James Carville: Obama should panic
By: Mackenzie Weinger September 15, 2011 06:18 AM EDT
Democratic strategist James Carville has just one word of advice for President Barack Obama: panic.
In a CNN op-ed, Carville said Tuesdays two special election results are a warning to the White House and a sign the president must make drastic changes now to stave off the Republican momentum.
Its time to panic, he wrote.
People often ask me what advice I would give the White House about various things, Carville wrote on Wednesday. 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.
Carville said Democrats are past sending out talking points and said he would tell the president, The time has come to demand a plan of action that requires a complete change from the direction you are headed.
Carvilles advice: Fire. Indict. Fight.
Obama must fire someone No fire a lot of people because the current team is just not working, Carville wrote.

I think he needs to take some time off to relax...maybe play some more golf.
Perhaps pushing further to the Left would help?
He will not fire anyone. He’s the most incompetent fool ever to hold the office. Jimmy Carter, you can now rest a little easier.
Well, don’t you think the golf could be combined with a nice vacation at an expensive resort somewhere?
“Obama must fire someone No fire a lot of people because the current team is just not working, Carville wrote.”
Sorry, Hillary. Hope you liked it there in Africa when you had the chance.
It is understandable that Jim would publicly promote the notion that Obama is getting bad advice, as the reason for his failure.
Why are conservatives so reluctant to simply assign bad motives to Obama?
Sean Hannity wouldn’t shut up, when a guest attempted to make that point last night.
One man’s perceived incompetence is another man’s agenda!
Actually, I believe the man and his wife need a good, long vacation....say...somewhere in Kansas....
I hear there is a nice town called Leavenworth that has a nice big spa....
It appears Obama has lost his Middle-Earth base.
Hey Lizard face, we’ll do the firing, and it won’t just be the current crop in the white house... a whole slue of fire’n be go’n down in DC, come November 2012...
Let’s see. Fire, indict, fight. Is that sort of like gulag, show trials, KGB action?
yeah but who wants to wait that long?
Carville may be a looney tune but he knows a thing or two of getting democrat politicians back in good graces. Lie, but lie effectively. But baraq is a special case. He won’t listen to anyone because he is the ONE. If baraq replaces anyone, it will be with people who are even more strident marxist than the previous ones. He is an african dictator at heart and will not change his mind.
carville is trying to push a rope. won’t work.
Obama is panicking the only way he knows how. He has retreated to his basic capability, and that is campaigning. And he’s doing it at colleges, where he can bask in the naive adoration that the kids slather on him.
We all knew this point would come, where all the tired Marxian ideas collapse. The qustion is whether we can keep from falling completely appart as this rolls into a depression.
Snake oil ain’t gonna fix the problem.
“Lets see. Fire, indict, fight. Is that sort of like gulag, show trials, KGB action?”
Find - Fix - Flank - Fudge it.
He could fire all he wants but who would fell the vacancies?
I suggest he just eat his peas and start writing a book on all the fabulous family vacations the tax payers sponsored.
Exactly. Liberal policies don’t work, you can call that incompetence, insanity, or design. Because liberals don’t don’t care about the consequences.
Carvilles advice: Fire. Indict. Fight.
Carville must be brain dead. Does He really want this guy sicking around?
“He is an african dictator at heart”
Ding ding ding, we have a winner, no more calls.
mortality-fascinated? Sometimes immortality is fascinating too. ;-)
The Republicans need to hit college campuses hard this election. Ask these kids what he's done for them and what has he done for the classes of 2009 and 2010 who are flipping burgers, if they're lucky.
But not billiards. Accidents do happen.
For precedent, see the Planned parenthood division at Jamaica, NY. There were enough abortions to make the entire Democrat party collectively orgasm.
obama should resign and get on with his life's work...snorting coke, smoking kools, having male to male sex, shooting hoops, taking mulligans, getting bitch slapped by moochelle, getting the klintoons their coffee....
Oooh, I’m turning Carville in to AttaaackWaaatchhh.com!
He can't be all wrong when he disagrees with the right and all "right" when he says something the right can support or believe.
That is exactly what Carville suggests later in his screed.
Behold, his mighty hand...
Obama must also make a case like a Democrat and fight the Republican austerity garbage, Carville noted. And when making the case, the president must stick to his story, Carville wrote.
If Obama cannot course correct, the country could soon have a crazy person in the White House, Carville said.
As I watch the Republican debates, I realize that we are on the brink of a crazy person running our nation, he wrote. 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.
The voice of reason in the DemoncRAT party.
I think he should come out as openly Marxist,
name all his fellow travelers that believe the same way,
and proseletize about the superiority of the Marxist worldview.
“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 “
They aren’t. Your guys are. That’s why you’re in trouble and in a state of panic.
“If Obama cannot course correct, the country could soon have a crazy person in the White House, Carville said.”
We already do. His name is Obama.
What the hell is that all about?
has any one posted his remarks on attack watch?
A “crazy person” in the White House?
You mean like one who believes doctors routinely operate on healthy kids and chop off diabetics’ legs just for the money, but that he and the government will stop that by preventing surgeries?
That crazy person?
Which election were they watching in that snap? I remember Carville putting the trashcan on his head, just can’t remember how long ago that was.
Hmmm... wasn’t that a LEFTWING pogrom?
The huge amount of deaths in the last century was overwhelmingly the result of LEFTWING (communist) ideology carried out to its fruition.
In November 2011 we have gov races in Kentucky, Louisiana, and Mississippi, as well as state legislature elections in Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey and Virginia. We will start seeing how well people still like the Dem party.
Carville's last paragraph is a real doozy!
I love that photo.
I miss Bob Novak.
I just figure that, first and foremost, James Carville is a left-wing lunatic. All else is secondary.
Clearly, the Democrat leaders are putting party over country by continuing to support this assclown.
CONSIDER what happened in 1974....Republican leaders went to Dick Nixon and told him how the cow ate the cabbage—he was going to have to leave, as his support was collapsing....
Hussein’s cult, however, refuses to see the truth: his regime is hurting his party AND the nation.
Just more proof there IS a difference between Democrats and Republicans.
“One mans perceived incompetence is another mans agenda!”
Right. It’s his agenda and it is not conducive to a free and prosperous society.
Second, Carville, like most leftists, wants indictments against Wall Street. But, the real problem is in the oval office. With the help of the MSM, Obama has been able to appear pretty much scandal free, while passing out billions in goodies to his cronies. Now, however, the chickens are starting to come home to roost. Scandals, such as Solyndra, and Gunwalker are going to pop big time, followed by numerous others.
Third, there is nothing Obama can do to fix this economy, since his presence in the oval office is a major cause of it. Right now, if you are a business in America, you operate out of fear. You are either a pal of this administration, or you are doing your level best to stay off the radar screen.
This administration, will be spending most of the next 14 moths trying to defend itself, make excuses and blame others - that is not the road to victory.
But we already have a crazy person in the White Hut....
