I have followed Dr. Ben Carson's career since he was a very young man. Never have I read or heard one negative thing about or against him. Dr. Carson has performed some incredibly complex surgeries on children no other physician would or could. He is truly an example of a strong mother who put her sons first and encouraged them every step of the way to be honest, upstanding citizens. Thank God he had the guts to speak his thoughts right in front of Obama! This is a Godly man of great character and dedication to his profession.

President Obama must have been stunned at the "audacity" of Dr. Benjamin Carson in challenging his core assumptions right to his face in front of thousands of people at the National Prayer Breakfast.

Obama is not used to being challenged, especially in public, even if indirectly and without being specifically named. From the look on his face, it was obvious Obama was none too pleased with Carson's message or with his "presumptuousness" in presenting it in that forum, while he had to sit still and -- remain silent.

I think we can best understand Carson's message in light of his...
