    Pat Caddell Opens New Phase of Romanoff "PUMA" Insurgency

    Pat Caddell, nominally a Democrat, is well-known as an on-air pundit for the FOX News Channel. Though represented as a counterbalance to Republicans he appears opposite, Caddell ruthlessly attacked Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry during the 2004 elections--even going so far as to defend the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth and claim that Democratic questions about the military service record of then-President George W. Bush reflected "the anger that's killing my party." Appearing on the O'Reilly Factor in the spring of 2004, Caddell famously remarked that "I think that John Kerry would have a hard time making a case he'd be better on [terrorism] than President Bush." Caddell has claimed, among other things, that "Democratic corruption is much worse than the Republican corruption." In 2003, Caddell asserted to MSNBC's Chris Matthews that President Bush's infamous 'Mission Accomplished' speech aboard an aircraft carrier "sounded like the kind of PR stunt that Bill Clinton would pull. But and then I saw it. And you know, there's a real -- there's a real affection between him and the troops."

    From the comments:

    Has Romanoff lost his mind?
    Does he even care any more about what effect his campaign is going to have on Colorado?
    Let's face it, Pat Cadell's chief role of late has been to go on Glenn Beck's show and provide "liberal Democratic" legitimacy to that guy's insane conspiracy theorizing. That Romanoff would embrace this guy shows just how far off the deep end this campaign has gone.

    Caddell is not unhappy with centrist policies, he slams Democrats on a variety of fronts at every chance, from the left and the right. He's particularly effective when he tag-teams the Dems with Ann Coulter.

    Screw Romanoff
    I said before that I was neutral in this race, but anyone stupid enough to hire Pat Caddell in this day deserves to lose, and lose big.


    If Bennet hires Zell Miller as a consultant, I'll be undecided again.

    This guy makes my skin crawl.

    Need to get sick this morning? Then try watching this video pf Caddell and David Horowitz.

    Cynicism is voter suppression we do to ourselves. h/t Errol
