If you want to see the spot on Hannity on YouTube
The latest is that Candy Crowley of CNN (remember her from the POTUS debates?) thought that Carson's speech was "kind of offensive". Wonder exactly what it was that she found "offensive"? An Illinois Congresswoman on the show felt that the remarks were "inappropriate" to bring political views to that setting.
Actually, one might wonder that whoever invited Carson to speak might have had an idea of the views he might express, as he has made several other speeches.
Carson has a Facebook page and there are quite a lot of posts about the NPB speech there. Probably 99 to 1 in favor. There are a couple of comments that say his plans are too simplistic, however, he did say that his remarks were "summaries".
Also saw that he runs a charity golf tournament each year to raise funds for Carson Scholars.
I keep thinking of the educational aspect ... of the dumbing down of curriculum; that our worst schools are in our poorest areas. The inner city schools are also often the schools with the most violence to further interfere with the education process. Yet school choice vouchers are almost always unpopular with the teachers' unions. If a student's parents are wise enough to realize their kid has a chance if given education, those are the students who could be "rescued" from those environments to start with.
I can't remember for sure, but I think that Dr. Carson had some speech impediment when he was young. And in another speech I watched, he also uses notes ... though they seem to be just a "guideline" to lead him from one topic to another.
The POTUS looked like he was texting Joe Biden the whole time. "WTF! This guy sux! U know what time we get outta here" :-)
