Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

How many times do we stand behind a horse and get kicked, before we stand somewhere else?

How is that 'kicking' you?

That's right.

It's not.

You guys just like SAYING it.

James Carville is a Democratic strategist and has proven that he knows what he's talking about. He said the following:

People often ask me what advice I would give the White House about various things, Carville wrote on Wednesday. Today I was mulling over election results from New York and Nevada while thinking about that very question. What should the White House do now? One word came to mind: Panic.

Now why would he wanna go and say such a negative thing like that? What the Republicans did to Nancy Pelosi in 2010 they are going to do to Obama in 2012.

But Rifleman has,

James Carville.

Rifleman, you have been beating this same drum, using the quote of ONE man as the 'example' of Obama's 'downfall'...

for five months now.

Whereas, I have examples of Romnye's shakey Republican nomination, from...

x8 days ago.

"Rifleman, you have been beating this same drum, using the quote of ONE man as the 'example' of Obama's 'downfall'..."

I submit that Democratic strategist James Carville is a veteran strategist that knows what he's talking about. Obama's problem is that Carville's advice will be as applicable in Nov. 2012 as when he issued the warning in Sept. 2011. (Four months ago.)

'I submit that Democratic strategist James Carville is a veteran strategist...' - Rifleman | 11:57 a.m. Jan. 12, 2012

And, one man. :)

Vs....

Three polls.

Put as much faith in one person as you like.

I, presented:

The end of the war in Iraq.
The death of Osama Bin Laden.
The economic uptick in jobs.
The end of DADT, that cost $1.3 billion of our American tax dollars.

Also:

The death of Gadhafi (Libya) and Kim Jong II (North Korea) to support that Obama will get re-elected.

Your choice.

Good day Rifleman.

I submit that James Carville knows what he's talking about when he says Obama should panic. Those who aren't hiding their heads in the sand can read the writing on the wall.

"If there's one indicator of the difficulties bedeviling President Obama's re-election effort, it's Florida. To say the state is key to Obama winning another four years is something of an understatement. ........ So the presidents polling in the Sunshine State has to concern his campaign team."

Translation: Obama is in trouble and HE knows it.
