Well, Hoosierman and I are going to have to disagree about Ben Carson. While I am not a diehard idol worshiper of any person--either seeking office or a non-divinity-- and so my position that Carson is a good candidate for the presidency is, like gender for Leftists, shall we say unpunningly--fluid.Unlike Trump, Carson has integrity and an inspiring life story; a close examination of the incidents of the past weekend reveals that the Politico hit piece fell apart.
It's true that Carson is a political novice and thus has fallen into a number of traps. He's got to learn the art of speaking without dropping chum in the water that cause the sharks to jump.
I don't support his positions supporting the TPPP or Puerto Rico statehood; what I do believe is that Carson has the intelligence, the integrity and the patriotism to do what is right for America. Do I think when he gets into office he would follow through with some of these Obaman disasters? Who knows, but I certainly have more confidence in Carson than Trump or Hillary.
Now that he tongue lashed the media, he needs, to quote the Clintonites, move on, at least to avoid the appearance of whining.
My problem is that I am so sick and tired of the media deciding who gets to run on the Republican side and distorting the lives of any conservatives or Republicans that I can't even tolerate the news anymore.
What infuriates me the most is seeing this privileged, rich, often white reporters looking down their noses at a guy who was a poor BLACK kid from Detroit who went on to achieve great successes in a much touted career, one that the media is trying to destroy so that their rich white privileged next in line candidate can win.
It's infuriating. Infuriating.
Let's just take CBS's John Dickerson, for example, who gamed Carson this last weekend and whose biography on Wikipedia says this. Dickerson is:
..native of Washington, D.C., Dickerson is a son of C. Wyatt Dickerson and Nancy Dickerson Whitehead. He has three sisters and one brother and grew up in Mclean, Virgina at Merrywood, a sprawling 49 acre estate with a 36-room Georgian-style mansion, high on a leafy bluff overlooking the Potomac River.This is where Dickerson grew up; let's just say the estate was a mirror image of Detroit, eh?
He graduated from Sidwell Friends School in 1987, and holds a degree in English with distinction from the University of Virginia. On Her Trail, Dickerson's book about his relationship with his late mother Nancy Dickerson Whitehead, a pioneering television newswoman, was published by Simon and Schuster in 2006.
The elite media are so disconnected from us and reality that they can never, ever understand the motivations and lives of old middle class bloggers like this one.
That said, the winnowing process that is happening for the Republicans will take care of this, even turning up a vice presidential candidate or, better still, a doctor who could run HHS in the next administration as we watch Obamacare fall apart.
It just really frosts me that these wealthy privileged mostly white elitists of the MSM have the gall to look down on the likes of Cruz, Rubio and Carson.
I was really satisfied to see Carson blow up at the media.
I hope it happens more often, though I don't want to see anyone get stabbed. Heh.
