James Carville Says 80% Of Democrats Are Politically Clueless


James Carville, Democrat political consultant extraordinaire – and former Bill Clinton campaign manager, has astonishingly come out and said what all good Republicans have known for decades: Not only are most Democrats politically clueless; they’re easily manipulated by the puppet masters of their party as well. Wow. James Freaking Carville. Of all people. Here’s an excerpt, as quoted on Amazon.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.”

Bingo. I couldn’t have written that for ol’ James any better myself. Truth be told, I’ve always had kind of a love-hate relationship with Carville. While I’ve never agreed with him on much of anything – unless he was commenting on the failures of his party, which unlike most political operatives, he’s not been afraid to do through the years – this is different. This amounts to a total confession of what I define in the right sidebar of this blog as the quintessential “political lie”:

Liberals saying things they know aren’t true for the sole purpose of exploiting the “less-than-informed” for political gain.

Bravo, James – and thanks for the validation.

  1. Politics has strange…bedfellows? Carville and Madalin, also known as Mary Joe Madalin. I figure it’s personal gain and they done well. Probably at top, top, top of 1 %, right there with Bill and Hill. Underlying forces at work here. Now pass the popcorn. Think new dynasty is why Hill bite the bullet… Hopes for Chelsea Clinton… but of course watch Castro party twins. Hopefully Nov. 6 elections says to all of them…oops…can’t say that bad word here…so hark in my upper nostrils before I spit. Petu.eee. That’s my spelling.

  2. I be pinned. Fellow can’t get it right…Matilin, not Madlin, time after time. Disregard thoughts if can’t even get that right. Just read from now on.

  3. Old “Serpent Head” (Mary Matalin’s term of endearment) has finally got something right…….I love them as a couple and wish they had a reality show. I love the commercials.

  4. James freaking Carville saying that !! It is amazing. This guy always seem to be in total love lock with Obama. Perhaps his wife Republican Mary Matalin, snuck something into his dinner…. his brains, finally !

  5. I like hearing that James has confessed to what I have known for 30 years. However he did leave one thing out, democratic liberalism is a mental disorder. In so many words he did admitt that his party suffered from this serious disorder. The democratic, progressive liberal believes in doing the same thing over and over expecting to get a different result, this is indeed insanity. Carville didn’t say this outright because the 80% would have changed to 100% and this would have got him thrown out of the party, his bread and butter, his marketing machine for his book deals, indeed he danced around the mental disorder a bit.

  6. Wow – this blog post made it to Snopes! They haven’t reached a conclusion about it as of yet, but nice to see The Rat get some play!

    • While I picked up the quote from a site I’ve trusted for years – and also read it on several other reputable sites, I won’t hesitate to post a retraction – which would be my first – if it is ultimately proved to be wrong.

      I do find it interesting that Snopes rates the quote as “probably false” – given that it can find no proof either way. (Not dissimilar to the Regime’s immediate claim that the Benghazi attack was spontaneous and a reaction to a film nobody saw.) It seems to me that Carville has had to be made aware of the quote if it’s false. And knowing James, he’d have blasted out a fiery denial by now.

      Either way, the good news is this: It’s EXACTLY the way these people think – which is why I use the term “political lie”, the definition of which is on the right sidebar of the blog.

      And – thanks for the Snopes reference. I do get picked up by various well-known sites here and there – and it’s always rewarding.

        • As I said at the beginning, the beauty of it is it’s EXACTLY the way liberal elitists think – and it’s the fundamental strategy of their playbook. It’s the essence of what I call the political lie:

          “Liberals saying things they know aren’t true for the sole purpose of exploiting the “less than informed” for political gain.”

          The Democratic Party has done it to blacks for more than 50 years. They’re now trying to set up the Hispanics the same way. Democrats cannot win elections by telling the truth.

          This story was posted on multiple respected sites across the internet. Several of us continued to look for a Carville retraction for more than six weeks – and I still find it curious that it took so long for the denial to come out.

