Charles Krauthammer Not Impressed With Obama’s SOTU: “Obama Is Capable of Giving Great Speeches… This Was Not One” … But MSM Says it was ‘Reaganesque’


Obama’s SOTU … flat and uninspired.

Charles Krauthammer was not impressed in the slightest with President Barack Obama’s SOTU speech.  Krauthammer stated that this is a president who is capable of giving great speeches and has … this was not one of them. He also went on to say that this was one of the weakest Obama speeches. I hate to break it to the liberal MSM, but the speech was hardly Reaganesque. The MSM will stop at nothing to shill for this president.


Video Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit

According to Nielson, 43 million watched Obama’s speech, which according to Hot Air is down from 52 million who watched Obama’s first SOTU and 48 million last year.

On Tuesday, January 25, 2011 President Obama delivered his State of the Union address. The address was carried live from approximately 9:00 PM- 10:15 PM on 11 networks. The sum of the average audience for those networks was 42,789,947 viewers, with a combined household rating of 26.6. The networks carrying the address included ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, TEL, UNI, CNN, Centric, CNBC, FOXNC, and MSNBC. Viewership to last night’s address was down 18% from his address on February 24, 2009 and down 11% from his State of the Union address last year on January 27, 2010.

From Newsbusterscomes the MSM falling over themselves trying to compare Barack Obama to Ronald Reagan. Pretty amazing seeing that when Reagan was in office the Libs had nothing good to say about him. I think thou dost compare too much. Could the MSM be any more obvious and desperate?


On CBS, Evening News anchor Katie Couric touted how political analyst Jeff Greenfield thought it was “down right Reaganesque”
and that “some” have argued “this could be his Reagan moment.”

These people are absolutely pathetic … Thankfully no one of any sound mind finds the MSM credible anymore.

      this is a president who is capable of giving great teleprompter readings and has … this was not one of them.

      Fixed it for you Chuck, your welcome.

      “Reaganesque” now is he? Does this guy have any of his own traits besides ignorant and hurtful jokes?

      I don’t know what is worse, this mocking bird or the parrots that cackle his praises afterwords.

      We all know there are a variety of opinions and perspectives in the pundit world, some quite predictable. I doubt anyone is surprised at what Fox News analyst (shill?) Krauthammer (and Hume) said; after all, that is their job to spin this.

      The same claim could be made for other comments from (your “always liberal”) MSM pundits. Given this landscape, I don’t considered it unexpected or unusual to have these differing comments from the punditocracy.

      We all have to admit that it doesn’t reach the level of discourse from when “human-animal hybrids” was delivered in one SOTU.

      How can he speak of so much spending in what he hopes to accomplish, then still speak of cutting and earmarks?

      One pretty much washes out the other….equaling=
      NOTHING gain or accomplished.

      Pretty much will sum up 4 years of Obama in office. Also shameless how the Tuscon shootings of Congresswoman was exploited by his own Speechwriters and Administration as an attempt to stop further diversification in Congress.

      Okay, great- we sat next to each other instead of on opposite sides of the room……NEXT?

      Dudes, anytime Krauthammer speaks – you’d better listen! He’s one of the smartest people in Washington, possibly the country!

    7. super dave on January 27th, 2011 2:19 pm

      uh, present !!

      But there’s a reason the tragedy in Tucson gave us pause. Amid all the noise and passions and rancor of our public debate, Tucson reminded us that no matter who we are or where we come from, each of us is a part of something greater – something more consequential than party or political preference.

      We are part of the American family. We believe that in a country where every race and faith and point of view can be found, we are still bound together as one people; that we share common hopes and a common creed; that the dreams of a little girl in Tucson are not so different than those of our own children, and that they all deserve the chance to be fulfilled.

      That, too, is what sets us apart as a nation.

      Now, by itself, this simple recognition won’t usher in a new era of cooperation. What comes of this moment is up to us. What comes of this moment will be determined not by whether we can sit together tonight, but whether we can work together tomorrow.

      I believe we can. I believe we must. That’s what the people who sent us here expect of us. With their votes, they’ve determined that governing will now be a shared responsibility between parties. New laws will only pass with support from Democrats and Republicans. We will move forward together, or not at all – for the challenges we face are bigger than party, and bigger than politics.

      I guess these words might be seen as exploitative by some, and perhaps they think these are Liberal, but not Conservative sentiments. However, I see them as American ideals, something we could, and should, all be proud to strive for.

      I’ve yet to find anything in the SOTU that reminds me of “diversification”, however.

      #8- Each word of that is true. While my thoughts and prayers have remained with Senator Giffords and all of the victims, you still not will convince me that Obama didn’t ride his fake “let’s all love one another” peace bus.

      It was proud to see Congress unite with their acknowledgement of the senseless violence wearing the blue and white ribbons. One of their own and many others suffered at the hands of a madman.

      I am saying- Obama exploited the horrible event to his advantage by working that in to his speech. I was more taken by his speech and dedication given in Tuscon regarding the event, this SOTU was unimpressive. Sorry, just my opinion. For such a great Orator, this was not one of his best.

    10. NGBoston on January 29th, 2011 2:58 pm

      #8- Also- please allow me to further pontificate that America awaits original Ideas, not recycled highlights from former Presidents or Civil Rights Leaders.

      Any writer worth his or her salt knows that use a quote from someone else without acknowledgement is plagiarism. Recycling highlights from past presidents is not what is needed for this country. The American people need original ideas and solutions, not worn out quotes. In any writing class, this is one of the first things they teach. In academica and the “real world,” plagiarism equals faliure. As a Harvard graduate and Law Review editor, President Obama should have known better.

    11. HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY RONALD WILSON REAGAN … A GREAT AMERICAN | Scared Monkeys on February 6th, 2011 12:51 pm

      [...] President Ronald Wilson Reagan was simply brilliant. Reagan could be serious, compelling, healing and humorous. The key fact is that he always knew when to have the correct communication tone to the American people, our allies and our enemies. How revered and respected was Ronald Reagan? During his years as President the MSM and Democrats savaged him just like they do the GOP today; however, in order for the MSM to try and rehabilitate Democrat Barack Obama’s presidency, they try to claim he is “Reaganesque”.
