One of the most memorable lines from the movie Forest Gump was “stupid is as stupid does,” a little maxim that seems to apply to the Obama administration. And so it goes –while Obama lost the Senate confirmation for Debo Adegbile, nominated for Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, he has no problem sending up another radical for a different post.Hat tip to Howard Portnoy at Liberty Unyielding who writes, “President Obama has jumped right back into the fray with another radical nominee, this time for Surgeon General. But what makes Vivek Hallegere Murthy, 36, such a controversial choice for the post is not what you might expect. The problem with Murthy is his position on guns. Namely, he thinks one of the questions doctors should ask patients during a routine medical history is whether the person has any guns in his home.”
Portnoy reports that Murthy is president and co-founder of Doctors for America, an anti-gun group that advocates making gun control a facet of the practice of medicine. He also wants to spend tax dollars on more research to prove that fewer guns mean a lower crime rate – never mind that numerous reputable studies prove the opposite.
Before the 2012 presidential election, Murthy tweeted that “guns are a health care issue” and believes not only should doctors counsel patients against gun ownership, but patients’ private medical records should include gun ownership – which of course would be available to government scrutiny under Obamacare.”
Obama and his radicals just keep coming regardless of the exposure of this insidious agenda. They are relentless and I wish we had the same manner of resolve and aggressiveness in the GOP side on Capitol Hill. Republicans continue to play by self-imposed restrictive rules of engagement that are simply asinine and afford every advantage to these progressive socialists. Why is Murthy being nominated? It’s simple – he’s yet another radical progressive, just like the fella in the White House. Birds of a feather do indeed flock together.
