Posted on 09/14/2011 10:42:12 PM PDT by DRey
People often ask me what advice I would give the White House about various things. Today I was mulling over election results from New York and Nevada while thinking about that very question. What should the White House do now? One word came to mind: Panic

Here’s proof that brain cells do regenerate. At least one at a time.
Car-vile has always been a Clinton sycophant.
I don’t say, “Panic”. I say, “Resign”!
Good old Carville - often wrong but never in doubt. I remember his book from two years ago about the next 40 years of democrat domination. BWAHAHAH! I do like his idea about firing people, though, and think we should start with the Obummer.
I have one word of advice for the country.... IMPEACH
Carville is praying for a Hillary primary challenge. Won’t happen, but he’s out there doing his bit for the Clinton cause.
He’s right, especially #2.
Carvel—Talk to Hillary—tell her to dump Obama and run in the Democratic Primary! The Nation needs her! The Democratic Party needs her. They need her to save the party and the nation. Don’t let Obama’s ego smash 100 years of success and hope! Do this for the regular Democratic working folks—not the union big shots and power brokers. Stand up for the things that the party has stood for—the things spoken of by FDR and JFK and yes, even LBJ. Only someone of your stature, Carvel, could do this. She will listen to you as she would few others.
Call her tonight to save the nation! God’s speed!
That's the last thing we want, and the first thing that some of the dem ops are starting to realize is their only hope.
They can't simply put up a challenger and lose the black vote forever. It's dawning on them that the only hope for 2012 is for Maobama to resign or be impeached.
Note the shifting of the sands in the attitude toward Obama lately in the media and in dem circles.. They very well may try to get rid of him somehow.
LOL! Of course, nowhere on snakehead’s list is “Accept responsiblity, apologize, promise to change”.
I hope Bamster takes his advice! Once again, it will prove that Obama is never willing to accept responsibility for anything.
Not really... read the last part.
After he wrote this, he probably saluted Mary ... then flew up into the attic to once again hang upside down from a beam.
She’s as dumb as Obama...no wait, considerably dumber considering how soundly he beat her.
Smartest woman in the world she is not, and I don’t think I can take another year of looking into her gaping mouth again ><><
Why does Carville imply that the Tea Party would have rejoiced (to paraphrase what he said) at the deaths at Stalingrad?
“...then flew up into the attic to once again hang upside down from a beam.”
If FR gave awards, you should get one got that...and you owe me a kayboard BTW ;)
He’s referring to the guy at the Tea Party debate on Monday that yelled out his approval at letting a theoretical person with no health insurance theoretically die.
Okay, who else besides Hillary, could actually run against the first black president? HRC is bitter about that loss to Obama when friends, colleagues and the “super delegates” she served with in Congress gave her the heave-ho after she ran herself into the ground and finally got close enough that they could have made the difference. Her campaign beat her. They all thought they came for a coronation and got a bloody bull fight that they were not remotely prepared for and the clock ran out. She will never run and would probably enjoy telling them “NO” if they begged her.
REVENGE IS A DISH BEST SERVED COLD. They will all be out of jobs while she has enjoyed herself as SOS and can retire as the ONE. The ONE they should have elected.
Now, who else could primary Obama with a hair of a chance? Maybe Pelosi? The Left would love it.
Bwaa haa haa!
I don’t need awards. I’m a legend in my own cave.
I figured he slithered into a snake hole.
Brack will do none of this. He’s not in charge.
Democrats become unhinged when you mention the Tea Party. The Tea Party is the biggest single threat to the progressive agenda and as such they will demonize it to the ends of the earth. They are so obsessed with the Tea Party that they bring it up constantly.... strengthening the Tea Party.
The Tea Party represents a great awakening by the silent majority that stood by quietly as our country was transformed into something the founding fathers would not recognize. The Tea Party dominated the 2010 elections and is poised to dominate the 2012 election.
Who’s in charge?
Notice what it says on the bottom of that jackasses book?
“How the Democrats will rule the next generation”.
Sometimes they slip up and say what they really mean.
That’s the part where he saluted Mary....
