Obama Using Human Tragedy As a Prop Once Again; Eulogizes Woman Buried in Obama T-Shirt
Flopping Aces ^ | 02-05-10 | Curt

Dude....seriously? (skip ahead to the 8 minute mark)

[VIDEO AT SITE]

At first glance you would swear that this has to be a Onion piece, but no......it's real

I got a letter -- I got a note today from one of my staff -- they forwarded it to me -- from a woman in St. Louis who had been part of our campaign, very active, who had passed away from breast cancer. She didn't have insurance. She couldn't afford it, so she had put off having the kind of exams that she needed. And she had fought a tough battle for four years. All through the campaign she was fighting it, but finally she succumbed to it. And she insisted she's going to be buried in an Obama t-shirt.

Un-freakin-real.

Remember this?

"I am not a ideologue"

Didn't take long to smash that assertion.

He has been using people as props for quite sometime so I guess we shouldn't be surprised:

But come on! Why aren't the MSM talking heads attacking him for this shameless promotion? You think they would of let Bush off the hook?

This isn’t using people as props. This is using DEAD people as props. What sane person would tell that story about themselves? Even dead people are all about him.

This is why political campaigns should be required to provide healthcare to their "very active" workers. BO should have made sure that this woman had healthcare.

she could not afford healthcare but she could afford to volunteer “very actively” in his campaign. Maybe if we weren't giving free healthcare to illegal aliens then Americans would not have to pay for illegals care and their own.

This guy is a psycho. He and Clinton are both incredible narcissists.

I totally agree. He couldn’t ‘remember her name’. Fake, fake, fake. Just like his ‘bracelet’ during the campaign.....and every thing else he does. Just ‘props’ and ‘false advertising’.

Well gee O'lamo.

Couldn't you and your rich Democrat donors pony up the funds to get this woman "the kind of exams that she needed"?

After all, she was a "very active" part of your campaign.

And you leftists are always rambling on about how "sensitive" and "caring" you are.

Yet you did nothing to help her?

As usual, you leftists are hot to trot when spending other people's money, but won't spend a dime of your own to save the life of those you "care deeply about".

I want someone from the media to ask the white house to reveal the name of the person Obama was talking about. Another question need to be ask is why didn’t the Obama campaign do something to help her if they knew she had breast cancer? Why didn’t the campaign take some of the campaign money and help this lady out. NO ONE...not even the republicans will take exception to that. I smell something rotten in this story.

They’ll count her votes as long as she wears the t-shirt.
