It Was All A Trap! President Obama Planned the Whole Government Shutdown!

Obama Trap

After the Republicans’ “brilliant plan” to shutdown the government in order to get rid of Obamacare turned out to be not so brilliant, they need to find someone to blame – and author Ed Klein has just the person(s): Obama and his senior adviser Valerie B. Jarrett.

Ed Klein, who wrote a widely criticized biography of Obama called The Amateur, claims that President Barack Obama deliberately lured Republicans into a trap planned by his senior advisor Valerie Jarrett. Go on…

“(Jarrett) convinced the president that a government shutdown and default offered a great opportunity to demonize the Republicans and help the Democrats win back a majority in the House of Representatives in 2014,” Klein told The New York Post.

“Valerie also came with the idea of using the words ‘hostage’, and ‘ransom’ and ‘terrorists’ against the Republicans,” Klein added.

Of course they didn’t screw themselves over – they were trapped! And by a Kenyan-commmunist-Muslim!

Over several late night strategy sessions, Obama and his advisor devised the diabolical plan to refuse to negotiate with the Republicans, make them look like fools and drive their favorability ratings into the ground.

Well, if that was their plan, it certainly worked well. Recent opinion polls reveal that Americans place the blame mainly on the GOP with nearly three-quarters disapproving of Republicans’ handling of the budget crisis. If only they hadn’t fallen for that trap! Or had just passed the budget in the first place and foiled the Democrats evil “plan”.

Hindsight’s 20/20 – except if you belong to the Tea Party.  Some Republicans are eager to fall into the “trap” again come the next debt-celling standoff. Rep. John C. Fleming said he’s already looking forward to the next shutdown, telling The New York Times, “That will get us into Round 2. See, we’re going to start this all over again.” Sigh…
