Dr. Ben Carson On Criticizing Obamacare: "Somebody Has To Stand Up To The Bullies"
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/ ^ | February 12, 2013 | Real Clear Politics Video

DR. BENJAMIN CARSON: There are a group of people who would like to silence everybody and have everybody go along to get along, but that's not going to be very helpful for us in the long run, in terms of solving our problems. And somebody has to be courageous enough to actually stand up to, you know, the bullies.

Can you imagine the “black ops” going on to try to destroy this man at this very moment?

Dear Dr Carson,

The repulsive repubs no longer get any money from me.

However, should you run, I’ll give you everything I can spare.

Do it.

Please...let’s ditch the bat-eared-b*stard now.

I love this guy. I saw him in an interview once, speaking about all the entitlements the US is providing.... He asked "if you can show me any country in history that thrived with overwhelming entitlements, I am all ears."

It will test to see if those who call themselves “liberals” will leave this guy alone and honor his “his free speech rights.”

Oh, this guy’s very existance is enough to give the liberals conniption fits.

A black man, up from poverty through the dedication of his PARENT, not the government, that is highly successful, intelligent, independent minded, and an outspoken conservative.

They’re gnashing their teeth, you can almost hear it.

They’ll first try to ignore him, but that’s what alternative media is for - keep him out front, talking about his beliefs, and make the libs respond.

Even Cal Thomas criticized this guy’s comments as “inappropriate for the venue.” Up yours, Cal. Why are only Lib-Progs allowed to speak truth to power?

I haven't seen the name of the movie about him so I state it now; it's called "Gifted Hands; The Ben Carson Story." It is a MUST SEE !!!

Inappropriate for the venue is the criticism folks will have to get used to.

It’s going to take standing up to bullies like Cal Thomas.

The “nice” people on the right are the danger.

Make a list. Ignore ‘em.

McCain
Rubio
Graham
Cal wimpy Thomas
Kristol
Romney (gone forever)
Barbara Bush
Republican senators except a select few and they’re easy to spot
Who else?

Get out of the way.

It’s as if OB places himself in an appropriate venue.

Of course inappropriateness is in order here.

Just Duh!

We need to surround this man with prayers and vocal support.

I was shocked by Cal Thomas’s comments. I haven’t read his columns for a number of years now, but back in the day — 1980s and 1990s — I remember him as being fairly staunch. What’s the deal? I guess senility is finally setting in.

Bill Bennett called him dispicable for talking about issues at a prayer breakfast (even though it’s ok for other people).

I didn’t know that about Cal, don’t know what his thinking is. But the tax issue related to God’s plan for tithing and I believe healthcare has been a topic there before (since it’s our Godly duty to take care of those less fortunate than us).

Dem Rep. Corrine Brown: “Don’t Confuse Me With Any Facts”…

(CNSNews.com) — As part of a discussion with voters about Obamacare funding, Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.) told one man, “Don’t confuse me with any facts.”

“This is part of the problem,” Brown told an audience member who had asked about the billions of dollars cut from Medicare under the Affordable Health Care Act.

The “issues” and solutions that he talked about are based in biblical, God-given principles,

so there’s no reason NOT to talk about them at a prayer breakfast.

Told the husband last night that Carson is my new hero. He’s just telling the truth and not worried about appealing to or offending any particular voting block the way so many lying politicians do.

Good point. Got to grab the chance when you can sometimes.

If all of us wait for an “appropriate venue” to air our grievances, then our grievances will never be heard by anyone but a tiny number of people. Because all of the “appropriate venues” are carefully controlled by Obama’s bootlickers.

Never miss out on your opportunity to speak out. Appropriate venue or not.

Who is the more appropriate one at the National PRAYER Breakfast?

Who cited scripture verses to start his talk, and closed with with story of the inspiration behind the writing of The National Anthem.

“At the crack of dawn he (FSKeyes) ran out to the banister, he looked, straining his eyes, but all he could see was dust and debris.

And then there was a clearing, and he beheld the most beautiful sight he had ever seen.

The torn and tattered Stars and Stripes - still waving.

And many historians say that was the turning point in the War of 1812. We went on to win that war and to retain our freedom.

And if you would have gone to the grounds of Ft McHenry that day you would have seen at the base of that flag the bodies of soldiers who took turns propping up that flag. They would not let that flag go down because they believed in what that flag symbolized.

And what did it symbolize?

One Nation, Under God, Indivisible, With Liberty and Justice For All.

Thank you. God Bless.” - Dr Benjamin Carson

Perhaps Dr. Carson should give the response to Zero’s speech tonight...
