Reid Blaming Gun Control Groups for Murthy Trouble

The New York Daily News is running an article on the troubled nomination Dr. Vivek Murthy for the post of Surgeon General, which has a Reid staffer suggesting that “MAIG and other gun control organizations failed to meet his request to provide political cover Democrats needed to take tough votes on Murthy.” Well, you know, that’s because they don’t have any cover to offer. Mark Glaze is quoted in the article noting that his group has “emailed its more than 1.5 million members to tie the Murthy attacks to what it says are other instances of the NRA trying to ‘get between us and our doctors.'” The problem is, their members haven’t really done anything except get themselves on a mailing list. They don’t have a dog, or a gun in the fight. All of NRA’s members either pay annual dues or have paid hundreds and sometimes thousands for life memberships. It’s not too surprising, in that instance, that MAIG doesn’t have the juice to cover skeptical Democrats on a controversial nominee.

Harry Reid has certainly abandoned any semblance of supporting gun rights, but that jab at MAIG and MDA from one of his staffers made my day.

    If only there were a way to make Harry Reid an ally….

    The GOP has an excellent opportunity to seize the majority in the midterms, we may not have to worry about this guy much longer regardless of whether he retires. Be nice if he would take his entire caucus with him.

    ….and don’t you forget it Mr. Reid….we’re here to hound you until you straighten up or you’re no longer relevant.

    If the gun-grabbers hadn’t tried to shove our doctors in between us and our rights, this wouldn’t be such a problem.

    I have yet to meet an MD who was qualified to speak to me about lifestyle, guns, or any other of a host of social issues. When they tread over that line of what I deem to be a medical question, they are in for a rash of shit from me. If they don’t like it, they should shut their yaps. Unless they are out to prove how stupid they really are, how much judgment they lack.

    Well, I can’t say that I fault Harry. If I belonged to the stupid party, I’d blame somebody else for my ridiculous anti-liberty positions too!
