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.

The two front runners will do as good a job as any other candidate for President.

I think Carson is another traitor-in-waiting..............

If you like obama you will love 'Shifty' Carson.

So the GOP are still trying to undermine America again. Do they think their rhetoric is actually going to sway Americans decision for President. The more they try to block the less relevant they are. Kathy Dawson is now Katy Dopeman and is  now irrelevant.

You wish. Trump has already come out on this: he wants America secure. He gets you don'l let in terrorists. He gets you don't fund the enemy.

 

Here GOP eat this:

IN FROM WND:

Donald Trump is proving himself an iron man in the political endurance race for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.

Three new polls show the billionaire extending a healthy lead over retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson.

  • A five-day rolling poll by Reuters showed Trump winning 36 percent of Republican primary voters to Carson’s 14.6 percent.
  • A University of Massachusetts survey tallied the two at 31 percent and 22 percent respectively.
  • A Morning Consult poll released Tuesday gave found the real-estate mogul pulling in 38 percent to Carson’s 19 percent.

Trump’s reputation for not pulling rhetorical punches is benefiting him with voters who are concerned about the Islamic State group.

On Monday, Trump blasted President Obama’s ISIS strategy during an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” saying: “We have a president who just doesn’t get it. He’s weak and ineffective.

The repuican rino crats are dead! No one wants another bush and sure not a mccain or romney loosers that they are they can't even wipe their own nasty asses they are so weak.

I guess in their minds every person that gets into the oval office is already proficient in all areas of governing. Maybe that is why they have so many advisers and specialists to aid them.

I guess after Paris they forgot to check the polls.  Trump has now climbed away from Carson.

Nope  because what ever then need to learn they will and will be much better  at it.

THE RINOS ARE DEMOCRATS IN WAITING. WHEN I HEAR A RINO SAY HE CAN REACH ACROSS THE AISLE AND GET ALONG WITH THE OTHER PARTY. THAT MEANS HE SUCKS.

WHEN I REACH ACROSS THE AISLE I WANT TO SHAKE THE HAND OF ANOTHER TEA PARTY CANDIDATE. WHO SAYS COMMUNISTS ALL GONE.

THEN SMACKS HIS PALMS LIKE A BLACK JACK DEALER.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
