Is this Patriotism?

Do you agree with Rush Limbaugh that we shouldn’t hope for President Obama to succeed?

TOM DELAY: Well, exactly right. I don’t want this for our nation. That’s for sure. 

_______________________________________________________________________________

RUSH LIMBAUGH: So I’m thinking of replying to the guy, “Okay, I’ll send you a response, but I don’t need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.” (interruption) What are you laughing at? See, here’s the point. Everybody thinks it’s outrageous to say. Look, even my staff, “Oh, you can’t do that.” Why not? Why is it any different, what’s new, what is unfair about my saying I hope liberalism fails? Liberalism is our problem. Liberalism is what’s gotten us dangerously close to the precipice here. Why do I want more of it? I don’t care what the Drive-By story is. I would be honored if the Drive-By Media headlined me all day long: “Limbaugh: I Hope Obama Fails.” Somebody’s gotta say it.

JOSEPH FARAH- BETWEEN THE LINES: That's why I do not hesitate today in calling on godly Americans to pray that Barack Hussein Obama fails in his efforts to change our country from one anchored on self-governance and constitutional republicanism to one based on the raw and unlimited power of the central state.

It would be folly to pray for his success in such an evil campaign.

I want Obama to fail because his agenda is 100 percent at odds with God's. Pretending it is not simply makes a mockery of God's straightforward Commandments.

Is Ann Coulter the voice of reason?
 

 Coulter said she actually hopes the president succeeds -- "but that means he'll govern as a conservative."

Mark Sanford, governor of South Carolina said that Rush Limbaugh is an idiot.

I don't want him (Obama) to fail. Anybody who wants him to fail is an idiot, because it means we're all in trouble.

So basically he is implying that Rush Limbaugh an idiot.

Actually,Mark Sanford is also an idiot, although probably not as much of an idiot as Rush Limbaugh. That's like not being as bad of a President as James Buchanan.,,because this is what Sanford said next:

But I do think, in that same vein, if you've looked at the pages of history, if you've looked at the pages of economic data that I've looked at over a long period of time -- I've got a masters in business from the University of Virginia, I've worked up in New York in finance -- if you've looked at that kind of stuff and you legitimately think that something ain't going to work, you'd be cheating him and cheating yourself if you didn't lay it out and call an ace an ace in terms of where you're coming from.

I hate name calling but....as Sanford says,,,,you've got to call and 'ace and ace'

No.

What we're seeing from the right these days is more accurately described as "projection."

Remember how, just a couple of years ago, EVERY criticism of Bush was denounced as "America hating?" Remember how right wingers were claiming that Bush opponents wanted America to be defeated?

Now we see why they thought this. They were ascribing their own reactions to dissent to the rest of us.

I didn't really think that Ann Coulter was the voice of reason.

Didn't think you did. The "no" was in reaction to your question "Is this patriotism?"

I never wanted George Bush to fail. I wanted to be proven wrong. Unfortunately, I don't think that I was.

I clearly disagree with your description of Limbaugh as brave. He makes money by saying the outrageous. Brave would have been if he had supported the President, said something complementary about Michael J. Fox, not slandered John Kerry.

No, I don't think that he's brave. I think that he is mean spirited and dismissive.
