How can you not admire Charles Krauthammer?

I like to write and have been told through my academic career that I do so rather well. Let there be no illusion however that I come close to Mr. Krauthammer. Today's column is as usual, insightful, well crafted and informative.

What happened to President Obama? His wax wings having melted, he is the man who fell to earth. What happened to bring his popularity down further than that of any new president in polling history save Gerald Ford (post-Nixon pardon)?

The conventional wisdom is that Obama made a tactical mistake by farming out his agenda to Congress and allowing himself to be pulled left by the doctrinaire liberals of the Democratic congressional leadership. But the idea of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi pulling Obama left is quite ridiculous. Where do you think he came from, this friend of Chávista ex-terrorist William Ayers, of PLO apologist Rashid Khalidi, of racialist inciter Jeremiah Wright?

Go to the link and read the rest. He is one of my favorite political writers.
