Dr. Ben Carson offers solutions to leaders: ‘Stop being so full of yourselves’

Neurosurgeon, author and outspoken Obama administration critic Dr. Ben Carson appeared on “America’s News Headquarters” Saturday to discuss a variety of issues facing America.

“There’s a large number of frustrated people out there that just don’t feel like they’re being represented,” Carson said in answer to why his message has been resounding with Americans across the country.

Fox News host Uma Pemmaraju showed clips of Carson speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast, where his comments on and solutions to fix health care earned him a national following and calls for him to run for office.

“One of the things people love about you is that you don’t just complain. You’re offering solutions for the nation,” Pemmaraju told Carson.

Carson discussed how political correctness stifles conversation he believes is needed to move the country forward. “I think the founders of our nation would roll over in their grave if they could see what we have done through the backdoor – suppressing people,” he said.

Carson concluded with a message to political leaders in Washington.

“Just wake up a little bit, stop being so full of yourselves, listen to the people,” he said. “Let’s solve our problems.”

    The more I learn about this man, the more I like him and hope that his common sense approach takes hold with many Americans.

    Dr. Carson, I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I feel for "finally" having a voice. You are exactly what we need, thank you so much for your integrity, courage and boldness. May Our Lord continue to provide platforms for you to speak and open doors that no man can shut!

    Bravo again to Dr. Carson. So nice to hear someone with common sense and reasonable ideas for positive change. We need more influential Americans like him .

    And Janeen Capizola, wow! I forgot what it was like to watch a professional, un biased journalist asking poignant questions. This was how news used to be.

    Ms. Capizola you made not only myself, but the memories of Edward R Morrow and Walter Cronkite proud. It was refreshing to listen to a reporter conduct an interview without the sound of those two legends spinning in their graves.

    While fox news has been the only major American Network worth listening to far too many of the personalities we see there are more concerned with promoting their books or serving their vanity.

    We don't watch the news to see if you still look young and pretty. We don't watch the news as prerequisite to a trip to the bookstore. We watch the news for the facts.

    Now more than ever Americans need to know what is going on.

    He hit the nail on the head! These politicians and bureaucrats ARE full of themselves!In a few short sentences he identifies the problems, offers simple easy to understand solutions and speaks to the American people. Politicians create or compound problems, offer no solutions and ONLY speak to and for themselves. He stands out like an Einstein who wandered into a town square during their annual village idiot convention.

    Another great interview with Dr. Carson.

    Watched "Gifted Hands, the Ben Carson Story" last night and I am SOLD. This man is the real deal. He has conquered adversity, he is a self made man and he is a hero, inspiration and breath of fresh air….Please, Lord, move this man to run for national office…We need him.


    From his lips to God's ear – AND OURS!
