(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) As President Joe Biden’s approval rating plummets and three-quarters of Americans agree that the country is headed in the wrong direction, infamous Democrat strategist James Carville has confessed that he is “petrified” about his party’s prospects in the 2022 midterms, Breitbart reported.

The Cajun-speaking, straight-talking campaign adviser for former President Bill Clinton is best known for explaining Clinton’s political prowess with the eminently quippable “It’s the economy, stupid.”
However, that simple maxim has now turned into his own party’s worst nightmare with current economic conditions under the Biden administration surpassing the catastrophic Carter administration and rivaling even the failed stewardship of the Hoover administration that ushered in the Great Depression.
For Sharpton, as usual, it was all about race.
“Black and brown voters, who make up the backbone of the Democratic Party, are being squeezed the most [by inflation],” Sharpton said, as he pressed Carville on whether the Democrats have any plan heading into the 2022 midterms.
Carville had nothing to offer in response except higher taxes and complaints about a conservative Supreme Court.
“Let’s tax these profits and give people some relief,” Carville said. “You can do that.”
A sign of the impending Democratic catastrophe was Carville’s inability to deliver a coherent positive message on behalf of his beloved party.
“Common sense tells you we shouldn’t be restricting people’s freedom,” Carville ranted as he encouraged the Democratic-led federal government to abort babies, issue crippling environmental regulations and confiscate Americans’ guns.
Even as the Liz Cheney-loving Carville told Trump-supporting Republicans to “repent, the end is near,” he suggested that a “voter intervention” was required in order to save the country.
“If this country does not have voter intervention, I am not optimistic about its future,” Carville told Sharpton. “I wholly endorse the . . . strategy of voter intervention, but I am not a voice of confidence at all.”
“Yeah, it’s a scary time,” Sharpton responded.
Leftist despair is warranted in light of recent polling which suggests that nearly 75% of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, according to The Hill.
