Did James Carville Say Democratic Voters Were Too Stupid to Think For Themselves?

Apparently so.
That is if this quote is real:"Ideologies aren't all that important. What's important is psychology.
The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That's why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.
Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don't have a clue as to political reality.
What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.
The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn't have a clue than there were Republicans.
Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you're smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That's why I'm a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to
For any of those who wonder why the Democrats make so many promises, now you understand. They think the average voter is "dumb & lazy" & "doesn't have a clue." In short, you can be bought off with with the promise of something for nothing.
On the other hand, despite his claims to the contrary, he knows that truth is NOT relative. Truth is always truth. What he is saying is that Democratic voters are too stupid to recognize the truth & will buy a lie if it is wrapped in a shiny enough package.
As I pointed out, if this quote is real or not has not is not settled. But from how I have seen him operate over the years, it does sound plausible that he at least thinks this way.
So, even if this quote isn't real, it still accurately captures the mindset of those in charge of the Democratic party. He may or may not of said it, but this is what Obama & the Democratic elites running the party think.

    That's a pretty big "if."

    The quote has spread widely among conservative websites (blogs, Twitter feeds etc.), though, so it's clearly confirming what some Republicans -- not Carville -- think about those whose view differ from their own.

    PG: To clarify a few things.
    1 I am a former Democrat, so I have a little more than passing knowledge of what the Democratic mindset is.
    2 I have personally seen enough evidence of people who blindly follow what the Obama/Demecratic Party spreaders of the hay, aka the Main Stream Media, put out there. I have been one of their victims because I am pro-life.
