Nope. It isn't Rush Limbaugh coming up with that line.
It was Democratic operative James Carville in reference to George Bush. Carville is the smarmy bald-headed guy with the mouth full of collards and fatback who is the Democratic Party's answer to Karl Rove. Carville has had his fingers in the Democratic pie for a long time. He is one of the movers and the shakers, just like Rove.
Carville was joined by Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg, who seemed encouraged by a survey he had just completed that revealed public misgivings about the newly minted president.
"We rush into these focus groups with these doubts that people have about him, and I'm wanting them to turn against him," Greenberg admitted.
The pollster added with a chuckle of disbelief: "They don't want him to fail. I mean, they think it matters if the president of the United States fails."
You'll notice that this is a pollster. Do you think his stuff might be slanted? That last comment of Greenberg's pretty much tells us that he thinks We the People are a bunch of ignorant rubes. We actually think the president matters. Apparently Greenberg doesn't. Do you think he's just in it for the power trip, and the payoff in the background?
Here is the article:
I certainly hope he doesn't succeed
