|Dr. Ben Carson is Moses? This was very unexpected news. Here I had spent much of the past few months believing that actor Christian Bale was the new ‘Moses’ after previewing the trailer for director Ridley Scott’s upcoming bible epic. But according to Ben Carson booster Armstrong Williams, it is the good doctor who was born to take up the mantle of the Hebrew prophet.|
|Armstrong Williams is the producer of the new documentary, “Breath of Fresh Air”, a film chronicling the life of conservative touchstone Dr. Ben Carson. Williams is a true believer .. “it’s like watching the Ten Commandments, watching Moses when he found out what God had for him”, Williams told Breitbart News referring to Carson.|
As respected as Carson is in many conservative circles, for William’s to analogize Carson to ‘Moses’ seems more than a bit exuberant. Carson has been a steady force educating the greater public as to the overt dangers of ObamaCare. He has an illustrious past as a neurosurgeon, and is the author of several faith-based books. Moses was ‘The Lawgiver’.
There is some distance between those who quietly inspire and those who lead. As Carson himself states in the film, he wishes that “someone else more qualified than himself would enter the political stage and run.”
Even if Carson corralled 75% of the ‘Huck’ vote he’d still only be an ‘uck’
If Carson runs, he will run chasing Mike Huckabee’s 2008 primary voters. Who knows, he might even earn a weekend Fox News slot out of the effort. 2016 won’t be anything like the 2012 primaries where Huck-like candidate Rick Santorum squeezed out a short-lived victory in Iowa. In 2012, the battle-cry was ABR (Anybody But Romney) as conservatives bounced from Rick Santorum to Herman Cain to Newt Gingrich in an effort to derail the establishment’s presumption of Mitt. Expect much stronger conservatives to challenge 2016’s D.C. choice than second tier candidates such as Michelle Bachmann and the other ilk that threw their hats in last go-round.
Armstrong Williams has surely produced a fine biographical documentary on Dr. Ben Carson. “Breath of Fresh Air” will likely resound approvingly with those who view it, and I encourage all with that opportunity to do so.
While 2016 will undoubtedly not usher in the ‘Age of Carson’, Ben still has a long future ahead of him. After all, Moses lived to the ripe age of 120.
