Skip to comments.Obama: 'She insisted she's going to be buried in an Obama t-shirt' (video at source)

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.

The other freeper was right, a while ago. Some reporter should try to find this person.
I call complete BS.
Who needs a reporter...we’re freepers dammit!
Get those search engines going!
What a pathetic sonuvabitch. 0bama’s not a joke, he’s a freakin PUNCHLINE!
Obama needs to use his Thorazine suppositories.
Ack. I could’ve gone all day without that visual.
>>The other freeper was right, a while ago. Some reporter should try to find this person.
Oh you! Obowma got this “person” the same way he got the 9.7% unemployment rate....FROM HIS ASS.
Maybe a corpsman will attend.
I’m sure that in a short span of time, there will be some Federal law requiring us all to be buried with Obama tee shirts on.....
Obama the deficit fighter! The budget cutter!
Doesn’t his narcissism inspire you? (to barf)
I would like to be buried with an Obama t-shirt. If I’m going to feed the worms, I may as well give them something to wipe their butts with, too.
The woman cited by Obama is now a Corpse Woman . . .
So, the campaign's refusal to cover the insurance needs of a campaign worker caused her death.
Best laugh I’ve had all day! thanks
