Reid: Senate GOP wants Obama to fail By: Alex Isenstadt March 3, 2009 02:53 PM EST

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid put it in no uncertain terms today: Senate Republicans want Barack Obama to fail.

“It’s very clear they’ve made a decision they want President Obama to fail,” Reid told reporters, listing of a series of Obama proposals Republicans have lined up against, including the $410 billion omnibus spending package before the Senate this week.

When asked to name specific Senate Republicans who wanted Obama to fail, Reid would only say a “number of Republicans.”

“It’s very clear,” Reid said. “Some have said so, others have acted accordingly.”

If the Senate were a bank we would have to close it.

They damn well BETTER be working for his policies to fail.

Otherwise they might as well pass a law renaming our country to USSA.

Dem talking point: conservatives want Obama to fail because they are racist.

Conservative talking point: We want Obama to fail because he is a moron. :D

Reid = thin-skinned whimpy liar

And, Obama is batting a thousand for failure. To date, I can't think of anything that he's done right.

We want Obama to fail because he does not believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. He does not believe in America.

Obama’s success is the success of a tyrant.... not good.

If 0bama's success results in the USSA, then I hope the Republicans want him to fail.

I doubt if they have the stones to try to stop him.

It seems to me that this is PRECISELY what we need. We need a very clear distinction between the LibTard insanity and preservation of the America we love. That absolutely should means that partisan politics is the norm in Washington.
If the Pubbies can’t effectively argue their ideology, the conservative philosophy, they deserve to be tossed in the dumper, and replaced with a party that CAN do the job.

It’s time to take back the country.

As far as I can tell, only three Republicans (RINOS) want Obama’s Socialist Agenda to succeed.

....of course I want that clown to fail and fail quickly before he hurts the country even more.

....folks, are you starting to understand why the Klan took hold in the South during Reconstruction?....how an alliance of crooked white opportunists and Negro fool politicians began to systematically destroy and loot what ever they touched?....and how eventually Southerners decided to take back their land.

Saying you want Obama to fail is like saying you want a thug who intends to invade your home rob you blind and enslave your children to fail.

I don’t see the problem.

Umm...yeah. Opposing a president whose policies you believe to be wrong is the duty of a responsible Senator. Whatever happened to "dissent is the highest form of patriotism"?

That is exactly right and any red blooded American who isn't doing all he or she can to insure the failure of his policies is complicit in all that follows!

I support the Presidency, but not the President.

Progression toward Marxism is not my measure of success, nor does it allow ANY room for bipartisanship.

But of course, I will cheer on any and all that want Obama to fail, and why not Harry you idiot. Harry go have some more kool-aid or some communist cookies.

Of course the Senate GOP wants socialism and anti-capitalism to fail. If they did not want Obama’s revolution to fail they would become RINOs like Collins, Snowe and Spector.

You presume that the GOP is conservative. I think it is easy to see otherwise, after having all 3 Houses from 2000 to 2006, and seeing the many, many RINO's disavow all conservative ideas since 2006, etc.

The Democrats want to make it look like capitalism has failed, so they will have a good pretext for ushering in full-bodied socialist collectivism. And so far, they’re doing a great job killing the economy! They’re doing such a good job, there’s no need or reason to “hope” that they fail to save the economy: Their failure is guaranteed by their own actions, which have either been excruciatingly stupid, or else diabolically clever!

Why would anyone wish, hope or want Obama to fail and who are these people? It is coterminous with wanting the sky to be blue or the sun to be hot. Obama has failed (past tense) and is a failed president.

Every bill he has signed into law and every proposal he has made has been a failure of gargantuan proportion. Every Socialist policy he intends to unleash on America has already been tried and invariably fails each time it is tried. Obama is a failure and the owner of a failed presidency, in record time, unprecedented arrogance in tow.

This is them seeding the media so that when obama does fail, they can blame the republicans.. Watch for more of this rhetoric.

They always plant and seed thoughts and messages to cover all bases. If they succeed, they can take credit since it was obama’s plan. If they fail. They can say they failed because the republicans wouldn’t help....

Catch 22.. How do you fight back?
