“it would be charitable to say he doubled down on what he said in January in wishing and hoping for economic failure in this country.” – Robert Gibbs, Press Secretary for President Barack Hussein Obama on Rush Limbaugh, March 2, 2009
Not that Rush Limbaugh needs defending, but Robert Gibbs either purposefully ignores what Rush says, has hearing and reading problems, or is just plain dense. Anyone who opposes socialism/statism/collectivism should hope that the policies that President Obama proposes fail. “Success” in this case means LESS FREEDOM and more control of your lives from Washington. NO ONE hopes that the country fails economically, anyone who treasures freedom hopes that anti-liberty policies fail. Gibbs, it is easy to attack a straw man argument, the Presidency deserves real responses, not copouts.
“I can only imagine what might have been said a few years ago if somebody might have said that on the other side relating to what was going on in this country or our endeavors overseas.” – Gibbs
And it appears his memory is failing too.
