Krauthammer’s Take: Obama Will Push Immigration Reform with Eye Toward Midterms

President Obama will use immigration reform as a weapon for the 2014 midterm elections, Charles Krauthammer said Thursday night.

“He thinks . . . that he can exploit this for the midterm election as way to gin up support, for the Democrats to portray the Republicans as anti-immigrant, anti-Hispanic, etc.,” Krauthammer said on Special Report.

“He’s not going to be in the middle of the negotiations over the budget,” Krauthammer said, “and that will allow him to go out into the country and to make immigration, I think, his big cause.”
