40 Years of Dem Dominance? George Stephanopoulos Fails to Quiz Carville on his Poor Prediction
Carville on Thursday appeared on Good Morning America to discuss
Tuesday's Republican landslide, but faced no questions about his
erroneous prediction that Democrats would enjoy 40 years of dominance.
On May 4, 2009, Carville stopped by GMA to tout 40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation, his book on the subject. An ABC Graphic hyped, "Democrats 1932-1968, Republicans 1968-2008, Democrats 2008-2048?"
In light of massive GOP victories, Stephanopoulos also could have questioned his friend about a quip from the 2009 appearance: "...These tea baggers, they turned everybody off. There were a bunch of like 75-year-old cranky white guys mad at everything. It just couldn't have been a better event for the Democratic Party. I hope they come back and tea bag some more."
