Replace he with she and add private email server(s). You mean like wipe clean? I don't know what that is. I can't handle two electronic email devices at once.

Which nominee is out of touch with reality?

Carson should have expected something like this - Fiorina certainly did.
No one here put words in his mouth, do you really think that he has some kind of right to be exempt from questioning about things that he claimed that are either false, or at the very least questionable. Don't you remember the crap that was brought up about Obama? The birther crap continued for years after he took office. If you think this is some kind of leftist plot, then what exactly would you call the accusations made against a sitting president?

I'm not a supporter of Dr Carson for Prez for exactly the same reasons I didn't support Obama. It's the Leftists that are suddenly RABID about a Black Conservative that Dares to run for President. Carson doesn't have anymore qualifications than Obama did and we know a HECK of a lot more about Carson and his background than we will EVER know about Obama. Carson seems like a very nice man, but that's not enough ..... although some integrity, love of country and a lifetime of good works would be a very pleasant "change".

President of the United States is not well suited for On The Job Training.
It's also not a good Job for a person who circumvented the Law, the rules laid down by her boss and signed Documents certifying compliance about National Security ...... while setting up a Private, Un-Secured Server to circumvent Federal FOIA Laws.

This Nation deserves better.

I think Carson believes it's okay for him to abuse the press because that is what he is doing. I wonder how long it will be before some of them refuse to cover him anymore?

I think everyone can agree on one thing: We'd never sen that side of him before. I sure don't want to see it again. Made me nervous, uncomfortable, like he's really "off" in some way. He lost control of his own press conference. How can he control the country? How would he manage to get through the day at the White House?

I don't know if he was that bad. I'm pretty sure from reads that we had worse crazies in the oval office. But, does anyone here watch the show Survivor and the contestant Philip Sheppard who first played in the Redemption Island season? He had some 'crazy' meltdowns and he has somewhat of a resemblances to Carson. He just reminded me of Philip.

Wiki definition: Hypocrisy is the claim or pretense of holding beliefs, standards, behaviors, or virtues that one does not truly hold.

I mean, man, if the left's criticism of Carson trivial mistakes, after the untold countless flagrant transgressions the Democrats have made, isn't a classic textbook example of hypocrisy, I don't know what is.

We had to sit here and endure for more than eight years of the left and the media shrugging off or just outright ignoring one major issue after another with various Democrats, and now I'm supposed to get all worked up over one minor issue over Carson? Really?
Did you bother to do any research before you posted that big long list? If you had, you would have noticed that the press DID cover a lot of it.

Just the last bullet point regarding Obama and the daily intelligence briefings: https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q...ce+briefing%22

Turns out that he reads the briefings instead of attending all the time. You might recall the GWB was dyslexic and didn't like to read -- so he attended all of them.

Where did that list even come from if there was no media stories about any of it?

Default Ben Carson Melts Down - Again

If he can't handle fielding questions from reporters without a tantrum, he'll have serious problems when the Oval Office door closes and he has to perform. Putin would suck him up and spit out the shell like he was chewing a sunflower seed.

Seems the press has a double standard. When Obama ran for president he did not receive tough questions nor reporters digging into his questionable past. Instead they gave him standing ovations. For the black conservative republican candidate, they make up lies about him and question him about the lies they made up.

Carson never had what it takes to be President. It takes more than a few words at a prayer breakfast. Politics is a dirty, vicious business. If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen. It's over for Carson and he would be wise to quit while his reputation is still somewhat intact. Speculation now turns to who will benefit from Carson's demise.
