New Surgeon General Approved Despite Opposition

153

In finding a new man for the role of Surgeon General of the United States, President Obama had his pick of almost anyone. Instead of finding someone with an established and distinguished background in medical leadership, though, he chose Dr. Vivek Murthy. Dr. Murthy’s qualifications for the position are scarce – at the age of 37, he has neither the clinical nor administrative experience that would recommend him for office – but it’s his political leanings that have many concerned.

Since 2008, Dr. Murthy’s objectives have become increasingly liberal. He formed a group called Doctors for America (created as Doctors for Obama) which lobbied hard for the passage of the Affordable Care Act. It hasn’t escaped notice that his nomination for the nation’s highest medical office seems like political payback for that early support.

Still, that kind of favoritism is not exactly a new phenomenon for Washington. By itself, it would hardly constitute a reason for the Senate to oppose his confirmation. But Dr. Murthy’s insistence on classifying guns as an American public health threat has many concerned about what his tenure as surgeon general will entail. Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming was among those speaking out against his confirmation, saying, “Americans don’t want a surgeon general who might use this position of trust to promote his own personal campaign against the Second Amendment of the Constitution.”

Barrasso’s concerns are echoed by the National Rifle Association. Spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said, “America’s next surgeon general should not be a political operative whose professional inexperience has been a source of bipartisan concern.”

The “bipartisan concern” he speaks of is not an NRA fiction. Democrat Senator Joe Manchin left the specific topic of guns out of his statement of opposition, but he still thought Dr. Murthy’s history of political activism made him a poor fit for the role of surgeon general. He expressed strong doubts as to whether or not the doctor would be able to “separate his political beliefs from his public health views.”

Most troubling to Second Amendment advocates are Murthy’s stances when it comes to policy. He was supportive of the gun restrictions Obama was attempting to push through after the Newtown shooting, and he even went further than that, insisting that the country needed mandatory licensing and training laws in place. He has also spoken out in favor of mandatory waiting periods and rationing laws that would limit the amount of ammunition a customer can purchase.

Surrounded by all of this controversy, Dr. Murthy has assured the public that he will not campaign for gun control while in the position. But such assurances are hardly worth the expenditure of air it took to make them, considering this administration’s record of lies. While the surgeon general has no specific power to set health policy in the United States, he can wield a mighty effective bully stick if he so chooses. The last thing we need right now is a surgeon general muddying the Second Amendment waters with self-righteous, liberal activism.

In the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, Dr. Murthy took his thoughts to Twitter: “NRA press conference disappointing but predictable – blame everything in the world except guns for the Newtown tragedy. #wakeup,” he wrote.

Murthy’s comment is equally disappointing but predictable. In his tweet, in his advocacy, and in his career, he has distinguished himself as the perfect Obama Democrat – blame everything in the world except for the person responsible. Can’t wait to see how that philosophy informs his position on the real medical crises facing the U.S.

    Why was he confirmed and who confirmed him?

    1. ward says

      king bo is the only one in the category of deceit that would pick this type of libtard for failure … !

      1. Einar_Petersen says

        WRONG! The Idiots that voted for his confirmation are one in the same as Obozo.

        1. ward says

          Right he only surrounds himself with idiots & suck up cronies of deceit & lies that is his prerequisite..!

        2. Deborah G says

          No you are wrong we still have a Democrat Congress. he is rushing to get appointments in before he has a battle in January

          1. Einar_Petersen says

            But it was the needed 51st Vote that put in another Anti-American appointee.

          2. Deborah G says

            Illinois is never to be trusted. They are always the rogues

    2. Michael Dennewitz says

      Well, the great emperor of the United States of Isloom confirmed him bud!! You see? He’s building his empire, one yoyo at a time. WOE BE UNTO THIS SCREWED UP AND FORGOTTEN COUNTRY!!

      1. mallen11 says

        Right, only God is our hope.

        1. sandraleesmith46 says

          Yes, and He IS watching, working His plan too. These may think they’re winning, in control, for now, but I believe the wake-up call will be a bit abrupt, and in the foreseeable future, even for many of us who are seniorsseniors now. They’ll have all eternity to ponder the many errors of their ways.

          1. mallen11 says

            Yes, but it still bothers me that soooooooo many people are headed the wrong way. I doubt that the leadership in WDC will ever see the error of their ways. God uses them to discipline our Nation but when enough people are willing to turn back to Him then He will heal this land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

        2. leewacker says

          HE helps those who HELP THEMSELVES!
          No, it will be WE THE PEOPLE who will show Obama and his minions to the jump-off line—which is coming very fast!

