THE TAKE | There's reason for both parties to feel good about debate between Obama, House GOP.
President Obama goes to GOP's house
This goes well beyond "Opinions on shape of Earth differ, both sides have a point." it is theoretically possible for both sides to have a point about the shape of the earth, but partisan politics in the USA is a zero sum game -- if Democrats win Republicans loose. Is Balz arguing that both Democrats and Republicans gained at the expense of the Connecticut for Lieberman party ?
There is no need for the headline to address the question of who won and who lost. Given the choice to score the Q&A it is simply unacceptable to adopt the rule that the score must be a tie no matter what happened.
This is pure Ballance.
