  • September 11, 2001 (Just minutes before the attack occurred): James Carville, Democratic Strategist - “I certainly hope he doesn’t succeed.” (regarding President Bush)

    Media Outrage: None

  • August 9, 2006: Fox News Poll asking Democrats "would you say you
    want President Bush to succeed or not?" wherein 51% of Democrats said "No."

    Media Outrage: None

  • January 25, 2009: Rush Limbaugh - "I hope he fails." (regarding President Obama)

    Media Outrage: Plentiful. In fact, it was the number 2 news story in America last week (beaten out only by the economy) with pundits, politicians, and punks alike calling for everything from a ban on Limbaugh, to the revocation of his radio license, and all the way to calls for him to be hanged for treason. An effort that the White House admits was both coordinated and "explicitly authorized" within its walls by Obama's advisers.

  • Egregious double-standard anyone?
