    Obama was unprepared, and not well qualified. However, I don't think that the answer to that is to replace him with another ill-prepared and unqualified person. Voting for Obama in 2008 because he was the "opposite of Bush" was a mistake, and voting for Carson in '16 because he's the "opposite of Obama" would also be a mistake.
    I think its a plausible point, so cannot find much to fault... Point is he could though, and while I do not at this point think it advisable, I would take him any day over the boob... Carson is a patriot and proud of it...

    Obama, on the other-hand, rarely appears particularly proud to be from here.

    Why can't he be called racist? Obama is called racist all the time, and he is half white.

    Does the slavery reference even earn an accusation of "playing the race card?"

    While I think Obama is, indeed racist, I do not hear him being called that all the time... and just because you are white has no bearing on whether someone is a racist or not...

    Show me some credible information, with trustworthy sources, wherein Dr. Carson has said something racist.

    Slavery has been committed on all races by all races...so maybe the humanity card?

    I have been told he is a Constitutional Scholar, have no independent evidence however... but Obama was what, an adjunct prof of Con Law...little help it seems to have done for him...or, sadly, for us.

    There's less evidence Obama's racist. Yet you believe he is. Odd that.

    You mean evidence like having his Justice Department drop the slam dunk case against the New Black Panthers... or how he immediately jumped on the side of Professor Henry Lewis Gates against the white police officer doing his job and fully vindicated...hmmm...oh, it certainly could not be because Prof Gates was black was it...nah, just happenstance...probably...

    Oh, then you have him getting involved in the Trayvon Martin Case, sticking his nose in, his two cents worth that just happened, somehow, to be on the side of the person that was...what race was Trayvon again, for those who may not remember....was he African American, too, was he? Why does the boob keep on sticking his nose where it doesn't belong and always end up supporting the one race over the others...

    But that would not be in the least racist... or would it?

    So, your case against Dr. Carson as a racist?

    "The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person..." --

    "It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned: (White) People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied, they were relieved -- such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn't seem angry all the time."

    "That's just how white folks will do you. It wasn't merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some. It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. It was as if whites didn't know that they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserving of their scorn."

    "It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks' greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere...That's the world! On which hope sits!"

    "I can no more disown (Jeremiah Wright) than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother - a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe."

    Or....maybe its that you are not terribly bright. Leftists always throw the 'racist' card around when lost and confused, which is always..
