CPAC 2013: Dr. Benjamin Carson Says Barack Obama Trying to ‘Destroy the Country’ … He is Leaving Medicine and Pursuing other Opportunities, which could include Politics, Like the White House
LISTEN TO DR. BEN CARSON’S SPEECH IN THE VIDEO BELOW AND YOU WILL COME TO UNDERSTAND WHY HE NEEDS TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT … NEVER HAS COMMON SENSE BEEN MORE UNDERSTANDABLE …
A STAR IS BORN, MEET THE DEMOCRATS GREATEST THREAT … WILL DR. BEN CARSON RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2016?
Dr. Benjamin Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, who became a conservative superstar and house hold name after his remarks at last month’s National Prayer Breakfast with Obama less than five feet away stated at the 2013 CPAC event eluded that President Barack Obama was trying to “destroy the Country”. Ya think? Although he did not come out and name Obama by name, Carson presented a hypothetical what if one in the White House was trying to destroy the nation? Carson stated that if it were him, he would create division among the people, pitting people against each other. He would then create a culture of ridicule for basic morality. Then he would undermine the financial stability of the country and drive it so far into debt and weaken and destroy the moral of the military. At the conclusion of his hypothetical, Carson suggested that Obama is, in fact, the president doing nearly everything imaginable to destroy the country. Carson opined, “It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now.”
As reports by CNN, Dr. Ben Carson said Saturday at CPAC that he was leaving medicine and pursuing other opportunities, which could include politics. Carson is a huge threat to liberals and Democrats as he disproves the Left’s lie that there is no color in the GOP. Of course the MSM will be quick to call him an Uncle Tom and dismiss Carson. During his speech at CPAC Carson stated, “When did we reach a point where you had to have a certain philosophy because of your skin color,” asked Carson, who is black. As stated at Policymic, during Carson’s speech at CPAC today he made several veiled reference to running for political office, and one not so veiled reference: “Say you magically put me in the White House.” His comments were met with a sanding ovation. Yes, he is a threat indeed to Obama and Democrats.
“There are so many more things that can be done,” Carson said, pointing to his educational foundation Carson’s Scholars.
Asked if he would consider entering politics, Carson said, “Once we get that taken care of, who knows.”
During his speech, Carson further fueled speculation that he’ll run for elected office, asking hypothetically, “What if you magically put me in the White House?”
The crowd roared.
This is a must see VIDEO of Dr. Benjamin Carson at CPAC 2013 …
Check out the comments at 8:18 when Carson says “What if you magically put me in the White House?” and the roar of the crowd.
Dr. Benjamin Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital who garnered national headlines for his pointed remarks at last month’s National Prayer Breakfast, says that President Obama and his political allies are trying to “destroy the country.”
“Let’s say somebody were [in the White House] and they wanted to destroy this nation,” Carson postulated in remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained the country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military. It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now.”
Carson, who is 62, said that the blame for the nation’s current state of affairs does not lie with “any one particular person.” His barbs, though, were clearly aimed at President Obama.
EXIT QUESTION: Don’t imagine if Dr. Ben Carson was in the White House … What if he was in the White House? This is the type of individual that needs to be there. Not because of his color, but because of his vision, common sense and brains.
UPDATE I: One of the best lines of the speech is when Carson was talking about some of the criticism he receives … He’s a neurosurgeon, so how could he know anything about economics? Carson’s response, “It’s not brain surgery”. Carson then opined that even as a lowly brain surgeon he knows that having the highest corporate tax rates in the world, then of course corporations are going to go elsewhere. Corporations are not in the business to be social welfare organizations. They are there to make money and a wise government knows how to use that to their advantage.
President Barack Obama Says He Won’t Balance Budget ‘Just for the Sake of Balance’ … In Other Words, He Will Never Balance It!
File the following under something we did not know … Barack Obama has no intention of ever balancing the budget.
