Not getting dirty: Ben Carson Slams’s Trump’s ‘Mud Pit,’ Doesn’t Respond to Faith Challenge

ben carsonAlthough Ben Carson may think taking the high road is the better move than getting down and dirty. This is politics. It’s not a game for the nice guy all the time. Sometimes you have to get a little muddy to show one can give back as good as they get.

Ben Carson, newly minted front-runner for the Iowa Republican presidential caucus, is pushing back against criticism from billionaire Donald Trump that he is “super low energy.” According to NewsMax.

“I don’t get into the mud pit,” Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, said in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “I do have a tendency to be relaxed. I wasn’t always like that. There was a time when I was, you know, very volatile.”

Carson, 64, said that as a teenager he would go after people “with rocks, and bricks, and baseball bats, and hammers.” At age 14, growing up poor in Detroit, he tried to stab a classmate with a camping knife . “Fortunately, you know, my life has been changed. And I’m a very different person now,” said Carson.

Trump, 69, a real estate mogul and reality TV star, has spent several months leading a large pack of Republican hopefuls in opinion polls. Two recent surveys, the Quinnipiac Poll and the Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll, showed Trump falling behind Carson in Iowa, where the first ballots of the 2016 presidential race will be cast on Feb. 1. A CBS tracking poll on Sunday showed Trump and Carson tied in Iowa, each holding 27 percent support.
