NRI Summit: Krauthammer

He talks for about an hour. It's fantastic, a must-watch. Unfortunately, I can't embed the video. Here it is.

Added: Here is the live stream.

Added 2: I found a snippet, just one question and answer. It's embedded below the fold.

A relative of a former co-worker (hows that for a connection?) works for the John Locke Foundation in North Carolina, andtold a few things about Krauthammer.

1) The last few years have really been great for his "business" and paid for appearances. The John Locke Foundation paid a pretty penny to have him speakto them.
2) Because of his handicap, he is actually not in very good health, and has a lot of unusual demands that go along with his appearances.
3) Nice work if you can get it. Seen him speak, and have limited interest in what he has to say. Same warmed over "advice" that may or may not work, but he still gets paid. Capitalism!

What is really needed is for the "Tea Party" to take over the Republican Party from the inside and re-organize it to make it more of a populist and vital organization, instead of Democrat-Lite. Champion freedom, liberty and the enumerated rights of the Constitution. Is this rocket science? Many commenters say the SAME THING everyday here for free, unless someone gets to read other stuff because of the Platinum Membership as AoS

Speaking at the National Review Institute 2013 Summit, Krauthammer said that a strategy of threatening to allow the nation to breach its debt ceiling and allowing automatic tax increases and budget cuts to take effect – better known as going over the “fiscal cliff” – would only hurt congressional Republicans in the eyes of voters.

“You can’t call the bluff, or Obama will do it,” Krauthammer said. “Suicide is not a good option.”

Krauthammer did offer a little hope that Republicans could advance their agenda, if only incrementally. He said that the recent debt ceiling vote was a victory for the Republicans, because they forced the Democrats to produce a budget in the next few months—something they have not done in four years.

The lure of the party circuit seduces them all eventually. I've been to few as an outsider myself. I remember leaving one with my wife grousing in the car about wanting to slap one of Sen. Kenndy's aides. And she's not very political. She called him, "prissy", a term I had never heard cross her lips before.

But then, she's a Montana girl.

Had an interesting talk with a couple LEO's about Gunner Cuomo's little escapade. Upstate (where I live) is pretty much unanimously against it. None even want to think about confiscation OR enforcement. Some, I suspect will go along, but they look to be in the minority.

We tend to be quite conservative, with the left confined to places like Saratoga Springs. They haven't metastasized in sufficient numbers yet, though they tried and failed to put the brakes on a local gun show recently.

When one audience member asked him about the president leading America on the “slippery slope to socialism,” Krauthammer firmly said that socialism is too broad of a word to use for the president—social democrat is more accurate. He wanted to give the president the courtesy of acknowledging his true position—a courtesy, he noted, that the president does not give to his conservative rivals.

Be entertained by him all you want, but I think he is just talking to make money, and not really invested in changing things for the better. Obama getting elected was a good business outcome for him, as he is now more popular speaking to Right - of - Center groups (like the John Locke Foundation).

You forgot John J. Gilligan (Kathleen Sibelius' dad) who famously closed the State parks as Governor to get even with the people for not voting for a tax increase. That got him un-elected real quick in 1974 and two more terms for Jim Rhodes.
Dick Celeste, crooked, silly and incompetent, who brought about the State-backed savings and load crisis earlier in Ohio than nationwide.
Strickland is just doofus, he just did nothing as Governor, and still he ALMOST go re-elected.
2014 will be interesting as to whether or not Kasich gets re-elected, by a little or a lot. I still think Kasich has thoughts about running for President, and if he is re-elected (strongly)in 2014, he might think about running in 2016.

166 Geez how could I forget Gilligan; what a fucking dunce he was with that move. Celeste was a northern version of Clinton although with a lezzo wife who came out of the closet. His father was really a piece of shit bilking seniors in nursing homes and getting caught offloading assets to his trash children and grandchildren before declaring bankruptcy. I was really hoping they'd seize the home on Kelly's Island that Dick and his horde of feral children occupied although I don't think that happened (as if the cocksuckers at the Plain Dealer would cover it).


Twitch Strickland was just inept. Literally nothing that asshole did in four years was a success including backing Muffer Stalin-Rodham in 2008. Yes, Kasich should've slattered him in 2010; that was the first clue what a fucking shithole the state had become. Btw, Twitch has been a fucking failure post-governor since they trucked him up to Madison to lead the union humps against Walker. That worked well.

172 Watching it right now. CK is a bright guy, but he is an insider. I lean more to Mark Steyn's thinking myself.

His opinion of TFG is, I think a bit naive. TFG is a socialist and giving the chance to be a bad socialist no matter what the people in the beltway think.


Anyone who thinks we are getting through the next four years without bloodshed is fooling themselves.

175 Kraut will stand with his D.C. brothers and sisters when push comes to shove.

He is a Conservative of Convenience and nothing more.

His job is to make folks think things aren't so bad that they should get angry and do something rash.

Fuck him and all like him.

