(ReclaimingAmerica.net) Democratic Strategist James Carville, the man credited with strategizing and engineering Bill Clinton’s victorious presidential campaign in 1992, had some words of advice for the Democratic Party when he appeared on Meet the Press this past Sunday.
You can watch the video clip of him at the start of the video contained in the tweet further down this post.
Carville, famous for the sign above his desk during the 1992 campaign that read, “It’s the economy, stupid,” to remind himself and his campaign team to stay laser-focused on the economic issues Americans care about, was his usual acerbic and insightful self – the traits that made him one of the most sought after and successful campaign strategists in modern political history.
According to Carville, the Democrats “whine” too much.
As you’ll see in the video below, asked by Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd of NBC what advice he’d give the Democrats given the fact that they are plummeting in the polls and seem all but certain to lose the House and Senate come November, Carville stated:
“Just focus on what you’ve got, what you’ve done, and what you want to do to make people’s lives better. You gotta go out and you gotta gloat, and you gotta promote…I think a lot of the Democratic base has not been told or informed of the things that President Biden and this Congress has accomplished…Democrats whine too much, Chuck. Just quit being a whining party and get out there and fight and tell people what you did and tell people the exact truth.” [emphasis added]
Watch the first 45 seconds of the clip below containing James Carville and then email [email protected] with your opinion about his comments. Is Carville correct? Do the Democrats whine too much? Are they the “whining party,” as Carville called them?
