    Conyers’s opposition to Gupta is connected to Michael Moore

    Conyers’s opposition to Gupta is connected to Michael Moore

    TheHill.com


    Citing a lack of experience, Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) is leading an effort to thwart Barack Obama’s expected nomination of CNN’s Sanjay Gupta to become surgeon general.

    But there are also indications that Conyers’s opposition is linked to a 2007 public clash between Gupta and the liberal filmmaker Michael Moore.

    The House Judiciary Committee chairman doesn’t have a vote, or a formal role, in the anticipated Gupta nomination. Yet, he is lobbying the Senate and the incoming president to reject Gupta.

    In a “Dear Colleague” letter on Wednesday, Conyers — a major proponent of universal healthcare — denounced Gupta and asked members to sign a letter to Obama urging the president-elect not to nominate the TV personality.




    Conyers is an idiot. To attack an appointment over an argument with that traitor Michael moore? Shame on him.


    I am with Obama on this. Appoint Gupta, now I know he went after moore. I like him.

    I didn't realize that a fat guy with a camera posed such a threat to you.

    I did not realize your need to defend a fat guy with a camera against internet posters was such a calling to you.

    I just think it's a bit absurd to the call the guy a traitor. Is he an extreme liberal? Sure. Does he have an obvious agenda and likes to capitalize off of it? Absolutely. It just seems a bit petty and childish to see someone say "Now I like Gupta because he went against Moore, so there!" If you don't like Moore, don't watch his movies.

    This is a good reference to see where I amn coming from. But yeah, call me petty and childish while behaving "petty and childish", its cool.

    More of our soldiers are dying as a result of Moore and his movie, and America is increasingly being threatened because of Moore's turncoat treachery. By falsely portraying our government in a negative light, as liars and manipulators, as well as our troops as baby killers and torturers, he incites blood-thirsty terrorists to strike at our homeland, our citizens and military personnel in an effort to weaken America's resolve to fight on to victory

    Um...did you even see Fahrenheit 9/11? I assume that's the movie you are referring to. It's chock full of manipulation and agenda, but not once does he attack the troops or call them "baby killers" or "torturers". He mainly goes after politicians, particularly Conservatives. Like I said, he has a clear partisan agenda, but don't just start making up crap.

    And how is criticizing your post petty and childish? I'm not the one who feels threatened by a fat man with a camera who makes stupid politically driven movies.

    And even if he did make some offhanded comment calling the troops baby killers and criticized the hell out of them, it still doesn't make him a traitor. It's called freedom of speech.

    Cool, how about the actual topic. What do you think of Conyers opposing someone because they dare critisize the fat man with a camera?

    It was more than that. I don't know if you saw the original report that is being referenced here, but Gupta said that Moore fudged his facts in the movie Sicko. It was later found out that Gupta and CNN were wrong. I think it's quite absurd to use that solely as the reason to oppose Gupta as Surgeon General. However, people in politics are notoriously absurd, so it doesn't surprise me.
