Ben Carson's campaign makes changes....


http://news.yahoo.com/republican-car...114303811.html

Looks like his campaign manager and twenty staffers are starting the new year someplace else.

No one has yet explained to me why this guy was ever considered a serious presidential candidate. Yes he is smart. Yes he is highly educated. Yes he was very accomplished in his field. Yes he seems like a nice guy. Yes he is a political outsider.

I know at least 50 people who fit that description. What makes this guy special?

I believe he was a commentator (on FOX?) and got noticed.

His views mean he would probably be at home among the Taliban leadership, and he remains a frontrunner for the coveted "Craziest GOP Candidate" trophy.

Personally, I think his staffers realized that with his troubled thug life as a youngster, he could one day snap while in the Oval office and launch into a scathing tirade replete with "Gosh Darnits!"

If you're black, that's as racist as it comes

If you're white, you apparently suffer from an overload of self loathing and white guilt.

Like Herman Cain, he was there to sell books and what not..never was a serious contender and his poll numbers were obviously well managed....

Yes, a marketing campaign.

Got to hand it to the guy for having the nads to jump through all the hoops to sell a book or whatever....