          1. mallen11 says

            I am sure you mean well but God does NOT help those who help themselves. That is not in the Bible. Let the Bible speak…
            Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him; And He will make your paths straight.
            Isaiah 40:31 Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.
            Dt 31:6 Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”
            Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
            Psalm 55:22 Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
            II Tim 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and discipline.
            Ps 37:25 I have been young and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his descendants begging bread.
            I Sam 17:47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saves not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’s…, and he will give you into our hands.
            Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him.
            Isaiah 40:29 He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power.
            Jeremiah 17:5 -Thus says the LORD, “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength, and whose heart turns away from the LORD
            Ps 75:5-7 Do not lift up your horn on high; do not speak with insolent pride. For not from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert comes exaltation; But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another.

    3. Deborah G says

      Dems Still a majority in the Senate. That’s why he is trying to fill all the positions before January where he wouldn’t have the chance of a canary in a vcoal mine.

    4. 7papa7 says

      He was confirmed by a senate who is looking at the world through a glass naval. He got confirmed by a traitor republican. Because of that traitor he got 51 votes for confirmation. I hope the people of IL remember this in 2016 when he is up for reelection.

      1. emag says

        We all should know who this traitor is. He needs to be exposed.

        1. 7papa7 says

          He has been exposed it just that DC doesn’t have the guts to do anything about it making them complicit in his actions and should also be replcaed.

          1. sandraleesmith46 says

            They became complicit when they allowed the unetted illegal alien to take a seat in the SenateSenate, and know that. The House joined in when they allowed him into the WH.

          2. 7papa7 says

            I sure can’t argue when your right

        2. RedderThanMost2014 says

          Senator Mark Kirk, R-IL was the only Republican to vote in favor of his nomination.

          1. Deborah G says

            And that got him in . Remember that

          2. emag says

            Look at him standing there with his arm crossed, that arrogant look on his face. Who does he remind you of?

          3. Einar_Petersen says

            That was the needed 51st Vote to put in another Anti-American appointee.

          4. emag says

            Ah, Chitcago, I am sure.

      2. A Lee Lowe says

        Anyone know who republican area 51 is?

        1. 7papa7 says

          Mark Kirk of IL

    5. william couch says

      The BRAIN DEAD CONGRESS!!!! AND MONEY!!!!!

    6. wapitihunter says

      Harry Reid and his looser crony Senators did this very recently. He did it post Boehner Bill. He wanted to give the “Prez” a present before he looses power and their Gestapo looses control.

    7. sandraleesmith46 says

      Harry Reid’s SENATE, of course. They do all appointees from the Oval Office. They stuck usvwith Kagan and Sotomayer too, not to mention a raft of Federal judges, all of like mind!

    8. Laddyboy says

      All of the names on the “confirmation” need to be made public so We The People know who to vote OUT of Office.

      1. Jimmy King says

        You the people are too lazy to get off your asses

        1. Laddyboy says

          Jimmy King: See my other post in responce to your ranting.

    9. Alan C Rohner says

      Exactly; those were the 2 questions that came to mind.

  2. graybuffalo says

    Is he a Muslim?

    1. ward says

      Sure as hell appears as a muslim & appointed by bo would probably be of the brotherhood … ! bo has to go…! He has done nothing for the benefit of the U.S. in 6 years of his deceitful regime …!

    2. Michael Dennewitz says

      YES! He’s definitely a mooselum. One more damned prayer rug for the COLD WHITE HOUSE!!

    3. hankthetank says

      I think India is a Muslim country!

  3. Gustavo DiGiovanni says

    Another bad appointment but that’s what we’ve come to expect from obama.

  4. Joe T says

    His arrogant body language stance says it all with head up and the arms crossed in defiance………….an obama clone with sub-ethnic tendencies.

    1. defiant1 says

      If you see him in other pictures, he exhibits the same demeanor…….arrogance!

      1. Joe T says

        I tried sending you a photo of Obama giving the finger to us, here’ the link listmanager@thewhitehousewatch.com

        1. jetmagnet says

          You commie fruitcakes deserve the finger. What have any of you done but bitch.
          Take your commie azzes and go to North korea!

          1. Ron Warren says

            Wow! your jet magnet mind is REALLY screwed up!

          2. jetmagnet says

            This whole forum is full of hate filled racist bigots. This is white trash commie talk.
            You peeps believe in the same doctrine as commies and nazi’s who believed in white power bullshit, arien race. You commies think you’re better than anyone one else that ain’t white? Fox news is full of commies. They talk about how much they think Putin the commie is a great leader. LMFAO! Look at him now, on his knees thanks to Obama and our allies.
            Just what country do you commies think your in where you judge americans by their race or religion?

          3. leewacker says

            WE’RE the commies? Have you looked in the mirror recently?

