Used exact same answer: Many people are noting the fuzzy incoherence of one of Candidate Carson's "answers" in last night's debate.
He was asked about the wisdom of having special ops troops in Syria. His "statement" started like this:
"Well, putting the special ops people in there is better than not having them there because that's why they're called special ops. They're actually able to guide some of the other things that we're doing there. And what we have to recognize is that Putin is trying to really spread his influence throughout the Middle East. This is going to be his base. And we have to oppose him there and in an effective way. We also must recognize it's a very complex place...What we've been doing so far is very ineffective. But we can't give up ground right there. But we have to look at this on a much more global scale."
Some people are trying to say that the answer was fuzzy and vague.
Breaking! We've learned that Carson has cribbed from himself. We're told he used the same answer at Yale on that make-up psych exam!
The other youngster had all gone home, but he decided to go with that! We once used a similar answer on a Kant exam.
