Judge Napolitano: Obama Wants Shutdown to Be as Painful as Possible

As seen on Fox and Friends

Judge Andrew Napolitano stopped by Fox & Friends to discuss the controversy surrounding WWII vets being denied entry into the D.C. memorial due to the government shutdown.Then again, the judge pointed out that the shutdown hasn't stopped surveillance operations at the NSA. 

With some help from members of Congress, the elderly vets eventually did bypass the barricades, but Napolitano believes President Obama wanted this shutdown because it helps him politically.

Like with the sequester, Napolitano said the Obama administration wants the shutdown to be as painful as possible, and has the ability to "increase the pain or decrease the pain" on the American people.
