President Obama has chosen the person he wants to head up the FDA:

In his weekly address to the nation Saturday, President Obama announced his choice of Dr. Margaret Hamburg to lead the Food and Drug Administration.

“From her research on infectious disease at the National Institutes of Health to her work on public health at the Department of Health and Human Services to her leadership on biodefense at the Nuclear Threat Initiative, Dr. Hamburg brings to this vital position not only a reputation of integrity but a record of achievement in making Americans safer and more secure,” Obama said.

According to the White House, Hamburg was one of the youngest people ever elected to the National Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Medicine.

Hamburg’s nomination now goes to the U.S. Senate for confirmation.

  • mypresidentisblack

    Y’all should have done your research and mentioned that her mother was the first African-American woman to graduate from Vassar College

  • reddnwood

    I’m down with my Bro President Barack Obama for sure but he dayum doesn’t believe in having too many blacks in his cabinet…especially black men! Just an observation.

  • AJ

    @ reddnwood

    And not a white president before him ever thought there were too many whites in their cabinet. Barack is making it happen for his people just like they do for theirs.

  • always knew

    I would like to see more qualified blacks, in that cabinet…Hell, with more of my money going through taxes, I would like to know that SOMEONE is geting some form of help… (I Hope)…

  • jamalk

    Is that Tracee ellis Ross??

  • Stepping' lightly like a Woodpecker wit a headache

    I just hope the sista paid her taxes

    I’m definitely doing more research, as I did before campaigning for and voting for President Obama. There is no doubt in my mind President Obama has the country’s best interest at heart.

    @Dubya…if you think contrived information is going to deter the inevitable, you have another thing coming. You are what I called…mislead. You take information for face value and run with it, you are the “mans” dream…lost soul willing to go along with “massa” plan to be protected. If Obama is deceiving us, what hell did George Bush do? Seriously, there is nothing you or anyone else could say to change my opinion, so stop wasting your breath, better yet…never mind, what I was going to say is unnecessary, JUST STOP! We don’t need any more of you divisive people attempting to separate people, get a hobby, become employed, but don’t evoke fear, lies, and hate!!!

    I don’t care what her race. I just care that she does something about all the tainted food problem that goes through the FDA unregulated.

  • Razzell Dazzell

    @BASQUIAT I COSIGN!

  • dubya

    ha ha ha…too funny razzell….

    Good now that we have someone in charge of the FDA I hope are food will be safe to eat. we’ve had too many recalls of tainted food when Bush was running things.

    though since I had a fear of eating for the last 8 years I did lose a lot of weight

    @DUBYA..PRESIDENT OBAMA…A TYRANT? MY FRIEND, YOU ARE CONFUSED. TYRANTS DON’T INCLUDE OTHERS IN HIS/HER HER RULE. THEY SEEK TO CONTROL BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS ENGAGED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, SOUGHT A BIPARTISAN APPROACH, AND IS COMMITTED TO NOT ONLY AMERICANS BUT THE WORLD. A TYRANT IS…ANY PERSON WHO EXERCISES POWER IN A CRUEL WAY. NOW YOU TELL ME WHAT PART OF PRESIDENT OBAMA IS “CRUEL?” I ENCOURAGE YOU TO CONTINUE YOUR RESEARCH, PERHAPS YOU WILL BECOME ENLIGHTENED..PERHAPS YOU WILL REALIZE THAT YOUR DESIRES ARE THE PRESIDENTS DESIRES (AND MINE. IF WE WORK TOGETHER, THEN YOUR COUNTRY, MY COUNTRY, OUR COUNTRY WILL BE RESTORED TO THE STATUS IT ONCE WAS. WON’T YOU WORK WITH ME MY FRIEND?

  • Zappy

    No, there will not be too many Blacks (men or women) in his cabinet. This guy is a politician to the core and he needs to get re-elected.

  • Sydney (Changed my Gravie)

    Ohhhh Barack, baby, don’t you know we could be so good together? With yours and my cafe au lait complected skin plus my delicate, yet feminine features, I would be a refreshing change from that dark skinned semian creature you had the mis-fortune of marrying. Think of the possibilies of making love at the Playboy Mansion? We could be two Mulattos in the Grotto. I’ll be waiting, my Prince:)

  • Crazy Ass Rodney

  • Tay

    GTFOH with that “Put more blacks in his cabinet”B.S! Blacks make up around TEN PERCENT of this county’s total population and yet some of y’all expect everything in this country to be divided down the middle 50/50. There are more Latinos in this country than Black people and Damn near as many Asians. Be happy when the BEST QUALIFIED person of ANY RACE gets put in Obama’s cabinet and stop being so damned color struck!

  • Jay

    She look like the white Tracey Ross

  • LAP

    Reddenwood….why don’t you get your facts right first…she is black you dumbass. So sorry she’s not “black” enough for you. That’s what’s wrong with us these days. You can’t put people in a box anymore.

  • SO WHAT!!!

    @ Sydney (Changed my Gravie)

    Michelle is not even dark skinned, she is brown, and not even that dark of a brown at that!! You will never get her man. GET A LIFE!!!

  • Black Woman

  • Loch Ness Monster

  • rachel
