Not only is James Carville a scary looking, Skeletor type fella with a voice that is like fingernails on a chalkboard, but he’s also either very honest, very arrogant or very stupid. Either way, read the words of Mr. Carville and tell me whatcha think. Here is the direct quote as lifted from Thinkexist.com:
“Ideologies aren’t all that important. What’s important is psychology.
The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.
Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.
What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.
The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue than there were Republicans.
Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you’re smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”
And the lefties scream it is conservatives who are too stupid to live, huh? Let’s diagnose Mr. Carville’s words.
He equates Democrats to a “herd of cows” I guess to portray the ignorant follow the lead tail mentality. I worked on a farm for a time. Cows will follow the leader to Hell and back. Get the lead bovine to follow you, and the rest will indeed follow along, so I assume that was his reference.
As well he likens the treatment of Democrats as one would treat a stupid animal, as cows are not the brightest bulbs in the pack.
Then Carville gets to the good stuff where he admits Democrats are stupid – so stupid in fact he chose to align with them because it’s just too difficult to fool Republicans. Apparently Democrats do not think for themselves according to Mr. Carville. He thinks ya just plant a seed, stir ’em up and reap the support.
I love the quote “Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.” I have long maintained that Democrats are being led astray with falsehoods all to get them to follow along, and Carville proves this out with his words “That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”
