Despite having been in the presidency-seeking game for two years, the grasp he’s displayed of those issues is laughable. Like other Carson supporters we interviewed, Karen Mihalic, 61, loves that the neurosurgeon’s “not like your typical politician”. The question was about poll numbers that followed one of his more controversial statements on “Meet the Press“. “Is it possible that maybe the media thinks that it’s a bigger deal than the American people do?”
Ben Carson is hoping to awaken black voters to his campaign with a message of economic empowerment, saying the black community has been done a disservice by heeding political power overtures from Democrats.
“He’s notably humane”, Petty said if inquired what kind of he liked about Carson. “Yes, you have to”. Carson said he felt NASCAR fans should be allowed to display the flag on private property if they wanted.
The Washington Times reported that the super PAC supporting Carson has seen a surge of donations since Carson said on the NBC interview show: “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation”.
“Would we ever accept a presidential candidate who would apply the same rules, who would say the same things about Jews and Blacks?”
In the midst of Jake Tapper and Ben Carson discussing the rejection of Islam as necessary, religious extremism was mentioned. “‘If it’s a large number of people in which territory who might wish it onto glide, I certainly wouldn’t go down”.
But early last week, apparently goaded by a GOP presidential primary that’s set a cesspool-level standard for expressions of bigotry and callousness, Carson released what is undoubtedly his greatest hit: He said a Muslim American should not be president of the United States.
We would shun them aside, but we accept it against Muslims because sadly, in the Republican base, this is what is appealing to them today. “If that is correct, would you call for Huckabee to renounce the tenets of Christianity that make him not “consistent with the Constitution”?”
“We have to change the tremendous emphasis on sports and entertainment and lifestyles of the rich and famous”, Carson said.
