“The man is a world class brain surgeon for heavens sake. I seriously doubt he is going to be intimidated by Gloria Allred and her ilk.”

That’s why they have the documentary series about him that is called “Do No Harm.” The good brain surgeon is brilliant by day, but evil at night. It’s his split personality that’ll bring him down.

One thing is certain, our side needs to stand up and support people who are willing to put their butts on the line in defiance of the shame going on now.

Our side rips up anyone that comes into play. That is why we lose!

We need to uplift, elevate, and support people that have the guts to speak truth to power. This guy did that, beyond what we have been seeing. I don’t think we need another Senator or Congress critter. We need a person outside the box.

We need to move this guy into the limelight and showcase his love for the country!

"I don't know if I'm ready to jump on a Carson for President bandwagon on the basis of the 1 speech I've heard..."

I'll wait too, but if he turns out to be a true Conservative, you can bet the GOP elite will do everything they can to demonize him.

Bump & a ping!

Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech at prayer breakfast

That links the video. It's just over 27 minutes long. It's dynamite!

Carson has been a loudmothed hard line gun control advocate for many years and is no friend of conservatives.

That's bad news. I googled "Dr. ben carson" "gun control". It's getting tangled up with gun control because gun control is in the news. Do you have any links?

“dr benjamin carson”+gun returns absolutely nothing regarding gun control.

I really like Carson but he’ll have to queue up behind Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, who are the best we have, bar none. They are the immediate future of the conservative movement and the heirs of Reaganism. They also make Obama look like he’s in grade school.

Time for you to back-up your claim with facts.

I can find nothing linking Carson to gun anything.

Whoa there, where did you hear that? I met him at a RKBA candidate campaign event more than 10 years ago, and I most certainly did not get that impression from him. Not to mention that I sure don't think he would have endorsed a RKBA candidate if he was a gun grabber.

I suppose he could have changed in the ensuing 13 years; but I would want proof.

You are going to watch docs of Carson’s caliber fleeing Obamacare. It requires murder and incompetence.

fog has been asked several times in this thread for links or some kind of proof to back up his/her assertion about Dr. Carson being a ‘gun grabber.’ Not one has received a reply, except a reference to “Hopkins 24” or some such. I wouldn’t put a lot of stock in the accusations.

I can’t remember who told me but they have a ping list which I got added to. I’m on quite a few...

It’s a relief to send my pingees a solitary ping instead of two or three.

:-)

Especially since it’s usually bad news.

Dear EDINVA,

Dr. Carson has recruited and trained worthy successors. One of them is my own son's neurosurgeon, who is good enough that what is “inoperable” for most pediatric neurosurgeons is routine for him.

Well you can stop chewing on my used TP and if you can find it watch Hopkins 24/7 a special that came out several years ago - Carson was on that and he used it as a forum to preach for gun control.

Before Monday, we will know more about this man than we know about Obama. We will know how many times he’s been sued, we will know how many of his patients didn’t survive, how many drug company reps he slept with and there will be a dose of Allred thrown in there, just in case.

Ben Carson said that he is going to retire from surgery this year and turn his attention to changing the direction of American political thinking.

The media is attacking him already.

They are mistakenly using the Obama tactic of slander against a truly great man who (unlike Obama) has dealt with a lot of adversity in his life as told in the true story, "Gifted Hands"

He has not slept with any reps. I will guarantee you this.
He is the very vision of integrity.
