Ambush at Hilton Hollow

Ambush at Hilton Hollow

Russ Vaughn

Wow! The commander-in-chief of the most powerful military force the world has ever seen walked right into an ambush with no cover, no concealment, and no security at the National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton. Forced to sit at the dais and suck it up while a renowned pediatric neurosurgeon from Johns Hopkins Medical School, Dr. Benjamin Carson, debunked the concept of Obamacare as well as pointing out the president's seeming indifference to the national debt, Obama did his best to smile but he simply could not suppress that droned-out expression, the one, you know, that kills.

Obama's first frown comes a few minutes into the talk when Dr. Carson uses the term, PC, for politically correct, in his discussion of how difficult it is to speak these days without offending someone's too-tender sensibilities. The doctor uses humor and evokes a laugh from the president but the presidential expression becomes somber again when Carver flat-out states that political correctness is a social evil in the way it prevents honest discourse and the exchange of ideas.

I do really wonder if Mr. Obama had seen ahead of time the SCRIPT, he might would have wanted to have an excuse to miss this prayer breakfast. Did you see this guy DOESN’T USE A TELEPROMPTER. He has to have a higher intelligence, than someone who always has to read his script.

Carson delivered the moment we had been long waiting for, with no state media present to interrupt or redirect the finest public, in-your-face smackdown we shall ever have the privilege of seeing. Not a chance his words can be reconstructed.

As if God delivered us a leader when we needed one. Thank you, God.

Am I racist for wanting Dr. Carson to be our President? He is dead on target. Sadly the left is already pummelling him .

Carson was awesome.

Unfortunately, all the common sense for ‘the good’ of everybody doesn’t make a lick of difference to this regime.

They ARE GOING to do WHATEVER THEY want and get CONTROL over all U.S. citizens.

We can talk all day and win all the common sense arguments...
They HAVE an agenda and NOTHING is going to alter that.

How sweet it is.

Beat me to it. Watch for what El Rushbo calls the media anal exam.

Not unrelated: the official clinical definition of “mentally ill” will embrace those who oppose the regime’s agenda. Just like in the Soviet Union.

I think Dr. Carson could be the third party candidate we have been waiting for that could actually win. I heard him say he is an independent and retiring from surgery in June.

Bob Beckel’s (FOX-”The Five)” negative response to Dr Carson's Prayer Breakfast talk was enough for me realize it must have been really good!

Loved his speech and overall message but I think the real hero is his mother!!

Perhaps all those on public assistance should have to read 2 books per week and not have access to TV :)

Being a single mother alone isn’t a problem but being one that doesn’t teach their children love, self-respect, independence and compassion is a huge problem in the US (urban, rural, and suburban).

Anyone remember when parents used to be role-models? If not one one or both of your but your best friends or a neighbor?

Isn’t it a shame that the first black president is such a terrible example and will make things harder for any Black candidates to follow? When we have such exemplary people as Dr. Carson, Allen West, Hermain Cain, etc., WHY did that horrible person have to be first?

Not aimed at Obama, US is like Ancient Rome.

Truth never be told straighter.
Obama is NOT the problem, the problem is the people that voted for him (well, plus the dead and otherwise illegal voters). Point is, this country’s people deserve the Obama curse, and I believe the MSM is THE major player in bringing this nation to this point.
