The GOP's Biggest Strategic Mistake

The Fix: "By virtually any measure, the rollout of the health-care exchanges -- a central element of the Affordable Care Act -- has been a disaster... That's front page/top of broadcast sort of news. And it's all bad for President Obama. Except that the federal government is shut down, a story so big that it has sucked up all the media oxygen that under virtually any other circumstances would be spent on the problems with a centerpiece of Obamacare. And that is Republicans' single biggest strategic misstep of this entire shutdown -- and the one that may haunt them for months to come."

"As we have written before, health care is a stone-cold winner -- if polling is accurate -- for Republicans in the midterm elections unless they screw it up, which they are in the process of doing."
