The Republicans’ PR Challenge

10:58 a.m. E.T.

From “Morning Joe”:

JOE SCARBOROUGH: We haven’t really scored the winners and the losers, politically. Let’s do it really quickly, here, okay? Barack Obama? Big winner. John Boehner? Big loser. The Republicans in the House? Big, big losers. The leadership, it is hard to imagine, Mark Halperin, how the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives could have mismanaged this process any worse than they did.

MARK HALPERIN: Well, you forgot one big winner: Joe Biden or as I call him, Joe Biden ’16. Look, Richard said last segment or two segments ago, if the Republicans had a different strategy going two weeks ago, they might have had a better chance. Last minute, they had no chance. They lost, in part, because they lost the PR fight leading up to this. They have an even bigger PR loss coming out of this.

Watch the video above.