          4. daledor says

            The head ‘commie’ slave of the New World Order is Obama. He picks the people that sponsor his agenda who are bad for America. To deny this is incredibly ignorant in lieu of how O defies the Constitution and acts like a dictator, ignoring the other 2 branches of Government – a true traitor.

            Yes he has a Hollywood presentation and speak eloquently usually but most of what he says he does not do – usually does the opposite and blames everyone else. A good leader does not defy the company or country he represents and ignore any other people who may disagree with him. A good leader is a good follower and listens and learns from others – not an arrogant slob who is right no matter what and everyone who disagrees on any point is the enemy.

            You probably do not understand or care to understand my reasoning, stuck in your own reality. Else, wake up and consider all things.

          5. jetmagnet says

            He’s a real leader, unlike rightwing nut jobs in congress with 12% approval rating and no accomplishments. Consider since baggers were elected in 2010 we’ve had the least productive congress in history. The last republican president and his criminal cronies brought down the economy and cost millions their homes and wealth. They also killed 5000 americans in a unecessary war and had the worst terrorist attack in history on their watch. I take Obama , lowest gas prices, economy up 11 million jobs, healthcare for millions, solution to immigration, 54 yr old stagnation toward cuba gone, help for vets, honored vets more than any other president. What has baggers done? The commies keep giving money to wealthy donors. If that what you love vote for them by all means. Obama has been honorable unlike you peeps with no class. Your hateful nasty rhetoric only proves commies are cynical and disgusting cancer in our society.
            We like what he’s doing because the people you vote for SUCK, ok? They just gave wall st the privilage of gambling with taxpayer money in the spending bill..you think the GOP learned their lesson with bush.

          6. Joe T says

            jetmagnet…..Your above comment “he is a leader” is not valid, pursuant to, factual based events in 2009 in the Democratic held Senate, to wit:

            Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama aka Pres Obama via his Senate Democrats has caused the lack of cooperation in govt, pursuant to THEIR BLATANT AND CONTRIVED PREVARICATIONS in passing the ACA aka Obamacare law. Barry’s self-evident inferiority complex and his being power hungry, is what has developed deleterious today-to current a run amok power crazy Pres, sans integrity; and by the law not being drafted for the benefit and good of ALL the citizens of the USA; NOT just a few indigent persons (ethnics) who are now allowed to receive Medicaid benefits. The EGO of Barry drives his inane actions….I know you can relate!

            In December 2009, the U.S. Senate voted 60 to 39 for Obamacare. The Washington Post reported “The Senate bill passed without a single GOP vote.” The Washington Post said of the Obamacare fight at the time “It has inflamed the partisanship that Obama pledged to tame when he campaigned for the White House and has limited Congress’s ability to pass any other major legislation.

            VERITAS!

          7. jetmagnet says

            Right! it passed without a single GOP vote because they are collective obstructionist and a disgrace to the country! 72,000 people die each year because they have no healthcare, and the GOP doesn’t care. 75,000 vets are without food stamps and 300,000 children because the GOP cut them. They knew people had a hard time finding jobs so they cut unemployment insurance. They 1.5 million people off the public sector payrolls and produced not one jobs plan.
            Look at what factual and real instead of buying into the “Script” provided by republican strategist and rightwing media. The GOP is useless and incompetant.
            All they can do is whine about obama and democrats, because they have nothing to run on, no accomplishments, they SUCK!! worthless!

          8. Jimmy King says

            Dumbassdor, again, please tell me what Obama has done and what part of the Constitution did his actions violate?

            You spew the same shit day after day, yet can’t back any of it up

          9. bug says

            u mean where u live? get out of our country traitor!!!

          10. jetmagnet says

            You people are no patriots- You follow a doctrine based on commie AYN RAND principles. Maybe you could all move to Texas and start your own commie country. The biggest funder of the bagger nation, the Koch’s . Daddy kissed stalins azz, bulit his economy that putin uses today to make money in the oil industry.
            Commies started out just like teabags racist bigots and trashing anyone that doesn’t follow them. You all walk the same path follow the same script written by bagger strategist sounds like communism.

      2. leewacker says

        He considers himself the “RAJAH” of medicine and knowledge!
        Maybe, that’s how we should refer to him—not “Dr.” Murtha, but “RAJAH” Murtha!

    2. A Lee Lowe says

      Looks muslim to me.

      1. toobored54 says

        Looks like the guy u get on the phone when ur Dell screws up.

      2. Joe T says

        IF looks, body language, ethnic race, and political ideology counts, the shoe fits him.

    3. Shauna says

      His whole “stance” is one of pure insecurity…( these type are so easy to peel back the layers). He is thinking if he “appears” to look like a badass, he will be perceived as one….problem is he will be just another “yes” man for Obama, and soon enough, he will be thrown under the bus, just like everyone else Obama blames for his incompetent decisions….God forbid, he actually take responsibility for anything he does…..I actually feel bad for this youngster, he is going to be another bitch boy…..He is going into this with all his ideals, but wait and see what happens when reality of all this hits….

