Krauthammer: With This Administration, I Don't Buy Anything They Are Telling Me

Krauthammer: With This Administration, I Don't Buy Anything They Are Telling Me

A $250M cut in border patrol because of sequestration? Charles hits the administration calling this another political stunt (like suspending White House tours). Fred Barnes calls it a "stunt" here also.

KRAUTHAMMER: No, but I'm skeptical about the motive. As if there isn't anywhere else on the budget of this huge department that is constructing headquarters for years and years now, where I'm sure a lot of money ends up in the concrete. You know, this is a stunt that is not going to work. It's obvious that the administration is in every department trying to find the one neuralgic area that will affect the public [in] the worst way and the symbol of that is the White House tours. But that just isn't working, because that became so obvious that everybody understands.

Can you imagine how much waste is in that huge department that is remaining untouched? And don't tell me that the money is unshiftable. The Republicans have offered to give the administration the power to move the money around. Obama has said he not only won't do it but he would veto a bill that allowed him to shift the money around. This is clearly a stunt to get people to hurt at the receiving end of services, like the border patrol, like White House tours and to blame it on Republicans. It's not going to work.

KRAUTHAMMER: Even if all of that is true, I think hanging up a sign all across the border saying that 'During happy hour on Wednesdays and Thursdays there will be nobody at the border,' might actually contribute a somewhat of an up-tick in infiltration.

CHUCK LANE: People who organize these trips across the border already know when it's defended or not.

KRAUTHAMMER: But now we're doubling, we're increasing that time, and that is going to make a difference. Look, the problem is it's not as if it's going to reduce the numbers, the issue is why was this required in the first place? It's purely a matter of partisanship. You call me skeptical, that's inadequate. I'm cynical. I'm so cynical that I make Diogenes look credulous. With this administration, I don't buy anything they're telling me. When they reopen the White House so little Iowa tots can go on their visit, I'll begin believing in them again.

It is as though the devil himself is in our WH.

Everything obama does is designed to weaken America and empower himself. He doesn't care how much damage and social chaos he causes. In fact he seems to revel in it. He is so happy he may just take another expensive vacation just to snub us patriots.
