Krauthammer: Romney "Needs To Be Tougher" On "Utterly Shameless" Obama
"These attacks are utterly shameless," syndicated columnist and FOX News contributor Charles Krauthammer said about the Obama campaign accusing Mitt Romney of felonious behavior. "You began with the outsourcing charge which as Kirsten was saying, was shown by neutral observers to be false. If there was any it happened after Romney left, which is why we now start with the second charge that he never left in 1999. There is not a shred of evidence that Romney participated in any decision, any investment, any phone call, any meeting of any kind after 1999. So that is the second shamelessly false charge and the Obama administration knows that."
"I think what Romney has to do -- it's okay to do what he did today to try to rebut them, but I think he needs to be much tougher on them," Krauthammer advised. "I think they ought to stress the fact that these are lies and repeat that. Demand the apologize for the felony charge, which they're never going to get but you want to stress that. And also, continue to attack Obama on the same grounds and say that the stimulus money he gave was spread all over the world, created jobs in England, Finland, China, and elsewhere."
"If you want to speak about outsourcing, Obama did worse. He took your money that you pay in taxes and he spread it around to create jobs abroad. And change the subject. Obama right now is being -- his administration is gutting one of the great achievements of the late 1990s, the agreement between the Republicans and Clinton to reform welfare. And they are now gutting it lawlessly, unilaterally in a way that -- that is an issue that is popular one. They ought to be attacking on this. Change the subject. It is out there, no way the administration will be able to defend itself on that. So start on another front. I think unless they are aggressive on this, they're going to get really hurt," Krauthammer said on the panel portion of FOX News' "Special Report."
