It’s good to see that others took notice of Charles Krauthammer swooning over Barack Obama’s ‘elegance,’ and other little nuances, which some of us viewed as near treason over the months (an not exclusive to Gingrich). Krauthammer has pummeled Newt and dismissed others as hardly being worthy of his attention. Today, Newt’s PAC is hitting back. Bout time!
George Will might have fired the first shots and the Wall Street Journal and National Review might have answered the call – but the leader of Establishment Media’s war against Newt Gingrich is now clearly Charles Krauthammer of Fox News. The long time former speechwriter for ultra liberal Walter Mondale uses several minutes of his time on the “Panel” each and every night to denigrate Gingrich personally while talking down the Former Speaker’s election chances.
“Remember, this is the man who was calling Barack Obama elegant long after most Americans had seen through the teleprompter” said C. Edmund Wright of Winning Our Future, a Super PAC supporting Gingrich and conservative issues. “He wasn’t quite as bad as David Brooks – who was strangely fascinated by Obama’s pant crease – but Krauthammer and Brooks and Will represent an establishment mentality that is frankly foreign to most Americans and certainly most conservatives.”
Wright added that while he respected Krauthammer’s intellect for many years, “it is really disturbing to see him make the petty denigrating comments about Newt – similar to or worse than what he’s said about Sarah Palin – while pretending that the Speaker’s immense accomplishments never happened. And the way he cherry picks poll numbers to characterize the race is simply intellectually dishonest.” Read the entire email here.
