Will’s Take: ‘Ignoring Reality Is Part of the Job Description of Being a Progressive’

The only way President Obama could deliver such a forthright and ambitious State of the Union address earlier this week after his party’s shellacking in the midterms a few months is if he is denial, says George Will.

“Ignoring reality is part of the job description of being a progressive, so you ignore the majorities that are out there,” he said on Fox News Sunday. “The fact is, I think, Mr. Obama believes that anything he has to do collaboratively is beneath his dignity.”

“Therefore why believe that, to coin a phrase that he made famous, elections have consequences.” Will concluded.
