James Carville Fool for Hire

James Carville demonstrating once again the utter lack of any new political ideas on the left in this piece at the Financial Times. Carville suggests with a straight face that maobama needs to blame Bush more.

No really.

Ok, as soon as you have picked yourself up off the floor you should read the whole thing. Two points in particular are stunning in their audacity, and of course lack of context.

"...It was under Mr Bush that the deficit spiralled out of control as we fought an unnecessary and endless $3,000bn war in Iraq and enacted the largest unfunded entitlement programme in history with the Medicare prescription drug benefit..."

Really? Has cahirman maobama ended this war as he promised on the campaign trail?

The unfunded mandate that is the prescription drug care benefit?!!

Are you serious?

Has Carville been hiding in a cave with Osama Bin Laden? While I was and still am opposed to the prescription health care benefit, Carville expects to be taken seriously while citing this as an example of government foolishness? Has he missed out on the entire maobamacare debacle? Maobamacare makes the prescription drug care benefit look like chump change in comparison.

Let's hope that the White House takes Carvilles advice, and maybe for a bonus they could send him out to campaign for all the open Democrat seats this fall. That seems to be working about as well as blaming Bush for everything that is going wrong today, one year into chairman maobamas reign.
