Here's a question related to the Gibbs flap: Did Obama deliberately allow Gibbs to insult his base in order to lower moral so that the GOP would win this fall, followed by (inevitably, I think) overplaying their hands in typical neocon draconian fashion, plunging the nation deeper into depression, resulting in a large Democratic victory in 2012?
It's that old 3-dimensional chess question, again, isnt it?
No, I'm giving too much credit to Obama, and certainly to the Democrats. Still, it'd be interesting to see what the Republicans would do if they were to regain a majority. Nothing good, I'm sure.
