Dr. Benjamin Carson’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this week astounded many Americans. Some people found strength in Carson’s straightforward discussion about God, family, and politics; yet, other people found the speech offensive.  Perhaps no other person categorized Carson’s speech as inappropriate for the occasion more than Bob Beckel.

According to Beckel, Carson’s main purpose in speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast was to gain “15 minutes of fame.”  Beckel’s accusation is laughable at best and shows a level of ignorance and incompetence that has become typical of Progressives as of late.  If only Beckel had behaved in a manner befitting a true journalist and done his research, he would have found out that Carson is a well-known and highly respected professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery, and pediatrics at the reputable Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.  Additionally, he has served as the director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center for more years than Beckel can count.  Carson holds over 50 honorary doctorate degrees and is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and the Horatio Alger Society of Distinguished Americans amongst other prestigious organizations.

In his speech, Carson used charm, wit, charisma, humor, and intellect to address important issues that concern many Americans today.  Unlike Obama’s speeches laden with empty rhetoric, Carson discussed the significance of our liberties, the burden of taxation, and the importance of education for all Americans.  Yet, instead of recognizing the significance of the speech to America’s future, detractors, such as Beckel, have tried to undermine the position of this great American.  For Beckel, it would seem Carson’s gravest sin was his conservative political stance on the issues.  Apparently, Beckel has no qualms about applauding speeches given by a man out of touch with America’s heritage and with a shady background.  Clearly, being a conservative American who loves God, country, and the Constitution would offend any Progressive especially one as ignorant as Beckel.

    Actually, it’s Beckel looking for his 15 minutes of fame. He’s just angry that his “messiah” took one to the chops. Carson stole the moral high ground from “The Won” and now the left is crying about it.
