Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Carville said he thinks Obama relishes the commendation he's received from deficit hawks like New York Times columnist David Brooks and host Joe Scarborough. Asked by co-host Mike Barnicle how the President will respond to the outrage from the left-wing of the Democratic Party, Carville was blunt.Ah well, people can hate it. But if DAVID BROOKS and the WASHINGTON POST and JOE SCARBOROUGH agree, all's awesome!
"I think he likes that," Carville said. "I don't think he's upset. He got a very favorable Washington Post editorial. 'Morning Joe,' very favorable commentary right here. I guarantee you if he's up watching this right now. Got a good David Brooks column. He's kind of excited this morning. This is kind of important to him."
As if Washington wasn't toxic enough already ...
I'm not saying that Barack Obama actually thinks this way, he might or might not. I can't read his mind. But as far as Carville and Scarborough and the rest of these horrible people think, that's all that matters.
