    No you didn't. Here, I'll repeat the rewording of my posts again for those that are a bit slow. No need for anyone but Jallman to read this post, the rest of you carry on:

    I said nothing remotely close to saying his medical license had anything to do with his politics. I have said that his expression of his politics have everything to do with his ethics and professionalism. I have said this would be true whether he was a conservative or liberal. I have said that his ethics and unprofessionalism would preclude my using him as my caregiver.

    I work in technology. Occasionally, I indulge myself by talking about politics with coworkers. It only sometimes gets contentious, but I always regret it, because I think it is unprofessional. So, through that lense, I observe this doctor. I can't help but be disgusted.

    This disgust 'clouds my view' as to whether I feel I could trust him. I conclude that I could not.

    Re: Doctor tells Obama supporters: Go elsewhere for health care

    fortunately, that doctor's politically motivated action is atypical of most medical practitioners
    but that does not make his action anything other than distasteful
    i would anticipate his decision to dismiss over 50% of his patient load will ultimately affect his financial condition
    but that is the consequence of his choice; one he is entitled to make

    and while i am pro choice, i cannot find that it is reasonable to expect someone who is morally opposed to abortions to perform one
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    If he had a question on the medical form asking you who you voted for, then he would have crossed a line. But this is just a political point being driven home, albeit in a very cras way.
    Right. He doesn't know who I voted for. To me, that's not the point. The fact that he was unprofessional enough, in my opinion, to put up such an immature sign, I wouldn't feel comfortable going to a doctor who exhibited such unprofessional behavior. If I saw a doctor call someone stupid, I wouldn't go to that doctor. If I saw a doctor give someone the finger, I wouldn't go to that doctor. My confidence in that person as a medical professional would be lost. That's how I feel about the sign. That's just me.

    Doctors like anyone else including but not limited to Politicians (who can and do vote themselves pay increases regardless the state of the economy) dislike their income being hit by Political measures.

    The President WILL reverse the cuts in Medicare payments to Doctors, this will inevitably lead to this Healthcare bill costing Billions more than Obama economists had initially enthusiastically proclaimed.

    Oh what glorious times we live in where Politicians preach CHANGE, yet go about enriching themselves at the expense of everyone else, even those who voted them into office in the first place.

    Why should he, the AMA doesn't?

    Plus it's his professional duties that are currently being politicized.
