Here’s a weird one.
Republican Strategist Dick Morris writes in The Hill: If President Obama succeeds in getting congressional Republicans to agree on raising tax rates, Democrats… somehow lose.
From his column:
Victory could prove the undoing of the Democratic Party. If Obama has his way and runs America into the ground through spending, borrowing and taxing, the resulting economic disaster will convert all those demographic Democrats into new Republicans. They will see, firsthand and vividly, the results of Obama’s economic policies and they will recoil in horror.
It didn’t happen in 2012 because things had not gotten bad enough. Now they will, and the political consequences will be severe for this president and his party.
Any Republicans out there want to roll the dice on this one?
