Rubin on Gregg:
The bottom line: this is another executive management debacle, which if isolated, would be no big deal. That it is part of an emerging pattern of questionable judgment, poor execution and destructive partisanship suggests there is something seriously out of whack in the White House.
What worries me longer-term is Obama’s attempt here to politicize the census. It’s already a messy exercise as it is. Bringing it into the White House might mean years of lawsuits. But Obama the Community Organizer proved last year that long-term campaigns are won with a great ground game — and there’s no bigger game than the census.
