What the Republicans do next: double down

"Having already made one gigantic miscalculation, the Republicans now seem poised to make another...they’re convinced that running against health-care reform will win them seats they otherwise wouldn’t get. But responsible Washington observers have been responsibly observing for months that it was obviously a terrible mistake for Obama to “focus” on health care at a time when “the American people” obviously wanted the “focus” to be on “jobs" ... So for the next seven months the Republicans are going to “focus” not on jobs but on … health-care reform? And not on doing it but on getting rid of it" — Hendrik Hertzberg, The New Yorker
