Skip to comments.A Perfect Contrast: Dr. Benjamin Carson, director Pediatric neurosurgery / President Barack Obama

"Dr. Ben Carson was one of two sons born to Sonya Carson, a single mother who had married Ben's father at thirteen years of age. Ben's father was a bigamist, and after learning of his other family, Sonya resolved to raise her two sons alone. Though in poverty, and though she herself had no formal education beyond third grade, she insisted that her sons devote diligent efforts to their education. She required that the boys read books from the public library each week and write lengthy reports for her (which she would review for them to support their effort, despite being unable to read). She worked hard to support them financially, in staunch determination that she would not be a victim, and neither would her children. In short, the Carson family is a testament to personal perseverance and the success that follows.....But to focus on the contrast between their healthcare approaches alone is to miss the deeper contrast on display. That is, the contrast between Dr. Ben Carson and Barack Obama, the ideologies that have driven their life's work, and the results of that work....

very impressed with Dr. Carson
Love the poem “Yourself To Blame”, which the Dr. Referenced.
Obama was clearly as distraught at that breakfast that he wasn’t raised by the same type of mother as the rest of us should be for him. But coming from a situation of dysfunction and abandonment doesn’t excuse what he has done later in life, enabled by idiotic voters or not.
The look on Obama’s face during the speech was priceless.
BTW, did you guys catch The Kenyans face? Obama was completely pi$$ed. Not only is Obama an intellectual lightweight compared to people like the Good Dr. Carson, but he knew Dr. Carson's message would connect with the average citizen. There are times when I see cracks in Obama’s armor, and one of these times was when Dr. Carson was telling the Kenyan what he thought of his Socialism.
Obama would be nothing if the MSM didn't cover for him and protect him. I hope he has a complete meltdown in the very near future live in front of millions of viewers. Obama is a thin skinned little Marxist.
Dr. Carson perfects the American Dream. He is a marvelous human being, with a wonderful family, largely due to his moral strengths learned at his mother’s knee. The contrast between his authenticity and the Halfrican’s phoniness could not be more pronounced. Same goes for the wives of the two men — Mrs. Carson has been a full and faithful partner in numerous charities and helping-up efforts for children in need of the kind of discipline and inspiration Dr. Carson’s mother provided — without the bling and adoring press corps following her around. God bless this man, his work, his family and his testimony.

At the end of his speech, he did not even acknowledge the occupier of the White House.
The contrast was interesting! A real person next to a fake!
I would say the 'O' is a "lightweight" in every area compared to Carson. How many lives has the Good Dr. Carson saved? How many families had a tiny baby returned to them, who then grew into adulthood?
What has BO done to compare to that?
“The look on Obamas face during the speech was priceless.”
Obama is a poseur narcissist.
Carson is the real deal.
Obama, for the first time, was exposed in public as a fraud.
The medical term for this is “B*tch slapped”
I hear B.O. is pretty good at playing golf and basketball.
My early impression is he is very Reagan-like.
For me, he is a very acceptable heir to Reagan's legacy. We'll see.
