Skip to comments.Conservative Doc Reveals Why He Spoke Out Against Obama’s Policies
Posted on 02/09/2013 2:55:52 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather
With President Barack Obama sitting just feet away, Dr. Benjamin Carson stood up for conservative principles in his speech at Thursdays National Prayer Breakfast, discussing the national debt, political correctness and even healthcare. Readers loved his speech so much that TheBlazes story on it went viral.
On Friday, Carson appeared on Fox News Hannity to explain why he felt compelled to speak out against the big government policies endorsed by Obama, in front of Obama.
Carson, a renown neurosurgeon, said the response to his speech has been overwhelmingly positive. However, he argued he didnt make a conservative argument, but rather a logical and common-sense one.
I dont know where we left our brains, he told host Sean Hannity.

...as opposed to one of pure power masked by visions of Utopia
I loved how he said that people who do not read and learn about history are easily influenced by the media due to their ignorance.
It was a fantastic speech. However, it was sad to watch, particularly when he talked about health care reform. Everything he said about health care revolved around reforming health care and making it more affordable and accessible. That is NOT the goal for Obama and his ilk. Therefore, we’ll never see these solutions implemented.
Same as his bit on the tax system. Dr. Carson calls it “common sense” but he leaves out (or doesn’t realize) that the system is purposely set up this way to control people. THAT is the common sense of the left. None of what Dr. Carson said will accomplish controlling people, so it’s an invalid argument.
I would agree, this is more of a logical statement.
Most regular small business men have flowed from Democratic and Republican parties over the years. What the Doc speaks at....are things that both ought to find common ground on and just grasp that regular Americans aren’t buying into the TV media stuff. They’ve actually gotten smarter over the last year or two.
For the President, I’m guessing that he will start to limit his appearances...only to places where he or a trusted Democrat Senator will speak. He was probably boiling after this speech and wanting to know who scheduled him for this.
....eyeah, the little boy king must have had his knickers twisted. Sit there knowing people are staring at you looking for a reaction
Apparently, this man has put his life and talents where his mouth is. His life is worthwhile reading about, and he actually does something constructive about what he’s talking about.
After you watch the video, check out Dr. Carson’s website - look under “Alumni” and you’ll find Rafee al Mansour who now has a grant to research the perception of Muslims in the USA. After the 40 second video finishes, YouTube helpfully pops up with all kinds of Muslim links. The other Alumnus’ video doesn’t exist. WTF?
Note the skin color of most all the scholarship recipients. Of all the people who should be listening to Dr. Carson, it should be black kids and their [single] parent. Guess we can’t be havin’ dems be actin’ white. Sad.
A neurosurgeon vs a leftwing idiot.

I saw the coverage of this speech on all the alphabet networks. They were also praising his courageous speech and his common sense logic. BWAHAHAHAHA! s/s/s/s/
Bob Beckel had his panties in a twist yesterday about it.
Milwaukee weekday 8:30 to noon local talk show host WTMJ’s (am 620 50,000 watts)Charlie Sykes played excerpts during his 1st 2 hours 2/8/12., Terrifffic
I’ve seen Dr Carson on TV before but it was in a strickly medical
context. Maybe somebody else recalls the details
On The Five Beckel threw a hissy fit because Dr Carson went political
at what was thought to be a religious function which, of course, is
something only liberals are allowed to do.
a great speech....too bad we don’t have this black man as President...
“...but rather a logical and common-sense one.”
He can deny or not; but, IMHO, that’s a huge part of conservatism.
Obama slept and yawned through the speech. Went right over his head!
Lifetime movie about Dr. Carson’s life is great!
Your reply here is SOOOOOO on the money!!!
EVERYTHING coming from the democrats (and a LOT of Republicans) now is entirely about control over we little tax payers. Their goal is COMPLETE control.
This last election told them it’s time to step on the gas as there are enough ‘sheeple’ who will unwittingly vote for them without realizing their true motive.
He twice smiled that smile he says he has for when he hates what they’re saying
Dr. Carson’s speech was above Obama’s paygrade.
I highly recommend the 2009 bio-pic about this great man. It’s called Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story. It’s available on Netflix. Watched it with the family last year — a very inspiring film.
