    Dr. Benjamin Carson for President

    Hopefully if we have another black president it will be Dr. Carson or someone like him. Raised by a single mother who worked as a "domestic" and raised 3 sons she apparently instilled in Dr. Carson something that every American needs. Heve been unable to find the text of his speech but he had some inspirational comments on the Hannity show tonight. And he is not afraid to mention GOD. [http://video.foxnews.com/v/2152476170001/doctor-lectures-obama-on-americas-crippling-debt ]

    I have been thinking lately that Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire could well be the first woman President. She impresses me as the possible American Iron Lady like Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of Great Britain. Who better to start with than the first Black President of the United States. So in 2016 how does Carson & Ayotte sound?

    I watched a movie about this guy on Netflix, Gifted Hands, The Ben Carson Story.

    I'd never heard of him or the movie but decided to check it out sheer boredom one evening ...turned out to be a really good movie! He went from not being able to read in elementary school to a top groundbreaking neurosurgeon. Really smart guy!

    I heard many of the sound bites from his speech and heard him on Hannity. I loved what he had to say and that right in front of the POTUS. WOW--but does anyone truly believe Obama took any of it to heart?

    I met Dr Carson several times while living in the Maryland/DC area. He's a great man and wonderful leader.

    Why all this talk about a black female President -

    How about an American Indian?

    I don’t think Dr. Ben Carson has any desires to run for president but IF he did I believe the usual tactics from the media to tear him down would be hard pressed to find ANYTHING on him to do so.

    Here is his speech at the prayer breakfast:

    I would suggest that any parent with elementary aged children should sit and watch this inspiring movie about the story of Ben Carson’s life with them and have a talk afterward.

    Dr. Carson is black but not a female. Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire is a female and white.

    I have been impressed by Senator Ayotte's effort to hold Obama culpable in the Benghazi debacle. She seems to be a very intelligent person and with a well controlled manner which I believe is essential in high office.

    I had never heard of Dr. Carson until I caught Bob Beckel on the tail end of the "five" dumping on Dr. Carson for taking on Obama at the prayer breakfast. Dr. Carson is obviously a very intelligent and capable person to be able to make it given his background. He obviously had an admirable mother who instilled in him not only a work ethic, but character and the fear of God.

    There is no doubt that if Senator Ayotte ran for president or vice president she would be portrayed by the leftist media and perhaps by some on this Board as a slut as was Governor Sarah Palin.

    There is no doubt that if Dr. Carson ran for president or vice president he would be portrayed by the leftist media and perhaps by some on this Board in a manner that would make the leftist trashing of Justice Thomas seem mild by comparison.

    I have actually thought for some months that Senator Ayotte might be the first woman president. She may be enough like the "Iron Lady" Margaret Thatcher to win and govern.

    As I said I had not heard of Dr. Carson before yesterday but his willingness to confront Obama face to face surely impressed me. In fact I don't recall ever having as favorable first impression of a man as I did Dr Carson. First impressions are frequently wrong but generally must be corrected for the better.

    Obama thinks he is king. And Congress does nothing to rein him in.

    Thinking him king is mild. Apparently some of the radical leftists believe Obama is the second-coming.
