Rush: "I Want Obama To Fail"

Well, we now have a new president. Obama has taken the oath of office . . . again, and now we expectantly look to the future. As a Christian, I believe we ought to pray for our president. As a voter, I believe we ought to hope for the best. I've been slowly increasing my tolerance of all things political (I imagine Karen will be doing the same in a few more years). It's been a rough few months, and I don't see it getting much easier any time soon.

So, what should a good conservative's attitude be concerning the new Commander-In-Chief? I humbly refer you to Rush Limbaugh's recent comments. His point is this: If Obama starts surprising everyone and doing good (or even "moderate") things for the country, let's cheer him on. However, if he begins to implement the New Socialist Raw Deal, as he has promised to do on many occasions, why should we want him to succeed? Socialist policy is simply not what America needs. It should be opposed at every turn. I wish him no personal harm; I will pray for him. But I will also pray that he will act with wisdom and humility. And if he does not, I will oppose his efforts so far as I am able.

I concur, and I also pray that when I "oppose his efforts" it's with Christian humility and graciousness. I pray that for all believers actually, because there will be much during this President's term(s) that will need to be opposed. (And I'm not talking about economic policy.)