          Snopes? Geez, Rat must be getting famous – or what that be “infamous”?

          • i actually wouldn’t take much of anything from snopes. they’ve been known to lean a little too much to one side or the other. a more reputable site is: Factcheck.org or PolitiFact.org

  7. I think it takes one low life individual to base his life on lies and deceit. This man has no integrity at all. Garbage is what his is.

    • He’s a hired gun. No difference between Carville, Madison Avenue advertising companies and attorneys. All hired advocates. And don’t forget salesmen in general(today we call them marketing personell).

  8. Appears to me both parties are equally clueless. But that should be expected since in practice there isn’t an oz of difference between them.

  9. Again, confirmation that the Obama foreign/domestic policy and Democratic strategy is based upon the Seinfeld Doctrine: “It’s not a lie if you believe it.” (Or as Carville says here, “Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth.”) Incidentally, Carville’s statement could come right out of the bible (Pontius Pilot: “What is truth?”) or Atlas Shrugged (“There is no truth; there are no absolutes; it’s all relative.”)

  10. Linking on IJR, Rat. I hope you don’t mind if I repeat your headline. It’s perfectly worded. I will change it if you want later, at your request.

  11. I CAN truly imagine that sleazy buffoon spilling his guts and saying this! A rare moment of honesty for him! Maybe his wife has brought him around, huh? You know what they say— a good woman has some real power; afterall, she has half (of) the money and all the pu$$y! Go, Mary!

  12. Obama and his bailouts have all!!!!!!! failed Romney because he has made money and created jobs across America is rich because he knows what the hell hes doing””No doubt his Health Care Failed in Ma because they were not prepared the worthless workers so he knows Obama healthcare will not work he learned a lesson but he has created more jobs even with his salary than Obama has did in 4 yrs just because he has money obivoulsly means he knows how to create jobs no matter where and you want to tax him more kinda bs bring jobs to America is the top priority and Obama said blantently that if a company sends a job overseas they get a tax break that is a lie so take your bs and go dude to bring jobs back home you have to compete with over seas companies like giving free rent for years to employee these jobs that’s how they get them over seas get a grip we still pay US taxes and over seas taxes wake up OBAMA

  13. Carville finally says what a lot of us already knew. The clueless follow Obama. When asked why they will be voting for him again, they have no clue. Thanks Carville for nailing it!

  14. WATCH: “The Democrat Stage: The Party of Stupid and Mindless Mob Violence”

    For once I agree with him.

  15. As a Senior Citizen, I have learned much about our government in the last few years. Its shocking how dumb our young people are…something I attribute to the school and the lack of history and Geography and social studies. Sooo, they get to be Democrats. It fits!!!

    This is so scary, but I had the honor of being alive when we were “America” – strong and able to handle anything. Lets face it…they all listen to ABC, CBS and NBC..with all the dummies.

    Its a shame! Thanks Mr. Carville. You turned into an honest American!


  16. Reblogged this on The Voice of 60 Million and commented:
    I wonder if James is trying to position himself as the go to consultants for the Republicans in the 2016 Presidential elections?

  17. Has this been verified? While I agree with everything he supposedly said, where did he say it? Snopes says they can not confirm he ever said this. While I also take Snopes with a grain of salt, I would like to know it is true before passing it along. I just think Carville is smarter than this. He knows how this would look coming from him. So I am a bit skeptical.

  18. Tell us something we didn’t know.

  19. A nice, long ball headed above the fence! The manager’s on his way to the mound at a trot! And of course, the result won’t be news anywhere much…small print in the sports section back at home’s about it.

    I wish I believed that the GOP management was distinguishable…

  20. Very good article. I absolutely appreciate this website.
    Keep writing!

  21. Love it, James Carville. Make it more public if you can. Broadcast it all over the country!!!!!! Let the democrat followers know exactly what you think. There’s room for you in the GOP if you give up your lying ways!

  22. Spread the word, Ms. Daisy. :-)
