    Sometimes style points matter. And this issue was both a political winner and good policy. I'm baffled at this party's ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    It seems like the Obama admin has gone overboard since the 2008 election to try to show that their above all of this partisan muckraking and that all they care about is policy and not politics. But certain times call for a political fight and this is one of them.

    If the Dems lose this battle, or worse don't even fight it, then they will have conceded the taxes and deficits arguments to the GOP, even when every objective analysis says the Dems position is better and the public even agrees.

    If this is a preview for how the next 2 years are going to go, we're in big trouble in 2012.
