Rush Limbaugh: Ben Carson Critiqued By Talk Radio Star, 'Not Equipped' To Be President [Video]

Rush Limbaugh joined Chris Wallace on Sunday for an interview on Fox News Sunday. The topic that Rush was set to discuss was presidential candidate Ben Carson. Wallace did not waste any time by asking Limbaugh if he thought that Ben Carson could do the job if he was to be elected president. Limbaugh quickly stated "probably not."

Limbaugh commented on the type of person that Ben Carson is.

"One of the most decent human beings in this country. One of the finest men. I've met him, and the things that he's done, places he's come from, he's just one of the most decent human beings."

Limbaugh replied with his usual candor.

"Ben Carson equipped to be president? Um — probably not at this stage. But any of these Republicans running would be better than Hillary or better than anything we've got now, so on that, based on that comparison, yes. I would vote for him if it was up to him and Hillary. Absolutely, without a doubt."

Clarridge commented to the New York Times on this issue.

"Nobody has been able to sit down with him and have him get one iota of intelligent information about the Middle East.

Ben Carson has been one of the most consistently attacked GOP presidential candidates. Earlier this month, Carson had to spend time stating that comments in his book about his past violence are true. People in the media had been unable to verify those statements which forced Carson to try and convince the people that what he said was true.

The Limbaugh interview did not focus only on Ben Carson. Rush commented on the two leaders of the GOP race, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

"Donald Trump is, I think, doing a great service. He is showing that you do not have to fear attacks from the media -- Republicans do not have to fear from attacks from the media. He's showing you do not have to fear being politically correct or violating political correctness."

Do you think that Rush Limbaugh was right about Ben Carson? Who do you think will be the GOP candidate for president?
