Why don't YOU try again? Because you are completely mistaken in asserting that this was just stretching.

Ben Carson's map seems a little bit off | www.ajc.com

Again, I don't believe this reflects in any way on Dr Carson, but the truth is the truth.

Wow, what an over the top reaction.

You take yourself entirely too seriously.

We're having a little fun at a politician's expense. What could be more American than that.

FYI, as soon as the Carson campaign realized the map graphics dude was, er, having a bad day, they pulled the map and put a correct map up in its place.

The news media also said the same sort of thing, "Map stuff happens," and moved on.

Try again. Lol.
So when the Carson campaign wants a US map they draw it from scratch? What a disaster.

Actually, it looked more like someone took the map apart digitally, for whatever reason, and when they reassembled the states, they didn't put them in proper configuration.

You'd think he could at least hire people who are smarter than he is. Makes you wonder what his cabinet would look like.

And really sad that Obama is in that mixture.

This map is good for ****s and giggles and cheap digs but otherwise is of no consequence.
Well, Obama doesn't know much either. His lack of knowledge of history, and even U.S. History is constantly on display.

Though Selma happened after he was born, he said in a speech that it was what brought his mother and father together.
