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.

I am not really surprised that the WH wanted a heads up from this guy.

It's probably standard practice for them and that makes sense! You WOULD need some advance notice, if you have a President who was raked up from some Chicago gutter and whose ONLY rhetoric is comprised of laughably blase, jejune, useless and empty phrases. (And THAT'S on his best day!!!)

I was astounded when I watched the speech. One of my thoughts was that the powers that be surely did not expect to hear what they did. Had they known in advance, I am sure they would have made sure that the invitation for Dr. Carson to speak was cancelled. Obama surely squirmed in his seat the whole time.

Obama was diminished in the presence of this great and brilliant man who spoke the truth.

So the white house was practicing censorship of the speech. The current occupant should resign in shame.

Dr. Carson can look forward to some repeated visits by IRS agents in the coming months.

Dr. Carson knew what he wanted to say without putting it down on paper or having someone write it for him.

And no teleprompter! ..did you see that Barry?

Yet, the vast majority of the black community will view Obama as a “savior” and Dr. Carson as stupid, a traitor, an “Uncle Tom”.

Ha! You’re so righ.

Most of the African Americans I know are incredibly out of touch with their own culture.

I worked with a girl who didn’t know who Mahalia Jackson was... or Jesse Norman, either. However, she knew ALL about and LOVED Michael Jackson...

This is nothing new. Years ago I went to see Miles Davis in Cleveland. The place was just half full and there were only about 3 African Americans there...sitting down front and presumably, related to band members.

Is Obie doing another one of his discreetly flashing a middle finger because he doesn’t like what Dr. Carson has just said? It comes on at 4:50....

The White House should have been told “No. You don’t get an advance copy”.

Obama’s “speech” at that prayer breakfast was abysmal. Embarrassingly bad. Because he did not believe one single word of it, and it showed.

“He’s also got my vote if he wants to run for office rather than saving lives being a doctor...”...he says he will run for President if God pulls on his collar, and I think God is yankin’ on it pretty hard.

Can someone please look at 4:50 in to the speech, Carson has just delivered a joke about the expensive bird and we need to speak up, obie looks like he's presenting again with the middle finger—a tactic he's used before with people that have taken a stand against him...
