“Ben Carson for President” .. this was the title of a recent op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal in response to Dr. Carson’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. Apparently it struck a cord.
Hmm. Makes you wonder .. Marco Rubio has the Republican SOUnion response, again. Rand Paul is providing separate Tea Party SOUnion response, again; Karl Rove and company seem determined to split the party rather than acquiesce to the base. Could a “walk-on”, a “man of color”, a man with an easy manner and gift of speech, a man who openly cites his love of Jesus – a pediatric neurosurgeon no less – could he be the one who ends up ‘healing the nation’ when it’s all said and done?
One thing for sure, BO wasn’t enjoying his performance – the video is worth watching for that alone.
FWIW the author saw Dr. Carson speak at a graduation ceremony nine years ago and can attest this his attitudes are consistent from that time.
