Liberal media gave Carson a helping hand by bashing him with nonsense: Ben Carson thanks 'biased media' for $3.5M haul - CNNPolitics.com

He is so right since they are extremely desperate not being able to find anything that amounts to anything on him. I am glad that liberal media has helped him raise these additional funds as they will help him prolong his bid for the GOP nominee.

Carson is a decent and intelligent man deserving of much more respect than what he is getting. I guess that is why they are focused on him. They exhausted their efforts in destroying Trump so moved on to Carson. I think this is all to draw attention from Clinton's predicament.

Are you new to politics? They're focusing on him because he's the frontrunner. And because he has made a lot of questionable/stupid/untrue/wildly embellished statements that should not be ignored.

He loves the limelight, but only when it is being shined on him for adoration. Not so much to actually have to account for his own words. His arrogance and hubris simply cannot tolerate that. Boo, hoo, hoo for him.

But I'm sure Carson is grateful for all the easy marks who continue to swell his bottom line. As a Democrat, I'm glad they're sending their money to someone who has no chance of ever getting to the White House instead of supporting a viable GOP candidate.

Carson is raking it in while he destroys his own reputation. I hope he enjoys this last little burst of fame, because where once he would have been remembered as a brilliant surgeon, now people will think of him the same way they do Sarah Palin--as an addle-brained idiot. Works for me.

So talking about how he use to stab people and lie about getting offered a scholarship to West Point is considered a good thing by some looney Americans that are loose with their money it seems.

I wonder if this big story is in some place exotic and the investigators who investigated Obama's birth certificate in Hawaii will be on it.

one problem with this story is it's based solely on ...... carson's word.

could carson have raised $3.5million in a week? most likely. he's been in they news a lot this week and i think his "joseph built the pyramids for grain storage" claim would actually resonate among a small segment of the population. that being said.... i'd want to see an FEC filing before i placed a bet on it to make sure carson isn't embellishing.

That is true, Carson has proven himself to be a full on liar, so it wouldn't surprise me that he would also lie about how much campaign money he has raised as well. I think Carson is gonna need to verify this information with something more than just his word.

since the OP is a trump supporter i'm interested to get their opinion on trump's claim that carson tells "many lies" and has a "pathological disease".

Heh, heh....We didn't hear a word from the dim-witted Democrats when Hillary claimed a huge influx a cash after the Benghazi hearings, now did we?
Benghazi hearing floods Clinton campaign coffers with cash - POLITICO
Newp!....'Cuz that was th' TROOF, huh?

And remember Joe Wilson? Sure you do! He was the Republican who shouted, "You Lie" to Obama. Well, his opponent announced the next day that he had received millions in donations as a result of Wilson's action.
Wilson funds reach $1 million after 'you lie' cry, aide says - CNN.com
Wilson is still in office. We haven't heard much from Rob Miller, who claimed to have raised all that money. I guess he just retired on it...

The attacks on Carson seem to be helping. No one believes the Democrats anymore.

Say, did you know that in a head to head race he beats Hillary by 5.2%?
