I so admire this man! Â Listen to the amazing speech he gave at the annual Prayer Breakfast:

No doubt Obama was angry, but he managed to stay relatively straight-faced through the whole thing. Â Guess he didn’t want theÂ pictorialÂ proof of his rage hitting the social media circuit.
With President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and other national leaders in attendance, Dr. Carson spoke plainly about the great challenges America faces today: â€œmoral decay and fiscal irresponsibility.â€
â€œOne of our big problems right now is our deficit,â€ Dr. Carson states. â€œOur national debt, 16 and a half trillion dollarsâ€”you think thatâ€™s not a lot of money? Counting one number per second, you know how long it would take to count to one trillionâ€”507,000 years.â€
Dr. Carson continued:
I donâ€™t like to bring up problems without coming up with solutionsâ€¦ What about our taxation system? It is so complex, there is no one who can possibly comply with every jot and tittle. That doesnâ€™t make any sense.
What we need to do is come up with something thatâ€™s simple. The inherently fair principle is proportionality: you make 10 billion dollars, you put in a billion. You make 10 dollars, you put in one. Of course, you have to get rid of the loopholes.
Some people say, â€˜Thatâ€™s not fair! Itâ€™s doesnâ€™t hurt the guy who made 10 billion dollars.â€™ Where does it say you have to hurt that guy? He just put a billion dollars into the pot!
Growing up in dire poverty, Dr. Carson tells of taking responsibility for his own decisions thanks to â€œa mother who believed in me, who would never allow herself to be a victim no matter what happenedâ€”she never made excuses, and she never accepted excuses from us.â€
Later, Dr. Carson went on Hannity to explain why he said what he did in front of the president:
