Another Prominent Liberal Democrat Sees the Light…Maybe?

Posted by hllf on Jul 19, 2010 in Politics |

A quick post today, folks. I know it seems like I can’t get off this theme of liberals finally realizing the destructive nature of this administration’s policies, but it is just too good, too illustrative, and too funny to not touch upon it. The latest to join the group of disgruntled Obama supporters? James Carville.

Now for those of you who haven’t been following presidential politics for a long time, James Carville was the lead strategist in then-Arkansas governor Bill Clinton’s campaign to win the Whitehouse in 1992. He is a very prominent liberal pundit. He was the co-host of the CNN show, Crossfire, a debate program where Carville represented the liberal side of the isle. (The program was canceled in 2005.) He is currently a professor of political science at Tulane University.

Mr. Carville is also the person, who on the morning of September 11, 2001, said the following, referring to President Bush: “I certainly hope he doesn’t succeed.” Now in James Carville’s defense, these comments were made literally moments prior to him finding out about the terrorist attacks, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that he is a liberal Democrat.

Moving on to my point for today: On July 14 of this year (five days ago), James Carville appeared on Cnn’s Anderson Cooper 44. Carville was speaking from his hometown of New Orleans. Cooper asked him the following question:

“What else do you want people to know about what’s going on right now down in New Orleans? I mean there’s a new moratorium that’s going to be in place, that’s a huge concern, but now it sounds like people on the presidential commission are backtracking, saying it may not take six months.”

Now just read James Carville’s response. This is amazing, folks.

“The people here have been so let down. The federal government let us down. They’re killing the economy here. People in the interior department that issue these things don’t have the foggiest idea about life here, they don’t have the foggiest idea about what’s going on, and they have got to do something about this because the federal government is about to kill us.”

And there you all have it. I really have nothing more to add, since Carville has stated it so well. Well, I do have one thing to add: People like you, James Carville, voted for this! And now you are getting exactly what you voted for. And so now, people like me, who are not surprised in the slightest at any of the actions and policies of this administration, wish we could laugh at you and say, “We tried to warn you!” Unfortunately, having been right would be a lot more satisfying, if we weren’t watching the systematic destruction of so much of what this great country stands for: individual liberties, a limited government, the rule of law with the U.S. Constitution at its core, and a private sector built upon the principles of capitalism.
