Add all that together, and Dr. Carson suddenly doesn’t look like the bumbling housing secretary who doesn’t know what he’s doing. The questioning by Rep. Katie Porter, a California Democrat, about the meaning of the term R.E.O. was certainly uncomfortable for all the rest of us, but Dr. Carson never lost his composure. While were all laughing and shaking our heads at his lack of knowledge, Dr. Carson went back to his office and created a video spoof of the incident smiling with a package of Oreos. Because he knows the truth about himself. Dr. Carson is no dummy and understands exactly the kinds of policies he’s pushing and the way he is trying to transform the department for years to come. At the end of the day, he knows the joke’s on all of us.
