"I rarely heard a speech by a president so shallow, so hyper-partisan and so intellectually dishonest, outside the last couple of weeks of a presidential election where you are allowed to call your opponent anything short of a traitor. But we're a year and a half away from Election Day and it was supposed to be a speech about policy," syndicate columnist Dr. Charles Krauthammer said about President Obama's speech.

    And it was disgraceful. Krauthammer is correct.

    My own impression, listening to it live and then re-reading the transcript, was that this was the most shameful official speech I've ever heard from any President.

    Obama's whole philosophy is propaganda to demonize the Republicans.This is not leadership of THE WHOLE COUNTRY!

    Krauthammer is slow to the mark. Obamas electiom campainge was hyper partisan and and set the tone for his first couple years in office as the most partisan President in American history. From the very first month in office Obama had an attitude of "I won" so we do whatever the hell I want.
    Charles and others who allowed themselves to be sucked into the glory of our first viable black candidate, and first black President, just for the sake of having him are trying to slip past their failier of never having called Obama on any of his shortcomings and faults.

    Krauthammer is once again spot on. The fact that Obama is constantly in campaign mode was clearly evident.

    As a conservative libertarian, I find myself agreeing with the great CK about 70% of the time.
    He sure did nail it this time!

    There's a reason Obama's afternoon speech was so UGLY, SNEERING, PARTISAN, and STUPID.
    He was playing to his base, and his base is ugly, sneering, hyper-partisan, and stupid. :-)

    Dr. Krauthammer is 100% correct and if he had gone further to capsulate Obama's performance as President, that too would be disgraceful!
