Dr. Ben Carson’s speech to CPAC. Dr. Carson is a pediatric neurosurgeon, who performed the first successful separation of conjoined twins joined at the back of the head in 1987. With the aid of his mother who believed in him, he rose from dire poverty in the slums of Detroit. His is the epitome of the American success story.
He told Obama some hard truths about ObamaCare at the National Prayer Breakfast this year:
Go here to read a post my co-blogger Paul Zummo wrote about that appearance.
At CPAC Dr. Carson talked about how he would destroy America if he were an enemy of the country.
“It appears, coincidentally, that those are the very things happening right now,” Carson noted ruefully, although he went on to say it would be a mistake to pin this entirely on Barack Obama, or any other individual.
Go here to read the rest at Breitbart. Carson may run for President in 2016. If he does we will see if he is as good at running for office as he was at being a neurosurgeon. Politics is a fairly complicated business and newcomers often fall on their face. However, I find Dr. Carson very impressive. He is a man with a message and he has plenty of time to sharpen it and hone his political skills for a run in 2016. With Senator Levin of Michigan not running for re-election, a campaign for that Senate seat would be an excellent way for him to test the political waters. Michigan has been tilting more Republican lately, and I think Dr. Carson would stand an excellent chance of being elected.
I would warn him however that the nightmare of the Left in this country is a brilliant, charismatic, conservative Black man running for President, and that he and his family will receive every piece of hate mongering that the forces of tolerance can bring to bear against him if he does run for that office in 2016. It would take a very big man to withstand all that. Carson might be such a man.