      1. Shauna says

        Sorry, don’t mean to reply to myself but don’t see a place to edit my original comment.I wanted to add to it…Wanted to point out his body language.
        1. Stance is defensive..look at how his arms are tucked tucked tightly around his body. protecting himself.
        2. chin slightly jutting out…again defensive..little boys do that when they are trying to defend themselves..notice head cocked slightly to the side.
        3. eyes are soft, easy to read, not angry..
        assumption here but someone like this has spent most of his life with his head in books, not necessarily learning people skills. ( this is not always the case), but I “think” that is what the stance is about…just making observations. Politics and medicine have no business in the same breath…..Kid is in for a rude awakening, washington is a cesspool.

      2. Bob says

        I think you have this guy pegged….politics and medicine do not mix, and this guy has no place in such a lofty position without any experience. obama has again made mockery of the appointment process, choosing as always to prioritize political agreement over experience and substance. Disgusting!

        1. Shauna says

          Agreed! As for being pegged, not sure about that, just a different perspective. Growing up with 5 brothers and having worked with the public for most of my life, the ability to size someone up is rather spot on…However, I’m sizing up a picture and haven’t heard him open his mouth..LOLOL .But for now, I still call him a “poser”…..Either way, he won’t last, and enough of my babble, spent a lil too much time on this post…hahahaha!

          Anything that isn’t given a rightwing blessing it’s arrogant, not worthy or some other bigoted bullshit.
          You peeps are stupid moronic individuals that spend most of your waking hours bitching and complaining in a country that allows anti-government commies say what they want. These websites promote hate and ignorance.
          If i see a rational or positive comment about anything a rightwing wackjob says i’d be suprised. You live in world of shit. I don’t, I’m happy to live in a free country and have a great president that doesn’t destroy my wealth or income.

            It’s always for the good of the people, these socialist commie muslims make me sick.

  7. Roy McCray says

    Why did so many American voted for such a deception and arrogance that mocked God and support the regime of the Islam, has challenged our IN GOD WE TRUST ? . LACK OF THE GOSPEL. Jesus showed me this man was a forerunner. Many were used not once but twice. Now we have to deal with the thorns and the bitter herbs. BUT this next election is the most important.!!!! Because this election is about, who can God use to restore the land?. America has been infiltrated by those who reject Jesus, hate America, ISIS, illegal immigrants, Muslim appointee’s, and we are to stupid to see the cause. The next President has to HAVE FAITH AND BELIVE IN GOD WE TRUST. HE WILL INHERIT ALL THOSE WHO WAS USED TO TEARDOWN AMERICA, DISRESPECT FOR GOD AND ECONOMIC CONQUEST. LOOK AROUND YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD. ON the state level, stop selling America, and allowing hell to build it institute of religious freedom. RELIGION HAS NO FREDOM IT CONQUER, ONLY THE GOSPEL OF JESUS HAS FREEDOM. YOU get to decide, God gave you a choice to love accept and receive JESUS. HE does not BEHEAD YOU, BURY YOU ALIVE, RAPE YOUR DAUGHTER AND scream my religious freedom. HELL DOES THAT. and just to think All those people who voted for such. WOW! now I understand NOAH’S DAYS. BUT THANK GOD FOR MERCY, JESUS!!!!!

  8. Deborah G says

    As with ALL Obama’s choice NO WHITES NEED APPLY! his ridiculous choices always include pals, payback, people of color and LBGT, Never any real experience just left wing ideologs who support his Commie, Socialist agenda.

    1. Laddyboy says

      As mr. obama stated; “I will reward my friends and I will punish my enemies.”

      1. Deborah G says

        He’s done that now what?

        1. Laddyboy says

          Deborah G: We The People NOW have to start SCREAMING at OUR representatives who think they do not have to listen to us. Phone calls NEED to be made. Faxes MUST be made showing our discontent of their actions and votes. When a representative votes against OUR will WE MUST respond. They do listen if enough People show they are aggravated by contacting YOUR representative.

          Old Saying:

          Only the squeaking wheel gets the grease applied.