In an exclusive interview with ABC News, President Barack Obama rejected calls to balance the federal budget, as set forth by Rep. Paul Ryan (WI-R) in his recently released budget, in the next ten years and instead argued that his primary economic concern was not balancing the budget, but rather growing the economy. HUH? Growing the economy, how does this socialist, anti-capitalist, over-regulating president plan on doing this? What a shock, Barack Obama has returned back to his fear mongering and smear tactics after Paul Ryan released a responsible way to provide growth and reduce the budget. Let’s face it, Obama has no idea what he is doing with the economy and does not plan to reduce the deficit, because he is the one who has mainly helped in creating this $16 trillion and counting debt. The only growth that Obama knows is the record number of Americans on food stamps.
Obama, I plan on balancing the budget this much.
My goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. My goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that we are going to be bringing in more revenue,” he said. Obama rejected a proposal put forth by Rep. Paul Ryan today that would balance the budget in ten years, saying the Republican House member’s plan “slashes deeply” at programs like Medicaid.
Instead, Obama went back to his more comfortable demonization and “Divider” in Chief, community agitator mode and told George Stephanopoulos that Ryan and Republicans are attempting to balance the budget on the backs of the poor, the elderly, students. So much for the “offensive charm”, welcome back the blame and division of America. So I guess Obama is trying to destroy America on the fronts of the poor, elderly and students? Just wondering, what ever happened to shared sacrifice and everyone is supposed to have skin in the game, including the poor, elderly and students?
We’re not gonna balance the budget in ten years because if you look at what Paul Ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucher-ize Medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like Medicaid, you’ve essentially got to — either tax — middle class families a lot higher than you currently are, or you can’t lower rates the way he’s promised,” the president told me. “So it’s really, you know, it’s a reprise of the same legislation that he’s put before.” “If we controlled spending and we have a smart entitlement package, then potentially what you have is balance — but it is not balance to, on the backs of the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, families that have disabled kids. That is not the right way to balance,” he said.
As we are reminded by the WAPO, Obama plans to release his own budget plan in April, two months after the president is required to announce his budget priorities to Congress. Far be it from Obama to actually perform the required duties of his office. Yet another case of leading from behind as Obama will first see the Ryan and Senate Democrat plan before he puts together his own. Like he would know how to create a budget in the first place. With this deficit $trillion spending president, it is akin to an alcoholic penning his own “what I will not drink today” plan.
Paul Ryan: GOP Budget Blueprint Includes Repeal of Obamacare (Obamatax Job Killing, Budget Increasing) Disaster
This weekend on FOX News Sunday, Rep. Paul Ryan (WI-R) stated that the budget blueprint he plans to unveil on Tuesday will promote repealing Obamacare. Let’s hope that both Ryan and the GOP are sincere and have a spin and the conviction to go through with this. As we continue to learn every day, Obamacare will bankrupt the United States and destroy jobs. We need healthcare reform in the US, Obamacare is not it. Obamacare is not providing any of its promises, in fact it is doing just the opposite.
Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, said Sunday that his new budget includes the repeal of President Obama’s health-care reform law known as ObamaCare.
Ryan told “Fox News Sunday” that the new proposal will make enough cuts to balance the federal budget in 10 years, compared to his previous one that tried to achieve that goal in 25 years.
“We think we owe the American people a balanced budget,” the Republican congressman said.
Ryan said the focus of the ObamaCare repeal would be to stop the expansion of Medicaid, the federal program that provides medical services to low-income U.S. families.
“Our budget does promote repealing ObamaCare and replacing it with a better system,” said Ryan, who did not say whether his 2014 budget is based on a full repeal.
Former Speaker of the House Democrat Nancy Pelosi may have told only one truth in her political life when she said, We have to pass Obamacare to find out what’s in it. However, it was like playing Russian roulette in doing so. Guess what America, there was a bullet in the chamber.
