    @TOO: "How does Bill Clinton get away with so much immorality? The same type of stuff that the left tried to destroy Newt with?"

    Bill Clinton had an affair. It did not impede his ability to do his job in any way. It was personal, between him and his wife and his mistress.

    Newt Gingrich had an affair. It did not impede his ability to do his job in any way, it was between him and his second wife and his mistress.

    Newt Gingrich was busy *having* an affair when he tried to discredit and impeach Bill Clinton for having an affair.

    Further, Clinton had (apparently) had affairs in the past, and his marriage survived. Gingrich cheated on his first wife with his future second wife. He cheated on his second wife with his future third wife.

    Most Americans didn't actually care about the details of either the Clinton or Gingrich infidelities and marriages - but they did object to the blatant and cynical hypocrisy of Gingrich.

    I have read all of Ben Carson's books, they were uplifting and interesting. I did not read anything that would disqualify him to be our next President. His most recent book "A More Perfect Nation" tells us more about who he is today.

    Of course he knows that there will be those critical of his policies and doubt his abilities. Let's be fair none of these candidates have any experience at being the President of this country. Most of them have no experience at leadership. I believe Dr Caron has that record because his profession made that necessary, to do what he did so well. A doctor always has the team ready to do the job necessary to heal and save lives. We need a leader that will put in place a strong team to help save this country.

    Lou,

    Where did he brag? Give me one example of when he spoke of these incidents as if he were proud of it. Just one.

    His point was showing how God has turned his life into what it is and how he struggled and became the man he is today.

    How does Bill Clinton get away with so much immorality? The same type of stuff that the left tried to destroy Newt with?
    How does Hillary lie to the American people about emails (which was proven in the last testimony before congress) and get away with it?
    How does Maxine Waters call black people who are conservative Oreos (black on the outside but white on the inside) and get away with it?

    Are these the best the Democrats can come up with?

    How does Ben Carson brag about stabbing another man and get away with it?
    How does Donald Trump file bankruptcy four times and get away with it?
    How does Carly Fiorina get paid to leave a company?

    And these people are the best the republican party can come up with?

    Hey Ben.

    Welcome to the big leagues. If you want to play with the big boys, you got to learn to take a punch. And that victim thing you are doing now that the press is scrutinizing and parsing your every (ghost) written word and speech. Well, it works for a while, but it won't get you nominated or elected.

    Enjoy the status you have now. If your claims don't withstand the harsh glare of the sun, then you can always be an aggrieved commentator on FOX. It made Huckabee rich, and will make you richer.
