Greta Van Susteren asks Charles Krauthammer why he titled a recent article â€œThe Vacant Presidency.â€ He responds saying, â€œLook, the world is going to Hell in a handbasket, youâ€™ve got war in Ukraine, youâ€™ve got war in the Middle East, youâ€™ve got ISIS on the move in the middle of the Middle East, youâ€™ve got Christians being expelled from parts of Iraq and weâ€™ve got the crisis on the border. And where is the â€˜president?â€™ It isnâ€™t news, heâ€™s in The Hamptons.â€
Krauthammer continues, â€œHeâ€™s raising funds, heâ€™s playing golfs, he doing photo-ops, heâ€™s not involved. Now some people are saying heâ€™s checked out, heâ€™s depressed, heâ€™s overwhelmed and heâ€™s withdrawing in some way. But thatâ€™s not completely true.â€
He reminds us how Obama is very engaged on domestic issues and his dictatorial threats. He says the lack of engagement is mostly in regards to foreign affairs and offers a theory as to why. Krauthammer says he thinks Obama believes that in the end aggression wonâ€™t pay, so the U.S. does not have to be involved.
Greta counters with examples of domestic problems which are being ignored, violence in Chicago and Detroit and the problem he created on Americaâ€™s southern border.
Krauthammer modifies his statement to say that there are certain domestic issues which Obama is interested in.
