Mr. Trump said he'd send those aliens back to wherever.

You equate the towers being hit with an alien attack? Sorry, but I don't think it's QUITE that remote.

It really did happen, remember?

Yeah but I'm not jumping in the race for president and 911 is history, you can't change the past. being obtuse suits you.

I read the article,and while I think I may have a better grasp of some'Cuban Issues' than Ben Carson seems to I can't say that I am bothered by this particular issue.Some of it seems a little nit-picky like knowing whether Raoul Castro is 83 or 84.I generally agreed with much of what he said in the article.

Perhaps you could publish a list of questions 'any candidate should know'.Most candidates have an answer for everything.....regardless of whether they have any knowledge of a given topic or not,and if they have no answer they just change the subject and answer a question that wasn't asked.

I'm not supporting Ben Carson,hes near the bottom of my list for a number of reasons .....his grasp of current Cuban/American foreign policy isn't among them however.

Could you just picture Carson in any emergency scenario: "Russia just fired a nuclear missile at Alaska. What do you want us to do?" "North Korea says you have 5 minutes to give them an answer before they start sending bombs our way." "A 50 foot tsunami just hit southern Florida. What do you want us to do?"

Of all the candidates running now, Graham, Christie, Paul, Bush, Kasich, Clinton and Sanders, all have a good grasp on the issues. Clinton has the most foreign policy experience but I'm sure Graham and Sanders (and maybe Bush and Kasich) have a pretty good knowledge.

It would be nice if he knew Something, so far he is not showing anything that makes him stand out from the rest.

His "I dont know, I need to read up on it shtick" is getting old. He may very well be an accomplished brain surgeon, but he is not ready to be the president of the U.S. Hopefully, voters are not so fed up with status quo, that they put him in office.
