Posted on 10/08/2009 2:54:33 AM PDT by Scanian
A Republican doctor-congressman mocked President Obama yesterday -- by waving his white lab coat in the air on the House floor as he lambasted a staged White House photo op with friendly doctors.
Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey skewered the massive photo op on Monday -- highlighted in The Post yesterday -- in which White House staffers handed out white coats to physicians to visually show MD support for Obama's controversial health-care overhaul.
Gingrey said a dozen GOP House doctors requested a meeting with Obama last month to discuss health care -- but got no response.

The next tea party should consist of a million people in backless examination smocks and bedroom slippers.
Better hurry and set this up. Winter in DC can be cold.
THose Doctors ought to be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be used in this crass way.
Just let us know when.
What the heck? REAL doctors on soap operas and TV commercials all carry clip boards and wear white lab coats.
You can TRUST those people because they LOOK like doctors...can’t you?
The Ministry of Truth (Chairman Obama) knows how to play the propaganda game with those who do not watch FOX news, read Free Republic and other internet sites that actually give you the real news, and people who can actually think on their own.
Obama caters to those who would gladly watch and read only FICTION and actually believe it’s real. The same people who are too lazy to read the real news...just want the MSM to give them what they want to hear.
I agree. I was really surprised they could find doctors who support this mess. The ones I know are opposed.
How many do you think were really doctors? If they are actually MDs they are probably union employees.
Three of the four doctors who stood next to Obama donated to his campaign.
Here’s a picture of an aide handing out white coats:
They looked more like meat packers.
Let me see... Washington DC filled with Tea Partiers in hospital gowns... mmmmm mmmmm mmmm.
One doc from each state and I would hazard a bet that most are emplyed in administrative or teaching positions. They are not in the trenches. All dem supporters.
There is a big population of MD’s who don’t really practice medicine where it counts. They are salaried, go to meetings, tell others what to do and have nothing in common with the practicing MD.
Docs who practice are a different breed,,independent, proud, dedicated. They would have walked out on being told to wear a white coat for a photoop.
And they could all moon the CNN reporters!
It’s dispicable what these low lifes in the white house led by the obamanation are doing.
According to Michelle Malkin, the majority of docs identified were heavy Obama donors and she traced the whole effort back to John Podesta’s group, the Center for American Progress, or whatever the hell calls it.
With or without a big tube of KY jelly?
Morticians wear white lab coats too.
