Dr. Ben Carson Drops Medicine, Enters Political Arena



Renowned brain surgeon, Dr. Ben Carson has decided to put down his surgical scalpel and pursue a career in politics. Carson has long been a sought-after public speaker, but it wasn’t until he delivered the keynote address at the 61st annual National Prayer Breakfast, where he euthanized President Obama’s liberal agenda, have the calls for him to run for public been made.

 During his appearance on Fox Business’ Stu Varney show, Carson confirmed that he conducted his last surgical case, and said his farewells to his colleagues.

 If we don’t have the right environment, a sick environment doesn’t help the organism-Dr. Ben Carson

 In answering Varney’s question, as to what his role in politics was going to be, Carson said that he was going to “spend a lot of time talking to political and non political groups about the United States being for the people,” and healthcare reform.

 It only be a matter of time until Carson is recruited to run for federal office. Question is, has he already decided to run for office, and is waiting to make an announcement down the road?

    This is good news but he has to do it unafraid and without apologies.

    • http://aol Gidget

      I am sure he will not be apologizing like what we have now running to all the countries and apologizing for us Americans.

  • MarineCorpsVet

    That’s exactly why he’s a champion.

    A wonderful man and a wonderful story but all that can’t change the free loading 47percent.

    A monumental shame that the powers that be have already marginalized Dr. Carson as they did Dr. Paul.

    • Cat

      I am hoping that he can educate some of them … let’s have his back and pray.

  • Perseids

    This can only give rise to hope in the future.
    We need all the fearless warriors we can get.

  • lowie

    In his book, America the Beautiful, Dr. Carson presents his views on how America has gotten into the mess it finds itself. He gives common sense solutions to every problem we face as a nation and he would be welcomed into the political arena. He is a person with high standards and was able to rise to success in America from poverty. It is a great American story and should be read by every child that wants to experience the American dream.

  • C Solis

    Super, we need more ‘intelligent’ men like Ben Carson, those who actually think, running this country. Not those who know how to play politics for their own benefit.

  • Maggie

    What an oddly worded headline. This man did not “drop medicine” he retired after serving the medical community with great distinction for over 30 years. It sounds like he walked away in disgust or because he wasn’t making enough money or because he was forced out.

    • http://aol Gidget

      I totally agree with you. When Dr. Bennjamin Carson spoke he said he was retiring in June. What this article started out with Carlson dropping his medical tools really bothered me.

  • Carlos

    While Dr. Ben may not affect the lazy 47% scum, he will certainly motivate some of imbecile morons of the 53% who chose to stay home to “teach the GOP a lesson” or some other infantile act of destructive self righteousness. To these fools I ask, how’s that lesson working out for ya?

  • Carolyn Jones

    So Happy to see this ..He seems like a Great man with a good work Ethic and with a great morals , Character and Integrity …. We need more of this in the political arena…

  • Nancy Celano

    He sounds great so far. Speaks well with great intelligence.

  • Nena

    Dr. Carson has my vote for whatever he decides to run for. If he maintains his core values, he is an answer to prayer for God to help us save America!

  • http://aol Gidget

    I first saw Dr, Benjamin Carson when he spoke at the prayer meeting. He is a very articulate man who does not raise his voice or point his finger at the American people. I hope he runs for office because I will definitely support him.

  • Chris

    I have the highest regard for Dr. Johnson. What a quality individual!

  • Florida Girl7

    Dr Carson is all quality. I am proud to be in the same party that he is. God Bless him

    The media and liberal politics will do,
    1. He cheated on his taxes
    2. In bed with pharmaceutical companies
    3. Backed by the “large” company backed Tea party group
    4. He groped/sexual abused a patient that was too afraid to come forward sooner
    5. He did unnecessary surgeries
    6. He padded his bills
    7. He cheated the insurance companies
    8. He cheated on his wife
    9. He has an child he never paid childsupport.
    10. He is not black enough because he is against Obama and not democrat.
    11. He is not a Christian

    There will be something put out in the media that will take the center stage –keeping the facts of political points from being the main issue and the silly voters will allow the media to lie and demand he proves his innocents when he is not guilty in the first place.

    Even if he does prove he is innocent the media will not cover the facts but continue to state the lie and the people will believe it… just like with Cain and Rich Dud.

  • Joe J

    If Dr Carson can do half as much with the office of the president as he did with his medical career we will all be better off! Go get em Doc!!!!!!!

  • karen

    Dr Ben Carson; head and shoulders above much of the scum residing in office. He is a man of high moral character, ethics and integrity, besides being brilliant. No one gave him a handout ( not even SugarDaddy Government), he worked hard to attain all that he has. Any thinking person should be proud and honored to have a respected person such as Dr. Carson, holding a political position. Beware Dr.Ben… as you know, the left will be coming at you with slings and arrows and bring race into it, acting like playground bullies with name-calling. Put on the armor of Christ and defend! You have nothing to hide against these imbeciles.

  • Sandi Trusso

    I love both of them, but my choices would be: Allen West for President, and Dr. Carson to replace a Democrat Congressman or Senator!

  • G Speed

    this will only work if he runs as a Dem and then turncoats like a specter or a CC—I’d love to see a true Dino in the senate or the house.

  • corey

    Thank god! I’ve been saying for a while now that it will take black leaders to get us out of the mess of Obama. I fear most they will take this man out to secure their power. These people are not like any in our history and they won’t play games with a big threat like this. I hope I am wrong..



  • ConservativeHope

    He needs to serve as a governor or congressman or senator first to prove he won’t fall captive to the career politicians, bureaucrats, & special interests & their corrupting influence which infest the system.
    He seems a gifted executive so governor makes sense & if interested he could seek the presidency from there.
    The US Senate desperately needs conservative help so that would be good if he could win & again is a good platform to higher office.
    We also need help in the US House but no one wins the presidency directly from there. (Maybe House 2014, VP 2016, Pres. 2020 or 2024.)
    Right now US Senator Ted Cruz is earning the right to lead conservatives for the White House in 2016.

  • DoubleC

    Maybe MSNBC could hire him…it might save their brand. People might actually tune in and listen to him, not the people that need to hear him, mind you. But, hey, ratings are ratings. Dr. Carson’s intelligence level is so far above the average welfare recipient, I doubt they would know what he’s talking about anyway….It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
