Panicky Schultz: Dump Axelrod, Bring in Begala-Carville
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 09/16/2010 5:25:31 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

It smells like Tea Party victory. Ed Schultz has gotten a whiff, and he's panicking . . .

On his MSNBC show this evening, sensing an impending Republican landslide inspired by the Tea Party tempest, Ed called for David Axelrod, Pres. Obama's chief political adviser, to be thrown overboard for being too "soft." Schultz suggested axing the Axe and replacing him with James Carville and Paul Begala.

It was Joe Biden's attempt to rouse the base on Rachel Maddow's show last night that set Ed off . . .

Sorry Eddie! I don’t think old, liberal white men with large foreheads is going to work for you this year. It’s the year of the Mama Grizzlies.

Isn’t there a lot of partying going on this week at the W.H.? Joe Biden is TOAST. He hears the drum roll from his own state in Delaware, people are upset. I like it when he gets jittery. He says even more stupid things.

LOL...is Schultz forgetting that Begala/Carville are Clintonistas?

I would bet their loyalties are still with the Clintons, especially after the way Obama screwed Louisiana on the oil spill.

Let’s get this straight! The TEA party is about getting government back in control—meaning this: we will not pay higher taxes. We will not support reckless spending any longer. We do not want Obamacare!

We want responsible and accountable government. The accountability is to the taxpayers both here and in the future.

We want candidates committed to doing what is right for the country right now. We do not want candidates who are planning a Washington career.

We want a country who supports our allies, not bending over to Islamic radicals and their representatives.

We do not want Sharia law and we do not want our courts relying on international law to settle what our constitution has already made clear.

We want America back and we are fighting for it. We will not stop.

But I thought the Dems were all excited because the stupid Tea’s candidates will be so easy to defeat?

I think Axlegrease and Baraq are joined at the hip.

And the Clinton mob is waiting to see if Hillary! decides to take a run at Baraq in the Dem primaries.

So what makes Schultz think that Begala and Carville would be loyal to Obama and NOT to Hillary Clinton?

Oh, yeah. Hillary’s hitmen. Just what 0bama needs. That’ll help the paranoia level in the White House, you betcha. She could start calling him “Vince” just to mess with his head.

I just got some insider info which leads me to believe Reid is going to be absolutely crushed in Nevada. I had Sig Rogich starting to flop sweat some last night at a debate after my audience question where I asked whether Reid would take a polygrapgh test. Still a couple more weeks before the Dems realize just how big the tsunami is.

Carville is secretly setting Hillary up for a run in two years as a way of saving the presidency for the Democrats. He’s not interested in helping Obama. Don’t know about “The Forehead’s” motives.

Axelrod is totally incompetent. He just got lucky that the Republicans nominated an unelectable candidate. He seems to be a one-trick pony. Now that it's difficult to blame every negative occurrence and natural disaster on Bush, he now is blaming every natural disaster on Boehner. Totally off subject, but whenever I see him I think he looks very much like Howard Sprague.

LOL, you must go into giggling fits watching that steaming pantload Shultz!
Yeah, I’m sure Begala and Carville want to get within 1,000 miles of the Ubanga disaster! Right.

Anyway, I have a feeling they’re already working on Hillary’s campaign.

Weird that you'd say that. I think Eric Holder is a dead ringer for Howard Sprague! Trend?

Yes, you are right! Eric Holder does indeed look like Howard Sprague as does David Axelrod. Barry has a thing for Howard Sprague types.

Dump Axelrod? But Axelrod is effectively the President. If anyone in this White House gets dumped, it will be Barack Obama. Axelrod ain’t going anywhere. He’s the one putting in 16-hr days while Obama plays golf.

Mark...I suspect that Ed is, in his mind, auditioning for the job...he'd love for a gig inside the WH/Dem HQ as a political pit bull..

BTW, any chance that you'll take a field trip to DC to cover Ed's march next month...?

Please do.
Surround the One with Clintonistas, lol, that’s the way to go.
This has Hill and Bill’s fingerprints all over it. As do the interviews with the ex Obama staffer who says the president needs to grow up. Also the articles in the tabloids, lol, who owns those tabloids? Clinton supporters.
Hill and Bill are on the move. Obama is DONE, stick a fork in him.

Schultz has been raving even more than usual lately. He’s in a panic, both about the elections and his own impending firing.

When is Comcast going to man up and can Schultz, Maddow, Olbermann and Matthews? How much longer will they keep losing money just to cheerlead for Obama?
