"So what is so strange about saying I want Barack Obama to fail if his mission is to reconstruct and reform this nation so that capitalism and individual liberty are not its foundation? Rush Limbaugh After a recent posting by someone that assumed that because I was calling for the resignation of the Homeland Security Director I somehow wanted the President to fail, it made me think about the issue itself. First because I do not listen to Rush Limbaugh I had to see exactly what the original statement was and as I suspected it was very different from what has been tossed around. Of course someone would wish failure upon someone if their aims were to take away their liberties, in fact I doubt you would find many on the left who would disagree that if the statement was making reference to President Bush and is was talking about healhcare and domestic wiretaps that that same wish can be applied. The deeper question though, is to take from that policy wish an overall wish of failure upon the President himself, Speaking only for myself, a President ANY President that leads the nation into peace and provides for a strong economy regardless of who that is including our current President would have my full support, because when that President is successful then we all are. While many of us may disagree on policy issues and the Presidents intentions as to those policy issues, those are disagreements on policy and NOT a wish of overall failure. Frankly, I find it sad when people who in their political blindness would even consider such a notion as to wish a President ill and not be able to distunguish between disagreements on policy and a wish for failure. It's my hope that President Obama does change Washington like he said he would, and change it so that it is fiscally responsbile, and looks out after the safety of all Americans as well as get the economy back in order, and when this Preisdent does not then I will disagree with him as I tend to do more often than not. However, I have great respect for the President because he is my President even though I did not vote for him much like the last President like it or not was everyones President. If we as a nation hope to accomplish anything , then we must at least take into consideration that there will be those that do not agree on issues but that disagreement does not have to equal disrespect it only does when we let it.
