    Great point, except that he is a world famous neurosurgeon, credited with his pioneering work on the successful separation of twins conjoined at the head. Doesn't seem all that dumb to me. Of course, despite all his success, he is still no community organizer.

    Calling Johns Hopkins "some hospital" is like calling Harvard, some college.

    I did not say he is dumb, but what he said is very dumb.

    Off the top of my head (things that are worse):

    holocaust
    killing fields of the Khmer Rouge
    first world war
    second world war
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Not according to some people who see him as the potential new president of the United States.

    Even he would not compare the Affordable Health Care Act to slavery.

    That's an excellent point, and one that makes Carson's statement look even more absurd.

    Or maybe you need to read what he actually said before making a comment. If you are going to get your information from other sub-literate leftists then you'll never know anything.
