The GOP has to get a PR presence. Most of the claims of the Dems are flat out lies but the American public will not know that unless someone points it out early and often. Rubio has tried but there needs to be others. In addition, there needs to be a real negotiating strategy. Boehner looks like he is wining it and is way out of his league

When you lose an election, you get frustrated. When you're sitting in a subpar 2 percent economy, and are faced with tax hikes rather than marginal rate reductions, you get even more frustrated. And when you're staring at $47 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, and $8.6 trillion in deficits, your frustration levels climb even higher.

These are among the frustrations that led a number of House Republicans to pull back from Speaker John Boehner's so-called Plan B. Nobody looked good on the Republican side when Thursday night's vote fell through. But you have to understand their frustrations....
