Dick Morris on 2016: Iran, Immigration, Obamacare 'Radioactive' Issues

By    |   Wednesday, 15 Jul 2015 07:41 PM

Three of the biggest issues of the 2016 presidential campaign are — still — Obamacare, immigration and Iran, political strategist Dick Morris told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

Note: Dick Morris is appearing all this week on Newsmax TV discussing the 2016 presidential race, the Republican primary and Hillary's campaign.

"None of them is dead," Morris, who served in the Clinton White House, told "The Hard Line" host Ed Berliner. "They're all alive and radioactive."

"Developments happen in them as the campaign unfolds — and the administration is locked into a position, and so is Hillary [Clinton] and the Democratic Party," Morris added. "As that position gets hurt by reality, they get hurt by reality.

"What happens in August of next year if 200,000 Central American children show up on our doorstep again? What happens when the ayatollah gives a speech that he's going to bury 'the Great Satan' and bomb the hell out of Israel?

"What happens when premium-increase notices hit the average American family — and medical rationing becomes clear and we realize we'll never see a doctor again and from now on it'll just be nurse practitioners?

"What happens is all of that manifests itself without – not under the control of a Democratic candidate," Morris said. "That's the danger of those issues."

Morris is the co-author of the New York Times best-selling book, "Power Grab: Obama's Dangerous Plan for a One-Party Nation."

He then sized up the GOP field on these issues, saying that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the leader on opposing Obamacare, while billionaire businessman Donald Trump is the leader on immigration.

Obamacare has been Cruz's "thing from the beginning. He knows the ins and outs of it thoroughly, and he's very strong on that."

Trump "obviously … can be the guy who runs with" immigration, Morris said.

"The interesting thing about immigration is not who it helps but who it hurts. It hurts Bush; it hurts Walker, because he used to be pro-immigration when he was governor. It hurts Rubio because he was part of the Gang of Eight that sponsored immigration reform.

"When they look at candidates who have been on both sides of these issues, a guy like a Cruz or Trump look increasingly good — because you know once they say something, they're going to stay with it."
