Michael Tannner Sums Up Social Security Debate 

The Washington Post hates the idea of private social security accounts. So every few days we are going to be exposed to stories such as this one by Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen in which reporters search for Republicans who will oppose the President's plan. Mike Tanner of CATO perfectly captures the coming battle:

"This is the toughest political fight the president has ever picked...On the other hand, the president has never lost a fight he has wanted to win. It'll be interesting - the immovable object versus the irresistible force."

(This last line was originally part of the Post story but was edited out. You can view the quote as it first appeared here.)

And just what has gotten into Newt Gingrich and Bill Kristol?
