(I didn't write the following, but couldn't say it any better myself.)

Obama is still going full tilt filling government posts with wackaloons who have no qualifications to hold the post.

I present to you Vivek Murthy, whose nomination can not be blocked. Dr. Murthy is 36 years old. Never practiced medicine a day in his life, earned and MBA right after his MD and here is the kicker...

He has testified that gun violence in this country is a "public health crisis" in this nation. Get ready for Obamacare linking your medical records to gun ownership, and this guy will oversee that transition.

Dr. Murthy's full time job: "physician political organizer." LOL. Could not make this story up if I tried. He will not only organize mental health records and NICS, but will be a nice mouth piece to get docs on board with Obamacare.

His nomination can not be stopped, because the Republicans after a decade of going full retard have no political power.

Vivek Murthy: From Political Operative to Nation's Top Doc?

President Obama has named his nominee for the post of Surgeon General. And already it is apparent that the jokes about Vivek Murthy are just too easy to make. Not that this will stop me from making them, mind you, but it feels cheap somehow.

Politico reports:

President Barack Obama’s selection of a 36-year-old founder of an Obamacare advocacy group to serve as the nation’s top doctor has brought accusations that he’s too young and too political to be surgeon general.

He's been out of school for all of eight years and his claim to fame is having organized a group of doctors into an advocate/activist base for the passage of Obamacare. One congressman has already gone the cheap-humor route by pointing out that Obama's qualification for President was his work as a "community organizer" and now he's nominated a "doctor organizer" for the top doc spot. I refuse to go that route. I would rather point out that Murthy's ethnicity is a clear attempt by the Administration to prove they are not racially motivated in their indictment of Dinesh D'Souza. (Which will not fool us, by the way.)

Murthy would replace Regina Benjamin, whose five years in the job have been almost as silent as the administration's protests against Islamic human rights violations. She made the rather self-defeating choice early on to advocate against obesity as her number one cause. Which is a bit like Miley Cyrus advocating against twerking.

So, no doubt, we'll be treated to some confirmation hearings. Murthy's dearth of achievement or qualification will maybe make for some rhetorical jousting.

But what I'm hoping it does is make people wonder why we need a Surgeon General in the first place. The spot is not a Constitutionally authorized position, and Benjamin has proven that the train wreck moves forward just fine without one. Even NPR, who never met a budget item they didn't love admits:

The surgeon general holds no authority over any serious research funding, lacks a clear legislative role in health policy, has no regulatory powers, and doesn't even report directly to either the president or the secretary of Health and Human Services.

According to the surgeon general's Web site, the official's primary job is to be "a highly recognized symbol" of the nation's health agencies; essentially, she is the public relations person for other people making the important decisions. Even in that limited role, [the top doc] may be hamstrung since the surgeon general's entire operations budget, by comparison, is less than one-thousandth of the annual sales budget of Pfizer.

But we pay this person at the level of a three-star admiral, along with all travel expenses. We're talking about a very highly paid (via tax dollars) government spokesperson on health issues. I thought that was the first lady's job. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I propose that we think outside the box on this issue and nominate a real doctor with many years of experience in medical research and development, as well as a very public record of medical testing, Dr. Bunsen Honeydoo. The kids would listen, and that seems to be the only goal. That, and the payback for political loyalty.

More on this crazed anti-gunner. And (in red below) now you know one of the reasons your health care questionaires ask if you own guns.

------------------

The Twitter feed of @vivek_murthy leaves no doubt about how eager the Obama nominee is to restrict gun rights:

1. Vivek Murthy @vivek_murthy Apr 21<br>
Signs of progress-we got 20 votes in the senate in favor of gun violence legislation that we wouldn’t have had 1 year ago. Have faith #dr4a

2. Vivek Murthy @vivek_murthy Apr 21<br>
Docs fired up to keep fighting for gun safety laws @Drsforamerica natl conference with @haroldpollack Brina Milikowsky, Eric Fleegler #dr4a

3. Vivek Murthy @vivek_murthy 21 Dec 2012<br>
NRA press conference disappointing but predictable - blame everything in the world except guns for the Newtown tragedy. #wakeup

After the shooting in Newtown, Murthy’s group authored an open letter to Obama that urged restrictions on gun rights in the name of the medical profession, stating:

It’s time for common sense gun rules like background checks and banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, as well as a comprehensive plan to address gun violence including ensuring funding for research and data-collection on gun violence and ensuring that health care providers can ask patients about gun ownership in order to counsel them appropriately about safety measures.

Is this the type of doctors we will have to put up with in Obamascare. Where does he get these Bozos?

Remember in November, folks. Nothing counts if you don't turn up for the midterms.


Let's relegate this Communist Oxygen Thief to political irrelevancy for the next two years. He hasn't had a single significant legislative achievement since Obamacare. He's spent his time since then fighting Republicans nickel-by-nickel on the budget, defending his healthcare reforms, and bleating to the heavens that he can run the country with the Executive Branch - (the only branch he currently controls).


Let's send him into history as a failed President. Get a buddy, teach him to shoot...and VOTE.
