Patriotism defined by candidate you prefer

In response to Mr. Williams commentary on Rush Limbaugh last week: The short quote, “I hope he fails,” is invitation to a wide variety of interpretation.

From your outrage, it seems you considered the meaning as “ruins the country” or something to that effect, but if you look at the transcript, it is easy to determine its exact meaning.

Your source is surely the overly-biased media whose fervent “coverage” conveniently failed on every level to touch on what Rush said before and after those four words.

What conservative would wish that extreme liberalism shape our country’s future? That is exactly what Rush said was meant by the comment, and not later in reflection, but during the very same show segment in which he said it.

Liberals enjoyed such unfettered opportunity, served up by the most biased media coverage this country has ever seen, to freely shove their hate-filled vitriol down America’s throat on Bush and the Republicans that you would think it was time for them to sit back and enjoy the fruition of the Obama presidency.

Instead, the Left Machine is ramping up its efforts to shush (The Fairness Doctrine) and shame any conservative into oblivion.

Before the election, if you didn’t support Obama you were a racist. Now if you don’t agree with his policies, you’re unpatriotic.

Yet those same standards do not apply to criticism of conservatives. Did you happen to write in your opposition to president-hating during the Bush administration? I didn’t think so.
