As Democrats still reel from the beating they took in the midterm elections, a conservative candidate announcing they’re running for the presidency in 2016 seems like the perfect way to kick the left while they’re down.
Being the first candidate to officially announce a bid for the Republican ticket and the first to announce candidacy on either the left or right, we are proud to report that Dr. Ben Carson has stepped into the ring.
Carson has debated for some time whether or not he will run for president, but the retired pediatric neurosurgeon will declare his opening bid for the Republican nomination in a 40-minute-long ad this weekend, ABC News reports.
The documentary titled “A Breath of Fresh Air: A New Prescription for America” will air in 22 states and Washington, DC. The paid video will detail some of his biography and family life, including his rise from being born to a single mother with a poor childhood in Detroit to director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins for almost 40 years, known for his work separating conjoined twins, to potential 2016 presidential candidate.
Carson first became a conservative star when last year he created a buzz at the National Prayer Breakfast when in front of an audience that included President Obama and Vice President Biden he spoke out about political correctness, health care and taxes.
Carson is also known for his amplified position against Obamacare, speaking from a medical standpoint like fellow conservative Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).
Carson has expressed his humble disinterest for presidency, saying, “No, I don’t want to be president. Why would any sane person want to do that?” However, he considered the opportunity when he saw widespread support. “I think I have to consider that, with so many clamoring for me to do it.”
Liberals claim that Republicans who refused to vote for Obama or back his policies are racist, but they relish calling black conservatives vulgar slurs such as “Uncle Toms.”
Conservatives optimistically await the day when candidates “will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
