Ben Carson, Hopkins Neurosurgeon, Imagines Himself in the White House

“Let’s say you just magically put me into the White House.” That’s the scenario the soon-to-retire Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson asked the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference to entertain for a moment — and according to the Sun, it brought “the crowd to its feet.” The Obamacare-hating, flat-taxing-loving, conjoined-twin-separating doctor has recently become a favorite among Republicans for his commitment conservatism and his inspiring life story. (He grew up poor in Detroit, and went on to become, well, a Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon.)

He was ostensibly kidding about the “White House” reference, but for someone who holds no elected office, he did surprisingly well in a CPAC straw poll, tying for seventh place with 4 percent of the vote. And his name was heard from the crowd while another speaker was rattling names of potential 2016 presidential contenders.

So now we’ve got O’Malley, Carson… Who else from Maryland wants to take a shot at the presidency?

    I think it’s weird that he’s a doctor who doesn’t believe in evolution. Just sayin’.

    Dr Ben Carson is the real deal — he walks the walk and talks the talk. He is the embodiment of the American dream, and an inspiration to anyone who spends time with him. I imagine he’s probably too smart to run for office, especially in Maryland, but I would sure vote for him.
