    Dr Ben Carson For President

    Alright, who wants to hear a great speech and at the same time see Obama be really uncomfortable for a half hour?  Well in this video you get both.

    Am Spectator:

    "Here is a man whose single mother, one of 24 children — you read that right — married at 13, had two children (Ben and his brother Curtis), eventually finding out that her husband had an entirely different wife and family. Which is to say, he was a bigamist and soon departed from Ben’s family when the discovery was made by Ben’s mother. He was as well a man with an alcohol problem. Mom had a third grade education. Not exactly an auspicious start for a young African-American kid in Detroit. But Mom — that would be Sonya Carson — presented with her share of life lessons that every human being walking must face, was paying attention to her two boys. First, she set the example herself. Determined to avoid the welfare system, she worked “constantly,” Carson tells us. Her faith in God having her insist to her son, “Bennie, we’re going to be fine.”

    No. she said, you cannot watch television all the time. She laid down a rule — one of many. Young Ben would not be allowed more than two or three TV programs a week. What he must do instead is read two books from the Detroit public library — and write book reports on each. So began Ben Carson’s lifelong love affair with education — with reading. Dutifully, he would make the trek to the library, read the two books of his choice, write up book reports — and get them back from his mother with a check mark to acknowledge his work. Did I mention that Sonya Carson couldn’t read? No matter — only much later would young Ben figure this out.

    In the meantime Ben Carson went from being called “dummy” by his fifth grade friends to a top student at Yale University not to mention the top of his class at the University of Michigan Medical School. And now one of the world’s most accomplished (not to mention famous) physicians, presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush. With his low-key bedside manner that doctors the world over must surely envy, Carson’s story is the stuff of Hollywood movies — and in fact there is a movie. A movie based on Carson’s own autobiography Gifted Hands, starring Cuba Gooding Jr. as Ben Carson. "

    Hot Air:

    "Senator is a more likely bet, but Carson has the misfortune of living in one of the most reliably blue states in America. Maryland hasn’t sent a Republican to the Senate in more than 25 years. Ben Cardin just got reelected and Barbara Mikulski isn’t up again until 2016 — and she’s never drawn less than 60 percent in a Senate race. Could be that she’ll retire before her next term (she’s 76 now), but Democratic turnout in Maryland will be strong in ’16 no matter who the nominee is since it’s a presidential election year. He could, of course, move across the border to Virginia and take his chances there, but the next Senate election is in 2014 against Mark Warner — who won with 65 percent of the vote last time. Second look at running for the House instead?"

    Did any of you actually watch this?  He sounds pretty liberal - he advocates spending on education, a fair tax code with no loop-holes, he rails against special interest, and his suggestion on health care reform is that we fund HSA accounts for the poor.

    He sounds more like Dennis Kucinich than Mitt Romney.  Why would you want him to run for President?

    Another nice speech by the good doctor this week.

    It would be nice to have a real intellectual in the office for a change.

    "It would be nice to have a real intellectual in the office for a change"

    It would be "nice" to have someone with an IQ over 90 in the oval office for a change.

    Think of the money they would save in teleprompter expenses alone.
