Obama's Surgeon Corporal
You’d think that the Obama administration would, in a crucial election year, be a smidgen less confrontational when it comes to appointees requiring congressional approval. Immediately on the heels of a failed Justice Department nomination of another liberal radical minority candidate, the tone-deaf but determined apparatchiks surrounding our part-time president have forwarded another dubious appointee, this one to the surgeon general’s office. Out of the tens of thousands of wise and experienced American physicians available for consideration, do they offer up the Democratic equivalent of a Ben Carson – an accomplished, demonstrably erudite and constitutionally patriotic neurosurgeon? Well, no. It’s the political equivalent of a big fat middle finger to those who have dedicated decades of their lives to caring for America’s health.
The decision-making ideologues in this ideological administration have offered to the Congress for their approval a callow 36-year-old radical liberal, Dr. Vivek Hallegere Murthy, who can be guaranteed to carry out their ideological mission of politicizing medicine in ways the American people could never anticipate. Want your doctor visit to include a thorough quiz about the firearms you possess? Want to be required by federal law to have their serial numbers in your medical records?
This British-born whiz-kid nominee is no doubt a bright boy, as demonstrated by his academic fast track, but in the world of medicine, he is precisely that: a boy, über-bright, assuredly, but as yet not a fully tested member of the medical profession who has earned the respect of that large, gray, wise eminence that oversees the hands-on health management of this nation.
Make no mistake about it: this is not an administration nominating the best candidate to oversee the health concerns of this country. This is nothing more than a far-left administration attempting to secure just one more niche in the government power structure with the placement of a Kool-Aid-consuming true believer of their socialist agenda. Murthy is an outright opponent of 2nd Amendment rights, which is most likely what determined his selection by the administration. If that doesn’t wake you up to the reality that the Democrats are coming for your guns, then you are part of the problem.
We have seen the effect of electing a young, inexperienced president simply because it allowed the nation to achieve a first in world governance and history. That was an event that temporarily elevated America in the eyes of the world, until the obvious foolishness of such national impulse began to show. Had that young, inexperienced chief executive seized the moment and surrounded himself with citizens of true accomplishment and wisdom, this nation and this world might have found itself in a far different posture from what we have now.
This latest appointee, Dr. Vivek Hallegere Murthy, is but the most recent example of this administration's deceitful intent and dismissive disdain for those its members govern. Dr. Murthy, like our president before election in 2008, has never managed anything. He’s like a community organizer in the medical community: politically active, medically questionable. Surely even some of the Democrat members of the Senate can see through the obvious and deliberate politics of this nomination and realize the total inadequacy of this nominee. If they can’t, their constituents can.
Young Murthy would be no surgeon general. At best, he'll be a surgeon corporal.
