James Carville, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton, turned visibly angry in an interview with Good Morning America about the BP oil spill, accusing President Barack Obama of losing control.
Carville at one point declared, “We’re about to die down here!” He was born in Georgia.
“The political stupidity of this is just unbelievable,” the Democratic pundit remarked. “Here you have a situation where you have eleven hard-working people blown off [an oil rig in the gulf] as a result of corporate malfeasance and maybe criminal negligence as a result of inept bureaucrats who were part of the — you can actually blame the previous Administration for this — and the president doesn’t get down here in the middle of this.
“I have no idea of why they didn’t seize this thing,” Carville continued. “I have no idea of why their attitude was so hands-offy here. It’s just unbelievable.”
“Very seldom do you get something that’s very good politics and really the right thing to do, and that is to get involved here,” he added.
