Why a Johns Hopkins Neurosurgeon Is Getting 2016 Presidential Buzz

If conservatives are looking for a political outsider with an inspiring rags-to-riches story and who could effectively challenge President Obama’s policies on health care and taxes while also quoting Scripture and criticizing political correctness, look no further than Ben Carson.

Carson, raised by a single mother in a poverty-stricken home, who went on to become a top Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon, gave a nearly 30-minute speech at the National Prayer Breakfast last week that indirectly criticized many of the policies promulgated by President Obama -- all while the president sat just to his side.

A YouTube video of Carson’s speech has since racked up more than 1 million views. A Wall Street Journal editorial ran under the headline “Ben Carson for President.” Carson told Sean Hannity on Fox News, “If the Lord grabbed me by the collar and made me do it, I would. It’s not my intention.” Hannity replied, “I would vote for you in a heartbeat.”

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

he got 30 minutes because its a christian initiative.

obama was there because the election is over and it won't hurt him with his godless base
ben carson is legend in the capitol area
he has performed surgeries no other human has ever done successfully
as far as being an authentic christian who really submitts to god - he is the real deal.
he doesn't 'use god'. he let's god use him.
i know him from my 10 years involved in john's hopkins christian outreach as director of international ministries for the church i attended.
he caame to a fund raiser we held for our young mother's home and gave the keynote. http://www.ministriesofcompassion.com/hiding_place/photogall...

people often meet him and they're changed forever by the cloud of inspiration that follows him.

"as far as being an authentic christian who really submitts to

god - he is the real deal."

Only him and God know if that's true. Maybe you should have said "I think he is the real deal."

"he doesn't 'use god'. he let's god use him."

Again, you have no way of knowing if this is true or not. I've seen plenty of people doing good works in public but rotten deeds behind closed doors.

"i know him from my 10 years involved in john's hopkins christian outreach as director of international ministries for the church i attended."

You know of him most likely.. Although nice.. him coming to your church for a fundraiser and being in a group he helped out isn't proof of anything but your ability to fall for the slightest of feel good situations.

We've yet to find out who this guy really is.. Obama seemed like a likable fella too until the public got a whiff of the real guy.

I don't know but I bet this

I don't know but I bet this guy is wishy-washy pro-gun control, pro-abortion, pro-big government... so the queen's fox news love him naturally.

Many more 'wolsheep' will be offered up to the grassroots over

the next three years.

Then the ball will drop for the anointed one! Who that will be depends entirely upon the strength of the grassroots and the power of the precincts.

If the latter are strong then an unknown deceiver will arise like the fake Ross Perot. The grassroots will need to use sound logic and strict constitutional adherence to defeat such.

If the grassroots are weak, then the anointed one will be shoved down the willing throat of the ignorant electorate... once again!

I'm not sure about his political views..

But I enjoyed his speech.. Even more so watching Obama's expression while he was pointing out the many flaws of the administration

There is gold, and an abundance of jewels;
But the lips of knowledge are a more precious thing.

Thank you. My thoughts exactly.

Cool speech, but I think he's a Democrat. Hannity was schmoozing him up on his show the other night. He looked really uncomfortable being on the program, kinda like "I hope none of my friends see me on here....Oh that's right, they're watching msnbc...whew!"

Carson said he is an

Carson said he is an independent. A DPer posted a link earlier from open secrets showing that Dr. Ben Carson donated $1000 to Romney in 2012.

I thought the donation was to Obama

.. let me go back and look

A poster said it was to Obama and you said in the open secrets link you found a contribution to Romney.. yet when I tried.. it appeared wiped out.

Before people on here start

Before people on here start calling for this site be renamed the "Daily Carson", we should remember a great piece of scripture:

"You shall know them by their fruits."

I.e. you will know a person by their acts, not their rhetoric. If this guy believed in small government, he wouldn't be giving $1,000 to Mitt Romney.

Ummm, we don't know where this guy stands on anything!

Come on, Hannity...what do we know about this guy other than a speech?

I am not saying he is a joke like Herman Cain, but everything I just read COULD have been applied to Mr Cain pre-2011....and we know how that ended.

I see two factors

that are important here
1) Majority of GOP wants somebody who promotes Jesus and blames everything on Obama;
2) Majority of Americans (75% of adults are affirmative-action recipients: women + gays + some ethnic men) do not trust their livelihood to a white man with brains and integrity.
