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.
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:

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

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.
