Krauthammer on Obama's Polls Claim: He's 'Keeping the Truth at Arm's Length'

On Friday's "Special Report" on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer critiques President Barack Obama's performance in an earlier press conference, which he gave a less than favorable review:

"He looked tired, he looked exhausted, he looked like a guy that had a bad year," Krauthammer said. "I don't think he had a lot to say. It looks like he really wanted to get out of town but he didn't want to leave without facing the press or there would have been stories about he's kind of escaping, he's kind of unwilling or afraid to face the press. He didn't want a headline saying he slinks out of town. But there wasn't a lot of substance that came out of it, and he simply said, as we heard there, he's not a man that follows the polls."

"I think I would add that to a long list of keeping the truth at arm's length," he continued. "He's a president who is obsessed with polls and has ridden them to very high office and he knows he's in deep trouble. And he knows that he's lashed to the mast of Obamacare, which is a reason that it isn't like other times in his career when he had freedom of action. He doesn't hear because he's hostage to fate of his own piece of legislation."
