Otter: Rush isn’t right

When he addressed the Idaho Press Club this morning, Gov. Butch Otter was questioned by Idaho Statesman political columnist Dan Popkey about whether he agreed with radio host Rush Limbaugh recent controversial statement that he hopes President Obama fails. “No,” Otter responded, adding that he hadn’t heard Limbaugh’s speech. “My answer to that’s no, I don’t share that. Spending billions of dollars and getting nothing from it - I think it’d deepen and lengthen and maybe even go into a depression if we failed. So for my part, I’m gonna do all I can to get as many people working … getting ‘em jobs on building bridges and roads and water systems for rural Idaho. … I think we can create a lot of jobs. A person gets a job, that whole family suddenly gains a lot of confidence. … I believe that’s the kind of hope everybody had for the stimulus package when it was first mentioned.”
