My friend Scott McKay at The Hayride (in Louisiana) is kind enough to cite approvingly a post of mine in support (mostly) of the Boehner position on the payroll tax holiday… but he then goes on to reason it out more fully, and illustrate the issues better, than I did. The money paragraph:
It seems strange that Boehner is being advised to cave because of “optics” less than a week before Christmas on a policy question where he’s clearly in the right - even his critics cede him that. So what if Chuck Schumer is singing show tunes over his party’s victory in a meaningless news cycle or two? If this country is going to be turned around it’s going to take a lot more strategic thinking than just attempting to beat Democrats one news cycle at a time.
I’m with Scott.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
