WSJ: “Ben Carson for President!”

Ben Carson is the embodiment of what we like to think of as the American road to success. Faith-based, earned success that then gives back to the larger community and values the country, family and faith that made it possible. Barack Obama is the quintessential Affirmative Action baby, raised by a white Leftist mom who made sure to stoke his resentment against "the system" all the while telling him he was owed something. Ben Carson has a real skill, Neurosurgery. Barack Obama's only talent is regurgitating Progressive dogma and preaching the gospel of entitlement. Both have been richly rewarded, but I would say the fruits of Dr. Carson's life far outweigh Obama's life of unmerited favor.

Yeah Dr. Sowell is fond of pointing out the paternalistic racism endemic to Progressives/Liberals, while they pat themselves on the back for their moral superiority and "enlightened" thinking. Ha!

Yeah, Dr.Sowell is fond of pointing out the paternalistic, self-congratulatory racism that is endemic to Progs/Libs and all the destruction they have sown in the cause of stroking their massive egos and exalting their superior "compassion" and "enlightenment"

That’s almost the exact headline of a recent Wall Street Journal editorial that went viral last Friday and Saturday (although I must confess that I did add an exclamation point for emphasis). Anyway, for those unfamiliar with Dr. Benjamin Carson, he’s the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins University Hospital and the same guy who delivered those politically incorrect remarks at the White House prayer breakfast last week. And there are two passages, at least according to the journal, that deserve your undivided attention.

Carson on taxes:

Late in his talk he dropped two very un-PC ideas....
