(WASHINGTON TIMES) Former President Bill Clinton said during a recent televised news interview that he was shocked by the message Republicans were sending in their fight against President Obama’s signature health care reform: We hope it fails.

That means the GOP is “begging for America to fail,” he said, during a “This Week” interview with ABC host George Stephanopoulos.

“I’ve never seen a time — can you remember a time in your lifetime when a major political party was just sitting around, begging for America to fail? … I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I’ll be shocked if it fails,” Mr. Clinton said.
