(Newser) – Pat Robertson thinks Barack Obama has plenty of flaws—he accuses him of letting Nancy Pelosi write the stimulus bill, for starters—but he's got no patience for Rush Limbaugh's hope that the new president fails. "That was a terrible thing to say," Robertson tells US News and World Report. "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."
