s why the American people are so scared.”
