On Monday, fueling the 2016 presidential speculation, conservative commentator Dr. Ben Carson released a video titled "Can a doctor be president?" Dr. Carson pointed out doctors are trained to be rational and make evidence based decisions in the video...

By all means, let’s choose our candidate based upon the color of his skin as the number one priority.
Don’t you have to be a lawyer?
Well, if a union organizer can be POTUS I don’t see why a right-thinking doctor can’t.
I’d really like to see him run for mayor of Detroit. He’s a hometown hero and might actually inspire some of the people to stand and do something for themselves.
If he can hang in there till he decides to leave without being forcibly removed, he will have bonafides.
If an unaccomplished, ignorant, community agitator can become pResident, anyone can.
Why doesn’t Dr. Carson try at the mayoral level, then the governor level, before he tries at the presidential level?
Even if we have a collection of nitwits currently at those levels, it doesn’t negate the need to show competence first in large-scale organizational management.
About the only people that I would consider prepped to slide into the White House as a first governmental job would be, for example, whomever is running Ford.
isn’t it important to make a distinction between just getting elected to an office and being able to effectively function in it ?
If an actor can be president so can a doctor!
As a doctor, Carson takes the Hippocratic oath to perform his service without doing harm to his patient (ie, patient being the USA). This in itself would qualify him to be a $Trillion times better POTUS than the current ‘resident, who apparently is following the exact opposite of that oath.
Only for conservatives, otherwise why would the majority of those voting chose the ignorant POS? Twice.
Well, if a jackass community agitator from Kenya can be President, why not an accomplished doctor from the United States.
with numerous cases of obvious vote fraud in all the key swing states in 2012, if anyone believes that obozo was legitimately elected, then they also would likely be looking at purchasing some prime swampland.
I would like to hear how he would deal with anti second amendment traitors.
I see you have already made the comparison. Sorry for the double post. (not really)
Considering that we now have a college lecturer who after 12 years couldn’t earn a promotion to ‘associate professor’, I believe a doctor may be over-qualified for the job.
If a homosexual Muslim doper can be president, why not?
You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to be President, but it helps!
If the President were to recognize the actual purpose of the office as based in the Constitution, s/he could be any well-educated person. The last non-lawyer President was Reagan; before him it was Eisenhower, and Truman before him. All three acquitted themselves well in the office, and so would Dr. Carson, should he choose to run and be elected.
