Skip to comments.Dr. Ben Carson leaving Johns Hopkins surgery post
Posted on 02/12/2013 7:17:12 AM PST by pgkdan
Be still, my heart. Dr Benjamin Carson is freeing up time and energy to pursue his passions in politics and education, retiring from surgery at Johns Hopkins University Hospital. Could world-renowned, up-from-the mean-streets of Detroit inspirational figure be the Man on a White Horse who could rescue America from the fiscal and social death spiral the progressives have foisted upon us?
The Wall Street Journal said it first: "Ben Carson for President".

Can we be committed to not joining liberal rags when they come out and trash this guy? I was never so disgusted as when I witnessed members of this forum joining the likes of Politico while they savaged our GOP Presidential candidates like Cain, Bachmann and Perry. Freepers were actually joining the Politico with statements like: “Yep, Bachmann’s just not ready for prime time!”
Can we please stop letting the Left define our people? Lets try something that the Dems always do: Defend their candidates! You almost never see Democrats piling on their people. Maybe this is one time we can learn something from the Left.
“”Im sure Gloria Allred will soon be on TV featuring woman after woman who have had affairs with Dr. Carson””
OR that she herself had one with him. She’s back in her hole for now - let’s keep her there.
In an interview he had said he planned on retiring as surgeon and was going to teach some and focus on education.
I missed that. Who is that “one”?
No he doesn't. Like all politicians judge them by what they do not what they say today. Carson has been a loudmothed hard line gun control advocate for many years and is no friend of conservatives. Now because he suddenly makes a few conservative noises, the gullible strap on their knee pads. A few words doesn't mean he's a conservative and it especially doen't mean that he can be trusted
I’m really mixed on this. I will look forward to having Dr. Carson articulating conservative values, but I saw (the results of) his work at Hopkins and hate to see that end. We all do reach a certain point where our lives take another direction and we must trust that the children who went to Hopkins will find that he’s brought up superior a generation of equally competent successors to continue his work.
“”Well it has been nearly a week and one who knows him has come forward that doesnt have the highest respect for Dr. Carson””
I don’t understand.....
Yes, we have. And more than once.
Maybe he and Sarah Palin could get together. She could give him some advice on how to handle all the crap that will come his way just for being a success and having a compelling message.
Great advice. I hope people take heed.
Why, (gasp) he might have at some time expected women at work to be personably responsible instead of treating them as a victim class.
It should read ‘no one’...:)
But he's black. Wouldn't that be wonderful.
Yep, even the WSJ isn’t above sensationalism in hawking for readership.
Ben Carson did give a good and long needed speech, but our side needs to think before leaping. Right now conservates are making pisspoor poker players.
“Carson has been a loudmothed hard line gun control advocate for many years and is no friend of conservatives.”
My question, also, is what is his stance on 2nd amendment rights? I have not been able to get a handle on it. Where did you get this information?
yep - Carson is fantastic.
Do you happen to have a link for that? Thanks. Many pediatricians advocate against having guns in the home. I didn't know Dr Carson was "hard line" on this, though.
Something tells me that this man has been too busy achieving and helping others achieve to have time for nonsense. I think they will find him above reproach with a life story that more can relate to than that of the Indonesian/Kenyan and that scares the daylights out of the left.
He’s NOT a politician!
And the NAACP will tag him as an uncle tom.
