Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Dr. Benjamin Carson

Even as they lick the loafers of their bureaucratic masters, leftists often posture as if they were somehow “speaking truth to power.” This is speaking truth to power:

One of the more unique speeches delivered at this morning’s National Prayer Breakfast came from Dr. Benjamin S. Carson, a world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Carson took to the podium prior to Obama and spent 25 minutes blowing holes in his moonbat ideology.

Carson shared an intense disdain for political correctness. … [H]e said that Americans should stop being afraid to speak up to defend their beliefs… Carson held little back, condemning political correctness as “a horrible thing” that is “dangerous,” as it hampers freedom of thought and expression. …

The speech took an interesting turn when the doctor cautioned that moral decay and fiscal irresponsibility can have dire consequences — even for powerful countries like America. Here, he became even more pointed and impassioned.

“I think particularly about ancient Rome. Very powerful — nobody could even challenge them militarily… they destroyed themselves from within,” Carson continued. “Moral decay. Fiscal irresponsibility.”

Encouragingly, the personification of fiscal irresponsibility was paying attention:

“And one of our big problems right now… our deficit is a big problem,” he said, as Obama watched him intently. ”Think about it — and our national debt — $16 and a half trillion dollars.”

To illustrate just how massive the debt is, Carson told the audience that if they counted one number per second, it would take them 507,000 years to get to the sum total. The doctor said that the massive fiscal blunder is something that the nation must contend with. From there, he moved on to taxation, seemingly taking a stance in direct opposition to Obama’s.

Rather than looting “the rich” out of existence before proceeding to the middle class, Carson called for a flat tax that would allow people with money to invest it, thus permitting the economy to grow. He also denounced the bureaucratic strangulation of the healthcare industry, best known as ObamaCare.

Carson probably had to turn his mic all the way up to be heard over the sound of Obama grinding his teeth.

C-SPAN has video.

Carson’s next award could be a Congressional Medal of Countermoonbattery.

    Dr Carson is quite a gem amongst that sea of weeping pustules.
    What makes him different ?
    He is a producer.

    Man, any chance we could get this guy to replace the Moonbat in the White House? Even exchange – we’ll make Barry the Chief Pediatric Neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins (he’s as qualified for that position as he is for POTUS; and, if he kills somebody on the operating table, at least he’ll have malpractice insurance to cover the damages!), and Dr. Carson can step right in and take over (the mere fact that he’s Chief Pediatric Neurosurgeon at J.H. is enough for me – obviously intelligent [unlike Barry], hard-working [unlike the big-time duffer, Barry, as well] and eminently more qualified to be POTUS than the pathetic non-entity we have been inflicted with today).
    Just advise the Doofus that we’ve done a re-count, and sure enough, Dr. Carson got more write-in votes than Barrrrrrrrackkkkkkkk did – you know, sorry ’bout dat, buddy!