          1. Jimmy King says

            Lapboy, you’re delusional if you think your rep gives a shit about you. Your rep cares about the NRA $, Big oil/coal $, Koch $, etc. You and your phone calls mean nothing. They wipe their asses with your faxes

          2. Laddyboy says

            Jimmy King: Your language identifies you as a DemocRAT. Why do you “kick against the pricks”? Do you NOT like truth to be spoken? My experience has taught me that the DemocRATs and RINOs only want to CONTROL the People. People who know how to communicate do not use “gutter” language. I acknowledge that many of the “Professional Politicians” have lawyer backgrounds and have BOUGHT their way into the politicial arena. These dead heads need to be removed from Office and replaced with Representatives who WILL listen to their Constituents. Honorable People do exhist.
            Again I say look at the voting history of the person you are thinking about casting a vote for. If that person has voted against the People’s Will or against the Constitution of These United States of America, then vote that person OUT of Office. This past November has shown that it CAN be done.

          3. Jimmy King says

            Littleboy, give me an example of a person who has voted against the constitution and how that vote went against the constitution

            Jimmy King; I have been respectful of you. You are reverting to NAME CALLING as any DemocRAT has proven. Perhaps you should keep drinking the cool-aid. It might help you to wake up and smell the roses.
            Example:
            mr. obama
            mr. holder
            ms. learner
            The list goes on and on and on and on. Read the real papers, not the propaganda for the controlled MSM.

          5. Jimmy King says

            Littleboy Again you’ve shown yourself to be nothing but a parrot. I asked how the votes went against the constitution, or examples. And of course you couldn’t provide any. The Real Papers you’re reading must be the comics, cause you’re a joke

    2. Laurence Almand says

      Just what else do you expect from a lazy, anti-work Socialist?

      1. Deborah G says

        As OBama said “A Bitchen weed partay”

      2. Shauna says

        more golf? *slinks away*

    3. yshaw1 says

      He, OB is the number one racist. If you’re smart, and white -forget it.
      The Audacity of Hope is that He appoints a qualified person to anything!

      1. Deborah G says

        It is all in his radical Mulim based Black panther Communist upbringing and a mother who bnever met a dark man she wouldn’t sleep with

  9. artalem says

    He looks like a cashier in a convenience store! Is he even a legal citizen?

    1. Peter Pan says

      Probably works at 7-11

    2. ward says

      The dip that appointed this muslim crap hole isn’t a citizen so that would say what he is in jihad lingo … !

    3. Combatvet52 says

      Most likely like the fool in the empty chair, no records.

  10. Peter Pan says

    If something sinister would happen to Obama, there would be dancin in the streets….nobody would even shed a tear.

    1. kenndeb says

      I got tossed off huff post for making a similar comment. I love commenting on liberal sites. Such love and tolerance for opposing viewpoints. Anyone that likes to poke liberals should join the few conservatives that are posting on the National Memo. It’s always nice to see more conservatives stating truths and the liberals seething.

  11. sturgis says

    This should be no surprise. Fact, half of soetoro’s advisers are either communist, or muslim. If the Republicans, mainly the speaker of the house, ” bone head”. keep going along with that POS in the W. H. ,,,,,,,,,, vote Tea Party! The Tea Party are the only ones defending the Constitution! It’s so obvious this POS is a communist muslim, and he’s in the process of destroying this country, as we know it!!!

    1. hankthetank says

      HE is a Muslim, Sunni !!!

      1. sturgis says

        Yes I know.

  12. Patriot47 says

    And the destruction continues at breakneck speed.

  13. American says

    It’s troubling enough that Murthy is anti-Second Amendment, but why does Obama always pick people with no credible relevant experience or expertise for the job? It’s almost like he doesn’t want them to do their job well….

    1. william couch says

      Makes an incompetent SPOOK look good.

    2. Mark Clemens says

      If a dumb person surrounds them self w/dumber people, it might make them look.smart……….

      1. hankthetank says

        In business ,you never hire anyone smarter than you , they will take your job!

    3. mallen11 says

      He can’t think beyond his background. It is hopeless to try to get through to him. Our only hope is for more people to turn to God and put Him first in their lives. As goes the believer, so goes the nation.

    4. hankthetank says

      That is why he picks those kind,he dose not want this country to succeed!

  14. fred says

    And are we allowed to ask if this Muslim is a citizen, or have all his records gone missing as well? He’s obviously part of another sinister plan to take both our health and our means to protect ourselves, which has nothing to do with this position btw! Or maybe it does in a communist society which is what this pos wants for us! Block this creep from the position, we have the power to do that now if you have forgotten what happened in November already?! I believe we the people should incrementally be taking our freedoms back now and not give in the the illegal alien born in kenya on one item he wants! The “patriot act” should be next, then dismantling CIA/NSA from taking OUR right to privacy as well…

  15. Buster Gipson says

    Lets compare , Obama qualifications NONE, Murthy NONE , perfect match

  16. defiant1 says

    This man was born in the UK, parents came with him and family to Miami when he was very young. The bios I found did not state if he was a citizen, could not find if he was muslim.

