Begala, Carville: "We Don't Understand Republicans"

Former Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer recently wrote that Democratic strategists Paul Begala and James Carville (left to right) don't understand Republicans. Begala and Carville acknowledged as much, speaking for many of us who ultimately do not comprehend how Republicans think. From "Yes, there's a lot we don't understand about the GOP":

Our esteemed CNN colleague Ari Fleischer says we don't understand Republicans.


We raise our children by the golden rule, and don't understand Republicans who boo it.

We salute gay soldiers and don't understand Republicans who boo them.

We hear about someone who's sick and lacks health insurance, and we pray, "Let him live," and don't understand Republicans who yell, "Let him die!"

We are proud to have helped President Clinton, whose policies balanced the budget, created 23 million jobs and lifted millions out of poverty, and we don't understand Republicans who inherited those blessings and gave us three wars, three tax cuts for the rich and a massive deficit. Indeed, we owe Mr. Fleischer's Republican Party and the Republican president he served a debt we can never repay.

So Ari is right, we just don't understand Republicans...
