Krauthammer: Obama isn’t trying to fix our fiscal issues, he’s trying to destroy the Republicans



Why are Republicans allowing the entire debate to be about taxes and about the war among Republicans over holding the line on the Norquist pledge or not, when what Obama is proposing on raising the rates on the 2% is a triviality. It will reduce the deficit from 1.10 trillion to 1.02 trillion – 8 cents on the dollar. It is nothing, it’s lunch money, it’s a rounding error. And yet that’s all the debate that we are hearing.

Obama understands this. He’s not trying to fix our fiscal issues and problems. He’s trying to destroy the Republicans by insisting that there is a split among the Republicans on this issue which has held them together, the same way it destroyed President Bush Sr. when he went back on the pledge he made. This is a political attack on Republicans. There is no evidence right now that he has any interest in the real fiscal issue because he would have to talk about spending and entitlements and he isn’t.
