Ben Carson inched closer to the presidency if you believe media polls: Ben Carson Edging Close to Front-Runner Trump in Latest Iowa Poll Aug 29, 2015 7:11 PM EDT by John McCormick Ben Carson Edging Close to Front-Runner Trump in Latest Iowa Poll Admittedly, Carson is not the liar the Chicago rat is, but as near as I can tell he is running as a spiritual leader. That is not something I want in a president. I suspect that his stated policies will be predicated on his personal moral standards. Parenthetically, selling himself as the nation’s spiritual leader was the sewer rat’s gig right from the beginning. One would think that the country had enough of that garbage for a while —— at least until the next generation of fools come along. From what little I know about Carson I am not sure which one best fits the image he portrays: 1. My moral standards should be enforced on everybody. 2. I’m the savior you’ve been waiting for. Ordinarily the following applies to dirt bags: The people always have some champion whom they set over them and nurse into greatness. . . . This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector. Plato Carson is unique in that he can pass for a conservative protector were it not for the moral claptrap. NOTE: When Bush the Younger awarded Carson the Medal of Freedom, it was okay to cite Carson’s “High moral standards and dedication to helping others." Nobody is going to give Carson a medal when he turns out to be another spiritual leader like the Chicago sewer rat. Forget medals and morals and compare Carson’s known abilities to those of Trump. Trump wins hands down. In plain English does the country want the standards of a neurosurgeon? or the standards of a builder with executive ability coming out the wazoo? Let me remind you that media scum gave the country Taqiyya the Liar whose only ability was community organizing with tax dollars.
