I don't think he cares, do you? I think his ego is fueled by whatever pieces of his radical agenda he can put in place, not what Joe Q. Public happens to think of him.
What's he got to lose? He can indulge his muslim sympathies by settling a million more here. If stopped by congress or public outcry, he can indulge his muslim sympathies by pointing out in speech after speech how hateful Americans are, while handing CAIR and ilk fundraising bait and opportunities to agitate. Either way, it's another chance to poke the country in the eye and try to overwhelm his enemies with the sheer number of radical things he's doing.
If only he DID care what the man and woman on the street think!
