Kirsten Powers Has Just ‘Given Up’ Trying to Guess Why Obama Does What He Does

Democrats in competitive Senate races this year are backing away from President Obama, and the president is making it really hard, considering in the past few weeks he’s said his policies are on the ballot and voting for a Democrat means voting to continue his agenda. Megyn Kelly asked Kirsten Powers last night why this is happening. And Powers basically said she just doesn’t want to waste time divining what’s going on in Obama’s mind.

Yet another Democrat this week, Senator Kay Hagan, didn’t give a straight answer to a question of whether she supports the president. Powers said Obama’s likely fine with Democrats criticizing him because above all else, he wants Democrats to control the Senate after the midterms.

But then, Kelly asked, why would Obama be making such public statements about all votes for Democrats being for him? Powers admitted, “I’ve kind of given up trying to explain why he does some of the things he does, because it doesn’t make sense.”
