But nine friends, classmates and neighbors who grew up with Carson told CNN they have no memory of the anger or violence the candidate has described.
That person is unrecognizable to those whom CNN interviewed, who knew him during those formative years.
All of the people interviewed expressed surprise about the incidents Carson has described. No one challenged the stories directly. Some of those interviewed expressed skepticism, but noted that they could not know what had happened behind closed doors.
So let me get this straight, CNNPolitics … You can’t find “evidence” that Ben Carson struggled with anger issues as a young man, so that makes him an unworthy candidate somehow? In other words, “He was better and nicer than he said, so that’s bad!” You’re really trying to write a hit piece based on that?!
Seriously? Are you people really that dense or is it just that you think I am? Do you even hear yourselves anymore?
Sure wish you’d looked as hard for evidence about Obama when he was campaigning.