As reported at The Hill, the Federal Reserve released an edition of its so-called “beige book,” that said the 2010 healthcare law is being cited as a reason for layoffs and a slowdown in hiring. The complex and all encompassing law is not just about healthcare, its about control of ones life and the government take over of healthcare. Why would one think that there are over a thousand pages? As reported at the Weekly Standard, that Obamacare baffles even its ardent supporters as was the case with Donna Brazile who famously tweeted her confusion a week or so ago. The bill is awesomely complex and the claims made for it by its authors and supporters are impossibly optimistic many of whom may not really expect it to perform as sold. Obama, Pelosi, Reed, Democrats and the liberal MSM all knowingly misrepresented Obamacare and inflicted this Hell on America.
America, Pelosi, Obama and Reed at laughing at you!
The Federal Reserve on Wednesday released an edition of its so-called “beige book,” that said the 2010 healthcare law is being cited as a reason for layoffs and a slowdown in hiring.
“Employers in several Districts cited the unknown effects of the Affordable Care Act as reasons for planned layoffs and reluctance to hire more staff,” said the March 6 beige book, which examines economic conditions across various Federal Reserve districts across the country.
That line was found in a section of the Fed’s report on employment, wages and prices. That same section also said the Atlanta district noted that healthcare regulations are so burdensome there is a shortage of compliance specialists.
“Atlanta noted a lack of compliance specialists due to heavier regulations in the healthcare industry,” it said.
Remember when Nancy Pelosi told us that Obamacare would create 400,000 jobs, almost immediately? She stated that this job was not only about health care, it was about jobs too. As it turns out, it was about neither and you bought it hook, line and sinker America.
Obamacare is a nightmare for America and now it appears that the cowardly establishment Republicans do not have the spine to defund this beast.
SNL Mocks Obama and his Sequester Armegeddon Exaggerations … Obama Admits, “I Really Have No Idea How Money Works” (VIDEO)
Every once in a while when SNL decides to take Barack Obama to task and mock him for his actions, they hit it out of the park …
This weekend was just one of those times when during one of their skits they skewered Obama for his exaggerations of Armageddon and the apocalypse following the sequestration taking effect. Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live’sPresident Barack Obama tried to put a human face on the effects of sequestration — a difficult task, he admitted to the nation, because “I really have no idea how money works or budgets work.” As we always say, what makes humor more humorous is when there as truth added. I think many can admit that Barack Obama has no idea how money works or budgets either. With out of control spending, no budget and no clue, SNL nailed it. However, the only thing that SNL failed to mention is that the sequester was Obama’s idea. So for all his whining, belly aching and blaming of others, Obama needs to look no further than into the mirror to place blame and America is beginning to realize it. Maybe that’s why suddenly Obama and his minions have back-tracked at their claims of the end of times due to sequestration.
From The Blaze:
Saturday Night Live’s President Barack Obama tried to put a human face on the effects of sequestration — a difficult task, he admitted to the nation, because “I really have no idea how money works or budgets work.”
But everyone’s making sacrifices, he said — “Michelle will only do four television appearances a week, down from her usual 75.”
Bringing up a parade of federal workers to explain the toll the forced budget cuts will take on their jobs, one Border Patrol agent said they’ll now have to let every 10th Mexican across the border, while an astronaut said their helmets will no longer have glass in the front and they’ll have to hold their breaths when they do spacewalks.
It wasn’t all bad news, though: One schoolteacher was actually delighted she lost her job and doesn’t have to teach “Beowulf” to nightmare teenagers anymore.
President Barack Obama’s job approval numbers are back into the 40′s. It’s only a matter of time that voters have buyer’s remorse and are sick and tired of the lack of leadership from this president. The consistent excuses and blame are growing old. So is the lack of jobs. Obama is the worst job recovery President since the Great Depression. Obama can no longer blame Bush and his exaggerations of the apocalypse of sequestration will be his undoing. Americans patients will grow thin when they realize that he cares more about his legacy than what’s good for Americans and the United States.
