Sanford Has It Right

It is ok to disagree with Obama's policy but...no one should hope he fails.

Interview on RCP

And I said [to Obama], “Man to man, I dont want to disagree with you on anything. And as an American, I absolutely want you to succeed. And therefore, as an American who wants you to succeed ­ because we’re all in this boat together ­ it’s incumbent upon me, if I think an idea is a bad idea, even though I don’t want to disagree, to lay it out.” And he said his say and I said my say and he said his say and I said my say, and we called it quits.


I don’t want him to fail. Anybody who wants him to fail is an idiot, because it means we’re all in trouble. But I do think, in that same vein, if you’ve looked at the pages of history, if you’ve looked at the pages of economic data that I’ve looked at over a long period of time — I’ve got a masters in business from the University of Virginia, I’ve worked up in New York in finance — if you’ve looked at that kind of stuff and you legitimately think that something ain’t going to work, you’d be cheating him and cheating yourself if you didn’t lay it out and call an ace an ace in terms of where you’re coming from.

Bobby's Volcanos, If Yellowstone park blows it won't matter anyway. Besides, then the Republicans can blame that failure of the Earth's crust on President Obama, Liberals and no pray in schools.

I've heard all this success/failure baloney before. Let's see, O's a guy who wants to borrow unlimited amounts of money and insert government control into areas where it has never been before. He also has allowed Pelosi and her ilk huge influence on spending priorities. We have cabinet members who avoid taxes. Others have helped make deals for pardoning criminals, and now are charged with upholding laws. And now I am expected to pay more in taxes so people who made millions making bad loans and purchasing houses they couldn't afford can keep their BMW's. Or is it the golden toilets I need to pay for? It's difficult to keep track of just how much "patriotism" is being called for, isn't it, Mr Biden?

Sorry sheep. I hope the man and his administration fails miserably from the very beginning. For a generation, while crying otherwise, we haven't had a problem screwing our kids future. It has always been about what is in it for us. Why get a conscience now? Remember how much you guys hated that terrible man, Pres Bush? Well I think O man is just as bad. I won't stoop to your level and make stuff up about the man, I just hope his policies fail. Completely.
