Do you think he closed his eyes that much when he was operating? Why does he do that?

Since he's a doctor, I suspect journalists who fancy themselves as investigative reporters,are scurrying around looking for malpractice things they can gleefully report.

I notice there is not a dearth of threads started by the right about Clinton. Seems they have no problem giving their opinion about the other side's candidates. Will you go into all of those threads and tell them their opinion of a Democratic candidate is "mute?" No, I didn't think so...
Like Hillary saying her biggest enemies are the Republicans and the NRA?

Clinton is a "known" commodity. Both Hillary and Bill. Carson was not attacked like this UNTIL a poll showed that he was the only GOP candidate that could beat the pants suit off of Hillary.

Actually it should be "mute" as in "mute it" because no one is listening anyway. Everyone knows who opposes Carson and also approves of the "witch" hunt. We know who the "witch" is and she isn't in the GOP lineup.

What cracks me up the most are the Bernie supporters? And, they call the illegals "dreamers".

So, Carson can beat Clinton in the general election IF she isn't in the "big house" and Bernie would be a slam dunk. Trump could beat them. Heck, nearly every GOP candidate could beat them. Thus, the constant and unending nonsense about the GOP candidates. After a point, no one is listening. We have reached that point.

You have the right to be concerned about Carson and I have the right to be terrified that the Dems will get in. We know what the Clintons are capable of and it isn't based on opinions.

Really, the stupid one liners being quoted about Carson in many of the threads here as truth show a reading comprehension of age 5. The inability to read links and actually sort truth from opinion is mind boggling.

I think they have already done that. There was a story or two that were found not to be what was said. One about a sponge being left in someone's head but as it turns out, it is used in cushioning the brain after surgery and was standard procedure. The other was a parent that was upset because when he did the brain surgery to remove something, it left the child, because of the amount that had to be removed, very disabled. I can't imagine it was very comfortable for the families to be contacted by the press about personal matters like that. It wouldn't be for me. As we know, the liberal media has no conscience.

With his eyes, I can't help but wonder if he is just sensitive to the light. I don't think a lot of people realize how bright the lights are.

It's not the black part that we are rejecting, it's the conservative part. And that is true no matter what color or gender the candidate is.
So are Obamabots finally admitting that those who disagree with Obama do so for political or philosophical reasons rather than because "they don't like a black man in the White House?" Will they also cease the "GOP is racist" charade with a top candidate being blacker than Obama?

If not, it should be hilarious hearing the "reasons" why...

With such a crowded Republican field and an uninteresting Democratic contest, the crossover vote into the Republican primary will be huge. That is going to make a difference, and it may be enough to determine who is in and who is out.

And the kind of non Republican voters who are crossover candidates are bound to look askance at Carson's Josephian pyramid scheme to get elected. Frankly, I don't think he stands a grain of a chance. Or as they are saying in England, "Doctor Who?"

Puns fully intended.

And it's moot, BTW.

Will it be huge or YUUUGE?

Since the poster wants me muted - I wonder what that poster thought of his foreign policy expertise.

We should deploy special ops because . . 'it's better they be there than not". Let's see, China is invading Syria and 'special ops can carry out special operations and that is why they are called special ops'

Really, my 20 year old could give a better understanding of foreign policy.



I have problem that he has absolutely no clue what he's talking about when he is asked about foreign affairs or a whole lot of other things.

You are probably one that accused everyone of voting for Obama because of his skin color because that seems to be all you see.
I found this article yesterday in Foreign Policy magazine about Carson's foreign policy advisor. Who Is the Man Behind Ben Carson’s Foreign Policy? | Foreign Policy

It should give you pause before even thinking about voting for Carson.

Scary to think a general "believes it is important to use the military to convert the American public and foreign nations to Christianity."

Obviously, based on Carson's foreign policy and some of his other pronouncements, he's a whack job who can easily be influenced by other crazies.

He doesn't have a firm grasp on a lot of issues. He thinks there ought to be more discussion. He isn't able to make a decision when faced with two competing sides of an issue (like minimum wage, for example).

OldHag - Thank you for the information on Dr. Carson.

For the rest of you I cannot think of anything more politically and economically disastrous for the country than the election of ANY of the Republican candidates to the Presidency.

Cruz gets most of Carson's cut. Cruz will take the lead when Carson falls. It looks to be shaping up as Rubio vs Cruz. The battle is going to be fought over immigration, an issue which the general populace does not consider to be among the most important, but one that is of extreme importance to many Republican primary voters. The real battle for the Republican party is about to begin!
