Republicans Find Their Voice in Opposition

Hosted by

With his stimulus package in trouble, President Obama hit the campaign trail today, and will keep up the pressure tomorrow. But despite his overwhelming popularity, Republicans have done as much as he has to frame the issues. What are they gaining by saying “no?” After November’s political drubbing, Republicans were looking at much more than just a winter of discontent.  But Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin says, “We’re so far ahead of where we thought we’d be at this time.” That’s according to today’s Washington Post, in a story by Alec MacGillis.
