      •  I think the anger returned after (0+ / 0-)

        he learned that Obama had hopped on the plane to go on a 3-day vacation and only being there a few hours without taking the time to visit any of the devastated areas or talk to the people affected by the spill. It must have been clear by then that this was a phony staged photo op. Also, Obama told one of the Parish guys that he was to call Obama before he talked to CNN - in other words, Obama was responding to/trying to cover up bad press rather than reacting out of concern for the Gulf per se. Anderson Cooper also told Carville that the White House was angry at Carville and attacking him. In their typically thuggish fashion the White House was trying to intimidate him and shut up the bad press, seeming more concerned about their image than the substance of what was happening on the ground in the Gulf. I'm guessing Carville was angry about that, and who wouldn't be after what they've gone through (for the 2nd time) due to malfeasance in 2 administrations.

        Don't let the awful be the enemy of the horrifically bad.
