Dr. Ben Carson has discovered over $500 billion (that's with a 'B') in errors and accounting mistakes during his audit of the Obama administration’s Housing and Urban Development budget.

One of Dr. Carson’s first orders after being confirmed as the Secretary of HUD was a thorough audit of the agency, which has been accused of fraud and over-budgeted projects throughout the entire Obama administration.

What did the auditors find? Over $520 billion in budgetary mistakes and clerical errors.

The question is: Who took it and can we retrieve it?

If I found an error of that magnitude, I would have to ask at least three other people to verify that they too could see the inequity. All this would be done before I said word one about the situation.
That is a big catch!

Lemme guess. The half-trillion $$$ is a newly discovered surplus.

No? Knock me over with a feather.

Do NOT write off this loss. Prosecute it as a crime.

Assuming the bookkeeping is that sloppy, one can’t help but wonder what friends of Obama were getting money tossed their way, for who knows what purposes.

Clerical errors my butt. Weren’t we all wondering where Obama got the money for his special projects when we knew it didn’t come from Congress? We also have to know all that money missing from the Pentagon found a home with many similar special projects as well paying off cronies for work well done.

Hmmm...more “stimulus” Obama will probably say. “Good for the economy”, he will add.

Notice how Obama’s stupid term “stimulus” has never seen the light of day since his initial usage to justify wasting almost a trillion dollars, not unlike the decrepit “Bush Doctrine” to justify Iraq, or his dad’s phony “thousand points of light” to justify what? - his cluelessness I guess - all of which meant and amounted to absolutely nothing.

The phoniness of the Left.

Well is anyone besides Hannity covering this in the media? Perhaps people should call the local outlets of the networks, to inquire as to the matter. Also have local AP news customers, request more AP coverage. If this gets done by enough local outlets, it may induce serious coverage--which otherwise might not be forthcoming.

Just some tactical thoughts for getting around the usual attitude of the mainstream media.
