Skip to comments.Carville: GOP Mad Because A "Community Organizer Is Beating Them In A Street Fight"
Posted on 07/16/2012 7:10:00 PM PDT by i88schwartz
"I think that what is happening in the Republican party is this. I think the Republicans are mad. And you know why they [are] mad? Because a Harvard educated community organizer is beating them in a street fight. And they're mad about it because they're used to winning these fights. And Obama people are outflanking and outmaneuvering and beating the Romney people and everybody knows it and the people that are watching this network knows it," James Carville said on FOX News' "Hannity" tonight.
"And you should be mad because that campaign and Romney is not standing up for you," Carville observed. "How can a guy be running for president and know he was going to run for president and not get rid of Swiss bank accounts, because you know that's going to be an issue? He didn't want to do it. He didn't want to go to the trouble. So he gets the nomination and now he has these guys from Chicago outflank him and Republicans and conservatives are duly angry at Romney for not standing for them."

Hey carville. We are winning the swing states and the national polls. Obama ain’t winning jack squat. He’s spent $100 million on ads with no movement at all.
Carville has a point. Romney just kind of sits there. Bet he picks Pawlenty for vp. Yawn.
Bain's a non-issue, stupid!
I saw two numbers today that spell doom for Obama today
The Consumer spending was down.5 for the month which Economist had predicted a 1.5 rise
Only 29% of businesses will hire anyone this year
Thirdly sorry of the 80,000 new jobs 30% were temporary and the number were higher than should be because Nissan and Chrysler did not shut down their plants are they normally do.
Evidently a Harvard education isn't what it used to be.
Oblahblah stirred up the hornets nest of small business owners
by his remarks in Roanoke Friday.
A lot of small businesses = 1 million. Say there are two people owners +
their family = 10 million. Plus their employees.
So now you have ticked off 15 million at least!!! 15 million is a lot of people.
Small business people VOTE.
Cause they pay the taxes.
Oblahblah can’t win unless he either digs up divorce records or
gets his opponent thrown off the ballot for signatures.
When has Oblahblah played by the rules???? Bobby Rush 2000 where
Oblahblah got defeated and Michelle going to divorce him.
But what did Oblahblah learn? Nothing. He’s still the same arrogant ahole.
You just can’t get any uglier than James Carville.
Something I have long considered is that there needs to be a fundamental change to our Electoral College. In order to eliminate the concept of the "Fly over State" we need to reduce the number of electors per State to 1. Each State has the same importance as the next. No super States such as California or New York, Arizona and Idaho would have the same electoral significance as the former. Every candidate for the highest office in the land would need to court all 50 States (or 57 for some...) and win that majority in order to assume control.
“Hillary will be elected president in 2008”, “oral sex doesn't count as sex”, “Conservatives are lying about Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. We should take the president at his word. I am certain he did not have a relationship with Monica Lewinsky” and “drag a $100 bill through a trailer park and you can get women to say any lie about President Clinton” (Paula Jones testimony).
These are just a few of the words of wisdom from this lying slimeball. I may not have the wording of the quotes perfect but the meaning is correct. Carville is a paid liar. No one should take what he says seriously.

This is the same Snakehead SOB who was criticising Obama, but now has his head back in it’s original place up his anus.
Nope. Which, given what he hangs around with, is quite remarkable, if you think about it.
Granted but those numbers don’t resonate that well among the Walmarters and ESPNophiles. What resonates with Jane Q Publius is a full on vicious attack of the Bishop for being a soft dandy and the reckoning that Mittens won’t do a damn thing about except squeak like a little girl and ask politely for an apology.
Where is the head ramrod that destroyed via personal attack the Herminator, Newt, Santorum and Mrs Palin? Where is that guy?
This is all a set up. Romney is Bob Dole with a dress on. I say Romney gets sad and drops out within 8 weeks. Ptui!
