    not necessarily. the government's drag on growth and job creation is a product of the poor policies it enacts. if we elect a Republican who pursues the same poor policies (as Bush did in his last year or so), then the result will not change, and if Obama and Senate Democrats wake up tomorrow and alter their agenda to one that is more pro-growth, then the results will change.

    usually it's not the person - it's the policies. someone with a 'D' after their name can get positive economic results from wise economic policy just as easily as someone with an 'R' can.

    no. it's no different than your neighbor kicking your door in to rob your house. do you want him him to fail or succeed?
    barack obama is an anti-American imposter. and anyone wishing this man success is a traitor.

    If they dont work they dont work, didnt say you have to AGREE with them or support them
    But wanting him to fail is illogical unless his goal is honestly to hurt the US which it is not.

    Your OPINION on whether a presidents ideas are good or bad are no more valuable then anyone else but you still root for success.

    To dumb it down as simple as possible, youre on a football team, coach and QB deiced a QB sneak is what we are going to run, do you hope the coach and QB fail just because you wanted a pass play? of course not lol

    You can verbally disagree
    You can hope/vote for a new president / QB
    but you always root for your own team because their decisions were made because they wanted to WIN, they were trying to loose.

    Its pretty simple actually, dont confuse disagreeing or wanting things done differently with hope he fails.
    You realize if he fails WE ALL LOSE because then no progress is made for 4 years.

    Just like the QB if he doesnt score what good is that? You still want him to score because it means WE ALL win.

    A better analogy is this:

    You know that covering yourself in pollen will attract bees. Your friend wants to cover herself in pollen because she thinks the bees will respond "peacefully", collecting pollen from her without stinging. You hope she fails in her experiment, because you feel confidently that it will end badly. People confident that Obama's policies will end badly are perfectly logical in hoping those policies fail. The illogical stance is to hope for success blindly, despite evidence that a policy will be largely negative.

    indeed we did. and if it weren't necessary to point to history in our attempts to shape future policy, that would be easier to ignore.
