"Truth is what you can make the voter think it is:" The Carville Spew Returns!

"Does anyone do faux outrage as well as James Carville? So far he’s the only thing completely transparent in the Hillary camp. Like they say: "If you drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you'll find." In this case a low-class political hustler who will do stupid people tricks for food." Michelle Obama's Mirror

Too good to be true, unfortunately. Always check Snopes.

I agree with people who say trotting out this guy is just making people think Hillary is old and yesterday.

What a nasty little man.

Carville may not have said it, but it's the type of thing he's capable of saying when he's telling the truth.

Behind that reptilian exterior is a cunning political operative. That doesn't make him a good go to apologist for Hillary - too, well, ah, reptilian. So, you go, James.

No faith, no fundamental beliefs, no loyalty, he's unfortunately much like what more and more Americans are becoming.

Even besides his obnoxious demeanor, he needs a Chasmatic punch in the face just for being so ugly.

Whether Carville actually said this or not, is not to be trusted with verifying anything. Snopes is run by a couple of hardcore left-wingers who, just like all left-wingers with a media voice, will do what they can to minimize or outright lie about things that reflect negatively on the Left.

Can Paul Begala be far behind?

It is now beside the point, in practical terms, whether or not something was said by someone.

It is much more too the point, and much more urgently important, to push the myths.

I live around people that if Carville himself said this directly to their faces they would not care one little bit as long as the free stuff kept showing up.

That is one nasty, cue ball headed, skinny assed, inbred hillbilly.

Behind that reptilian exterior is a cunning political operative.

Or, in other words, behind that snake-like demeanor is truly a snake.

MOST people, the Entertainment Tonight crowd, think politics is just the worlds biggest and most complicated family fued. It's impossible to figure out who or what actually started this fight, so they don't even try. If these people have any interest in something besides what is the real color of a dress, they will turn to someone they know and ask them to bring them up to date on the matter, or mostly they just use their social skills to try and get a feeling. It doesn't matter if one side is promising free gold coins produced from unicorn farts and the other is saying there are no unicorns, these people will decide we should only get SOME free gold coins and not worry how many unicorns there are.

Like every topic, these people think it is someone else's job to give them the info they need to make decisions. If they don't have that info about things it's not their fault. This country will not survive. No catastrophe will make these Entertainment Tonight people become serious. They will simply follow whichever con-man promises them the most stuff for free. They will support every failed policy, especially the ones tried endlessly for the last century. Because the ET people don't know doing X always leads to Y, they will say we should try X and MAYBE it will work. This also explains why no matter how many times the GOP tries to run the same losing candidates, those losing candidates will be the presumptive candidate for the next race. You cannot outsource citizenship. Being busy isn't an excuse. There is nobody assigned to do the job for you or me. WE are the highest official in the govt. We simply choose to not act, ever.

That sounds like something his wife might have said that he said.

Snopes lies and uses dumpsters full of weasel words. Citing snopes is like citing sharpton - specious at best.

Posted by: ghostsniper at March 11, 2015 8:38 AM

I agree that anyone who takes Snopes at their word is naive and credulous. If you read what they wrote in the link, they're really not denying anything. They just say they couldn't find the quote.

How convenient, eh? If Snopes was unbiased, I might give some credence to their opinion. But they are so deep in the tank for Dems that I trust their word about as much as I trust Hillary's.

Posted by: Smokey at March 11, 2015 12:33 PM

It doesn't really matter if Snopes is left or right. If there is no reputable source, it probably didn't happen.

Certainly, I could imagine him saying that, but that's my confirmation bias at work.

Instead of complaining about Snopes, find the original source. I am sure that if you find it and submit it to Snopes, they will change their page.

Posted by: EarlW at March 11, 2015 6:59 PM

snopes may have said that he did not say it but has Carville ever denied it?
Snopes is as liberal as it gets so they are not necessarily ones to speak gospel on anything.

Posted by: Faith at March 11, 2015 9:21 PM

Those comments sound as if they were taken from The Screwtape Letters and they could easily come from the mouth of Carville.
