Note: I did not write this. I am just re-posting it on NewGrounds because I agree with everything it says and thought others should see it.
This is 10 things Dr. Krauthammer said about Obama. "Dr. Krauthammer is an M.D. and he is paralyzed from the neck down. Be forewarned on what is happening. A friend went to hear Charles Krauthammer. He listened with 25 others in closed room. What he says here, is NOT 2nd-hand, but 1st. You would do well to read and pass this along to EVERYBODY that loves his country. This is VERY serious for the direction of our country. The ramifications are staggering for us and our children.
"1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be
underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn't show his emotions. It's
very hard to know what's behind the mask. Taking down the Clinton dynasty from a political neophyte was an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons still do not understand what hit them. Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time.
"2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton. He has a way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your position,
while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch
what he DOES!
"3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including dismantling capitalism. He can't be straightforward on his ambitions, as the public would not go along. He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada .
"4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, AND
NATIONAL HEALTH CARE by the Federal government. He doesn't care about the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The cap and trade will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is his healthcare program, because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive RATIONING of services, like in Canada. God forbid.
"5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one
around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and
run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can't
work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he's a far-left
secular progressive bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a
moderate, but will govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he does,
not what he says.
"6. Obama doesn't really see himself as President of the United States , but
more as a ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all, trying to
orchestrate and coordinate various countries and their agendas. He sees
moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America, as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!
"7. He is now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain) will not
come due until after he is re-elected in 2012. He would like to blame all
problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the
future. He has a huge ego, and Mr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.
"8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong.
We're pining for another Reagan, but there will never be another like him.
Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party. Newt
Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and
intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if
she is to be a serious candidate in the future. We need to return to the
party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility,
strong national defense, and state's rights.
"9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We are
spending trillions that we don't have. This could lead to hyper-inflation,
depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity. The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda. But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bail outs didn't work, nor will the stimulus package.
These were trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama's allies, unions and the
Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for #4 above.
"10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed, fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people are in pain, and the mantra of change caused people to act emotionally. Any Dem would have won this election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.
"11. In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be swept back into power. If it's under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If it's
between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the economy. I
hope this gets you really thinking about what's happening in Washington and Congress. There is a left-wing revolution going on, according to
Krauthammer, and he encourages us to keep the faith and join the loyal
resistance. The work will be hard, but we're right on most issues and can
reclaim our country, before it's far too late."

a German, wheel-chair bound intellectual, with a ridiculously descriptive/cool name... i'm highly suspicious.
First of all, where did you find this? Give the original source, since Krauthammer apparently made the remarks in private.
Secondly, this isn't a persuasive piece, but a manifesto of Krauthammer's opinions. It's well and good that you agree with him, but that alone doesn't really get us anywhere. He isn't asserting a position and justifying it, he's just saying what he thinks. There isn't any reasoning we can analyze, only conclusions.
Finally, nothing he allegedly said has not already been said before by others, so it's not as if this piece reveals some startling new insight. It makes me wonder why the original source even posted it at all.
This account is neither accurate nor authoritative. My views on Obama are well known. I've explained them in a series of five columns.
This email is somebody putting his own ideological stamp and spin on my views.
One giveaway of the superimposition of someone else's views on mine is the rather amusing use of phrases that I never use. To take just a few examples randomly: "God forbid," "far left secular progressive," "this is the first president ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!" "no country had ever spent themselves into prosperity," and, the real doozy, "states rights."
My views are clearly spelled out in that series of columns and subsequent writings. Anyone who wants to know my views should consult those and not this email.
So, basically, its another propaganda chain e-mail. But you, know, believe what you want.
And now to take bets on whether or not the topic starter is ever coming back to this thread and whether or not he'll admit he got tricked by a stupid-ass chain email that was written by a sweaty redneck in his mom's basement.
If you read this post please PM the starter of this thread or the ghost of the little boy who died in the lake will come to haunt you for the next 7 years.
Just so you know pox, some of the claims made by the e-mail are referenced in the articles, but in the e-mail they are made out to be these horrible things that might happen to ruin everything that makes America the "Real America", whereas the actual articles are more claiming that Obama is trying to radically change the U.S. and then compares his actions to historical context with out necessarily passing judgement. So... huge differences between the two, but also some core similarities.

I consider it quite an amazing accomplishment that someone actually had the ability to make you "stupider".
Just another classic chain e-mail with a political spin. Never open them!
Why people still believe them... I don't know!
It's a fake. Snopes says it's unverified, although that guy had written stuff on Obama. But not this...
Folks, if it's a chain email, then it's mostly shit...

*snap, snap, sah-naap*
Boy, you got your bitch on...
Did Krauthammer also develop the technology to transform the DNA sequences of Nazi soldiers so they could turn into superhumans?
