Why does Rush Limbaugh hate America?
LIMBAUGH: I got a request here from a major American print publication. "Dear Rush: For the Obama [Immaculate] Inauguration we are asking a handful of very prominent politicians, statesmen, scholars, businessmen, commentators, and economists to write 400 words on their hope for the Obama presidency. We would love to include you. If you could send us 400 words on your hope for the Obama presidency, we need it by Monday night, that would be ideal." Now, we're caught in this trap again. The premise is, what is your "hope." My hope, and please understand me when I say this. I disagree fervently with the people on our side of the aisle who have caved and who say, "Well, I hope he succeeds. We've got to give him a chance." Why? They didn't give Bush a chance in 2000. Before he was inaugurated the search-and-destroy mission had begun. I'm not talking about search-and-destroy, but I've been listening to Barack Obama for a year-and-a-half. I know what his politics are. I know what his plans are, as he has stated them. I don't want them to succeed.Thanks to the last eight years of the Bush Deregulation Machine, the United States is on the brink of economic catastrophe, we're in the midst record home foreclosures, we are teetering on double digit unemployment, our banking and auto industries are falling apart and even before Barack Obama takes the Oath of Office from an incompetent, Bush appointed Chief Justice who lacked the intelligence to understand the gravity of an historical Inauguration and thought he could wing it, the biggest gasbag of all conservative talk show wingnuts hopes that Obama will fail. In essence, he is hoping for the country to fail just so he can say "I told you so."
... 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."
He proved as much when he called for riots in the streets during the Democratic National Convention in Denver that he dubbed Operation Chaos. He wanted riots in the streets akin to the Chicago riots of 1968 just to cause havoc in the Democratic choice for nominee in hopes that it would give McCain momentum to win the White House and further erode our Constitutional liberties and complete the destruction of the country that George W. Bush began.
So I think I'll pull a page out of the Ann Coulter playbook* and call Rush Limbaugh a traitor. From now on, he'll be known on this blog as "Traitor Rush Limbaugh."
Using their way of thinking, I know it's a braincramper but stay with me for a moment, disagreeing with Bush or his policies or anything the neocons would vomit out for the last eight years was tantamount to treason in Coulter's little pea brain. It wasn't dissent. It wasn't protest. It wasn't civil disobedience. It was treason. So using that as a gauge, when Limbaugh hopes President Obama (and get used to saying "President Obama," Rush) fails in his attempt to advert the brick wall that the Bush administration has driven this country towards, that equates treason. By Coulter's own, ridiculous standard that she chooses to apply, Rush Limbaugh is a traitorous, dangerous, shall we say "enemy combatant"?
