Pat Robertson denounces Rush Limbaugh’s comments: He’s ‘not exactly thinking rationally.’

In an interview with U.S. News, conservative televangelist Pat Robertson decried the recently-passed economic recovery package as “a disaster,” but emphasized that he wants President Obama to succeed. “We don’t want a president who fails at domestic and foreign policy,” Robertson said, adding that he thought Rush Limbaugh’s “I hope he fails” comment was “a terrible thing to say”:

Last December, Robertson praised Obama for picking a “middle-of-the road Cabinet.” But he has since changed his tune, complaining that Obama is “showing partisanship” through his cabinet appointments.
