In a triple-bylined story, Chuck Todd and two other staffers at NBC wrote:
On this FEC filing day, we already know Ben Carson will have raised the most money on the GOP side. He's now running neck-and-neck with Donald Trump nationally, per a recent Fox News poll. And it all comes after a week that could have sunk a more traditional candidate (his Holocaust/guns remarks, not appearing to know the difference between the debt limit and the debt/deficit). What's more, Carson rarely holds campaign events, and ABC even reports that he's taking two weeks off to sell his book. Trying to explain the Ben Carson phenomenon is one of the best political stories out there.I am curious as to what problem Chuck Todd has with the observation that Nazis disarmed Jewish people before rounding them up?
Likewise, I wonder if Todd knows the difference between debt and deficit.
But I wonder why Todd thinks the majority of Americans give a shift about those issues.
As for Carson taking time off for a book tour, I seem to recall a fellow named Barack Obama selling plenty of books in 2007. Come to think of it, did anyone ask him if a Muslim could be president.
