Dr. Benjamin Carson May Run for Political Office

Neurosurgeon Who Ripped Obamacare To President’s Face Says He May Run For Political Office



The Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon who made headlines recently by pointing out the flaws of Obamacare to President Barack Obama’s face announced Monday on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” that he is retiring from surgery in June, which he admitted “does open up a lot of opportunities” — including potentially a run for political office.

Dr. Benjamin Carson became an overnight political celebrity after he delivered a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, excoriating federal budget excesses and offering his own solutions to the country’s health-care problems as President Obama sat merely a few feet away.

When host Neil Cavuto suggested Carson consider running for president himself, the internationally renowned doctor left the door wide open.

“If I had a nickel for everybody who told me that, I could finance my own campaign,” he said, chuckling. “I’ve always said that if God grabs me by the collar and sticks me in that arena, that’s the only way I’ll do it.”


Obama lowered the bar on political experience completely. I say, Carson 2016.

excoriating
Really? Stating that our debt is a problem is "excoriating... in the president's face"???

He seems like a conservative. That's good enough for me.

Independent. Sounds libertarian to a certain degree.

The other day he said "I'm neither republican nor democrats. If there was a "logical" party I would belong to it."

As long as he isn't another "Community Organizer" I think he will be an improvement.

I think he would win in a land slide. Even if Hillary bought Obamas vote fraud machine.