    1. mallen11 says

      We the people need to know those things. If not a citizen, off he goes.

  17. wildeagleone says

    This is just another example of Obama staking the government with puppets he has control over. May this atty gen stay just as long on the job as the public allows and that shouldn’t be too long

  18. Sylvester Jones says

    Get rid of him and Obama.

    1. ArmyCombatVet says

      The GOP(RINOS) own Congress now and they proved their worth by rolling over to have their bellies rubbed. The greatest collection of traitors in world history. Surgeon general my butt, a third world anti-second amendment yes man, who looks like most of the taxi drivers in NY! Another lips are moving POS leg humper for the limp wristed impostor Barry Soetoro or whatever it’s name is!

  19. jjames60 says

    Just one more step to a complete police state, a dream OB was fulfilled before he leaves office. More than likely another muslim to please ISIS in their beliefs. This whole administration is corrupt, dictatorship, and could care less for the country. This whole administration is the biggest enemy of the country and protests should occur in the millions to start sending a message to the communist regime.

  20. MILES E DRAKE says

    The surgeon general is supposed to have public health experience, but this fellow is simply a medical Obama – a former resident and low-ranking clinical instructor noted among his fellows for his left-wing politics and his adulation for our would-be dictator, hailed for no particular reason as a genius and a visionary but in fact an advocate of state totalitarianism. His role is to convert the health care system into an arm of state surveillance and enforcement. It is telling that his stance and expression are the same as the businesslike unsympathetic men in white coats who superintend the torture of Winston and other dissidents in Orwell’s “1984”. We need to save him a place, too, on the planes that will take our Ceaucescus into Kenyan or Indonesian exile when the people have had enough.

  21. C K Johnson says

    He is fresh out of his training. Obama always looks for YES people. Since Obama has no experience that is the kind of Cabinet he put together. Obama is on a mission to destroy the United States. So this yes man will fit right in. Obama support Terrorist states which is against the Constitution but so is Obama. Obama has found the Terrorist country Cuba a good country to give Tax Payers dollars too. When is this chicken shit Congress say Enough. Start Impeachment proceedings and impeach him for about 100 illegal actions Obama has passed. He said the Federal court could not rule against Illegal immigration. Richard Nixon did not do 1% of what Obama has done. He was Impeached. Nixon did nothing against the National security of the United States. Clinton was Impeached for sex with an intern. There were 23 million real private sector jobs created. Now we have 90 million people without a job. Obamas Administrations math .Has 5.8% Unemployment If every legal citizen in the U.S. about 360 million people. The unemployment rate would be 25% He is using VOO DOO math.

    1. headonstraight says

      Not “fresh out of his training:

      ” In 2003, Murthy received an MD from Yale School of Medicine and an MBA in Health Care Management from Yale School of Management.[4][5] He completed his residency in Internal Medicine in 2006 from Brigham and Women’s Hospital.[6]”

      Read more information on his considerable professional accomplishments:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vivek_Murthy

      Having read that, you may now hang your bigoted head in shame as you contemplate your ignorant and intemperate characterization of this accomplished man’s many achievements.

      1. C K Johnson says

        8 years is not a lot of experience in medicine. Some medications take 15 to 20 years to develop.

        1. headonstraight says

          But 8 years is decidedly NOT “fresh out of his training” and you know that.
          And the length of time required to develop a medication has nothing to do with the length of occupational medical experience required for a practitioner to become well accomplished in his/her field.

          Apples and oranges, C.K., or maybe more like watermelons and kumquats.
          Get real!

          1. C K Johnson says

            I am too adult to discuss juvenile things .With a Demonicrat! I can not tell the difference in a pile of $hit and a Demonicrat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          2. headonstraight says

            No. You have simply been faced down by the facts and are too obstinate to admit it, so you offer your transparently childish response in a failed effort to escape embarrassment.

          3. C K Johnson says

            You start off calling people names! I knew you were a Demonicrat. I am dropping this. Because calling names is not an educated way to disagree. Have a nice day.

          4. headonstraight says

            Names like “Demonicrat”??

            It is wise for you to “drop” this, since your continuation would only result in more embarrassment for you.

  22. barry sharp says

    I do not know how he got out of the Hotel/Motel or gas station business to become a doctor. It doesn’t surprise me though that Obama appoints another minority to his staff of useless minions. Just another mouth piece for the Obama administration.

    1. headonstraight says

      I respectfully suggest that you educate yourself concerning the background of this accomplished gentleman:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vivek_Murthy

      I also suggest that after you have read the information in the link provided you hang your head in abject shame and deserved disgrace as you realize what a deplorable bigot you are.

