    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.

    Seriously ? It was a Prayer Breakfast meeting which is a fancy name for a morning Political fundraiser...if the organizers of the event didnt want Dr Carson to speak , then they should have never invited him or the POTUS

    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.

    It doesn't have to be rocket science. It's simple math... for the budget, spend less than you take in. His health care plan was simple enough, as was his idea of taxation... what we have now is plenty complex. Where has that gotten us?

    Always got to love the folks that talk about someone's solution being simplistic - I guess spending more money on a problem that is not being solved is not . 3 + 3 still equals 7 regards .
