George Will on Obama: “He needed to change the subject and this has helped him do it”

Syndicated columnist George Will said Friday the ongoing fight in Washington over the government shutdown, ObamaCare rollout glitches and the looming debt ceiling deadline are all part of a bigger, longer game.

In his inaugural appearance on Fox News as a contributor on “Special Report with Bret Baier,” Will said that President Obama is looking beyond the present problems.

“I think he understands that unless he can generate a huge anti-Republican wave sufficient to take the House next year, he is apt to lose the Senate and his presidency will be neutered," Will said. "This is a very high stakes, longheaded plan on the part of the President.”
