The Great Tweet-straction

So a Cruz campaign supporter, based on a “breaking story” on CNN that said nothing more than Carson’s itinerary, suggested Carson supporters vote for Cruz, in a tweet, has become the latest in the  soap opera coverage of the 2016 presidential primary.

CNN’s “breaking story” was that Carson was going home, then to Washington, instead of going right to New Hampshire. They said Carson was “taking a break.” This was characterized as “unusual news.” Wolf Blitzer followed with “very unusual news.”

Excuse me, but if you’re going to claim that you lost a position or two in the Iowa caucuses because of a tweet that happened 15 minutes before the voting begins, then you’re not saying very much about the smarts of your supporters. Supporters who would not bother to verify the assumption that Carson ended his campaign, which the tweet never claimed he did.

CNN’s senior political reporter, Chris Moody, merely said this. It didn’t say Carson quit. But the way CNN’s on-air talent put it, video above, it was full of speculation that it was over. Yet, they never said it was over.

 

Doesn’t say much about Trump either who, because of that tweet, says he wants a do-over.

Gee, can we get on with the issues of why we need to toss the Democrats out of The White House already, and stop this BS soap opera?

Republicans are losing valuable time, and focus, on this. All of which benefits Democrats and the Obama administration. Why? Because no one is talking about what a mess Obama created and how much more of a mess either Democrat candidate has in store for the country. Instead, they are feeding the media soap opera that is covering back and forth tweets about nonsense.
