GOP Bungling "Unemployment Extension" issue - as usual

Just when I think the GOP has found the last way to be on the wrong side of a political issue; they find another.

Today the Senate will take up the issue of extending unemployment benefits for 99 weeks. The fact that this is an absurd policy has nothing to do with the reality that the political optics are being bungled, once again, by the GOP.

Rather than simply oppose the extension on principal, they need to adopt the following position:

We regret that the dismal performance of the economy due to the destructive policies of this administration make it necessary to once again extend this "temporary measure," until we can correct the devastating economic policies of this administration. 

... or something like that.

But again, that's probably too much for which to hope.
