After Jimmy Hoffa remarks, Charles Krauthammer condemns ‘cosmic hypocrisy’ of Democrats

(By Jeff Poor, The Daily Caller) - Teamsters President James Hoffa isn’t backing down from his Labor Day stemwinder, and few on the left are calling on him to do so. Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer says there’s a lesson in that.

On Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Krauthammer said the lack of a backlash was the latest evidence of hypocrisy from President Obama’s party.

“The real story is [the] cosmic hypocrisy of the Democrats,” Krauthammer said. “We had the shooting in Tucson all of a sudden that was obviously the act of a psychotic mad man … and yet for four days there was unrelenting vitriol from the left — some elected representatives, some commentators, columnists, about how this was caused by the, the, somehow, the climate.”
