Why would it get deleted ? There are interviews and speeches of the good doctor on Youtube going back years.

I recorded it last night and just now finished watching it. I really admire that guy. He put the community organizer class warfare Obama to shame! I wonder if Obama is so narcisstic if he can even see it at all.

You know you’ve got the real deal when the man is better in a live interview than he is in a prepared speech. IMHO.

This guy was good or better but not phenomenal at the Prayer meeting and I have seen the movie about him.
I was more impressed by Eric Metaxas at last years prayer meeting who wrote a biography on Dietrich Bonhoffer.

However, as Larry Elder has stated on his radio show, he traveled to D.C. where the Republican heiarchy had him convinced he was their man to run for (I forget) either Gov. of California or against Diane Feinstein for Senate, they needed him, they were recruiting him, they gave him every reason why it should be him...he was convinced, he said yes. He flys back to California and within 2 days he’s heard they have instead picked and are promoting a woman to run for the GOP.

The GOP is fixated on ‘pet and novelty candidates’ who they think can win. And that thinking frequently is not very deep and involves racial and gender novelty.

Thank you for posting this.

I missed the first 15 minutes or so last night and was able to catch it just now.

This man represents the kind of qualified, intelligent people we need in Government, sad to say his caliber is wholly lacking in DC.

Funny, that's just what the libs say about the GOP....

Thank you so much for posting this online video of last night's "Hannity" show! Dr. Carson was fantastic... I wish the discussion and Q&A with Dr. Carson could have lasted another couple of hours!

Hope we see and hear more from the good doctor soon.

Excellent point. That Q&A session with Dr. Carson was amazing... how often do you see such a substantive session with a President or a Presidential candidate? (Never)

I wish that Q&A session could have gone on and on... I really wanted to hear more on Dr. Carson's take on how to counter ObamaCare, how to work around it, how to possibly eliminate it, etc.

I would love to see an entire show featuring Dr. Carson and Betsy McCaughey discussing how to end ObamaCare and how to REALLY reform our current healthcare system - reform it the RIGHT way...

...”The GOP is fixated on ‘pet and novelty candidates’ who they think can win. And that thinking frequently is not very deep and involves racial and gender novelty”...

We are at a moment in history which is fraught with great danger because of the insanity of our educational system, political correctness and a media which practices pure propaganda. Those who have read and lived history are very afraid that we are sliding into the oblivion many countries throught history have experienced, especially ancient Rome which walked a path very similar to the one the US is on now. We have few heroes outside the pleasure industries of the world (Hollywood and Sports) and our culture has tried it’s best to lay God to rest. Many are very anxious and even grieved on a daily basis because they see and realize what is happening but feel helpless to do anything about it. Then, along comes Dr. Carson, who is someone most of us knew little about. I am sorry to put it this way, but, as the Dr. spoke, it was almost like God had appeared to to that prayer breakfast. We know many have tried but seem not able to stop the raging immorality going on in our institutions and our government, with our laws and our system being trampled on constantly without the objection of our system of checks and balances which are our security system. In his own quiet way, with his intellect, his morality and his supernatural gift to heal children with terrible brain disease, Dr. Carson appears to give us hope we have not had in years. His logic and clear thinking are rare and his kindness and cheerfulness coupled with his confidence are so refreshing to the heart and soul. I am hopeful he can begin some kind of healing of our national brain disease which will be lethal if not stopped. I am sorry, Sir, but Dr. Carson is no “pet or novelty” candidate. Stay tuned................

I could listen to him for hours! He speaks the truth so well and his life experiences are a testiment to who he is today. What an inspiration! Especially for the youth of this country. He has many ideas on how to educate and he certainly would be a dynamic force in that capacity. He summarizes all that is wrong and how to correct those things so well. His courage is definitely refreshing.

I don’t know enough about this guy to say he’s qualified to hold public office. Has his personal life lived up to the standard he sets in his rhetoric? I like what I’m hearing though. It’s so refreshing to hear someone frame the discussion in terms of merit not straw men. It’s a sad reflection on our governing class that we are so struck to hear conservative positions presented by someone who can speak without glorifying self or demonizing others. I often heard the criticism that Romney was “too nice” to punch back. Does a nice guy stand a chance in the cess pool of our political climate? Will this nation really allow gentlemen to govern again?

I hate to be cynical here, but I'm waiting for the FReepers who joined left-leaning rags like Politico in trashing many of our GOP candidates during the presidential Primary.

We're our own worst enemy; we trash the candidates for not being conservative enough, or we trash them because of a misspeak, or other minor offense. I remember FReepers trashing Cain and Bachmann with: “They're just not ready for prime-time.” Then these same people bitched about having Romney as the GOP candidate.

