GOP leaders: National security will end Carson and Trump campaigns

Donald Trump and Ben Carson have demonstrated more staying power than anyone predicted. But now, after the terrorist attacks on an American ally, Republican elders think their party’s flirtation with inexperience is nearing its end.

The reemergence of foreign policy atop the Republican agenda will force voters to reevaluate the outsider candidates, particularly as both Trump and Carson display a lack of knowledge about national security and the terrorist threat, party stalwarts said.

“The losers are going to be Donald Trump and Ben Carson on national security,” said Katon Dawson, the former chairman of the South Carolina GOP. “As the Republican base sobers up, they are the two, if this story lasts a long time, it's going to hurt."

Indeed, in interviews with current and former GOP chairs, veteran operatives, lobbyists and strategists, the long-held conviction that neither Trump nor Carson will win the Republican nomination has only strengthened since the attacks in Paris last week.

Fred Malek, who has advised multiple Republican presidents and is not affiliated with any contender this cycle, said the inexperience Trump and Carson reveal in their rhetoric will drive GOP primary voters toward another candidate.

Desperate idiots will conjure up desperate ideas. An administration that has bankrupted the country, now has no manufacturing base, has no real job base, supports a "to big to fail" banking cartel (their buddies), has a round robin affair with the wall street crowd,institutes illegal programs such as ocare " which is failing", attempts at every turn to circumvent the Constitution ( gun control), attempting to let UN policy usurp the Constitution,instituting Sharia law in our courts, opens the borders to anyone that wants to walk in terrorists included, has made more enemies world wide by covert means in the last ten years than the country has had in the last one hundred and fifty years. This is the short list

Vote Trump and Carson.Get rid of these bums. They couldn't run a whorehouse in an Alaskan mining town.

LMAO! Trump is already WAY ahead of the RNC RINO group with ideas to handle the muslim invasion.
First, he is willing to call it like he sees it, "islamic terrorists".
Second, he has stated all illegal muslims as well as any other type of illegal alien HAVE to go.
Third, he's going to "build the wall".
Fourth, and most important, he's identified the BEST humanitarian plan for the muslims and Christians of the middle east, build a "safe place" in their own country.
Result??? Trump wins in a landslide!
Carson??? Not so much.

MORE B.S., RIDICULOUS....!! 

  To quote Barry Goldwater,;  " Extremism in the defense of  Liberty is no vice; Moderation in the pursuit of Justice is no virtue ."

  It's time we resurrect the " ways of our forefathers " and live by the words of our nation's PATRIOTS !!!

Who's better? Romney...McCain? I think not. I wouldn't trust McCain with anything involving responsibility. Bought, and paid for.

Is this a threat? They want to keep the status quo so much that they will resort to murder of these frontrunners? I am reading between the lines. 

It seems they are so angry that their men are at the bottom of the poll that they will put out any statement that might change things the way they want it to be!

GO TRUMP; GO CRUZ... and watch your back!

Well they can just sit on their collective  rears and watch what we vote for.  If they like Bush so much, invite him home for Thanksgiving dinner and keep him.  We don't want him.

Disagree. They will actually listen to the military generals and other foreign policy experts. You don't need experience to know that a force or country wants to destroy us and that you can't shut your eyes and hope they go away like Obama has done.

They will not be tied up in political favors,political correctness and ego mania and with trying to force their non American ideology unto American citizens.

Leave these myopic stupid I know what is good for you GOP Socialists alone.  They See nothing, They Know noting and who are you or me to educate them?  

As long as the GOP elite are alive and well the country is the losers their problem is that they have no control over Trump and that scares them. He does not need anyone's money and he says what what he believes and the voters love it.

These people, and I use the term loosely, are so full of crap, they need to remember to WIPE THEIR EARS, before they exit the men's room.

Hillary Clinton says she is “deluged” with requests to try another run for president and has still not completely ruled out joining the crowded field of 2020 Democrat candidates.

The former U.S. Secretary of State has repeatedly avoided categorically stepping out of the race for the White House – or directly into it, for that matter.

During media appearances in the UK last month, Clinton twice hinted she may make a belated push on the basis she claims so many people want to see her on the national stage once more.

Speaking on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show in London last Friday, Clinton confirmed she would “have to make up my mind really quickly” if she was going to join the race.

When pushed to respond if she would make a run for the White House for a third time, she prevaricated and avoided a direct reply, instead responding with: “As I say, never, never, never say never.”

She did concede she would need to make up her mind “really quickly” about whether or not to jump into the presidential race.

Clinton has already missed the filing deadline for the first primary in New Hampshire but there is no deadline for the next caucuses in Iowa in early February.

Responding to Norton, Clinton said she had been “deluged” over the last few weeks thinking about running again, but added that, “right now, I’m not, at all, planning that.”

Norton asked: “The rumour mill is flying that you could step back into the ring.”

Clinton replied: “I hear that. I have been deluged the last few weeks with thinking about doing that, but right now I’m not at all planning that.”

Last month Clinton told BBC Radio 5 Live she was under “enormous pressure” to consider a 2020 White House run.

When asked about her future in politics, Clinton said, “I feel a sense of responsibility partly because you know my name was on the ballot, I got more votes, but ended up losing to the current incumbent in the White House who I think is really undermining our democracy in very fundamental ways. And I want to retire him.”

When asked if she is absolutely ruling it out, Clinton said, “ I will certainly tell you. I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”

Clinton and her daughter Chelsea, are currently in London promoting their new co-authored book – The Book Of Gutsy Women: Favourite Stories Of Courage And Resilience.
