Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year.
Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20.
Conservatives rallied around Carson last year after his remarks, made from a podium as Obama sat just feet away. In his speech, he railed against “political correctness” and offered specific ideas for health care reform.“He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of the program, I received a call from some of the prayer breakfast organizers saying that the White House was upset and requesting that I call the president and apologize for offending him. I said that I did not think that he was offended and that I didn’t think that such a call was warranted.”
apology my buttocks, You don't apology for speaking the truth, backed by his years of experience as a health care provider. When all BO. has are people that have never treated a patient making such decisions in a vacuumed bubble.
And so funny but here is a man going against BO and can't wait for the name calling, Must be a racist oreo, per libs for first having a conservative view, and for not walking on the plantation in lockstep with this unvetted, affirmative action, unpatriotic, irresponsible chicago thug political failure.
I think Obummer should apologize to all of the USA for the damage he's done. The lives lost and the misery he's brought on to millions of people.
Obama should go to the brain store and purchase a new one the one he has is defective, and maybe just maybe is he asks cordially and politely Dr Ben, may do the badly needed transplant
I have never seen people so preoccupied with protecting a president from getting his feeling hurt. Their response of "He's the president" is pure Bull shit! If Obama ever starts apologizing to the American tax payers for the endless stream of lies, empty promises and corruption in his admin. He wouldn't worry about some one telling him the truth, for a change.
I want an apology from Obama on all the stuff that he has done to us, but that's not going to happen.
Apology for what? Telling the truth? Truth hurts, doesn't it Barry!? WAIT! You wouldn't know about that, because truth is not even in your vocabulary!!
I laughed my head off at Odums reaction to that speech! Apologize? Are you kidding?????
Obama, is not man enough, nor is his character good enough to polish, Ben Carson's shoes.
He should apologize for not saying more.
I like the Doc -as to barry ,he can go to he--
The scumbag-n-chief should apologize for not letting his mother have a "CHOICE".
