Skip to comments.White House's Botched "Op"
Posted on 10/06/2009 5:04:18 AM PDT by RetroSexual
President Obama yesterday rolled out the red carpet -- and handed out doctors' white coats as well, just so nobody missed his hard-sell health-care message.
In a heavy-handed attempt at reviving support for health-care reform, the White House orchestrated a massive photo op to buttress its claim that front-line physicians support Obama.
A sea of 150 white-coated doctors, all enthusiastically supportive of the president and representing all 50 states, looked as if they were at a costume party as they posed in the Rose Garden before hearing Obama's pitch for the Democratic overhaul bills moving through Congress.

I believe the 150 might be real... Of course, they were all the doctors they could find across ALL 50 states
“”When you cut through all the noise and all the distractions that are out there, I think what’s most telling is that some of the people who are most supportive of reform are the very medical professionals who know the health-care system best,” the president said.”
And some of the biggest supporters of mega-government are the captains of mega-industry who support Corporate Socialism. It isn’t that they believe the system will run better. It is that they want monopolistic control.
The doctors who support this are no different. They are first and foremost leftists/liberals who believe in mega-government and socialism. The effect that this has on actual medical care is of minor importance.
Obama is so frikkin QUEER!!!
Everything that idiot does is a scam.
Maybe they stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night?
Really stupid theater
I wish someone would investigate and find out just how many, if any, of those were actually doctors.
My money says there were some in the crowd who were actors.
Lab techs wear lab coats too. (Makes sense, right?)
Maybe they’re lab techs.
(But if they’re fakes, can you be arrested for wearing a lab coat without a license?)
What, Barruh couldn’t find any doctors to buy his crap in the other seven states?
How many of these ‘physicians’ were the kind who show up on middle-of-the-night infomercials extolling the virtues of the latest erectile dysfunction pill, colon cleanser, hair loss treatment, etc.?
I laughed when I saw this.What an outrageous joke.Hey bamster,Is that all the socialist “docs” you could find?
That’s funny as hell.
Hey, wait a minute, I paid for that.
Best line of the morning...
People who pretend to be doctors on tv being lectured by a guy who plays president on tv.
Things didnt start out so good for Nathan. The public was already growing weary of they spicy mystery meat tubes and Nathans low 5 cent price fueled rumors that his dogs were made from inferior dog and horse meat. In a move to win the publics trust, Nathan hired people wearing lab coats and stethoscopes to stand in front of his restaurant eating hotdogs.
The public bought it and he capitalized on it with signs that boasted If doctors eat our hot dogs, you know theyre good! So instead of fading from the streets of Coney Island, he was able to generate the momentum that lead to a Hot Dog empire and household name.
I was just about to post that... The weirdo with no suit and tie (under the lab coat he is wearing a flannel) standing next to Obambi does NOT look like a doctor I would want to go to...
That scene of white coats reminds me of the time Clinton staged the march across the WH lawn flanked with an entourage of military.
Remember how ballistic the pressers went when Bush ‘staged’ the live conference from Iraq?
Now we’d like a shot of the press corps in their bibs.
One of the dumbest commercials ever was a group of white-coated techies in the back of a moving semi-trailer throwing junk in front of a car with a tire they were advertising.
Missed that one. Just lucky, I guess....!
Call the White House on Monday! Congressman Tom Price, M.D. is urging everyone to call the White House this Monday October 5th. The White House phone number is 202-456-1414. Let the President know that you do not want government medicine. CLICK HERE for video of Dr. Price explaining what to do on Monday.
Here is what he is asking us to do:
1. CALL THE WHITE HOUSE ON MONDAY! The President is meeting with a hand picked group of docs who agree with him. He needs to hear from doctors in the community who disagree with him. CALL ON MONDAY TO: 202-456-1414
2. Encourage your Physician Colleagues to do the same. Forward this email to your medical associations, post the phone number of doctor dining room bulletin boards and talk to your colleagues in the corridor.
3. ENCOURAGE YOUR PATIENTS TO CALL THE WHITE HOUSE TO SAY "NO TO MANDATES, RATIONING, and THE PUBLIC OPTION".
The result of this email: You Jammed Up the White House Phone Lines on Monday.
My husband called twice. I emailed them. More call to action today at the link.
Call for the “men in white coats” on 0bama. These lickspittle doctors should be in straitjackets as well.
I personally thought they looked like a bunch of employees of an insane asylum....
It would be nice to see a list of the attendees and the focus of their practices.
I want to know who in the White House is actually in charge of orchestrating all these photo ops. I’m sure it’s several individuals. Every time Bozo is publicly campaigning for some issue they have to truck ‘em in by the busloads. There’s probably a whole department in charge of this stuff. Can we find out? Let’s!!!
Obama goes to great lengths to fly in a MD’s who agree with him. Perhaps, if we had the MD’s names we could check on these MD’s? Why check on these MD’s? I am leary of any doctor who prefers being paid similar to medicare allowable charges vs. actual charges.
And yet, close to 40% of physicians polled indicated that they would close their practices if Zerocare passes.
Not exactly a ringing endorsement, is it?
The doctors I have spoken with are hell no against it. And I have talked to several.
Hmmmm, seems like it was only a month ago that Obama was saying that doctors (and I paraphrase here) were cutting off patients' legs so they could make $60,000 when all that was required was an aspirin.
What is it Zero, do they have credibility or, are they just a bunch of money hungry capitalist performing unnecessary procedures to pad their bank accounts?
These guys are Doctors for America, which is the relabel of Doctors for Obama, who donated heavily to the Obama campaign in 2008.
Not to mention, the Democrats have been caught red-handed so many times stocking impostors at the townhalls, they need to provide proof going forward.
I know one who is a flaming lib. I’m sure he’s probably for it. But he is a lib first and foremost. The jackass wouldn’t even check his own son’s ear for an ear infection because he thinks antibiotics are used too much. The kid was in agony.
I’m sure a lot of doctors would have to think twice if the government offered to pay off all medical-school costs for signing on. Frightening, I know. But some of them are carrying bills of 2-300 thousand.
It would also be nice to see who paid for these "doctors" to fly into Washington,D.C. from all 50 (or is it 57?) states? Most doctors I know would not have time on a weekday - to leave their practice for such a staged stunt... they are too busy with their patients.
Very fishy.... is that web-site for "Fishy" still operational???
The video shows a couple docs who still don’t have on a white coat, despite being handed them by the WH idiots. There is no reason to wear a white coat outside of the hospital or clinic. Would they wear a lab coat to the mall? A political function is no different. This was just silly. Plus I wouldn’t want to sit outside on a nasty folding chair in a white coat.
