A real feeling of Hope & Change will pervade at tonight’s State of the Union Address. The first overriding feeling of Hope & Change that cannot be masked by the hypocrisy of the preening Obamas, by the hype of the Mainstream Media or the stridency of Nancy Pelosi.
The roughly 50 percent of Americans who stand firmly against the Fundamental Transformation of America have waited four long years for someone to tell President Barack Obama he has no right to destroy an America built by its Founding Fathers.
That ‘someone’ emerged Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast in the person of Dr. Ben Carson.
Americans thrilled to the carefully chosen patriotic words of the celebrated neuro surgeon, who not only put out the call to save America, but did it with Obama seated just a few feet away.
Obama’s peeved facial expressions and unsuppressed body language gave patriots their first soaring adrenaline boost since Election Day, 2008.
There was the antithesis of Obama standing right before Obama—and the nation. You can find Obama’s life incorporated in the book Dreams From My Father, published when he was still a government-funded community organizer, as a narrative spoon-fed to an unsuspecting America.
Dr. Ben Carson, whose life is one worth one of the most inspirational books of our lifetime, got out and proved himself before writing his first book.
Leftist critics of the America-loving neurosurgeon, who claim his speech was inappropriate and even offensive, criticize in vain because Americans can easily distinguish the difference between a usurper and the real McCoy.
And now Dr. Carson’s words to leftist critics come like healing medicine on a raw wound: “Somebody had to be courageous enough to stand up to the bullies”.
The world renowned surgeon does his talking without the crutches of Marxist dialectic or teleprompter.
“What we need to do is we need to be able to discuss intelligent ways of solving the multitude of problems that threaten to destroy our nation,” Dr. Carson told Neil Cavuto on Foxnews last night. “And there are a group of people who would like to silence everybody and have everybody go along to get along, but that’s not going to be very helpful for us in the long run.”
In an Obama society, Christians can’t speak, Constitutionalists can’t speak, Tea Party members can’t speak, returning veterans can’t speak, 1st and 2nd amendment advocates can’t speak, and now surgeons aren’t supposed to speak.
While none of the above can speak, the political elite can harangue incessantly.
“One of the things I also said during the speech, there will be some people who will say, but you’re a doctor and you’re a surgeon. You should be sticking to that,” Carson explained. “And I mentioned the fact that five physicians signed the Declaration of Independence and were involved in the framing of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and several other things.
“There’s absolutely no reason at all that physicians, scientists, shouldn’t be involved in things that affect all of us. We’re people who’ve learned how to make decisions based on facts, empirical data, rather than on ideology. And one of the geniuses—one of the real things that made us a great nation—is that we brought people from all backgrounds into the legislative process.”
Dr. Carson is here to remind us that the support for President Obama’s health care law is low within the medical community.
And Americans would be the first tell you that in an aging population the morale of the medical community matters.
The difference between Barack Obama and Ben Carson couldn’t be more stark. Obama feeds class warfare and rails about growing up in America in a single parent home, without ever bothering to thank an America that bestowed him a life of privilege. Carson was goaded on to success by a mother whose motto is: “Do your best and God will do the rest”. In his poverty-challenged youth, with a mother who steadfastly refused victim status, Carson was reading books, not writing them.
Even with all odds stacked against him, Ben Carson went on to turn poverty into celebrated success.
Meanwhile, there’s a pall cast over tonight’s State of the Union address. It’s the Hope & Change Americans see in Mrs. Sonya Carson’s little boy, Benjamin Carson.
