I will just say it up front that I am not a fan of Megyn Kelly’s “journalism.” She hypes conflict and controversializes subjects and people to benefit herself. Conflict bias and hype is one of the biggest problems in journalism today.
That said, when Kelly gets it right this writer will say so.
The idea that Ben Carson isn’t capable of stepping into a new policy area such as HUD is preposterous on it’s face. Why?
Carson was a top military ROTC student leader, he is perhaps the most innovative brain surgeon in the history of the world, he started the famed Carson Scholars Fund which helps disadvantaged children get a quality education, Hollywood did a movie about his life, in a short time he became an expert on various political philosophies and can quote and debate the most noted political philosophers with anyone. Carson has debated and lectured on economic policy, health care law, trade policy, foreign policy etc, all self taught.
Governor Huckabee rightly points out that Barack Obama had virtually no qualifying experience when he ran for president and those who pointed that out were called racists by the Democrats and their allies in the elite media.
