James Carvelle channels Pseudolus

On Fri­day I quoted Pseudo­lus line about telling you when it’s time to Panic, James Carvelle says its time:

Peo­ple often ask me what advice I would give the White House about var­i­ous things. Today I was mulling over elec­tion results from New York and Nevada while think­ing about that very ques­tion. What should the White House do now? One word came to mind: Panic.

James then fol­lows up with advice that nei­ther impresses Smitty:

Carville writes as though this were some tra­di­tional polit­i­cal prob­lem. As though BHO wasn’t well aware of what’s afoot. As though putting any pres­sure on Holder wouldn’t bring the Admin­is­tra­tion crash­ing down with a dull, rotten-​wood thump. RTWT.

Nor Wal­ter Rus­sell Mead:

The result would show Carville what real panic looks like as stock mar­kets col­lapsed world­wide, busi­ness con­fi­dence crashed, and the global econ­omy went into a reces­sion that dwarfed what we saw in 2008. That reces­sion wouldn’t be Pres­i­dent Bush’s fault; it would be seen by vot­ers as an avoid­able eco­nomic cat­a­stro­phe brought on by a Pres­i­dent who went off the rails.

What James Carvelle doesn’t under­stand is this isn’t a prob­lem of per­cep­tion, it’s a prob­lem of real­ity. Vot­ers aren’t reject­ing Obama because they don’t know him, they are reject­ing him because they finally do.

People often ask me what advice I would give the White House about various things. Today I was mulling over election results from New York and Nevada while thinking about that very question. What should the White House do now? One word came to mind: Panic.

James then follows up with advice that neither impresses Smitty:

Carville writes as though this were some traditional political problem. As though BHO wasn’t well aware of what’s afoot. As though putting any pressure on Holder wouldn’t bring the Administration crashing down with a dull, rotten-wood thump. RTWT.

Nor Walter Russell Mead:

The result would show Carville what real panic looks like as stock markets collapsed worldwide, business confidence crashed, and the global economy went into a recession that dwarfed what we saw in 2008. That recession wouldn’t be President Bush’s fault; it would be seen by voters as an avoidable economic catastrophe brought on by a President who went off the rails.

What James Carvelle doesn’t understand is this isn’t a problem of perception, it’s a problem of reality. Voters aren’t rejecting Obama because they don’t know him, they are rejecting him because they finally do.
