...The Obama administration and the Democrats keep repeating Rush’s line that he wants Obama to fail, and they say that nothing could be more un-American than to root for Obama to fail.
I can think of many things more un-American than wanting Obama to fail;
Democrats rooting for the United States to fail in the war on terrorism, for example. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said in April 2007, “This war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything”; and the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, announcing to the world that we had lost in Iraq and we should bring the troops home in defeat, empowering our enemies to kill more American soldiers.
And they did it for selfish reasons, undermining the war effort with abject lies, divided the nation and provided them an opportunity to win more seats in the House, Senate and win back the White House. That is far more un-American than anything anyone has said about Obama.
The truth is that nobody hopes Obama fails, but many of us are rooting for America’s survival as a free and prosperous nation and that means blocking Obama’s agenda everywhere we can. (more)
