    Re: Dr. Benjamin Carson

    When I seen this on Bible I did not think a thing about it. Then I heard while watching Fox the libs were all worked up because someone compared Obama to satan, I just figured it was more whacky partiasn BS. But that really does look like Obama.

    Re: Dr. Benjamin Carson

    He's obviously a good surgeon. I don't know whether or not he's a good person. He certainly holds some not-so-good beliefs.

    To be honest, I don't understand what all the fuss is about. He seems like just another garden variety Republican to me.

    I'm not talking about damaging his reputation as a quality surgeon, obviously.

    Why certainly not!

    He is the guy that equated homosexuals with pedophiles and sheep rapers, right? Yea, he's great.

    The fuss is about his race. As usual, when a black person becomes vocally conservative or critical of liberalism, many conservatives freak out and decide that 1) This person is a threat to liberals just because of their race, and 2) They will help dispel the stereotype of the "racist conservative". This is what happened with Carson.

    That said, I find that line of logic so laughably ridiculous and it demonstrates what so many conservatives continually miss about the role that race plays in politics. A lot of them seem to think that black liberals vote exclusively because of skin color and that, by trotting out black conservatives, they will attract black liberals. What they don't realize is 1) Black liberals vote Democrat because of POLICIES, so if a black conservative is saying what every other conservative is saying, black liberals aren't going anywhere, and 2) It's insulting to imply that black liberals are so stupid and shallow that they would reconsider conservatism just because someone with the same skin color says they should.

    It is really funny to see this. How many times have conservatives tried to explain that disagreeing with a black person's politics is actually not racism? There are some liberals, however, that have extra special disdain for black (or really, any minority) conservatives. Would you agree with me that if any part of the criticism is due to a person's race, that's bigotry?

    If I'm going to support Dr. Carson for POTUS, I'm not going to act like a liberal and say " if you disagree then your racist", which is crap you included in the answer.
    Dude, there's a whole thread full of Cons playing the race card over this very issue. Yes, they are accusing people of being racists because they don't think Carson is qualified for President.

    Just because you're not that stupid doesn't mean others aren't, and it proves that you don't have to be a Lib to play the race card.

    Which is also what I don't understand. They say it has nothing to do with his race, but it's not like he says anything that white Republicans don't say all the time. But for some reason, he's special?
