Another Obama appointed loser.

Still, better a fool like Obama in the WH instead of an Israeli agent like the Hillerator.

Oh, I guess she's still nearby.

Just great.

What a country. The power of Orwell and Huxley is too much.

Of course he does--female and black! I'll wager there is no other person in this country more qualified. The "king of comedy" should expaand his horizens and spend less time in the barnyard!

Obama our black leader of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA just appointed a black surgeon general.

In addition to a black attorney general, a black
head of NASA. Not to mention a hispanic woman to the highest court in the land.

YES WE CAN, YES WE WILL, and YES WE ARE!

BAPF!!!!!!!!

Oh please, how many REAL docs do you know?

Most likely zero, and they all have 'degrees.'

Medical 'science' is mostly a bunch of perps working for the corps turning a profit trying to keep the masses sick.

Ask yourself, is their more money in healthy people or keeping people partly sick?

Answer: keep 'em sick, and they just keep on coming for more treatment to keep them sick.

Just like any other addiction, including TV/film.

The only thing that a "surgeon general" does it sign their name to warning labels on packs of smokes and do Life Alert infomercials. A waste of space position if ever there was one. Almost as useless as FEMA director or Head of the EPA.

Regina Banjamin will certainly do splendidly!
She will know what she is talking about. Obama has courage and will! You bet he will make you a
health care system that has the right focus.

I think it is just fabulous that Obama picked a doctor with exactly that background and experience. What else could acrually fit better?!!
I hope I can wish youi strange Americans "Welcome onboard" - we hve probably had a health care system for 50 years that has worked better for the citizens than even Obama's best solution will be able to work in 10 years from now. But you have to get startet - the sooner the better.
And that is what we've all seen - right now.
Wish her all the best of luck

I wonder if she will advocate to teenagers that it is better to beat your meat or twiddle your clitty instead of having sex?

If so, here's my response: Simulation is like masturbation, the more of it you do the less you recall how the real thing is like!

“Salutations!”

US healthcare has the highest patient satisfaction rate in world. Not sure why we wouldnt be taking the patients word on this.
