When Obama did what? Suspended his campaign for a book tour? Spent a whopping 69 percent of his fundraising totals for yet more fundraising? Had his business manager running his campaign?

What, exactly, did Obama "do" that is comparable?

Carson has no qualifications at all to be President. He bad mouthed Obamacare at a prayer breakfast and caught the eye of some conservatives who thought his celebrity and his point of view were notable. They got carried away and he got a swell-head and decided he should run for office. He really is nothing but a MD with a head full of crazy, distorted, and inaccurate right wing positions. Other than the MD, he is not much different or more qualified than some tea party bar patron.

Will you? yes, yes, yes?

Dude is crazy...
Yup. Personally, I would be relieved to learn that there is no evidence that I tried to stab a friend in the gut or hit my mother's head with a hammer.

Takes all kinds, I guess.

Perhaps even more telling, the official title of the man running his campaign, Armstrong Williams, is "business manager" as opposed to "campaign manager," suggesting that his run is less about being president and more of a for-profit venture. And the marks are standing in line to give him their money.
He saw how much Sara Palin made off of her side show and decided he could do the same.

No one has time to list what Obama has done. "Google" it.

Why do you care if Carson spent a couple of weeks promoting his book? Or that he uesd 69% of his fundraising totals for yet more fundraising? Isn't the real problem here that he could take time off and still hold his place in the polls and that his being able to raise funds is what really bothers you.

Seriously, how many negative posts have you made about Carson? Which candidate are you supporting? Obviously not Trump. Kind of narrows it down to the old Bern or Hillary and with them, where would I even start.

What is so offensive to you about Carson that you seem obsessed? I think when you answer that question, you won't be so stressed out over his candidacy.

Ben Carson didn't just start thinking about our country: http://www.amazon.com/Ben-Carson/e/B001IGOK4M

That doesn't mean he's a scammer, that means he's a guy without a political background who hired other people who don't know what they are doing (or are pitching their approach as "unconventional") to run his campaign.

I'm offended that a scam artist and a compulsive liar who has demonstrated absolutely no competence in anything outside of an operating room is sitting at the top of the polls of one of the two major parties. I would think anyone with a brain would be offended by that as well.

I think Hillary and Bernie Sanders are con artists, don't you?

Do you really believe what you read in these trashy journals? Do you get your news off the stands by the check-out counters in the convenience stores?

Exactly!

Listen to the skill with which he 'handles' the left-wing media clowns:

Trash him all you want but he is my 2nd choice based on his plan for illegal immigration. Somewhat softer than Trump's but it still kicks illegal butts!

You do realize that if Carson drops out that Trump will take the majority of the supporters. So, you might mull that over.

Constant trashing of the candidates goes no where. Most of us realize how bitter the illegals are since we want to pull them off the public assistance teat and deport the criminals which they ALL are. Or, maybe you are also bothered by someone that is religious. Of course, it isn't his race.

And, your candidate is or aren't you eligible to vote?
