"We want the president to fail!"

Nope. Not Rush Limbaugh.

Nope. Not Anne Coulter.

Nope. Not the RNC.

51% of Democrats, according to a poll conducted by FoxNews back in August of 2006.

An August 2006 poll conducted by FOX News/Opinion Dynamics showed 51 percent of Democrats did not want Bush to succeed. Thirty-four percent of independents also did not want Bush to succeed.

By comparison, 90 percent of Republicans said at the time that they wanted Bush to succeed, and 40 percent of Democrats said the same.

Conservative radio talk show host Limbaugh says he doesn't want the economy to fail -- just Obama's policies. But his comments last month at the Conservative Political Action Conference drew sharp criticism from the White House.

After CPAC, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel told CBS' "Face the Nation" that Limbaugh's stance was the "wrong philosophy for America."


Rahm "The Fish" Emanuel. Yep. Send dead fish to those with whom you disagree. Play the junior edition of "The Godfather" while gouging a steak knife into the table. Yep. That's the correct philosophy for American.

Now Obama and Emanuel want the rest of the world to join in The Great Giveaway. Fortunately, the rest of the world, Europe in particular, doesn't seem nearly as enthusiastic about that as the Obamanians would like to see:

U.S. to push for global stimulus

It isn't enough for the U.S. to give it all away. We now want the rest of the world to follow suit:

Washington's focus is at odds with France, Germany and other European nations that want the Group of 20 summit on April 2 to focus on rewriting rules governing financial markets. These nations say lax regulation was a major cause of the financial crisis and want to tighten their grip on hedge funds and private-equity firms.
