The scrutiny Carsons resume is getting (specifically West Point) is normal in today's job market, never mind that he's running for President.

Maybe when he started telling these things he exaggerated or got confused or whatever. The "problem" is Google, no one's stories aren't fact checked by citizens on Google daily.

It's happened in the professional world regularly now. Used to be hard to find out if someone lied on a resume.

Also if you can't take this scrutiny, you shouldn't be president.
Trump isn't a part of the "right." He's a liberal and a useful tool for the left.

Guess you never heard of Richard Scaife.

Why do you need Carson's college records. He is a DOCTOR. Just ask the medical board that issued and renewed his license to practice medicine if he is qualified. You would think the media would spend more time interviewing Dr Carson's peers and patients. Why waste time looking for some hoodrats from his childhood.

I know its not like the media went and interviewed Obama's Kindergarten or 3rd Grade teachers. Oops, but they did.

Here are is an article partially based on Obama's 3rd grade teacher from 2007.

As a child, Obama crossed a cultural divide in Indonesia - LA Times

Obama's Indonesian teachers all said he was a leader at a young age. Fermina Katarina Sinaga, Obama's third-grade teacher, didn't have to quiet her pupils before class because Obama did it for her.

"When the kids lined up before entering the class, he would step forward and lead the whole class," said Sinaga, 57. "He inspected the line, and he was acting like a teacher. I could see his sense of leadership back then."

Sinaga asked her class to write an essay titled "My dream: What I want to be in the future." Obama "wrote 'I want to be a president,' " she said. During a later writing assignment on family, he wrote, "My father is my idol."

Heck, they went even further back than that with Obama and checked out his birth announcement in the local paper in Hawaii, calling it a plant because it didn't tell the story they invented for Obama. Ben Carson is really stupid for making that comment about him getting more vetting that Obama. I can't believe even hardcore conservatives believe that.

Why do you need Obamas college records. He is a LAWYER. Just ask the state bar that issued and renewed his license to practice law if he is qualified.

Every time a poll shows either Trump or Carson at the top, the crap starts by the Democrats and I swear many are Bernie fans wanting their pot legal and free college not realizing that a lot of employers drug test but then I guess the Dems will put them on the public dole.

Also, Carson gets it from both sides as does Trump. GOP wants a loser like Bush because they seem to have some odd interest in throwing yet a 3rd election in a row.

I think media is showing how pathetic they are at this point with Carson since they have come up with some really idiotic things, which Carson has explained to everyone that would have cared in the first place and his supporters are probably more so seeing the crap that is being thrown at him. Although Carson is my 2nd choice, Trump being the first, I have seen nothing that was brought up to make any difference and I actually have the intelligence to not just read one media group or one line headlines of an article.

At least Carson doesn't belong in prison like Hillary and if anyone died on Carson's watch, it wasn't because he just didn't give a darn one way or the other and he actually cared about saving anyone on his watch. And, Obama, thank God that reign of terror is nearly over.

They won't leave Carson alone. I think these attacks are just going to hurt the Democratic party and not help Bush or Rubio. There is no miracle revelation coming that will help them.

So, Carson has a point? The Mystery of Barack Obama Continues | Obama Social Security Numbers I googled for this and it is the link to look at. Much more than how he paid for his college.
I think there's some truth to that. Both parties want someone that they can control, that will toe the line and spout the party mantra...while simultaneously doing everything they can for their major donors, while destroying their competitors. Big and HC and are major donors to both parties; with the Dems, add in the liberal media. Obama has certainly given them everything they could dream of. The RNC isn't significantly different. A non-party hack, especially a true conservative that would get off the RNC (let alone DNC) plantation, has both parties terrified. Hence the constant attacks on Carson and Trump. As loony as he is, the same applies to Sanders, not a party hack. BOTH parties want someone that won't rock the boat, maintain the status quo and enrichen their donors.
