How Republicans Gave Obama a Chance

Paul Begala: "I cannot think of a time when the economy declined but the president was not blamed -- but this may be the first. If the Republicans were smart, they would do on taxes what they did on trade: quietly pass Obama's proposals, knowing full well that even a million new jobs will not be enough to climb out of the hole Obama inherited. (Fourteen million Americans are unemployed.) The economy isn't giving Obama enough jobs, but the Republicans are giving him the next best thing: a villain to blame for the poor economy. By killing Obama's jobs agenda, Republicans may just save his presidency."