UPDATE I: As reported at the Politico, Obama’s approval rating was 46 percent between Feb 29 and March 2, down from 53 percent a week earlier.
The drop comes after Obama and Congress failed to reach a last-minute deal and automatic sequester cuts kicked in across the government on Friday.
His disapproval rating also jumped to its highest level since November, hitting 46 percent over the weekend, up from 40 percent a week earlier.
Is it a coincidence that Obama’s approval ratings have fallen following the sequestration, or is it a result of? As stated at Powerline, Obama made promises he did not keep, he has made outlandish claims that the sky would fall and he lied when he claimed the sequestration was not his idea. Are the people finally getting fed up with Obama?
Is it because folks remembered President Obama’s promise during one of the debates that there will be no sequester? Is it because wrod got out that the sequester was Obama’s idea? Is it because folks don’t mind the sequester and resent Obama’s effort to make it sound like the end of the world?
Mitt Romney Discussing the Sequester: “I see this as this huge opportunity, and it’s being squandered by politics … The hardest thing about losing is watching this golden moment slip away with politics.”
This morning in an exclusive interview on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Mitt Romney and Ann Romney for their first major interview since his November Presidential election loss. Romney stated that President Barack Obama and Congress missed an opportunity and have squandered an “almost once-in-generational opportunity for America to solve its fiscal problems.” Romney told Chris Wallace that it killed him not to be president finding solutions to the nation’s problems. Romney slapped at Obama for not leading or bring people together. Instead, Obama was playing politics. There probably are many people right now that wish Romney was president. However, all the US has to look forward to is four more years of the miserable same.
“I’ll look at what’s happening right now, I wish I were there,” Mitt Romney said. “It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done. The president is the leader of the nation. The president brings people together, does the deals, does the trades, knocks the heads together; the president leads. And — and I don’t see that kind of — of leadership happening right now.”
From Bloomberg News:
That opportunity, Romney said in a “Fox News Sunday” interview was the combination of the expiration of Republican President George W. Bush’s income-tax cuts at the end of 2012 and the automatic spending cuts that went into effect March 1.
“I see this as this huge opportunity, and it’s being squandered by politics, by people who are more interested in a political victory than they are in doing what’s right for the country,” Romney said in the Fox interview. “And it’s very frustrating.”
“The hardest thing about losing is watching this, this critical moment, this golden moment, just slip away with politics,” Romney, who lost the 2012 election to President Obama, a Democrat, said.
Romney didn’t say what he would have done instead.
Obama “has the opportunity to lead the nation and to bring Republicans and Democrats together,” Romney said. “It’s a job he’s got to do and it’s a job only the president can do.”
Another Accomplishment for Barack Obama … Americans See Biggest Monthly Income Drop in 20 years As Obama Adds $6 Trillion to National Debt
Thanks to Barack Obama … Incomes Down and Debt through the stratosphere.
Americans saw their income drop so dramatically in January that it marked the deepest one-month decline in 20 years. Of course the bias MSM will have you believe that it is merely a coincidence that this occurred on Obama’s watch. It was Obama’s tax the so-called rich agenda that made corporations pay out early dividends to avoid the upcoming Obama tax hikes. It was Obama’s refusal to extend the payroll tax cuts that made most workers (including the middle class that Obama claims to care about) had to pay 2% more in taxes this year.
Obama must wet himself laughing every day that an ignorant electorate reelected him DICTATOR
Americans saw their income drop so dramatically in January that it marked the deepest one-month decline in 20 years.
Personal income decreased by $505.5 billion in January, or 3.6%, compared to December (on a seasonally adjusted and annualized basis). That’s the most dramatic decline since January 1993, according to the Commerce Department.
All this as Barack Obama added $6 Trillion to the National Debt.
Since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, more than $6 trillion dollars has been added to the national debt.
