Skip to comments.Dr. Benjamin Carson - Two Inspiring Videos About our Next President?
Posted on 05/03/2013 1:00:41 PM PDT by DanMiller
Many things are possible between now and 2016. Will Dr. Carson become our next President? I hope so.
This post at Dancing Czars called to my attention an interview with Dr. Carson. It seemed that it might help to pull my spirits out of the pit where they had been trying to survive since last November so I watched.
I also noticed this new video at PJTV and also found it on YouTube. Presented largely by Bill Whittle, it covers some of the same ground but is no less inspiring.
Our presidential choices in the recent past have been, at best, mediocre and far from inspiring. On the wall of my study there is still a small sign, "Oh, Alright, Fine. Romney 2012." Should Dr. Carson seek to become our next President, I shall quickly replace that small sign with one expressing far more optimism. Should he succeed, the likelihood is great that he will assist our nation in making changes that we can, want to -- and should -- believe in. Will he do everything I would like for him to do? Nobody would. Will he do lots of things that will turn out to have been wrong? I don't think so but that's possible, even though he has been quite successful thus far. Will he help to reunite our sadly divided nation? I think he has an excellent chance of doing so.
It seems clear that Dr. Carson -- unlike the incumbent and unlike former "under sniper fire in Bosnia," "what difference does it make now" likely presidential candidate Clinton, who again aspires to be
our the President -- loves the United States and wants the best for her. Based on what I have heard thus far, we want essentially the same things for our nation. True, he has no experience in governing; phrased differently, he has no experience in doing the same wrong things repeatedly. Perhaps lack of that type of political experience is good rather than the reverse. In view of the other choices, what have we to lose?
Will the Republican Party let him do what I sense he wants to do and is capable of doing? That remains to be seen. Is the Republican Party already so deeply immersed in its bad habits, and so far beyond doing what "we the people" want it to do, that there is no point in trying to push it to nominate Dr. Carson as
itsour candidate? Not yet, and even if it were we still have what Republican candidates want and need most of all -- our votes.
Those of us who would like to see Dr. Carson as our next President had best get busy. The 2014 campaign season is approaching inexorably and it may well be useful for him to get some political campaign experience. Could he help conservative candidates with whom he agrees on important national issues to get elected to the House and to the Senate? Would he be willing to do so? It will likely be necessary to ask him in order to find out.
It is not going to happen, and could we knock of this “we need a black, We need a woman, we need a hispanic” BS.
Carson is a fine fellow, but he has no desire to run, and he sure doesn’t want to run as a token.
I think Carson could well end up the VP nominee, though, which is nearly as amazing. At least he will be on someone’s list.
It is BS, or worse. If the best available candidate is Black or hispanic should he be rejected on that basis? I don't think so.
I agree that Dr. Carson would have no interest in running as a "token;" I would have no interest in having him run if he did. We just got through four years of that with President Obama and have nearly four more years to go with him. That's more than sufficient, thank you very much.
I like Carson too but he’s not presidential material.
He might be OK in the senate if we got a promise that he wouldn’t legislate his own desires over what the people want like gun control.
I very much disagree; however, if she won she would be better than Clinton. But then, so would any one of my three dogs.
I’m a hearing impaired, nearsighted White/Inuit Female with a Jewish Surname.
Thank God, I still have all my bits though. No amputations last time I checked.
Sorry, you just don’t make the grade.
A good, decent, God-loving man for president? Absolutely! It has been a long time. (Bush)
Will the left try to destroy him? of course. That’s what they do.
It’s the “White” part, isn’t it.
Why is it ALWAYS about race with you Inuit?
We are always blubbering about SOMETHING.
President is not an entry level job. I grow weary of somebody being touted for President every time they say/do something good.
You mean like "our next President" Brown or
"Our next President" Rubio
Look how those turned out.
Phrased differently, he is not a family member of either major political crime syndicate.
Thank you. Some of us hyperventilate at the first glimpse of a Republican who happens to be black, Hispanic, etc., and start chattering about “our next president.” How did that work out with Rubio?
Besides, I lost track of how many times Carson apologized for his remark about homosexuals. For God’s sake, we need someone with a spine.
Sigh... If Only..
Gov Perry at the NRA convention today.
Bookmarking...thanks, mylife. That’s a leader, there.
