Special ‘Hannity’ Preview: Dr. Ben
Carson Reveals What Was the Most
Surprising Response to His Criticism
of President Obama at National
Prayer Breakfast

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/13/2013 9:32:32 PM

This Friday, Dr. Ben Carson will sit down with Sean Hannity and a distinguished audience in a special one-hour show that revolves around one idea and one quest: saving America. Tonight, the Insider caught up with Dr. Carson before the taping of the special to get a preview of the show, as well as ask him some of our own burning questions about his inspirational career, his plans for the future, and of course, his reaction to the outpouring of response after his comments at last week’s National Prayer Breakfast. (Snip) Insider: Over the past week,

Comments:
I know what I will be doing Friday night. I can´t wait to see him for an entire hour. It will sure be intersting.

I think this is terrific. One thing I just can´t get over, however, is how many stupid lefties had said so many horrible things about Dr. Carson on the Mediaite comments section a couple days ago. How could anyone, even if they disagree with his views, say nasty things about this man?? I don´t get it.

#1, I think it is because they think that they successfully destroyed Sarah Palin through ridicule, that now they can do it to any conservative that shows up. Particularly if that person is black and avowedly Christian. Such people are traitors to their race and should not be allowed to express themselves publicly, just as Sarah Palin was a traitor to her sex. Also consider the tenor of the comments. The juvenile quality suggests that the commentators read like they are 15 years old.

Our problem is not low information voters, our problem is high sin voters. These folks have no fear of God because our nation is filled with compromising preachers. As Martin Luther King preached, let judgement run down like waters and righteousness as a mighty stream. Our nation has departed so far from God that Dr. Carson´s words are like rain in a desert land.

Isn´t it sad that we have so few proud Americans willing to stand up and speak up ?

If Carson doesn´t want to be prez, how about senator ? If Zippy was smart and we know he isn´t, he would put Carson in his Cabinet.

I added the tv movie made about him, Gifted Hands:The Ben Carson Story, starring Cuba Gooding Jr to my netflix list and will move it up. I´ve read a brief summary of his life and it should be very interesting. Every interview I´ve heard with him is so encouraging. Such a contrast to Obama, night and day.

Reply 1 - don´t forget that the democrat party pays a few people to be a web presence of hundreds if not thousands, directed specifically to respond negatively and mock those they don´t like. They join something like Lucianne or respond to newspaper articles, using different user names and email addresses with directions to cause havoc.

The days of one person, one opinion are gone. How many different email addresses do you have? and you´re legit.

We streamed "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story" last night and watched it with renewed perspective. Cuba Gooding did a fine job portraying Dr. Carson.

This man IS presidential material because he is sane. He is rational, Godly, reasonable, committed to certain core conservative values and fearless - his strength comes from God, which he is the first to admit.

Dr. Carson said in an interview that "if God grabs him by the collar", viz running for POTUS, he would do it. Well, God does use other human beings to do His work so let´s begin the draft process for Dr. Carson for POTUS.

The Left will try tearing him apart as they always do, but you can be certain that a black conservative, successful Republican would be the Left´s worst nightmare. They tried it with Clarence Thomas, with Michel Faulkins, J.C.Watts, and they´ll try it again.

But Carson is different; he´s got a long track record of helping people, saving babies and doing good. Watching the Left go after him would be worth the price of the ticket because they would lose.

Dr Carson appears to be a fine, principled man, an exceptional speaker, with great insight and the courage of his convictions. Truly a motivational person.

Having said all that, it disturbs me to read psters on this forum suggesting that he run for senator, and even president.
Have we stooped down to become low information voters?
People, beyond Dr. Carson´s exceptional qualities as described above, what makes anyone think that he has the qualifications, ability, inclination, and even competence to hold public office--especially that of President?
Public office should not be a celebrity poularity contest. After we have been pounding on Obama´s inexperience and incompetence to be POTUS for the last 6 years, are we to now do the same with Dr. Carson?
I greatly admire the man, but not as POTUS.

Hubby can´t always take Hannity´s pontifications, but I´ll definitely DVR this one for later, and maybe he´ll watch with me.

