The massive disconnect in D.C.

From Jennifer Rubin:

There is an almost total disconnect between the real issues facing the country — a growing nuclear threat from Iran, a floundering war effort in Afghanistan, a bulging debt, a falling dollar, and near double-digit unemployment — and the focus of the Congress and the president. The Obama administration either doesn’t know what to do about the growing list of critical issues or doesn’t have the interest in addressing them. So it has manufactured a “health-care crisis” that now absorbs nearly all of Washington’s political energy.
