Jindal defends Limbaugh, stands proudly with the Republicans who want Obama to fail

“Fail” is the motto of the GOP these days. Led by Rush Limbaugh, Republicans blatantly want Obama to fail, which means the country fails. It’s pretty fricking disgusting.

The latest defender of the fail strategy is the GOP’s star speaker, Bobby Jindal. While Obama was answering tough questions about the nation’s future, Jindal was partying it up with a bunch of GOP members of Congress. And, Jindal was espousing the policy of failure:

It’s OK for Republicans to want President Obama to fail if they think he’s jeopardizing the country, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal told members of his political party Tuesday night

Gov. Bobby Jindal is offering a spirited defense of Republicans who say they want President Obama to fail.

Jindal described the premise of the question — “Do you want the president to fail?” — as the “latest gotcha game” being perpetrated by Democrats against Republicans.

“Make no mistake: Anything other than an immediate and compliant, ‘Why no sir, I don’t want the president to fail,’ is treated as some sort of act of treason, civil disobedience or political obstructionism,” Jindal said at a political fundraiser attended by 1,200 people. “This is political correctness run amok.”

Since conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said that he hoped that Obama would fail, Republicans have been pressed by Democrats and the media about Limbaugh’s comments.

Jindal, a potential 2012 presidential candidate, told the Republican audience he would “not be brow beaten on this, and I will not kowtow to their correctness.”

Now, the GOP is used to failure. George Bush was a disaster as President. Obama has to deal with so many major issues because of Bush’s failed policies. But look where that left the nation. That may be acceptable to the Limbaugh Republicans, but it’s not good for the rest of us.

The DNC’s Press Secretary, Hari Sevugan, took Jindal to task today:

“We understand that Governor Jindal has had some problems with public speaking lately, but turning to Rush Limbaugh to be your new speechwriter doesn’t help. What we know has failed is the reflexive partisan politics of the past that Rush Limbaugh and his Republican party continue to be mired in. Rather than rooting for failure, we urge the Republican party to play a constructive role in moving the country forward and offer a budget proposal”
