An Honest Leftist

“You’re damn right I wanted the Iraq war to fail.”

Best of the Tube Tomorrow Morning
We’re scheduled to appear on a “Fox and Friends” political panel tomorrow at around 7:15 a.m. ET. If you’re an extremely early riser, or a West Coast insomniac, tune in and see us on the Fox News Channel.

An Honest Leftist
Back when George W. Bush was president, this column would occasionally observe that many on the Democratic left were hoping that America would lose the Iraq war. This seemed to us an obvious observation, but it never failed to scandalize our loyal left-wing readership. But a Lee Stranahan, writing on the Puffington Host, admits it: “You’re damn right I wanted the Iraq war to fail.”

Well, two cheers to Stranahan for his honesty. (We’ll explain below why we’re withholding the third cheer.) What makes this acknowledgment even better is that Stranahan offers it in the course of defending the good faith of a man who, now that Bush is an ex-president, is the left’s favorite demon figure, Rush Limbaugh.

Responding to Limbaugh’s speech last week at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Stranahan writes:

Limbaugh wants Barack Obama’s economic policies to fail. He said it, he said it again, and he said it again at CPAC. Limbaugh was quickly accused of treason, more or less, and now he says he doesn’t understand what all the outrage is about. All he said was that he hopes the economic recovery plan fails. . . .

I wanted the Bush policy on Iraq to fail because the war and the ideas it was based were in complete opposition to my basic principles about how The United States should use its wealth and power. . . . Not because I hate our country or hate the troops but for the exact opposite reason–because I love my country and I value the lives of the people sworn to protect it. If you opposed the war, I bet you feel the same way. . . .

I believe that Limbaugh wants the president to fail because he loves the country, too. . . .

I assume Rush Limbaugh feels the same way, more or less, about the president’s economic plan. I bet he simply can’t bear the idea of a world where massive government spending is effective and therefore popular because “it works.”

I will say that Mr. Stranahan is honest and for that we say thank you for doing what the rest of the Left and the MSM is not willing to do.  And that is, put Rush’s quote into context.

God Bless,
