Ben Carson "dirty tricks" by Cruz - told caucus voters Carson had quit the race

(CNN)Ben Carson charged on Tuesday that Ted Cruz needs to fire campaign staffers for falsely telling Iowa caucusgoers to support the Texas senator because the retired neurosurgeon was planning on quitting the race.

"If Ted Cruz doesn't know about this, then he clearly needs to very quickly get rid of some people in his organization," Carson said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "And if he does know about it, isn't this the exact kind of thing that the American people are tired of? Why would we want to continue with that kind of shenanigan?"

2. I think Cruz will fight dirty.

Really dirty. He'll make KKKarl Rove look like a boy scout.

6. That's what I was thinking too.

He's proven, his whole adult life, that he is the slimiest of them all. Truly a sewerdweller when it comes to the rules of engagement on any topic. According to him, he's a "chosen one" so he can do no wrong in his and his daddy's mind.

7. He already proved that with his last-minute "Voting Violation" Iowa flyer.

Look for him to attempt similar shit in New Hampshire.

4. Reminds me of the apocryphal story of the backwoods politician who warned voters not to trust . . .

his opponent because it was well known that his brother was a practicing homo sapien and his sister a thespian in New York.

Carson, if you're campaign is built on reliance that the ill-informed and stupid will follow you, be not surprised when another piper plays a catchier tune and draws them away.

9. The next GOP debate will find just as many going after Marco as Cruz

I think Trump will hit Cruz while Cruz, Bush, & Christie will focus their fire on Marco.
