Carson may have absolutely no experience in the political arena but he has quickly mastered the art of the backtrack.  Grin Grin Grin



Potential 2016 presidential candidate Ben Carson apologized Wednesday for saying homosexuality was a lifestyle choice.

"I do not pretend to know how every individual came to their sexual orientation," Carson said on his Facebook page late Wednesday afternoon. "I regret that my words to express that concept were hurtful and divisive. For that I apologize unreservedly to all that were offended."

Carson, a neurosurgeon, was attempting to clarify comments he made earlier in the day to Chris Cuomo on CNN's "New Day" show.

"A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight -- and when they come out, they're gay," Carson told Cuomo. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question."

The remarks came two days after Carson filed paperwork to create a presidential exploratory committee, making him the first high-profile Republican candidate to begin raising money for a potential White House bid.

I like ben carson - disagree with him here...but I'd much rather have him than our current idiot in the WH.

The left loves to grab onto these divisive issues/opinions, that really have nothing to do with running a country....monetary policy, border security, national security, national park systems, infrastructure, military CINC...

They rather have someone who agrees with them on what their best color is, and let all else go to hell.

Yeah, it's the left's fault he said something stupid and later apologized for it. Good call.

When making a good point, the right tends to walk away if they can't counter it.

you are right, he is not an idiot....he is a radical left wing person, who has been caught lying repeatedly, openly ignored enforcing laws, and whose close lifelong friends include people like frank marshall davis, bill ayers, rev wright and al Sharpton.

If you love the United States as founded, a constitutional republic, he has been the worse thing to support that proposition since our country's inception.
