Recently Rush Limbaugh stated that he hoped President Obama fails. He’s taken a lot of criticism about this from the mainstream news media, despite the fact that the entire Democratic leadership and 55% of surveyed Democrats had hoped that President Bush would fail, back during his Presidency.
“Much has been made of conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh’s statements concerning President Obama and his desire to “see him fail.” I was asked to comment on this during a recent interview. My short answer: Rush is right.”
“Armey’s Axiom: There’s no right way to do the wrong thing. Since he took office, President Obama, prodded by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, has been doing one wrong thing after another in his clumsy attempts to “stimulate” the economy. The result: only government has been stimulated, and at the expense of entrepreneurs, our individual liberties, and economic recovery. Regardless of our hopes for the President, higher spending and punitive taxes will fail the American people.”
“Rush, like so many limited government conservatives, doesn’t want to see Obama’s socialist vision for this country come to fruition at the expense of freedom and individual liberty. We, unlike our counterparts on the Left, see these principles as central to our philosophy of governance. Indeed, we believe they are necessary to live free, happy and productive lives, so why wouldn’t we want to see an obvious affront to them like President Obama’s borrow-tax-spend-and-inflate agenda fail?”
