Gov. Butch Otter, speaking to the Idaho Press Club on Friday, was asked if 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.”
