James Carville underscored the concerns among Democrats about the current economic picture and what it means for 2012 in a radio interview with Scott Hennen:
"Everything worries me in this environment. Nobodys gotten elected with these kinds of numbers. So, Im worried in the general election. I profoundly admit that. Again, Romneys just making a technocratic kind of confidence argument, and hes really kind of a windsock of a guy. If you dont like his position on something, give it a day hell change it."
To some extent, underscoring concern helps gin up the Democratic base and crystallizes the fact that there will be a nominee fairly soon, after months of a slow-moving race.
Carville, in addition to panning Mitt Romney, broadly trashed Rick Perry, and said that Herman Cain "is not going to be the president of anything. Herman Cain goes out and he got a 999, and its 909, and hes like changing area codes. The guy cant even figure out what his position on abortion yet, which is kind of a basic issue.
He gleefully professes ignorance on foreign policy. Again, Im not, but if I were a person, if I had a conservative world view and I was looking for our next election to have somebody to articulate that view, I would be unbelievably disappointed. Herman Cain is a salesman. I mean, hes not trying in one sense. Hes just trying to get some attention. Hes not going to get the nomination."
Carville is doing his best to show how irrelevant he is.
Right up there with Karl Rove.
Washed up and out of touch.
“Again, Im not, but if I were a person...”
‘stead of a reptile...
Herman Cain is a salesman, and Barack Obama is not?
Com’on, James. Give me a break.
Amen!! He is utterly irrelevant. He is their Karl Rove.
He’s not worried one iota. They know the GOP elite are pushing Romney ... and they are laughing.
Not ot worry, James my boy! Obama will use the Occupy movement and staff to stuff all of the ballot boxes that can be found. Hell, in WA in past elections, King County would have election turn out of 105% of registered voters. Local judges thought that was just fine.
When we get to be like Argentina, then we are only a short step from following Russia right back where they came from.
And remember, the Tea Party is irrelevant.
Carville always makes me laugh. I don’t believe most of what he has to say but how he says it cracks me up.
That is why I am working to defeat the GOP Establishment Elites. :)
He is right though that there is a quick bump in the polls to be gained by tossing Timmy Geithner under the nearest available bus.
Romneys ........ really kind of a windsock of a guy.
That pretty well sums him up.
....amazing stuff, Is this a "sandbagging or what?"....
if Myth (0-lite) gets the nom., and w/ Pres__ent Oblah..blah's bootlickers' efforts (Acorns et al)....it aint gonna be easy.
What are you going to do if he does? Put a trashcan over your head again?
Mitt Windsock Romney.....
I like it.....
In as much as there is no honor among thieves, I'm stealing that from Carville.
...but if I were a person....
You know Jimmy, I’ve been wondering what the hell you were. Thanks for admitting taht you’re not a “person”. I always thought you were the resulting specie of a mutated serpent.
Serpenthead speaksssssssssssssss with forked tongue.
Actually, no. Obama really isn't much of a salesman.
Every time he tries to explain his "plans", they become more unpopular.
He's more like a banana republic dictator.
No matter how much Carville trashes the GOP candidates, I just don’t hear him selling the accomplishments of his choice for POTUS.
I think Carville wants Hillary very badly. That way Bill can have another Intern in the White House and Carville could handle the cigars.
Serpent Head sees romney for what he is and he is the loyal opposition, unlike rove who is just a duplicitous, elitist liberal SOB who claims to be on our side.
I was referring to Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign. Now THAT was one helluva sales job(or whatever you’d wish to call it).
