"Whether this weekend finds you blowing two feet of snow off the driveway or counting the hours until "Downton Abbey," make time to watch the video of Dr. Ben Carson speaking to the White House prayer breakfast this week.
Seated in view to his right are Senator Jeff Sessions and President Obama. One doesn't look happy. You know something's coming when Dr. Carson says, "It's not my intention to offend anyone. But it's hard not to. The PC police are out in force everywhere."

Do we have a new political Justin Beiber?
How dare that Uncle Tom, Oreo Cookie!
Well, someone from the Odumbo circle is gonna get fired for this. How dare this peasant mock the Won?
I’m seriously hoping you were in no way comparing Dr Carson with the bieber... Dr Carson is probably retiring in the next year.... so it will be interesting to see what he does next.
Really like what Dr.Carson said about politically correct speech and posturing. Essentially it is phony and deceptive behavior. It is meant to mask the true thoughts and position of those who practice it. At best it is meant to protect the feelings of people in a diverse and complex culture. At worst it is patronizing and offensive. Essentially politically correct people lie to people they engage. If they actually believe their lies, they are delusional and of course dangerous. Bring back honest discourse.
Actually my comment was directed at people like you who find a new superstar every couple of weeks and suggest that they be president based on one speech.
Next week he might turn around and suggest that we ban guns.
Did you see the video of this? Obama is there playing angry birds or something on his blackberry while Carson was speaking. Rude.
I’m pretty sure the Ben Carson for President article title... was not very serious in the first place lol It was highlighting the fact that if we elected a BRAIN surgeon, he seemingly understands the economy much better than this group of dolts.
Here’s the video for anyone interested...
It must have been very uncomfortable, Dr Carson is living proof of everything Obama does not stand for.
I’ve said before, a good black president would be great for America.
I like the idea- but does he have any known political leanings? If he’s a Baltimore resident, do they have to register in a political party? I bet he is a Republican or Independent or a Conservative- (there IS a Conservative Party in MD). Does anyone know?
Here is a C-Span discussion of his book, “America The Beautiful” by him. it is 73 minutes long, and I have not yet watched it.
For that matter, what about his views on amnesty and illegal immigration? Everyone got all stirred up over Rubio, and look what happened, and his views were already out there, it’s just no one bothered to think about it and check first before jumping on his bandwagon. Same with Chris Christie. Everyone liked his tough talk to the unions, but he turned out to be an utter RINO, and a gun-grabber.
It was a great speech and from what I’ve seen of him otherwise, I’m impressed but beyond that, I don’t know.
