I was elated to hear the news that CNN has re-evaluated the criteria for the upcoming Republican debate on September 16, 2015. Originally it was said they would use poll numbers from July which would eliminate Carly Fiorina from the debate. Now it appears she will be included and I for one will be listening. I think she’ll give the good old boys a run for their money and they may not be able to catch her. She’s a smart cookie and she knows how to make her words melt in your mouth. Not only that, Carly Fiorina as well as Ben Carson are both being ignored by the media. They just can’t get enough of Donald Trump and Jeb Bush. The Republican establishment appears to be all over another Bush presidency. Ouch.
Personally I would love to see a debate between Carly and Hillary. Talk about integrity against panic-stricken. If Hillary couldn’t come up with an appropriate answer she would probably say, “what difference does it really make?”
Recent numbers show Ben Carson running second to Donald Trump and followed closely by Carly Fiorina and Ted Cruz. This is exciting news for anti-politician fans. It’s interesting that the numbers continue to show that people today want answers; they want action. They’re tired of the same old politics.
The most interesting comparison is that going head to head with just Trump and Carson, the results are exhilarating. Ben Carson is 55% over 36% for Donald Trump.
Perhaps America is looking for honesty and integrity above all else. Some people would claim Carson doesn’t have enough administrative experience. I believe Abraham Lincoln was a woodsman and farmer. If POTUS is smart he surrounds himself with good, honest people because he knows he can’t be an expert in every field. He just needs to be a diplomat to get things done. Much of Reagan’s success was that he surrounded himself with the right people.
Of course all of this is subjective and the numbers will change from week to week depending who has the loosest lips. What is really intriguing about this is that Ben Carson has not said one derogatory word about the other candidates. Ben Carson is definitely the most intelligent candidate in the bunch. Ben Carson is a refreshing candidate. What do you think of a Ben Carson / Carly Fiorina ticket?
