Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suspect that it comes from the particular mindset you need to be a succesful politician. I don't think projecting forward dispassionately to a range of consequences, both preffered and is a strong part of their character.

They're seagull managers (fly around, shit on everything, fly off) rather than people who ever have to live with the consequences of activities (beyond the inconvenience of electoral defeat).
