As the public turns sour on his signature health care law, President Barack Obama may be experiencing the second worst start of a second term in history, says political pundit George Will.

"Has there ever, with the exception of Richard Nixon in 1973, been a worse first year of a second term?" will said on "Fox News Sunday."

Will noted that a Pew poll shows disapproval of the Affordable Care Act is at 59 percent.  He also noted that Obama has 65 percent disapproval on the economy.

The apology Obama issued last week for the millions of people who are having their insurance premiums spike did little to help, he said.

"It's one thing for Bill Clinton to say, 'I feel your pain,'" Will said. It's another thing for Barack Obama to say, 'I feel your pain that I have caused.'"
