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.”

I don’t want his policies enacted. Is that clear enough?

This is a gift to Republicans, if only they will view it as such and take advantage of it.

And if that limp-wrist McConnell were smart, he’d immediately stand up and repeat just exactly what Rush said the other day. But don’t count of it. After all, Mitchie voted FOR the first stimulus.

Catch 22.. How do you fight back?

You repeat, early and often, "Democrats are destroying America with Socialist policies. Any bill the Democrats or Obama want passed into law they can do so.They need no help from Republicans. The Democrats and Obama are in power, they are the majority in Congress."

Reid: Senate GOP wants Obama to fail.

I wonder how he arrived at this conclusion
Well, we know one thing - Reid listens to Rush. He has no original thoughts of his own.

Are we expected to be so naive, acquiescent, or masochistic so that we should wholeheartedly embrace Obama’s relentless and ruthless efforts to take away our individual liberty, to destroy the free market and capitalist system, and dismantle the Constitution?

If we didn’t want Obama to fail, we should be declared lunatics and sent to a mental hospital.

Lets give the RATS credit. Limbaugh handed them a weapon and they are using it to full advantage. Republicans are now on the defensive, clueless on how to respond and running scared (as usual). Contrast this with the Repubs who couldn’t or wouldn’t mount a decent attack on the RAT traitors who shamelessly gave aid and comfort our enemy during a time of war. Imagine that, a party so pathetic and inept that it was unable to take advantage of Rat TREASON.

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? We fight back by saying he has already failed and point to the market's tanking since he was elected. Over and over again just like them claim he has already failed. The administration has failed to instill confidence in the invenstment community and has failed to bring about an economic recovery.

Well, Dingy Harry...a real leader would know how to convince them to follow the brilliant strategy that BO has proposed: The way to fix a $1.4 Trillion budget shortfall is to spend $3.2 Trillion more, even though we don’t know if we can borrow that much from our enemies.
I’m sure you can explain the wisdom of that so that Specter, Snowe, and Collins can vote with the congealed Democrat brains on this issue.

Reid: Senate GOP wants Obama to fail

I don't recall Reid being out there, banging the drum, and rooting for President Bush to be successful. In Iraq or anywhere else.

WE WANT OBAMA TO FAIL, because we want America to succeed.

Or

If you love your country, you want 0bama to fail

What first stimulus bill are you talking about?

You make a good point. I, too, share the idea that today’s GOP is hardly a conservative enclave. I do, however, believe they can become that, again.

If not the GOP, then conservatives need to find a new home...the Constitution Party, maybe?

The Libertarians? I must admit I’m attracted to their economic policies, and the principled stand on individual freedom. Can’t say I care for some of their views relative to foreign policy, but I’m willing to talk about it.

The AIP? Keyes comes off a tinfoil hat kind of guy, sometimes. But, again, there are some things to like...

Sadly, it seems that far too many otherwise intelligent conservatives get absolutely caught up at the abortion debate, and have made that the single most important litmus test issue against which to measure ALL conservatives.

It is, though, time to take back the country, IMO.

Note to Reid, all of us in the GOP want Obama;s policies to fail because you see they are anti-American and we want our country to survive you idiots.

Seems like it’s working toward that end...

And, not a moment too soon, IMO. There needs to be a grand clearing house of conservative thought and ACTION.

FR is an ideal starting point.

It’s time to take back the country.

With the exception of three alleged Republicans named Specter, Collins and Snowe I think that Reid may finally be catching on to the truth.
