    CDC official called Obama ‘Marxist,’ ‘amateur’ over 2014 border surge

    CDC official called Obama
    Is Obama really a Marxist? There are many talks about him being a marxist but what exactly makes him a communist? He looks like a typical leftist in my opinion (though original communists were lefties too). Is there even any difference between liberals and communists (in its original sense). Communists were striving for total equality and refusal of the traditional way of life. Leftists are doing the same thing.

    He's not a Marxist. Hell, he's not all that liberal. He is a crappy president though.

    Looks like there's gonna be at least two job openings in the Federal government, both at the CDC.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Maybe even worse than that, the CDC, I think may still be part of the Coast Guard.

    They're not part of the Coast Guard, but they are part of the Uniformed Health Services and wear the same uniforms.

    I don't know that firing these two is justified or even possible. What did they do wrong? I don't know that this is any more punishable than if they had sent a couple of emails back and forth concerning plans for the weekend.

    They are part of the Uniformed Services of the Federal Government. They made "disparaging" remarks regarding the Commander-In-Chief using official communications.

    They're gone.

    The article doesn't claim that either is a PHS officer. How are you so sure?

    There are seven groups that are part of the Uniformed Services of The United States.
    1) US Army
    2) US Navy
    3) US Marine Corps
    4) US Air Force
    5) US Coast Guard
    6) National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and
    7) US Public Health Service (National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

    Other than NOAA, they have all been around for a long time, including the US PHS:


    U.S. Department of Health and Human Services - Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service

    Look, I hope they are not going to get fired - I agree with them... to a point. But, given the vindictive and hateful way the administration has treated others that do not agree with them, I would doubt that they are safe.

    lol.... no.

    Anyone who says so, or who classifies Obama as a "socialist," are utterly clueless.

    However, I'm not surprised that bureaucrats are not all fans of Obama or his policies. Civil servants are mostly lifers, so their opinions aren't going to change based on who is President.

    That said: If the worst thing Judicial Watch can find in 3000 emails is two civil servants taking cheap shots at the President, then I doubt they've got anything remotely substantial. While I support transparency, I also support pointing out that JW is basically full of it.
