Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said on “Special Report” Tuesday that President Obama’s latest actions show that Obama is acting the way he wished he always could have throughout his presidency. Krauthammer told host Bret Baier that Obama is “a man who can now act the way he believes.”

The conservative commentator also told Baier that Obama is “the most leftist American president” in 100 years, while adding that the president is finally acting “the way he really is.”

KRAUTHAMMER: I think this entire analysis of Obama is completely wrong, the idea that he’s edging over here, he’s maneuvering. The guy is unleashed. He’s into the fourth quarter, he’s never running again. The reason he’s doing X, Y or Z is not because he needs the greens or he’s working his way to the left or the right. He doesn’t need anybody. This is Obama the way he really is. I have argued for six years, this is a man of the left, he’s always been the most leftist American president in at least a century. But in the years in which he was still running again, in which he still got Congress he needed to reelect, he maneuvered, he dissimulated and he disguised it. He doesn’t disguise anything now. Cuba he does, he gets nothing in return. Enrages many people in his own party, he doesn’t care. Keystone is open and shut. It’s 70 percent of the American people. The majority of the Senate, a supermajority of the Senate, a lot of Democrats. He doesn’t care. This is a man who can now act the way he believes and he’s doing it.

BAIER: So all this talk about cooperation, about getting things done, about moving the fence, you think it’s all garbage?

KRAUTHAMMER: It’s all garbage.
