In our Monday newspaper column, we suggested that this week is the single most important seven-day period of President Obama’s first term in office due to the Supreme Court rulings on immigration and health care as well as pending Congressional business on highway funding and student loans in Congress.
“Any one of those issues — in isolation — would be a major political event with resultant consequences on the presidential race. Combined them all in the space of a week and we may well look back at this coming seven days as where/when Obama’s second term bid was made/broken.”
Not everyone agreed — including Stu Rothenberg, a political handicapper of great renown and a former Fix colleague.
Tweeted Stu (in his characteristically blunt manner):
First Friday in July, Aug and Sept more important to Obama than Sup Ct decision. Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.— Stuart Rothenberg (@StuPolitics) June 24, 2012
So, who’s right: The Fix or The Stu? Neither of us? The comments section awaits your judgment.
