PHOTOS: OBAMA'S BOTCHED PHOTO OP

OBAMA LIFTS HEALTH CARE ADDRESS -- FROM HIMSELF

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.

OOPS! A crowd of 150 doctors gathers in the Rose Garden to support the health-care overhaul -- as White House staffers scramble to hand out camera-ready white coats to those who forgot their own.

The physicians, all invited guests, were told to bring their white lab coats to make sure that TV cameras

But some docs apparently forgot, failing to meet the White House dress code by showing up in business suits or dresses.

So the White House rustled up white coats for them and handed them to the suited physicians who had taken seats in the sun-splashed lawn area.

If ANY of them are in the medical field, THEY are the ones you would NEVER, EVER want to seek medical care for.

Can you say Dr. Mangle?

Can you say, drum roll, Fr. Kevorkian?

Or how about Nurse Ratchet from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?

Evil attracts evil.

Anyone ever notice that only DEMOCRAT presidents do these blatantly phony and foolish things like this???

Clinton had so many phony photo ops and now obama too.

Never saw the Bush’s or Reagan or even Carter do this kind of stuff.

It’s SOOOOOOOOOOOOO childish and stupid.

Most of 'em turned out to be 0bama donors as well, so the answer is likely "yes, as long as somebody else paid for them."

The article does not say. But this is interesting...

"Underlying the strictly photo-op nature of the event, The Associated Press noted that Obama broke no new ground in his remarks."

Brings part of an old song to mind:

“They’re coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!
They’re coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa
To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and I’ll be
happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they’re
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!! “

My question about all of this was “How many of these people are actually doctors?”

How can we tell if they didn’t have stand-in ACORNers pose as doctors.

Is there a list?

We should be able to find out exactly who was at the White House.

disturbing psy-op propaganda. What they say or what obama says isn’t nearly as important as what people see. See a bunch of guys in suits, people think money/business and don’t trust that group with health decisions. See a bunch of white-coat md’s and the reaction is much more favorable, at a subconscious level. the assumption is doctors care about YOU, suits care about money, thus obama passes out white coats....

Rush Limbaugh used to use a parody of that “song” to mock Ross Perot during the 1992 Presidential campaign. My son, who was 4 at the time, used to run out of the room screaming crying in fear every time it came on the radio.

Did some cking on the doctor from MS. Looks like she works at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Children’s Project. Their website states:
The Mississippi Gulf Coast Children’s Health Project is a joint venture between the Children’s Health Fund and Coastal Family Health.

Coastal Family Health Center has formed a unique partnership with The Children’s Health Fund (CHF). The Children’s Health Fund is a National Network of 21 programs that, for over twenty years, has provided medical homes for at-risk children and adolescents around the country via mobile units and fixed-site clinics. CHF forms affiliations with academic and medical institutions to ensure quality care for the children served.

Would imagine they eat at the public trough anyway.

Ok I am in Texas so here is the skinny on the Texas guy…

Dr. Winfred Parnell: More than $5,700 in donations to Democrats since 2001.

Member of “Doctors for America” which was originally “Doctors for Øbama “ or a spin-off of Doctors for Obama, a 2008 campaign arm that aggressively pushed the Democrats' government health care takeover.

http://www.vitals.com/frame?url=http%3A%2F%2Fnews.yahoo.com%2Fs%2Fuc%2F20091007%2Fcm_uc_crmmax%2Fop_1911540

In other words the good Dr. Parnell is not non-partisan, he is totally in the tank with the communists.

I noticed that most of the doctors listed are from blue states. Dr Winfred Parnell is one of the few from a red state. He is an OB/GYN at Medical City in Dallas.

http://www.carlosparnellmd.com/dr_parnell.htm

Dr Parnell was also a speaker at the 09/13/09 event “Who Would Jesus Insure” at the Dallas Peace Center. This event was sponsored by Dallas Area Christian Progressive Alliance, Dallas Peace Center and North Texas Jobs With Justice.
