Just a quick question: What is this absurd notion that we should wish President Obama success and not failure?
He has told us what he intends to accomplish. Given that his ideas are diametrically opposed to practically everything I believe in, why am I obliged to bid him godspeed?
If a man comes swaggering into your home pledging murder and mayhem, you don't wish him success, you work to bring about frustration of his goals.
It is, in my mind, more disavowing of absolutes. I.E., so, he wants something different than you want. Are you suggesting that what you want for the country is right and he is wrong? How dare you!
If he were to discover the truth, and about face on almost everything he proposes, I would wish him all the success in the world.
But given his current stated objectives, you had better believe I hope he fails!
Man up, GOP. Gridlock is the only thing that can save us now.
