Obama's long range strategy

Yes I hate polls, but I read some of them anyway. It's no surprise that Republican approval rates are tanking now that the low info voters have been reminded how GOPers govern. If you can call their endless politicking governance. But the reason I'm linking in is because this one sentence resonated:
These poll numbers also point to the reality that Republicans taking control of the House may have been one of the best things that could possibly have happened for Obama's reelection prospects.
I often thought during the 2010 campaign that the White House didn't necessarily care if they lost control of the House for precisely this reason. The voters are impatient, have notoriously short attention spans and are easily taken in by the latest narratives that ignore or rewrite history. They needed to be reminded and what better way than to let the GOPers demonstrate their true motives for a couple of years?