  23. dondehoff says

    This is still another “cry in the dark”. “Congress, where are you”!? There is going to be blood in the streets and the “bigger finger” will have to be pointed to at congress—there are acts of “commission” and acts of “omission”, the later being just as serious and disastrous as the former. All too many of our congresspersons are being “useful fools”. As soon as the NWO (spelled–“M-U-S-L-I-M”) takes over,” all of those congressional “useful fools” will be let out to pasture—those who resist will lose their heads just like the rest of we “non-believers”. If we act now, on the much talked about Presidential “impeachment” and criminal actions, being committed nation-wide, we might be able to accomplish our goals at the poles and in the courts—-if it becomes blood in the streets, many of our congresspersons too will have to stand in front of the public firing squads. This appointment of an unqualified Surgeon General, is an insult to all Americans, regardless of race or color and is a clear-cut challenge by the President, for us to try and do something about it. Let us accommodate him! I suspect I soon will be silenced, one way or another. Don’t let that stop you!!!

  24. sandraleesmith46 says

    All that this man and the regime he stands with are the FAR greater health threat to American citizens, starting with O(don’t)care, and moving through all the liberal/ progressive/ dem agenda and support groups, than guns will ever be to us! Things like protected rapists, protected HIV carriers/ spreaders, protected pedophiles, protected racist hate mongers, importation, and/ or unchecked invasion of other carriers of diseases not common here, and of course, the death panels themselves! It’s the drug-induced CRAZIES who choose a gun to “explode” with, not the FACT of guns! Others use other even more readiy available weapons to do the same thing. Stop pushing pills with deadly consequences on inadequately monitored PEOPLE, and we’ll likely see a decline in such “explosions”.

  25. m g says

    He has qualifications that are unique to a medical doctor. He can play a flute and make a cobra dance.

  26. sweetolbob says

    He looks to be about the same caliber as the woman that Hitlery forced Slick Willie to appoint that was going to slow the black birthrate to unwed mothers by TEACHING kids to masturbate.
    ………… That’s right, TEACHING ! ………….. WHAT A MAROON ! (credit to Bugs bunny)

    The position of Surgeon General has no value except for a nagging propaganda value. It is often used by people like Obama and Clinton (mostly democRATS) to give extra weight to arguments favoring own their personal, unconstitutional aims. In this case, attack on firearms and firearms ownership.

  27. jag57 says

    This guy isn’t fit for dog catcher, and what I’m seeing, he doesn’t have 2 brain cells to rub together. First, he lobbied hard to pass Hitlercare, with death panels, now he is going against the 2nd amendment; Hitler or Stalin would have loved him.

  28. Laddyboy says

    America does not need another appointed communist leader who wants to disarm law abiding American People. From what I read, this ‘man?’ does not like, as mr. obama, the Constitution of These United States of America. This man should NOT hold the office. The Congress must remove this ‘man?’ come January. We The People should have a say in who will be placed in these Offices that influence the politics which affect Americans.

  29. Alan404 says

    Another Obama clone nominated by the master of political slight of hand, confirmed by a lap dog senate. Shameful,oh so shameful, but then what might one expect..

  30. Laurence Almand says

    Another foreign invader taking a job from a competent, native-born person. And yes, of course it is a political payback.
    You can be sure he will kowtow to anything Obummer says.

  31. Diana Brooks says

    You hit on the head Joe! But considering some of Emperor Obamas other appointments at least he isn’t a janitor! But is is a political payoff placement ? YOU BETCHA! More of the SSDD of this entire administration!

  32. Diana Brooks says

    Like resident i once worked with , would cross his arms and defiantly tell a superior “I studied in the great rotunda , I know all”

    1. headonstraight says

      Watch out for that cross-armed crowd; definitely not to be trusted!

  33. JosephDygas says

    Write your congressman and ask them to cut the budget for the surgeon general’s office and limit his ability to pursue an anti gun rights agenda.

  34. valc says

    Should never have been confirmed.Senators and congressmen alike should have to pay the price instead of we the people.

  35. joe joe says

    looks like the brotherhood is still in the W.H. and our government is still out to lunch! I’m telling you America its time to clean the HOUSE….

  36. Chris Robinette says

    He has the educational background but only 8 years in clinical practice? As for administration he can handle that. We shall see how he does. I will give him the benefit of the doubt and would like to see how he does with an open mind.

  37. jetmagnet says

    It seems that fruitcakes are against ANY appointee no mattter how good his or if he’s the best person for the Job. Thank’s to fruitcakes in congress we haven’t had a surgeon general. Thanks these azzclowns we have 15 embassies with no ambassador. Thanks to these incompetent clowns are justice system is without 24 judges who republicans have no excuse for not appointing. They’re commie bastards trying to disrupt the government. In the case of the surgeon general, he said something about the NRA which delayed his appointment. So the Gun lobby run by a dictator ( because thousands of members can’t stand wayne the “prick” pierre) can squeeze poosie republicans to delay the appointment. Why? becuase the GOP is corrupt,and serves wealthy donors, not the people of United States.

