Benzo Carson cannot take the heat of a Presidential Election. Something tells me he is not used to being questioned.
I bet Ben is not used to being questioned. Neurosurgeons seem to top the list as suffering from the "god complex."

Takes all kinds, I guess.
If this is true that Ben went after his mother with a hammer, this dude needs a psych work-up! That is not normal. Ben is either a pathological liar or a psychotic ticking time-bomb!

It is accurate. All he talks about now is how unfair the media is. It's a turn-off.

I hope his downfall helps the better candidates like Huckabee.

Where is the press's questioning of this from Obama's own book (Dreams From my Father), and what was Obama's answer?

...What was the explanation Obama gave for why he couldn't prove Obama Sr was his father in 1982 when Sr died?

Should have been on his birth certificate. Why wasn't it in 1982?

I'm not a fan of Carson, but he's right about the double standard, especially with respect to Obama's school records (apparently, the MNM were too busy carrying Obama's water to dredge up the curiosity needed to delve into that).

As a matter of fact, the media almost exclusively used Obama's own book for information, and took it as gospel. And don't even get me started on Obama's medical records, evidently a military secret. This pack-a-day smoker and admitted past drug user, with a family history of cancer, got away with releasing what amounted to a one-page "note from his doctor" while reporters pored over John McCain's medical records for seven hours looking for gawd knows what, all the while beeching that they weren't allowed to make copies.

Is there a double standard You betcha.

Nah, neurosurgeons rank 2nd place... right behind community organizers.

As I said if you think that way on Obama then you should be making sure ALL future candidates get scrutinized.

Once again, pointing out the double standard doesn't deny that.

Good try, no cigar.

Why should FERPA which applies to you, me, every Presidential candidate and everyone else period be any different for Obama than anyone else??

Then why didn't they ask why Obama couldn't prove Obama Sr was his father in 1982 when Obama Sr died. That's in his book.

Obama Sr listed as his father on his birth certificate in 2011, but there was no proof of such in 1982? How does that happen? Why didn't the press ask?
