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.
