***Amen, Charles Krauthammer:
On Thursday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist and conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer criticized the White House after announcing it would be holding a “National Women’s Issues Conference” on April 27-28 in Washington, D.C.
According to Krauthammer, White House spokesman Jay Carney’s response to a question about conference posed by Fox News Channel’s White House correspondent, Ed Henry, was “shameless and over-the-top.”
“According to Jay Carney, it has nothing at all to do with the election,” Krauthammer said. “They actually think they can say that and do it with a straight face and get away with it. I mean, all the administrations use taxpayer money to promote themselves in an election year. But this is pretty shameless and over-the-top.”
He said that this conference stemmed from the recent contraception debate that was given birth by the media.
“Notice how when the president said, ‘This is about a wide range of issues. It isn’t just about’ — and what’s the one thing he named immediately? Contraception. Of course it is about contraception,” Krauthammer said. “It’s because of the way it was handled and the media covered it — it became all of a sudden a war on the women, which is a complete invention.”
