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

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

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

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.

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.

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/

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.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Is Harry Reid unpopular enough to become an election issue for races nationally? A GOP incumbent in North Carolina is trying to find out. Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

Some advice for Democratic candidates from consultants: Don´t use the word "recovery" in your speeches. Associated Press: Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion

The "X-Men" director, who is accused of sexually abusing a 17-year-old boy, is no longer set to appear at the May 2 conference along with the vice president, a source tells THR. Beleaguered X-Men director Bryan Singer has dropped out of an upcoming “Creativity Conference” in Washington, a source tells THR. The filmmaker, who is being sued by a 31-year-old man who alleges Singer sexually abused him in the late 1990s, was scheduled to appear along with Vice President Joe Biden at the conference, which is being co-sponsored by the Motion Picture Association of America, Microsoft and ABC News as

Amy Kremer, one of the original Tea Party activists who participated in the February 20, 2009 call that launched the movement and played a key role as scheduler of the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party rallies, resigned on Friday as chairman of Tea Party Express, a position which she has held since the summer of 2009. Tea Party Express, a political action committee known for its national bus tours, was one of the first national organizations to successfully raise money through appeals to Tea Party supporters and activists. The group played a significant role in helping Tea Party

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

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

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

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
