Some Problems with Oz
Nov 5, 2022

As a former TV personality, like Donald Trump, R candidate Mehmet Oz is too accustomed to speaking fast and furious.

• During the height of the pandemic, “Schools are a very appetizing opportunity. I just saw a nice piece in The Lancet arguing the opening of schools may only cost us 2 to 3%, in terms of total mortality. Any, you know, any life is a life lost, but … that might be a tradeoff some folks would consider” (Washington Post, 4/15/20).

That would be a tradeoff of around one million American children a year. After severe criticism he did backtrack, but that his mind even contains such a callous and seat-of-the-pants thought is what counts.

• During the debate with John Fetterman; “I want women, doctors [and] local political leaders … letting the democracy that’s always allowed our nation to thrive, to put the best ideas forward so states can decide for themselves” (Newsweek, 10/25/22). Did he think he could waffle (again) on an issue like abortion?

And which “local political leaders” did he have in mind? As Rep. Danielle Friel Otten (D-155) wrote in reaction: “I really like my current township supervisors. I still definitely don’t want them involved in my OBGYN decisions, or any other decisions about my health or personal life. As your state representative, I don’t want to be involved in those decisions either.

And those two examples are in medical matters that one would expect a doctor to have thought adequately about before speaking!

While his opponent seems afflicted with foot-in-mouth disease, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, who has long experience in public office, speaks deliberately and thinks first!

To say nothing of Oz’s expensive problems with the truth (image)!
