    Yep, still hate commie tards.

    But what makes Vivek Hallegere Murthy such a controversial choice for the post is not what you might expect. It’s not that he is a champion of late-term abortions (though he probably is) or believes in fully government-subsidized sex reassignment surgeries (though he probably does).

    The problem with Murthy, rather, is his position on guns.

    Guns and public health are two different things. The merging of the two is a disaster. This nominee needs to be stopped in his tracks.

    Not to mention that this is blatantly cronyism. The guy is 36 years old meaning he's got what, 7 or 8 years as a practicing physician? However, he did organize the Doctors for Obama committee but that couldn't have anything to do with it could it.

    Medical malpractice by doctors kills more people every year in the US than guns do.

    That's the best objection. I know one of the professional associations for doctors has taken an anti-gun stance, but I'm not sure if its the AMA or the pediatrician's group, but that makes it difficult to find a doctor who doesn't share that view, but is also qualified to be SG.


    But a doctor whose been a doctor for less than 10 years? That's an easier objection to make, and one that some democrats might agree with.

    He'd be better off picking a career military doctor for the job.

    I can't see this guy getting the post.

    This is an election year, and blue dog dems won't be all the eager to support any gun grabbing, pro-choice, partisan hack like this guy is.

    This is the logical next step. When you cannot outright ban it politically, you connect "mental" evaluation with violence and thus guns. If everyone is diagnosed as having a "mental disorder" then no one will own a gun.
