Skip to comments.Carville predicts scandals to overshadow Democrats, Obama
Posted on 01/03/2009 1:37:59 PM PST by obamaisandrogynous
Democratic political guru James Carville predicts the Democratic Party currently disgraced by the venal behavior of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will suffer a series of embarrassing scandals in 2009.
Carville, who ran Bill Clintons successful presidential campaign in 1992, said the reason is based on simple math: More Democrats in elected office increases the likelihood of scandal.
I firmly believe that there are streaks, and that political scandals happen in clusters, Carville said, in a posting on CNN.com.
There are several burgeoning scandals right now in Democratic circles:
* Blagojevich is accused by federal prosecutors of conspiring to sell Barack Hussein Obama Jr.s former Senate seat to the highest bidder.
* Former low-rated talk show host Al Franken is being accused of stealing an election with the help of Obamas ACORN organization in Minnesota.
* Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) is alleged to have not paid his taxes.
* Former Rep. Rahm Emanuel, Obamas White House chief of staff, is accused of shenanigans regarding his property taxes in Chicago.
* Obama himself was alleged in the U.K. press to have had an ongoing affair, which, just like the John Edwards scandal, has not yet been covered by the U.S. media.

“Change” = Replace one party’s crooks with the other party’s crooks in Washington.
Just reported today that Harry Reid was caught on the Blago wiretaps...
Hope Barry’s Birth certificate issue is the biggest.
Good tactics. Now when we find out that Obama is a lying foreigner, that he took or offered bribes in choosing his replacement, and the other “surprises”, Carville can dismiss it as “old news”.
I predict that if you jump off the roof of your house, you will hit the ground
Too bad the MSM will give everyone of them a pass too.
I have decided that we should all wear black and go into mourning on Inaguration day...like Katie Couric did when Bush was re-elected. Drape our doors with black swags, etc.
American freedoms are dying and socialism is winning. Obama and his ilk will squeeze every freedom away that they can, under the guise of the government doing good for/knowing what's best for all the people - and the sheeple who don't recognize socialism will think they are getting a great deal. And - Since the young generation has no idea, and hasn't been taught in schools about what they are loosing, nothing seems important about this loss of freedoms to them. Kinda like the loss of a relative they never knew for them, isn't it? They just think the "change" is great and the loss is no big deal.
There would be alot more scandals uncovered if the Media, also known as friends of the democrats, would do their job.
They left out the trial of that Dems freezer cash!
In order to turn a crime into a scandal, though, you need the media, and I would not count on them doing anything more than covering up for the Dems.
Doesn’t look good for the Dems when one of their biggest cheerleaders is making predictions like these.
An explanation of Emanuel's property tax shenanigans, in which he avoided property taxes on his home by declaring it an office of his charity, is here.
Well he may be a liberal but he’s not stupid. He knows the kind of people that backed Obama, and he also knows that the “YES WE CAN” prayer is going to sound increasingly dumb when people no longer have Bu$hitler to blame for everything.
WOW...a rocket scientist!
Question is.......Obama’s affair with a man or woman?
With a man, woman or goat?
***Question is.......Obamas affair with a man or woman?***
Of course the rats will congratulate him either way.
Yea, when clusters of Democrats win elections...
That's the first I've seen of this one? Anybody know any details about this?
Obama himself was alleged in the U.K. press to have had an ongoing affair, which, just like the John Edwards scandal, has not yet been covered by the U.S. media.
Good! Keep it coming!
Well, the biggest current scandal is that a Chicago Mafioso/Muslim/Communist/racist/baby-killing/narcissistic foreigner just got himself elected president with the help of a complicit press.
Yes, there was talk about an affair earlier. I don’t believe it. I think he’s gay.
Was he wearing a grbage can over his head when he said this?
Some Chicago chick, was paid as a campaign officer when the filed paperwork said it was someone else, so she was whisked off to the Bahamas where she works for some Chicago bigshot. Her name’s Vera.
Of course you’ve heard about McCain talking to a woman other than his wife that turned out to be just a woman other than his wife but you’ve never heard about this Obama tryst. Gosh, wonder why?
Hell — they're not involved in “scandals”....
They're involved in outright Corruption, Graft, Fraud, Treason and a number of other CRIMES against the Republic.
this just in...
water is wet...
the sun rises in the east, sets in the west...
the sky is blue...
Ah yes, the knives. Ah, the knives.
Gee, don't go out on a prediction limb there Carville...
He’s purposely lowering expectations so that when the scandals do hit, they won’t be so shocking because they were expected.
The Rahm property tax story seems to be a case of misinformation due to some complications in understanding the property tax reports. The Tax Assesor’s office indicates he does pay property tax.
Me too. I have not seen this tidbit either. Wonder if Carville is tossing out news to weaken the shock. If Obama is having an affair, it could get interesting.
I predict the sun will rise in the east.
One doesn't have to be clairvoyant to make predictions such as Carville's. He knows how corrupt the Democrat Party is; after all he was and still is a close participant in the Party's nefarious activities.

the sun rises in the east, sets in the west...

Add one to the list...
A lacking of experience dunderhead who is pure as the driven snow will make things right for all.
Sorry for my mistake, that has been done already thanks to the election of Jimma' Carter.
“Wonder if Carville is tossing out news to weaken the shock. “
What’s notable is that some REAL scandals are conspicuously absent from the list. It’s not clear whether Carville or reporter generated the list. But it excludes Fitz’s investigation into the “Board Games” scandal which could implicate Obama, since he was the one who introduced legislation to reduce number on Health Facilities Board from 16 to 9 members, thereby making it far easier for “The Combine” to keep 5 sure votes in their pockets and thereby control that Board’s decisions about who would win and lose in the competition to build health facilities. It also excludes Obama’s own “shenanigans” with Tony Rezko regarding his house/lot purchase.
So it may be a combination of preempting expectations as well as misdirection on Carville’s part. Given his expertise in all matters surrounding corruption, his prediction can be taken to the bank.
There are streaks all right, and they're in Harry's shorts as he tries to figure out what the he** to do about Burris.
It’s because there are more crooks in the democrat party.
The fact that you can't even find pictures of her on the web is provocative. Old man Joe Goebbels would envy the control Obama has information flow.
nothing on drudge about reid on the wiretaps
one of the tabloids has something about Winfrey blaming her weight gain on Michelle Obama.
There is one thing that is for sure..lots of entertainment to come in the next four years
And I am sure that various intelligence outfits in different countries are trying to get the dirt on Obama...especially the birth certificate issue.
he learned his lesson from Obama’s mistake.
sure he talked to him...and it was normal to do so..etc.
Reid talked to Blago on 12/3 and then the Chicago Tribune published the front page story on the wiretaps on 12/5 and Blago was arrested on 12/9. Interesting timing.
That would be Congressman William Jefferson, DEMOCRAT-Louisiana.
2010 would be an excellent year for conservative/Rep. to run for office. Party better recruit good candidates.
Dems are gonna get creamed.
