Why are people still questioning why someone would wish failure on Obama's policies when many LIBERAL DEMOCRATS wanted the war in Iraq to fail.

Democrat, Jack Murtha-"Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them. And they killed innocent civilians in cold blood. " (about an incident that the troops were investigated and FOUND INNOCENT)

Democrat, Joe Biden September 9, 2007: “I mean, the truth of the matter is that, that the — America’s — this administration’s policy and the surge are a failure...

  • What you have posted doesn't say anything about them "wanting" to fail. You imply that that is there intent.

  • I do wish failure to his policies. I pray that socialized healthcare does not pass and his wealth redistribution comes back to bite him in the butt too and if he considers that a personal failure....then so be it.

  • All of your quotes fail to prove a DESIRE for failure. Rather, they illustrate the common point of view that the war IS a failure. Big difference.

    Wish I could see things the way you do, I see nothing but implied ideas to these situations.

  • Thanks, grly. I was hoping someone would do some research and back up this issue. The liberal media and the politicians who were out in front continually searching for failure, and found every dot and dittle to claim Bush as such.

    So the pot can't call the kettle black?
