Like A Freakin’ Rug II

R*sh L*mb**gh claims that liberals wanted George Bush to fail. This is a key part of his justification for broadcasting loudly and repeatedly that he wants President Obama to fail. (I won’t link to him. You can Google it.) R. L. has caused me to reprise the song I sang through the last presidential campaign.

To be clear: I never wanted former President George Bush to fail.

I wanted him to come to his senses. I wanted him to change his policies. I wanted him to reverse course on many issues. I wanted him to lose the 2000 and 2004 elections. I criticized former President Bush. I was grateful for the rights afforded me under the Constitution of the United States of America that I could criticize him. But I never wanted him to fail. The presidency and our nation are profoundly and inextricably linked. To wish for the failure of a president is to wish for the failure of our country.