  38. Shauna says

    One unqualified libtard nominating another unqualified libtard…What’s new?

  39. John Barleycorn says

    OBAMA DOESN’T APPOINT ANYONE BASED ON QUALIFICATION . . .
    HIS MOTIVES AND SELECTIONS ARE BASED ON POLITICS . .MARXIST POLITICS

    1. headonstraight says

      People who know much more than you do (which is to say they know anything at all) don’t line up with your asinine and ignorant ASSessment.

      “Murthy’s nomination received broad support from over 100 medical and public health organizations in the U.S., including the American College of Physicians, the American Public Health Association, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, and the American Diabetes Association.[18] He also received the endorsements of two former Surgeons General, Dr. David Satcher and Dr. Regina Benjamin. However, another former Surgeon General.”

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V

  40. toobored54 says

    Looks like a cocky lil POS. Hell likely screw up something in short order.

  41. leewacker says

    His life should be made very miserable, by those of us who see through his lying position—he really thinks highly of himself, but is actually an insult to doctors everywhere! Would love to see him try to debate someone like Dr. Carson, or–even DR. (Senator) Paul! THAT would be interesting to see just how much medicine Murtha really knows!

  42. Alan C Rohner says

    Joe, ‘arms crossed’; I have heard is a defensive posture.

    1. headonstraight says

      Yep, watch out for those defensive, “arms crossed” types. Definitely not to be trusted. See “The Gipper”, below.

      For an expanded version, go here:

  43. marilyn says

    VIVEK,IS JUST THE MAN TO BE OUR MEDICAL GENERAL,HE AND THE CHIEF ARE FROM THE SAME CUT.CHAOS,PROBABLY A HANG NAIL SPECIALIST WHO EMANINATES CHARM TO THE PARTY OF DOOM,,AL SHARPTON WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER.

  44. John Barleycorn says

    Expect this peckerwood to rally behind the anti 2nd amendment traitors, it’s obvious his selection was a political one because his qualifications of expertise are substandard ..

  45. Grinling Gibbons says

    Yes the crossed arms is the signal of someone who thinks they have the upper hand & i suppose he,s right as he just got picked for the job because of his beiefs in-line with Obama,s, so now you have Another Evil Bastard to help possibly kill americans with his works inline with Obama,s, well done america you have collected more trash to help you die.

    1. headonstraight says

      So “evil bastards” are identified by their crossed arms?

  46. lin says

    It’s not the guns that are the problem. The people with mental health problems are no longer cared for in institutions. They are in the community, living with relatives and many are homeless. Many families are at a loss on how to help them. They are often told that the only hope is for them to be arrested for a crime, and then they’ll get services. The Newtown shooting was directly related to the lack of mental health services for the young man who killed so many in Newton. He had a very long history of severe mental illness and nothing was done.

  47. Joe T says

    More regrets of believing the Pied Piper Obama

    After endorsing him for President in 2008, the Billings-based Gazette – Montana’s largest newspaper – has admitted that they were off the mark in supporting Barack Obama and have been proven wrong by the last six years of history.

    As part of a June 27th editorial, the paper said, “Sometimes, you have to admit you’re wrong. And, we were wrong.”

    An unusual move for a newspaper to make, the Gazette’s editors felt they had no choice but to apologize for endorsing a young candidate who has been at the center of several scandals (Benghazi, the IRS, Iraq) as well as a President who has done little to make progress on his most important campaign promises. The latter is actually great news for anyone who doesn’t want to see the country slide into a liberal swamp, but it’s understandable that the Gazette would not see things this way.

  48. Paul Hayward says

    More stupidity – violating the Public’s trust – to engage anyone but the best available candidate is shortsighted, foolhardy and self-indulgent. Like one of my dear friends likes to say – “We have the best Government that money can buy”… Guns, volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, and asteroids all pose significant health risks…. best get right to work Dr. Murthy…. no doubt you are paid well enough for us to expect miracles….

  49. headonstraight says

    There are knowledgeable people and respected organizations that supported his nomination:

    “Murthy’s nomination received broad support from over 100 medical and public health organizations in the U.S., including the American College of Physicians, the American Public Health Association, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, and the American Diabetes Association.[18] He also received the endorsements of two former Surgeons General, Dr. David Satcher and Dr. Regina Benjamin. However, another former Surgeon General.”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vivek_Murthy

    And of course there will be those who knee-jerkedly oppose any and all nominations by the current President.

    No surprise there; just right-wing retrograde robots at work, as usual..
