If They Were Offended By
Conservative Doctor´s Prayer
Breakfast Speech

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/10/2013 11:47:18 AM

A conservative doctor named Ben Carson made quite a splash this week when he appeared to lecture President Obama at the national prayer breakfast. On CNN´s State of the Union Sunday, host Candy Crowley asked her guests, "Do you find anything offensive with" what the doctor said or did (video follows with transcript and commentary): CANDY CROWLEY, HOST: This was in Dr. Ben Carson. He is a world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon out of Johns Hopkins. He was at the prayer breakfast and he was talking about the idea of, you know, weaving the Bible into some objections

What I found offensive was watching this fat whore helping out her corrupt and deceitful idol while pretending to be neutral...

In Liberalville it´s come to this: God shouldn´t be mentioned at a prayer breakfast.

We all know what´s at work here; anyone who might make Obama appear as the fool he is should not be present.

Nice people don´t say ikky things about your religion.

And Liberalism is a God and Obama is his prophet.

Bad people will always do bad things but in order to get good people to do bad things you need religion.

Oh my - Candy Crowley, fishing for mud to sling, again!

One of these days she is going to hook into a Great White and end up, figuratively speaking, becoming a big fat "horse douver", as Minnie Pearl would say.

It would be very entertaining to see her try those underhanded tactics on Newt Gingrich.

Candy, neither you, your guests or anyone else has the right to go through life and not be offended. Half of America is offended by President Skeeter and I don´t see you taking up for us. As a matter of fact we are offended by you but that´s okay. I can handle the offense without having to whine about you.

I was shocked I tell you, shocked! That the good doctor mentioned God at a Prayer Breakfast and in front of The One. He also gave his opinion on the state of the union. I am still in shock! Candy, you offeded me when you helped Obama during the debates. You offend me when you ask a stupid question like that. Why is a speech by a conservative Christian offensive when none of the speeches by our Communist leader are offensive? How can you defend a Communist!

Candy Crowley!!! - I blame the RNC for the 2012 campaign debate debacle that allowed this FAT MEDIOCRE BIMBO to have the ability help Obama lie to the American people. In 2016 the RNC must not participate in ANY of those Presidential Committee selected debates. Republicans are soooooo STUPID - they just refuse to understand the media in this nation.

So the libs didn´t think it was appropriate for Dr. Carson to speak as he did at the prayer breakfast - I do believe they all have loose screws rattling around in their heads. Do they think it´s appropriate when Obama berates and insults the supreme court justices, congress-people and anyone who disagrees with him? What a sad world this is becoming.

Dr. Ben Carson, thank you, thank you for speaking out.

Yes #3 and if I may say so, it´s way past time that EVERY National Prayer Breakfast have a Dr. Carson be the keynote speaker. I hate to say but I have personally seen this watered down a lot since the Clinton administration. This one is exactly how it should have been!!!

Dr. Carson´s speech was one of the most inspiring, uplifting, straightforward, fearless, principled and profound that I have ever seen. My admiration for him knows no bounds.

Q. What do Black Democrats call an accomplished and pioneering conservative Black pediatric neurosurgeon from Johns Hopkins Hospital?

A. "Sell-out," "Uncle Tom," "Race Traitor," "House Ni**er," "Not an Authentic Black Man," etc., etc., etc.

God bless and keep you, Dr. Carson. Please ignore all of the jeering and catcalls from those still chained up on the Democrat Plantation.

So glad Zuckerberg is giving this twit her walking papers.

So I guess we see the meme taking shape: Dr. Carson was offensive. The left cannot touch him any other way, he is too well-respected as a world-renowned physician and surgeon. Clearly Obama was offended by Dr. Carson’s speech, he didn’t applaud and showed tremendous disrespect.

In America the Beautiful, land of the free & home of the brave, it is Crowley´s leading question which IS IS IS offensive!!! Apparently she was projecting that huge chip on her liberal/statist/dem shoulder onto her panel and handful of TV viewers. Why is the lefty/lib media always so eager to be rude regarding spoken words, of, ´truth to power,´ especially when expressed by a universally respected, merited and undeniably accomplished, courageous and ethical Christian American?

Read the First Amendment, Candy(?!), and get a clue about individual freedoms in the U.S.A.. The lefty/lib/dem alphabet media simply can´t stage, script, censure and edit EVERYTHING spoken by America´s free people although, ...´they try to on TV!´ s/

Mother Theresa lectured Bill Clinton about abortion. Doctor Carson lectured Obama. In both cases only those who have ears to hear have heard. Stating the truth is sometimes seen as an offensive thing, and to the damned, it is.

Apparently it never bothers Crowley when BO misquotes, misuses, takes out of context, Biblical texts. Apparently it doesn´t bother her when boobs in the media and entertainment industry exalt BO to messiahship and infallibility.

what utter foolishness. yet she still sits there and pontificates!

BUT, read Jan Schakowsky´s response.

FTA: "Well, I think that there´s a political correctness that he was trying to use to appeal to a conservative audience. ... (Breakfast) was not really an appropriate place to make this kind of political speech and to invoke God as his support for THAT KIND OF point of view [my emphasis]. But I think most of all the kind of message that he was giving shows a real empathy gap of where the American peole are right now, and I think it´s reflective of where many of the Republicans and Tea Parties are right now that we need to have an economy that works for everyone."

Aside from the extremely poor grammar, she makes the obligatory attack on the usual boogeymen, Repubs and "Tea Parties." Nonsensical! This is Dem/Lefty tactic: no matter what the subject, attack the Repubs, and/or "Tea Parties", or Bush or ---you know the list.

Next time there´s a Prayer Breakfast, better not appeal to God, what ever you do!

Oh the horror! A Black man who doesn´t believe the liberal clap trap vomited forth from the lamestream media mentioning God at the National Prayer Breakfast.Dr Carson´sspeech was a breath of fresh air and wasn´t offensive in the least. What we have here and what I find truly offensive is that we have the fat cow that did such a bang up job moderating the townhall debate asking such a stupid quesion. You see to a thick headed liberal gas bag like "Diet" Candy Crawly anyone who makes fun of DA WUN must be destroyed. Whether it be a Republican presidential nominee or an intelligent conservative Black man. Candy dear go to the nearest buffet and stuff your pie hole. I´m sure some food will calm you down from being so offended.

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
