The Hypocrisy of Our Democracy, Part IV

I don’t want to hear anyone else complaining about Rush Limbaugh wanting President Obama’s policies to fail after reading question #10 from this Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll taken a few months before the 2006 elections (h/t American Thinker):

 10. Regardless of how you voted in the presidential election, would you say you want President Bush to succeed or not?

SCALE: 1. Yes, want him to succeed 2. No, do not want him to succeed 3. (Don’t know)

Yes No (Don’t know)

8-9 Aug 06 63% 32 5

Democrats 40% 51 9

Republicans 90% 7 2




In case those numbers aren’t clear, 32% of those polled wanted Bush to fail, including 51% of all Democrats.

By comparison, Rush’s claimed audience of 20 million listeners amounts to about 6.5% of the current US population (projected as of 5 this evening).

Keep your false outrage to yourselves.

  1. I believe it doesn’t matter which President’s policies being judged, hoping that they will fail is irresponsible of any American. This negative thought pattern is stupid and unpatriotic whether speaking about Democrats or Republicans.
