"Democrats think that this is the best thing that could possibly happen to their campaign. It's no longer, 'Do you like the way the country is going or no? ... Now the choice is, 'Well you may not like Afghanistan or renewable energy or Solyndra or health insurance coverage for contraception or something--fine. Do you like Medicare?' Now it is a choice. It is no longer just a referendum on Obama and that's everything they wanted."

- MSNBC host of The Rachel Maddow Show, Rachel Maddow, made this comment in a debate on Meet The Press Sunday morning. Rich Lowry, from The National Review disagreed with her and tried rebuttal after rebuttal but Maddow wouldn't budge.
