WE KNEW THIS GUY WAS JUST ANOTHER POLITICAL CHAMELEON …
|| By FITSNEWS || Presidential hopeful Ben Carson kicked off his week addressing the 2015 S.C. Tea Party Coalition convention in Myrtle Beach, S.C. – a key early mile marker in the 2016 Republican presidential primary process.
In his speech to the overflow crowd of conservative activists, Carson discussed how tens of millions of voters stayed home on election day two years ago. Not only that, he sympathized with the plight of disaffected voters who “don’t see one iota of difference between the Democrats and the Republicans.”
Five days later, however, the neurosurgeon-turned-politician was busy raising money for those “Republicans” – and bragging about the GOP’s, um, mandate for change.
“In the 2014 elections, the American people spoke up and spoke clearly,” Carson wrote in a fundraising email circulated by the “Republican” National Committee “We chose Republicans to run our Congress, our states and our state houses.”
Really? Okay …
This website was not especially impressed with what we saw of Carson …
“A pre-scandal Bill Cosby parroting political talking points instead of Cliff Huxstable lines,” our founding editor said of the so-called “conservative” candidate.
Now that we see him raising money for the GOP with lines like “this is our time … this is our moment,” well … we see our assessment was spot on.
If South Carolina “Republicans” prefer an establishment candidate in the mold of John McCain, Mitt Romney or Jeb Bush … one who talks a good game but can’t deliver the goods (or a victory for their long-suffering legions) … then by all means they should give Carson’s candidacy a look. If, on the other hand, they wish to regain their lost relevance on the national stage via the nomination of a candidate who actually stands for something … they should look elsewhere.
Ben Carson in politics is like Michael Jordon in baseball.
or our own little trolls grandasshatliarcoward and flip commenting on politics.
That’s an insult to Carson…He achieved FAR more in his life already than Jordan ever will…
Yeah, you might want to hold off on that. FAR more than Jordan is a bunch of bullshit. You tin foils get all excited about a guy and then drop him in a heart beat. You are soiling yourself over Carson like you did Palin…you think the fact that if you (make believe you) support a non-white male it makes you enlightened and people won’t see you for the racist, chauvinist pig you are. When this fugazy polls 1% in Iowa (days before the caucuses you will proclaim him to be the next president), you will be back scrambling for crumbs like Cruz and Santorum. Then the inevitable will happen: you will take a Jeb or Mitt right up your dumbass. Book it. Next.
He scares you to DEATH doesn’t he???….LMAO…
Those Thugs and multiple voters in Ohio and Penn. will not come out for lily-white, privileged class Hillary…and there are lots of Obama-fatigued (starving-unemployed) black voters who may trust Carson because he has actually – real-world – achieved something in his life…unlike Obama..
If you saw him coming down the street, he would scare the hell out of a bitch like you, that’s for sure. Your ass would cross quickly, looking for a cop. Yes, you watch those fatigued voters…I am sure they will come out en masse and vote for Carson in Iowa and South Carolina. Dumbass. I know you know nothing about sports, but wanted to at least give you partial credit for at least understanding primary and national election voting. You failed. But yet, he is accomplished…he is just not going to come close to getting the nomination. And who the fuck cares about Hillary?
Both are better at either than you …. or me, for that matter.
“….This website was not especially impressed with what we saw of Carson…”
With an endorsement such as this Cockroach Carson will be lucky to a get towel boy job in a whorehouse
Remember,…this is the web site that endorsed T-Rav,….
Yeah…you and FITS’ track record is so glowing…LMAO….
Tell ’em, Good Buddy! These liberals only support nazi socialists who want to destroy America with their secret Muslim agend to make us all gays who get one abortion after another. They’ll never get their hands on our fetuses, GT. While I’m here…got any money left from that last check? I could get my grandkid to drive me by later, after your Mom goes to sleep, and we could watch some Hannity reruns and snap into some Slim Jims…maybe slap around some dumb@$$ liberals online?
Ben Carson, brilliant surgeon, shitty politician.
Ben Carson, brilliant surgeon, pragmatist.
Obama is marxist but fund raises and walks the walk of the democrats when needed.
Yeah, right. Anyone who lies, cheats and steals from “the rich” can’t be all bad? Oh Bummer?
Someone that holds to no guiding principle.
Barack Obama, Ignorant man…and Dumb@$$ anti-American…
Save that talk for when (if) your crash and burn “blog” ever returns (HAHAHAHA). The topic is Ben Carson…and his…wait a sec…haha…oh, this is a good one…his…ahhhahahahaha…Ben Carson’s presidential aspirations. There, said it. Man is that a hilarious topic. Anyway, stay on task, dipshit.
