Krauthammer: “Obama Is ‘President Zero’ – Zero Economic Expansion, Zero Jobs, Zero Ideas” (Video)

After the dismal jobs report Charles Krauthammer told the FOX News All Stars on Friday night, “Obama Is President Zero – zero economic expansion, zero jobs, zero ideas on how to cure the economy.”

Krauthammer went on to say the president’s speech on Thursday is a campaign speech.
“He doesn’t understand that his administration has stopped the economy in its tracks.”

    Well, Charles, we agree on one thing: Liberals are every bit as sick of Urkel as Conservatives.

  • Alfred

    Charles is right on. He must be a follower of Moonbattery. Blogger Dave Blount (aka Van Helsing) has been calling Obama Chairman Zero for years.

    These results are exactly what this administration wants.

    Please people, stop acting as though this is all some horrible mistake. This economy is precisely what obama’s handlers want it to be.

    Obama is an IDIOT. Obama is and has ALWAYS BEEN. A Marxist. The FOOLS that have followed Captain Hopey/Changey, ARE….MORONS. The IDIOTS that STILL BELIEVE in Captain Fuktard…..ARE MORONS. Obama IS A MARXIST. Obama BELIEVES that SH!TTING all over CAPITALISM……..WORKS.
    Obama is a complete and UTTER ….LOSER. To not RECOGNIZE THAT. Is TREASONOUS.
    Obama is a piece of sh1T

    You call it a prophecy, I call it a spoiler.

  • yourmaster

    He a one termer now.

    ….easing regulations will not get the jobs created.
    the GOP has the perfect setting to use on 0bama… He demonized the wealthy, not once… not twice… but 6 times! you don’t demonize or anger… the people you want to create the jobs in our nation. ….This is why the August jobs report is 0% jobs created. by threatening them to pay higher taxes and push them under more regulations – he’s screwed himself and the economy. ….Businesses will not hire while he remains in office: a threat to their prosperity.

    he had a supermajority of democrats the first 2 yrs of office
    (they ignored the economy)
    Liberalism is failure… He can’t grow government or press the liberal agenda
    of higher taxes, bigger government/nanny state, or more and more business regulations

    … will kill the economy….

    if his jobs plan has: tax the fucking rich in it….
    ……he can kiss his ass goodbye….

    0bama is maybe having an epiphiny….
    ….he has to choose between either his liberalist agenda which isn’t working
    and will ruin the nation… or the economy.

    he should of eased regulations 3 yrs ago….
    and we would of been out of the recession with more jobs created
    …..but he demonized business too much…. and now he will pay the price for it in 2012

  • Txn4ever is correct – this is by design

    Charles is correct on this though…

    the regime has zero honesty, zero integrity, zero morality, zero empathy, zero common sense and I could go on and on

    REMEMBER TO be engaged, aware – vet and VOTE ALL THE BASTARDS OUT Nov 2012

  • jerrylud

    yep even his buddy van jones said if you want to change a country you destroy it and start over and make it the way you want not in those exact words but thats the gist of it its all on purpose

  • MrGoodWench

    “Obama Is President Zero – zero economic expansion, zero jobs, zero ideas on how to cure the economy.”
    He is a muslim anti-American anti-semite hardcore marxist , of suspicious pedigree .
    Thats all he is, thats all he will always be.
    We knew that 4 years ago.
    And we were right.

  • Andrew X

    Obama is well and truly screwed, no two ways about it. The fact is, everything that has already happened has…. already happened. Meaning it is all around his neck like an albatross. The business community in general are the only people who can start to heal the economy, and Obama has so utterly screwed and attacked them that there is no way, shape or form that they will trust him. Ergo, they will shrug en masse, and pray for a deliverer in 2012. Ditto the Republicans. The very speech date dance that Barone discusses is in fact very significant. There is only one possible reason for the original date, that is so Obama could say “Ha ha, I’m President and you’re not…. giggle giggle”. Then it blew up for the simplest of reasons. It was not only a total punk move, but a blitheringly incompetent one to boot. So Republicans are given reason #6,412 not to trust this guy… at all.

    Here’s something to watch for: There is scuttlebut that he will on say Thursday, among other things, that “We will have other plans in mind that we will be rolling out over the next few weeks/months….” Look for a reaction to that to be explosive, and poll-killing. “Other Plans”?!?! Are you kidding ? There are only two possibilities for not telling us now – He either still has not come up with them, after three years, a bazillion rounds of golf, a nice chill in Martha’s Vinyard, etc etc….. or he has them ready, but they are big secret plans we unwashed are not privvy to. That’s it, one of the two. There is nothing else. Which of those two will go over better with an angry and scared American public desperate for a leadership we can have confidence in?

    If we hear that, look for his polls to drop another three points, and one wonders if there really is a ‘Game Over’ point out there that is not too far away.

  • SSBN 627(B)

    Of course it’s a campaign speech. EVERYTHING this man does is campaign-oriented. Obama is first, last, and foremost nothing more than a street-common rabble-rouser; a pure communist agitator who has risen far far above his natural station in life. In a former era he would never have gotten past horribly common art or handing out Free Cuba pamphlets.

