Krauthammer Pans New Obamacare Offensive: You Can’t ‘Repeal Reality with Rhetoric’

President Obama is on the offensive again over Obamacare, challenging critics to say what their alternative would be, if they’re really so convinced the Affordable Care Act needs to be repealed. But Charles Krauthammer told Bill O’Reilly Tuesday night that it’s a little late for the president to be trying this new line of attack, saying no speech, no matter how eloquently phrased, is going to change the fact that millions of people are losing their health insurance.

O’Reilly argued that Obama, in his heart of hearts, wants what he believes is best for the American people, but “his vision is running up against reality.” Krauthammer agreed, adding, “Obama thinks that he can repeal reality with rhetoric.”

He said a management problem can’t be solved with a few inspiring words from the president, especially with all the cancellations. Both Krauthammer and O’Reilly agreed that it’s very likely the law will “collapse into a chaotic mess,” with Krauthammer also pointing out that Democrats in Congress are “running away from Obamacare as fast as their feet will take them.”

But just because they can doesn’t mean Obama gets to, and as far as Krauthammer’s concerned, the president’s “got nowhere to run.”