“Without fanfare, the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department quietly posted its daily debt report showing the total public debt of the U.S. government topped $16.687 trillion. (To be exact: $16,687,289,180,215.37),” reports Mark Knoller of CBS. [debt clock]
“On January 20, 2009, the day Mr. Obama took office, the debt stood at $10.626 trillion. The latest posting reflects an increase of over $6 trillion.”
And debt is expected to increase by nearly another trillion this year. “Nevertheless, the Office of Management and Budget projects the national debt will continue to increase by over $800 billion this year and by amounts in the range of $500 billion to $800 billion in the out years – all of which will add to the national debt.”
Barack Obama is killing America.
President Barack Hussein Obama stated, “I am not a dictator. I am the president.” Really? It’s been my experience in life when ever some one has to tell you who they are not, they usually are.
Isn’t it dictators who disregard the will of the people and cram their agenda down the throats of those they rule, such like Obamacare? Isn’t it dictators like Nicolae Ceausescu, Saddam Hussein, and Fidel Castro who also released criminal prisoners? Isn’t it dictators who play class warfare and keep its citizens at each others throats so that they can rule by fiat? Isn’t it a dictator who threatens the media to keep them in line so that they will operate as their propaganda tool? Isn’t it a dictator who wants to keep the people dependent upon the government and food stamps, and cause individuals to struggle as median incomes fall? Isn’t it a dictator who makes false promises to their people to keep them in line when they knew all along it was a lie? Isn’t it a dictator who would consistently show contempt for the US Constitution whose sole purpose was to define federal authority and the rights of the People?
Isn’t it a dictator who would watch millions of Americans struggle, lose their jobs, homes and businesses while they go on vacations, weekly gold outings and live the life of Riley? All the while they say they care, but do nothing but keep the citizenry at conflict with one another. Isn’t it a dictator who would over-regulate business in order to control and suppress the economy? Isn’t it a dictator who blames everyone one else for the ills of society, when they are the one who is in control? Isn’t it a dictator who would want to control an individuals entire life from birth to death? All in all, I would say you are a dictator.
Sorry, I know tyranny when I see it.
”I am not a dictator. I am the president.” “So, ultimately, if Mitch McConnell or John Boehner say that we need to go to catch a plane, I can’t have Secret Service block the door way, right?”
The Waters who Cried 170 Million Wolves … Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) Claims, “Over 170 Million Jobs Could Be Lost” Due To Sequestration
The Democrat sequestration insanity continues …
It’s the end of times America, welcome to the exaggeration of Obama and Democrats with sequestration. Forget the Mayan end of the world predictions, we have the ridiculous comments of California Democrat US Rep. Maxine Waters. She stated in the latest Democrat “Chicken Little”, the sky is falling that sequester cuts mean “over 170 million jobs could be lost.” Maybe Rep. Waters should have had Dr. Evil deliver the statement?
Representative Waters, if you are going to cry wolf, at least get your numbers right so you don’t look like a complete, lying fool, only a complete fool. But as the Ace of Spades says, “Math iz hard.”
Yesterday we did have Mr. Bernanke in our committee and he came to tell us what he’s doing with quantitative easing and that is trying to stimulate the economy with the bond purchases that he’s been doing because he’s trying to keep the interest rates low and jobs – and he said that if sequestration takes place, that’s going to be a great setback. We don’t need to be having something like sequestration that’s going to cause these jobs losses, over 170 million jobs that could be lost.
170 MILLION? What an idiot. As stated over at Michelle Malkin.com, “There are around 150 million people employed in the United States at the moment. According to Rep. Maxine Waters, the sequester will have such a devastating impact that all of those people will lose their jobs, and 20 million of them will lose their jobs twice.” Or maybe she is counting 20 million illegals working in the US? But one has to wonder why Democrats like Maxine Waters are so worried about all these jobs lost, isn’t it Democrats and her fellow US Rep. from California Nancy Pelosi who think that unemployment is a boost to the economy?
