James Carville: ‘The Tea Party Is Over’
Politicker ^ | 6-27-2012 | Hunter Walker

Posted on 06/27/2012 7:46:42 PM PDT by bimboeruption

Liberal political consultant James Carville sent a fundraising email to supporters of upstate New York congresswoman Louise Slaughter entitled “The Tea Party is Over.” In the email, Mr. Carville claimed the Tea Party isn’t entirely finished, but he said they can be eliminated by donating to “proud Democrats like Louise Slaughter.”

“These Tea Party Republicans have worn out their welcome. But I’m telling you — getting rid of ‘em won’t be easy. They’re not leaving on their own. We’re going to have to boot them out the door like unwanted house guests,” Mr. Carville wrote. “That’s why we’ve got to get behind proud Democrats like Louise Slaughter to make sure we can win a Democratic Majority.”

Mr. Carville pointed to the conservative mega donors Sheldon Adelson and the Koch brothers as evidence Democrats need to open their wallets if they want to take out the Tea Party and win a majority in Congress.

“With the Koch boys, Mr. Rove and a Fat Cat Las Vegas casino mogul writing multi-million dollar checks to try and buy this election, it’s going to take every last one of us kicking in what we can to make sure we reelect good folks like Louise and win a Democratic Majority,” Mr. Carville wrote.

Ms. Slaughter is facing a challenge from Republican Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks. Ms. Slaughter currently has $670,189 cash on hand compared to Ms. Brooks’ $367,583. Despite Ms. Slaughter’s financial advantage, Ms. Brooks is seen as a formidable candidate and is rather popular in the district, which is favorable to Democrats, but grew more Republican through redistricting.

Heh, just read this elsewhere... If the Tea Party is over, then the Democratic electorate is also over. Maybe the two are intertwined?

LOL Dream on, James. We have had 7 victories so far this election and it’s just the primary elections. You Dems are toast in November.

Carville says a lot of things. What he says isn’t always what he means. Interesting fella that one is. Don’t trust him but he’s always worth paying attention to.

We’ve hardly started, to be very honest. Yes allot of the people were co-opted by the establishment, not all though.

How about the Occupy freeloaders? Where did they go? (Other than back to their mother's basement?)

OPPOSITE!

He freaking dreams it’s over. And if and when the Tea Party becomes mainstream, we will abandon it and start something else.

I know God’s book says the serpent was the craftiest of all the animals in the field, but this particular serpenthead isn’t.

Besides who believes anything that comes out of his or his wife’s mouth anymore anyway?

I don’t think anyone was co-opted by the establishment.

The establishment still has control.

For now.

He’ll be called wrong by the first liberal that blames the TP for something.

I predict that will occur in less than 48 hours.

What Tea Party is he talking about? My granddaughter had a tea party with her friends last week and that is over, who would have thought he was so focused on little girls.

Now that response is funny - sad, but very funny.
Well, well, well...... James... as for the T.E.A. Party here in Wisconsin... How did that recall election turn out for ya?

BWAAAAAAAA BWAAAAAAAAAAA HHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAA HHHHAAAAAA

We just don’t whine in public. We’re right here and we aren’t going anywhere except to the POLLS in November. Get that wastebasket ready, James!

I think that more so than most Dems/socialists/Marxists, Mister Carville is fully aware that he is lying (and enjoys it.)

Didn’t he write a book a while ago saying the Dems would win elections for the next 40 years?

I think he wrote it right after Obama’s election.

The 2010 election made him look prophetic. Indeed!

CA....
