Krauthammer Calls Some of Obama's DNC Claims "Shameless and Unconvincing"
On tonight's Special Report, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer took on President Obama's DNC speech, specifically referring to the president's remarks in which he described Republicans' prescription for fixing the American economy.
"All they have to offer," he said, "is the same prescription they’ve had for the last thirty years: 'Have a surplus? Try a tax cut.' 'Deficit too high? Try another.' 'Feel a cold coming on? Take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning!'"
Krauthammer claims the Republicans, including Romney and Ryan, have been offering specifics for a long time.
"Obama has offered nothing ... he
hasn't offered anything anywhere," he said. "He's been in office for a term ... has he offered anything on Medicare? ... Has he done anything on social security? Anything on entitlement? Has he done anything on tax reform? He actually had the audactiy to refer to, as he called it, "my own debt commission." And he rejected it. I mean, it's shameless and I thought extremely unconvincing."
