article imagePat Robertson Denounces Rush Limbaugh For Hoping Obama Fails

By Chris V. Thangham     Feb 17, 2009 in Politics
Christian leader Pat Robertson blasted talk show host Rush Limbaugh for saying “I hope he (Obama) fails”. He added that only an irrational person would think such things.
Conservative Christian leader Pat Robertson, in an interview with U.S. News & World Report, denounced Limbaugh for making a controversial statement.
Pat Robertson talked about how Obama was faring so far. Robertson is not pleased with Obama’s cabinet or passing a bill which he claims is Pelosi’s idea. He said Obama should have exerted more leadership into what went into the stimulus package and also try to get more bipartisanship.
It's not over, but I still want to give him the benefit of every doubt, and I definitely hope he succeeds. It wouldn't be good for Americans for him not to. We don't want a president who fails at domestic and foreign policy.
Dan Gilgoff from the U.S. News & World Report then asked him whether he agrees with Rush Limbaugh’s “I hope he fails” school of thought.
Pat Robertson replied:
That was a terrible thing to say...I mean, he's the president of all the country. If he succeeds, the country succeeds. And if he doesn't, it hurts us all. Anybody who would pull against our president is not exactly thinking rationally.
Rush Limbaugh not only wants Obama to fail but also his stimulus package to fail as well.
