80's <http://www.mahalo.com/1980s> Appointed to Presidential Council on
Bioethics in 2002 <http://www.mahalo.com/2002> Dr. Krauthammer is frequently
on the Fox News Channel. He is an M.D., a lawyer and is paralyzed from the
neck down. A friend went to hear Charles Krauthammer. He listened with 25
others in a closed room. What he says here, is NOT 2nd-hand but 1st. The
ramifications are staggering for us, our children and their children.

Last Monday was a profound evening. Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke to the
Center for the American Experiment. He is a brilliant intellectual, seasoned
& articulate. He is forthright and careful in his analysis, and never
resorts to emotions or personal insults. He is NOT a fear monger nor an
extremist in his comments and views. He is a fiscal conservative, and has
received a Pulitzer Prize for writing. He is a frequent contributor to Fox
News and writes weekly for the Washington Post.

The entire room was held spellbound during his talk. I have summarized his
comments, as we are living in uncharted waters economically and

Even 2 Dems at my table agreed with everything he said! If you feel like
forwarding this to those who are open minded and have not drunk the
Kool-Aid, feel free....

Summary of his comments:

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. The taking down of the Clinton
dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The Clinton's 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

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 HEALTHCARE 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

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 & 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 reelected 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 Dr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.

8.. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong.
Republicans are pining for another Reagan, but there will never be another
like him. Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & 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 hyperinflation,
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 bailouts 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.
Do yourself a long term favor; send this to all who will listen to an
intelligent assessment of the big picture. All our futures and children's
futures depend on our good understanding of what is really going on in DC,
and our action pursuant to that understanding! It really IS up to each of us
to take individual action! Start with educating your friends and neighbors!
But if you are happy with the country today delete this message and be part
of the problem.
