    Which is fine. But certainly, for your own well being, you want it to work even if you have reservations about whether it will work, right?

    So long as the average American associates conservatism with Rush Limbaugh, the GOP will have zero political capital.
    This opinion and false rhetoric of course is wrong, but what I find most amusing in such desperate rhetoric is the notion that Conservatives are the extremists while we watch the reckless and almost criminal runaway spending of this administration and the resulting drop in the stock market because of the reckless populist message being spewed by this new Administration.

    Capital is fleeing watching this reckless spending and desperate divisive rhetoric and you think the Conservatives are the extremists? That is a very funny, yet absurd argument.

    The reason this administration wastes time on a talk show host is because it is attempting to distract Americans away from the issues surrounding the Democrats power grab over every major facet of our economy.

    Rush Limbaugh is a loud voice that expresses the feelings felt by millions of Americans and when the Democrats attempt to demagogue and belittle his message, they are belittling the beliefs of millions of Americans who now cannot have their voice heard over the cacophony of Socialist largess and almost Marxist like rhetoric we are seeing in our Government.

    The irony is watching Democrats who demagogue the Bush white house as attempting to run our lives now have to desperately defend the REAL takeover and play it down as Conservatives wanting America to fail. But alas, this is no different than the desperate rhetoric we heard about the Iraq War and how it would fail and how the surge would not work and how Bush lied us into a war of his own choosing.

    Conservative voices that are being marginalized are the ones fearful of the failure of America. Watching the reckless out of control efforts of Democrats should frighten every citizen in this country. But instead, as is typical from the Democrats, it is all about winning elections and marginalizing your opponents and NOT about solving America’s problems.

    Alas, if the world were as simple as Liberals attempt to make it, wouldn’t it be nice if the ONLY thing a Nation had to do to prop up an economy or prevent recessions was to spend and tax it’s citizens into oblivion. But we have history on our side and if we look at it honestly, there is no history that suggests this can be done.

    What we are witnessing here is a Democrat grab at political power and takeover of the American economy on a scale never seen before in our history, particularly in a time of peace. The reason is clear; they know that if they do not implement their entire agenda regardless of the cost to the American tax payer, they may not get another chance because the American people, and rightly so, may just vote them out of power once again just as they did in 1992.

    No Southern, I think it is YOU and the Democrats who don't get it. In two years time when this economy is still wallowing in disaster and the tax bill is sent to the American people, it will serve as a troubling reminder of how badly the American voters where duped this election and why they can never trust ONE party to control the Government. Doing the right thing requires courage; something NO politician can afford because the American voters are so profoundly ignorant of the issues, economics and the historic record.

    I'm scared, I really do not think this is the time to raise capital gains taxes.

    That is stupid. So you would rather us to slide into Depression, where tens of millions of Americans slide into poverty and billions around the world suffer simply because you don't want Obama's economic policies to work.

    That is just beyond ****ty of you.

    No what is "****ty" is delving into a statist society out of fear of market corrections.

    What's ****ty is Obama using a national crisis to press controversial agendae without any debate.

    I was willing to give all this a shot until Nancy Pelosi played like a spoiled little brat over the availability of the bill and all the things that led up to the voting.

    **** Obama and the Democrats. **** 'em in the ear.

    I really hate repeating mysaelf

    If you believe that doing nothing will, long term, do less harm to the economy and to the country than the success of The Obama's plan, then there is nothing wrong at all with hoping that His plan fails.

    Why?
    Aside from the nationalization of the finance and auto industry, and the socialization of the enormous costs associated with their failure...

    Nothing says "you aren't responsible for your bad decisions" like The Plan.
    There's nothing worse than teaching people they aren't responsible for their bad decisions.

    Hope The Plan fails?
    Absolutely -- a depressision isn't as bad as the long-term harm The Plan will cause.

    They will pass; there is no one to stop the Democrats from implementing their entire agenda this or early next year.

    If they fail, it will be too late to attempt to turn back the clock; the damage is done.

    I think the bottom line is this, decades from now as we watch our tax rates grow, our healthcare become marginalized, productivity vanishes and the Unions continue expand their control over vast parts of our industry and service sector, Americans will look back and say, "damn, we REALLY messed up and all we needed to do was look at the mess Europe was in."

    But that's okay, pot will be legal and we can all hang out at the unemployment office collecting our permanent welfare checks, smoking pot and reminisce about the good old days when Republicans controlled the Congress.

    Re: White House fires back at Rush Limbaugh

    If America was a car and Obama is driving us in the wrong direction then obviously you hope he fails. The only way to get back on track is to realize you took a wrong turn. Do I personally hope Obama fails? Yep.

    I VOTED for Obama.

    I did it for two reasons. #1 McCain was running as a Republican who was going to drive down the wrong rode under the Republican label. Obama was going to go down the wrong rode under the Democrat label. If we're going to continue to move further and further away from conservatism it is best that we do so under a Democrat and not under a Republican.

    #2 I was tired of race wars and happy to see that come to an end.

    Do I hope Obama fails as in eventually we need to get back on track and start driving in the right direction? Abso****inglutely.

    ....Unless of course winged unicorns really do fly out of his arse and the heavens light up with rainbows while folks in the middle east play with my little ponies while eating ice cream. Do I see that happening? Uh no.
