Carville on 2012: "I'm worried."
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/26/2011 | Will Rahn

Posted on 10/26/2011 10:25:22 AM PDT by martosko

Democratic strategist James Carville, the political operative famous for guiding Bill Clinton to the White House, says he’s worried America’s economic climate could sink President Obama in 2012.

“Everything worries me in this environment,” Carville told North Dakota-based radio host Scott Hennen in an interview Tuesday evening. “Nobody’s gotten elected with these kinds of numbers. So, I’m worried in the general election. I profoundly admit that.”

Heh

For the first time since 2006, I’m optimistic.

My optimism is inversely proportional to Carville’s.

Well, Jim, I tell ya what; I’m worried, too. Profoundly worried that your man-child in the White House pushed us so far down the road to socialism and so seriously damaged and polarized this country that the damage won’t be undone.

A primary challenger would be the nail in the coffin for Obama IMHO. When would that primary challenger need to get involved in running? Wouldn’t it have to be soon?

Carvil is right, which is exactly why we don't want to go with a RINO like Romney, and instead need to put forward the most conservative candidate possible like Cain.

Won’t happen since it would totally upset the black vote and the Democrap party will not take that risk.

The only guy that could beat the obummer is Muhamed Ali and he has parkinsons {which would be an improvement}.

The demonRATS know that if they run a primary challenger, without obummer "voluntarily" dropping out, and they'd lose 85% of the black vote and would go down in flames.

No demonRAT would challenge obummer...PERIOD.

They might get a loon, a dennis kokokoksinich, ralphy boy and and his Corvair, or castro's brother from another mother, but no serious run.

Carville is setting the stage for replacing Zero with Hillary.

Carville's true loyalty is to the Clintons, not the Democrats and certainly not Obama.

Who ever gets the nod from the two parties—events will drive this nation away from Liberalism and into a more statist view. There is no going back now—we can not rip away Social Security, Medicaid, etc... Only violence can change things in the form of Revolution, Civil War, major defeat and occupation by an enemy power. The system needs a re-boot but the citizens don’t want to be uncomfortable—they are dreaming that its 1960 again. This is Why they will vote in a comfortable—plastic person who promises much and does little. Look for white bread people—like Mitt to win and do little in the White House until forced to by events.

Carville should keep pimping Hillary until she’s convinced she could win. He should even convince a few lightweight libs to toss their hat in as well for the full circus freakshow. Would absolutely love to watch Barry get picked apart by his fellow leftists on the campaign trail, at debates, in advertising, etc. It would be worth pay-per-view to see Barry squirm in response to tough questions and see his campaign dollars squandered away proving to his own retarded party that he’s their man.

I agree. There are many things we need to do to become a long-term prosperous country again, but we lack the political will as a people to even do one of them.

At this point, my hope is that I live out my life relatively peacefully and the Fall of Rome doesn’t happen until after God has called me home.

James, you snakeheaded weasel, you better be worried,
everyone out in the real world is hanging on by their
fingertips and your boy is stepping on us with every
move he makes, what makes you think we’re gonna stand
it a minute longer than it takes to throw him off
the cliff. After that we’ll start drilling and mining
and put this country back on it’s feet.

Our electoral process can not be trusted.

It’s been totally undermined and compromised by tens of millions of illegal aliens, which government allowed to enter the country illegally.

What is left is a orchestrated show for the easily led.

I take note to the fact that Carville isn’t worried about the economy, nor the state of foriegn policy, nor the American people. He’s only worried that his annointed one will lose the election. These POS liberals really p!ss me off!!!

Jim Carville’s not the only worried one, but he’s worried for the wrong reason! I am scared to death at The Very Thought of putting up with Obama for 4 more years. We won’t have a Country left by the time that socialist gets done taking us down!

For once, Snakehead, think of your country over party.

You should be worried about your country’s chances, not your candidate.

Whoever gets elected in 2012 is going to have a heck of a mess on their hands in 2013.

There is a realistic possibility that the next Presidents main job is going to be shaping the post implosion direction of the country.

I kind of think that’s part of the reason Palin decided not to go for it.

Who wants to be President when the greatest country the world has ever known implodes upon itself. That is going to be a footnote in history to end all footnotes.

“Serpenthead”, to be precise...

I have no doubt that Serpenthead is a socialist,
but he’s a Fabian socialist, one who wants socialism implemented a little at a time so the frog doesn’t jump out of the pot.

‘bammers is a revolutionary socialist, ie, a Marxist. He [still] wants it to come about by the communists’ wet dream scenario Che scenario of a violent revolution where all their enemies are killed and disgraced.

Serpenthead doesn’t want the people to know or understand this, because it sets their timeline way back when they are exposed.

I’d not be surprised if we had to drop back and punt.

IE, we had to go back to the basic Constitution + 10,
let the states fend for themselves financially for about a decade,
then start to rebuild.

Hard to see what Mary sees in him, unless she is suckering us as well.

You’re right, it’s Serpenthead... my bad

Yes. Carville is trying to get his girl into office. He is trying to create an opening for a democrat primary.

Anyone who thinks Carville is simply expressing an opinion, doesn't know Carville.

The man who coined the phrase “It’s the economy, stupid” knows that Obama cannot get re-elected in this depression. He is evil but he is not stupid.

Obama is a one-term wonder, and more and more it is looking like once again we will not get a true Conservative candidate.

Is it any wonder I think the USA is in steep decline. We can’t do anything about the communist Democrats who keep getting elected by their brain-dead leeching voters, but then when it is our turn, we get a socialist-light RINO.

We are doomed. I’ll eat my hat if Cain or Bachmann or other true conservative. It’s John McCain time all over again. Puke.