    But he does have excellent diction. I would dearly love to see percentages in the following two categories: People mag subscribers and American Idol viewers.

    When taxes come down for the middle class jobs will be created in order to provide the additional product and services that are required to meet the additional demand caused by the spendable income provided by the reduction in taxes. In my lifetime, only Ronald Reagan understood this.

    Businesses (small, medium or large) hire additional employees only when production necessitates.

    It seems that educfation makes idiots out of people. Especially politicians, pundits and media people.

  • a former dem

    Well, sometimes elitist Krauthmahemmer gets it absolutely correct, Barry is a zero, a marxist,

    Barry has put a chokehold on american businesses of every size, and then can’t figure out why they can’t breath, expand, etc.

    I know a small bus. owner, and they keep saying they’r hunkering down, and from their view, they will be laying off people, or making them part time next year, especially if the winter sales are awful, and of course they will be. This Barry-depression is only going to get worse, MUCH worse.

  • baseballguy

    Stopping the economy is a feature not a bug to these idjits. Normally it can recover from deomcrap policies and they say see, no problem. This is the third instance where they went a policy too far – FDR, the peanut man and this bozo have proven that there is a line which cannot be crossed.

  • RedBeard

    Krauthammer probably went as far as he dared, speaking in public. But privately, he must be thinking that Cloward-Piven is operational and deployed.

  • jorgen

    We all know that he is ‘President Zero’ – I am more surprised that Krauthammer can see that.

  • big L

    cya from Dr K. Thanks for scuttling Palin, Krauty. You had your chance. REtire. No one is listening to you, relatively speaking. KMA.


    odumbass is doing exactly what he set out to do…destroy this country…as a mooslum this is his goal along with all the muhanimals that believe in our destruction…

  • vityas

    I agree it’s by design.
    Does it matter how this is explained to the voters who are not like us, who are not informed, who do not follow every (fill in the blank) thing 0 says?
    As long as we vote him out, we have a chance to repair the damage.
    To let people think/imagine/delude themselves that he isn’t doing this on purpose, isn’t as important as convincing everyone destruction is proceeding apace and must be stopped.

  • Scott

    As Ben Franklins said, “a small leak can sink a mighty ship.” Every year we send hundreds of billions of dollars out of this country to oil exporting despots…Not such a small leak. We are impoverishing this nation with oil imports…Hussein’s declaration of war against energy production has hastened our decline. Remember, we elected the man who said, “energy prices will necessarily skyrocket.”

  • Charles

    While “President Zero” certainly has a nice ring to it, it still gives The Fool too much credit…

    “He doesn’t understand that his administration has stopped the economy in it’s tracks.” Yes, he does understand that! Mission accomplished! You talking heads need to be telling the public this. But, good luck, it’s football season. You have access to all of the past Marxist publications outlining their strategies. This is not a secret conspiracy, it’s a published strategy that all of you choose to ignore. An integral part of it is destroying the middle class. We are watching them do it and you have your heads up your butts.

  • FreakyBoy

    Damn space hippies!

    (old, but still funny in the “O” context)

  • Scott

    He’s less than zero Charles…Not only do his policies do nothing for job creation, they destroy jobs instead…His secret war on domestic energy production killed hundreds of thousand of high paying jobs in oil, coal, nuclear, and refining…As well, his ridiculous approach to CAFE standards has created a headwind for the auto industry that will last for decades. You can’t add multiples to gas mileage without billions upon billions spent on engineering, research and development. Of course, these costs will be passed on to consumers. Witness the 40K Chevy Volt being sold in near single digits…Obama will prove to be a very very expensive mistake for this nation….

  • alfromchgo

    He understands completely, everything going according to the outline…

  • Ginger

    Any one watching Fox? Left the room to get a cup of coffee came back and they were talking about a Anti-Perry Tea Party Rally. Did I hear that right?

  • Marie

    Obama is a SCoaMF.

  • Ginger

    It really ticks me off when the media uses the excuse of what the kenyan muslim and his muslim buddies are doing to take over our country and
    “fundamentally transform” our country to sharia law. They keep saying he does not know what he is doing. blah, blah ….OH YES HE DOES! Every thing is planned.

    We need to get busy and put up billboards all over asking people if they know what sharia law is and it is here now taking over with the kenyan frauds help and we need them to help save America.

    Maybe Facebook and the other forms of public communication! Let us pay for ads in our local newspapers! WE have to inform the uninformed! Tell these fathers if sharia law takes over in our country their daughters and sons will be raped, beaten and killed and if he is still alive he will not be able to protect them alive or dead!

  • Crackermike

    In 1972, I sat in on a student Communist Party meeting at a large State University. Their strategy was and is to destroy all essential American structures: clergy, police, schools, military, business etc and replace them with the “New Socialist Norm”. Obama is following the plan. He, and the progressives, are destroying the USA. As more people finally come to this horrible realization, they will resist Obama more strongly. It’s a huge intellectual leap to recognize our President is actively destroying the Country. He will face, after his term, popular calls for punishment and imprisonment.

  • Charles could only mean this about two people, Barrak Obama or Justin Beiber….

