Continuing now their coverage of the democratic conventions is safe bet to say the national media will be kinder to the Democrats that -- of the Republicans last week in Tampa.
-- Charles Krauthammer to monitor the national coverage of the Tampa convention.
Also some thoughts in my talking points memo.
Charles joins us now from Washington are so again you know I you're you're pretty good it did get hot shot and then telling everybody what a -- -- and I am.
Where I go wrong and -- Points.
It pains me to say they spent.
This time you've stumbled know you've staggered onto the truth can't get look I mean there's there's the business about -- complete.
Three fusion of the presidency I don't know it was over the Harvard Law School but at the medical school side if you got an incomplete.
-- graduate you can get your -- -- in practice but forget about Harvard Obama by his own standard.
He said in an interview very early in his presidency.
That if he didn't have this thing -- by three years.
He was a one term deal.
And they might this is there one time where I agree with Obama -- -- let it play -- the Charles -- go to Harvard Medical School.
Number do I respected president for saying.
I give myself an incomplete at that there was an honest statement it's gonna be used against him.
But he was being honest and it was also being -- by Sammy didn't fix the economy.
In three and a half years he's out of there -- on any beef with the president on any of that stuff.
Well look I give him credit for honesty and didn't have any other answer.
Could a lot of -- this and I'm not calling the vice president a liar I'm not.
But you just heard Joseph Biden saying hey you're better off than -- or four years ago and you know exactly.
People don't walk my dog do you live in America are you remember a department that's who I know Joseph is a laughing stock and Obama is still taken seriously.
Okay he's an honest guy now.
Charles Dow and in Tampa.
And -- actually hung out with him for about ten minutes in this in the big newsroom -- had there and then he asked -- leave.
But I asked him before he he had to -- remove me.
Two if there was any room for the theory goes that it's kids got into one minutes later you could see people just yet it was nowhere left the new rule that we're losing basically.
Exactly so I asked him to go over -- we prayer I asked Krauthammer over the weekend.
To look at the coverage on on the national media network is -- that.
To see what kind of shots they took.
After the fact of the Republican Convention would -- it.
I saw one.
And sort of general consensus.
Emerging -- on the mainstream media.
That Republicans had lied continuously.
In -- speech Tuesday particularly centered on Paul Ryan.
To the point where.
They do that they were calling it almost unanimously this is on all -- and that's.
They were kind of a truth free zone and what it is lie about what was.
This is what's so amazing -- they don't even pretend to be.
They said number one that deal about taking 700.
Billion out of Medicare.
And spending -- on Obama -- that is absolutely.
Completely true and they -- -- Ryan did the same thing Ryan did not do the same thing he took the money out he'd made the cuts in Medicare.
But he use that money.
To go into the Medicare trust fund so will be used for the future.
It's as if you were saving money on your child's education by sending him to public school is that a private school.
So you can save the money for college Obama did did the same thing but he didn't say that money for college he bought a jaguar.
That's the difference between what Obama did on that I do -- -- Because the issue is kind of complicated do you think the mainstream media's national media simply -- -- understand the issue in his buys a democratic talking points when you spit them out.
Or are they doing this consciously.
I think when you get to a complicated issue.
They're so used to and they live in the but the bubble of liberalism.
That's the air they breathe right that they find it easier to accepted -- -- actually go into the weeds as we do on Fox News.
Jim Angle a lot of the people on special report on your show other shows go into the weeds and show that this that isn't true and they did the same on welfare.
What the Obama administration.
It is absolutely undermines.
The central work requirement in welfare which was the triumph.
The 86 reform that it made inviolable.
The requirement of work first and what Obama -- -- in the HHS regulation.
Is to make that subject.
To the whims.
And the waivers.
The secretary of HHS.
Which was never intended in the law and is completely contrary.
To what the original -- fail which meant to do signed by Clinton in 1990.
Six -- and finally I don't know -- -- saw this but they had a tribute to Ted Kennedy just a few minutes ago.
Mom and I was startled because they used a dead guy.
Kennedy to attack Mitt Romney.
Instead of the listing all Kennedy's achievements they had a big portion of Kennedy debating Romney and basically calling him an idiot.
Kennedy collar -- -- -- when they were running has given the senate so the democratic -- -- dead guy could have attacked Romney I went into that good taste.
Know you've got an issue of -- it but you also have a trend.
You've got Obama -- depending on Clinton to endorse him.
You've got these ads were Clinton looks at the camera.
And says I had a good economy Obama's got the same ideas support him.
Obama has been in office for a full term and he's running on the Clinton economy.
He's riding on the Kennedy attacks he's running on nostalgia -- the fast.
And he has the audacity.
As he did over the weekend about saying that Romney is a man of the past and over the last century.
Charles Krauthammer who want -- well up.
