Bad PR Tactic 

It is a measure of how far out of the mainstream the Republican party has washed that it seeks to brand Democrats as "socialists." Other than its shrunken conservative base, few know or care what a socialist might be. The tactic is delusional, especially since the President's popularity has not fallen that much. Were the Republicans in tune with most voters, they would be focusing on legislation to get the country moving again. They would be serving as a loyal opposition to some of the wrong-headed approaches the President is proposing with rational, but common-sense alternatives. Instead, they are trying to brand Democrats. It is poor PR at best and a guaranteed way for the party to wander in political wilderness for years to come.
