I heard about this on the radio yesterday, but some of you may have missed it. Obama attended the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday morning. It may be the last time he does so.
This video documents the comments made by Dr. Benjamin Carson. Dr. Carson is highly regarded in the field of medicine, a very respected man in his field. He is also quite the scholar. Dr. Carson lays out a very thoughtful, conservative vision of how to fix what is wrong with our country. At the 20 minute mark, he will begin a short diatribe on healthcare - a subject he is vastly more competent to talk about than His Highness. What follows is a wonderful smackdown of the Socialist-in-Chief, who is a captive sitting a few feet away.
Obama sleeps through most of this, wiping his eyes and nodding off a few times. You will see him occasionally looking into his lap, I presume to check his Blackberry. You will notice that when Dr. Carson begins talking about healthcare, Obama's eyes never leave his device - he has tuned the Doctor out, for he has no interest in hearing him. You will notice that Obama never once gives any applause.
Oh, and by the way ... Dr. Carson is black. Dr. Carson grew up in a poor part of Detroit, and pulled himself up to become a leader in his field through hard work and his God given talent - not government handouts.
You watch - today there will be liberal talking heads all over the news crying foul over Dr. Carson's rude, terrible treatment of His Highness. They will also spit out there tired old excuse for any person of color who doesn't agree with their liberal agenda - he isn't authentically black.
There are snipets of this on Youtube that are only the healthcare portion. I chose to link in to his entire presentation. If you have the time to watch it all, I think you will be pleased.
Update - Dr. Carson is the Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns-Hopkins University. That means he is VERY MUCH MORE QUALIFIED for what he does than Obama is for what he does .
Update II - Yes, it happened. On several of the talking head programs yesterday, Dr. Carson was subjected to all kinds of attacks from Obama's suck ups in the mainstream media. Basically, it was 'how dare he', or 'he's not qualified to talk about that', or the completely predictable 'he shouldn't mention God' (even though it is a 'prayer breakfast'?). CNN, MSNBC, NBC, etc ... they were all piling on.
