    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- -- It's OK for Republicans to want President Obama to fail if they think he's jeopardizing the country, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal told members of his political party Tuesday night.


    Gov. Bobby Jindal is offering a spirited defense of Republicans who say they want President Obama to fail.

    Jindal described the premise of the question -- "Do you want the president to fail?" -- as the "latest gotcha game" being perpetrated by Democrats against Republicans.

    "Make no mistake: Anything other than an immediate and compliant, 'Why no sir, I don't want the president to fail,' is treated as some sort of act of treason, civil disobedience or political obstructionism," Jindal said at a political fundraiser attended by 1,200 people. "This is political correctness run amok."

    What if Obama succeeds? What if he turns the economy around and leads us into an era of unprecedented prosperity, peace, and global humanity?

    I think the GOP would still want him to fail because they are just playing a political game.

    If that happens, then Obama has failed because his policies arent going to do that.

    Yeah WHAT IF? I mean just because there is not a SINGLE example of policy which punishes prosperity ever having promoted prosperity... in the history of HUMANITY... that's no reason to believe that IT COULDN'T HAPPEN!

    I mean WHAT IF PRESIDENT HUSSEIN SPROUTS WINGS AND FLIES AROUND THE COUNTRY CRAPPING DIAMONDS ON THE POOR! Would you want him to FAIL AT THAT TOO? HELL NO! So does that mean that it's WRONG to go around telling the poor not to make their decisions based upon the unreasonable expectation that they're about to be enriched through the looming windfall from the Diamon Rain!

    ROFLMNAO... you can't make this crap up.

    If I posted an assertion where I stated that "LEFTISTS ARE BLINDLY ENGAGING IN CULT PERSONALITY, BASED UPON ABJECT IGNORANCE..." They'd RAISE HELL! calling me a LAIR and demanding I PROVE THAT SOME LEFTIST EVER MADE A STATEMENT WHICH PROVED THAT THEY'RE IGNORANTLY FOLLOWING BLINDLY IN A PERSONALITY CULT.

    Well, Jindal screwed up his one big chance in front of a large national audience! If he wants to stay in Republican politics, he has to make it up to the Right Wing loons. So this is his latest attempt to kiss up to the Right. If this does not work, I expect he will have his lips surgically sutured to Limbaugh's ass!!

    Not a matter of wanting, BO will fail.

    His 'stimulus' was just an old Democrat wish list of things they never could get passed before, and his omibus is simply an attempt to buy votes with government givaways through massive earmarks.

    I hope they all fail in these attempts to buy votes instead of doing what is right and needed.

    Socialism does not lead to prosperity... Maybe for those who are on welfare but not for those who work for a living. Sorry.

    Why are people stuck on this idea that Obama is socialism? HE IS NOT SOCIALIST!! even the guy that ran for pres under the socialist party platform said Obama is not socialist, doesnt seem that hard to grasp, but then again what do I and the guy that is actually part of the socialist party movement really know anyways? :lol:
