Krauthammer: ‘Devastating’ Had a Republican Delivered Hillary’s Speech
"It was an entire six months accumulation of opposition research, hence one of the Republican challengers, to trump in their nomination, delivered it. I think it would have had tremendous effect. The problem is, and I think she ticked off the major issues with trump on foreign policy. Namely lack of knowledge and preparation, lack of policy and strategy. And in the end temperament. And his sort of strange admiration for strong men like Putin and the Chinese leadership. The problem is, she delivers it. You’re looking at her and you think this is, this is the worst person that Democrats could have chosen to deliver the message. Because you look at her and you think Benghazi. Russia reset the disasters withdrawal from Iraq and she ends up, what’s her positive? Defending the Iran deal. So — I think that trump did exactly the right response, which is not to defend himself on the charges. I think just about all of them were direct quotations or fairly reasonable facsimiles of what he said. But to go after her for who she is and the mistakes she made, there’s a campaign, particularly on foreign affairs that is going to be incredibly negative. And it’s going to go all the way to the bottom."
