ANALYSIS: Charles Krauthammer Calls Obama's DNC Speech 'One of the Emptiest I've Ever Heard on a National Stage'

"I was stunned," Fox News Contributor Charles Krauthammer began. "There was nothing in it ... there was nothing in there that tells us how he's going to go from today to tomorrow."

The syndicated columnist, reacting to President Obama's DNC speech shortly after it was delivered, went on to say that the president "...pulled numbers out of a hat ... What we heard from Obama was a vision ... He doesn't say how he gets from point A to point B." Krauthhammer added, tongue in cheek, "I have a vision of America where there’s no disease and everybody has a private airplane. But unless I tell you how we get there, I've said nothing."

Vice President Joe Biden's speech appealed to Mr. Krauthammer far more than the president's. "I felt the Biden speech was infinitely better, because it was empathic."

He concluded by calling the speech "flat," joking that "otherwise, I loved it, really."
