Big Ben Strikes

This evening in Florida, Ben Carson held a press conference and addressed attacks that have been launched against him by the Democratic Party press. This excerpt, courtesy of CNN, is good. Carson points out that reporters had no interest in stories about Barack Obama that vastly eclipsed the nuances of whether Carson could have attended West Point. In particular, he notes that Obama’s college and law school records are sealed. Why is that, he asks. And why have you reporters never investigated to find out why Obama’s records had to be sealed?

It’s a great question. It is also interesting to hear the reporters yelling back at Carson, unabashedly taking the role of advocates for their political party. At one point a reporter explains that he doesn’t investigate Obama because “he’s already president.” In other words: too late, suckers!
