Now that he has won the battle on the budget and the debt ceiling, President Barack Obama will continue seeking to divide Republicans in the House to achieve his legislative agenda, says conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer.

"So [Obama’s] looking to immigration, he’s looking to carbon taxes and other stuff in the future. If he can split the Republicans in the House, essentially, he regains control of the two houses of Congress and he might be able to enact his agenda," Krauthammer told Fox News Wednesday.

Story continues below video.



"I think that’s what he’s up to."

Indeed, this has been the president's strategy from the beginning, Krauthammer said.

"I think Obama’s long game has always been, if he’s going to pass his agenda in the second term, where he doesn’t control the House, he has to fracture the Republicans in the House," the commentator said.

"By rubbing it in or by antagonizing conservatives, he’s going to help in doing that."
