Ben Carson for President
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/10/2013 10:12:30 AM

Whether this weekend finds you blowing two feet of snow off the driveway or counting the hours until "Downton Abbey," make time to watch the video of Dr. Ben Carson speaking to the White House prayer breakfast this week. Seated in view to his right are Senator Jeff Sessions and President Obama. One doesn´t look happy. You know something´s coming when Dr. Carson says, "It´s not my intention to offend anyone. But it´s hard not to. The PC police are out in force everywhere."

Comments:
And he proceeded to lay into everything Obie holds near and dear. PC control of anything that sounds like dissent, penalizing the rich with unfair taxation, Obamacare (not by name), and on and on. All the while reminding "I don´t want to offend anyone." Obie appears to turn to stone.

A self-admitted difficult underachiever in school, Carson credits his mother for keeping at him and turning his life around. He is now the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins and probably the most renowned in his field.

Do read the article (better yet, view the video - you´ll be glad you did). His words on the flat tax, which start with a Biblical reference to tithing, are terrific. He is incredibly eloquent.

I´ve known and read about Dr. Carson for many years. He is a great and good man. Comparing him to Obama leaves Obama far, far behind. Dr. Carson´s story is the story they´d like you to believe is Obamas. It isn´t. Dr. Carson´s story is true and real and amazing. This is the man all of our young black people should be looking up to and admiring and aiming for. Not Jay-Z and Jamie Foxx and Chris Rock....yuk.

Get ready for the flying monkey assault on this fine man. He´s about to get Tebow-Palin-Borked. I can hear the wheels grinding on both coasts. Conservatism must NEVER be allowed to appear and sound obvious,pleasant,fashionable and never ever...attractive. This will not stand.

I´d vote for him. A few years back I watched him give a virtual tour of a downtown area. On his tour he pointed out everything that had been invented by an African-American. It was an incredible list. Obama would have said you didn´t invent that.

I heard Dr. Carson´s speech and watched him as he spoke with the President sitting right. There was an obvious devide of good and evil there...in the man speaking, and the other. Dr. Carson should be heard by everyone. He brought God into the mix with our country and founding fathers!! What novel approach!!

I, too, have known of Dr. Carson for many years. We have several copies of "Gifted Hands" in our school library and urge the students to read it. As a matter of fact I have it displayed right now for Black History Month. If you like Dr. Carson´s book try reading "We Beat the Streets" by Sharon Draper. Similar story about three young black men. Two become doctors and one becomes a dentist. Well, back to the subject at hand. I would vote for Dr. Carson in a heartbeat. Let´s see Dr. Carson or President Skeeter? No choice. Loved the look on Skeeter´s face. He was most assuredly thinking bad thoughts about Dr. Carson. Oh, and by the way, no one has the right to go through life believing they should never be offended. Affirmative action, self esteem and PC silliness is ruining this country.

The left are bringing out the scalpels to use against Dr. Carson now as they cannot let a conservative, black man speak this way as it is bad for their propaganda. Anyone they perceive as a threat, has to be taken down.

If the blacks in America are to be saved from modern liberalism we must have a conservative black president....and soon. While we all may be doomed by 2016 we surely cannot survive if Hillsry follows Barry. And certainly not if we can´t sweep away the Republican establishment.

I don´t know much about Carson but what I heard in his speech was most comforting.

My biggest disappointment in this speech was the cameraman. While it was fun to watch Barky squirm , I would have enjoyed watching the Wookie. Toward the end of this wonderful speech, Skeeter was getting ready to give Dr Carson the Ryan/Hillary salute upside the nose but thought better of it.

The tea party needs to put the good doctor Mr. Carson on the tour for President; with Alan West as Vice -President. I would bet that the country would love this. The democraps would be looking under every rock to find some way to destroy the man. We could also add Mr. Cain to be Treasury Secretary

Enjoyed the article. It´s pretty euphemistic to call the Communist thought police "the PC police"... but that´s about as frank and direct as anybody could dare to go without putting a drone target on his forehead.

A flat tax, like tithing, would be fair. But power, not fairness, is the real aim of confiscatory taxation systems.

If the Republicans had any smarts at all, they would write a bill, have Dr Carter edit it and agree to be the spokesperson. It must be no more than ten pages. It must repeal Obamacare and replace it with Carter´s approach. Call it "The Ben Carter Healthcare Reform Act".

Then, do the same for taxes.

I love Dr. Carson & his speech - what an answer to prayers! I prefer that he stay where he is & talk to young brainshed Americans as a conservative model for our Republic. I would like a Rubio/DeMint ticket cause both are strong Constitutional conservatives - Rubio can talk straight to young & old alike & DeMint even though quiet speaks truth very well that can be understood. Rubio would be strong with young students,Hispanic & the poor while DeMint will be strong with even some of the Rino elites as well as conservative Tea Party types. We are going to have candidates for 2014 & 2016 who can talk "plain language" & not a 3rd Party - if you go 3rd party you will lose!!!

Watching Ben Carson speak at the Prayer Breakfast and seeing President Obama’s reaction was a great way to spend a half-hour on Sunday morning. Carson exudes goodness and hope. His anecdotes were humorous and relevant. His reasons for supporting the adoption of a flat tax and establishing a pre-tax personal health savings account for every American were apolitical and very compelling. We are fortunate to have men like Mr. Carson among us.

Dr. Carson was on Hannity Friday night. During that segment - which was very good - Dr. Carson said he´d welcome the opportunity to debate anyone in the Obama adminstration about health care. Hannity will try to bring in economist Austin Goolsbee for an appearance with Dr. Carson next week. Stay tuned...

