    At least Bush doesn't have aides that are communist. This Carville guy is a complete joke. Look at your own freakin party pal. The Obama administration is full of dweebs.

    The GOP don't have a leg to stand on when it comes to them defending The BUSH/CHENEY Administration. Bush used up CLINTON'S SURPLUS and dug a hole so deep WE may never recover. THANKS GOP !!!

    It's not hard to imagine President Bush using the word "CAT" when talking about President Obama. Both Mr. Bush's mind and vocabulary are feeble.

    Sadly, the lack of civility is the new "norm" in our society. Take all the charactures of President Obama... portrayed as a Nazi, as a joker, as a clown, as a witch doctor. All of these portrayals are indications of the racial bigotry that is still prevalent in America. Those who argue otherwise forget that about 15% of the electorate said they wouldn't vote for a black man for president just prior to the election last year.

    It's hard to imagine that's changed since last November!

    Lance, voting for the pretty boys is a bad idea too. Do you actually think you can tell anything about someone from their face? Carville is not a show dog; he's the one that wins the fight, then chases off the other dogs and eats their food. Like him or not, that dawg can hunt.

    Carville is mad he was not the insider to slam Bush.

    Ooooh. CNN gave all of you libs another shot at Bush and by golly you are going to take it rather than confront the truth about ACORN, Rangel, Van Jones, Dodd, SEIU, and Barney Frank. Time for the Palin story of the day CNN? Keep deluding yourselves, what TEA party? Can't wait to run the union stooges out of office in 2010.

    Wow!...all you people hurling insults are the same ones who write "how dare anyone disrespect the president"...keep writing....but do your selves a favor and check your wallets...and read what the pols are actually saying...the public option is far from free and hardly is extensive or built for long term issues...and insurance will be mandatory...you seem to enjoy hating but you are hurting yourselves in the process!

    Out of courtesy, as if, aides should wait at least ten years or until the president is dead before writing a "tell all" book. It shouldn't be written as they're leaving office, especially not during the term of the new president.

    Latimer got it wrong on the quote "This is a dangerous world," he said for no apparent reason, "and this cat isn't remotely qualified to handle it. This guy has no clue, I promise you."

    What Latimer didn't understand was that it was Bush talking to himself about himself.

    I don't see why any would listen to what carville or carter
    have to say about anything , they are both losers.

    I agree with Carville. First time ever, but I agree. There is no class in our government anymore in either party.

    For once (and probably the only time) I agree with Carville and applaud his perspective. ALL Presidents (no matter whether you like them or not) deserve a measure of privacy and if you have the honor of working in the White House, you should also have some personal level of ethics and keep what has been said to yourself. I'm NOT saying you shouldn't "blow the whistle" when it needs to be blown, but this is not one of those cases. Bush, Obama, Clinton, Carter, etc. all deserve respect in that they held the highest office in the land.

    Carville is right! After serving without a wimper, writing a tell-all book about your former boss is very illmannered. This should tell us all a little about the morals of people today.

    James Carville has a lot of political knowledge – I agree with him – this book should be shelved.

    Bush lied to America about WMD and ordered torture to get false confessions to justify the Iraq War. He deserves to be called out.

    This doesn't surprise me at all. Bush talked bad about everyone. Read Matt Taibbi's interview with Bush from the Jan. 2009 Rolling Stone. its a perfect example.

    The sum total of all this turmoil that appears to be surfacing from Obama-protestors and tell-all books point to the fact that people are not secure in themselves. One who is self-confident does not feel th eneed to criticize. The ultimate measureof the confident person is that even when folks are meand and downright nasty, he keeps his head high and refrain from being pulled into the sewer. I think President Obama has been thta way all along and I appreciate him.
    He exemplifies the sentiments of Rudyyard Kipling's poem – " If you can keep your head,when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you....... Then you are a man."

    I cannot wait for the deluge of books to come out on those eight years of illusion, idiocy and irresponsiblity. And it would be nice to know why the American public was so easily swayed and brainwashed by the Bush administration.

    Shame on you CNN, liberals, carville and the entire liberal GANGS. I am an African American and I voted for Obama. However, I won't vote for him in the next election. The problem being that the liberal media like you CNN are stupidy and worse. What you are doing to the REPUBLICAN PARTY is totally wrong and political witchhunt.

    CNN you must be ashamed of advancing one political agenda and not the other. You are worthless media cult. You go to stop this one sided reporting. You are either unpatriotic media or something else a communism maybe.

    You people in the media are the one destroying this nation. One day you will realize that when evething will fell aprt. Remember- nothing goes on forever. You idots.

    sometimes i wish Carville would just shut up... we don't need bush's aides to shut up, we just need clear-minded people to remind us of what a disaster the entire bush administration was, and to state the opinion of bush and his aides comes from the Master of Cluelessness..

    Can't we just let Bush be and allow his natural fall into the first place of 'unqualified" Presidents occur? Like I care what Bush, of all people, thinks of Obama !!! He's PROVEN that he's not credible nor in ANY place to be criticizing ANYONE..

    Now let the last 8 years of that nightmare fade into a distant memory and give the man some peace.
