Columnist Charles Krauthammer argued that “maybe [the GOP] ought to look for another country” if it fails to win the Senate on Tuesday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel.
“This really is a Republican tide. I think the chances are very good, maybe 70%, that Republicans re-take the Senate and for good reason. The reason is that this is essentially a referendum on Obama…if the GOP can’t win back the Senate in a climate like this, maybe the party ought to look for another country” he stated.
Krauthammer also discussed the GOP’s prospects in 2016, saying “the only thing they need to do, and the most important thing they need to do is to show the country in the next two years if they control the two houses of Congress that they have a governing agenda. Right now they are the party of no, which is all you can be if you control only one house. Everything the House has passed ends up inside and under the desk of Harry Reid. If Republicans retake the senate and the only reason to retake the Senate is to enact the agenda that would come out of the House into the Senate and then confront Obama with a veto threat, sharpen the differences, show the country you’re not the party of no.”
He also slammed Hillary Clinton, declaring “she is an infinitely worse candidate than Democrats imagine. Look, she was a shoo-in ’08, she lost to an unknown…she’s a lousy candidate. She doesn’t have a real agenda.”
