Republican strategist Karl Rove on Sunday described President Barack Obama's behavior throughout the budget showdown as "stubborn obstructionism" whose goal is to "get more money and break the Republicans."

"The stubborn obstructionism of the president … has a purpose, which is to try and get the Congress to agree to the Senate Democrats' spending number, which is $91 billion bigger than the House, and bust the sequester, and end the 2011 spending agreements," Rove said on "Fox News Sunday." "He is attempting to put the responsibility for raising the debt ceiling and, in fact, naming the amount of the debt ceiling on the Congress and not on himself."

Rove said budget experts both inside and outside of Congress have told him a $1 trillion debt increase is needed "to get the debt and the government past the 2014 election."

"He [Obama] doesn't want to be the guy who goes out and says, well, after all this happy talk about the spending and deficits, and how everything is hunky dory, that he needs $1 trillion more in authority to get himself through the next year," Rove said.
