No, I do not really hope such a thing and anybody that does is a total friggin no good for nothing NUTCASE. BUT that is essentially what many Republicans are hoping for when they openly say they hope President Obama fails. I guess that they don't care that if he fails, WE fail too. As much as I detest Bush, never would I have even thought "oh it would be cool to have another 9-11 to make Bush a failure". We should all pause and thank God Almightly- and yes maybe a bit Bush that we have not been attacked again. But I guess the conservative Republicans do not care if the country sinks. They don't care if we are attacked, they don't care if our economy completely fails and they don't care about America. Just as long as they can make Obama look bad. What a damn shame!

It isn't all Republicans. I for one hope President Obama does well our country depends on it. On top of that, maybe I am in the minority here but I am a conservative that hates Limbaugh.

I don't hope he fails as President, but I hope he fails to get the policies he wants passed. Reason: I don't like his policies. In my opinion, he has really started out with a bad sense of values. Go easy on the criminals and kill innocent babies using my hard earned money is not my idea of a good president.

I think that was clarified. He said he hopes Obama fails in his efforts to implement his socialist agenda.

So do I.

I'm a conservative who thinks Limbaugh stopped being relevant when he got caught doing the same things that he rallied against other people doing. He wanted to throw away the key for everyone else, but somehow his circumstances were different. No thanks.

And I'm 100% in support of President Obama as of the minute he was sworn in, and that won't change. I didn't vote for him. I know there will be plenty of times when I won't agree with him. But he's the president now, and he's got a lot of work to do. I root against sports teams, not the leaders of my country. He has to do well for everyone, and I sincerely hope he does.

The dems and libs have been giving aid and comfort to our enemies for 8 years. They have tried their hardest to cut and run and surrender in Iraq.

They have consistently sided with our enemies on foreign policy.

They have obstructed for the last 30 years our ability to tap resources here in the US, making us less dependent on countries that don't have our best interests at heart.

They have consistently rooted for bad things to happen to this country, just so bush would not gain a victory over them.

Where were you while your fellow liberals constantly and predictably engaged in acts of treasonous behavior?

I have not heard any of my fellow republicans say anything even close to this! As for Rush... like the others have said, do your homework because he was talking about Obama's agenda.

I also hope that he doesn't get most of his agendas passed.... because I do not agree with them (which is my American right... for now anyway).

Having said that... he is my president now and MY bible tells me that I have to respect those in Authority to me. So with all respect I will pray for Obama and my country..... May God have mercy on us.

Where were YOU when your hero Ronnie RayGun was engaged in the treasonous act of selling weapons to an enemy?
