Republican both in hose and senate as well as the unofficial head of the GOP, Rush Limbaugh have actually come out and stated that they hope Obama fails and that stimulus fails. Are they betting against America in order to score political points?

    Basically. If the economy rebounds, they’re politically finished for 2010 and 2012, they basically have to hope for things to get worse.

    Nope.
    We’re betting that Socialism fails. Thats what Democrats want and if it fails, America succeeds.

    Oh, and another thing, when it fails…….. goodbye Democrats.

    No I believe they genuinely are trying to help while Obama is calling them poor losers for not cooperating with his foul schemes.

    No, we are just showing you liberals the folly of your ways when we actively work agaisnst the bill’s success. Socialism does not work, and you people have it coming.

    Have you actually listened to the whole story behind what he actually said??? I have and the left has taken his words and twisted them so so bad! He like so many people on both sides do hope that some of Obama’s plans fail cause if they don’t we are in so much trouble we’ll never get out of. Quit twisting words.

    had you been alive in the 1930′s and 40′s and lived in germany would you want hitler to fail? did the far left loons want us to do well in iraq, or viet nam? there are many examples of this throughout history!

    I don’t hope it will fail; I’m fairly certain that it will fail. There’s a big difference between the two. Why would I want to see people having a hard time? I just got out of college with student loans. If the stimulus works, I’ll admit that I was wrong and be glad I was.

    Republicans are not willing to join hands with Democrats and jump off the cliff. We have more common sense then that, do you really believe it was wise to vote on a bill that had not been read by on single congressman/woman?

    They are betting against the socialist policy not America. Are the libs betting against America in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan when they said we cannot win and should withdraw?

    Based on the number of thumbs down pro-republicans are getting, I guess libs are.

    You got to get off the kool aid.

    This stimulus was never meant to do anything but dupe the ignorant masses……..it would appear it worked.

    The economy will crash by the end of 2009.

    Now whether you call that Obama failing or not is pointless because NEWSFLASH he can’t control the economy??

    The Federal Reserve is running the show.

    A brief history lesson:

    Lincoln established the idea of “the Union” (aka Federal Govt overriding state govt.) which effectively overrides the 10th amendment.

    This allowed for the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913 (“federal” like Federal Express) which issues paper money.

    FDR confiscated all the gold bullion in 1933 via Executive Order 6102 and gave the people paper in exchange. (Shortly after this forced sale, the price of gold from the treasury for international transactions was raised to $35 an ounce; the U.S. government thereby devalued the U.S. dollar by 41%.)

    Nixon abandoned the gold standard completely. (Resulted in more inflation and a dollar with even less purchasing power)

    Now the whole paper financial fiction is about to collapse and people will have nothing.

    ……..As an interesting side note, if the govt. nationalizes the banks and then the dollar collapses, then the GOVT. could start seizing assets because THEY WOULD OWN THE BANKS. (dollar bills certainly won’t cover any debt in 8 months)

    Andrew Jackson (who hated Central Banks and paper money) actually managed to get the national debt down to about $30,000 at one point. The banking cartel (Federal Reserve), once established, thought it funny to then put his face on the most popular piece of paper money in history: the twenty dollar bill.

    Even though I don’t listen to Rush I know that he said he hopes Obama’s policies fail. I do too because his policies are bad.

    The stimulus is just a spending bill that will put undue burden on the taxpayer. It is nothing more than political payback.

    y’all cornered the market on hope (err, or has that market already been nationalized?)

    nobody *actually* hopes it fails… are you kidding me? it’s more of this sick, sinking feeling in our abdominal areas – almost similar to the feeling you get when somebody close to you passes.

    You’re onto something.

    There is a new theology of fear under Rush Limbaugh that the world is going to collapse because of this bill, when it already has under the rampant spending by the Bush Administration.

    There are ministers who were preaching end times and are encouraging a violence and racism instead of a new day and a new economy.

    They know not what they do.

    You got it. It’s going to backfire too, probably even if the economy is still sucking. The American people are starting to pay attention; they’re looking at the GOP, and they don’t like what they see at all. Hell, legalizing pot now has a 10% higher approval rating than the Republican Party!

    They are hoping Socialism in the USA fails.

    IT’s a good bet even with a Spread because it has failed everywhere else in the world.

    Of course they are, they have no idea of their own other then the “cut taxes” mantra that they always spew. They left us with a 4 trillion dollar debt and now have no intentions of helping to get us out since if they do they fell somehow they will look bad? They wave their flags and wear their lapel pins but actually bet against America?. They have become so irrelevant that Rush Limbaugh now speaks for them. As you can see they are all on one page… their new word “Socialism” and 90% have no idea what that even is? Do you support Public Education? Do you support Social Security? Do you support Medicare? If you said yes to any of these you are a Socialist. To bet against you own country makes you equal to scum that I wipe off my shoe after I ride the subway. America will succeed and we will get out of this mess, with or without their help, it is probably better off without their help cause look what they have done so far!

    Yes,and if its for political reasons that will fail too.I may not like all I hear on the news but I do love my country and I want it to be strong,doesn’t matter who makes it that way but it does matter how,and if you aren’t for the President then you are against America.You don’t have to like him but you do have to stand with him.Because to do otherwise says you aren’t for America in her time of trouble.And people will remember you in her good times.Oh yes

    I don’t know how anyone who works and pays taxes in this country would ‘want’ it to fail. Expecting it to fail is another matter. It will take more than positive thinking for it to succeed.
