Krauthammer Dubs Obama's Syria Address 'Oddest Presidential Speech Ever'
Charles Krauthammer reacted to President Obama’s national address on Syria tonight on Special Report. Bret Baier asked the syndicated columnist about the added time it will take to wait for a possible Russian proposal.
Krauthammer said, “That’s what makes this one of the most odd presidential speeches ever delivered. Here’s a president who urgingly addresses the nation on all channels to call for a pause in something that the nation does not want to do in the first place. This is almost unbelievable.”
He called the Russian proposal a “farce” because they are calling for the United States to take military action off the table. “I don’t see this as a serious proposal. I think Obama sees this as a way to negotiate.”
Krauthammer predicted that there will not be a vote in Congress, there will not be a strike and no weapons will be removed from Syria.
