By Susan Duclos

After Dr. Ben Carson ripped Obama policies, including his class warfare rhetoric, at the National Prayer Breakfast,with Barack Obama sitting just seats away, Democratic politicians and liberal Obamabots starting heaping criticisms on him.

Carson revealed his reasoning on Hannity and now goes on to appear on shows explaining why he has come out publicly on Obama's policies. (Video and quotes shown here)

On Monday, he appeared on Fox News’ “Your World” with Neil Cavuto" to respond to those Obamabots, pointing out "there are a group of people who would like to silence everybody" and continues on to say "Somebody has to be courageous enough to stand up to the bullies." (Via The Blaze)

When asked why he took it upon himself to go “beyond medical policy” and address issues like tax policy, Carson went back to the Declaration of Independence to make his point.

“One of the things I also said during the speech, there will be some people who will say, but you’re a doctor and you’re a surgeon. You should be sticking to that,” Carson explained. “And I mentioned the fact that five physicians signed the Declaration of Independence and were involved in the framing of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and several other things.”

He continued: “There’s absolutely no reason at all that physicians, scientists, shouldn’t be involved in things that affect all of us. We’re people who’ve learned how to make decisions based on facts, empirical data, rather than on ideology. And one of the geniuses — one of the real things that made us a great nation — is that we brought people from all backgrounds into the legislative process.”
