Carville: 'I'm worried in the general election

Media

Democratic strategist James Carville is no more optimistic about President Obama's prospects today than he was a month ago when he urged Obama to fire his economic staff.

Here's what Carville said Tuesday in an interview with radio host Scott Hennen:

"Look, this is an election that is going to be very difficult for an incumbent president to win. Having said that, I don't know how much more the Republicans could do to try to give it to him than they're doing. So, we'll have to wait and see."

[...]

"Everything worries me in this environment. Nobody’s gotten elected with these kinds of numbers. So, I’m worried in the general election. I profoundly admit that. Again, Romney’s just making a technocratic kind of confidence argument, and he’s really kind of a windsock of a guy. If you don’t like his position on something, give it a day he’ll change it."
