Ben Carson NH 5-10-15 1st stop Manchester

Yes­ter­day after my wife went to work I and about 350 peo­ple (I counted 333) spent a mother’s day after­noon with Ben Car­son at Man­ches­ter Com­mu­nity Col­lege as he intro­duced him­self, his val­ues and his thoughts on America’s future to them.KODAK Digital Still Camera

As it was mother’s day he spent a lot of time on his mother & child­hood years & col­lege years (How many peo­ple have Anna Freud as one of their Psy­chol­ogy instructors )

He talked about his faith (“You don’t need a PhD to talk to God just faith”) The Re-​election of Barack Obama (“It was like being slapped in the face with a fish, it woke peo­ple up”) On the nature of Amer­ica (“Our nation was designed in such a way that the Peo­ple would be at the Pin­na­cle”) (“The Gov­ern­ment is there to facil­i­tate Life Lib­erty & Hap­pi­ness not gov­ern every aspect of our lives”) But his main theme was tak­ing per­sonal responsibility

(You’ll find the seg­ments of his speech at DaTechGuy’s Youtube Chan­nel)

He Took sev­eral ques­tions from the Audi­ence on Med­ical sav­ings accounts

On the Military

On Scrip­ture & the 2nd Amend­ment (two ques­tions here)

at the end the event I inter­viewed peo­ple in line for a pic­ture of him. Rachel & Jacob

Frank

Dave

And Dan

When every­one who wanted a pic­ture had a chance to get one He con­sented to a short inter­view by me

Between me & the crowd He answered half as many ques­tion as Hillary Clin­ton has in her entire campaign

the fact he was not a pol and did not seem to be stage man­aged appealed to the crowd. This struck me as one of the least rehearsed Polit­i­cal events I ever cov­ered, at least it would be until I saw him later that day in Hol­lis but that’s a later post.

Yesterday after my wife went to work I and about 350 people (I counted 333)  spent a mother’s day afternoon with Ben Carson at Manchester Community College as he introduced himself, his values and his thoughts on  America’s future to them.KODAK Digital Still Camera

As it was mother’s day he spent a lot of time on his mother & childhood years & college years (How many people have Anna Freud as one of their Psychology instructors )

He talked about his faith (“You don’t need a PhD to talk to God just faith”) The Re-election of Barack Obama (“It was like being slapped in the face with a fish, it woke people up”) On the nature of America (“Our nation was designed in such a way that the People would be at the Pinnacle”) (“The Government is there to facilitate Life Liberty & Happiness not govern every aspect of our lives”) But his main theme was taking personal responsibility

(You’ll find the segments of his speech at DaTechGuy’s Youtube Channel)

He Took several questions from the Audience on Medical savings accounts

On the Military

On Scripture & the 2nd Amendment (two questions here)

at the end the event I interviewed people in line for a picture of him. Rachel & Jacob
