Like many Republicans before her (Tom Delay, Michelle Malkin, Rick Santorum, Rush Limbaugh), Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has jumped on the bandwagon of FAIL to emphatically endorse her wish for failure of President Barack Obama’s policies.  Bar none.

Bachmann spoke on radio with Fargo conservative talker Scott Hennen.

Hennen: Is that what Republicans are doing? Are we rooting for failure…?

Bachmann:”We’re hoping that President Obama’s policies don’t succeed exactly as you said.

Really, Ms. Bachmann?  Regardless of rhyme or reason, you’re willing to sweep all of this president’s initiatives onto the cutting floor simply because you don’t like the man?  Is this the behavior of a rational, thoughtful leader who has the best interest of all Americans at heart?  Of course not.

This sad rash of “Party before Country” thinking is nothing more than an old political “us against them” ploy utilized solely to take full advantage of the willful ignorance of one’s followers.  There can be absolutely no shades of gray when indoctrinating the masses to defend hard battle lines; this is a lesson well learned and played by GOP leaders and commentators of late, and it appears to be widely effective even in its elementary transparency.

To quote Pink Floyd, “Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd, smiling.”  The fact that the crowd is listening should be concerning us all.
