Dr. Carson hits a grand slam

A captivating address to the National Prayer Breakfast.

Dr. Benjamin Carson is a leading pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins, where he is a renowned authority on separating Siamese twins.  He was raised in the Detroit inner city by a single mom who worked multiple jobs to get him through school.  He is a professor of neurosurgery, oncology, and plastic surgery as well as pediatrics… and he holds over 50 honorary degrees on top of that.  He’s been the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins since he was just 33 years old.  In 2008, he received America’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, from George W. Bush.  He and his wife Candy run the Carson Scholars Fund, which hopes to “name a Carson Scholar in every school within the United States.”

He spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast today, ahead of President Obama’s address.  Carson’s 26-minute speech, played in part this afternoon by radio host Rush Limbaugh, is setting the world on fire.  If you haven’t seen or heard Dr. Carson before, and his biography makes him seem intimidating, rest assured he is anything but.  Video is the only way to properly appreciate this speech, both because the good Doctor is a very animated speaker, and because he’s standing right next to Barack Obama when he delivers it.
