Obama: 'She insisted she's going to be buried in an Obama t-shirt' (video at source)
washingtonexaminer.com ^ | Feb. 5, 2010 | Byron York

Posted on 02/05/2010 1:57:39 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Yes, those are the words of the president, last night at the Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Washington. After listing his administration's accomplishments and vowing that "our most urgent task is job creation," Obama pledged to keep fighting for a national health care system. "We knew this was hard," Obama said. And then he described a letter he received from a campaign worker who suffered from breast cancer and has since died:

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.

Many observers have noted that the president often seems extraordinarily self-referential. It's all about him, they say. But even those critics might be a little taken aback by the "buried in an Obama t-shirt" remark. Is it really that much about him?

Others ask how some of Obama's statements would have been covered had George W. Bush made them -- for example, if Bush had pronounced "corpsman" as "corpse-man" (as Obama did twice at the National Prayer Breakfast). Had Bush mispronounced the word so badly -- and he did say some weird things -- it's likely many commentators would have rushed to fit it into their Bush-is-stupid narrative. Now, it's Obama who's sounding strange.

Well, technically that's about the only coverage one's going to get with Obamacare...

So, the campaign's refusal to cover the insurance needs of a campaign worker caused her death.

I believe Obozo is decompensating again. He actually means that he wished for America to be buried in an Obozo t-shirt.

Assuming this fantasy was true. The woman was “very active” and part of our campaign. So was she working at a job or just working on his campaign? Did he pay her?
Could she have gotten health insurnace or paid for health insurance if she got a job or second job to buy health insurance?

Looks to me like it was her own choice to “start her own business” and not buy insurance.

She didn't have insurance. She couldn't afford it, so she had put off having the kind of exams that she needed

Clinton used the same BS tactics when he tried to pass health care reform. He even read a letter from a family who claimed to have lost everything due to medical bills.

What wasn't anticipated was that a case worker in Calif. where it happened was very familiar to that family and she called in to Rush's program to explain in detail exactly what happened.

As it turns out, the county was fully prepared to assist that family with financial aid but the family declined to even return phone calls.........

It was a democrap set up!

Byron York provides this link in his piece:

http://www.truemajority.org/aggressiveprogressive/?p=450

Some fine points: A) She HAD health insurance. She just purchased a cheap policy with a high deductible and ignored the lump in her breast for a long time. B) She wasn't 'buried' in an Obama t-shirt. She was cremated while wearing an Obama t-shirt. C) This isn't about her. This is about Obama. All politicians have their followers, but Obama chose to highlight this. If a woman sends Bill Clinton a nude picture of herself, that's about her. If Bill Clinton gives a policy speech where he talks about the nude photo he got, that's about him.

You are right. I try to avoid listening to anything he says because it is just inane rambling.

Bet that didn't take long. Let's see: apologizing, bowing, scraping....being ridiculed by the French for being a wuss...oh! and managing to tick off the left, the right and the independents all in one year. And, TA-DA, giving a Massachusetts Senate seat to the Republicans, not to mention those offices in Virginia, New Jersey....etc., etc. Blowing the Chicago Olympic bid. Making an idiot out of himself in international negotiations, just to show he really deserved the Nobel Peace Prize. Screwing the pooch with Obamacare. Proposing a budget that even embarrasses Democrats. Hey, maybe it did take awhile.

Never mind!
