Video: Dr. Benjamin Carson’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast

Watch this video. Is there something that our politicians can learn from listening to Dr. Carson? What?

What important message did you take away from this video?

Dr. Benjamin Carson was silenced just like Bill Cosby was.

It is amazing how people twist what Dr. Benjamin Carson says. I guess you have to do that when you don't agree with what he is saying.

Remember, to the left, speech is only free if it agrees with your agenda.

Dr. Carson apologizes for phrasing of statement, NOT opposition to same-sex marriage

Hopkins students didn't want to hear an opposing viewpoint and Dr. Carson graciously bowed out. It's Hopkins' loss; I've heard Dr. Carson speak several times and the man speaks truth.

"Bet the White House staffers went nuts, lol."

Any remaining WH staffers are already nuts. If I had been a wide-eyed White House staffer expecting Hope and Change in 2008, I wouldn't be there anymore.

Very interesting that Obama's handlers wanted an advance copy of Dr. Carson's speech. Maybe they should spend that much energy on workable solutions and compromises, rather than damage control and political one-upsmanship.

Classy of Dr. Carson to offer the Bible verses on which his remarks at the Prayer Breakfast would be based. Bet the White House staffers went nuts, lol.

Dr. Benjamin Carson spoke and oBozo crapped his pants that a black man would dare and speak with Knowledge and understanding with eloquence as he did WITHOUT a TELEPROMPTER really pissed him off.

Ben Carson to speak at CPAC 2013

2-27-13

"He turned a lot of heads with his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month. Speaking of which, The Hill has an interesting tidbit about that speech: according to Carson, the White House asked to review it before he delivered it. Even though President Obama was speaking at the same event, that seems a bit odd, if not creepy.

Carson’s reply: “I told them that I don’t have an advance copy because I don’t write out my speeches and I don’t use teleprompters …they asked more than once … I gave them the [Biblical] texts around which the remarks would be framed … I said read those texts, the remarks will be framed around those … that should have told them something.”

The speech that rocked the world was more-or-less extemporaneous?"

eldiablopoco: "I wonder if you knew Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican."

I didn't know that, diablo, nor is it true.

>>Although King (Jr.) never publicly supported a political party or candidate for president, in a letter to a civil rights supporter in October 1956 he said that he was undecided as to whether he would vote for Adlai Stevenson or Dwight Eisenhower, but that "In the past I always voted the Democratic ticket."[32] In his autobiography, King says that in 1960 he privately voted for Democratic candidate John F. Kennedy: "I felt that Kennedy would make the best president. I never came out with an endorsement. My father did, but I never made one." King adds that he likely would have made an exception to his non-endorsement policy for a second Kennedy term, saying "Had President Kennedy lived, I would probably have endorsed him in 1964."[33]<<

I wonder if you knew that many blacks were Republicans before switching sides. I wonder if you knew Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican.

Don't be too quick to label Dr. Carson a "Republican" and please consider this:
What this nation needs, more now than ever in our history, is a lessening of political tensions and hyper-partisanship. Dr Carson is one person who could run as an INDEPENDENT and win the Presidency! To heck with the two major parties, they are both strangling this nation with their back-biting and bickering.
Both parties would have to listen to him and work with him. It could be the game-changer this nation needs.

ministorage,
I have known Dr. Carson for many years and I concur with your assessment. If he is at an age when he needs to retire from the extremely delicate surgery that he is famous for, he would make an excellent spokesman or candidate. In addition to uncommonly good common sense, he works for what is best for people...ALL people.

90% of blacks would not vote for him because he is a Republican. (Or is he?)

A friend of mine is the co-author of Dr. Carson's book, "Gifted Hands."

Dr. Carson is a humble, honest man of God.

“””Usually someone like Dr Carson, gets all kinds of hate junk from those who voted for bho, and especially from the black caucus groups, but then, this guy has faced critics before, and he gives many great speeches.”””

It has already started today I saw a story where he was accused of being “rude” to the President.
-
Liberals to Dr. Carson: Mind your manners
-
The only thing they didn’t say was that his comments were based in racism.
Now if Dr. Carson had made these statements about a white president he would be called uppity and told to get back in his place.

Most people that voted for Obama will probably not be able to sit through Dr. Carson's speech.

honestly, I'm both surprised and then not surprised that Carson had the nads to give that speech.

I almost wished there was another camera angle showing mrs bho during the speech, just to see if she had any eye rolling gestures.

Theoretically, it's a nice idea, but right now we DO have a right wing and a left wing. Unfortunately, the left wing is doing everything it can to amputate and disable the right wing and doing it with Executive Order. The left wing doesn't seem to understand that their efforts are leading to impending doom. Even after we're one bloody wreck on the rocks, they'll still be blaming the right wing for the tragedy they caused.

I have not watched the entire video yet, but I like the part where Dr. Carson asks how a bald eagle is able to fly. He goes on to say it has a "right wing" and a "left wing." He does a better job of describing it, but it has an important message.

We need to remember this if the United States of America is going to survive.
