Over the course of the last several months, it has become rather apparent that James Carville is furious with the Democratic Party.
As a longtime strategist for the left, Carville had largely built his following as one of the most outspoken and unabashed strategists of the modern day. But, given the massive failures of the Biden administration, (and the lack of ability of the party as a whole), Carville has turned annoyed and frustrated of late.
His latest rant against his own party comes as the left continues to pour cash into a number of unwinnable Senate races.
Speaking with Vox, Carville bemoaned Democrats raising eyepopping amounts of money for media darling candidates like Amy McGrath in Kentucky and Jaime Harrison in South Carolina in 2020, only for them both to lose by double-digits in the red states.
“They were always going to lose those races, but Democrats keep doing this stupid s—,” Carville said. “They’re too damn emotional. Democrats obsess over high-profile races they can’t win because that’s where all the attention is. We’re addicted to hopeless causes.
“What about the secretary of state in Wisconsin? Or the attorney general race in Michigan? How much money are Democrats and progressives around the country sending to those candidates? I’m telling you, if Democrats are worried about voting rights and election integrity, then these are the sorts of races they should support and volunteer for, because this is where the action is and this is where things will be decided.”
And that wasn’t all:
“B—-ing about a Democratic senator in West Virginia is missing the damn plot,” he said, noting West Virginia has been one of the reddest states in the country in recent presidential elections.
Carville said he’d do everything in his power to re-elect Manchin in 2024 if he ran again.
“Six percent of adults in this country identify as ‘progressive.’ Only 11 or 12% of Democrats identify as progressive. So let’s just meet in the middle and say something like 7 or 8% of the country agrees with the progressive left,” he said. “This ain’t a g—amn debate anymore. Someone like Manchin is closer to the mainstream than a lot of these people think, and pretending like he isn’t won’t help the cause.”
The ragin’ Cajun appears to be just about at his wit’s end with the Democratic Party in 2022, and just in time to watch the group’s implosion with a “I told you so” attitude.
