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

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
