Ambush at Hilton Hollow

| February 9, 2013

Wow! The commander-in-chief of the most powerful military force the world has ever seen walked right into an ambush with no cover, no concealment and no security at the National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton. Forced to sit at the dais and suck it up while a renowned pediatric neurosurgeon from Johns Hopkins Medical School, Dr. Benjamin Carson, debunked the concept of Obamacare as well as pointing out the president’s seeming indifference to the national debt, Obama did his best to smile but he simply could not suppress that droned-out expression, the one, you know, that kills.

Obama’s first frown comes a few minutes into the talk when Dr. Carson uses the term, PC, for politically correct, in his discussion of how difficult it is to speak these days without offending someone’s too-tender sensibilities. The doctor uses humor and evokes a laugh from the president but the presidential expression becomes somber again when Carver flat-out states that political correctness is a social evil in the way it prevents honest discourse and the exchange of ideas.

Obama continues to maintain a somber mien throughout the remainder of the speech as Dr. Carson decries the dumbing down of education in America and undermines Obamacare with the offer of a simpler, funded from birth, medical savings account, much as George Bush proposed. I may be wrong but I do not think I saw the president join in the frequent applause a single time until the conclusion of the speech. He sat there primarily stone-faced and unresponsive throughout.

Dr. Carson came across as an intelligent, self-made man of great common good sense who is neither a declared liberal nor conservative. However, that uncommon good sense and repudiation of political correctness and all those things that are wrong with this liberal-controlled country most assuredly make him a conservative thinker. To stand up there and speak his mind so openly in front of the president makes him a man of uncommon courage as well.

Want to bet Obama’s praying he never gets another egg-on-your-face breakfast like this one?

    This guy has balls. I don’t think he’s getting an invite to the Christmas party.

  2. Ex-PH2 says:

    Isn’t this like a bird targeting your car right after you washed it and made it look all pretty?

    Big like!

  3. DefendUSA says:

    Yep. I’m gonna brag here, welp, cause I can. My brother-in-law trained under Ben Carson. Brilliant man, says he. Lucky him to have some insight into this guy. Would he make a President? Not so sure but at least he can hand out the common sense and logic when it’s needed most!!

  4. OWB says:

    Somebody has to say it – this guy is obviously an ignunt racist ’cause he, ya know, didn’t kiss the ring of the massah. Besides all that, he’s one of those eeeeeeeeeeeevilll rich dudes. Prolly a bully as well. And he, like, mentioned the BIBLE!

    (Did anyone check to see if he has a concealed carry license?)

  5. Bruce says:

    There just maybe a drone strike in his near future.

  6. SJ says:

    Dr Carson is a RAAAAAAACIST!!! Oh. As you were.

  7. Bill C says:

    It looked like the water in Obama’s water glass was boiling.

  8. B Woodman says:

    Massive like. Watched the video, the guy had mucho gusto good “common sense” (which ain’t so common any more).
    Plus, it’s a wonder you don’t hear his big brass ones clanking as he walks down the hall. Really! To confront The Anointed One, contradicting His Special Policies, to His very face??
    If Dr Carson were native American, what he did would be a massive counting coup, he’d be made a war chief.

    “Racist” label application coming from the left in 5,…4,…3,…

  10. pete says:

    i think moochelle wants a divorce,,,she was clapping her fat ass off like 3 people!

  11. Frank G says:

    the man is smart, common sense, not an entitled racism victim. The anti-Obama

  12. Green Thumb says:

    I love it.

  13. Susan says:

    The only arguments the Dems. seem to be able to make on this one is either (a) the “time and place” argument (i.e. the prayer breakfast is suppose to be apolitical); or (b) the disrespect to the office argument. Based on the treatment of GWB, they are both epic fails.

    I think he did a masterful job of being respectful and delivering a devestating blow to all of The One’s arguments.

  14. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Poor obamaman had to listen to statements such as this:

    “Some people say, ‘Well that’s not fair because it doesn’t hurt the guy who made $10 billion as much as the guy who made 10.’ Where does it say you’ve got to hurt the guy? He just put a billion dollars in the pot. We don’t need to hurt him. It’s that kind of thinking that has resulted in 602 banks in the Cayman Islands. That money needs to be back here building our infrastructure and creating jobs.”


  15. Guy says:

    anyone else notice this was NOT mentioned on CNN?

  16. B Woodman says:

    #16 Guy
    Wouldn’t know. I don’t watch CNN. But it wouldn’t surprise me. The silence coming from the LSDM (Lame Stream Dinosaur Media) on too many news-worthy items is deafening.

  17. Devtun says:

    The Emperor normally doesn’t rise before noon…BO kinda sleepy at the early morning NPB – or just plain bored.

    Kerry, Obama yawned through National Prayer Breakfast; Dr. Benjamin S. Carson unleashed a keynote speech of epic proportions

  18. DaveO says:

    The Prognazis have tried to destroy Dr. Carson before for his unwillingness to stay on their plantation.

  19. Ex-PH2 says:

    I thought it was an excellent speech. Dr. Carson is a brilliant man.

    I haven’t seen such a sourpuss look on anyone in a long time as the look on BO’s chops when Obamacare was being dissected by the good doctor. Pout, pout, pout. How petulant can you get?

  20. Just like Jimmah Cahtah; I suppose that Obumbler takes his sex while on his back because all he knows to do is screw UP.

  21. OldSoldier54 says:

    THAT is going to leave a mark.

    Thank you Dr. Carson, for being such a fine American!!

  22. UpNorth says:

    @20, Ex, isn’t Hussein Arabic for petulant? Just askin’.

  23. Devtun says:

    Hussein means derelict, AWOL, and lying sack of sh*t…Panetta and Dempsey couldn’t answer questions from the armed svcs committee about what specific orders the President issued and why he failed to follow up on the Benghazi attack…fock POS bathhouse Barry, apparently Jay Z and Beyonce were far more important.

  24. PFDRbrendan says:

    I could not like this article enough! The good Doctor makes a solid point about how being PC discourages honest discussion. Great article!

  25. Ex-PH2 says:

    @23, 24, I don’t know what the translation is into English, but in English, petulant means ‘spoiled brat annoyed at not getting his own way’.

    I think a shift in attitude by a lot of people is coming — people who went with the original message of ‘hope and change’, who are not seeing ‘hope’ and don’t like the ‘change’.

  26. kp32 says:

    Doctor Carson is obviously a racist to disagree with Fearless Leader.

  27. MAJMike says:

    Which Lib-Cong said, “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism?”

    Oh, wait. That was during a Republican Administration. Speaking “Truth to Power” during a Dem-Cong Admninistration is “impolite and in poor taste.”

    Never mind.

  28. kp32 says:

    @16- I could also not find it on MSNBC.

  29. LanceCooley says:

    That’s two prayer breakfasts he’s been trounced on, viz. the one a couple years ago where Eric Metaxas called him out on abortion.
