George Will: Other Than Nixon 'Has There Ever Been a Worse First Year of a Second Term?'

GEORGE WILL: Well, it’s one thing for Bill Clinton to say, “I feel your pain.” It’s another thing for Barack Obama to say, “I feel your pain that I have caused,” and for him to say it was caused by a “situation.” That’s the word he used in the operative sentence.

That’s a little bit less than the 60 percent disapproval on immigration and 65 percent on the economy. And now the Democrats are going to get to vote on some things, maybe, or at least Mr. Reid will have to stop them in the Senate. Here’s, for example, the “If You Like Your Health Plan You Can Keep It Act” from Senator Ron Johnson.
