CPAC 2013 invites Dr. Ben Carson Joe Scarborough Hardest Hit

Just got the fol­low­ing e-​mail from CPAC

The Amer­i­can Con­ser­v­a­tive Union (ACU) today announced that Dr. Ben Car­son will be a fea­tured speaker at CPAC 2013 — the 40th annual Con­ser­v­a­tive Polit­i­cal Action Con­fer­ence. America’s largest gath­er­ing of con­ser­v­a­tive lead­ers and activists will be held Thurs­day, March 14 – Sat­ur­day, March 162013.

For the few of you who Don’t know who Ben Car­son is:

Dr. Ben Car­son rep­re­sents the opti­mism and hope of the future of the con­ser­v­a­tive move­ment, while at the same time he artic­u­lates the deep fis­cal and social chal­lenges that our Nation faces,” said ACU Chair­man Al Car­de­nas. “We look for­ward to wel­com­ing Dr. Car­son to the CPAC stage in March.”

Dr. Ben­jamin Car­son is the Direc­tor of Pedi­atric Neu­ro­surgery at Johns Hop­kins School of Med­i­cine. An inter­na­tion­ally renowned physi­cian, Dr. Car­son has authored over 100 neu­ro­sur­gi­cal pub­li­ca­tions, along with five best-​selling books, includ­ing the New York Times best­seller, Amer­ica the Beau­ti­ful, and has been awarded 60 hon­orary doc­tor­ate degrees and dozens of national merit cita­tions. He is a recip­i­ent of the Pres­i­den­tial Medal of Free­dom and deliv­ered the keynote address at the 2013 National Prayer Break­fast ear­lier this month.

Yeah this sounds just like a tac­tic. Just like a bunch of peo­ple who are try­ing to dis­tract from the fact they as Joe Scar­bor­ough says: “care about hate, resent­ment

Because noth­ing says “hate and resent­ment” like a hav­ing a Pres­i­den­tial Medial of Free­dom win­ner of color speak to CPAC.

Any­one want to make book on how long it takes for Dr. Car­son to be vil­i­fied as an “Uncle Tom” online? I doubt it will take more than an hour or two.

Update: I’ll trade Ben Car­son for S.E. Cupp any day

Update 2: I gave a call to CPAC after receiv­ing the email. The per­son I spoke to could not nail down the speak­ing day and time of Dr. Car­son nor nail down when the invite was sent. I’ll fol­low up on this dur­ing the day.

Update 3: Heard back from Laura Rigas from CPAC (the woman whose name was on the press release) She emailed that while she could not get into details on when the invi­ta­tion was sent or received she did say it was “in the works for some time”. He will be speak­ing Sat­ur­day in the AM (mean­ing I might be able to catch him before going on the air). As for the reac­tion she wrote: “we expect it to be pos­i­tive” but of course the announce­ment just hit an hour or so before my call & e-​mail. How­ever the Twit­ter reac­tions have been positive.

Inter­est­ingly enough while MSNBC has time to hit CPAC about Chris Christie live dur­ing their 11 AM hour they didn’t have time to men­tion Dr. Carson’s inclu­sion. I won­der why?

Update 4:
Wel­come vis­i­tors from Helen’s page,

Just got the following e-mail from CPAC

The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced that Dr. Ben Carson will be a featured speaker at CPAC 2013 — the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, March 14 – Saturday, March 16, 2013.

For the few of you who Don’t know who Ben Carson is:

“Dr. Ben Carson represents the optimism and hope of the future of the conservative movement, while at the same time he articulates the deep fiscal and social challenges that our Nation faces,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We look forward to welcoming Dr. Carson to the CPAC stage in March.”

Dr. Benjamin Carson is the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. An internationally renowned physician, Dr. Carson has authored over 100 neurosurgical publications, along with five best-selling books, including the New York Times bestseller, America the Beautiful, and has been awarded 60 honorary doctorate degrees and dozens of national merit citations. He is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and delivered the keynote address at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month.

Yeah this sounds just like a tactic. Just like a bunch of people who are trying to distract from the fact they as Joe Scarborough says: “care about hate, resentment

Because nothing says “hate and resentment” like a having a Presidential Medial of Freedom winner of color speak to CPAC.

Anyone want to make book on how long it takes for Dr. Carson to be vilified as an “Uncle Tom” online? I doubt it will take more than an hour or two.

Update: I’ll trade Ben Carson for S.E. Cupp any day

Update 2: I gave a call to CPAC after receiving the email. The person I spoke to could not nail down the speaking day and time of Dr. Carson nor nail down when the invite was sent. I’ll follow up on this during the day.

Update 3: Heard back from Laura Rigas from CPAC (the woman whose name was on the press release) She emailed that while she could not get into details on when the invitation was sent or received she did say it was “in the works for some time”. He will be speaking Saturday in the AM (meaning I might be able to catch him before going on the air). As for the reaction she wrote: “we expect it to be positive” but of course the announcement just hit an hour or so before my call & e-mail. However the Twitter reactions have been positive.

Interestingly enough while MSNBC has time to hit CPAC about Chris Christie live during their 11 AM hour they didn’t have time to mention Dr. Carson’s inclusion. I wonder why?
