Former President Barack Obama spoke last night about the importance of political “courage” in his first public remarks following the health care vote in the House last week. Charles Krauthammer–not a big Donald Trump fan–tonight said Obama expressed a level of condescension that served as a good reminder of why we should be grateful he’s out of office.
“It’s been a full 100 days,” Krauthammer observed, “but it was nice to be reminded of why we should be grateful as a nation he is gone.”
He said the “complete moral condescension” Obama showed last night in talking about opponents as cowards and building himself up as the one holding the “courageous position” is nonsense.
Krauthammer said this was a recurring element throughout Obama’s eight years and concluded, “Good riddance, Mr. President.”
