Love the bat-eared-b*stard’s face as he watched a real man at the podium who has morals,talent, charisma, and achievement.

Obama is slime.

Dr Carson should be our next president.

“Dr Carson should be our next president.”

What they would do to him would make Herman Cain look like a saint.

I've seen/heard it and think Hussein must have been thinking the doc just blew him away and he (Hussein) could never be that fine a speaker or achiever or come up with solutions to govn. problems that would work and not be communist. I'm sure he hates the doc and also wishes the doc wasn't black. He can't call the doc a white hater of black people.

Our affirmative action president looked like he had a bad taste in this mouth the whole time the good doctor was speaking.
Owebama was clearly outclassed.

Couldn’t be a bigger contrast between Dr. Carson’s and Obama.

Dr. Carson is brilliant but humble and spiritual. In case you didn’t know it he’s one of the worlds top neurosurgeons, pioneering pediatric surgery.

If you’ve never seen the movie about him, see it. It’s very inspirational. I think it’s called “Gifted Hands.”

At one point it looked like Obama was texting someone.

Cuba Gooding Jr. portrayed the doctor in a movie called Gifted Hands. You can see it on Netflix.

The speech was a breath of fresh air and Obama looked like he was going to get up and leave. The doctor did not shake his hand before or after the speech.

Brilliant speech.

The Marxist was only thinking the entire time “I’m right and he’s wrong.” The Marxist is a complete and total narcissist and ideologue. Nobody, not even a more accomplished, articulate and renowned black pediatric neurosurgeon who grew up in poverty, can convince the Marxist that his views are incorrect. All observers of the Marxist must understand this basic fact.

Right. He said his mother was marreid at age 13. I would bet my life that O’s goons were all over that rather implausible claim. (for one example). But this guy is brilliant and a true credit to his race, his profession and to his fellow Americans.

I am listening to this version and it won’t allow me to skip ahead. I did listen to C-SPAN and it abruptly ended when he said, “we are one nation...” (should have been “...under God” but C-SPAN and WH censors probably yanked it).We’ll see how this ends.

I've received the youtube/email of this speech from several friends. They are not who I'd call very politically engaged - so that's good news.

Loved Dr Carson's speech and so thankful it's going viral with mainstream folks, too.

I am so happy to see this wonderful man on the news and speaking against the commie tripe the Prez is dishing out.

Ben Carson was wonderful when handling my sister (RIP) and parents for surgery on my baby nephew 25 years ago. I never went to the hospital but he was kind and humble to them and reassuring as my mother recounted again the other day. Indeed everything went fine.

God has blessed this man and continues to.

Keep in mind that during the formative years, age six to ten, while our school children were reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every morning, Barack Hussein Obama was in Indonesia responding to the Islamic call to prayer. Patriotism was not instilled in his heart as a child like American children, but instead he was instructed on devotion to Allah. That could explain why he doesn’t seem to have any loyalty to this country or our Constitution.

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

The man was apparently too in demand saving kids but said on Fox & Friends this morning that he will be retiring from surgery in June and plans to speak out more. Hopefully in an electoral capacity if that is where the Lord is good enough to lead him...

Fox News link - the one started on FR to Youtube last week is now over 200,000 hits, and the side bar there shows about a dozen other links to the same speech - probably over a million hits over the weekend with all the C-Span, news outlet and Youtube availability totalled - impressive and well deserved......

Interesting watching The Won's body language during the Doctor's speech. The typical Obama upward tilt of the chin, then stroking of the chin, the lowered head, the rubbing of his eyes, the finger alongside the nose and cheek, all are telltale body language messages that help to relay what the person listening is thinking, either consciously or unconsciously. From the site http://1to101.com/Body_Language>, we can learn:

•A tilted head symbolizes interest in someone or something.

•A lowered head is a negative signal that communicates acceptance of defeat.

•Touching or tugging an ear indicates indecision; though it’s also sometimes done when a person is being untruthful.

•Someone may touch or slightly rub their nose if they are doubtful about what is being said or if they are rejecting an idea.

•People place their hand on their cheek when they’re thinking or evaluating.

•A person stroking their chin is evaluating or making a decision.

•Projecting the chin towards another person demonstrates defiance or aggression.

•Failing to look someone in the eyes displays a lack of confidence.

•Lowering the eyes is a sign of submission, fear or guilt.

•Staring is interpreted as aggression and implies a person feels dominant and powerful.

•People who feel insulted, caught-out or threatened, will likely break eye contact.

•A person who consistently looks around them is bored with a situation / conversation.

•Fiddling with items (e.g. keys or a pen) can be a sign of nerves or anxiety; alternatively it may be done as a result of boredom or impatience.

There are other things he commonly does such as forced smiles and his habitual touching of his face, while listening to someone that indicates a self-consciousness that I think he STILL suffers from and tries to cover up. He did not one time applaud the speech, even at the end, which says a lot. His narcissism is innate and will eventually be his undoing. I'm no psychologist, but he is pretty easy to "read" coupled with his own words and ideals.

I especially liked the comparison Ben Carson made of the debt load to time; if you counted one number for every second, how many years it would take to reach 16 trillion.

Cain also came off as something of a lightweight pizza guy. Even the media only picks on its own size. This is a world class brain surgeon with a heavy duty intellect and problem solving ability. Although they probably will go after the creationism aspect. I could care less how the speech made Obama feel. Carson could be the best thing for the Republican Party since Reagan.

Well to me it seems the communist propaganda machine posing as our MSM is reacting as they usually do: Completely ignoring him. I’ve only seen him mentioned on Fox. I would imagine the communist propaganda machine would like to trash him because he made the admitted foreign born twice unconstitutionally elected Kenyan look bad, but I would imagine they can’t find any dirt on him although his mother only had a 3rd grade education so I assume communist propagandist Matt Lauer will be bringing that up shortly.

“but I would imagine they can’t find any dirt on him although his mother only had a 3rd grade education”

Based on what I heard him say on Fox on a couple of different interviews, she only had a 3rd grade education while he was growing up and she was supporting his siblings and him with 2-3 jobs as a domestic. However, on 1 show (don’t remember if it was Hannity or Fox & Friends) he said that she got her GED and later went to college and got a degree (IIRC he said she got a doctorate).

0bama, Kerry, and their ilk wouldn’t even be interested in the solutions proposed by Carson,
because their goals are NOT about things that work,

their goals are about control of people.

Just put it in my queue. Since it is a rainy day in Ga, it is a good day to relax, put feet up & watch a movie.

“0bama, Kerry, and their ilk wouldn’t even be interested in the solutions proposed by Carson”

A non-racist who ignores skin color would quickly conclude that The Marxist and Carson have virtually nothing in common. They share little experiential commonality. Even if he tried, the Marxist couldn’t understand the viewpoints of Carson. To the Marxist, the principles of self-determination, hard work and delayed gratification are foreign. In fact, the Marxist strongly distrusts people who adhere to and espouse these principles.
