Columnist Charles Krauthammer argued that President Obama’s criticism of the media and Fox News shows that “his arrogance knows no limits” on Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
Krauthammer said, “Well, he’s letting us know that his arrogance knows no limits. Of course he wants a change in coverage, particularly of the coverage of himself. After all, he was considered a Greek god in 2008, and right now people actually are judging him on the merits. He doesn’t like that. He has the arrogance to say not only that the media have to change, but he also said, within one day John Boehner has to change. Mitch McConnell has to change. The media have to change. Elizabeth Warren has to change. There’s only one person on the firmament who doesn’t have to change, and that’s Barack Obama because he has achieved Olympian greatness, omniscience. And given his record, having left a shambles of foreign policy, the worst recovery since the Second World War, he seems impervious to empirical evidence. The same view he had of himself upon attaining the presidency he has today. And he is shocked, shocked that the media won’t bend a knee to him as they did in unison in 2008.”
