Schumer: Some Republicans "want the economy to actually fail" (HURL!)
The Hill ^ | September 8, 2011 | Justin Sink

Posted on 09/08/2011 6:08:37 AM PDT by maggief

Sen. Charles Schumer (D - NY) said Thursday morning that he believed that Republicans in Congress would rather see President Obama defeated than economic improvement that would benefit the country as a whole.

"I think that is true. I think that is absolutely true. I'm sure are some on their side who would say that of people on our side, but I believe that is all too true," Schumer said on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

Schumer contrasted Republican opposition to the president's economic policies to Democrats who were against the war in Iraq during George W. Bush's presidency.

"During the Iraq war, many of us came to be opposed to the Iraq war, but we still wanted America to win… You look at the analogy today you get the feeling that there are some that want the economy to actually fail to prove their point. That's a very bad thing."

Schumer's comments double down on criticism he levied at Republicans during the debt ceiling debate in June.

"If they oppose even something so suited to their tastes ideologically, it shows that they're just opposing anything that helps create jobs," Schumer said. "It almost makes you wonder if they aren't trying to slow down the economic recovery for political gain."

I would say it is a little late Chucky. Obama has made sure it failed.

Obama and the Democrats are doing everything that they can to hold back, control, hamper, regulate and steal from businesses and those who start, own and run them. They are doing everything possible to destroy the economy. Then they scream JOBS, JOBS, JOBS.

Therefore, if the economy doesn't improve, it's the Republican's fault.
Schmucky is so clever.

Well I wouldn’t mind if it didn’t get any better for say...14 months. The G.O.P. is under no requirement to help Obama get re-elected.

The graph source is Mitt’s Jobs Plan, but there are other sources out there.

And hows about the 50,000+ people NYS added to the payroll during a hiring freeze. GOP didn’t do that, Chuckie....

Schumer is so GD weaselly and evil he could be a model for a medieval gargoyle. I assume that everyone wants their opponent to fail. Not the country. In this case I do not want Obama’s socialist agenda to succeed- because it is bad for the country.

Hey Chuck, knowing that adding dog crap is going to ruin the ice cream isn’t the same thing as wanting bad ice cream.

Yes Chuck, we know that socialism is a failure. The outcome is easily predictable.

You throw the rock at the window. We tell everyone that the glass is going to break. You tell everyone that we wanted the glass to break.

Lord, I despise socialists.

Why would the T.E.A. party people want the economy to fail?

It already has. This has not been a “double-dip” recession, this has been a DEPRESSION, with the artificial stimulus plans only propping up a corpse.

Time to break out of the depression, and not the way FDR did, by involving us in a global conflict. If the regime in Washington will not lead, and cannot follow the plain writing on the wall, then they should properly get out of the way.

The best thing that the titular head of the now failing obama regime could do in the joint address to Congress is to tender his resignation, and also call upon Joe Biden to offer his resignation.

Anything less is simply shifting around the deck chairs on the Titanic.

If the definition of economic success wasn’t failure of capitalism to UpChuckie, then, his utterances wouldn’t be flatulence? Slavery is the definition of success to the Bolshecrats.

Liberals believe, because they are so much smarter than other people, they can dream up ideal processes and systems and then make them work just by getting or forcing everyone else to cooperate. That is why they can repeat the same unworkable policies over and over again. They don't "fail" because they are just not implemented properly and more has to be done to persuade or force the stupid citizenry to do things properly. The same attitude affects science. They can make God do what they want God to do by forcing the stupid people to follow their brilliant mandates hence the Global Warming hysteria.

Liberals believe that Humanity is God and that Liberals are God's brain.

Wow.

Democrats project much?

Wasn’t it James Carville who actually stated publicly they wanted Bush to fail?

Hmm?

WRONG! They want it to succeed and that can't happen as long as OBOZO is in White House and you and Harry Reid are running the Senate!

in Congress would rather see President Obama defeated than economic improvement that would benefit the country as a whole

This is mantra that they keep spouting intentionally, so leaders like Hoffa can use this same rehtoric to build up "his Union army".

Schumer is a little general who believes: "We Have Three Branches Of Government: The House, The Senate And The President." So he carries water for the influencial Left who controls two of those.

Ms. Waters recruits by "wanting" more money [trillion] to "buy jobs" [cause there is money out there they can't touch] to appease black mothers who's sons don't have a job.

We America to prosper, all its citizens to be able to provide for their families, for America to be strong. That is however, currently not the case. So by that definition, the economy is already failing! It won't turn on a dime with a Republican elected President and with a Republican (conservative) congress, for that too much damage has been done by this administration, but a good start would be to take out the trash that's presently in the Whitehouse!

No you didn't, you treasonous SOB! You and your Democrats did everything you could to make sure we lost in Iraq. You:

Oh, I could go on. But you are a lying, scheming, TRAITOR, Schumer.
