Ben Carson: White House wanted
apology for ‘offending’ Obama

Daily Caller, by Alex Pappas

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/15/2014 5:22:51 AM

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Must protect The Precious. He is so vulnerable and the victim of racism growing up in upper middle class Hawaii with a full boat scholarship to Harvard Law, and two advances on a failed autobiography in his 30´s, and a two-year senator elected to the Presidency, etc. What a miserable failure he is as a human being.

It´s interesting that when Obama feels insulted, the person who is accused of insulting him is expected to apologize. Yet, when Obama does the same thing, he isn´t expected to apologize. Ben Carson was expressing his opinion (he does knows something about healthcare). More often than not, Obama insults people just to try and marginalize them.

This is what we´ve come to expect from our thin skinned narcissistic jackenape pResident. Obungler can insult the opposition all day long but if we dare offend him we must apologize. I think not. Did Reagan and both Bushes demand apologies from the leftist morons who disagreed with them. You know that if they did the LSM would´ve called what I´m calling this person now a big crybaby. Dr Carson only spoke of that which he knew about. As far as I´m concerned if that made Odumbos big ears flare up then too bad.

America deserves a man like Dr. Ben Carson at the helm after the disaster of Obama. We would still have to contend with a majority of nincompoops in Congress and the Supreme Court, but it would be an excellent start.

President O and his regime are completely void of any integrity, honesty, or love for America traits; and they have no real interest in anybody or anything but themselves and their ideology.

They are true left wing narcissist, who are on a mission to destroy America. Dr. Carson is as foreign to them as evil is to good.

ooooh! Him got his feelings hurt.
It is true, then. The truth hurts.
Of course the offense was simple: the speech did not originate with TOTUS (the teleprompter of the United States). Instead, speaking from his own heart and his own head, Dr. Carson made observations based on his own experience.
How dare he!
Give us more offenders of the One, Lord.
He and his mooching wife (and all their kin) have certainly offended those of us taxpayers to pay their way.
When do we get an apology?

On page 123 of Dr. Carson´s book AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, second paragraph, he says the following. The WH should read what Carson says:

Undoubtedly some critics will try to discredit me by saying, "He is a brilliant surgeon, but he knows nothing about politics, law, and economics, and should confine his opinions to medicine." As I already mentioned, however, five physicians signed the Declaration of Independence and several were signatories for the Constitution of the United States of America. In addition, physicians are the most highly educated group in the nation, trained to make decisions based on facts rather than emotion. They tend to be excellent with numbers, very concerned about the welfare of others, and accustomed to hard work. I speak at many medical school commencements and always encourage physicians to get involved in community affairs and in politics. In fact, I would love to see scientists and engineers get much more involved in the political process, bringing their no-nonsense common sense and logic to the table."

IOW Barry and his regime don´t bring any of those things to the table and Barry is offended because Dr. Carson may have pointed it out. Boo hoo, poor widdle Barry. Truth hurts.

Barack 0bama is a petty narcissist who continually demeans the office of the Presidency. He is without a doubt the most unfit and unqualified man to hold that office in our history, and the first President who neither loves his country nor his countrymen. Indeed, he does not view us as his countrymen at all.

Ben Carson´s name seems to be brought up often these days as a potential candidate. As much as I admire him and his courage, ideas and values, I hope he does not consider running for President. We need someone who knows how to get things done in the political world (like a Governor)rather than someone who has great ideals but no experience as any type of executive.

Great comments, Obama is summed up perfectly.

Ideally, Ben Carson could have gone privately to the president and enlightened him on several subjects, and the president would have listened.
A (very) imperfect analogy I´m thinking of is Nathan going to King David about David using his power to steal the only precious thing Uriah had, his wife, and then to murder Uriah by sending him to the front lines. David humbled himself immediately and repented. Probably much harder for him to do than for Obama.

But Carson knew that would not have worked because we are dealing with someone that can´t be reasoned with. Someone who does not put God above himself.

Ben Carson is one of those people who truly you cannot find very often. Let´s support him 100% and then more than that. I would vote for him in an instant. Anyone (like Obama) who doesn´t think much of Ben Carson has never bothered to learn his background and life story and incredible character and accomplishments.

I bet the guy who scheduled Carson for the prayer breakfast got punished.

Yes, Dr. Carson believes in GOD. There is someone else that believes he IS GOD.

And that excerpt from his book is truly right on the money. We desperately need more persons like doctors, engineers, and other like persons to be involved in our political process. James Madison even made the comment in one of his letters that political decision need to be made by REASON not by emotion. But, sadly, what we have for a political base is mostly lawyers, a group that specializes in tugging a peoples emotions.

#9, I think your close but I believe his offense is blasphemy, zero is much more than a mere king.

#25, I agree, but with reservations, to this segment, “In fact, I would love to see scientists and engineers get much more involved in the political process, bringing their no-nonsense common sense and logic to the table." While their skills would be an asset, today’s scientists tend to force results rather than analyze them. For example, climate scientists that know what it takes to secure government grant money.

#35, it’s really not that tricky to make this about race, in earlier times the slave owners wanted to keep the blacks “in their place”, the rats have just redefined what “their place” is. Dr. Carson is an Uncle Tom created by republican “racists”.

FTA: “In his speech, he railed against “political correctness” and offered specific ideas for health care reform.” Zero talks about being open to any ideas people might have but views any offers of ideas as insults. Honest reporting would point this fact out, but then again, I dream too much.

I think Obama has proven to us that a dog catcher could handle the presidency better than he can, so Dr. Carson has enough experience for me. Seems like insider experience is the kiss of death in D. C. -- so I´m going to promote any conservative that is NOT a politician.

Ben Carson should be held up as everything that is great about this country. But, in the Alice through the looking glass country, he was dis-invited from giving the commencement speech at the school of which he is a distinguished professor. How many lives, the lives of very, very ill children did he save? Brilliant, humble, and a God loving man, what an insult to ask a man of his stature to "apologize" to a pathetic pot head that had done nothing with his life other than become a paid agitator. The insanity that has become this country at the hands of the MSM and Democrats is disgusting.

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters.

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price. (Of course, auctions often break

Your health care: Obama´s
$18,000 broken promise

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore.

Jose Antonio Vargas and
the End of Driver’s Licenses

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
