AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

Opposing Socialism, Marxism and Communism Still Apparently a Confusing Concept for Some ‘Conservatives’

I am simply at a loss anymore with some “Righty” bloggers. I’m beginning to believe more strongly now that these three semi-major bloggers simply don’t like Rush Limbaugh and are jealous of his influence and so are deliberately joining with the Left in smearing him. Because I really can’t believe these three are this fucking dense.

Via HotAir: Flashback: Minutes before 9/11 attacks, Carville said he hoped Bush wouldn’t succeed

One is that Carville changed his mind instantly once the country shifted to a crisis footing whereas Rush keeps hoping for failure even as the economy disintegrates. 

He keeps hoping for failure of policies that he believes are going to make things worse. This is, for some Ace, AllahPundit, Patterico, et al, apparently a confusing concept.

Bingo. I’m simply baffled why the three stooges, and those who agree with them, simply *still* do not get it.

We have a patient (American economy) who is seriously ill. The Doctor (Obama) wants to do a major operation to completely reconstruct the inner workings of the patient’s body in order to ‘save’ him. The patient has had this serious illness before and previous doctors have helped cure him by doing certain procedures. Yet, this doctor wants to ignore that and do something drastically different and more extreme, that will probably make things even worse and has been proven to fail in the past when tried on other patients.

Now, any logical thinking person would hope that the doctor fails in his attempt to perform such surgery and those urging for the old ways to cure the illness will succeed. But those such as Ace and AllahPundit and Patterico translate that to mean that those wishing for the doctor to fail in performing that surgery are also wishing for the patient to die.

I seriously had no idea that Ace, AllahPundit and Patterico were that dense.

Absolutely spot-on comment:

One is that Carville changed his mind instantly once the country shifted to a crisis footing whereas Rush keeps hoping for failure even as the economy disintegrates.

The economy is distintegrating because Obama is currently succeeding in getting his agenda through. If he were failing, the economy would be showing signs of life.

And again, I just am baffled as to how some conservatives can’t understand this concept.

And that was the damn point of Rush saying he hoped Obama failed before Obama was even inaugurated! Because he wanted Obama to fail in implementing socialism, communism and Marxism in this country! What the bloody hell is so difficult for people to understand about this??!!

Excellent. Someone else who at least gets it:

The economy is disintegrating AP BECAUSE of Obama’s reckless policies. AP not only misrepresents what Rush says but creates a ’straw man’ argument (economy disintegrates) that has NO RELATION to what Rush ever said.

The timing of what Rush said is important. When asked about his hope for the administration, Rush said he hoped he fails. He has, so far, succeeded and the country has suffered, at least economically. So far, Rush has been borne out. The timing is a point worth making.

Though, I well suspect that no one’s minds will be changed now. This issue has become one of pride and prejudice.

And another:

Two potential points of distinction for the left here. One is that Carville changed his mind instantly once the country shifted to a crisis footing whereas Rush keeps hoping for failure even as the economy disintegrates.

Allah, I’m starting to think that your problem is neurological.

The second point is the one Patterico hits on in this post, i.e. the difference between hoping Obama fails at implementing his agenda and hoping that his agenda fails after it’s implemented.

Patterico’s problem seems to be congenital.

Once more, for the hard-of-thinking:

Lenin succeeded.
Lenin’s policies were all failures.
Russia suffered through hell for decades.

Do you think that Russia would have been better off if Lenin had FAILED?

This is getting to be so pathetic … Get a grip, Allah.

I agree. This is getting pathetic. Instead of hoping our asshole President and Democrat Party fail in implementing socialism, half our side is criticizing the other half for wanting socialism to fail. Brilliant.
