Carville on Obama Stumping for Carnahan: “If You Got to Get the Bad, Go Ahead and Take the Good”

July 9th, 2010 by mopns · No Comments

Wow! Definitely not a ringing endorsement of the 44th president of the United States. Our headline quote from James Carville – arguably the ugliest man in politics – is his candid assessment of the choice “rubber stamp” Carnahan had when weighing a decision to have the president fundraise for her Kansas City yesterday. Carville goes on to say, “raise yourself some bank, get your people enthused.”

While she did ‘raise some bank’ at the fundraiser for the elites, ($500,000 according to Politico) Carnahan didn’t do so well with getting enthusiastic people to show up for the grassroots fundraiser:

Hotline On Call:

“Carnahan’s campaign wasn’t able to completely sell out the Folly Theater, where Obama will appear for a grassroots event on Carnahan’s behalf, at the prices they wanted. Tickets once priced at $250 are now going for $99, while $35 tickets are half off.”


The Fix: (WAPO) Almost all Democratic Senate candidates would welcome Obama

 The Pitch: Barack Obama is in Kansas City, but you won’t see him
