Has Dr. Ben Carson lost his credibility?

Dr. Ben Carson became a star in the Republican party last year at the National Prayer breakfast. He took the opportunity to criticize Obamacare and since that time he has become a vocal and paid critic of this administration, but Carson is a brilliant surgeon and some are asking will his political stance diminish his medical career? I think they are two different parts of the man and his medical contribution should not be diminished. The author of the linked story takes a different stance.

President’s Funny or Die Routine was a mistake

I’ve listened to the anchors compliment the president on his comedic timing all day, but he is not paid to be comedian. He is the President of the United States. Arguably the most powerful man in the world. So why is he sitting down doing a mock interview with one of the guys from the Hangover trilogy? Sure he is trying to reach the young and he is using non traditional media but is this how we want to see POTUS? We get he is the cool president full of swagger, but some things are frankly unpresidential and to me this was one of them. The CBS News called it a success and said the video has gotten 3 million hits, but how many of the ones that have laughed at the skit have gone on the website and signed up for Obamacare? Laughs are great, but in this case I have to ask was it worth it? What’s next? Will he be interviewed by Kermit the Frog to reach young moms? This afternoon Twitter said the right was going crazy over the clip, but I don’t think this is a right/left thing…this is simply was a bad idea and somebody in his inner circle should have seen it before we did.
