David Vitter: Hoping Louisiana Families Continue To Struggle... Just So He Can Say I TOLD YOU SO!

Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) agreed with Limbaugh on Tuesday.

On his radio show last week, Rush Limbaugh, the "unofficial leader" of the Republican Party, declared that it was a "dirty little secret" that "every Republican in this country wants Obama to fail." "None of them have the guts to say so," added Limbaugh

“I hope [Obama] fails in advancing leftist policy that I strongly disagree with,” Vitter said. “I think what [Limbaugh] was saying was largely what I am saying.”

Really, Who in their right mind would say that they hope that the President's recovery efforts fail?  Whenever here in America people are struggling, companies are struggling, and the American people are tired of this suffering.  In Washington DC Louisiana Senator David Vitter says the he hopes Obama's policies fail.  Senator, I am not a liberal or a conservative at the end of the day whenever I turn on my television and continue to see jobs lost.  I am not into putting a label before the American people.  I do not care if I call myself a Democrat, at the end of the day after watching all of this suffering, I would put aside all of the labels: liberal, conservative, Republican, Democrat, or any other term that is supposed to represent an assumed way of thinking.  I would say that if someone from an opposite party affiliation offered new solutions (whenever old ones have failed) and had a vision for these struggling families, I would not care which party affiliation they selected on their voter registration, all I would care about is the betterment of Louisiana and America.  Senator, you represent me, my family, Louisiana, and you hold such an honorable position in our Government.  Please represent me the way a forty-eight-year-old elected Senator should and not in a close-minded, robotic, Republican machine fashion.  Show Louisiana that whenever you go to Washington DC you are fighting for us and are not just a Republican Puppet.

What Limbaugh and Vitter said (and I happen to agree with) is that they hope that Obama's leftist agenda fails. That's a far cry from saying that they hope that the economy doesn't recover. When the economy recovers, it will be in spite of Obama's policies, not because of them.

I will provide you with the quotes exactly.

"I disagree fervently with the people on our [Republican] side of the aisle who have caved and who say, 'Well, I hope he succeeds.'"

"So I'm thinking of replying to the guy (when referring to a request from a journalist asking Limbaugh to write 400 words explaining what his hope was for the Obama Administration), 'Okay, I'll send you a response, but I don't need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.'"

"every Republican in this country wants Obama to fail." "None of them have the guts to say so," added Limbaugh

“I think what [Limbaugh] was saying was largely what I am saying.”

Seriously, I believe that they clearly stated what they meant.

Sorry. I don't follow Limbaugh or Vitter. I was responding only to what you said in your original post.
