Democratic support of Obamacare is a "pretense" that will change next summer, at which time they'll "run for their lives," syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer said Thursday.

"[Support] is a pretense they're going to have to maintain, probably until midsummer, at which point everybody is going to run for their lives. And the Democrats, individually in their races, are going to run away from this as hard as they can," Krauthammer told "Fox & Friends."

Democrats will have no choice but to watch as Obamacare unfolds. Those facing re-election could call for changes to the healthcare law sometime next year, Krauthammer predicted.

"The Democrats are going to have to watch this without any recourse unless they decide they're going to jump ship. And I think that by mid-year, it's likely that some of the vulnerable Democrats in the Senate are going to move for a delay or even a repeal," he said.

Democrats facing midterm elections in 2014 are increasingly viewed as vulnerable, due to the problems facing Americans from Obamacare. Passed on a purely partisan vote, Krauthammer said Democrats "decided in 2009 and 2010 for a huge experiment on one-sixth of the American economy."

Krauthammer maintained Democrats used the issue of people without healthcare insurance to "revolutionize all of American medicine." Now that Obamacare has been implemented, it is "not stoppable, in the absence of repeal," he said.
