    I thought it was a brilliant speech. It's just too bad that nobody in the GOP had the wherewithal to deliver that same speech about three years ago...<sigh>

    Since you asked in such a nice way, you are hereby granted one break.

    Don't make a habit of this.

    They did, and were roundly labeled as everything from racists, to obstructionists, to haters....

    I don't recall that message being articulated in quite the same way.

    More from Dr. Carson....

    DR. BENJAMIN CARSON: 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 terms of solving our problems. And somebody has to be courageous enough to actually stand up to, you know, the bullies....

    Birtherism aside, from 2008:



    But beyond that, the message was there both in 2008, and this past election, the question is are we smart enough to see it when it is presented?

    Where's Obama's give?
    Can you show me where I said it was? This fellow disagreed and me nor anyone I can recall called him a name.

    As for give, you'll find the reason liberals were upset with Obama during the first term was all the give. He's actually ahead on that pathetic count, sad as it is both ways.

    Herman Cain could've... He put the screws to Clinton back in the nineties when Clinton was trying to push universal healthcare... That's why the left (armed with Gloria Allred) did what they could to destroy him.

    Poor, poor conservatives. If only they were strong enough to handle "THE LEFT."
