This is not the first high profile Democrat to tell Joe Biden to stop debating. Nor will it be the last. While I think it is fair to say that Joe did better than most expected him to, the former Vice President got his tail kicked in last night. Will he show up for 2 more beatings? Not if Carville gets his way …
[Opinion] James Carval, the talking head and super force behind the success of former President, Democrat Bill Clinton, and somewhat of Hillary Clinton, is not impressed with Democrat Joe Biden.
Democrat strategist James Carville said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour” that after tonight’s presidential debate, former Vice President Joe Biden should “think long and hard whether they want to put the country through this again,” Breitbart News reported.
Carvel may have been picking up on the confusion over whether Biden was aligned with radical Senator Bernie Sanders, or not. Carvel had advised Democrats to not build the party around Sanders, whose ideas sound too much like Socialism.
Tuesday Night after the debates, Carville said, “Look, I would hate to accumulate the cumulative years of this panel has, you and the four members of the panel. All of us have seen a lot in our lives. We’re totally ill-equipped to comment on something like that because there’s nothing in history that informs us to what we just saw.
If you look just the number of times Chris Wallace should get combat pay if you just look at the number of times he had to chastise Trump. I can’t count it in the back of my mind. I mean, this event was nothing like this has ever happened in politics, in presidential politics. I never thought I’d say this, but Vice President Biden is going to have to think long and hard whether they want to put the country through this again. This accomplished nothing for Trump, and I think Biden did fine. But it was not a very good night for American democracy at all. I don’t think. It was tough to watch.”
Something has changed for Carvel since June:
That announcment on left leaning media is sure to upset viewers and supporters of Biden’s if they put any weight into Carvel’s experience. Carvel was instrumental in directing Clinton to move rapidly to the Center whenever the public felt uncomfortable with Clinton’s pull to the left, giving Clnton a reputation of being “moderate”, but it is unclear whether the far left radical power shapers of today’s Democrat Party, who are behind Biden will appreciate those concepts at all.
Currently it is hard to see how today’s party, which Biden says is his party, can reach out to the moderates, however Biden is attempting to represent himself as a working class “Joe”.
Carvel may have a good point here, because watching Biden, whose family members stand accused of great financial corrupting, move to the center and try to connect with the working class now may be fruitless.
The Party has lost the Democratic moderates, forcing Biden to align with Sanders for the numbers, however it is not a popular idea with the Center of the party, like the ones who had gotten behind Clinton.
Vox News reported in Feb,” Lames Carville is “scared to death” of the November 2020 election.”
In a rant on MSNBC that went viral on Tuesday evening, the longtime Democratic strategist vented his concerns about the party’s prospects for beating Donald Trump, taking particular aim at the party’s leftward lurch.
“Eighteen percent of the population controls 52 Senate seats,” Carville said. “We’ve got to be a majoritarian party. The urban core is not gonna get it done. What we need is power! Do you understand? That’s what this is about.”
His diatribe took place against the backdrop of an Iowa caucus that had fallen into chaos and amid a rancorous ongoing debate among Democrats over the party’s direction. He took particular aim at Sen. Bernie Sanders, who he fears could lead the party to defeat in November.
Carvel might not be the only one who is scared to death. Numerous Polls show that Trump was highly favored in the Debate.
