Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau (not the actor) and CNN host S.E. Cupp engaged in a contentious Twitter battle on Thursday over President Barack Obama’s “vision” and so-called “anti-government fringe” conservatives’ effort to derail said “vision.”
Here’s how it played out:

So sorry the President has a vision he was elected twice on RT @: This pro government victory lap is unnecessary and nauseating.
Wait, THIS is his vision? B/c so far, it's awesome RT @ So sorry the President has a vision he was elected twice on @
@ Nah, THIS is what happens to our political system when your party is completely overrun by its anti-government fringe.
@ Who also had "a vision they were elected twice on." But luckily, we have a leader who can transcend politics.
@ His position was supported by bipartisan majorities in both houses of Congress last night. Theirs would have destroyed the economy.
@ A bipartisan majority for more gridlock! Obamacare will destroy the economy. But shhh...because Obama has a vision!
@ You're right, you guys are doing fantastic. Compelling message, broad support from around 1/5 of the country - full steam ahead!
@ Nearly 4/5 think the country's on the wrong track. Full steam ahead! And O's legacy will be: "Blame them." Inspiring stuff.
@ Yeah, when the Tea Party gets to shut down the government and damage the economy for no reason, it'll make a country pretty grumpy
@ Come on #Crossfire and we'll debate why the country's so grumpy! (I have a feeling it started before the shutdown.) @
Who do you think won?
