"I Certainly Hope He Doesn't Succeed"

Well, the liberal hypocrisy train just keeps on rolling. After the Dems/libs contorted themselves into fits of rage over Rush Limbaugh's now infamous statement hoping Barack Obama fails, we now have word that none other than Democratic strategist James Carville wished the SAME tidings on George W. Bush on, of all days, September 11, 2001. Yes, THAT September 11. It went something like this.

Carville was at a breakfast with Washington reporters when, just minutes before learning of the 9/11 attacks, he remarked regarding Bush, "I certainly hope he doesn't succeed." The words of Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg, who was also at the breakfast, were even more antagonistic. Greenberg said he wanted Americans "to turn against [Bush]", and was incredulous that they didn't want to. "They don't want him to fail," Greenberg whined. "I mean, they think it matters if the president of the United States fails."

There you have it folks. Two of the Dems' bigwigs drooling over the prospect of a Bush failure only a few months into his presidency. After that naked display of mean-spirited partisanship how can Dems/libs believe they are in any position to condemn Rush? Ah, but they do!

Shortly after his slur was exposed Carville tried to defend himself by saying that he told the gathered reporters to disregard his anti-Bush remarks immediately after he heard of the terrorist attacks. And that's true. After learning of the attacks, Carville DID tell the reporters, "Disregard everything we just said! This changes everything!". And I'm sure Carville meant that at the time. 9/11 shocked a lot of liberals back into patriotism but for most of them--not necessarily Carville included--that sentiment had evaporated within a year of the Towers falling. By the time the Iraq war started liberals were back into full we-want-Bush/America-to-fail/lose mode. Oh, yes they were.

Fast forward six years and now those same lefties are having a nervous breakdown over Rush hoping quasi-socialist Obamanomics fail. Rush didn't say he wanted Obama PERSONALLY to fail. He didn't call Obama a Nazi, a tyrant, a war criminal, or a chimpanzee as liberals were so fond of calling Bush. Rather, Rush limited his consternation strictly to Obama's POLICIES. He wasn't trading in mindless ideological hatred, which is more than can be said for his leftist critics.

The truth is, all those liberals who are now saying we should give Obama a chance and not criticize him so soon were itching for Bush to fail only a few months into his presidency. Well, what's good for the liberal goose is good for the conservative gander. Rush Limbaugh, or anyone else, is free to opine on Barack Obama's success or lack thereof. Obama is not entitled to support simply because he's president, a sentiment liberals would wholeheartedly agree with if Bush were still in office. Rush scrutinized Obama's policies and found them wanting, and he said so. Liberals, that is his American right. Get over it.

Progressives did their best for 8 years to talk Bush down to failure. They -- especially heinous -- talked down the military, and talked up the terrorists, to paint Bush as a failure.

Now, Limbaugh's "I want Obama to fail" upsets them? Mwhahahaha. Get ready for a lot more upsets, hypocrites. Especially since most of your upcoming upsets will be self-inflicted from your own failed ideology blowing up in your faces.

And yeah, I agree with Limbaugh: I want Barry Soetero's socialist agenda to fail, too.

http://www.johnhanson.net/ John Hanson (1715-1783) was the first president (1780-1783) of the United States under the Confederation before the Constitution. He was an Oldenburg Moor, a black nobleman, and he, like, Elijah-Baptist-Mehdi, went to heaven in a chariot of fire and never died. He has returned as Obama!

Vernon, are you outta your mind?

Great post my friend. I couldn't have said it any better, and you added more detail than I did....*ss* Great post, and now the truth is finally getting out there for all to see.

Vernon, your as crazy as your photo shows you to be. Like Seane-Anna said, You're out of your mind.

Obama is a reincarnation of something, but what that something is, is not good for this nation. He has spent or proposed to spend more money than has been spent since Washington was president till Obama's inauguration. That isn't good in any state of mind.

What kind of a shithead uses autoplay music on their blog? Oh, right. A wingnut blogger.

Barry Soetero is a reintarnation of Jimmy Carter, all the worst parts.

OK, you probably know where I stand.

I agree with Gingrich, not so much with Limbaugh.

While I EXPECT the current continuation of G W Bush's Keynesianism to fail, I DON'T "hope it fails" because that's wishing misery on the entire population.

I think Gingrich had it right, the current policies will almost certainly bring about MORE economic misery, but that shouldn't be hoped for...maybe the current administration will have "an epiphany" and wise up, OR perhaps a sea-change in Congress in 2010 might wake them up!

JMK, you are still being too nice to those people. Sigh.

"JMK, you are still being too nice to those people. Sigh." (Seane-Anna)


No, I'm not being nice at all.

Right now, for better or worse (and it's INDEED for the worse), we have Democratic control of the two primary branches of government.

They ARE going to install their policies.

Railing against them isn't going to do any good.

Threatening them won't do THEM any harm and may get those who do arrested.

No NEED for that....threats are warnings, why warn anyone???

Besides, things are going to get much, MUCH worse.

What's the answer?

Stockpile information.

KNOW the roots of the current credit crisis.

KNOW that Keynesian economic policies from Bush's to Pelosi-Reid's have reversed the incredibly successful Gingrich (the architect of the booming late-1990s) left us.

KNOW that NOT all Republicans are Conservatives and that G W Bush was as Keynesian as his Dad, who was as Keynesian as Nixon and Hoover!

I believe we're heading in a VERY wrong direction and we're in for some increasingly hard times. It's beginning to look like Barack Obama may well follow the SAME script that Jimmy Carter followed so disastrously.

Will those same bad policies deliver different (better) results now?

Hardly likely.

Bitter Liberals wound up angry at an electorate they felt "stupidly" elected G W Bush (TWICE), the people weren't "stupid" to elect Obama.

Frankly, he ran a better campaign than did John McCain (who, like Bush, was NOT a Conservative either).

Now the Obama administration has both Houses of Congress and they're going to implement a LOT of their agenda.

If that proves disastrous, which I beleive it will, that will be their undoing and there's nothing they can implement that can't be undone once Conservatives re-take the government once they fail.

In the mean time, it's a sound strategy for us NOT to marginalize ourselves by wallowing and reveling in anger.....after all, that's what the far-Left did for eight years.....there's nothing good that comes from that!
