Chris Wallace doesn’t believe that his colleague Dr. Ben Carson could win in 2016. Right wing hero Ben Carson has suggested that he is considering a presidential bid and even has a potential campaign chairman picked out.


[su_center_ad]On KFTK’s Allman in the Morning show, Wallace was asked whether he believes Carson would actually run. Wallace said he wasn’t sure. “Do I think he has a serious chance to be president?” Wallace said. “I don’t. No.”

Mediaiite reports, “He added that he wasn’t disparaging Carson, who has never held elective office, but that “certain skills” are needed to effectively govern the country.”

“We think, ‘well, you don’t really need a professional politician to run the country,’” Wallace said. “To me, it would be like saying we don’t need a professional manager to run General Motors or something.”

Some Republicans would love to see Carson give 2016 a try and they’re probably the same ones that disparaged Obama for having a lack of experience, and yet, the President has 20-years-worth on his resume.

      That’s a euphemism for the “Solid South”

    He might run, so can sell more books.

      That’s the only reason that most of them run. They’d poop their pants if they actually won.

    Shorter GOP: “You don’t give your house keys to the family pet!!

    Ben Carson will be the Herman Cain of the 2016 Republican Presidential field: successful black man from the private sector who makes a complete fool of himself demonstrating he has no knowledge of how the government works.

      You know what’s sad? While Carson and Cain never have held government jobs, Palin, Cruz, Rubio, Rand Paul, Romney and Bachmann, have held government jobs, in some cases still holding government jobs, yet they have no knowledge of how government works.

      But, he has an MBA!

    The one thing that is left out is the fact that the g.o.p base will not nominate Ben Carson

  7. trees August 28th, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    I’m voting for him if he does.

    • jasperjava August 28th, 2014 at 7:55 pm

      ROFL! Yah, right!

    Every so often he becomes lucid.

    Nutty birther Ben Carson is unable to produce a birth certificate the 95% white Tea Klan would buy.

    A man who is waiting for “god” to tell him what to do ?
    Given our current situation in the middle east I cant believe chris Wallace actually had to think about the answer OR have ben on his show as if he had a snowball chance at president.

    The only group of people that supports Ben Carson is the group of “angry old white men”, who will support him right up until they walk into the voting booth.

    You mean FakeNews actually got one right?