  • StrangernFiction

    “He doesn’t understand that his administration has stopped the economy in its tracks.”

    Whether or not he understands is irrelevant. HE DOESN’T CARE! His/their goal is not to promote the greater good. Obama and the ‘rats are not persons of character, they are the exact opposite. This is SO OBVIOUS and yet a brilliant analyst like Charles STILL DOESN’T GET IT (or perhaps he does, but is too gutless to tell us). Pathetic, truly pathetic.

  • StrangernFiction

    Correction, Obama and the libturds/statists/proggs/totalitarians/tyrants.

  • StrangernFiction

    I agree it’s by design.
    Does it matter how this is explained to the voters who are not like us, who are not informed, who do not follow every (fill in the blank) thing 0 says?

    Of course it matters, it is the truth.

  • Ginger


    I see people like Krauthammer as a coward for NOT telling it like it is! I no longer have any respect for that man’s opinion and others like him! They all know what is going on and if they are not part of “the plan” and they choose to twist their words and not say it like it is they are COWARDS to America!

  • MaryW


    Let me add to your list the traditional family/marriage, one of the key structures of a society.

  • StrangernFiction


    I suspect you are right. Surely the brilliant Dr. Krauthammer understands that evil exists and can spot it with the best of them. So he is just another coward, just like many of the R’s that will attend the ‘rat pep rally on Thursday.

  • aprilnovember811

    Obama is a 0 person. He’s a dangerous sociopath. They leave ruin wherever they go. Ted Bundy and Jim Jones of The Peoples Temple come to mind. There is a mentally ill man as the leader of the free world. If we had more men of character in positions that would take action to remove him, the country would be able to recover from this.

  • Katie

    Krauthammer is really hammering away at Obama, isn’t he? More power to him.
    But are we sure he has no plan and no clue?

    I’ve always considered his plan might be to push this country to destruction. I think initially it might have been to do just that as part of fundamentally transforming America. For the first two years he was well on his way. Fortunately 2010 slowed him down.

    If he adopts any moderate, or what can be viewed as shifting to the right tact, it would be to stall and buy time, hopefully garnering enough votes to land him in the WH for another 4 years. And even more hopefully land enough Dems in Congress to give him an easier go. I’m afraid, even if he loses the popular vote, places with high electoral votes (California comes to mind), might still push him in.

    These periodic shifts he makes are always short lived. In his rigidity he can’t seem to hold it long enough to play that hand, and reverts in short time (thankfully). Usually after a trip to get some of his mojo back. It must leave a tremendously bad taste in his mouth.

    It’s probably better, politically speaking, to say he’s clueless rather than out and out destructive. Regardless, the sooner he’s out, the better. For everyone.

  • SeniorD

    No doubt the sinking of the American economy has been planned.

    Just not planned by the inept and intellectually challenged Puppet President. Only the Trust Fund Socialist Terrorists have the intellectual power, the connections and the Marxist Will to make this collapse happen. President Stalking Horse is simply their cover and expendable target.

  • Robert

    Zero ideas. Including coming from Republican and/or Tea Party politicians in Washington.

    It is as if these people get elected and then get on a merry-go-round from which there is no escape. I have been away more lately, but have heard no proposals from any conservative in Washington. We are living in a vacuum of both ideas and political courage.

    With government spending increasing by more than 1/3 just in the last 3 years, there should be no shortage of proposals to cut spending.

  • Joanne

    Obama understands perfectly well that he has stopped job creation in its tracks, because it is exactly as he planned it. Just think of what he has done – regulations on coal industry, shut down off-shore oil drilling in gulf, gave billions to foreign countries to drill for oil for America to buy, and on and on and on. The guy wants to destroy America to its bare bones.

  • Joanne

    Obama is doing nothing to create jobs because it is the greatest diversion from what he is doing behind everyone’s backs. All you hear about is the lack of jobs, and Obama doesn’t do a single thing because he has an agenda that he wants off the radar and he is accomplishing all of his goals.

  • “Obama Is President Zero – zero economic expansion, zero jobs, zero ideas on how to cure the economy.”

    What a racist comment! Krauthammer is just saying that because Obama is black!

    (Just beating the leftists to it – you know that’s what’s coming…)

  • All kidding aside, everything is going according to plan. The American voter, unfortunately, has a very short memory. If Obama spends 3 years dismantling and destroying America, but in his last year manages to create jobs and measurably improve the economy at all – even from the abysmal low he caused – he’ll gain many votes for his re-election.

    Hopefully, it won’t be enough to get him back into office.

    It looks like Charles is the real Zero, and are the re tarded brain-dead racists on this website.
    Since The Recovery Act Took Effect, The Private Sector Has Gained 1.2 Million Net Jobs

    Since June 2009, The Private Sector Has Gained Over One Million Net Jobs. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, there were 107,936,000 private-sector jobs in June 2009. As of July 2011, the most recent report available, the data show that total is up to 109,156,000 – a net gain of 1,220,000 jobs in the private sector. [, accessed 8/14/11]

    But facts don’t mean anything as long as you can blame the black man. I didn’t believe it, but slowly I’m believing those Academics you said the tea party are racist and stupid!
