Republicans, Do You Want Obama To Fail?

By  | 

No?

Well tell that to Rush Limbaugh. Because he apparently thinks you do.



Remember when talk like this was called anti-American and traitorous? Personally, I don’t think what Limbaugh is saying is either of those things, but is it tired and sad? Most definitely.

By the way, I understand that many of you have a certain economic philosophy that you think is much better than the plans that Obama is proposing. Trust me, I get it. But what if he’s right? What if these plans work? What will you say then? Will you revise your philosophy?

Because, I’m not sure if you all realize this or not, but liberals believe in creative destruction too. Yes, even though folks like Limbaugh and Hannity would have you believe that we have a copy of the Communist Manifesto by our bedsides, pretty much every single one of us believes in the basic tenets of capitalism. We just don’t believe that the market is self regulating since the profit motive puts money above people.

So I can understand why Limbaugh is so scared. Because if Obama does succeed, he’ll realize that he spent his entire life deriding ideas that actually work. Not that he would ever admit it, but something tells me that a decade from now Republicans will have left Limbaugh far behind.

Fingers crossed.
