SHOCKED, SHOCKED

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“Here we go again. Rush Lim­baugh is pub­lic en­emy No. 1,” Jonah Gold­berg writes in the Los An­ge­les Times.

“Lib­eral blog­gers and me­dia chin-stro­kers are aghast at Lim­baugh’s state­ment that he hopes Barack Obama fails,” Mr. Gold­berg said.

“Well, given what Obama wants to do, I hope he fails, too. Of course I want the fi­nan­cial cri­sis to end — who doesn’t? But Obama’s agenda is much more au­da­cious. Pretty much ev­ery ma­jor news out­let in the coun­try has said as a mat­ter of ob­jec­tive anal­y­sis that Obama wants to re­peal the legacy of Ron­ald Rea­gan and re­make the coun­try as a Euro­pean wel­fare state. And yet peo­ple are shocked that con­ser­va­tives, Lim­baugh in­cluded, want Obama to fail in this ef­fort?”
