Obama is the best thing that ever happened to Rush since Clinton.

He's an entertainer.
A bad one, but an entertainer.

In a similar way, the best thing that ever happened to pisspoor latenite comedians and standup jerkoffs alike was Bush.
They'll miss him.


Letterman is still making fun of Bush. He was the subject of his top 10 list last night.

That'll get stale soon.

He was like a fountain of material every time he opened his mouth.
Now those d-bags will actually have to use some creativity.

Why don't you actually quote what Rush really said? Here's the part of the interview transcript ... really, really read what he said .... (note: emphasis mine)

HANNITY: Coming off record-ratings year for you, but you are a passionate conservative. You've defined conservatives for many people in this country for years. He represents the antithesis in terms of his worldview. So then the question becomes: Do you want him to succeed?

RUSH: Now, this... (turns to camera) I am so glad that he asked me that question. (turns back to Hannity) I am so glad that you asked me this question.

HANNITY: I'm glad to. (chuckles)

RUSH: I'll tell you why. I am hearing many Republicans say that very thing. "Well, we want him to succeed," and prominent Republicans! "Yes, we want him to succeed." They have laid down. They have totally. They're drinking the Kool-Aid, too. They have no guts to stand up for what their beliefs are because they're afraid of criticism. They're afraid of being called racists. They're afraid of not having gotten with the program. Now success can be defined two ways. I said earlier, "I don't know about this guy." I really don't. I've got my suspicions and they're pretty close to convictions, but we're going to have to wait to see what he does. Now if he turns out to be a Reagan, if he adds Reagan to his recipe of FDR and Lincoln --

HANNITY: (laughing)

RUSH: -- and if he does cut some taxes --

HANNITY: Yeah.

RUSH: -- if he does not eliminate the Bush tax cuts, I would call that success. So yes, I would hope he would succeed if he acts like Reagan. But if he's going to do FDR -- if he's going to do The New New Deal all over, which we will call here The Raw Deal -- why would I want him to succeed? Look, he's my president. The fact that he is historic is irrelevant to me now. It matters not at all. If he is going to implement a far-left agenda... Look, I think it's already decided: a $2 trillion in stimulus? The growth of government? I think the intent here is to create as many dependant Americans as possible looking to government for their hope and salvation. If he gets nationalized health care, I mean, it's over, Sean. We're never going to roll that back. That's the end of America as we have known it, because that's then going to set the stage for everything being government owned, operated, or provided. Why would I want that to succeed? I don't believe in that. I know that's not how this country is going to be great in the future; it's not what made this country great. So I shamelessly say, "No! I want him to fail." If his agenda is a far-left collectivism -- some people say socialism -- as a conservative heartfelt, deeply, why would I want socialism to succeed?

So basically, If Obama just does what Bush tried to do, he'd be "successful". Great logic there Rush.

Put me in the same camp.

If Obama wants to take the country towards socialism, I hope he fails too.

sh*t, just don't listen to the radio station people.
Personally, I hope Barack is the greatest President ever.
And next year, he has all the Panthers to the White House.

I will be there as well.

If more government control is on the horizon for any reason, I want some failure. If cutting back government (much like the cutting back that all of us are having to do) is on the horizon, well then I hope he is a historical success.

I will always go back to the way I feel however. He is my President, and although I do not agree with much of what he preaches, I will still stand behind him and up for this country.

I hope he is a good president and does a good job running the country, but I hope he fails at trying to implement some of the policies he desires.
