Are you ready, Truthseekers, for the new crop of Neocons streaming into the political field? And such diverse choices, too. Which one will the GOP select to battle Hillary (or perhaps Bernie?) in 2016?
Assuming Hillary gets the nod, will they play the estrogen card and toss Carly Fiorina into the mix? If so, the former HP CEO needs to hone her IP skills. Somebody has already registered CarlyFiorina.com and from the looks of the contents, it’s definitely not managed by a member of her fan club:
Carly Fiorina failed to register this domain.
So I’m using it to tell you how many people she laid off at Hewlett-Packard.
It was this many:
🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 [repeats 30K times]
That’s 30,000 people she laid off. People with families. And what does she say she would have done differently?
“I would have done them all faster.”
Ouchie. Kind of reminiscent of www.tedcruz.com (go check it out, we’ll wait here . . . . . )
Uhm, do these candidates not have any media managers? Or are they all DNC moles?
Also entering the pageant is wannabe Mike Huckabee, trolling for the Extreme Rapture Right vote. Huckabee recently urged folks to abandon the military until
he a Republican is in office, because no TRUE American soldier should serve under that Godless Muslim Commie Obama: “I’d wait of couple years until we have a new commander in chief who will once again believe one nation under God and believe that people of faith should be a vital part of the process of not only governing this country, but defending this country.”
Yup, there’s a patriot for ‘ya. Deterring military service. And wasn’t there something in the US Constitution about not having a religious test for public service?
And it goes without saying that Huckabee is opposed to marriage equality, even saying that allowing gays to marry would lead to the criminalization of Christianity: “Christian convictions are under attack as never before. Not just in our lifetime, but ever before in the history of this great republic. We are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity.”
And if Huckles seems too extreme for the mainstream GOP, perhaps they will decide to “black it up” and nab the minority vote with Florida’s Ben Carson. Carson is a neurosurgeon, so this would be a departure from the pea-sized intellect of former twin GOP dimwits Dubya and Caribou Barbie. But Carson has never held any political office and as the Broward Palm Beach News (his hometown paper) describes, he really REALLY doesn’t like Obama:
That time Ben Carson compared Obamacare to slavery: Yup. At 2013 Values Voter Summer, he told a crowd that the president’s key piece of legacy legislation “the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery.” He tied that speech off with a Lenin quote, ’cause, you know, communism and all.
That time Ben Carson compared gay marriage to bestiality: Yes he did. This time, the good doctor made his statements on the Sean Hannity Show. “My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society, and no group — be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality — it doesn’t matter what they are — they don’t get to change the definition.” He later apologized.
That time Ben Carson compared American today to Nazi Germany: This guy is big on historical comparisons. From a 2014 interview with Breitbart news. “I mean, [our society is] very much like Nazi Germany. And I know you’re not supposed to say ‘Nazi Germany,’ but I don’t care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe.”
That time Ben Carson called President Obama a “psychopath”: From a profile in GQ.
That time Ben Carson said homosexuality is a choice and cited prison rape as an example: Jesus. Keep in mind this is a doctor who is saying this. From a March 2015 CNN interview, Carson was asked if he believed homosexuality was a choice. “Absolutely,” he replied. “Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they’re gay. So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question.”
Wow. Tell us how you really feel, Carson.
