Krauthammer: Pelosi Challenge ‘Sort of a Ricochet Shot’ At Obama, She ‘Followed Him Over the Cliff’

On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” columnist Charles Krauthammer stated that Representative Tim Ryan’s (D-OH) challenge to House Minority Leader Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is “sort of a ricochet shot of getting at Obama without attacking him, but bringing down and changing the people who followed him over the cliff.”

Krauthammer said, “Look, you look at the Democrats in the Senate, and it’s the classic accusation. The Senate part is led by a New Yorker. Nancy Pelosi is from San Francisco. The median — the average income in her constituency is twice what it is in Tim Ryan’s. He represents industrial Ohio. She represents limousine liberalism. And they’re — it’s beginning to dawn on them that if you keep saying that global warming is the biggest problem for our country, for our century, while people are losing their jobs and their dignity in the midwest, you are not appealing to people.”

He added, “Now, I think it starts — and there’s a large part of this that is to be laid at the feet of Barack Obama. I thought his kind of liberalism was a huge overreach with Obamacare and all the other regulations, but the House went along with it, and the Senate went along with it. Democrats, I’m talking about, protected him and made the same case. This is, I think, sort of a ricochet shot of getting at Obama without attacking him, but bringing down and changing the people who followed him over the cliff.”
