Carville to GOP: You have a disaster on your hands - CNN.com

Quote:
Memo to Republican Establishment:

I would send this memo to each of you individually, but I'm not sure exactly who you are. I've been told that you exist and that people like my colleagues Bill Bennett, Karl Rove, and Bill Kristol are charter members of it.

I am assuming you are out there and I assume there are more than three of you. At any rate, I thought I'd take a moment to catch up with you and make some observations on how things are going for your party.

Let me break it to you gently -- you've got a first-class disaster on your hands. I know you boys thought this thing would work out and you would be able to whip the Republicans in line to fall in behind Mitt (I assume you are all males but if there is a female in the establishment, I apologize.) Not going too good, is it fellows?

It's been a terrible time to be a Republican. There have been many moments during this process that have caused me great joy. Certainly the events of Thursday, ending with the CNN debate, and even the Fox debate Monday night, have helped ease the pain of my beloved Tigers' and Saints' recent defeats.

I mean, most people thought it was kind of a watermark when your Tea Party gang booed the golden rule. You know, I've spent some time in Philly and they have always thought they were pretty radical because they actually booed Santa Claus and Willie Mays. Philly, I've got news for you -- you ain't got nothing on South Carolina Republicans. They just aren't buying any of that do-unto-others garbage.

I actually thought my favorite moment of this delightful process was when one of your eight front-runners, Herm Cain, (as Sarah Palin calls him) actually ran an ad with his campaign manager endorsing him. (Rove, why didn't you think of that in 2000? Imagine the headline: "Rove endorses Bush.")

The climax of that delicious ad is when he actually takes a drag on a cigarette. But my favorite thing about Herm's campaign manager is that he is the only person in the history of the world that was actually barred from political consulting. Let me tell you, I've been in this business for quite a while and I've never known of anyone other than Mark Block to be suspended from practicing this profession.
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.

and Mitch Daniels is going to step up.

We'll see who is laughing, then.

James Carville: Obama should ‘panic’ - Mackenzie Weinger - POLITICO.com

Quote:
James Carville: Obama should ‘panic’
9/15/11

Democratic strategist James Carville has just one word of advice for President Barack Obama: Panic.

In a CNN op-ed, Carville said Tuesday’s two special election results are a warning to the White House – and a sign the president must make drastic changes now to stave off the Republican momentum.

“People often ask me what advice I would give the White House about various things,” Carville wrote on Wednesday. “Today I was mulling over election results from New York and Nevada while thinking about that very question. What should the White House do now? One word came to mind: Panic.”

Carville said Democrats are “past sending out talking points” and said he would tell the president, “The time has come to demand a plan of action that requires a complete change from the direction you are headed.”

Carville’s advice: “Fire. Indict. Fight.”

Obama must fire someone – “No – fire a lot of people” — because the current team is just not working, Carville wrote.

The guy just needs attention every once in a while.

Apparently they called it for Newt already. How long ago did the polls close...?

So...

Iowa- Santorum
New Hampshire- Romney
South Carolina- Newt

Are there any signs surely pointing towards the nominee yet?

Newt, glad the race continues and the GOP establishment must resharpen their knives.

Mitt had a wonderful line near the end of his speech tonight. "If you believe the disappointments of the past 3 years are a detour--not our destiny... then I ask for your vote."

Great line.

agreed. we need to get back on the Bush/Cheney path of endless war, endless deficits, and lower taxes for the wealthiest among us.

maybe Mitt will help us bomb Iran!

This is all very 2004 all over again. The sitting president is ripe for the picking and the opposing party can't find an electable candidate to run against him.

At least the Newt/Obama debates would be entertaining.

Great stuff. Hopefully he's suddenly raking in gazillions so he can properly fight Romney in Florida? Gingrich stealing it would be a dream. Hilarious.

Congratulations, you're becoming as skilled as our president in erecting the false construct that only two choices are before the American people this fall; the president's vision and "the failed policies that got us into this mess."

this is too easy:
Quote:
Let me just say that I believe the debate we're going to have with President Obama over the next eight or nine months, the outlining of the two Americas. The America of the Declaration of Independence, the America of Saul Alinsky. The America of paychecks. The America of food stamps. The America of independence. The America of dependence. The America of strength in foreign policy, the America of weakness in foreign policy. Those two choices, I believe will give the American people a chance to decide permanently whether we want to remain the historic America that has provided opportunity for more people of more backgrounds than any country in history, or whether in fact, we prefer to become a brand new secular, European-style bureaucratic socialist system.~ Newt Gingrich, 1/21/12

i though our choices were between freedom and socialism?

I guess there is a sort of high speed car crash option? I'm not really sure who best represents that though.

The whole thing is hilarious and yet makes me want to weep all at the same time.

Great line.
Yeah, now if only I could believe he'd actually deliver on that line.
