"James Carville: No more denying it -- New Orleans isn't working"

Letter to the Editor in The Advocate

"When it became public knowledge in 2008 that Mary and I were moving to New Orleans, The Washington Post asked me why we were leaving Washington. My reply was, “I do not want to grow old among strangers.”

Wow, has that paid off.

I literally cannot walk a block in this city without being treated with recognition and respect. As a Roman Catholic and a Democrat, I am guided by the command of the Gospel of St. Luke and the admonition of President John F. Kennedy, who said, “To those whom much is given, much is expected.”

New Orleans has given me much. It pains me very much to say this, but our city is, quite simply, not working. I will spare you a depressing litany of details. We all know them all too well."

James clearly does not have any admiration for New Orleans new Tupac Peace Pole?

I don’t know why it has to be painful to be honest about what is going on in New Orleans.

Because of policies he openly advocates for.

So Carville wants to disown the monster that he helped to create.

It takes a special sort of stupid to still be a Democrat at his age.

Recognize that our city’s strongest asset is the creativity and talent of its citizens.
This is the dumbest viewpoint of New Orleans residents.

You live in a city, not an art studio.

Austin isn’t flourishing because of its “keep it weird” bullshite.

It attracts businesses and industry.

Stop flaunting the stupid “we are creative” bullshite.

It isn’t helping that shithole at all.

He's a dimocrat that votes for dimocrats, he deserves everything the city has to offer.

“g*dd*mn it, Mary Beth. In one hour I got to go meet with a forger to try to change Governor Lester's high school yearbook quote, you understand? So I've got to be able to leave here knowing that this ad plays without you coming and pinching out the waist about ten seconds. Okay? I can't work like that.”

It's the hallmark of their political ideology. Destroy everything with your retarded fricking ideas, pretend to be baffled by it, blame it on something/someone else, then move away from the dumpster fire you insistently created.

There is a reason people call progressives locusts.
