Boom! ACU announces Dr. Ben Carson will be a featured speaker at CPAC

Oddly enough, the ACU inviting “leading conservative voice” Chris Hayes to speak at CPAC failed to excite conservative activists. This is how it’s done.

“Dr. Ben Carson represents the optimism and hope of the future of the conservative movement, while at the same time he articulates the deep fiscal and social challenges that our Nation faces,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We look forward to welcoming Dr. Carson to the CPAC stage in March.”

Yes, please!

        Funny, I don’t see you defending Dr. Carson from your fellow lefty’s racist insults on this very thread…

            The comment from An Abstraction is still here, currently awaiting moderation, but still here all you have to do is click on Show comment.

            More importantly, it has been here for over 3 hours, as well as my condemnation of your silence being here for over an hour and you have yet to see fit to comment on his racist garbage.

            Your silence is equal to your consent. Not surprising though, it is par for your tolerance for leftist racism.

            Projection much? Racist rants attempting to silence any black person that dares stray from the Democrat plantation are a leftist tactic. Liberals are the only group that uses phrases like “token” and “uncle Tom” to describe minorities.

            Ted Cruz was born in Canada…

            To American citizen parents who were simply in Canada for business purposes.

            Stupid racist liberals just can’t stand minorities who dare venture off their plantation.

          • Adela Wagner

            He moved back here when he was 4. And that there clause is to prevent “foreign influence” in our oval office. I doubt a four year old garnered any type of scary Canadian ideals during his long life there.

            I find it really ironic that libs will pour so much of their shouting energy into pointing fingers at this (Cruz Birthers), when there are SO MANY QUESTIONS and NON Transparency surrounding their Pres. and his slew of papers.

            The only question I have about Cruz’s run for Pres. would be that indeed he was not born to 2 American parents. His dad did not become a citizen until 2005. My mom was from Cuba and was not a citizen yet when I was born in MD. (1958), she was studying for the exam at that time but did become a citizen in 1960. I consider myself 50% Cuban blood,100% American heart. And from what I have heard from Cruz, he loves this country 100% too and considers himself 100% American.

            someone born in another country can’t be our President

            Show me where the Constitution states that an American citizen born to American citizen parents who are in another country on business, is disqualified for the Presidency.

            Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the United States Constitution:

            Qualifications for office

            No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United
            States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be
            eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be
            eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty
            five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United
            States.

          • NachoCheese (D)

            Well looky here…seems the Congressional Research Service (containing people who are actual constitutional scholars) disagrees with the noted constitutional scholar micheal s.

            Concerning the “natural born citizen” phrase in Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the Constitution:

            A memorandum to Congress dated April 3, 2009, written by the Congressional Research Service (CRS), states:

            Considering the history of the constitutional qualifications
            provision, the common use and meaning of the phrase “natural-born subject” in England and in the Colonies in the 1700s, the clause’s apparent intent, the subsequent action of the first Congress in enacting the Naturalization Act of 1790 (expressly defining the term “natural born citizen” to include a person born abroad to parents who are United States citizens), as well as subsequent Supreme Court dicta, it appears that the most logical inferences would indicate that the phrase “natural born Citizen” would mean a person who is entitled to U.S. citizenship “at birth” or “by birth”

    • RefudiateGOPe

      C’mon people. It seems like every time someone gives a good speech, the next step is a promotion to POTUS candidate. What do you know about Carson? Have you bothered to look into his past statements? Do you know he was in favor of ObamaCare? Did you know that his disagreement about ObamaCare was only about how fast it should be legislated?

        I don’t think that’s true. Of course I have yet to hear everything but he did say that he would need a LONG time to explain what he had against Obamacare, and he also said that the AMA who approves of it only consists of 28% of doctors because they are a special interest group. That doesn’t sound like someone who is “for” Obamacare.

        You’re just going to lie now? You’re all out of shame?!

        Yep ….Carson is more like Christie than the kooks on the far right want to acknowledge, but all the same I’m happy for Carson he is from my neighborhood and would love him be the fresh voice of the Republican Party

          • rinodino

            That’s the problem with you extremist you don’t do your own research. If that’s the case you would have seen Christie coming a mile away. Carson is from a deep blue blood state.
            He has the same principles as Michael Steele and you guys ran him out the building, just watch and learn. And enjoy the ride before you turn on him lol

          • NachoCheese (D)

            That’s the problem with you extremists you don’t back up the claims you make. And when called on the lack of factual support, you resort to the tired “do your own research” rather than simply supply the facts to support your claim.

            Intellectual dishonesty pure and simple.

          “Great Britain and some other places with socialized medicine are looking at privatization because they’re running out of money. The problem with socialized medicine is that you can’t seem to keep up with costs over the course of time, so you have to ration. That’s why in a lot of places with socialized medicine, if you’re 60 years old, you may not get a kidney transplant, you may not have a hip replacement: Sorry, you’re just too old.”

          Unlike Chris Christie, Dr. Carson doesn’t sound like an Obamacare fan.

          I think Dr. Carson causes shock waves in the culture because it is sadly rare to see a man stand by his convictions.

You really are clueless.

    I do hope that when Dr. Carson lets all his views be known that conservatives will still have that respect for him. He is an independent, and I am sure he is going to have views that conservatives don’t agree with.

    • Mellow Melon

      I agree. I hate it when one of the really brilliant guys gets slammed by our base just because they don’t agree on one issue. My way of thinking is, if they’re against abortion, not rabid tax-and-spenders, and don’t want to get us into a war every single minute but will have the guts to take offensive action if necessary, they’re good enough for me.
