Krauthammer: Obama "Doesn't Engage On The Issues"

Charles Krauthammer: "The president is showing in his response his style of demonizing and delegitimizing opponents' arguments. He pretends that he's a professor who deals in Socratic way, recognizes arguments and deals honestly with them. This is extrememly dishonest. The Republicans, he charged in that speech, are opposing his reform on finance entirely on political grounds. There are obvious arguments that all the claims that the president has made--that it will ensure that we're not going to have a bailout in the future and all the others--are not true. There are a lot of independent economists who say it is going to increase the chance of a bailout. But he doesn't engage on the issues. He accuses the opponent of ill motives, always as a matter of politics. He's acting in the national interest, and the others are acting for base political motives."
