Float Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee

The moral lesson of the day: Don't pick a fight with Barack Obama.  You may get in a lot of early punches, but he'll slowly wear you down, all the while waiting for the knockout blow.  It can be maddening at times to watch in real time, but there can be no doubt any longer this President is a resilient fighter.

Sullivan says it best:

It's called contrast and compare. If the bill becomes more popular, what people will remember is that the GOP did all they could to kill it, and every tea-party meltdown will be in the minds of voters.

Obama's genius is not attacking his opposition head-first. It is patiently assisting its self-destruction. First Clinton; then McCain; then Palin; now the GOP as a whole.