Watching the professional Left´s hysterics and histrionics over Dr. Carson reminds me of the scene in the Wizard of Oz, where Dorothy pours a bucket of water over the Wicked Witch´s who´s on fire.... intending to do a good thing, but actually doing a REALLY good thing quite inadvertently. We need more Dorothys drowning out the Left´s destructive fires.

I would welcome an honest conservative candidate for POTUS who had not chosen to make a career out of politics, and was successful in his chosen line of work.

I think that was what the old white guys who set up this government over 250 years ago tried to do.

People who spend their entire life in politics (including community organizing) don´t have a clue about the real world because they have never lived in it.

Reagan was a successful actor before he entered politics, and that worked out well.

Like most others here, I will be watching Hannity on Friday with anticipation. Dr. Carson "warms the cockles of my heart" when he speaks, and I feel hopeful again.

#3 is so right - "our problem is high sin voters". It seems that both Protestant and Catholic churches have leaders who are compromising God´s will by deviating from His Commandments. Personally, I think that the big Ten (I don´t mean basketball teams) are perfectly clear. I believe one of those big Ten tells us not to lie; so if we applaud a leader who lies like a rug, what does that say about us as a nation?

The left attacks him because he represents the direct opposite of Fauxbama. He´s a person of real accomplishments. Every day he bears heavy responsibilities and his successes and failures are obvious. There is transparency. There is no delegation of responsibility, no tolerance of lies. What you see is what you get. No obfuscation and pure common sense. And he´s right: we already have too many lawyers.

Dr. Carson should NOT be hidden away in the Senate or Congress.

He is doing what is best by speaking out - all over the public media - educating the lofos.

He should take it to the girls on The View, take it to Letterman, Colbert and especially Stewart, take it to inner-city schools and ivy colleges.

Agree with #3. We have a country who has fallen so far away from God, I think it is ludicrous to keep asking for His blessings. When I pray I ask Him for mercy.
I also ask Him to send us good and decent individuals to govern us. I think my prayers have been answered with Dr. Carson and few others. I´ll keep praying for more.
All I can say is Judgement Day will certainly be interesting. I´ll bet that many of our current crop of ´leaders´ will be standing before the Lord with what I call the ´E-Trade Baby Surprised Face´.
I hope they´ll be wearing diapers ´cause thy´re going to need them.

As head of pediatrics, Dr. Carson has more governing and management experience than Obama does today, seeing as has yet to do any of that. That being said, I would very much like to see him enter public life, as a representative, Senator, or Cabinet appointee (HHS?). Wouldn´t it be great if he became a role model - people spend their lives doing something great, building expertise, gaining wisdom, and then enter public life to serve the people when it is most appropriate instead of the career lawyers/politicians we have now?

The very best, most dramatic, no explanations needed, antidote for the ravaging poisons of stealth Communist Obama, is to see and hear clearly more and more of the fantastic black culture that we have in every city and village of America, and all of them, millions of them, speaking up that same way Ben Carson speaks up. Ben Carson is truly an accomplished member of our society, but we need every level of accomplishment to speak up. Every righeous non socialist human being in America, needs to speak up. Vox Pop. We´ve got to verbally
beat down the would be golfing dictator, all his Marxist comrades and the entire main
stream totalitarian Diane Sawyer, Brian Wms

Dr Carson is a communicator. He can explain complex medical concepts and goals to frightened parents.
He leads a large team of people (JHU Pediatric Neurosurg.) to accomplish great things. A great man once said it´s amazing what can get done when you don´t worry about who gets the credit. He won´t worry about getting the credit, "his legacy".
If he answers God´s call to heal our nation, then he will answer, "Here I am Lord. Send me."

I don´t fear the storm that is coming from the left in order to destroy Dr. Carson´s threat to Obama and their progressive agenda. They will be as visicious wolves, but the real threat will come from the republicans who see Dr. Carson as a threat to their power and control. They can´t just have anyone rise to the position of a possible candidate for President without paying their dues to the party machine and political consultants. They can´t have that. Admittedly, Dr. Carson is a political novice, but he is a man of accomplishment and honor and that is in short supply in this day and age. His biggest obstacle will be the fact that it won´t be his turn and we just can´t have that.

