WHITE HOUSE HINT? Dr. Carson Critical of Obama in CPAC Speech
Dr. Ben Carson — who during his speech at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast criticized some of President Obama’s economic policies — hinted Saturday that he might be interested in a 2016 presidential run.
Speaking at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference, Carson resumed his sharp critique of Washington and the rest of the United States, which included his vision on how to fix the country’s problems.
“Let’s say you magically put me in the White House,” Carson, a Johns Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon, said to a loud applause.
The remark was a bit unexpected, considering Carson has said his prayer breakfast speech — critical of higher taxes and Obama’s new health-care law — was to “serve God” and was not political.
