Krauthammer: The vacant presidency raises worries

WASHINGTON - The president's demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached.

Krauthammer: No-brainer on border kids; they can’t stay

WASHINGTON - As is his wont, Barack President Obama is treating the border crisis - more than 50,000 unaccompanied children crossing illegally - as a public relations problem. Where to photo op and where not. He still hasn't enunciated a policy. He may not even have one.

Krauthammer: Obama's government by fiat and overreach

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court this week admonished the Environmental Protection Agency for overreaching in regulating greenhouse gases. The Clean Air Act covers polluters that emit 250 tons per year (or in some cases, 100 tons). This standard makes no sense if applied to greenhouse gases. Thousands of establishments from elementary schools to grocery stores would be, absurdly, covered. So the EPA arbitrarily chose 100,000 tons as the carbon dioxide threshold.

Krauthammer: US pays a hefty price for abdication in Iraq

Krauthammer: American-style revenge more hot than cold

Krauthammer: An empty address at West Point

WASHINGTON - It is fitting that the day before President Barack Obama gives his grand West Point address defending the wisdom and prudence of his foreign policy, his government should be urging Americans to evacuate Libya.

Krauthammer: So who made the pivot to Asia? Putin

Krauthammer: How to do the Benghazi hearings right

WASHINGTON - The Democrats are portraying the not-yet-even constituted House Select Committee on Benghazi as nothing but a partisan exercise. They are even considering boycotting the hearings to delegitimize them.

Krauthammer: Obama runs a self-delusional foreign policy

WASHINGTON - Barack Obama's 949-word response on Monday to a question about foreign policy weakness showed the president at his worst: defensive, irritable, contradictory and at times detached from reality.

Krauthammer: Court finally gets it right on racial preference

WASHINGTON - Every once in a while a great, conflicted country gets an insoluble problem exactly right. Such is the Supreme Court's ruling this week on affirmative action. It upheld a Michigan referendum prohibiting the state from discriminating either for or against any citizen on the basis of race.

Krauthammer: Real civil war has Dems out to reclaim middle class

Old habits die hard. The media are so enamored of the continuing (and largely contrived) story about the great Republican civil war that they fail to appreciate that the real internecine fight is being waged on the other side of the aisle.
