Krauthammer on State of the Union: 'This Speech Is About Spending Your Way To Prosperity'

Charles Krauthammer had some harsh words for President Obama's message during Tuesday's State of the Union address.

Moments after its completion, Krauthammer said on Fox News, "He says you can’t cut your way to prosperity. This speech is about spending your way to prosperity" (photo courtesy AP).

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: One of the things that these Red State Democrats who are going to go up for reelection next year are scared to death about is precisely having to vote. And here was Obama saying over and over again, “You deserve a vote. You want to be on the record.” Well, there are a lot Democrats who don’t want to be on the record on all of these issues, and I think he will endanger them.

But I think he’s looking for his legacy. He’s not looking for a Senator here or there in the Congress. He wants to be remembered for a man who changed America. That’s what he said. He started with ObamaCare, and now this litany of programs. You know, he says you can’t cut your way to prosperity. This speech is about spending your way to prosperity.
