I've always thought Pat Robertson was a decent guy but, he tends to come out of left field unexpectedly sometimes. Like when he was interviewed recently about Obama's start as CiC.....
Interviewer: So you don't subscribe to Rush Limbaugh's "I hope he fails" school of thought?
Pat: "That was a terrible thing to say. I mean, he's the president of all the country. If he succeeds, the country succeeds. And if he doesn't, it hurts us all. Anybody who would pull against our president is not exactly thinking rationally."
Pat's playing the role of the useful-idiot populist he adopts every now and then. He's a traditional conservative but, once in a while he goes along with the the liberal crowd by stating whatever is popular at the time. How he can intentionally misrepresent Rush's comments on Obama is outrageous. I agree with Rush, that if success to Obama means that he plunges the country further toward a European-style, socialist, nanny-State then I hope he fails miserably too. Pat's just talking out of his rear end again.
Here's Robertson squeezing out another pearl of wisdom.