The best the DNC can come up with as their standard-bearer is a fraudulent man-who-never-was.
A cardboard-cut-out make-believe-president.
Of course, for DNC’s owners, a puppet-president is just what they are looking for. A guy who will just read the prompter and sign whatever they put in front of him and otherwise stay out of Dodge.
The putz head sounds like he wants in on the action, only not the twinkie’s action, probably for fear of the wookie. He doesn’t want to go through the domineering woman thing again.
“community organizer” NOT! He was a community agitator....now he is a national agitator! I bet he has read every book available on Hitler’s tactics of persuasion....
So Far, Romney is “fighting” like Little Lord Fauntleroy, or Richie Rich.
He had better take off the gloves and hit back hard, or he is going to LOSE.
Remember, this is the same idiot who wrote a book stating that the Democrats would dominate national politics for the next seventy-five years. I’ll bet that sold real well after 2010.
Hey, Serpenthead, check this out:
So carvilla admits that 0bama is only good on the affirmative action street level?
” - - - community organizer is beating them in a street fight.”
Yep. And our sorry Romney RINO is determined to lose by a bigger margin than McCain lost to Obama, the Kenyan Commie Chicaguh gangstuh.
He's in it to take a dive. Just like Juan, and Awful Dull.
Problem is Stinky stinks soo bad the flop horse will win no matter how hard he flops!
The swish is going to scratch little Lord Fauntleroy and pull his hair, unless little Lord Fauntleroy can muster the daring to slap the swish.
Mary needs to get Carville’s meds re-checked. They seem to need daily adjusting. He is going off the rails again.
Travis, we’re not seeing the real fight. Carville and the drive-bys are what we see - and that will always be Obama-slanted.
The media fight on the ground is different. You can get a better picture of it here:
Heh. We both thought of lil’ Lord Fauntleroy when thinking of Willard. Not good for the Massachusetts Moderate (which I suppose is a Flyover Flamer).
Maybe he was in Harvard maybe he wasn’t... Theres no records..
Actually theres almost no records about Obama at all... anywhere.. available..
He must be hiding something.. afraid of something coming to light..
Maybe he was a foreign student.. from Indonesia.. or “somewhere”..
Total blackout on Obamas history.. with the main stream media blocking or spiking any news about his past...
He may be a murderer or child abuser.. or drug dealer..
who know.. maybe even a known Marxist political operative..
Not pickin on you, Travis, just using your post to make some points that I think most are missing.
If you look at the link I posted above, you can see the total spending by Romney and Obama and their PACs. You can see that these aren’t national buys, but targeted states. So most of us are not seeing the media battler (other than talking heads on Sunday.)
We’re also not seeing the ads that are being run. A great many are by Crossroads and Restore Our Future - which are returning fire on Obama, big time.
I don’t think many have seen this Romney ad either, which, IMHO, is quite effective, the video is from Obama at his nominating convention:
Yeah, that'll work........
Carville likes to be outrageous, but most of the pundits who appear on MSNBC make him look like a fairminded moderate by comparison. (That's just my impression--I find it hard to watch MSNBC for longer than three seconds at a stretch.)
The baby next door to me could beat the Rinos in a Stree fight. LOL They only get nasty when they see a conservative fixing to kick their sorry butts.
Dick Morris’ comment on Hannity as he appeared just after the bald cajun, something to the effect that “it would have been better if there were English subtitles at the bottom of the screen when he was talking”.
Go for Maine/Nebraska Congressional District Method. One elector from each congressional district plus two elected by majority statewide vote.
Result: all close states become "battleground states" because the same number of votes(2) are being fought over by winning the state vote. District votes keep it close to "one vote one value"
Unlike your suggestion it is Constitutional. Unlike National Popular Vote it is workable, and keeps to the spirit and intent of theConstitution.
OMG of all the possibilities pawlenty is the world’s worst. He sat on his a$$ while Al Frankin stole the Senate seat, He had to pull out of the GOP primary before it even got started, and he looks like he is making sand castles when he speaks. Please not he!!!
