Jonah Goldberg: Never underestimate what Obama does for spite

SpiteHouseWhile waiting for the president to speak between the Senate and House votes Wednesday night, National Review Online editor-at-large Jonah Goldberg told the panel on Fox News’ “Special Report” to never underestimate the degree to which Obama does things for spite.

Sitting with Fox News’ host Bret Baier and contributor Charles Krauthammer, Golberg said:

I also think it’s never wise to underestimate the degree to which Obama does things for spite.

There are good theoretical, strategic reasons why he might be trying to defy the Congress. But the thing about lancing the blister, whatever the phrase was, and the stuff about going after Boehner, I think the guy can’t help himself often and he simply wants to twist and pinch and rub it in to the other side and say, ‘hey, I was right all along.’

Sometimes it’s just an ‘I told you so’ coming from him.
