E J Dionne: Obama Losing Stimulus Fight to Defeated GOP

E J writes GOP kicking Dems because...
They have done so largely by focusing on minor bits of the stimulus that amount, as Obama said in at least two of his network interviews, to "less than 1 percent of the overall package." But Republicans have succeeded in defining the proposal by its least significant parts.
So why did Dems include such goofy minor bits in such a bill if they thought it so critical? Why risk it? Dionne may think the GOP defeated but Dems clearly not ready for prime time.
