Dr. Benjamin Carson, a black pediatric neurosurgeon with Johns Hopkins Hospital, gave this amazing speech at Thursdays National Prayer Breakfast.

I am waiting for the Black Caucus or some jerk on ESPN to label the good doctor not a “real” black in 10-9-8-7.....
This will be on the CBS 6 PM news, right?
Better carry some drone repellant spray.
Fox says the video is currently unavailable. Was Zero at the prayer breakfast to hear the Dr.’s speech?
You can view it here on You Tube:
Yes, he was a couple of seats away, looking petulant, with folded arms, often not applauding when everyone else, even Moochelle, did so.
He had to pretend to look bored, because a man like Carson shows him up to be the cipher he is. Especially when Carson spoke of the flag.

I had the pleasure of watching a replay of the speech this am. The good doctor is an excellent speaker and he gave a great speech. I hope we hear more from him.
The idiot Big Eared Purple Lip Nothing was two seats to starboard and appeared to nod off at times during the speech. His fat ass cow of a wife was in the third seat to starboard.
The left and the drive by media are going to descend on the doctor like the storm that is in the NE this afternoon.
I had the honor of meeting this wonderful man and his family some years ago. He is a national treasure. God bless him and his wife Candi and their foundation.
"Yeah, we've heard that crap all before. Those ideas are old-fashioned and discredited.
Who's your daddy?"
This guy was great. It’s a shame the won wasn’t listening. He didn’t look too pleased at all.
He and most of the other leftist/marxists that were there know that Carson’s proposals would work,
but it’s not about whether the programs work,
it’s who’s got the power.
What he was most annoyed about, though, was probably that he couldn’t say Carson was racist and shouldn’t be listened to.
I watched a movie about him not long ago. He was the 1st to sucessfully seperate twins joined in the head.
Hope he never flies Ron Brown airline.
@ $600 a copy and rights to the projectile cannisters I'll be a gazillionare, and that'll be a good thing because then I won't have to worry about money anymore.
Now THAT is what an insperational speech sounds like!
I thought he was very Reagan-esque, too. Wonderful speech. Obama looked at the table half the time, then raised his Mussolini chin the other half. I bet that was a really long 20 minutes for The O. The Good Doctor skewered him at every turn - no, not him, just every stupid thing O believes in.
Is he any good at trimming down ears big enough for three sets of twins?
Bump for later
ATF is on their way.
Enjoy your stay in Club GITMO.
I listened to the speech, and then listened again and made an audio copy to email to my adult children, and excerpeted the part about reading being the key to the kingdom, his escape from poverty.
Too many of our childrens’ children spend too much time on Wii and Xbox. I am making this message known, hope it does some good.
I said to myself as I listened, THIS is the guy that should be President on that dais.
Our government was meant to be led by business men, farmers, shopkeepers and professionals from the real world, who would do a few years of public service, then return home to live under the laws they enacted.
Our system of government being captured by lawyers is a huge mistake.
Our system paying well-enough that being an elected representatives can be a LUCRATIVE CAREER is an even greater mistake!
Senators becoming a super-house by direct election of the people, instead of the Senate being the legislative body representing the interests of the State Governments, was a Huge Mistake!
Carson for President!
AND I do not care if he is a Seventh-Day Adventist.
He is a good and honest man, a hard worker, truthful and honorable, intelligent and inspiring by his example.
He would be a great President.
He could make Romney head of the Dept of Commerce AND of the EPA - a dual portfolio - because I think he WOULD do a great job in getting us headed back toward creating business and job opportunities instead of killing them. And during his first term, maybe they even close the EPA and make its “legitimate” function just a part of Commerce, but not its own cabinet-level position.
President Ben Carson? - hmm, interesting...
Yea, he didn’t look too happy to be shown up by a very intelligent black man that came from poverty to produce something in this world talking about fair tax and healthcare solutions.
He was sitting one person away from the DR. and did not applaud or crack a smile. He did not appreciate the good DR’s comments at all.
I don’t see him as skewing Obama so much as...
Speaking Truth To Power.
