Dr. Ben Carson, who skyrocketed to fame for his National Prayer Breakfast speech in front of Obama in which he lambasted the president's approach to issues and policies, responded to Obama's State of the Union address.

Carson, who has been making the rounds on television and even has some people calling for him to run for president in 2016, was invited on Fox and Friends this morning to respond to President Obama's State of the Union Address. (h/t Townhall)

The president should represent all classes of Americans, not pit one against another, Dr. Carson said:

"This whole thing about the middle class, you've got to realize you're the president of everybody: upper class, middle class, and lower class and what we need to be doing is coming up with policies that work for everyone."

Carson said Obama needs to drop his "us against them" attitude:

"When all the interlocking parts are functioning well together then we have a strong union. I can understand coming from a background of a community organizer where it's sort of 'us against them, and we've got to get ours.' That's not what we are, and that's certainly not the position I think the leader of the nation should be in."
