The Republican National Committee produced a fundraising video ridiculing President Obama for his "string of defeats in Congress," according to a voiceover, during the first 100 days of his second term. To brag about the defeat of gun regulations, including universal background checks favored by 90 percent of the country, the video features the image above of the president comforting a woman in the White House Rose Garden. Who is this woman? She's Nicole Hockley, grieving mother of 6-year-old Newtown shooting victim Dylan Hockley.
Stay classy, Republicans. We see how well your rebranding effort is going. May it all come back to haunt you in 2014.
