I have personally met Dr. Carson and he is even more engaging, courteous, and intelligent than is evidenced in the video. When you hear him speak you are impressed with his sincerity, honesty and deeply held convictions. Those convictions are based on the biblical roots of our system of government and the constitution. What a guy.

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...
