You'd have to look long and hard to find more loyal Democrat than James Carville. Carville is a native Louisianan who today on GOOD MORNING AMERICA slammed the Obama administration for their handling of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Also interviewed is ABC contributor Matthew Dowd, the host is George Stephanopoulos.
Some of my progressive brethren may not be happy with my stance on the President's response, but BP's failures to stop the leak should have prompted a much stronger reaction from the administration. Tonight on HARD BALL Chris Matthews remarked on how Harry Truman would have responded; he would have tried to federalize every tanker in the Gulf and use them to suck up the oil slick. To overreach his authority in that way might cost Obama a second term, but you do it because it's the right thing to do....saving the Gulf of Mexico is more important than any Presidency, Matthews said.....and I agree with him.
Mr. Obama....you're needed in Louisiana. Its been 24 days since your last visit, but you're needed NOW. Desperately.

Welcome To My Neighborhood!
Its called "Useless Trivia and Mindless Rants". That's because I adhere to the principle that you can't please everyone, nor should you try to please everyone....so before anyone else rips this blog for being a waste of time or having faulty logic, I thought I'd beat them to the punch, and zing just a bit of self deprecating humor into the title....hey, some people think that's an endearing quality.
Seriously....I hope to entertain and maybe inform, and even teach the reader about a few subjects. And don't be alarmed by the political trappings you may see here. I'm upfront about my political beliefs and affiliations, but I don't wear my politics on my sleeve, and have and always will refuse to be locked into a rigid dogma. This is not really a political blog; its just disguised as one.
My model is probably CBS SUNDAY MORNING, a magazine format. I'll talk about news, sports, TV and films, about music, literature and pop culture, and about the famous and the infamous....and about some people who are out there trying to make a difference in a world that seems to get just a little tougher everyday.
Oh yes...there will be some politics as well.
So pour a cup of coffee, cut a piece of cheesecake.....and stick around for a few minutes.
Occupation- If you believe my conservative friends, I'm a pinko commie socialist out to destroy the very fabric of America's core beliefs.
Liberals think I'm an old school moderate Democrat, and that a guy my age needs to get his hair cut more often.
Just put away that broad brush....
I'm just a "Blue Jersey Guy" who happens to "Bleed Scarlet".
