House Republican Whip Eric Cantor [R-VA] does not subscribe to Rush Limbaugh’s hope that President Obama fails. Yesterday on ABC’s This Week, he was asked whether he subscribes to Rush Limbaugh’s hope. And he responded by saying “absolutely not . I don’t think anyone wants anything to fail right now. We have such challenges. What we need to do is put forth solutions to the problems that real families are facing today.”

Apparently, Cantor hasn’t been paying attention. Limbaugh reiterated his hope that Obama fails on Saturday. In fact , the list of right-wingers who share Limbaugh’s hope is growing. Just this week, Rick Santorum declared, “Absolutely we hope his policies fail, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay responded, “Well, exactly right. I don’t want this for our nation,” while Michelle Malkin said, “ yes, I hope that fails.” On Friday, Limbaugh crowed, “…every Republican in this country wants Obama to fail, but none of them have the guts to say so; I am willing to say it.” According to Limbaugh, Cantor must be one of those Republicans without the guts to say what he really feels.”
