At Psychology Today Blogs, Charles Johnston muses on what seems to be the political strategy of the current occupant of the White House. A snippet:
With the election polls trending poorly for the current president in the U.S., there is really only one kind of strategy that remains if he is to be reelected. It might seem exactly backwards, but it has always been much of the current president’s strategy (though just how conscious this has been I am not sure). And Democrats seem always ready to play along. That strategy is to generate maximum discord and polarization.
