Ben Carson Nails It: "I know why they're attacking me..."
Ben Carson is killing it this week. Seems like if you attack him just a little bit, he comes out swinging and will smack you upside the head (like when he fired back at reporters, which you can watch here). The press knows that since Carson's rise in the polls and popularity, his campaign has legs, and they're doing everything they can to knee cap him. Well Carson isn't standing for it, he's fighting back. Watch this interview as a reporter tried to corner him again. Carson didn't back down.
The reporter peppered him with with "well what about this thing that you said in your book, you got the dates wrong" and Carson did his best to answer in his polite demeanor without telling the reporter she was an idiot who needed ten more brain cells to qualify as a human.
When asked about his brother and Carson's mother and whether or not either would come forward to attest to what a crap weasel Carson was as a youngster, Carson had to remind the "reporter" of his mother's Alzheimers. Great fact-checking skills, sweetie.
Finally, the reporter says, hey, all presidential candidates get vetted. You're not the only one getting a rectal exam. And Carson laughed it off.
We know that's just not true, especially about "vetting" Obama in 2008. In fact, we wrote about it here, Carson vs. Obama: Comparing What we Actually Know, and you should read it. It's a blow by blow comparison of the two men, and a lot of the information about Obama was ignored by the press. They just didn't report it, and if they knew about anything damning or questionable, they swept it under their sheepskin rugs and continued on with their merry dance. Carson knows it, we know it, we all know the reporters and the media are an extension of the Democrat party.
Carson knows exactly why he's being targeted: "Because I"m a threat to the secular progressives." A big threat. A black neurosurgeon who credits his attitude turnaround on God and not government, who believes people can achieve on their own and that welfare is condescending? He needs to be terminated.
