James Carville gets his “neener neener” moment at the GOP’s pending self-immolation


What really sucks is; he may be right. 

With our GOP “betters” going full tilt with Operation FUBAR, the Good Ol’ People who thought they knew better turns out to have known squat.

After a decade of things blowing up in their faces, you’d think the GOP would me more careful playing with matches? Matches like McCain v Obama or Romney v Obama, while you’d think they’d be no-brainers with moderates against the hard left, turns out when the hard left pretends to be moderate and calls the moderate “radical” the GOP implodes.

Bottom line, and the sad reality, is  Democrats are better at selling a lie than Republicans are at selling the truth. Can we fix this?

Newt has the word skills and can think on his feet, but his past is coming back to bite him hard, and leaves be banging my head on the desk every couple of days.

Romney is a robot. In Iowa because another candidate refused to use a teleprompter, his aides took away Romney’s and all he could do on the fly was give the same stump speech he gave earlier in the day.

If you could take to two candidates and smash them together into a well-spoken candidate with no ethics or other troubles, maybe the GOP could pull this off.

But now I’m stuck again banging my head on the desk and reading James Carville describe the pending doom as seen from the left;

At any rate, let’s talk a minute about Mitt. He was your guy — he was methodical, meticulous, married once. He has completely blown himself up over an issue that everyone knew was coming. Have you had a chance to look at John McCain’s research operation on Mitt? Wow. And let me assure you, that thing has been supplemented, expanded, and annotated. God only knows about the Obama people — they’ve got a billion dollars! And how about my friends over at American Bridge, the Democrat-leaning political action committee? Clearly Mitt is merely in the beginning of this tax-return, financial-disclosure, Cayman Island (and God only knows what else) fiasco.

Your new front-runner is one of your old front runners, Newt Gingrich. I would like to take a moment to revel: I cannot personally tell you how pleased I am to see old Newt rise to the top after listening to all of your nauseating, sickening lectures on the evils of government and the importance of family values.

Now, you guys have to deal with a $1.6 million Freddie Mac consultant (who says he wasn’t a lobbyist) who has been married three times. Hope you, at least, enjoy the Super Bowl. It could be your last hurrah for a while.

PS — As my former boss once said, I feel your pain. That’s why I didn’t mention Rick Perry.

I’m glad he didn’t mention Perry. That one still hurts.

So now I sit here, wishing it was all just over already. I don’t even care what candidate the GOP stuffs in front of me, just get me to November with the knowledge that the worst candidate up there would be a better President than Obama.

Just…can he (whoever it is) beat Obama and his leftist attack dogs in the media…?

He’d damn well better.

Remember, when a Democrat tells a Republican anything about politics you have to take into account one fact. The Democrat would rather lie to the Republican than lose a tactical advantage. We should never listen to Democrat opinions about anything political, unless we are absolutely certain they were candid and truthful and spoken to an inside Democrat audience. I think that Democrats really want to run against Mitt. They know how to beat him. Newt will destroy the media forever if he runs, and has a pretty good chance of defeating Obama and also having coattails for other candidates down… Read more »

Carville’s claim to not see the existence of a GOP Establishment that acts in ways not to the liking of the base, I find impossible to believe.

One of your best editorials Erick. I saw “Ides of March” last night on reco of one of our group and wasn’t all that stunned when I saw it take place in Ohio. This state is majorly FUBAR.

But what I was stunned about was lib Clooney using the DEMS and not the Rs in this film. All I can say is, what I didn’t already know about Dem dirty politics I took notes on. 😀

James Carville said that Democrats would have a 40 year run after 2008, he is not a very bright man. With regards to banging your head, STOP THAT….lol! I can accept any of the candidates that are left over Barack and if you just say that mantra over and over, you to can become a believer!

Meh. Save your head, Erick. James Carville is a not-very-well-socialized pit bull who was, lest we forget, neutered by the existence of a certain blue dress awhile back. The left trots him out when they get scared. This isn’t analysis or commentary, it’s psy-ops.