I'm sure the good doctor will have a misspeak or some other minor offense that some of the “true Conservative” FReepers will conclude makes him “Just not ready for prime-time.”

You got to give credit to the Dems in one area; THEY NEVER DISOWN OR TRASH THEIR OWN CANDIDATES.

Well said, sheikdetailfeather! I agree...

I just wish we had heard from him particularly while the ObamaCare battle was going on in 2009-2010. ie, I didn't realize only 23% of doctors in this country are members of the AMA... that was one of the supposed big reasons that ObamaCare was passed... supposedly "The AMA supports ObamaCare". Dr. Carson could have been quite a force to be reckoned with during that ObamaCare battle...

Republican establishment digging for miracles.

Dr. Carson is a fine man, no doubt, but IMHO...

He is certainly not advocating shutting down the trillion per year social welfare-related spending, that troubled me. Food stamps could and should be replaced by private sector charity simply expanding it’s current role.

His solution for medical costs included doing something to rein in insurance profits, a “non-drastic” solution that’s been bandied about for decades and is an impossibility. Higher provider, facility and equipment costs are passed through as higher premiums, and there’s no real way around that using a framework like we have in place.

He correctly noted the cost of the tort environment. He also wonderfully recalled the original, old-time idea of charity care at the physician level.

But it seems no one is allowed to go on the air with the idea of getting health insurance out of direct paying fee for service, and a person’s payments go as capitation payments directly to providers, i.e., $x per month to the primary care physician, $y per month directly to a hospitial/outpatient facility network, and $z per month directly to specialists as needed, or some similar arrangement. This is the only way to create actual competition between providers and facilities, and there are of course, various details that need to be well-designed. Interestingly, there are some such ideas, and others, springing up around the country, as the medical industry wakes up to where government is really headed with their promises of “insurance for all”.

Health insurance itself, as pure insurance, should be similar to some disability plans, where the benefit claim paid amounts to picking up the capitation payments for people who become disabled and those who are retired. That insurance would be relatively cheap, like the premium waiver portion of LTD is. It’s easier to underwrite than fee-for-service benefits because while incidence rates remain uneffected, the expected value of claims is not subject to the vagaries paying actual costs incurred.

In order to discourage people from going without a capitation plan, providers would have to be allowed to have “no-frills” levels of services for non-members, with the requirement that they not turn them away completely. IMHO, with the correct economic principles being in effect, capitation payments would be must less than insurance costs today. The healthcare system would simply clean out the waste in the system and focus on overall good results.

Of course, in a free market, reporting companies would emerge that would rate the services, allowing for decent price comparisons. Keeping doctors’ companies separate entities from facilities companies is essential to providing a real free market system.

Perhaps Dr. Carson would like these ideas, but I doubt they will make it on the air.

It was very refreshing to hear is views, he has the ability to present ideas in a straightforward fashion that causes naysayers to sit and grumpily stare, having no response.

I hope he does not become a puppet of an increasingly desparate GOP. IMHO, Dr. Carson does not want that for himself, and he will ultimately not dance to their tune, but to his own, much to the benefit of everyone.

That’s what I said last night. I could listen to Dr. Carson for hours. I can listen to Obama for about five seconds before I feel my blood pressure soar and my stomach turn.

A lot of people assumed that Obama was more vulnerable than he obviously was, but Cain and Bachmann made more than technical errors or slips of the tongue IMO; and Romney got unjustly characterized by some although I am not sure that is the reason he lost.

Qualifications for the GOP/e:

1. Gender
2. Race
3. Family Name

Conservative principles or adherence to any principles and moral values are discouraged, not required. However they will tell you that you must be able to “pretend” to have both in order to run in the primaries.

I just listened to the whole interview with Dr. Carson and was relieved by what I heard. So often I’ve been disappointed with the next great person on the right that I hesitated to even listen!

This man seems grounded and I am particularly pleased with what he understands about our education indoctrination system. I hope we hear a lot more from him. He’s civilized, direct and speaks like an American citizen as opposed to a rabid partisan.

I really appreciate his understated manner and lack of rhetoric. I’m weary of all the buzz words on BOTH sides.

God bless Dr. Benjamin Carsen.

He is literally a God-send. I pray he not only gets involved politically, but that he wins high office and brings his integrity and virtue there and begin helping America roll back the progressive/liberal/leftists clock.

Every American should wath this...all of it.

For those unfamiliar with this amazing man, watch this flick (free on Netflix)

GIFTED HANDS: THE BEN CARSON STORY

Stars Cuba Gooding, Jr - wonderful film, true story, almost unbelievable, it’s so amazing what he overcame and accomplished.

Looks like the best is yet to come, from the Hannity interview. God help him.
