Democrats strategically walked away from the negotiating table Wednesday during a meeting of the supercommittee because they want to paint Republicans as obstructionists, Sean Hannity said on his radio show today.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., called Hannity in the studio to report the impasse. Paul told Hannity, “I have news straight from sources close to the supercommittee that the Democrats have walked away from the table, and they’re refusing to talk to the Republicans about a deal, and they will not counter any offers, and basically, there’s an impasse, and it’s starting to look like they don’t want any deal at all.”

“Rand Paul’s doing this because he’s pretty smart, strategically, politically,” Hannity said.

The Democrats have a strategy of their own, Hannity said.

“The strategy is simple: It’s that the Democrats don’t want to deal . . . because they want to be out there, being able to say, ‘Republicans — they want the economy to tank,’ ” he said. “They are going to say this is an obstructionist, do-nothing Republican Party when they, the Democrats themselves, have now walked away from the table.”

The Democrats are playing political games because they can’t run on their record, he said.

“They have a record of debt, deficits, declining economy,” he said. “So they’re going to attack. They’re trying to get $1 billion to attack whoever the eventual Republican nominee is. Whoever emerges as a potential threat to Obama is going to be the target of the $1 billion Democratic smear machine.”
