Lovely. With a poorly planned public positioning on the payroll tax cut, the GOP suddenly looks anti-tax cut, anti-middle-class in one fell swoop. It's not that they are, but they fell into a Democrat trap and will suffer in the polls to a certain extent for a little while. The only plus is that the deal is two months and then will come up again. That gives Republicans a bit less than two months to come up with a better game plan for the next round of the exact same battle.
This isn't rocket science. The GOP is on the right side of this battle yet again, but the optics are wrong, which means the messaging has been completely muddled, again. Can't someone theree get that right before Obama wins a second term?
I'm just asking.
