Flashback: Carville Wanted Bush to Fail - Presidential Politics | Political News - FOXNews.com I only need to post the sub-head here, mostly because it just shows how biased FoxNews is. Ready? The press never reported that Democratic strategist James Carville said he wanted President Bush to fail before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But a feeding frenzy ensued when radio host Rush Limbaugh recently said he wanted President Obama to fail. On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, just minutes before learning of the terrorist attacks on America, Democratic strategist James Carville was hoping for President Bush to fail, telling a group of Washington reporters: "I certainly hope he doesn't succeed." So, on average, Rush Limbaugh reaches 20-30 million people per day. James Carville reaches.... A group of Washington reporters. And FoxNews equates the two. It's absolutely laughable.