You impress me as one who is unhinged and getting drunk…LMAO…
You have NO ability to analyze political strategy or fodder. And you HATE me because I’m so good at it…and I go against EVERY myth you’ve been fed, and devoutly believe…
I make you feel deficient on several fronts.
Honestly, it would be much better for you to model me and learn something, than waste your time with vapid attacks…that make you look bad…
Seconded. The phrase “Don’t quite your day job” has never rang more true.
Perfect example of black on black crime.
Ben Carson in politics is like Grandasshatliar and flip commenting on political topics.
Expecting altruism out of someone with money?
How’s that been working out for you?
Not good me but it’s worked out well for our President, who’s wealth has risen 438% since running for President.
You mean his credit card won’t be rejected anymore? I guess becoming a pol has it’s perks.
Mmmmm … And he is not the only one getting very rich by “helping” the poor and minorities.
The liberals are just jealous because we have a token black conservative candidate. Just like Sarah Palin was our token female that scared that crap out liberals in 2008. So what if he is an unabashed plagiariser, much like the other FAKE FLIPS on here today. Keep trying to be me you socialist nazi Muslim communist feminist homo liberal dumb@$$e$!!!
The mullahs are gonna get you for that … They don’t like commies or homos.
(I still don’t get the pseudonym changes … Did you offend someone?)
Whoops…the liberals are beating Sarah and Ben. LOL.
I trust Ben Carson more than any of the leaders mentioned in the Primary!
Certainly do, too. Certainly more than any of Karl Rove’s pet rinos.
Minor leagues from day one. Keep an eye out for his very own 9-9-9 tax plan. Or as the Tea Party Tin Foils would say it, Nein, Nein, Nein.
Alan Keyes,Herman Cain,now Ben Carson.
He’s not a serious candidate .He won’t win any primaries or caucuses.He will be the window dressing for the Republicans until the serious business of a choosing a candidate begins, then all these White guys wearing these Carson shirts will fold them away(or contribute them to Goodwill) and start campaigning for their favorite SERIOUS candidate for the nomination,having shown what good guys they were in supporting a Minority candidate.
FITS…you were sucking off Gary “Global Warming” Johnson because Joel Sawyer, your former Sanford knee-pad mate got his consultant contract…
You are Felonious-Punk-T-Rav’s whore…and you told us Tom Ervin was winning as an Independent Republican, before he quit and endorsed Ultra-Democrat Vincent Sheheen…
STFU…Carson has more integrity in his toe nail than you have if your entire miserable life…
Hello Dominos, I want to order a pizza!
Wasn’t the turnout in 2014 lower than 2012?
That’s before the “progressive” Fascists managed to solidly rig the elections.
“Carson discussed how tens of millions of voters stayed home on election day two years ago.”
Pretty funny, coming from a GOPer speaking at a Republican* function.
*Yeah, yeah, I know, but the Republican (“Stifle Voting”) Party goes by several different names.
Liberals will bash the H#!! out of who scares them MOST…
From DRUDGE: WALKER WOWS CROWD IN IOWA…’GO BIG AND GO BOLD’…
Who wants to bet FITS will attack Walker as a RINO, moderate, or w/ some other slur the left is manufacturing to try to take Walker out…
He Gutted the Union, then beat the Crap out of them AGAIN and AGAIN..as the FITS-types guaranteed his demise…he kick their @$$#$ and took their names…LMAO…
Proving He is just as human as the rest of us. …. And also that He needs a better campaign manager.
Ben Carson….crazy, rascist, homophobe as irrelevant today as Sarah Palin
The tea partiers have been losing ground as more and more people view them as right-wing wackos. At their peak, 1 in 3 Republicans identified with the tea party. As of 2014, only 1 in 5 do. And, the results show it.
In the 2014 U.S. Senate primaries, the tea party ran candidates against six Republican incumbents: Mitch McConnell (Kentucky), Pat Roberts (Kansas), Thad Cochran (Mississippi), Lindsey Graham (South Carolina), Lamar Alexander (Tennessee) and John Cornin (Texas). The tea party lost all six primaries and the Republican incumbents won their general elections by very comfortable margins.
You go, wackos!
Funniest part about this article is when they accused him of being establishment then didn’t bother providing any evidence of it. If he had said “The sky is blue” he’d have been labeled establishment by this rag. Try having some integrity for a change FITS.
