NPR: Criticism of President Coming from 'GOP Dope'

National Public Radio has a blog post about President Obama's statement this morning on the private sector--and how conservatives reacted to the president's assertion that"the private sector is doing fine." The title of the post? "GOP Dope Slaps Obama For Saying Private Sector's 'Doing Fine.'"
In fact, the author, Frank James, does not name just one member of the Republican party as the singular "dope" would suggest. He includes the reaction of Republican House speaker John Boehner, House majority leader Eric Cantor, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell.

UPDATE II: A reader explains the meaning of "dope slap":
