Barbara Walters: Where are the Republicans? Why is he now the leader of the party?
Joy Behar: He said 'I hopes he fails.' That's very unpatriotic as far as I'm concerned.
Sherri Shepherd: If Obama fails, let's say with this whole stimulus package, this is coming off the backs of children. If this fails. America could fail. So, you can't separate Obama from America.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck: There were plenty of people who wanted Bush to fail. Let me redirect it a little bit. What concerns me even more than what Rush Limbaugh said was Obama's reaction. I just hope that when talking to Democrats, let's not solely rely on Keith Olbermann or Chris Matthews. Did he give them the same lecture?
Walters: The Democrats are not picking these people to be their leaders. Republicans are, Elisabeth.
The Republicans in a sense are relying on Rush Limbaugh, the Democrats are not relying on ... I think what was more upsetting was when he brought race into it.
The race-baiting by Limbaugh didn't bother Palin's pal. After 9/11 (since they brought it up), America hoped George Bush would succeed. Partisanship was at an all-time low, but poor EH is just clueless. She's dismissing Limbaugh's outrageous comments at a time when America's economy is hanging by a thread, and to make Rush appear to be sane, she plays the conservative game: Blame other people for different behavior on the left.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck thinks that Rush Limbaugh begging for Obama to fail is on the same level as Keith Olbermann calling out all the lies told by the Bush administration.
Excuse us, Ms. Hasselbeck, Limbaugh went on record saying that he hoped Obama failed. Did Olbermann and Matthews ever go on record and say that they hope President Bush failed? They may be very critical of Bush but did they ever say they wanted him to fail?
NOPE, there is difference, a big difference between being critical of a president and hoping he fails. Given the over the top knee jerk reactions that the wingnuts had whenever anyone was remotely critical of Bush, Limbaugh’s words could be considered treasonous.
Does anybody remember what happened to the Dixie Chicks?
For a right-wing woman to apologize for a man who basically hates women (except when he has his little blue pills) is pretty appalling.
