The positive reviews of former President Bill Clinton‘s speech at the Democratic National Convention seemed nearly universal. But Fox News’ Charles Krauthammer‘s opinion was starkly different. Deeming it “truly self-indulgent,” Krauthammer said the speech was strange and seemed like a Clinton was running for a third term.
“I think it was a giant swing and a miss,” he said, adding that it won’t “move the needle.” It did have “classic Clinton elements,” he added, noting that it was “humorous” and “engaging.” But there were negatives, Krauthammer said — namely that it was “sprawling, undisciplined and truly self-indulgent.”
“This is one of the strangest nomination speeches I think ever given,” he said. “It was kind of an amalgam between a State of the Union address, a policy wonk seminar and what sounded to me like a campaign speech for a third Clinton term.”
There was “no recognition whatsoever,” Krauthammer argued, that the current conditions are a result of the Obama administration.
“I think it was a wasted opportunity of what could have been a great, stirring, rousing endorsement of Obama,” he said.
