The best and the brightest. Those are two of the qualities that we used to look for in a candidate for President. Jeez. The fact that he's gotten this far and has so many supporters is an embarrassment.
I don't pity any man who does hard work worth doing. I admire him. I pity the creature who does not work, at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being. - Theodore Roosevelt
Another politician. Wouldn't answer a simple question, asked three times. No thanks.
Not sold on him. He is a smart guy but that does not mean he would make a decisive or effective president.

I would think naming names when talking of dealing with terrorist, would not be wise. I don't believe Mr. Carson for one second isn't aware of who our allies are.
The problem I think now is the people running our country do way too much bragging on what they are going to do, or what they've done. Bad guys have televisions too.
A wise person doesn't flip their cards over for the world to see what they are holding nor do they reveal their plans.
What I heard him say, when pressed, was he did not want to leave any of our allies out.
Y'all know EXACTLY what would happen if he named a few, and left out, say, Australia. CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC and the other administration mouthpieces would have a field day. That would dominate the top of every newscast for a week, how stupid Carson is.
He was too smart to fall for it.

Well after seven years of progressive nonsense, I'm not sure we have any allies left to name.
Better response than Obama bragging he has ISIS contained the day before the Paris mass slaughter.

Hate to say it of Fox, but that really came off as a "Gotcha" question.
When a reporter presses hard for one specific name, of many possibilities, there is usually no possible "Right" answer.
I also would have stepped lightly in my reply.
