I have a sneaking suspicion that Obama hopes that Iran will detonate a nuclear device somewhere in America – very likely one of the major cities – or even in Israel, so that he would have an excuse to impose martial law and remain in office indefinitely. It would explain why he ignores Iran's nuclear program. Look at the character of the man; he goes to Las Vegas in the midst of an attack on an American consulate, and prefers golf to dealing with crises. I don’t think that's puerile negligence, but rather calculated behavior. As a dedicated Marxist, he treats the presidency as an imperial one, assuming he can do whatever he wishes without consequence or recrimination. And the MSM is his de facto Ministry of Truth.
