They'll keep saying them because annoying Republicans is more important than credibility, but here are some rebuttals for starters .... A. Rush Limbaugh did not wish that America would fail. Hoping that Obama would fail to pass what we believe to be destructive policies is the complete opposite of hoping that America will fail. Did you Democrat dweebs hope that Bush would succeed in passing Social Security reform? B. Joe Wilson didn't yell "you lie" at a State of the Union address. He shouldn't have said it during Obama's speech, but the speech wasn't an SOTU address, and if you don't know the difference maybe you shouldn't be posting on political forums. C. Mitch McConnell's statement about Obama being a one-term president was not made before Obama was inaugurated. It wasn't even made in 2009. And there was no implication that the Republican party's goal is to defeat Obama even if it hurts America. Again, exactly the opposite. McConnell's statement was an acknowledgement of the reality that even if Republicans had managed to gain control in the Senate they wouldn't be able to repeal Obamacare until 2013 at the earliest. Obama would veto any repeal legislation. When Scott Brown was elected from Massachusetts that should have been a clue. It should have sent Obama a message to rethink his approach, but instead it made him double down. McConnell correctly stated that the only way we can undo some of Obama's worst legislation is to elect a Republican president in 2012. Well, we can still hope that the Supreme Court will declare Obamacare unconstitutuional, but in general, the way to get the nation set back on what we as Republicans feel is the correct track is to get a Republican president. I know this won't stop the lies and careless claims but I feel better for saying it. People who can't even tell 2008 from 2010 are probably incapable of learning. Carry on.
