Charles Krauthammer on President Obama's Agenda

Charles Krauthammer's analysis of TeamObama's restructuring of America, Part I and Part II.

Ask yourselves, is this direction you want America to be led? Not for me. Now only if we had a realistic opposition agenda that would energize people. It's simply not enough to oppose TeamObama's policies. Critics need a better alternative. Who will step forward and proclaim it?

"...Consider what he has already achieved. Obamacare alone makes his presidency historic. It has irrevocably changed one-sixth of the economy, put the country inexorably on the road to national health care and, as acknowledged by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus but few others, begun one of the most massive wealth redistributions in U.S. history..."

"...Obama is down, but it's very early in the play. Like Reagan, he came here to do things. And he's done much in his first 500 days. What he has left to do he knows must await his next 500 days -- those that come after reelection.
The real prize is 2012. Obama sees far, farther than even his own partisans. Republicans underestimate him at their peril"
