    It would seem that Trump isn't the only one using the Republican primaries to get publicity.

    Grifter indeed. Campaign records show he has raised $14 million while spending $11 million on fund raising. A ****ing scam to separate idiots from their money while enriching campaign consultants.

    Read the article fully, and not just pluck low-hanging fruit from the intro, to get the real gist of the author. The piece lays the ground for relevance with edgy assumptions, but the author turns it inside out as the writing progresses.

    I can tell you struggled with that response. Didn’t you mom tell you that if you have nothing to say then its best not to say anything?

    Do you support Ben Carson enriching political operatives with money ordinary Americans are donating to him?

    Big deal. He's taking two weeks off from making "overt" political appearances, whatever that means. It's his campaign to run as he pleases. He has been getting hammered for statements he has made, so it might be good for him to back off a little and reset his campaign if that is at all possible.

    Agreed, who cares. I'm sure characters like Trump and Huckabee will have plenty of outrageous comments to fill the media void in his absence.

    Poor fake Christian Huckabee. He's said worse **** than Trump or Carson and can't even get any media coverage other than retweets on Twitter.

    The affable Dr. Carson is the great black existential threat that the Democrats and left wing media must destroy, by whatever means at its disposal.

    All what is said negatively of Dr. Carson is innuendo and distortions ran as fact. it was only a question of when the attacks were going to commence.

    Now that it has, it’s only a matter of time when the racial cartoons arise, piggy-backing onto the class act that is repeating the phrase, F*** Ben Carson.

    Agreed. Doesn't seem to make much sense to take your foot off the throttle if your goal is winning the nomination, but it's his call.

    After all McCain suspended his presidential campaign at one point, and we know how well that worked out for him.

    The sum total of the left wing media’s attacks on Carson, and as carried forth in the blogger and Twitter killing fields, is based upon this technique:

    Carson: “What a gorgeous day it is today.” Media: “Carson excoriates yesterday and has a dim view of tomorrow.”

    More like:
    Carson: "What a beautiful day, just like the beautiful days in Nazi Germany."
    Media: "Serious candidate Carson sunny and optimistic, and not at all a Godwinning crank."

    Everything's a Leftist Conspiracy when you want it to be.

    It's more like: News Does What News Does, Anger Arises Due To It Being Aimed At Someone A Particular Group Of People Like.

    When all you have is a tri-corn hat, everything looks like a leftist conspiracy.
