Conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh ripped into a CNN analyst he referred to as an "infobabe" Tuesday for showing what he sees as outright disrespect for retired neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate, Ben Carson, for calling the renowned doctor a lower-tier candidate who will "end up looking presidential" because of real estate mogul Donald Trump's entry into the 2016 presidential race.
"I heard before Trump made his announcement this morning — I saw this on CNN some infobabe, I don't remember who, was lamenting Trump getting in the race, is a clown. And so, the real problem with Trump getting in is he's going to make the Republican lower tier look good. And she cited Dr. Ben Carson as an example and how unfortunate that is, that Ben Carson is gonna end up looking presidential because Trump getting in is a clown," said Limbaugh on his radio show before launching into a staunch defense of Carson as a person and presidential candidate.
"Dr. Benjamin Carson is one of the finest, most accomplished human beings on this planet who has done more for people than most people in politics will ever do. And he's done it personally, not with other people's money," said Limbaugh. more >>

Francis steps on stage and does something that completely wowed the crowd. The song choice is a hard one, but his angelic voice was actually perfect for this audition.
His angelic voice works great with the classic "I'll Be There." He hits high notes like a professional and sings his song in his own unique way. God has given him a gift and he is certainly using it to shine like a star on stage. This little boy gives all the judges the chills and has one even look up and say "Hallelujah." Francis is a little kid that packs a big voice meant to be heard by the world. When he gets older, he will fulfill all his dreams as a singer.
