Skip to comments.Democrats begin waiting for George W. Bush to fail

Among Democrats, there are two views as to how to pull this off now. The popular view is the one that looks to Bush making mistakes and, perhaps, to an economic downturn that will make swing voters long for the days of Democratic prosperity under Clinton.

WOW.that about sums it up. Who ever found this gets a keg.
Pingaroo to the RUSH thread for this thread and other posted link.
Remember the Florida vote debacle? The dims didn’t even wait for GWB to even take office before the started their hopes for a failed Presidency...
And now that BDS is running out of steam, they’ve come up with RDS.
Can someone send this to un-funny man jon stewart also? He accused Rush of treason too.
There is the difference. The MSM is complicit.
Thanks, have to save this one
These psychopaths actively poisoned the airwaves and newswires for eight years with their denegration of President Bush and daily declarations of their hopes that he fail.
Their mendacity knows no boundaries.
Conservative leadership needs to take center stage and throw the RINOs an occasional bone. Not the other way around. Conservatism didn't lose the last two elections. RINOism did.
I heard the first complaining from Palm Beach County before 1 pm on the day of the election.
The Left leaves nothing to chance. If it happens and it's bad for the Right then you can bet your bottom dollar it was set up by the Left.
If they spent one-tenth as much time trying to make America great as they do trying to screw the Right we would be back on top of the heap again in no time at all!
Of course they are. The MSM is nothing more than the PR branch of the dim-0 party.
DEMOCRATS THINK AHEAD TO ‘02, ‘04 ELECTIONS

Despite lofty rhetoric from the party’s elected officials about the need for bipartisanship, the operatives who fight the battles at ground level are eager to take on Bush and the Republicans in the next round.
Paul Begala, a former aide to President Clinton, said Bush will make an “enormously tempting” target in 2004.
“Presidents are successful if they are feared, more than loved, more than respected,” Begala said.
“We Democrats didn’t love or respect President Reagan, but we feared him because we knew he could trounce us. And the Republicans, I know, were terrified of Clinton. They didn’t like or respect him but were scared to death of him.”
He added, “Nobody in either party fears Bush.”
This may be a way to ease the sting of Republican control of the White House, Senate and House for the first time in 48 years. But some Democrats insist they are better off with Bush in the Oval Office than they would have been with Vice President Al Gore.
Bush, the thinking goes, lost the popular vote, creating a cloud over his administration.
Democratic loyalists, upset over the outcome, could be energized for races in 2002 and 2004. And the incoming president faces an unruly, divided Congress that could make it hard to govern.
Republicans dismissed such predictions, saying Bush can overcome the challenges.
“He will be a very strong leader,” said Mark Pfeifle, spokesman for the Republican National Committee.
“He has proved in the state of Texas that he can work with Democrats. He was only the second Republican governor of Texas. He had a Democrat-dominated legislature, and he came out with significant victories and accomplishments.”
Pfeifle characterized the Democrats’ comments as partisan jabs.
“These are hired warriors, or another term might be political hacks which I consider a term of endearment; I am one who live and die for the battle,” Pfeifle said.
Since Gore’s concession speech, prominent Democrats have been quick to say they wish Bush well for the sake of the nation.
Gore himself said, “What remains of partisan rancor must now be put aside, and may God bless his stewardship of this country.”
But there is little question that some Democrats hope Bush fails .

There has been outright collusion on news stories with the DNC in the past election cycles. American Pravda.
