Will Republicans put country first?
January 25, 2009
Limbaugh wants Obama to fail. The cynicism inherent in that statement reflects what he really is: a showman looking for attention.
Never mind his arguments that Democrats may end up with a ‘permanent majority’ like FDR built. Fixing the country and the Democrats benefiting from it go hand in hand. You can’t have one without the other.
Wanting the Obama and the Dems to fail is to want the country to fail. If Rush doesn’t like this he should complain to the one that brought this disaster upon us all: Bush.
We have come to a provervial ‘moment of truth’: Will conservatives obstruct just to prevent long-term Democratic control, and send the country into disaster? Or will they accept some blame for the situation we found ourselves in, and give Obama some room to maneuver?
In other words, are conservatives prepared to put country first?