176 "I lean more to Mark Steyn's thinking myself."

There you go. After the George Will bashing I was trying to think of one major writer that is actually more to the right then Will, couldn't think of one. From Townhall to the National Review. Never thought of Steyn, he actually is.

Posted by: lowandslow at January 26, 2013 01:02 PM (Fz2C7)

177 And Steyn does not shy away from any topic that I can think of.
He recognizes the dangers Islam poses to a free society for one.

178 krauthammer is smart and great on critisizing the progs, but when is comes to conservatives all he ever has to say is how this one is not smart, and that one is not electable, and then recommends the blandest, milquetoast dude. And we lose. He should stick to hammering the progs and keep quiet about the rest

So Krauthammer is an yucky"insider", but associating the Right with stupid shit like this is going to get us back in power? Jesus Fucking Christ

180 >>>What is really needed is for the "Tea Party" to take over the Republican Party from the inside and re-organize it to make it more of a populist and vital organization, instead of Democrat-Lite.

Here's where the Tea Party goes wrong: populism is a disease that kills civilizations. In cases when the majority of citizens are just plain imbeciles (i.e. now), why in the world should we want the vox populi to be the be all end all?

Getting in power is for Establishment Tools. We will stop socialism with talk radio and protests on the mall, you'll see.

182 Krauthammer is an insider, how yucky he is is really irrelavant.

Get mad all you want, but history has been kind to us as a nation for quite awhile. I am not of the opinion that such kindness is going to continue, history is not on our side. There are too many signs to the contrary.

I hope I am wrong, pray I am wrong, but I shall continue preparing as if I am correct.

If you really believe there will be bloodshed within the next four years, keep it to yourself. The rest of us are trying to win, and those kind of public statements make our job harder.

Posted by: CJ at January 26, 2013 02:09 PM (9G+G5)

185 "And harshly worded blog comments. Nothing strikes fear into liberals like blog comments."

And you think this will end in the comment section of blogs? What do think will eventually happen? As of now our (conservatives) top political leaders are advancing an immigration policy that pushing this nation further to the left, their solutions to our fiscal problems amounts to slowing the rate of government growth, they're 100% behind turning our military into a liberal diversity program, their foreign policy mirrors that of Obama only they think we should manage it better, etc. etc. This is supposedly our (conservative) leadership. So I'll ask again, how do you think this eventually unfolds? It ain't going to end with some magical election that allows the conservative agenda to just happen.
Hell I'd be amazed if this doesn't end in bloodshed.

Posted by: lowandslow at January 26, 2013 02:17 PM (Fz2C7)

186 Win? Win?

Short of a singular leader emerging (possibly Rand Paul or Marc Rubio) and dragging the GOP into some sense of actual conservatism we are not winning, we are delaying the inevitable. We have the entire dem party committed to national suicide and 90% of "our" party committed to enabling at the very least.

"Our" leaders are the passengers on the train crying out for the drivers to go over that cliff a little slower.

So, yeah, I think we are boned.

And just for the record I can work for the best and hope that I am wrong and still say hey if things do not change drastically then we are boned. Crying fire in a burning theatre is acceptable on occasion and even needed. Pointing out the facts is necessary.

190 The problem with "conservatives" like Kraut and Will and David Brooks is their pride -- they think they're floating above history, detached, passing judgements on the affairs of lesser mortals, and loath to show passion over the death of freedom because freedom comes and goes and philosophers don't get excited about such things. None of them has ever seen close up or been affected by economic want -- and none of them expect to ever do so. They're cold fish, and they think that's a virtue.

191 CK is not a conservative. He just can't stand putting what he and his pals talk about over cocktails. He's a NYWASHHARVARD know it all commonly known as a blowhard in the south. If you listen and subscribe to his thinking you're and idiot who can't think for yourself also known as a liberal.

90 percent? Which means a select few here are part of that super special brave10%, right? Come on. Politicians want to be elected. And re-elected. Dems and Reps. When conservatism leads to them getting re-elected, we'll have more of it. No need to wait for the Magical Enchanged Perfect Candidate. Not that it doesn't help to have one who can speak in complete sentences.

I know the stakes are high. I know what the demographic trends are. I know the time to turn things around is not unlimited. But 'there will be bloodshed within four years' is not true, and makes the task more difficult.

Posted by: CJ at January 26, 2013 04:32 PM (9G+G5)

193 I think he's off a bit: the simple truth is that with the memetic poison of marxism (and nihilism for that is where the disaffected marxists turned up) the new generations have become increasingly hostile to conservative values due to years of being force fed propaganda and with the older generations soon to die out there will be an immense shift leftward very soon that will be irreconcilable with current conservative values. I think he also has immigrants wrong too. Maybe they're very religious but they also have foolish notions about ideals like generosity- unlike Webster's dictionary they feel that robbing Peter to pay for Paul is no different than self-sacrifice to say nothing of their conception of strong men.
