    WASHINGTON —The increasing static between Kabul and the White House brings to mind other dicey episodes in American diplomacy. Even dealing with allies can be tricky. Recall de Gaulle. He was heartburn for five American presidents. Even Churchill could be difficult, and he was half-American. Yet for Roosevelt and Truman he could be a trial, particularly when the question of the British Empire was on the table and the future of its colonies. President Barack Obama’s rows with President Hamid Karzai may not put you in mind of de Gaulle or the passing of the British Empire, but there is...

    James Carville accused FBI Director James Comey, the KGB and House Republicans of working together to "hijack an election". Carville also berated network anchor Thomas Roberts for "making excuses" for Comey. "I think this an outrage and I think the fact that the KGB is involved in this election is an outrage and I think the American people ought to take their democracy back regardless of what the press wants to do and the excuses they want to make for Comey. That's what I think," Carville said to the MSNBC anchor Monday afternoon. "This is in effect an attempt to...

    JERUSALEM –Is President Obama attempting to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and replace him with a leftist leader who largely toes the line set by the president for the Middle East?There are indications the so-called social protests rocking Israel were engineered for that very purpose. According to an investigative report in Israel's Maariv's newspaper, the country's protests were engineered by a group of media strategists directed by prominent Democratic strategist Stanley Greenberg, a former adviser to Bill Clinton, John Kerry and others.Greenberg reportedly is working with Israeli strategists who were behind left-wing leader Ehud Barak's successful race for prime...

    James Carville on Tuesday said the GOP could still avoid making Donald Trump their presidential nominee after multiple controversies. “I honestly believe this — there’s some chance Trump is not going to be the nominee,” the pundit said on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” Carville said Republicans are rushing away from Trump after the billionaire criticized a judge’s Hispanic heritage. “What we’re seeing here is a real unraveling,” he said. "I think this is going at a lot faster speed than we can imagine. I just think that when these things in politics start to happen, they just don’t st

    Monday on MSNBC, long-time Clinton ally Democratic strategist James Carville said Donald Trump supporters “do not like the Republican party,” pointing to House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other establishment Republicans as evidence in a comparison he drew to the dynamic between Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, both candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination.

    George Stephanopoulos, a former White House communications director for President Clinton, appears to have lost faith in Hillary Clinton’s handling of her newest scandal. Now the host of ABC’s This Week, Stephanopoulos said Clinton’s entourage has demonstrated that it is “not up to speed.” But longtime Clinton surrogate James Carville still disagrees, and suggested the scandal about Hillary Clinton’s exclusive use of a private e-mail account and secret server would benefit Clinton’s potential presidential campaign.

    Long-time trusted Clinton confidant James Carville inadvertently admitted over the weekend on ABC's This Week that Hillary Clinton probably used a private email address and server in order to avoid Congressional oversight or scrutiny. "I suspect she didn’t want Louie Gohmert rifling through her emails," Carville said. video at link ... Carville attempts to defend Clinton by claiming she followed the law and slammed investigative Republicans like Congressman Louie Gohmert, while at the same time admitted the very problem with Clinton's email secrecy: a lack of transparency and avoidance of accountability during her time as Secretary of State.

    Here’s a feat that’s rarely possible: You go straight from Fox News to Media Matters. Try that on for size, because Democratic strategist and longtime Clinton loyalist James Carville has achieved what seems like it should be the impossible. Media Matters, a lefty watchdog group, an arm of the Democratic Party and perpetual hater of Fox News, proudly announced the news this week in a statement. Carville will be a “reoccurring guest contributor,” according to the lefty site HuffPost.

    James Carville chose these colorful words to describe Rick Santorum after Mitt Romney swept three Republican primaries Tuesday: “He was like a chicken with his head chopped off. The chicken is dead. The only person that don’t know it is the chicken.” The Democratic strategist, not known to mince his words, said in a late-night interview with CNN that Santorum “can flop around all he wants to [but] they’re not going to nominate him.”

    In an interview yesterday with Scott Hennen, former Clinton campaign manager James Carville admitted he was worried that President Obama can't dig himself out of the hole he has dug for himself and the country. He then went on to completely dismiss the candidacy of Herman Cain. Carville: "Everything worries me in this environment. Nobody's gotten elected with these kinds of numbers. So, I'm worried in the general election." When asked about the chances of Cain replacing the President, the 'serpent-headed' Carville said "Herman Cain is not going to be the president of anything.... Herman Cain is a salesman." I...

    President Obama needs to fire a lot of people. That’s the conclusion of longtime Democratic strategist and TV pundit James Carville, who unloaded on Obama Thursday for failing to change his White House team despite months of lagging poll numbers and stagnant economic indicators. “For God's sake,” Carville wrote on CNN’s web site , “why are we still looking at the same political and economic advisers that got us into this mess? It's not working.”

    Carville calls Palin and Santorum 'reptiles' By Eric Zimmermann - 04/22/10 02:39 PM ET James Carville upped the rhetoric against Republicans today, calling Sarah Palin and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) "reptiles." In a fundraising letter for the DCCC, Carville blasts Palin and Santorum for campaigning for the Republican candidate in the special election to replace late Rep. Jack Murtha (D-Pa.). "First there was Sarah Palin. Now we can add another Republican reptile from the past trying to help the GOP win House races this year - former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum," Carville said. The Democratic strategist also had some...

    Hillary, with bayonet tightly between her teeth, advanced with Chelsea beside her towards the grim genocidiers in Tuzla. Her heart beat with sanguine bravery, as she prepared to cut down the screaming, pseudo-sapient madmen standing between Yugoslavians and free health care. It was a pivotal moment for the future of dumbocracy, and it was total, unmitigated male bovine scatology. There are those who think she misspoke, others who believe she exaggerated a tad, and still others, such as myself, who thinks she could open her mouth and fertilize an entire ethanol farm without substantially raising her pulse. Well, that’s why...

Bill Richardson said Sunday he still considers himself loyal to the family that helped make his political career. Gov. Bill Richardson endorsed Sen. Barack Obama, but says he is very loyal to the Clintons. "I am very loyal to the Clintons. I served under President Clinton. But I served well. And I served the country well.

    Even longtime Clinton ally James Carville is acknowledging that Hillary is in trouble, saying that if she loses the March 4 primary in either Texas or Ohio, her campaign is doomed. Speaking at the International Builders Show in Florida on Wednesday, Carville — a top adviser to Bill Clinton in the 1990s — declared: “She’s behind. Make no mistake. If she loses either Texas or Ohio, this thing is done.” After his recent resounding wins in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., Barack Obama holds a narrow lead over Clinton in total delegates, 1,272 to 1,231, although Hillary leads in superdelegates,...

    For Democrats, things rarely get much better than this. In 2008, they’ll be running to succeed an unpopular incumbent, against an opposition that has rarely been more disorganized or dispirited. Polls show a Democratic advantage on major issues nearly across the board. Amid all these favorable signs, it’s only natural that some of the party’s top strategists would be pondering the same question: Wonder how we’ll screw it up this time? “We are a little bit of a shellshocked political party. We somehow or another always figure out a way to blow it,” Democratic strategist James Carville said. “Democrats have...
