Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer on Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier – Tuesday, October 27, 2009:

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I want to point out one thing about what Obama had said when he talked about the long years of drift. There is something truly disgusting about the way he can not refrain from attacking Bush when he’s being defensive about himself. I mean, its beyond disgraceful here. He is – he won election a year ago. He became commander and chief two months later. He announced his own strategy, not the Bush strategy, his strategy six months ago, and it wasn’t offhand and it was a major address with the secretary of defense and the secretary of state with him. And now he’s still talking about the drift in the Bush years.

What’s happening today is not the result of the drift so-called of the Bush years, it is because of the drift in his years. It is because of the flaws in his own strategy, which he is now reexamining. He has every right as commander and chief to reexamine his own strategy. But he ought to be honest, forthright, and courageous enough as a president to simply say, “I’m rethinking the strategy I got with six months ago,” and not once again childlike attack his predecessor.
