wsj: obama agonistes -- year one of obama's reign has been a bit of a disaster

jan 18th, 2010

a win by the republican in the senate race in massachusetts (ironically to replace democratic giant ted kennedy) would jeopardize obamacare, the health care program that has been obama's only major policy success so far. then Year 1 in OE (obama era) would have been essentially a complete failure.


Twelve months later, Mr. Obama's approval rating has fallen further and faster than any recent President's, Congress is despised, the public mood has shifted sharply to the right on the role of government, and a Republican could pick up a Senate seat in a state with no GOP Members of Congress and that Mr. Obama carried by 26 points.
