Charles Krauthammer is certainly no fan of President Obama, but if you’ve been watching his commentaries on the Fox News Special Report panel lately, you might sense that poor Charles is about to explode. He’s angry, and rightfully so, about Obama’s lack of decisive action on just about any foreign policy matter of importance.
The latest outrage, of course, is that the president’s failure to act quickly when Russia invaded Crimea may be one of the precise reasons — or at least a major contributing factor — why 23 Americans were killed on board a Malaysian flight yesterday.
“He’s had no reaction. He’s had no reaction to anything that I can tell in the last six months. Look, it isn’t as if we’re going to go to war with Russia, but we’ve denied Ukraine lethal weaponry on the grounds that we don’t want to escalate the conflict,” said Krauthammer. “The least the president could do is make a damned decision for once in his life and announce that we are now going to supply lethal weapons to assist the Ukrainians to defend themselves and to complete the offensive that is now going on in Eastern Ukraine to actually destroy the rebel insurgents.”
Amen, Charles…but don’t hold your breath. Obama spent barely 40 seconds on the issue of the downed aircraft yesterday, before launching into jokes about Joe Biden during his fundraiser:
Ah, presidential priorities…
