Ben Carson Says The One Thing He Would Never Do Is Lie

Sorry Ben, we know of a few lies already. Not buying it.

Today's Fox 'News' The Cost Of Freedom, hosted by Neil Cavuto, featured Dr. Ben Carson, the once almost-front runner of the 2016 GOP Clown Car. Ol' Ben seems to be losing steam going into Monday's Iowa Caucuses and Cavuto picked Carson's brain to see what the ex-surgeon has planned for the critical next few days.

Carson's campaign has had some issues, mainly a staff shake up at the end of 2015. Facing falling poll numbers, Cavuto asks him if he plans to change his approach to a more aggressive and acerbic style, which in Stabby Ben's case would mean he'd have to speak at audible levels with his eyes fully opened.

CAVUTO: There are some things you will do, there are some things you would not do. What will you NEVER do?

CARSON: Well, I'll never compromise my principles. I won't lie. I'd much rather lose than lie. What good does it do for a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?

If a Democratic candidate was found guilty of lying about several matters, those would be addressed first and foremost, in every interview. However, we know of Stabby Ben's honesty problem. Some of those include lies about: West Point Admissions, Mannatech, plagiarism and an alleged 'violent' past. Cavuto addressed none of these revelations.

Had I been charged with interviewing Carson, I'd certainly ask him about his decision to recite the Preamble of the Constitution as his closing debate statement. He actually misquoted a few things in the process. But honestly, that's the least of his troubles at this point. Unless something dramatic occurs, Ben isn't too long for this GOP Presidential contest. The Talking Yam and Tailgunner Ted the Canadian are sucking all the oxygen out for the rest of the field.
