The White House repeatedly asked Ben Carson for his speech before the rising Republican star criticized President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month.

Carson, a prominent neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins University, declined to do so, noting that he doesn’t put his speeches down on paper beforehand.

“.....and I don’t use teleprompters.”

That should have been a clue.

He gave them Biblical texts to read and understand. Didn’t he realize that the heathens at the WH are uncomfortable reading the Bible? LOL

Should the Obamadork or his clueless minions ever ask me for something, the reply would be, “I f*rt in your general direction.”

They know that Dr. Carson poses a real threat to them. Expect a relentless smear campaign against Dr. Carson from the democrats and republicans in the near future.

Bully for Dr Carson!

I love that his speech has been viewed over 2.8 million times.

That uppity Ben Carson does not know his place on the Democrat welfare plantation!

He didn't separate the conjoined Binder twins! Somebody else did that!

And, I’ll bet they NEVER AGAOM let someone speak at one of these events without providing the full text of their speech.

They probably thought “he’s black, he won’t say anything we won’t like”.

And, really, Mooch was applauding him and smiling, probably because of the assumption above.

Little Barry and The Bolsheviks want their own politburo backed by a KGB with teeth they can taste it. The MSM has done everything it can to give him the illusion he has one already.

Dr. Carson is a hero, in my book. Imagine taking a risk by merely telling the truth in America. Uh oh. How tragic.

This notion that somehow it's not acceptable for the right to have a leading figure who's white, male and outspoken is disturbing, however. Where are they? Where are the white Dr. Carsons? Do we now allow only minorities/females to speak their mind because no one can refute them for fear of appearing 'racist' or 'sexist'? Imagine if Dr. Carson was white. His gentle but confrontational speech would've been HEADLINE NEWS.. A SHOCKER! If Dr. Carson were white, the media would STILL be trashing him as 'racist' for having stood up to 0bama.

The hours, knowledge, patience and concentration required to operate inside the human brain has equipped the doctor well for dealing with the Obamatrons and their smears.
