While GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson may catch flak for being relatively soft-spoken compared with some of his rivals on both sides, what he just said about Hillary Clinton packs an unmistakeable punch.
As Breitbart reports:
Dr. Ben Carson would “relish” the opportunity to take on Hillary Clinton—whom he dubbed the “poster child” of dishonesty—in a general election.
On Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, Carson, who is now the frontrunner in Iowa, told host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon that a contest versus Clinton would be the “most clear-cut election in history.”
Currently, Carson leads Clinton in general election match-ups across a range of polls.He said Hillary Clinton’s campaign would be about the the “usual tax and spend, promise them everything, give them nothing policies.” Carson also said a potential general election battle with Clinton would also allow him to “demonstrate to people the whole concept of dishonesty.”
“She’s the poster child for that,” Carson said.
Spot on, Dr. Carson.
He added that he would also relish a general election matchup versus Clinton because “it would give me an opportunity to really explain to people what the impact is of the incredible amount of debt that has been piled on during the Obama administration,” especially the “deleterious impact” the country’s debt “has on savings and increasing one’s wealth.”
While liberal, state-run media struts around a newly energized, freshly confident Hillary Clinton in the wake of last week’s Benghazi hearing, Clinton’s “performance” last week doesn’t change the fact that a majority of Americans across various polls don’t believe she is trustworthy. Carson, on the other hand, has demonstrated an integrity that sets him apart from politics-as-usual candidates — and perhaps that is why he continues to rise in the polls.
And could it be even that his anti-Trump demeanor is also part of his appeal to groups, such as women, where Trump falls short and Carson’s lead becomes dramatic?
Imagine a race where the content of the candidates words becomes more important than the decibel level. Imagine.
