Laura Ingraham hosted Charles Krauthammer, author of Things That Matter.
Krauthammer said the GOP is being hurt by the government shutdown, but the debt ceiling could be fatal for President Obama. He said the conservatives have to look at what they can achieve with the debt ceiling. He said there will be no repeal or delay on Obamacare, but feels entitlement reform as in the proposal by Rep. Paul Ryan and some tweaks in the sequester cuts.
Krauthammer conceded that people were excited about Senator Cruz's filibuster, but that he had no strategy for defunding Obamacare.
Krauthammer thinks Obama brought in top conservative pundits because his back is against the wall and he's trying to find a way out. He said it's important to get an idea of what Obama's thinking is.
