Krauthammer on Obamacare: "It’s the usual liberal arrogance and paternalism".



“It is an essential part of ObamaCare that the government dictates what is supposed to be the correct level of coverage. It’s the usual liberal arrogance and paternalism. … [Obama] probably knew that that’s an essential element of what he has created.” As usual he's concise and objective.... much like a Coroner conducting an autopsy. Video

Also love it when he throws in a term that so precisely nails an underlying component to a contentious issue: "... the supine press".

Sean Hannity didn't even know Mr. Krauthammer was in a wheel chair until recently. As, Mr. Krauthammer does not use the fact that he is in a wheelchair to any disadvantage.

Hannity is dumb - but is he that dumb?

Granted, I was a fan of Krauthammer for a number of years before I found out that he was in a wheelchair.

But, c'mon - Hannity should know better.

Let's be honest.... who among us had prior knowledge he was in a wheelchair the first time you saw him?

I've watched him many times, and had no idea.

I would think that Hannity is not on the set when Krauthammer is being make-up powdered and microphoned up; to: see he is in a wheelchair. I don't think Krauthammers' wheelchair has arms because he does not want an issue made out of it.

I've known about his paralysis for a while. I believe he was in his 20s and in med school when he suffered a spinal injury diving into water.

ETA: Yep..

quote:

Krauthammer was born on March 13, 1950, in New York City[2] and raised in Montreal[3] where he attended McGill University and obtained an honors degree in political science and economics in 1970. The following year, he was a Commonwealth Scholar in politics at Balliol College, Oxford, before returning to the United States and entering Harvard Medical School. During Krauthammer's first year of medical school, he was paralyzed in a diving accident[2][4] and was hospitalized for 14 months. However, he continued his medical studies and graduated with his class, earning his MD in 1975. From 1975 to 1978, Krauthammer was a resident and then a chief resident in psychiatry at the Massachusetts General Hospital. In 1984, he became board certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.[5] During his time as chief resident, he identified a form of mania based on a concomitant disorder, which was laid down as "Secondary Mania".[6] He also co-authored the path-finding study on the epidemiology of mania.[7]

I just recently found out he was a shrink.

Brilliant man, indeed.

That explains his loose use of numbers and projections, especially his estimate of the costs of the Iraq-War when he was leading the cheerleading effort over at Fox in 03.

Brilliant at being wrong on his prognostications and similar to psychiatry in the sense that the treatments he proposes are always additive rather than subtractive, creating unintended, impossible to predict, consequences.

Obama is ineptly raping America, has utterly failed on foreign policy while releasing terrorists. Yet, you want to revisit the Iraq war in 03 while downgrading Krauthammer?
