Renowned neurosurgeon Ben Carson inched closer to declaring a 2016 run for the White House on Thursday, saying that while he never expected to seek public office, “the good Lord had a different plan for me.”

Asked by Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV about several grass-roots campaigns to draft him for a presidential run on the Republican ticket, Carson said:

“As far as my running for public office, that was never my intention. I thought when I retired I was going to play golf and learn how to play an organ.

“But, obviously, the good Lord had a different plan for me. I will obviously listen, but that is not what I really had intended to do.”

    Carson will not get any votes, he is being used for the Republicans agenda. Look how Michael Steel was used, the Republicans couldn’t wait to get rid of him.

    I am so excited with the hope that Dr Ben Carson will run for our next president. We need a man who is full of integrity, Godly wisdom, honesty and trusting. A president who would keep his word and does what he says and is man enough to admit when he has made a mistake, unlike our current president. RUN BEN, RUN!!!

  3. The man speaks the truth, sorry it doesn’t fit with your warped view of reality. All you Peeps see is Republican = No free handouts.

    He wont get the white vote either. He ( like a few others) have mistaken their hate for Obama into actually believing that they like him. It would be funny, if it werent so tragic. You would think with all of his so called intellectual capacity he would know this already. But he wouldnt be the first person drunken with the mistaken belief that he is beyond this. As long as he comes on Faux news and spews his self hatred to the Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh crowd he is fine. He will ifnd out soon though that once they no longer have any use for him, they will turn him nito a Lamppost for the fonrt yard.
