Let's start with a more recent one:

“One thing I always believed strongly in was personal responsibility and hard work,” he said.“I found the Democrat Party leaving me behind on that particular issue.”

Personal responsibility and good choices are not required under the socialist nanny state! That's the Democrat's mantra, and how they keep getting elected.

I like this one:

“I would simply say that everybody has problems no matter who they are and whether they’re able to overcome them depends on how they view them,” he said.“If they view them as a containing wall, then it becomes an excuse for failure — but if they see them as a hurdle, then it’s something that strengthens them for the next battle.”

I make good choices and you try madly to pretend I'm not up on IMMR over 90%. Seems stupid, from your position, but I'm willing to pretend you can explain....

Throughout the interview, Carson skirted major questions about taxes, healthcare, race and history.

He complained about politicians who demonize their opponents, but then he called people who disagreed with him “absurd;” he said those who support “Obamacare” are ideological but that his proposal for health savings account was just common sense; and he arrogantly dismissed callers who challenged his interpretations of American history.

Carson was so slippery that when one caller criticized him for extolling the robber barons while ignoring the fact that they exploited thousands of laborers to build the nation’s infrastructure, Carson simply said:“I think there is absolutely nothing that is ever done that is perfect. It doesn’t matter what you bring up, I can find something wrong with it.”

The most egregious example of Carson’s arrogance, though, came when he was asked to defend his position that political correctness stifles honest debate in America .

The good doctor had just finished ridiculing a group of people who, he said, had “ostracized” a man for using the word “oriental” to describe an Asian. When host Tom Ashbrook followed up by asking if Carson, as an African-American, could think of any terms that might be offensive to him and other black men (i.e., the “N” word), Carson slithered around the issue.

“Let me tell you a secret,” Carson said.“I was doing an NPR interview a few years ago, and the correspondent said,‘Dr. Carson, I notice you don’t seem to mention race very often. Why is that?’ And I said,‘It’s because I’m a neurosurgeon…’ And I said,‘You see, when I take someone to the operating room and I cut the scalp and peel it back and take off the bone flap … I’m actually operating on the thing that makes that person who they are. The cover doesn’t make them who they are. And those of us who are extraordinarily superficial in our thinking, we spend way too much time thinking about the cover and way too little time thinking about the content.”

His “answer” not only ignored the important point of the question – namely, that words are powerful instruments that can be destructive and hurtful – it showed that Carson was trying to avoid an issue that undermined his own logic about political correctness.

The interview exposed Carson as a fraud — a man with paper-thin opinions based on either ignorance, self interest or his own sense of right and wrong. They were certainly not based on any facts.

Carson has every right to speak his mind. But for his own credibility, he might want to stay in the operating room rather than venture into the public square.

Your unspecified sources can spin Mr. Carson any way they want. It does not change the fact that the left is deathly scared of him.

Yes, Slewzie, you did make a good choice when you spent that forth year in third grade, but that doesn't qualify you to give advise on anything.
And, have someone read the story about the boy who cried wolf to you. If you lie about everything no one will believe you about anything.

“Let’s say somebody were [in the White House] and they wanted to destroy this nation,” Carson postulated in remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained the country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military. It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now.”

I gave you Judge Its....(not 27-58 Judge its like the Seattle Sociopath gives herself on posts she writes to herself and replies to herself, just one from me to you)

This said, I believe that you made one omission in your post.

The Sheeple cannot be held to account because they lack the Morality required to be "Willing".

The acts of yer basic Demokrat Sheeple are on autopilot. There is no conscious level of honesty. Situational Ethics drive the Emotionally Damaged Dependents.... They be 3rd and 4th Generation Victims. Thise lives cannot be consumed by ideas like "thought"....they gots free shaat to be gittin!

No Demokrat in Power today, and only a handful of Republicans are worthy to Shine Mr Carson's Shoes!

I am not saying that I think he may be a great politician, but he is no doubt a Great Man that ALL should admire!

He may not have made $1.26 on his One IMMR Stock, but he has accomplished a few things almost as notable as The Googler Liar that abuses humanity with her existence!

Sociopath,

Your Psych's told you there is no God because they feared those voices you hear in your head.

Godly people do hear from God in many ways, and they live their lives accordingly.

You never can. You are to stupid and defective to discern anything, let alone anything God may be trying to show you.

It is best if you simply go to your Savior, Beelzebub real soon!
