Dr Ben Carson At The Prayer Breakfast

Listen carefully to Doctor Carson.  He speaks truth to many things: political correctness, value of education, importance of parents to children.  Notice how uncomfortable Obama seems, as he withholds applause when the rest of the audience applauds.  Then as Carson starts speaking of ancient Rome as a warning to the US (at 17:24), I detect a bit of a "presidential glare".  At 21:28, when Dr Carson starts extolling health savings accounts, Obama looks positively glum!  At about 24:22 the clip is accelerated a few seconds; I don't know why.

In many ways, this is reminiscent of the 1994 Prayer Breakfast when Mother Teresa told the audience, including then-president Bill Clinton that "the greatest destroyer of peace is abortion".


  1. Still too respectful of this Aborter-in-Chief. Look into the history of this breakfast and you'll see it's really a venue that's more slanted to make the aborters feel like they're Christian. If they have to listen through a speech that obliquely challenges their worldview, without accusing them by name, well, that's a small price to pay. But what is the result? I would suggest Obama's image gets softened in the eyes of Christians.

    1. Whatever the purpose of the prayer breakfast might be, I thought Dr. Carson did a superb job.
