This man is not afraid to say what he thinks. He did so in a respectful manner and he did not rant and rave. I also have started to read his book and he takes us back to our values. Something that is lacking in politics today. Also, in that book he mentioned that prior to the first prayer breakfast he was told not to mention the name Jesus Christ(at a prayer breakfast) This man at least has integrity. something most in politics do not these days. You also know this man cares about people-something again that is not evident from our leaders After listening to this speech I was at long last feeling some hope for this country.

Uneva Rickman Wed, 20 Feb 2013 19:40:21 +0000 http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/?p=836383#comment-31178951 Dr. Carson, I know you have said that you will leave it to God, whether or not you enter the political arena, and run for President. I have been following politics for many years...closely so, in the past four years. It bothers me when I hear you tip-toe, with your answer of how you feel about Obama's Presidency. That aside, though, you are the first person I have heard publicly express things that I feel can turn America back to the country I was once proud of. And I sense your personal conviction in what you say. Honestly, I can't afford to buy your book, America the Beautiful (or any other book), though I am an avid reader. I hope I will be able to squeeze it into my budget in the very near future. Meanwhile, I will be praying that if our Heavenly Father believes that you are the instrument He needs to help save America from the path of utter destruction it is currently on, that He will touch your heart to honorably rise to the occasion. May God bless you in all your future endeavors. Dr. Carson,

The Bottom line here is that everyone has their own opinion on evey matter. For example: "Obama has done a good job as President". Verses, "Obama has done a bad job as President". Now, in an opinion there is no right or wrong answer. But, whoever is against one another's opinion, then the statement is then wrong. But, we have to remember; this is also an opinion we are talking about. I like to base my choices on facts. That is why I declare myself an American Independant (AI). I dislike having to side with a party, only because both sides (Dem. & Rep) have stances that fit my criteria. But, I have noticed that there has been a lot of discussion ongoing the Mr. Obama, and not to mention Dr. Carson. Now, take a deep breath and don't base your opinions about both the President and the Dr. on what it is that you believe in; but look at what they both are offering. Now, Mr. Obama has already served as President for the United States during his first term. And while the Dr. may not compare to holding a title as "President", he does have attained the title of "Neurosurgeon". Which in itself is a very large Feat. (14 to 16 years). While most people does not like what he represnts, just look at the way he was able to handle those questions with the auidence. Cailm, with mild comedy, and answered with clear motive and understanding. Now let's turn to Mr. Obama. He has stumbled in most of his speeches, (But who doesn't right?), he does bring strong emotion to what he intends to do with America's problems. But also fails to follow through on most of what he says. Now, I am not saying anything bad about Mr. Obama, he in my 'opinion' is an okay guy. And I can not really say anything about Dr. Carson, only because he has yet to be mentioned until a few nights ago. With that said, let's see if the Dr. does intend to run for presidency. And if he does, let's see what he is able to accomplish through action, and try not to only focus on his personal affiliations and base our jugement solely on that. P.s: I am also sorry for any misspelling or grammar pronunciations. But hey, I'm only a kid. Well, let’s face it everyone. The Bottom line here is that everyone has their own opinion on evey matter.

The truth is, people are forgetting where it is they come from and those thoughts, those of anarchy and Godlessness have been foretold in the scriptures. Don’t you find that incredible? I do. If you want the truth, you can find it. Not in a dark place, or in the rantings and ravings of a lunatic president who has an agenda to hurt America, not in or from a man who has lied to us over and over again, not to media who will not do it’s job, but with men who are brave and are not afraid to stand up for the truth. Do you think it was “rude” to ignore men dying in Benghazi, or do you think it is “rude” that the Obama’s spend our money on the lavish clothing and trips and millions of dollars to lure the president of Mexico into his plan, or the prime minister of China into the destruction of our county. Do you think it is rude to stick up for ourselves, and try to take our great America back? Do you think it is rude that Obama stuck his nose in the air throughout much of the speech by Dr. Carson. I read his book “Gifted Hands” years ago. I have admired him so much. He is what Obama pretends to be, but he is even better than that. So, do not give me the attitude of Ben Carson as the rude man, while Obama is clearly an evil man, and those who follow him are just as wicked. The Germans were despised for believing Hitler. I despise you who believe Obama. Yes, I will be voting for Carson. I am amazed at these comments.

The National Prayer Breakfast is hosted by members of the United States Congress and is organized on their behalf by The Fellowship Foundation, a conservative Christian organization more widely known as "The Family". Initially called the Presidential Prayer Breakfast, the name was changed in 1970 to the National Prayer Breakfast. It is designed to be a forum for the political, social, and business elite to assemble and build relationships.(SO CARSON WAS NOT OFF BASE WITH HIS COMMENTS) Since the inception of the National Prayer Breakfast, several U.S. states and cities and other countries have established their own annual prayer breakfast events. Most of the poster's on this site need to open their narrow minds. Obama has used this PB for his own Stump Speaches in the past. It is just as Carson said.... you are acting INfantile!!!!
