James Carville: Given a Choice I'd Watch the Debate Rather Than Obama's Speech

Former presidential adviser James Carville thinks Obama blew it on the jobs bill speech:
Democratic strategist James Carville told me that the White House was in the wrong when it requested that the President address Congress on the same night and time as a Republican presidential debate.

“I do think this is a really big debate and I think the White House was out of bounds…in trying to schedule a speech during a debate,” Carville said on “GMA.”

This will be Gov. Rick Perry’s first debate, and as Carville said this morning the stakes are high.

“Given a choice between watching a debate and the speech I would have watched the debate and I’m not even a Republican or even close to being a Republican,” he said, adding it will be a “barn burner.”
Carville knows when you can and cannot get away with political games, and he knows Obama got burned on this one and it was his own fault.
