Charles Krauthammer Election Analysis: Obama Won, But Has No Mandate

Charles Krauthammer responded to President Obama’s re-election with dire predictions for the next four years. “We are left as a country about where we started but a little worse off … Obama will go back to who he is," he said, adding, "He is a man of the Left and he will try to push his agenda through … the problem is that the country will slide.”

Krauthammer slammed President Obama

for going “small” and “negative” in his campaign instead of campaigning on ideas. Given the narrow margin of his victory, Krauthammer believes that the president won, but has no mandate.

However, he is "not as despairing as most people are." Krauthammer is optimistic for the Republican Party, citing its “strong bench,” naming several rising republican stars. Krauthammer actually thinks the future of the party is "quite bright."
