The GOP towel is not George Will's to throw.

He has said he will circumvent congress to do whatever he wants. Only the courts will be able to stop him and that takes a long time. He may be able to change the complexion of the court by then. No we need the White House. Will is a jerk.

This is an example of why the Repubs are in such trouble. Everything in your post is a day late and a dollar short. Obamacare has been implemented, and parts of it now are already working in the system. More will soon follow, and it will be fully operational, as planned by 2014.

Folks are already loving what they're getting now, and they'll love it even more when it's fully implemented. Obamacare will be a completely dead issue by the 2016 election.

And as to that other stuff- Obama is simply using all the same devices available to him that Bush used, and Bush used them to excess. Much of the funding and operations of the Iraq war were accomplished by the same executive powers and recess appointments Obama has used.

Go ahead and try to impeach him. Doing so will only make the Republican part a 30 year loser instead of the 16 that's going to happen. The Democrats considered impeaching Bush, but they stopped and thought twice, something the Republicans are incapable of doing. The odds of winning impeachment make the thought of it prohibitive once a person looks at realistically.

Liberals are not enchanted with Obama now. He made some serious mistakes, and he let a lot of us down badly.
But do not mistake disenchantment for dissatisfaction. He has done just good enough to make him the best choice once more, and most Americans agree with me on this.

Will has been to a lot of horse races in his day, and he knows his stuff. If you don't like his realism, so be it- a tinfoil hat fits all sizes. But he sure ain't no socialist or no Democrat.

The problem with Will's theory: whichever stinker is at the head of the GOP ticket, he'll be a boat anchor wrapped around the feet of Republicans all up and down the ballot
He is a real jerk, always has been, always will be in my estimation...I don't care how he feels about the party and the candidates.
