    “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.”

    If this quote is a true one, then I am not surprised.

    It explains why the largest number of abortions are being performed on black people who don't stop to realize that this is the highest form of abuse against their own race, far worse than slavery ever was. And the real racists among us are those white Democrats who keep insisting that it is a "choice" for a woman to decide because it's "her" body. It doesn't even matter to them that abortions are being performed for sex selection, to choose a boy over a girl - the REAL war on the female gender, done with glee at the hands of the abortionists and those who support them in word, deed, and funding.

    Furthermore, the welfare programs, while somewhat helpful in providing assistance to those who really need help and are unable to be gainfully employed, does keep those on public assistance in a "class." Takers, not contributors to society - squashing traits of self reliance, independence, self esteem with never ending cycles of poverty, lack of motivation, self-pity or feelings it is owed - a subservient class, dependent on the the rest of society - IMO, the slavery, servitude, was just exchanged for welfare....it is still dependence upon others for survival, no matter how it is justified.

    Even if the above quote is not really from James Carville, (Snopes will probably say it is false) it is within the realm of possibility that this is the unspoken attitude among many Democratic operatives.


    What are the last 4 letters in American? ICAN.

    What are the last 4 letters in Republican? ICAN.

    What are the last 4 letters in Democrats? RATS.

    I hope Crabtownboy and Magnetic Poles comment on this. Should be entertaining.

    Carville had sense enough to marry a Republican operative, Mary Matalin!

    Nothing to comment on. This is unsourced, so it could be a total fabrication.

    That quote is on 10's if not hundreds of websites but they are not credible sites. I would like to see something more substantive. And I cannot find one.

    100% true.

    I won't source it. I believe people like MP and crabby should have to look up for themselves what their party elite think of them.

    But, in true democrat fashion, they don't really want to know the truth.

    They'd rather have James Carville tell them what to think.

    This quote rid a blind quote without verification. The only place I could find it mentioned was in a book Total Spiritual Sovereignty by John Casperson. The book is found here: http://books.google.com/books?id=Va...S6xRWA9KqwmJvhiFsZQ&hl=en#v=onepage&q&f=false

    The quote is without citation so I challenge it's veracity.

    All of the stuff I've found trace back to a citation-less quote on thinkexist.com. I have trouble believing it is authentic.
