But now he's gone one step too far. Rather than hoping that Obama fails in his pursuit of his policies, he's now hoping for the policies themselves to fail. He's not hoping that the Republicans stop Obama, but that Obama's policies fail to achieve the intended effect.
"I want everything he's doing to fail... I want the stimulus package to fail.... I do not want this to succeed."
What is the purpose of the stimulus package? To avert a disastrously deep recession, and return the American economy to the prosperity creating juggernaut that it once was. And he wants the package to fail to achieve that purpose.
That's no longer rooting against Obama. That's rooting against America. That's rooting against the American people, who don't have a job they can't lose like Rush.
