RUSH: The Republicans have finally discovered the word "fail." As you know it was I, El Rushbo, who was the pioneer on this, taking the arrows, publicly, proudly, happily proclaiming, "I hope he fails." He has failed in one sense. He's not failed the way I want him. I wanted him to fail to implement all this stuff. He has implemented it, and it isn't working as he says he wants it to work, therefore it's a failure, although I believe it is working exactly as he wants it to work: the more chaos, the more destruction, the better for more government action to fix whatever is wrong. But anyway, here's the montage. Republicans six months into this finally discover the word "fail."
MCCONNELL: By any standard upon which it was sold to us, now, by that standard it's been a failure.
STEELE: The Obama experiments are not working. So far his experiments in that economic laboratory called Congress have simply failed.
GRAHAM: (phone) I think he'll fail because he's trying to convince America to be something other than America. I don't think he's going to be successful.
RUSH: Do you people remember the heat I took over this from people in my own party? Remember how the State-Run Media was running out there trying to get all these people to distance themselves, "He wants the president to fail." And now it's become standard operating procedure in the Republican Party to call the guy a failure. This is what I mean when I say, ladies and gentlemen, we are on the cutting edge of societal evolution.
