Democrats To Rule 'Til 2049? Really?

Some people are just sore winners. It's not enough that Democrats rule right now in Washington, CNN political pundit James Carville predicts his party will stay in power until at least 2049. He makes that point over 288-pages in his new book "Forty More Years."

But we aren't waiting until 20-49 to ask the Ragin' Cajun to explain himself: (not that that's even possible!)

We invited the die-hard Democrat to join us on CNN Newsroom and make his case. He did not disappoint. Listen as TJ Holmes asks him if Democratics deliberately targeted Rush Limbaugh as a ploy to sway young vorters:

Wake up with CNN Newsroom Saturday and Sunday starting at 6 am ET/3 am PT.

    James your a typical politician, even though I like you I believe your wrong. If the middle class doesnt start seeing the burden lifted from them you will see them go back to the GOP and in droves if its not fairly soon! If President Obama in which I voted for doesnt stop the giveaways to the poor. We`ve extended unemployment benefits way to far and now its almost a welfare program! My neighbor was recently over he`s a single parent who is unemployed and is at the point where he`ll tell you that he`s sees no reason to even look for a job because he makes too much with unemployment and help from the state(working tax payer)! Here my wife, son and I are getting squeezed each and every week while my neighbor can go buy prime rib or New York strips as part of his eating expense from the state! Or watch him amass a huge yard toy collection that I could only match if I were to go in debt by using credit cards, its insane that the working guy who works 6 days a week to pay for all these giveaways to people who have no desire to get off the couch if someones going to give it to them! Or I see migrate and more than likely illegals working on every road construction site I`ve seen, those are jobs Americans will do but cant have because Mr. Obama would rather see the illegal immigrant get that job than a citizen of this country, now thats sad when he was the one who promised to create 5 million new jobs as part of rebuilding America, bologny, its going to stimulate Mexico and they dont have the guts to tell the American people. We badly needed a change but people are starting to grumble a bit and if it stays the same the GOP will be right back in business! I know if I dont see a change soon in how my ability to raise and support and prosper to the American dream because everyone from wallstreet to the welfare rat who keeps sucking off me at alarming rates then I`ll vote Republican next time around! Obama getting elected was simply supposed to give Americans back their civil rights and to give back to the middle class of which niether is being done! Mr. Obama has a limited time dont you kid yourself James Carville!

    John King and Blitzer, your friend cheney, say U.S is more vulnerable with Obama, no I am not sure. U.S. is more vulnerable with Cheney, who delapeded U.S and the world, the war in Iraq, for oil, taking the big money, for this compagny to texas, and this Brother W Bush, and this friend republicans., Powell is the good man, Cheney is assassin.

    With all the problems we are facing, our President is trying his best to help us, one of the things that upset s me the most is Bush/Cheney!
    Cheney should not be allowed the opportunity to speak anywhere as he is as crooked as they come! He critizes Colin Powel and grovels at the feet of Limbaugh like all his republican idiots! This is one person who should be stripped of everything as he is a traitor to our country.
