    I remember quite clearly right before Congress left DC, this particular tax cut issue was on the table and Dems decided not to address it. I remember being furious. I still am.

    If this issue was put up for a vote prior to the election, it may have made a significant change in both Dem messaging and media framing.

    Yes, great frame Obama -- it sure would have been nice to take the lead on this issue when it mattered. (This does not mean it does not matter now, but R may not have had such significant gains with clear, focused messaging like this.)
