Has Obama Lost His Mind? Why the Gitmo Plan Was Fake and President Is Seeking to Infuriate
By Edmund Kozak, LifeZette.com
President Obama offers a $4 trillion budget that blows the debt past $20 trillion. A week later he announces he’ll pop down to Cuba to meet with the Castros. Then he skips the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. And on Tuesday, Obama demanded that Congress shut down the Guantanamo Bay terrorist detention center.
What on Earth could he be thinking? Is he crazy?
He’s crazy, all right — crazy like a fox. Obama is intent on angering the conservative and Republican base — hence the Scalia diss and the Castro visit. Moreover, he wants to continue to paint the GOP as obstructionist, standing in his way of important business, like refusing to pass a budget and rejecting the closure of Gitmo. The seemingly outrageous and illogical acts of his final few months in office are calculated moves designed specifically to drive conservatives crazy — and thus appear increasingly radical — in the lead-up to a vitally important election year.
