Rush LimBaugh: “I Hope Obama Fails”

So first I have O’Reilly jocking my video like its Palin Porn, now Rush has gone and said some of the most ignorant mess to come out of his mouth in what, the last five minutes….stolen from thinkprogress.


“Are conservative talk-show hosts eager to go on the attack, after years of defending Bush?” asks the Louisville Courier-Journal’s Larry Muhammad. The answer is clearly yes.

Barack Obama has not yet taken office, and Rush Limbaugh is already rooting for his failure. On his radio show last Friday, Limbaugh said, “I disagree fervently with the people on our [Republican] side of the aisle who have caved and who say, ‘Well, I hope he succeeds.’”

Limbaugh told his listeners that he was asked by “a major American print publication” to offer a 400-word statement explaining his “hope for the Obama presidency.” He responded:

So I’m thinking of replying to the guy, “Okay, I’ll send you a response, but I don’t need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.” (interruption) What are you laughing at? See, here’s the point. Everybody thinks it’s outrageous to say. Look, even my staff, “Oh, you can’t do that.” Why not? Why is it any different, what’s new, what is unfair about my saying I hope liberalism fails? Liberalism is our problem. Liberalism is what’s gotten us dangerously close to the precipice here. Why do I want more of it? I don’t care what the Drive-By story is. I would be honored if the Drive-By Media headlined me all day long: “Limbaugh: I Hope Obama Fails.” Somebody’s gotta say it.

    dude its amazing that a dude can hope for failure. I don’t even think i hoped for Bush to fail until he started the war then i wished he’d be impeached b/c its so obvious that our American brothers and sisters (of all races) are over there dying so his pops and his golf buddies can profit off the oil while the rest of the country is in a recession. A day into his presidency a wish for Obama’s failure is a wish for America’s failure. So i suppose next he’d be saying that another 4 years of Bush would have been better. He just wants attention like a little kid that no one likes. Bad publicity is still publicity. Lets do this dude the way Barry would do him. Pay his ass no mind, he’s a good old boy dinosaur. You are not what America is made of any more hommie.

    Perhaps its upsetting that nobody wants to grow up to be the next Rush any more. We got a whole bunch of Barrys in training my dude and they are coming in all ages, races and religions. So respectfully, eat a dic . . . tation pen and choke. I hope you fail @ digesting it.

    Dumbasss little socialists conveniently forget that over 50% of them didn’t want GWB to succeed when he was President. Hey! Hitler is our President! We want him to fail. No, wait, we can’t say that, the little socialists will scream and whine about it!

    I dunno where you get your 50% from but I didn’t want him to fail, I wanted him to be impeached for stealing the election both times. But as long as he was in office I wanted him to succeed so America would succeed. Since he didn’t on pretty much any level at all I can’t say I’m happy about it, that only makes it harder for the next guy. John Doe…. U scared?