Before Carson, Rubio, cruz and Cotton are pilloried by the Dems for "drinking the water" (or whatever), I´d like them to take the initiative by condemning Obama´s administration as a dictatorship--citing examples from the headlines. That will force Zippy and Co. to defend themselves and their anti-American behavior.

I would be interested in hearing more From Ben Carson. I have only known of his work professionally since before last week. Of course the media will go after him because they are stupid and ignorant. He has a professional record for at least 40 years of helping people far more than any other person that Democrats know about. The man is accomplished in this area. As for politics? He lives in Maryland, folks. Senator? Not even House Rep. Get a grip.

However, he has a message of accomplishment, responsibility and healing. He´s more than Obama ever dreamed of being. He has a message and I hope he spreads it all over the state of MD and maybe the US.

Here in VA we have a great Black speaker and Conservative. Right now he is running for LT. Gov. in VA. There are 6 other candidates. He is dynamic, funny, intellectual and Conservative. Right this second he is going around the Tidewater and VA Beach area telling Blacks the story of what they can accomplish and be without the government. He and Ben Carson have the same story. How this translates to politics and runnning for office, I don´t know yet, but these two men are doing their part to warn the LoFoVo of what they have to lose by backing the Democrat Party

What sickens me is when the republicans turn their backs and don´t defend. I watched that happen with every presidential candidate who rose to the top.

Amen # 11.
Just because Dr Carson is a gifted speaker and a brilliant neurosurgeon does not mean
he´s qualified to become POTUS.
Obama is obviously unqualified, but, two wrongs
don´t make a right.
Dr Carson is a good advocate for our side on Obamacare and we should let that be enough .
The rush to nominate someone based on a single speech makes us look silly and unserious.

Maybe #39 is one of those people referred to by #8--those whose internet comments are meant to spread discord and mock those who the democrats don´t like.

Our Founding Fathers intended that we have citizen legislators, people of accomplishment that devoted time to governing a free people, who chose them as their representatives.

I would much prefer a man of honest accomplishment, like Dr. Carson, than any career politician, whose goal in life is to stay a career politician.

I am a recovering "lo-fo"---I believed everything the RNC declared. Now I realize how these people have caused the democrat surge by being selfish, power hungry weasels just like the Dems. They withheld money from tea party candidates who beat out the RNC faves then blamed the tea party for the loss. My rule of thumb: if both Dems and RNC belittle a candidate, then he or she is probably worth supporting.

Comments here indicate people feel Dr Carson does not have the experience to be President.
A President´s primary job is to be a leader and to pick the best people for each position
under him. It also helps to be a patriotic, ethical, honest, strong individual that commands respect, from other Countries as well as from our own citizens. The current President has none of these values, in my opinion. Lets all watch and learn Friday night. It will be the first time I watched
anything but TV sports and movies for quite a while. Could not stomach all the drivel,
even on what became P.C. Fox Cable news.
Hoping to find a dark horse in Dr. Carson,
( no racism intended ). Not much you can say today in public that isn´t considered as such. The left destroyed Mr Cain´s chances.
Let´s hope they fail if Dr Carson looks to be
Presidential material. I know virtually nothing about him except he stood up to Obama
in a public venue and that speaks volumes. We need an unafraid fighter to break the back of the tyranny we are excperiencing

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

The ´soft despotism´ of regulation

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Bill Clinton White House angered a black congressman in 1993 after he was forced to show his ID and submit to a search of his car before Secret Service would allow him to enter the White House for a meeting with then-Vice President Al Gore. A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb. Stokes, a legend in the civil-rights history of Ohio´s populous

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School. Students were asked to read passages about a wife discovering her husband cheated and a mother finding out her military son was killed. They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department. She felt the pit of her stomach drop to the bottom of the earth before she even opened it. She knew it was news about John. As she read the first line,

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is not interested in running for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, the New York Times reported. A Sebelius spokeswoman told the newspaper in a story posted late Thursday that the secretary is "continuing her important work at H.H.S. and is not considering a run for the Senate." Earlier this week, the Times reported Sebelius, who recently tendered her resignation from the high-profile Cabinet job, was "considering entreaties from Democrats" to run against GOP Sen. Pat Roberts back home in Kansas. President Obama announced Sebelius´ resignation last week and said he would

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.

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.

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
