Whereas Ben Carson is completely cool, calm and collected, and the coolest voice you'll ever hear.
Uh, no. You obviously didn't watch the hearing, and are just going off of a screenshot. Carson, who is supposed to know this stuff as Secretary of HUD, proved himself incompetent at his job

Brilliant!
Except not knowing these things were not part of their job description though.

We know who the REAL UN-educated are!
#1: Just because you grew up in public housing doesn't make you knowledgeable about HUD besides knowing what the name means.
#2: HUD does deal in real estate so it's comical that you would say they don't.
#3: I've been a real estate professional for the past 24 years & have done hundreds of transactions with HUD
through the FHA program or their REO properties that I've sold of theirs so I am far from being UN-educated on the subject as you claim.

Who is the one who is UN-educated now?

Most political appointees have about zero experience in the agency or department they are running. Their job is not to run the technical operations, that is the job of the career employees.

No, he is not suppose to know this stuff, that is not his job, that is the career employees job. His job is to run the department, not partake in the technical aspects of over two dozen agencies that operate under HUD.

A screenshot? I'm talking about his voice, not his appearance
Coolest voice in politics.
He couldn't be President though, because people like energetic speakers, especially during an election campaign.

The arrogance of this administration is unbelievable.



When the main page of the poster of the video has this as a description, I'm skeptical.





BREAKING: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just destroyed Republicans with a BRILLIANT argument for the Green New Deal. Turn your speakers up and watch until the end— this is incredible...




I have a hard time believing a brain surgeon is this slow. Something doesn't feel right. If this is accurate, I'll be happy to be wrong. I'm not too good to admit a mistake.


ETA: Even being questioned about furniture, his speech wasn't that slow. Maybe he didn't know what a REO was. Okay. Who the hell knows what a MEWI, or whatever it is, is?


ETA2: Not every cabinet appointment by every President has been a good one. If the results Carson delivers are acceptable, I think we should all just get a laugh from him not knowing an acronym. If he sucks at his job, fire him. Honestly, Real Estate Owned makes no sense to most people. At least most I've talked to. Owned by who? All real estate is "owned". Duh. It's an acronym that just doesn't make sense to a lot of people. Of course everyone who wants to **** on Carson has known what REO means since they were 2 years old.

Coolest voice? What does that even mean? Carson sounds as if he is fading or being erased. BOOOOORING. Comedian Lewis Black nails it...

Je couldn't hardly answer any questions even beyond REO's, he couldn't answer the most basic questions on FHA loans and other areas. He should have learned something after two years. Kallie Porter was sharp, she belongs in his position.

Oh my...a graduate of Yale , and U of M medical school, successful neurosurgeon, etc...his list of accolades goes on and on and he's an idiot savant ? It is laughable when people say things like this. He may not be qualified for his current position, but the man is brilliant. A little on the lackluster side for personality, but still brilliant.
