“I thank God every day that it is going down the tubes,” Limbaugh blusters. The "it" in question is the United States of America and Limbaugh is profoundly grateful for any difficulties the nation faces if it creates problems for our President.
Call it sour grapes, call it petty vindictiveness, just don’t call it patriotism, Rush. For Limbaugh the fate of the GOP is clearly more important than the fate of the nation. Limbaugh says he thanks God “every day” that he sees problems for Obama.

It’s a measure of the real difficulties the GOP is currently facing that its all but in name leader can no longer contain himself. This level of rhetoric shows desperation, not strength.
