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.

Eli

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.

ALERT ALERT

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
