James Carville: W.H. 'out of bounds' on jobs speech
politico.com ^ | 9/1/11 9:24 AM EDT | MACKENZIE WEINGER

Posted on 09/01/2011 7:29:54 AM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!

Democratic strategist James Carville on Thursday called the White House “out of bounds” for requesting that the president address Congress during the same night as next week’s Republican presidential debate.

“I do think this is a really big debate and I think the White House was out of bounds…in trying to schedule a speech during a debate,” Carville said on “Good Morning America”.

The president originally asked to present his jobs plan on the evening of Sept. 7, the same night and time as the Republican presidential debate hosted by NBC and POLITICO. The scheduling broke down into a partisan showdown, with the president ultimately agreeing to speak instead on Sept. 8.

Carville said the debate, the first to feature Texas Gov. Rick Perry, will be a “barn burner.”

Doesn’t really matter to me what night Obozo speaks. Won’t listen to him anyway. But will follow the live comments on FR.

Even Carville knows Obama is an idiot that is clueless.The Obama campaign talking points

How pathetic

"Just go out and just document it, it’s not so much that the speech is important George, it’s the follow up after the speech,” he said. “And this is going to have to be what they are going to run the 2012 campaign on…this congress is not going to pass anything that the president proposes, that is pretty clear.”

OMG — James Carville is criticizing the Obama administration? Carville finds something to criticize about a good Democrat????????

What is this world coming to???????

Even the likes of Carville see that the White House was trying to overshadow the GOP debate.

Now Obama will be up against the NFL kickoff game for the new season. What will people watch — football or 0bama? Can’t wait to see the ratings.

Zero breaks all protocol in scheduling this worthless speech, and then uses his press to ridicule those who disagree. His entire presidency has been one of blistering the American people while making fun of them.

I think he should have gone further and said this is not a reason for a president to be addressing a joint session of congress.

Someone on TV said either way Obama loses as either his staff are moronic enough to not realize there was a debate at the same exact time or it was purposeful and they thought this would raise Obama’s poll numbers.It was both.I predict Obama will change it again to not compete with football.When is dancing with the stars premiere;? the idiot will change it to that night next. The truth is, no one wants to hear him lie any more.

As others here in FR have said, I worry about the contents of the speech. Why does he want a joint session of congress? Is he going to announce something very big? Something regulatory, beyond congress’ ability to stop.

Classic Clinton triangulation.

Republicans are too busy fighting.
Democrats (Obama admin) are inept and insensitive.
Clinton camp is the sensible moderate voice in it all.

Well played.

Good point. You jog my memory that Carville has been critical of Obama before.

Well, we know that Carville is a Clinton man going way back. Could that be part of his criticism of Obama?????? Does Hillary still have any ambitions of her own?????

This isn't surprising at all.

Carville's real loyalty has always been to the Clintons and he considers Obama the enemy.

If Hillary does she is toast as she sold out Az. to the UN and has her finger prints all over fast and furious.As well as she will never get over being a part of the Obama failed admin.I read some liberal mag that they want Chelsea to run when she is 35.If the dems challenge Obama it will be with a Bayh or Powell.

I think he wants a captive audience unable to do anything while he criticizes and insults them (the Republican side).

And I bet he will mention the fact that they wouldn’t ‘let’ him have his way.

IMO this stems from the BP disaster. Carville at his core is a Louisianan and was clearly most unhappy with the Obama admin mangling of that fiasco. Ever since Carville has been ripping Obama at every opportunity.

On second thought he and his staff are morons.They want a campaign picture of Obama wagging his finger at all of them blaming them. But if this is the case the idiots could have called a joint meeting.

BACK to them being idiots -do any of them know the protocol?They can’t be this arrogant or stupid can they?

Joint sessions are held on special occasions such as the State of the Union Address and presidential inaugurations.

Carville telling you that your move is far too politically ugly is like the Kennedys telling you that you are drinking too much. It's either for political show or a sign that you are truly screwing up.

Yep and I believe Carville

Hates the word progressive

Loves the Clinton’s

Would have an insider eye

Would work to clean the party

Obozo is the reason that my TV is only on during the football season and I only watch a handful of games. I expect the next election will be horrible.

Also one more thing I forgot; at one point the INSIDER said they were busy and out of town.I searched and the Carville’s were at some Church thing in NOLA for the democrats or something. I also venture further to GUESS that the Obama challenger will be Bayh or Colin Powell.

I wish the Repubs in Congress wouldn't even show up on the 8th.

What Obama says ceased to be important long ago.

Now he's blaming this Republican controlled House for things that were/not done when the Dems had control of everything!

Remember when Carville made a big deal showing he wore PUMAS everytime he was on TV after the election.

I would love to be a fly on the wall when the Clintons and their enablers meet to eat and talk politics. You know they hate Barry!
