Under the bus he is likely to go.

Obama's Gitmo blame game - Josh Gerstein - POLITICO.com

But sources familiar with the process believe Craig is being set-up as the fall guy and say the blame for missing the deadline extends well beyond him.

The White House misread the congressional mood – as it found out abruptly in May, when the Senate voted 90-6 against funds for closing the base after Republicans stoked fears about bringing prisoners to the U.S.

The White House misread the public mood – as roughly half of Americans surveyed say they disagree with Obama’s approach.

But most of all Obama’s aides mistook that political consensus from the campaign trail for a deep commitment in Washington to do whatever it takes to close the prison.
He "misread" the mood? Since he wasn't listening to anybody but his fringe left base, it is not surprising he is having another "rethink" on the issue.

I suppose they want it like Bush did.

Protect and cover for incompetence no matter what.

If you think it's just this guy who's responsible for it then you really need to re-read that article. He's a nobody. They need to go for bigger fish if the Gitmo closing is screwed up.

I do not think it would be called strategy Sanrene, afterall ObamAcorn has no clue what that means.

I think he tossed darts in the WH hallways to make the calls.
