A brilliant stylist known for an uncompromising honesty that challenges conventional wisdom at every turn, Krauthammer has for decades dazzled readers with his keen insight into politics and government. His weekly column is a must-read in Washington and across the country. Now, finally, the best of Krauthammer's intelligence, erudition, and wit are collected in one volume.
"Charles K, author and narrator ..... enuf said"
In these five new essays, Krauthammer offers a critique of the Obama administration: its failed and ambivalent foreign policy, the lawlessness of its rule by executive order, and an air of detachment that has turned this into "an observer presidency".
Only amid the most bizarre, most tawdry, most addictive election campaign in memory could the real story of 2016 be so effectively obliterated, namely, that with just four months left in the Obama presidency, its two central pillars are collapsing before our eyes: domestically, its radical reform of American health care, a.k.a. Obamacare; and abroad, its radical reorientation of American foreign policy — disengagement marked by diplomacy and multilateralism.
"Space: The visionaries Take Over" is from the Ideas and Controversy section of The Washington Post. It was written by Charles Krauthammer and narrated by Jill Melancon.
