Top stories on PostPolitics right now:
Chris Cillizza: Many Democrats insisted that while Obama’s “doing fine” gaffe wasn’t his best moment, it was far from consequential in his reelection race. But that sound byte isn’t going to go away any time soon.
George P. Bush tells She the People’s Suzi Parker that his dad would say yes if asked to join the Romney ticket.
On the Fix: Last week’s Wisconsin recall has some writing the obituary of the public sector union, arguing that it will soon join the private sector union in the realm of the politically irrelevant. Which makes sense in some ways, and doesn’t in others.
On the Fact Checker: Every politician has his or her talking points. These lines are carefully crafted to present their case in the best possible light, or their opponent in the worst possible light. The problem is when they start believing the spin themselves. That’s what happened to President Obama on Friday, when he said at a news conference that “the private sector is doing fine.”
