As an admitted cocaine user, we’re sure Obama’s jonesing for a hit these days.

Democratic strategist James Carville said Monday in light of President Barack Obama’s declining poll numbers, maybe he should take a page from an infamous Canadian mayor.

“I think the best thing he can do is take a toke on the mayor of Toronto’s crack pipe, because his numbers are about 48,” Carville joked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” referring to Rob Ford, who has admitted smoking crack.

On a more serious note, Carville said in some ways, the falling poll numbers are overblown, and Obama’s record speaks for itself.

“I think we can stop putting the nails in the coffin here. We can admit that there’s some real, deep, fundamental problems with this president. But I think we’re throwing the dirt here too soon,” Carville said. “The deficit is dropping as a percentage of GDP faster than any time since World War II. He saved the auto industry. Health care costs are flattening better than any time in the last 20 years. Teenage pregnancy is at an all-time low.”

We think Carville needs to hit the pipe himself.

    Of course the deficit is falling! Obama pushed the pedal to the floor for four years and even he realizes that we can’t justify doing “emergency” spending any longer.

    It is actually true that the deficit has been improving slightly, but no thanks to Obama. The decrease came because of spending cuts forced by repubs, which Obama constantly opposed, and often threatened to shutdown the gov to stop. Typically of a dem liar like Carville to have Obama take credit for the results of a policy he has constantly opposed and fought.
