Skip to comments.Carville: GOP Could Come Back Big in 2010
Posted on 06/26/2009 8:07:25 AM PDT by re_tail20
Democratic strategist James Carville has sent out an e-mail for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee warning Democrats that the GOP could rebound in 2010 and take over the Senate just as they did in 1994.
In 1994, Carville writes, "things were a lot like they are today. A young, exciting president. Big majorities in Congress. We figured we'd have plenty of time to build the America we wanted.
"You know what happened next. Fifty-four new Republicans elected in the House. Eight new Republicans elected in the Senate. Our moment of opportunity had passed.
"Republicans are hoping 2010 is the new 1994. But heck, they don't need eight new senators. If they gain just one or two, it's going to be that much easier for them to scuttle vital legislation."

"It's the stupidity, stupid!"
"It's the Marxism, stupid!"
"We're tired of wagging the wagyu!"
"There's no more wealth to re-distribute, stupid!"
"Cloward-Piven is SO 2008!"
"Obama needs to join the ash-heap of history along with the Soviet Union and Jimmy Carter!"
I do think that Dems will have massive defeats in 2010 in the House. Not because of the GOP being better, but that the Dems have sucked more, especially these past six months (and counting).
Beware of unsavory creatures bearing "gifts".
I understand his wife lost her editing job due to the Hope n Change economy...
Carville probably expects that our Tea Parties will send millions of young Conservatives into the streets and create the a similar kind of excitement that the protests in Tehran had..
Common sense has to take over the GOP before the GOP can take over anything else. I fear that can’t happen quickly enough to get us where we need to be in 2010. However, I’d be happy to be proven wrong.
Loose lips sink ships!!!!
Heck yes its the same as ‘94.
As a young campaign mgr in 1994 I was stunned. Never saw that before, have not seen it since.......except now. The people are turning and a whole lot earlier and this time is different with the groundswell via the Tea Parties.
We might get the socialists in THIS party rather than the socialists in that OTHER party...
Or so says some socialist that should never be believed anyway.
If they pass cap and trade, it is over for the Dems in 2010, and probably 2012 as well.
I will be working full time to do EVERYTHING I can to make sure REAl CONSERVATIVES who honor our Constitution are elected in 2010! Only those candidates will get my full support!
“Wasn’t but a couple of months ago that Carville was predicting Dem victories as far as the end of time. “
And certainly, those victories would usher in the end of time.
Forgive me for pinging you to the snake.
How many Obama voters are reeling with buyer’s remorse?
How many Obama voters who saw nothing more than a black man to vote for to make them feel post-racist now see an America destroying bastard?
After Obama’s policies cripple the nation, how many of his voters will be screaming for his head? Democrats will elect the next Republican majority in the house.
We are not there yet. But remember how bad they were reeling in 1993.
Actually, the 1994 GOP victory may have been a major reason Clinton was re-elected in 1996. Their success saved him; he claimed their victories as his own and people bought it. I’ve begun to wonder if Obama has considered that as a way to win re-election in 2012. He seems to win minds and votes through blackmail and threats, so it wouldn’t make that much of a difference who’s doing the voting in Congress.
I have been saying for EONS...
IF the GOP wants to win they will ask all members to submit letters of resignation effective at the end of the term and seek out 535 new faces to run.
I'd start by looking for officers back from the Afgan and Iraq. They have more decision making skills and common sense get it done in one indivdual than the entire 535 combined...
Yep, and the worst part is, the Dems are giving the GOP much more ammunition this time around, but the GOP is not firing any shots.
But they won't save us from the GOP
So give me money
Thats what I want
American Conservatives in the street - taking back the country
that and some 2A supporters LOL
This prediction will come true, if we (Republicans) do not screw-up.
I don’t think the local parties are doing much to organize, if they were; they’d be much more likely to WIN!
The tea parties are doing more organizing than the GOP, IMO.
If they pass cap and tax, it is over for all of us.
Carville heck we are aiming at having all of the seats up for reelection in 2010!
It’s time for a new Newt to come up with a new “Contract with America” with both teeth and a vision of hope to give voters a REASON to vote republican.
