Presidential Candidate Stuns by Effectively Dropping out of the Race While Romney Hints About Getting In

(For story about Romney, see below) By Jack Davis. Republican presidential Ben Carson responded on Wednesday to a dismal showing on Super Tuesday with an announcement that he will not attend Thursday’s Republican presidential debate in Detroit.

In the statement posted on his Facebook page, Carson said, “I do not see a political path forward” for his campaign. Carson said he will address his political future during a speech on Friday at CPAC in the Washington area.

“Even though I will not be in my hometown of Detroit on Thursday, I remain deeply committed to my home nation, America,” Carson said on Facebook, noting the Super Tuesday results.

“However, this grassroots movement on behalf of ‘We the People’ will continue. Along with millions of patriots who have supported my campaign for President, I remain committed to Saving America for Future Generations. We must not depart from our goals to restore what God and our Founders intended for this exceptional nation,” he posted.

“I appreciate the support, financial and otherwise, from all corners of America. Gratefully, my campaign decisions are not constrained by finances; rather by what is in the best interests of the American people,” he posted.

Carson’s supporters left messages of gratitude for his efforts. (Read more from “Presidential Candidate Stuns by Effectively Dropping out of the Race” HERE)


Mitt Romney to Deliver Speech on the Presidential Race

By Leigh Ann Caldwell. Mitt Romney, the Republican Party’s presidential nominee in 2012, will deliver an address Thursday on “the state of the 2016 presidential race.”

In a news release sent to press, no further details on what he will say were provided. But aides to the former Massachusetts governor say they expect him to speak out against Donald Trump, and praise Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich. Romney’s comments will be focused on “the state of the race,” likely echoing past criticism of Trump for failing to release his tax returns, and not decisively distancing himself from the Klu Klux Klan.

Romney has been inserting himself into presidential politics recently. He has taken to Twitter to challenge Trump to release his taxes, saying that the returns will contain “a bombshell.”

    Mitt again? Really?

      “Stupid is as stupid does”. Forest Gump.

  • CSN

    Romney supports amnesty, same sex unions, invented and applauded Obamacare, took Donald Trumps money and support in 2012, and backed so far away from attacking Obama on his record, that he lost an election he should have won. Has the record of being one of the most liberal Republican sitting Governors in history. So America, why would you give this RINO 30 seconds of your ear. It’s all about the New World Order. Agenda 21. Romney is part of this demolition derby. If The Republican Party wants to win they need to support the nominee.

      So Romney’s positions and Trump’s are about the same, huh?

        Read Trump’s positions. He is on the right side of everything he has published a position paper on. Guns, immigration, and now health care. Trump’s positions are not anti-American, and they are workable. A lot of what he is promising he can do under existing law, without any further action by Congress.
        Trump has said that his justice department would prosecute Hillary. He has said that he will bust the medical oligopoly (read his health care position paper). He is an enormous threat to business as usual, so it’s no wonder that Democrats and Republicans are against him.

        • MikefromNC

          Trump has been on EVERY side of every issue. he tells you what you want to hear and you’re buying it.
          Wouldn’t it be wise to consider what he has done and said in the past and not just what he’s saying while he wants you to vote for him?

          • Bob Trower

            You said it right MIKE. Why anyone would want someone as rude, crude, loud and obnoxious, I’ll never understand.

        • Bob Trower

          NELS, you are living proof that, you can fool all of the people part of the time and you can fool some of the people all of the time.
          Or Trump can lie faster than you can listen.

    • Bob Trower

      CSN, You are totally wrong on everything you have to say. Either you are lying or just very stupid and like to flap your lips.

  • JBenat3006

    Who care what Romney thinks? He is a shill for the establishment who got us in this mess in the first place!

    • MikefromNC

      Agreed. That’s why we need Cruz.

  • colo43

    Romney is another Rino flunkie- i’ve seen enough of him.

    What ?
    Trade in the fresh LOSER for a STALE loser ?
    15% is STILL 15%, schmucks.

  • mikecnj

    Do the ‘stabs really really think this lead dirigible’s getting off the ground ?
    Vote for Romney : He LOSES so well

    • MikefromNC

      I don’t think he’s announcing that he’s running.

      • mikecnj

        Sooo, what…Mittster’s going to lob shtballs from the sidelines ?
        Yeah … THAT sounds like a winning strategy.
        Who dreamt that one up … Rove ?

        • MikefromNC

          He probably had something to do with it. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what Romney has to say…

          • mikecnj

            Mmmm. Naah.

    • Daddy Kickass

      Yeah and after he LOSES, he runs and hides only to resurface and critize someone who is 100 times better than he ever would be.

  • AHP1081

    It appears the plan is to assure that trump wins. If Romney enters it will result in President trump. With Carson leaving, Cruz might pick-up more support and the establish can’t have that. .

    • Bob Trower

      A vote for Trump will mean two votes for Hillary. Trump can not win. Mygan Kelly sent him home crying. Hillary will eat his shorts and rip Trump to pieces.
      Any of the three remaining, Cruz, Rubio and Kachic would certainly be better people in the White House. Trump is a clown.

  • Sue

    I am saddened about Carson. He would have been an excellent president.

    • Nels

      Gentle Ben is a nice man. I’m not convinced that nice man would have made a good president right now. For a start, he is intimately familiar with the medical oligopoly that is bankrupting this country, and he never said a word against it. We need someone who will fight to destroy the status quo, not a nice guy who will go along with it.
      I’m sorry to see him leave the race, but I would have been sorrier to see him win it.

    • RWS

      Dr. Carson was the best. The only agreeable candidate remaining is Mr. Cruz, and as the foreign-born son of a foreign father, he’s not Constitutionally eligible (unless, of course, the Supreme Court decides otherwise; but we couldn’t expect such a decision from the august, non-partisan sages, could we?).

    • Bob Trower

      No one wants an honest man with integrity. Carson was a very good and honest man.

  • greg stoddard

    Romney and Rove poised to lay the final straw on the elephant’s back?

  • Daddy Kickass

    Titt again? Really? Titt couldn’t even beat a left, left, left wing muslim imposter fake who was worse than Jimmy Carter. Experience? Little Marco Polio has NO experience. He was still pooping yellow when Trump was building an empire. Trump has forgotten more than Polio will ever know. The same goes for Ted Screws. These mealy-mouthed blood sucking puppets just want to jump on the political bandwagon and be taken care of for life. PC Titt needs to fade away just like he did in the Oblowhard debates.

    Go home Mitt and quit embarrassing yourself!
