Political strategist and former Clinton adviser James Carville thinks it's time for President Barack Obama to . . . panic.
Following the results in two highly watched U.S. House elections Tuesday — a stunning upset with a Republican win in New York and and another GOP victory in Nevada — Carville says he can think of only one word of advice for the president: Panic.
"We are far past sending out talking points. Do not attempt to dumb it down. We cannot stand any more explanations. Have you talked to any Democratic senators lately? I have. It's pretty damn clear they are not happy campers.
"This is what I would say to President Barack Obama: The time has come to demand a plan of action that requires a complete change from the direction you are headed."
And then, Carville offers advice to the president in a CNN column. Step 1: "Fire somebody. No — fire a lot of people."
Carville, in his usual no-nonsense approach, then compares Obama's situation with the Russian Army's 64th division at Stalingrad and to Ronald Reagan, George Bush, and Bill Clinton in 1994, when Clinton "fired many people . . . and took a lot of heat for it. Reagan fired most of his campaign staff in 1980. Republicans historically fired their own speaker, Newt Gingrich. Bush fired Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. For God's sake, why are we still looking at the same political and economic advisers that got us into this mess? It's not working."
