The transcript of Dr. Benjamin Carson – National Prayer Breakfast (Transcript) -
February 7, 2013
[Which took me 30 seconds to find on Google!]
The offending speech, IMO
, was ...
We need doctors, we needs scientists, engineers. We need all those people involved in government, not just lawyers…I don’t have anything
against lawyers, but you know, here’s the thing about lawyers…I’m sorry, but I got to be truthful…got to be truthful – what do lawyers learn
in law school? To win, by hook or by crook. You gotta win, so you got all these Democrat lawyers, and you got all these Republican lawyers and
their sides want to win. We need to get rid of that. What we need to start thinking about is, how do we solve problems?
[Which took me 3 minutes of reading to find and clearly identify as the most likely 'offending' speech to Mr B.Obama!]
Clearly this part of Dr Carson's speech directly
attacks Mr B.Obama's status as a constitutional lawyer!
Come on ATS ... 4 pages in and you haven't dug in properly!
DIG DEEPER OK! Don't just throw mud!
Does anybody disagree that the section of the transcript I have posted is the 'offending' speech
Should Dr Carson have to apologize for those exact words he used?
Regardless of yes or no, please explain WHY?
I personally do not see any need for Dr Carson to apologize and the reason is he made a valid point about LAWYERS and their moral objectivity, which
he compared to Dr's moral objectivity in the previous sentence to his speech ...
Now some people say, ahhh, you’re over blowing it, things aren’t that bad, and you’re a doctor, a neurosurgeon. Why are you concerned about
these things? Got news for you. FIVE doctors signed the Declaration of Independence. Doctors were involved in the framing of the Constitution, the
Bill of Rights, in a whole bunch of things. It’s only been since recent decades that we’ve extracted ourselves, which I think is a big mistake.
Now I do NOT know the accuracy of Dr Carson's comments visavis the number of Drs to Lawyers who signed the Declaration of Independence, and I leave
such ground to be covered by other ATS members!
