I would agree. Republicans all over the country were embarrassed for him.

But the evangelical lambs and lemmings continue to lap up every parable that comes out of his mouth. Next, they will all have pictures of themselves with Jesus in a terrycloth robe. Very cas.

I think you misspoke, or misunderstood. He wasn't demanding Obama release records, he was asking the media why they were not interested in Obama to the same extent that they are interested in details of his (Carson's) distant past.

Yet the media dug all the way back to Obamas birth announcement, and 3rd grade teacher.

Anyhow, that's exactly what I did and do you want to know what came up? An ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION! I kid you not! And because it appears you don't understand how this whole search engine thing works, I'm going to copy and paste it just for you:

"[The Obamas] paid for their educations via scholarships and student loans, in the process (like many people) incurring debts which were not fully paid off until many years later. In the Obamas' case, it was largely the revenue derived from Barack's pair of best-selling books that finally allowed them to retire their student loan debts."

Where Did Obama's Money Come From? : snopes.com

Pretty nifty, huh?
If you believe everything you read on the net that's your problem. Also, there is no way in the world Snopes knows all what is true and what isn't.

Why is the media digging into Carson when they didn't Obama? Because Carson has the wrong letter after his name. If it was Ben Carson (D) he'd be getting a pass, just like Hillary Clinton (D), but because he's (R) they'll dig up whatever they can find or manufacture. Him lying doesn't help, but again if he was (D) most of the media would simply ignore the lies.
