Ben Carson is Still Running For President

This is what a true grifter says to keep his name in the news:
Carson, speaking during a half-hour sit-down with POLITICO’s “Off Message” podcast as he waited for the results of Saturday’s South Carolina primary (he finished sixth out of six), laid out his views on racism – and his belief that his experience as poor black kid in 1960s Detroit represents the real experience of his people in way that Barack Obama could never understand.
“He’s an ‘African’ American. He was, you know, raised white,” said the world-renowned neurosurgeon, whose single mother worked three jobs – and occasionally relied on government aid – to elevate Carson and his older brother from the grinding poverty of ghetto life.
“I mean, like most Americans, I was proud that we broke the color barrier when he was elected, but … he didn’t grow up like I grew up … Many of his formative years were spent in Indonesia. So, for him to, you know, claim that, you know, he identifies with the experience of black Americans, I think, is a bit of a stretch.”
At one point, the President was too "exotic" for the likes of Cokie Roberts and the Washington Beltway crowd. He was foreign, he'd lived in foreign countries, and he vacationed in Hawaii, which no Americans ever do. Now, the problem with the president is he was "raised white." Really? I thought that when he was raised in the Madrassa they made him too Muslim. Then, when Reverend what's-his-ass got his hands on him in Chicago, they made him too radically Black Panther-ish. For the last seven years, the man voted into office has faced every slur and every attempt to take away his legitimacy to lead this country with grace and dignity--the kind of grace and dignity Ben Carson couldn't display while falling asleep standing up in public.

Honestly, when do these people stop hating the president? Why haven't they impeached him already? Will we get to spend the next thirty years hearing this kind of garbage out of people who can't get anyone to believe in their own campaign for higher office?