Evangelical Christians have known of and followed this great man. He speaks in many churches. He has been on Christian TV programs for years. He makes no bones about being a devoted Christian first and foremost. I read a little article where his Mother was interviewed. Wow. She refuses a lot of accolades - she says All Glory to God for what she was able to do as a mother. She credits trusting God and obeying Him for EVERYTHING. She said any mother in any manner of dire poverty CAN do what she did. No, Dr. Carson is right. She has no sympathy for the victim mentality especially as its always conferred on single mothers now.

On-the-Job-Trainee Barack Hussein Obama, now in his fifth year – HIS FIFTH YEAR of OJT, was taken to the woodshed at last Thursday morning’s Annual Prayer Breakfast. Dr. Ben Carson was the one who took him there. Dr. Carson is known internationally for confronting challenges, accepting them and ultimately accomplishing them. Mr. Obama is known internationally for avoiding challenges, ducking them and ultimately shirking them.

With an incompetent OJT for a leader, we Americans are now facing four more disastrous years of living in Never-Never Land. God help us!

The difference in having a mother who helped her son work to acheive what he was capable of through work and responsibility. While the other mother abdicated her own responsibility to her son. One is helping people and one is destroying a country.

After seeing Dr. Carson on Hannity, I have no doubt he could slice and dice the press with very few words. I think he´s a breath of fresh air compared to the Cool Daddy we now have messing up this great nation. If I were Dr. Carson, I would say to the press, come on down.

What an incredible man. He just draws you in when he speaks and has such a calming influence. Of course he´s the antithesis of what we now have in Washington, with the exception of a few. He´s on Laura Ingraham´s show right now and said that it´s obvious that there´s a groundswell from the people who want common sense and and for their politicians speak the truth. He was on Fox & Friends yesterday morning and he said when asked about running for president he said he was an Independent. The link is below. He will also be in Neil Cavuto´s show this afternoon.

People ARE hungering for common sense and for political leaders to speak the truth. RNC, are you listening?

Watching Obama´s rude deportment regarding Dr. Carson was certainly an eyeful. The contrast was clear and unmistakable. The good doctor represented America, the real America with graciousness, wit, and brevity. It can be done easily when these are the speaker´s core values and beliefs.

If Dr. Carson can disect Obamacare in two paragraphs, why can´t Boehner or McConnell? Why didn´t Romney? The same can be said for taxes and the toxic PC. The answer for the GOP is to go simple. Craft policy solutions based on the Constitution and our God given liberties, and communicate them with confidence. However, I have little hope that the GOP will do so because I´ve seen little evidence that these are their core values and beliefs.

Re #38, he was invited. This is not Obama´s party. Here is an excerpt about the National Prayer Breakfast - I didn´t know this before so happy to find and share:

The National Prayer Breakfast is hosted by members of the United States Congress and is organized on their behalf by The Fellowship Foundation, a conservative Christian organization more widely known as "The Family". Initially called the Presidential Prayer Breakfast, the name was changed in 1970 to the National Prayer Breakfast.

It is designed to be a forum for the political, social, and business elite to assemble and build relationships.


More here, including the fact that the breakfast itself is just one in a series of events over several days:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Prayer_Breakfast

It appears that the change in name from the "Presidential Prayer Breakfast" to the "National Prayer Breakfast" was done for a good reason - to prevent misunderstandings about who was responsible for it.

Jindo, South Korea -- A passenger describes women screaming in the darkness. A father learns his child is trapped. A son, fearing death, tells his mother he loves her.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

In a profile of Press Secretary Jay Carney appearing in the magazine Washingtonian Mom, this photo of the loving family appears:(Snip for photo)Cute, isn’t it? But, as savvy Twitter users noticed almost immediately, the picture is photoshopped, and not very well at that. The right side of the book case is a mirror image of the left, which poses a slight problem. A problem I like to call “disembodied finger of a child floating in air”! It’s a common photoshop mistake:

ORLAND, Calif. – A tractor-trailer already was on fire as it came across a median and crashed into a tour bus, killing 10 people, according to a couple whose car was sideswiped by the big rig. Joe and Bonnie Duran were driving a sedan northbound on the 5 Freeway on Thursday when they said a FedEx truck heading south careened toward them, struck their rental car and crashed into the oncoming bus carrying high school students from Southern California. (Snip)Bonnie Duran, who was driving, told KNBC-TV in Los Angeles that flames were coming from the lower rear of the truck cab.

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The slow and awkward decay of the powerful aura of Tiger Woods continued here Tuesday on a rain-soaked golfing cathedral that smelled like a damp towel. For the first time in 20 years, Woods will not be here for the Masters, a tournament he has won four times, his virtual ownership of Augusta National symbolizing his decades of dominance. Yet his fellow golfers do not sound relieved. They do not act as if reprieved. They spoke of this giant, haunting presence with neither fear nor reverence.(Snip)"He´s 38 now, he´s an old man," said Jason Day, the media

Another day, another terrifying computer security vulnerability. A hole in a widely used encryption technology has given hackers a way to infiltrate many of the world’s largest websites and download sensitive information from their servers without leaving a trace. The problem, dubbed Heartbleed, has existed for two years, but was recently discovered by researchers at Google, setting off a scramble to fix it. Trying to track new security vulnerabilities can be dizzying, but here’s why this one is worth paying attention to: It affects services you use. The problem is a shortcoming of OpenSSL, which is supposed to protect,

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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'

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

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
