Black Dr. Who Lectured Obama at National Prayer Breakfast Goes on Fox to Defend Himself

Dr. Benjamin Carson, the first doctor to ever  separate siamese twins, took President Obama to task over health care and the debt Dr. Ben Carsonat last Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast. Carson’s remarks have drawn criticism from many who say that the National Prayer Breakfast was not the place nor the time to offer up such remarks.

In an effort to defend himself, Dr. Carson went on  Fox’s Your World to make his case. When asked how President Obama responded to his remarks, Carson said  that Obama “came over to me and said he appreciated my speech and he admired me and took my hand and didn’t squeeze too hard.”

“What do you mean? One of those fishy hand shakes?” Fox host Neil Cavuto asked.

“It was a good handshake,” Carson replied.

Carson then defended himself against critics who said he just came to the National Prayer Breakfast to play gotcha with the president: “What we need to do is we need to be able to discuss intelligent ways of solving the multitude of problems that threatens to destroy our nation,” Carson said, “and 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 news the long run.”

During the National Prayer Breakfast, Carson said  he believes that the Bible lays out the best possible case case for a flat tax over a progressive tax.

“When I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? I see the fairest individual in the universe, God, giving us a system. It’s called tithe,” Carson explained. He says that the 10 percent flat tax that the Bible lays out is what we should adopt.

He also laid out his plan for overhauling health care.

“What can we do? Here’s my solution; when a person is born, give them a birth certificate, an electronic medical record, and a health savings account.” Carson said. “To which, money can be contributed pre-tax to the time you’re born to the time you die. When you die, you can pass it on to your family members so that when you’re 85 years old and you have six diseases, you’re not trying to spend up everything. You’re happy to send it on and there’s nobody talking about death panels.”

  1. Is he a doctor pushing his agenda to be a politician. We had pizza king Herman Cain 999 this past presidential primary race, now it seems we have 10% Ben Carson been there done that spouting biblical scripture. No doubt Fox is the leader in bringing aboard negroes that bash Obama, they salivate now because they have a “NNITH”, yeah!

  2. I wonder why of all the presidents we have had and most didn’t give a darn about us, so many people have so much bad to say about our now president.
    I have never heard Dr. Carson say anything about any other president as well as a whole lot of others, now everyone have lots of compliants against President Obama. When will we get it together?

  3. Would the MSM and Dr. Carson’s critics think that it was SO INAPPROPRIATE A VENUE if Dr. Carson’s remarks had been a fawning tribute to the greatness of this “Messianic President” and his policies?

    I think not. CNN’s Obama-Butt-Kissing Candy Crowley who was so quick to “help a brother out” during his comatose debate with Romney would have been smiling and gushing so hard that her face would have exploded if the pioneering and renown doctor had so eloquently paid tribute to the “The Great One” and would probably had done a little “wink wink” and mouthed “take that you hateful, gun loving Tea baggers and Republicans!!”

    But, since the good doctor decided to “use his own mind”, the mainstream powers-that-be and other Obama sycophants have decided to castigate this great AMERICAN who just happens to be black as if he needed to “get a clue” because YOU CANNOT EVER CRITICIZE THIS PRESIDENT at a National Prayer Breakfast or anywhere else for that matter!!

    As, for the comment that he needs to stick to medicine… why is that? Did you apply the same standards for the lying Sandra Fluke who lamented the pain and suffering of she and her female classmates at Georgetown because of the high cost of contraceptives and that’s why you and I need to pay for it? What about Kerry Washington, “Ms. Much Watch TV Scandal Whore” who actually has an affair with the fictional president (wow if that is not the quintessential role model for young girls and women, then I can’t imagine who else would be better suited!!!!)? And, how about Eva Longoria, “The Quintessential Latino Actress and Obama Ambassador” who actually said with a straight face that there was a “War on Women” in this country but Obama (according to some of his own female staffers) did not even practice what he preached in the form of “equality” for those women fighting in the trenches with him. And, finally, did you even utter a single word in protest when a host of other “Hollyweird” Obama Worshippers and Financial Investors made their comments and gave reasons why they supported this president? And, if you did not, then why not?

    Is it because they LOVE THIS GREATEST PRESIDENT OF ALL PRESIDENTS and you feel the same way and are OFFENDED that anyone let alone a physician of Dr. Carson’s stature who has spent his entire life making (NOT ABORTING AND TAKING) the lives of people to include babies and children better would have the AUDACITY to criticize the GREAT MESSIAH?!!

    Get real!!! If Dr. Carson, who works in the health care industry, is not qualified to weigh in on this important debate, then who in the hell is more qualified to? You might not agree with him and that is your right. But he has a right and an moral obligation as both a doctor and a citizen but, most importantly, as a child of God, to state his views on this critical issue and on the moral and fiscal health of a nation that has become a cesspool of waste and filth!!!

    And, Mr. Obama is not working to clean up the filth and waste, but is actually exacerbating these problems by giving license to those who want to live with excess and unrestrained pleasures and sin through rampant sexuality, contraception and abortion on demand and taking more from those of us who have worked and sacrificed, paid our taxes willingly and tried to live with fiscal and moral temperance when many have cheated the system through generations of welfare and refusal to get off their rear ends and take care of themselves and their off spring and have sexed their way through life spreading diseases, death and mayhem and now they want us to be more responsible and give more to maintain business as usual?!!!!!!!

    And, many people actually see Dr. Carson as the problem?

    • Jalen,

      You’re projecting your one-dimensional thinking on others. Everything is not about Obama. The problem with the good doctor’s presentation was he didn’t say anything new. In very best pseudo intellectual tradition, he stood there and regurgitated common knowledge and elements of the recycled Republican wish list as though he was relating something new.
      The doctor was advocating a flat tax, which would only serve to further lower the taxes of the top 1%, and he was suggesting that we Trash Obamacare and replace it with a personal savings account, just like Bush suggest that we do with social Security. One of the flaws in that system that the Republicans never mention, however, is what happens to the person of the medical care needed exceeds was in their personal account?
      So again, Jalen, everything is not about Obama; some things are just dumb.

  4. We have to teach our children that they have a better chance to be Dr.Carson than athletes and entertainers.

  5. He is on pointe about the TITHE! AMerica lives on the Babylonian system and that is why everything has faileThey ain’t seen nothun yet! God is not through allowing satan to have his time which is soon OVER! OKAY????

  6. Everyone should view his speech and make their own opinion.
    Well delivered and thought provoking presentation from an accomplished individual.
    A breath of fresh air.

  7. He works for a hospital that does not give a damn about the citizens of Baltimore, at least the poor ones.The employees and medical students walk around like they own the city and refuse to say excuse me or move out of your way. Health care reform just means they won’t be able to abuse the system anymore and continue to line their pockets.
