  • Paul Begala is shocked, SHOCKED, that the press holds the Clintons to such lofty ethical standards

    Canada Free Press ^ | 08/25/16 | Robert Laurie
    It's just so, so, SO, unfair Technically, Paul Begala’s job title is “Senior adviser for Priorities USA Action and Democratic strategist, Paul Begala.” In reality, it should read “lifelong Clinton suck-up and media shill, Paul Begala.” He’s been wandering from network to network, defending the Clintons in one capacity or another, for decades. ...And that’s fine. It’s his bread and butter. It’s “what he does.” Special: Something Happened in Europe That Just Lowered Your Mortgage However, it looks like he’s finally had enough. Paul Begala is outraged. He’s fed up. He’s mad as hell and he’s not going to take...

    Full Title: Paul Begala says his Hillary SuperPAC will PAY for a GOP debate with moderators Rush, Hannity, and O Reilly!! Paul Begala sneered through a CNN appearance where he challenged the GOP candidates by saying his pro-Hillary superPAC would actually pay for an 'unfettered' Republican debate with Bill O Reilly, Sean Hannity And Rush Limbaugh as moderators!! Watch the idiot bluster at link: I say go for it. I think they d be surprised about how fair but hard-hitting the questions would be. And let them spend their money on a GOP debate.

  • Paul Begala Didn’t Want Al Gore On The ’92 Ticket (He “would not count out Ted Cruz” in 2016)

    The Daily Caller ^ | March 16, 2015 | Matt K. Lewis
    Paul Begala who, along with partner James Carville, served as chief strategist to Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign, did not want Al Gore on the ticket. “I was not for Gore,” Begala told Bill Kristol recently. “I don’t think he knows that, so hopefully he won’t watch this tape.” Begala went on to discuss playing George W. Bush in 2000 debate prep for Gore: “I kicked his ass,” Begala boasted. “I watched all the tapes of Bush, and I think, as he would say, they ‘misunderestimated’ him.” At least some of the blame, Begala says, belongs to Bill Clinton, who...

    WPIX-TV / CNN ^ | February 22, 2015 | Paul Begala, Democratic Operative
    Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has generated a firestorm by asserting, at a fundraiser for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, “I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the President loves America.” Of course, that’s nuts. Barack Obama’s deep and true love for our country has been a hallmark of his career. “In no other country on Earth,” he said when he was seeking the presidency, “is my story even possible.” Obama said this, it should be noted, in his masterly speech on race — an issue that is America’s most difficult and...

    Sure, it’s Paul Begala, but he’s not wrong — at least, not here. Even more amazing, Van Jones isn’t wrong either in saying that Democrats may need to look harder for anyone else who might still be on the bench. This is what three cycles of decline have produced for Democrats in the Barack Obama era (via Daniel Halper): “If Hillary Clinton doesn’t run,” [CNN's Jake Tapper] asked, “who’s on the bench then?”“No one,” said Begala. “No one. My party–it’s not fair, there are impressive people, that I think could be good presidents, but don’t have I think the...

    CNN via Mediaite ^ | 4:47 pm, November 6th, 2012 | Noah Rothman
    With just hours to go before the first polls close, CNN political analyst Paul Begala expressed some concern that young people would not turn out in support of President Barack Obama in the numbers they did in 2008. Anderson Cooper asked Begala what he made of the apparent drop in enthusiasm among young voters for President Obama. Begala replied that he thought, as an Obama supporter, the lack of enthusiasm among young people was his “single biggest concern.” Begala did say, however, that the president’s increase in support among Latino voters and seniors – a traditionally pro-Republican bloc of voters...

    The Bush guru's new memoir offers a brief and compelling personal narrative, followed by 500 pages of dishonesty and deception. Clinton strategist Paul Begala reviews the Bush presidency. In writing his memoirs, Karl Rove faced a choice. He could reach for history: Fearlessly face the numerous failures of the Bush presidency, account for his role in the destruction of the American economy and a disastrous, dishonest war. Or he could play to his base: Deny everything, admit nothing, assert baldly that white is black. Guess which path he chose? I am not, I must admit, a fan of the political...

    Begala calls Palin 'about half a whack job' Posted: August 14th, 2009 07:15 PM ET From CNN Political Producer Peter Hamby WASHINGTON (CNN) — Longtime Democratic strategist Paul Begala hammered former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Friday — calling her "flaky and an intellectual lightweight." Begala was asked on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer" to respond to a Politico story in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich outlined several ways for Palin to repair her image. Although Begala called Gingrich "a brilliant political strategist," he said giving advice to Palin is an exercise in futility. "Here's the problem,"...

    The Sean Hannity Show (WABC Radio)
    I'm not the biggest Hannity fan, but what he just did to Paul Begala was a work of art. Begala started off with his "Bush is a liar" rhetoric, and Hannity read him a bunch of quotes, to which Begala said were lies, lies, lies. Then, Hannity told him the truth, that all the quotes came from John Kerry, not George Bush. Begala was caught so read handed, that he actually said that Kerry's mistake was in believing Bush's lies. Then he tried to attack Hannity for inviting him on his show and lying to him. I have to give...

    Liberal television pundit and Democrat political strategist Paul Begala has used a liberal blog to try to refute a Cybercast News Service story that quoted him as saying Republicans wanted to kill him and his children to preserve tax cuts for the rich. Begala's latest commentary appears on the "Campus Progress" blog. "Republicans don't want to kill us. They just want to lie about us," he wrote. The Campus Progress blog belongs to the group that sponsored his appearance at the July 13 first-ever Campus Progress National Student Conference in Washington, D.C.

    Just in case I was the only one to see it, last night on CNN Crossfire I witnessed just how low the vain and desperate the Democratic talking heads will stoop in order to advance their ideas. The topic last night dealt with the tragic shootings in Atlanta by Brain Nichols. I thought the discussion was serious, on point, and without any political slant at all, but I should have known that the Democratic sycophant Paul Begala would find some way to apply this tragedy to enforce his Democratic ideology on the viewers. As you read the transcript you will...
