Obama's motivation is the transformation of America into a socialist democracy, a la western Europe. That's his goal. Nothing else matters. He wants his legacy to be that transformation, not an economic recovery. He could care less if we go off the fiscal cliff. A prerequisite to that transformation is the destruction of political opposition and the neutering of conservatives for generations to come. That's where this episode fits into his plans. While Republicans are twittering about trying to convince America their ideas are right (an argument they just lost last month!), Obama's setting the trap to make them the scapegoats for the fiscal cliff and ensuing economic recession. All he has to do is sit back and blame Congress...
