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.

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
