Without a pair, even TDD can lead to major design bloat. (Back to the drawing board, again.)

Obama caves again. As I see it, this is another case of the tail wagging the dog: Obama is simply unwilling (scared?) to make the political case for sane regulation, so he folds before the flop.
The “backlash” was not unmanageable; it was simply unmanaged. The Democratic leaders totally dropped the ball on messaging. Even this week, when Obama has given them a *perfect* talking point, none of the Democrats I’ve seen interviewed on TV or radio are calling the Republicans hostage-takers. “Tone-deaf” doesn’t begin to cover it — they are simply senseless.

Such was the frustration among the wonks [in the Obama administration] that, when asked to explain their tax-cut strategy, they’d morbidly joke that there was no strategy, just an “approach.”
The [political] operatives were rightly put off by the cowardice of Senate Democrats. What they didn’t grasp was the structural advantage of a White House in framing a debate. The West Wing’s reluctance to exploit this advantage was a bitter irony given that polls showed Obama to be highly effective on the tax question as a candidate. “Obama thinks there are campaigns and there’s governing, and never the twain shall meet,” laments one Democratic consultant.” —Barack Obama, Tax Cuts, 2012, And David Axelrod: Inside A Divided White House | The New Republic
