I wish the President’s Jobs Act could turn around our economy and put people back to work. Like most Americans, we want the President to be successful. But wishful thinking won’t make it so.

Mitt Romney has had a tough week, Newt Gingrich a tough month, Barack Obama a tough three years. But hey, they could be Ron Wyden. Ticked off by Washington’s failure to tackle big problems? Spare a moment for Oregon’s senior senator. Mr. Wyden is the Democrat who in December had [...]
