Skip to comments.Carville predicts a punchout (GOP Takes House, Senate. Obama out in 2012)
Posted on 11/01/2010 10:27:09 AM PDT by earlJam
Mr. Carville, the celebrity strategist behind Bill Clintons 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, foods going to taste very different Wednesday morning. .........
Mr. Carville concedes that he is more pessimistic than most Democrats about Tuesdays mid-term Congressional elections.
He thinks the Senate may go Republican, not just the House, since theyve always, historically, flipped together. Oh, and hes not sure Mr. Obama will run in 2012; he doesnt seem to like the job.
I hope Im wrong, he says of his outlook. Yet he doesnt seem especially troubled. After all, he believes, its not his partys fault, but larger forces conspiring against them.

The Clinton people are starting to sharpen their knives.
The die is cast...
Isn’t Carville the “genius” that predicted Dems would be in power for a generation? What a failure
I agree with James Carville.
Anyone know how and when I died and ended up in Hell?
Thus saith the Snake Head.
Krinton klansman smelling a hilary komeback
The Dems have no candidate...We've got a few possibilities...and that doesn't include Romney...Pence, Jindal, Petreaus???
....and ice covering everything.
So who is the double agent????....
Corporal Cueball Carville
Harry Reid is going to taste like Evander Holyfield's ear.
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.
LOL, very well done.
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.
Yep, Carville is setting the table for Hillary in 2012.
Too funny !
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.
The buzzards can smell the rotting flesh..... soon the will feast.
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.
You BET they are.
The buzzards can smell the rotting flesh..... soon they will feast.
“He doesn’t seem to like the job.”
He seems to like the golfing and the luxury vacations.
Anyone know how and when I died and ended up in Hell?
I imagine it's very cold down there right now...
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.
He may not like the job , but he LOOOOOOOVES the perks.
They have to deodorise Air Force One daily.
I wonder how many times he cheated on sweet Michele?
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!
Remember all the Republicans that came out with the “Reaganism is dead” mantra a few years back? I wonder how that crow is going to taste on Wednesday morning.
Hang on, they’ll be passing out ice skates in just a bit.
Now that was funny.
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.
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.
That’s fantastic! Nice job.
Hillary will be out at State by January.
Then the plot thickens.
Exactly. I expect Hillary supporters to start trashing Obama in droves after the Nov. 2nd election. The Democrats in the Democrat Party Run Media will start it off.
Hmmmm... Sounds familiar. But I don’t remember CNN ever having a serious political show.
Is this the same hack that wrote a book recently about the decade domination of the democrat party? So much for his opinion.
"I vant to suck your blood!"
Joe Biden - 11/3/2010
Unless the GOP nominates a turd candidate in 2012, Obama is out (barring an historic economic boom, but we know that won’t happen).
Where are the Dems going to get an “elder statesman” to tell obummer the news?
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.
You did hold your nose and pull the lever for McCain like the rest of us, didn't you? ;-)
They’ve been sharpening them for at least the last 6 months. Obama is so arrogant, he’s not going to see it coming.