THAT is what he did!
LOL, I bet Obama was wishing those big ears didn’t have to hear what the good Doc had to say.
My favorite segment:
But you know, my mother couldn’t stand the fact that we’d been doing poorly in school. And she prayed and she asked God to give her wisdom, what could she do to get her young sons to understand the importance of developing their minds, so that they could control their own lives. And you know what - God gave her the wisdom, at least in her opinion. My brother and I didn’t think it was that wise. (laughter)
‘Cause, it was to turn off the TV, let us watch only 2 or 3 TV programs during the week, and with all that spare time read two books apiece from the Detroit public library and submit to her written book reports, which she couldn’t read but we didn’t know that. (laughter) She put check marks and highlights and stuff...
But, you know, I just hated this (reading), and my friends were out having a good time. Her friends would criticize her, they would say “You can’t make boys stay in the house reading books, they’ll grow up, they’ll hate you.” And I would overhear them and I’d say “Mother, you know, they’re right.”
But she didn’t care, you know. And...
But after while I actually began to enjoy reading those books. Because we were very poor, but between the covers of those books I could go anywhere, I could be anybody, I could do anything. I began to read about people of great accomplishment. And as I read those stories, I began to see a connecting thread. I began to see that the person who has the most to do with you and what happens to you in life is you. You make decisions. You decide how much energy you want to put behind that decision. And I came to understand that I had control of my own destiny.
And at that point, I didn’t hate poverty anymore. Because I knew it was only temporary. I knew I could change that. It was incredibly liberating for me. It made all the difference.”
A few years ago, I coached a young black kid on my basketball team. He wasn’t the best player on the team, but he was certainly the most impressive from a character standpoint. He knew my son from advanced math classes at school; the kid was one of the brightest kids in the school and everyone knew it. His goal (which I have no doubt he will succeed at) is to study at John’s Hopkins under Dr. Carson. He picked the right role model.
I wish our media did a better job of promoting Dr. Carson as a role model than the gangsta thugs they routinely portray. Of course, if they did, the whole race game is over, so I guess there’s no incentive for that.
The Baltimore Sun does not have one word about his appearance at the National Prayer Breakfast - and Dr Carson is Very Popular with Baltimore residents. One of the major philanthropists in the city. Still lives in the city and pays city taxes which are double what one would pay in the surrounding county.
I have found a new Hero. Dr. Carson is truly amazing and a Godsend. His intelligence and wisdom are phenomenal. How have I missed knowing about him until now?
I wonder if the White House Prayer Breakfast planning committee knew about his motivational and American-people loving speeches. I have been privileged to hear him several times and he really connects with his audiences.
I'm sure that having to be at a Prayer Breakfast must have felt like waterboarding to our Prez. He likes to sleep in and he does not like prayer.
Let’s all buy a copy of Dr. Carson’s book today. READ it and pass it on..This is the kind of man we are looking for to educate and inspire us. He already has proven his intelligence and wisdom through his life experience and the rare skill he has developed as a physician. Few people can compare to him. I am so excited because I have felt that someone would rise above the fray and I feel that Dr. Carson has done just that. Most other public figures look small in comparison to him. I did not find even one of his ideas that I could not wholeheartedly embrace.
Thanks for posting. A very impressive talk.
Buy his book “GIFTED HANDS” and read about this man and what a gifted genius he is. You will appreciate him even more.
I felt do much better after hearing his speech. The dark and depressing Obama years can be behind us someday because there really are examples of what America is about in these types of brilliant and patriotic heroes such as Dr. Carson.
I am going to buy his book and promote him to everyone I know.
Funny that Obama didn't stand at the end or shake the hand of Dr. Carson.
The good men don’t run for president. They couldn’t stomach it.
MAYBE we have to do like his mother did.
Tell him we aren’t taking any excuses, he HAS to be President!
Then we draft him.
We can dream?
I agree, he is an excellent role model, and such a contrast with Buckwheat, that I think he would make an excellent President. I wonder what his political leanings are. He sounds more like an independent than either of the main parties.
