Carville predicts a punchout (GOP Takes House, Senate. Obama out in 2012)
National Post ^ | 11/1/10

Posted on 11/01/2010 10:27:09 AM PDT by earlJam

Mr. Carville, the celebrity strategist behind Bill Clinton’s presidential campaigns, was warning a “hurricane” would descend on Washington on Nov. 1. The only question: Whether it was a minor or a major one.

In Calgary on Friday, for the Teatro Speakers Series, Mr. Carville was more definitive. It would be disastrous.

“It was said of Mike Tyson, he hits you so hard, he changes the way you taste,” Mr. Carville says. For Democrats, “food’s going to taste very different Wednesday morning.” .........

Mr. Carville concedes that he is “more pessimistic than most Democrats” about Tuesday’s mid-term Congressional elections.

He thinks the Senate may go Republican, not just the House, since they’ve always, historically, flipped together. Oh, and he’s not sure Mr. Obama will run in 2012; he doesn’t seem to like the job.

“I hope I’m wrong,” he says of his outlook. Yet he doesn’t seem especially troubled. After all, he believes, it’s not his party’s fault, but larger forces conspiring against them.

Oh, and he’s not sure Mr. Obama will run in 2012; he doesn’t seem to like the job.

The Clinton people are starting to sharpen their knives.

Isn’t Carville the “genius” that predicted Dems would be in power for a generation? What a failure

I agree with James Carville.

If the little snake could be right!!!!

Take over both!

All Obama likes is LIVING LARGE off YOUR MONEY.

He's already apologizing for Obama.

He's paving the way for Hitlery.

He’s getting two birds with one stone: Setting over-the-top expectations so that Tuesday’s results look like a failure, and greasing the skids for Hillary.

Obama will not go quietly. He’s too arrogant and believes he’s doing a great job. If nothing else, he’s the unwanted guest who just hangs around after everyone has left. The Democrats are going to have to push him out-and it won’t be easy.

I can only pray that this is true. I fear that it is not. So many people seem to be voting in West Virginia, Delaware, Connecticut, Alaska, and Washington State for the one they “like”. Nevada is being stolen for Harry Reid...I fear we will wake up Wednesday and nothing but a few more seats will have changed.

Nevada is being stolen for Harry Reid.

That's probably his only chance of winning. I was in NV over the weekend and saw plenty of campaign signs for Angle, but not even one for Dingy.

I think Mary’s conservatism is starting to rub off on him.

‘bout time. He could be the poster boy for NARL (National Association for Reformed Libs)

I know that he is saying this about barry, just to a set up for a hillary run, but it’s kinda fun seeing the libs eat their own.

40 more years - ha!

As far as the election results, he’s just setting expectations really low for the Dems so that anything better than his dire predictions is a win.

As for Obama in 2012? Sounds like he’s back to cashing Clinton checks.

he changes the way you taste

What does this mean, he changes the method by which one uses his sense of taste, or the way someone tastes when being eaten? And how might this apply to specific Democrats??

Exactly. I expect Hillary supporters to trashing Obama droves after the Nov. 2nd election. The Democrats in the Democrat Party Run Media will start it off.

Unless the GOP nominates a turd candidate in 2012, Obama is out (barring an historic economic boom, but we know that won’t happen).

the DUmmy forums are going to explode on the 3rd. I wonder if the Obamaniacs really thought that the Clintonites made peace after he was elected. All those PUMA signs were just stored away temporarily, not permanently.
