Fox News is carrying it live.

Ben Carson spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast and openly criticized Obamacare just a few feet from Obama.

His speech at CPAC should be interesting.

I don't understand your post. Brooks said to communicate how conservatism is caring about people, which it is. You're talking about going liberal.

The changing electorate aren't receptive to the Rep message.

Only because we're communicating and leading poorly.

I see you live in MD. Do you think better communication and leadership will change MD into a red state?

I listen to this man and I hear another great person like a Reagan. He is appealing, he can communicate and he encourages you by just listening to him.

He IMO is the whole package and would be great for the country should he choose to run IMO.

Great man IMO.

Well, the vast majority of the county believes the county is headed in the wrong direction and have little confidence in Mr. Obama’s economic policies. If businesses and families were moving to California I would be concerned but when they are fleeing in droves, there is definitely an opening for conservatives.

Considering the people in large cities voted for Obama in droves, many who live there may not be mentally stable enough to own firearms. (just kidding)

The Second Amendment is very important to me, so this doesn’t sound good. I will be watching and listening carefully to him. I hope he realizes the Second Amendment applies everywhere in the United States.

Well, I think that a majority of Republican politicians don’t care about Republican voters, so how far ff the truth are they?

I’ll second that. Great speaker. So much commonsense. A good and decent man. GOP better hang on to Ben Carson.

Dr. Ben Carson’s CPAC 2013 Speech: ‘Economics Is Not Brain Surgery’

When asked by Beck if people should be allowed to own semi-automatic weapons, Dr. Carson said: "It depends on where you live. I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it."

Dr. Carson added that if you live “out in the country somewhere by yourself” and want to own a semi-automatic weapon, “I’ve no problem with that.”

Notice he did not say No, you should not be allowed to own semi-automatic weapons no matter where you live. Which you have ignored

I didn’t ignore anything.

And your own quote shows he is in favor of some gun control that’s un-Constitutional. It’s also one of the arguments the Left uses, ‘falling into the wrong hands.’

Missed Dr. Carson’a speech; hope it will be rebroadcast. Have heard him before and I too have faith that he can be educated on semi-automatic firearms. We should be aware that he has spent many years at Johns Hopkins; their School of Public Health is the source of much anti firearms rights propaganda.

And that is exactly why we need to be divided into two separate countries.

I know you're kidding but doesn't his opinion have the whiff of Jim Crow about it. Inexplicable.

So did CA in 1984. We are no longer the same country 29 years later. MD will never vote for a Rep for President in our lifetime. It is among the bluest of blue states.

“Gun rights are not absolute!”

Is that Dick Durban or......

- When some people get way up where the air is thin in their exec jet they seem to lose touch with the United States Constitution.

What new progressive gem will next fall from their elitist lips?