Hey carville... **** you. If I ever meet you... I will spit in your face.
There is a war in the community he organized that kills people faster than either the war in Iraq Afhganistan
His organization is a disaster, a murderous disaster
Carville was dead right and we all know it.
Mittens is a disgrace in how he is running this campaign so far. Between hanging out at the vacation home, not responding to the attacks, etc etc, its like he is trying to lose.
Really. Al Sharpton has the same job description (community organizer) and he’s only a high school graduate!*
*All right, it was through social promotion...but, still...
That’s right. And now Obama has opened himself up for the scrutiny he never got in 08. Now we can talk about the shady land deal he made with his top fundraiser who is a convicted felon. Obama was his pal for 20 years. And about the sale of Obama’s senate seat. He was tight with blago. Do people honestly believe he didn’t know about the sale of his own senate seat? The one he attained by smearing his opponent? Or how he lied about Ayers just being a guy in his neighborhood? Let’s dredge it all up.
Whenever anyone points out Obama's accomplishments and mentions the term "community organizer" we should retort; "Oh, you mean like Jesse Jackson?"
Riling up the folks is job one for the community “organizer.”
This morning on FNC they reported the story of a bus driver who managed to catch a 7-year-old girl as she fell from the air-conditioning unit of her apartment, third story apartment....she was dancing on top of the air-conditioner (”special needs” child). He was very lucky to be in the right place at the right time and save her life. He’s a black man who has now done more good in his life than Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson put together, but no one had ever heard of him before.
Dividing a state’s electoral votes by congressional district winners would magnify the worst features of the Electoral College system.
If the district approach were used nationally, it would be less fair and less accurately reflect the will of the people than the current system. In 2004, Bush won 50.7% of the popular vote, but 59% of the districts. Although Bush lost the national popular vote in 2000, he won 55% of the country’s congressional districts.
The district approach would not provide incentive for presidential candidates to campaign in a particular state or focus the candidates’ attention to issues of concern to the state. With the 48 state-by-state winner-take-all laws (whether applied to either districts or states), candidates have no reason to campaign in districts or states where they are comfortably ahead or hopelessly behind. In North Carolina, for example, there are only 2 districts (the 13th with a 5% spread and the 2nd with an 8% spread) where the presidential race is competitive. In California, the presidential race has been competitive in only 3 of the state’s 53 districts. Nationwide, there have been only 55 “battleground” districts that were competitive in presidential elections. With the present deplorable 48 state-level winner-take-all system, 2/3rds of the states (including California and Texas) are ignored in presidential elections; however, 88% of the nation’s congressional districts would be ignored if a district-level winner-take-all system were used nationally.
Awarding electoral votes by congressional district could result in third party candidates winning electoral votes that would deny either major party candidate the necessary majority vote of electors and throw the process into Congress to decide.
Because there are generally more close votes on district levels than states as whole, district elections increase the opportunity for error. The larger the voting base, the less opportunity there is for an especially close vote.
Also, a second-place candidate could still win the White House without winning the national popular vote.
A national popular vote is the way to make every person’s vote equal and matter to their candidate because it guarantees that the candidate who gets the most votes in all 50 states and DC becomes President.

In 1800, Thomas Jefferson argued that Virginia should switch from its then-existing district system of electing presidential electors to the statewide winner-take-all system because of the political disadvantage suffered by states that divided their electoral votes by districts in a political environment in which other states used the winner-take-all approach:
while 10. states chuse either by their legislatures or by a general ticket [winner-take-all], it is folly & worse than folly for the other 6. not to do it. [Spelling and punctuation as per original]
Indeed, the now-prevailing statewide winner-take-all system became entrenched in the political landscape in the 1830s precisely because dividing a states electoral votes diminishes the states political influence relative to states employing the statewide winner-take-all approach.
