Why do people keep saying that past government shutdowns were "disasters" for Republicans [View all]

Yes - the two 1995 shutdowns had a very negative impact on Republicans.

But what harm did the 2013 shutdown do to the Republicans, besides getting them a lot of bad press at the time? A year after they shut down the government, the Republicans went on to to take back the Senate and then, two years later, they took the White House. If that's a "disaster," I'd hate to see what a success would have looked like for them.

Am I missing something?
