Rooting for failure

Another absurdly good post by John Cole of Balloon-Juice:

2001, time of mild economic downturn but with a large budget surplus projected as far as the eyes can see, and Democrats stated the tax cuts are bad policy and should not be adopted.

2009, during two wars, a financial disaster, an economic crisis and massive unemployment and trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see, and the Republicans and Limbaugh are rooting for Obama to fail so they can regain some political power.

    Honestly who roots for failure of the President when the people they are supposed to be looking out for will suffer for that failure.
    This type of thing makes me think of Republicans as self serving hate mongers with surpressed fetishes.
