Quote of the Day: Pat Robertson Notes Rush Limbaugh Not Thinking Rationally

I’m always on the look out for signs of sanity from the right. I don’t agree with Pat Robertson very often, but he is right on this answer in an interview with U.S. News & World Report:

Q: So you don’t subscribe to Rush Limbaugh’s “I hope he fails” school of thought?

ROBERTSON: 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.

Maybe its the OxyContin.

    This is awesome. I am totally into the power struggles of the GOP.

    DB,

    Unfortunately this power struggle is of little value (unless your goal is to see their self destruction, which I could understand in light of their recent behavior.)

    Hoping to see the reemergence of a meaningful two party system the power struggles on the right which I’m most interested are those involving more rational conservatives who want to reduce the influence of the neocons and religious right. The problem with a battle between Limbaugh and Roberts is that, while I might agree with Roberts in this particular case, a Republican party in the image of either side of this dispute is not acceptable.

    For sure. I would like to see a meaningful two-party system as well, but I think that the GOP will not change it’s attitude until the party cleans house and removes the cancer. They celebrate the far-right of the party and curse anyone “not conservative enough.” They have the single-path mentality of a 3rd party, yet the influence of a major party. That isn’t conducive to the party or the system. I would definitely like to them reemerge as a party that is inclusive and has a broad range of policy stances, much like the Democrats do right now. As of now, they are exclusive and take an extreme conservative view on way too many issues.
