Fletch Dr Ben Carson's Speech at National Prayer Breakfast

For those who missed it, here is Dr Ben Carson's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast a few weeks ago. It made quite an impact for the fact that he was quite critical of some of the Administration's policies and Barrack Obama and his wife were sitting right there. He makes some good points about Political Correctness stopping us saying what we want to say, education, and taxes.

If you have not heard of him, Dr Carson pioneered hemisphereoctomies in surgery - that is removing an entire half of a brain when it has a tumour etc. This can only be done up until the age of three years old because before three, the other half of the brain will take over the functions of the missing half, but not after that age.

Some are asking whether he will run for President.

It's a good speech.

Interesting how suddenly "speaking truth to power" is out of vogue...

Yes, definitely a good speech. Saw it recently on Crusader Rabbit, and glad Fletch posted it here too.
