Pat Robertson recently told Dan Gilgoff that, while he doesn’t approve of many of President Obama’s cabinet appointments and his handling of the stimulus legislation, he hopes that Obama succeeds because if “he succeeds, the country succeeds”:
It’s not over, but I still want to give him the benefit of every doubt, and I definitely hope he succeeds. It wouldn’t be good for Americans for him not to. We don’t want a president who fails at domestic and foreign policy.
So you don’t subscribe to Rush Limbaugh’s “I hope he fails” school of thought?
That was a terrible thing to say. I mean, he’s the president of all the country. If he succeeds, the country succeeds. And if he doesn’t, it hurts us all. Anybody who would pull against our president is not exactly thinking rationally.
You know that the Republican Party and its agenda are in disarray when Pat Robertson is the only person within its ranks who is capable of sounding reasonable.
