James Carville Says Obama Has Been ‘Misled’ By Advisers; Encourages Him to ‘Fire Some People - Video
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | May 26, 2010 | Michael

Posted on 05/26/2010 4:29:56 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of James Carville saying Obama has been “misled” by his advisers and that “somebody’s head has to roll” over the BP oil spill. Carville encouraged Obama to “fire some people,” and said that if he appears “detached,” this could end up being “worse than Katrina” for him.

Carville went ballistic this morning.

IMHO, the Clintons are about to Release the Hounds.

They smell blood. Watch Hillary.

Best,

Let him fire people....this won’t solve the oil spill either. It will just further display Obama’s incompetence.

No misleading here. His “staff” is completely competent and doing their job splendidly. Karl Marx, Stalin, Mussolini, Alinski would agree.

Mislead - MRRA!!

King Obama selected his advisors because they think exactly like him. No dimocrat president has done differently. Additionally King Obama is more radical than any of his advisors - that is how radicals select their leadership, both internal and external.

What we are seeing is the mainstream diocrats finally realizing what they have done to their party. This is nothing more than attempting to lay survival groundworks for 2016 and beyond. Even the Snake realize that 2012 has become a lost cause.

Carville doesn't get it. The 'advisors' are running the show while Obama enjoys the perks. Someone has to make those tough decisions while Obama is out on the golf course.

Barack Obama is the laziest President this nation has ever had.

I dislike Obama as much as anyone, but what can the federal government do? Does anyone work for the government that knows more about offshore drilling than BP? Personally, I think we need to stoke this fire and prove government is the problem, not the solution.

Obama is never responsible for the outcomes of his national socialist policies or his inept choices. When something goes wrong, it’s either Bush’s fault, Cheney’s fault, or now the fault of his own hand-picked socialist advisers. For the smartest man on earth, the one who was going to stop the oceans from rising, he seems to be remarkably ineffectual and impotent.

Only way 0bama can be misled is for the mirror on the wall to say, "You are. Oh, Great One!"

You can read a newspaper through his skin.

The gov'ts certainly know how to marshal forces to minimize the impart on the shoreline of oil headed that way. Let BP plug the hole.

Let the gov'ts get off their butts to protect the shoreline.

And make it a public firing, that’s what the stooge Chavez does. Put on a show ... make it look good, be mad, show your anger and disgust at your incompetent bureaucrats.

Meanwhile, the people want to see who is in charge of the giant oil slick, Obama’s Katrina. It didn’t have to be, for want of some fire booms, it didn’t have to be. It’s just incompetent stooges running big government that Obama wants, someone to regulate your salt, why you bask in the oil slick — the folly of it all.

Look up in the sky, no over there by the Styrofoam Greek temples — Why it’s Obama. Man of mystery, man who does nothing. Man who screws up everything faster than a speeding Kenyan. Man who fights for social justice and reparations. A man who worships in Rev Wright’s church ... And now we know what he learned while there.

And who gets the blame when Obamacare goes sour?

Did you find the fire booms yet? Why no, the government forgot to buy them didn’t they.

Carville is most likely sounding like the Louisiana boy he really is.

The Clintonistas might also be concerned with the total destruction of the entire Gulf Coast by the "ignant" Leftwingtards running the White House too.

There's undoubtedly a GS 13, or maybe even a GS 14 somewhere in Department of Interior who knows exactly how this problem can be resolved.

Alas, the careerists standing on his shoulders really can't afford to allow him or her to be put to work on fixing things.

The appointees on top of those careerists have previously identified this young GS 13/14 as a quite useful person to use in the preparation of their next PowerPoint presentations, so they certainly don't want him or her being reassigned to something "new" else they'd be left speechless.

The Gulf Coast is doomed!

Of course its the problem. The Obama administration has done nothing but block efforts to minimize this because he wants it to hurt as many, as badly and for as long as possible. Then Obama can portray himself as the savior and claim to be the only thing standing between BP and the pitchforks.

Its what community organizers do and we've seen Obama do this several times already.

what can the federal government do?

Day one BP admitted that the Feds have the equipment to survey and deal with this crisis. Since then the Feds have insisted that the solution rests squarely in BP's hands.

We have the largest and most sophisticated navy in the world, capable of working at extreme depths with massive enterprises.

Obama's response has been to allow this crisis to worsen for his own political advantage. This tactic will blow up in his face.

I have been nisisting that this spill will not amount to a hill of beans. I did not consider the administration's conspiratorial interest in making it as bad as possible.

There are several issues which the criminal administration can derive leverage for through exploitation of the crisis in the Gulf.

Maxine Waters revealed the primary agenda, to take over the oil companies/control the oil industry.

Making petroleum based fuel/energy more scarce in Amerika by imposing extreme regulation now, as Ram-it-through Emanuel has said: '(A Crisis) allows you to do things you normally could not do.'

Government expansion of federal oligarchical powers.

Indirectly bringing the Amerikan people more under government dependency ... control over fuel equates to indirect controls over food production, distribution, and of course the ever useful 'scarcities' which translate into even more regulatory federal oligarchical controls.

And last but by no means least, the expanding regulatory mindset means massive additions to the federal bureaucracy, which means greater oligarchical control because there are even more government employs to vote themselves security in democrat controlled 'governance'.

Well, what compounds the problem is the fact that Obama does not HAVE ANYONE in any advisory positions who has any real life experience......all academics, they are great with “thinking” about stuff but not so good with applying any of this “expertise” in the real world.

IMHO, and I am not an expert, but I would have left BP to deal with the gusher itself and used local resources to prevent the oil getting to shore. Instead, there are literally hundreds of people waiting on decisions by the federal government before they can proceed.

Exactly. Obama and the feds passed the buck on this from day one. He barely commented after the explosion and focused his attention and efforts squarely on Arizona.

carville is from louisiana and actually realizes this is going to have a long-term devastating impact on south lousiana, and even worse on some of the cajun communities in the bayou. I guess it really is different when it is your ox that is getting gored, as far as carville’s political views.

Yup....I said this last year..after the Dems get shellacked this November, possibly losing one or both houses of Congress, Hillary will resign as SecState, and announce that she’s entering the primary to run against Obama..