You know, I rather get a kick out of ole’ Serpent Head. Isn’t that what Rush called him? Mary and James attended one of Rush’s weddings—not sure if this recent one.
>>> Brack will do none of this. Hes not in charge. <<<
Isn’t that the truth! I think Valerie Jarrett and Eric Holder are. Daley keeps his business schedule moving and the WON they send golfing.
He’s a strategist. They are soulless....
He’s married to a strategist.
They are smart and savvy about politics.
I imagine that the Tea Party has completely tossed their salads.
Carville, along with many dems and media libs, are trying to tell the American public that all of the GOP candidates in the last debate are “crazy” people. That’s all those motherf*ckers have now “They’re all crrrrrraaaaaaazzyyyyyyy”. Makes me mad but also it’s a good sign their bag of tricks is so empty. Whoever the GOP nominee is: you HAVE to be creative and fight back against Obama every hour of every day and the MEDIA TOO or forget it, just go away.
Why is Sarah Palin (and apparently Newt) the only ones with the guts to call out the media????
Read Carville’s entire manifesto.... he’s nuts!
I know that Rush attended Mary and James’s wedding. He showed footage on his then-TV show.
#3 - "Is it any wonder that we were doing better in the middle of the stimulus-spending period than we are doing with the austerity program?"
and #4--- "As I watch the Republican debates, I realize that we are on the brink of a crazy person running our nation. I sit in front of the television and shudder at the thought of one of these creationism-loving, global-warming-denying, immigration-bashing, Social-Security-cutting, clean-air-hating, mortality-fascinated, Wall-Street-protecting Republicans running my country."
are right????? Really?
There was talk of Russ Feingold. He could play the Eugene McCarthy role, almost to a tee.
But, like McCarthy, he probably couldn't unseat a sitting President. And, if the Democrat establishment is going to challenge Obama, they need somebody who can win. Evan Bayh would be no better -- and, as a perceived moderate -- he would infuriate the moonbat wing.
In 1968, that guy was Robert F. Kennedy. Now, it's Hillary. And that's about it. The 'Rats really don't have a second string.
Of course, to avoid alienating the black vote, they could run Jesse Jackson, Jr. But wouldn't that be out of the frying pan...and into the fire?
>> What should the White House do now?
Sunday there are local elections here in Berlin. Yesterday I saw a campaign poster for a black guy that said “I am an Obama”.
I returned home and told my wife and she said Obama should use that. LoL!
The other day I saw this democrat on TV and after watching her speak I thought to myself, “If she ran for president she could probably get the nomination and be tough to beat. She served as governor of a red state and has foreign affairs experience.”
That person was: Janet Napalitano.
I don’t think she would challenge Obama, maybe 2016.
We've had quite enough incompetence already, thank you.
Most likely it is an unauthorized trial balloon from Carville. Whether authorized or not, the utterance reveals the disarray within the party and the nonchalance growing in the ranks of the Democratic Party concerning their leader. Obama has lost the power of fear. No president can run the country effectively without the support of his own party and a president can only get the support of his party through carrots and sticks. Carville and the rest of them have lost fear of Obama's stick.
This is an astonishing development in view of the mythology of the Democratic Party concerning race. Obama's immunity to criticism was so complete at the time of his election and for a season thereafter that it even extended past the media and into the ranks of elected Republicans. It certainly extended to defeated Republicans like John McCain. It is important to note that the Obama's election has made at least one contribution to the American experience: if Carville can criticize Obama free from fear of the race card, anyone can and will. This is a momentous inflection point which should not be passed over unremarked.
Never again will America be exploited so blatantly by race.
Expect the disintegration of the Obama edifice to accelerate. Factions will pop up everywhere and many Democratic candidates will begin to run against Obama and, equally important, they will begin to raise funds in competition against Obama. Those who cannot credibly distance themselves from Obama will consider resigning or otherwise withdrawing from their races. Primary fights will break out across the board. The party will be riven between a faction that wants to govern it to the left in the tradition of Lyndon Johnson and a faction on the far left who want to subvert America but whose champion, Barack Obama, has become radioactive. Before the election I posted that one could expect the Democrat party to behave at some point like a pack of ravening wolves who turn on their own and consume them.
