WITH, QUITE POSSIBLY, MORE AMERICAN CASUALTIES BEFORE IT’S OVER: Michael Barone: ObamaCare Is Obama’s Iraq War.
I think a lot of Democrats would say, and I think they may very well be right, that this is George W. Bush in Iraq. An ambitious policy that was entered onto with great hopes, that was not attended to with sufficient care and willingness to change tactics, and at this point in 2006, things looked pretty bad there for the president, and — though Karl Rove and I were late to pick up on it — for his party.
One difference is that, unlike Bush, Obama has the press on his side. But I don’t think that’ll be enough.
