…And then proceeds to talk to them like they were real doctors.
“Nobody has more credibility with the American people on this issue [Health Care Reform] than you do,” Obama told his guests.
Ugh. They wish they had that much credibility.
In order to sell his Health Care Reform, Obama invited fake physicians to the White House with one request: Wear your white lab coat.
Some of the fake doctors must have thought he was joking as many of them ‘forgot’ to bring their lab coats with them. Don’t worry though, the White House is full of empty, white coats. From the New York Post:
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.
How on earth did the President get grown, adult, American citizens to go along with this scheme? It blows my mind people are willingly going along with this propaganda.
Hot Air brings up a good point: Why was the New York Post the only main-stream media outlet to have posted this story?
Clearly, creating a false atmosphere of support – while covering this up from the American people – reveals that this health care legislation isn’t as good as the Left are making it out to be. Conservative members, such as Sarah Palin, aren’t afraid to voice the truth regarding the Left’s Health Care Reform. Additionally, some elected members from the GOP stood up to this propaganda:
The Republican National Committee shot back with a response from Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), who was an orthopedic surgeon before being elected to Congress.
“Today, the president wants you to believe that the medical community supports his government takeover of health care. Don’t be fooled,” Price said.
He said he had spoken to “thousands of my colleagues” who oppose the Democrats’ legislation.
I guess it is October. Maybe some of those physicians can use those white coats on Halloween 😉
