    Ben Carson: A good man without solid political principles

    Ben Carson is a good man. He is, in fact, an American success story. Carson has never held political office. He is relatively new to the political world.

    Which GOP Senators running for president show up to work?

    Barack Obama has become known as the “part-time president” due to his excessive golfing. In fact, since taking office, Obama has played well over 200 rounds of golf.