Hillary knows that if she runs against the first black president she will have earned the unremitting anger of the single most important voting bloc in the Democrat party and it is inconceivable that she can win the general election in this climate without the black vote.
It is likely that the scandals such as fast and furious or crony capitalism will at last be considered relevant by the mainstream media and the ventilation of scandals beyond talk radio and Glenn Beck will lend respectability to what we conservatives have known or suspected since before the election. Again, the political correctness barricade of race will no longer avail Democrats against truth.
If Hillary does run, what platform could she possibly run on? That the Democrats picked the wrong socialist to implement their socialist policies and that if they had just selected Hillary herself she would have served up the right kind of socialism? The fact is that Hillary will not run because the Democrat brand like Obama himself is becoming radioactive and will remain so until the economy swims out of this mess.
For some time I have feared that a black swan event other than some sort of economic crash leading to spiraling deflation or runaway inflation would give Obama and his crowd an opportunity to win the next election. Clearly, his foreign policy has been so feckless and discredited that the country will not turn to him at the next election even if we are confronted with a serious threat, although he will clearly find support short-term as the country rallies round the flag and its President.
The Congressional special election in New York 9 demonstrates that Obama has lost the support of much of the Jewish community who provide not only money but the intellectual resources which sustain the Democrat party. They have lost confidence in him over Israel and everyone has lost confidence in him over the economy. They will not be around anymore to provide the rationalizations for the advance of statism, socialism, crony capitalism, and fascism disguised by race. They may well come back after this election season but for now they will turn their face from Obama.
All of this is not to say that the Democrats have had an epiphany and will now become Reagan Democrats. They will still be capable of the most tortuous rationalizations of the most bizarre statist policies. But the twin props of the Democrat' s raison d'être for now at least are being removed from under Obama and his party: the race card and Jews with their intellectual and financial contribution.
The question is how many Jews will come home after they sulk? The Democrats lost a percentage after 9/11 as it became more respectable for a Jew to admit to his coreligionists that he might vote Republican. We cannot foretell the extent but it is inevitable that a growing number will find that they cannot go home again.
Whether she's capable of wnning the gereal election, is a whole different story.
Sometimes politics can be very comlicated. Sometimes, it can be very simple.
Over a year ago, I predictd a challenge by Kucinich - not a firm prediction, mind you, but a reasonable possiblity.
The little twerp wouldn’t have a chance of winning, but he’s just divorced enough from reality to give it a shot if he saw an opening, and he sure is enamored of his own political views. And the moonbat Left that’s grown disenchanted with BO would love him. Just imagine the tingle down Michael Moore’s leg!
Plus, it would be a lot more pleasant watching little Dennis tote around his wife than the load of baggage Obama’s dealing with.
I am puking with that suggestion and it is only 4:55 am. Please
“Mr. President, people are livid. Tell people that you, too, are angry and sickened by the irresponsible actions on Wall Street that caused so much suffering.”
What. An. Idiot.
He’s happy, not angry and sickened. This Cloward-Piven thing is working better than he hoped. This is on purpose. That’s why he doubles down instead of changing.
Once you accept that, everything makes sense. Until you understand that, nothing makes sense.
I think he meant that the Tea Partiers are blood-thirsty war lovers, thus they would rejoice at the deaths on both sides at Stalingrad. Yes, liberals do think that way.
Who’s in charge?
I think Jarrett runs things and whomever has the number to his Bkackberry. The crazies from Moveon.org come to mind, and Soros.
May I suggest to Obama ... "Assume Crash Positions"
I'm really sick of that stupid question. The way the candidates should answer that question is something like:
"What concerns me more is a government run health care system that waters down everyone's health insurance down to such a degree that even more people die. Everyone knows the government cannot run anything better than private industry. That is why people in Canada who can afford it come to America for their back and pace maker operations. Who wants to wait 6 months for a procedure that can be scheduled and accomplished in a day in the US "
