There is no end to the reasons Republican presidential contender Ben Carson should be laughed and sneered at when his name is mentioned.
I guess my favorite from the many delights that Carson has said over time to prove he is not in any way a credible person for the job of president is his wacko statement about the upcoming election. He warned in an interview in 2014 that if we “continue down this pathway that we are going down,” referring to “this pathway where everything is framed in a political sense and our representatives are not working for the people, they’re working for their party,” then the anarchy could lead to the 2016 election being called off.
Yeah. I will keep my readers posted on the postponement of the election.
Then there was that homosexuality is a choice statement citing people who “go into prison straight – and when they come out, they’re gay” as proof.
Last night there were plenty of reasons to be dismayed at the state of politics in the nation while watching the Republican debate. But I admit among the less than ready for prime time players there also were one or two that rose to the occasion. While I disagree with almost everything–minus the marijuana question–that Carly Fiorina said, she was able to compete and at times dominate the stage.
News today is that she will star in the cold open of “Saturday Night Live,” giving her a “Live from New York” moment. And I predict in mere days she will remove Carson from second place in the polls. Carly will make a strong second, in fact.
Carson can go back to where he came from.
