Seattle Times letters to the editor

Obama hammered

Haughty columnist only finds fault

As I was reading Charles Krauthammer’s comments [“Behold the great transcender,” syndicated columnist, June 13], I was left wondering why we have to continuously read his hateful, condescending, despising, lording and sarcastic writing about our president. Never has he ever found any positives since day one. I quote him as saying that President Obama “hovers above … country and history,” and yet it is Krauthammer who loves to hover over everything the president does and says.

Do not let the president’s smiling, bowing and “finding fault” with his own country fool you. Only a self assuredly tough individual does that. People like Krauthammer have taken him as a pushover in the past … and have been unpleasantly surprised.

Krauthammer’s writings have a haughtiness that is pretty blinding to some of us who are aware of how difficult it must be to fix this broken country of ours.

What about running for office and fixing these many problems for us, Krauthammer? Nothing to it, right?
