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.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
