"Truth is relative...I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”
James Carville--Political strategist
Perhaps you have been living under a rock for the past 20 years and do not recognize this guy...this is James Carville, Bill Clinton's 'main squeeze.' Matter of fact, most political experts agree, Carville, probably more than any single individual, is responsible for guiding William Jefferson Clinton's landmark bid for the office of President of the United States of America.
Whatever your personal opinion of Carville, there can be little doubt he makes no attempt, at least in this quote, to mask who and what the Democratic Party of the 21st Century is all about, and how they view their 'herd!' You might want to show this to some of your Liberal Democrat friends. Surely this information is nothing new to Conservative political watchers--we have been aware of this all along,
The former Democratic party and all its henchmen view their herd as nothing more than children, awaiting instructions on how they should conduct their daily lives.
We knew it all along, but now someone from their own ranks has confirmed our beliefs!
“Ideologies aren't all that important. What's important is psychology.
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.
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.
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.”
