    On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Tuesday night, network senior political analyst Brit Hume said that the goodwill President Barack Obama enjoyed after the 2012 election is fading, largely because of the implementation of his signature health-care reform law.

    “The usual pattern with the new government-benefit program is [that] once people by the millions begin to use it, it is set in political concrete, [and becomes] far harder to undo than it was to pass,” Hume said. “But Obamacare may be different. Instead of coming together, the program seems to be coming apart.”

    Hume went on to specifically describe some of the failures he sees in the sprawling program’s implementation.

    Hume touched on the question of North Korea, and it seems to me that China and North Korea are testing Obama's use of military power. I think that Obama is unpopular domestically for the high unemployment and high energy prices, as well as the extremely weak dollar. When the AP of all news services started carrying stories about the high cost of Obamacare, I thought that the Democrats were signaling a willingness to delay implementation, or perhaps something more drastic such as repeal of huge sections.
