I’ve always been a fan of James Carville even though I disagree with his politics the majority of the time. But this time the strategist is either off his rocker or using the time honored tactic of denial. Politico reports his comments on CNNs “State of the Union” regarding how letting the Republicans kill the health care bill will actually help the Dems.
“Put a bill out there, make them filibuster it, make them be what they are, the party of no,” Carville said. “Let them kill it. Let them kill it with the interest group money, then run against them. That's what we ought to do.”
Now I don’t doubt his intelligence (and often defend it) but come on! There are alternatives out there. One very good one, which isn’t actually new, sent the Whole Foods customers into a tizzy last week!
But then again, its much easier to just ignore alternative ideas and complain when people don’t like yours.
