Flashback: 2004, Matthews wanted Bush to fail?

That was then, this is now. From Hardball the day after the re-election of George W Bush term 2. Just to refresh your memory, Kerry was supposed to win, beginning the big progressive comeback. It didn’t happen and so the left began their “frog march” to frog march the President out of the White House in cuffs.

But I ask you lefties, how is this any different than Rush Limbaugh’s “I want him to fail”. Limbaugh wanted Obama’s policies to fail, and I do too. I believe in the free market. The young President believes in big government.

But for Matthews and the gang, policy failure wasn’t enough … impeachment! Sorry about the video. I only saved the audio back in the day.


And here’s what Rush said. Me thinks the Matthews bite makes Rush look pretty mild.
