Are opponents of Obama's economic agenda and attack on liberty wrong to "hope Obama fails"?
Our constitution and our republic are set up precisely so that citizens (voters) can "check the ... career" of politicians who, through "artful misrepresentations," stir up "irregular passion" that lead people to accept candidates whose policies they later "lament and condemn."
Sometimes, politicians "succeed" in pulling the wool over the eyes of the citizens, leading them to lend support to policies that harm the people. In such cases, something must be done to interrupt and "suspend" the harm done by the people against themselves.
Every two years, the voters can "flunk" politicians who deserve a "failing grade."
Will Obama "succeed" in forcing through his far left agenda? I hope he fails. As James Madison wrote in 1788, in Federalist #63:
"[T]here are particular moments in public affairs when the people, stimulated by some irregular passion, or some illicit advantage, or misled by the artful misrepresentations of interested men, may call for measures which they themselves will afterwards be the most ready to lament and condemn. In these critical moments, how salutary will be the interference of some temperate and respectable body of citizens, in order to check the misguided career, and to suspend the blow meditated by the people against themselves, until reason, justice, and truth can regain their authority over the public mind?"
