With a vote tomorrow, President Obama is highlighting the Republican Party’s opposition to extension of unemployment benefits.

Locally, the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee is highlighting Rep. John Boozman’s vote against helping the long-term unemployed. (See release on jump).

Where do voter sympathies lie? Have they bought the line that all the unemployed are sorry deadbeats who prefer the dole to honest toil?

Worse still, will Republicans really be successful in selling America on how good things were under George W. Bush, architect of the current collapse?
