Obama's recent accomplishments
This is George Will
at his best. He combines a few paragraphs on the indiscernible accomplishment of Copenhagen (which Obama, in his attempt at "self celebration", calls "unprecendented") and a few on the health care bill passing the Senate. While the latter doesn't solve the problem of the uninsured or the rise in health care spending, but the legislation does, says Will, "solve the Democrats' 'problem' of figuring out how
to worsen the dependency culture and the entitlement mentality that
grows with it." His condemnation of Reid and Nelson is a work of art. I predict that the Nebraska gambit will be followed by an impressive backlash against Democratic candidates nationwide. And, by way of a preview of the 2010 elections, note this Washington Post
story on four vulnerable Dem Cong seats in Virginia.
