Ben Carson's Resume is Fair Game -- But What of Democrats' Resumes?

The Politico headline was blunt: "Ben Carson Admits Fabricating West Point Scholarship." Except Carson made no such admission. He acknowledged never applying to West Point. But as a top ROTC student in Detroit, there's little question that had he wanted to go to West Point, he could've gotten in.

Technically, West Point offers appointments, and the full tuition is paid for by taxpayers. But even West Point's own website uses the word "scholarship." In any case, Carson went to Yale, and, as such, could likely have gone to any school in the country.

Within hours, Politico changed its headline to: "Exclusive: Carson Claimed West Point 'Scholarship' But Never Applied."

I'm waiting for the media to do a story on how the former secretary of State was caught in an outright lie, several times.
Of course, they'd have to work really hard trying to get out her back pocket.
Or maybe a story on the numerous "coincidences" regarding her or her husband's efforts on behalf of those who donated a few million to their "foundation" and the sudden, "coincidental" granting of favorable deals, laws, and regulations, which like the Gates's "foundation" and the Walton's "foundation", is little more than a tax evading criminal scam.
Bribery has many forms, but it's STILL bribery.
Keep cheering.
