“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?”
