Charles Krauthammer SLAMS Obama's National Land Grab: 'As undemocratic as you can get...'
As December comes to a close, it's time to reflect on the past year. Or in this case, the past eight years. We've lived through almost a decade of Barack Obama's "legacy." Which, among scholarly groups, is oft referred to by its scientific name - the colossal turdnado.
In that time, Obama has run the country with the decorum of a spoiled girl on an episode of My Super Sweet Sixteen. Tantrums included. Now that sassy Barry's term is reaching an end, he's ramped the brattiness up to 11 (see Obama Pushes Last-Minute Rule FORCING States to Fund Planned Parenthood). His latest act of moral superiority involved declaring a few more national monuments in Utah and Nevada. Truly a lasting achievement on BO's part. Bask in his thoughtfulness and love of nature, lowly earth-haters!
You know who's not impressed? Charles Krauthammer...
“This is about as anti-democratic as you can get. You were in office for eight years — you got your mandates — and on all of these issues… he is doing all these things that have been explicitly rejected by his own party,” Krauthammer lamented. “Then he doesn’t have the courage of his own convictions, getting them done to lock in his successor.”
“It’s very anti-democratic.”
“I would imagine that allowing mixed use and some exploration would be a good thing for the country, but Obama sees himself as God hovering over the country dispensing goodies..."
“He figures, ‘I’ve got control here. No one can stop me, and it may be somewhat irreversible.'”
Bingo. There's the face meltage.
This is simply the latest measure Obama has taken in an attempt to add to his long list of "achievements" in the White House. Quite honestly, the dude has a thing for erecting monuments (see YOUR TAX DOLLARS: White House Plans to Announce First National Gay Monument). It's a curious hobby, but one readily welcomed so long as it distracts him from committing more extreme acts of "progress."
Mr. Nobel Peace Prize did a number on the economy and healthcare industry. Not to mention sidestepping the will of the people on numerous occasions. But to be fair, Obama has done some other things too. For instance, now we have an eternally unusable land mass to stare at in Utah. So there's that. One of many things for which we have to thank the Gaia-worshiping marsh ogre.
Speaking of Obama's legacy...
