Hoping Obama Fails: Why Rush Was Right

I remember the outrage in January of 2009 when Rush Limbaugh said on this show, “I hope Obama fails.”  It came back to me this month when Joe Scarborough, member of the 1994 Republican class, turned MSNBC sycophant said,

I’m rooting for the President, we all are rooting for the President, if Rush Limbaugh is still rooting against the President then he’s rooting for America to be in a fast decline.  Rooting for his stocks to collapse.  These are precarious times and we need a president who knows what he’s doing.  And we need a president who has the support of the American people.

It was clear to me then, and it is now,  what Rush meant.  He was not saying he wanted the President’s policies to fail, he was saying he hoped the President Obama failed to get his policies enacted, because his socialist policies would be terrible for the US.  To be more clear.  I want the President to FAIL to get his way because in getting his way the President is destroying American freedom and wealth with every collectivist policy he enacts.

What’s less apparent is if if Rush understands that the Neo-Con policies of George W. Bush  eroded American Freedom and wealth as much as Obama’s.
