I’m Not a Doctor, But I Play One in The Rose Garden

Obama Enlists Doctors for Health Care Fight

Surrounded by doctors from around the country, President Obama pushed his health care reform efforts in the White House Rose Garden today, saying that the physicians in attendance “understand that their jobs would be a lot easier if we finally reformed our system of health insurance.”

The president covered well-trod ground in his address, pressing the importance of cutting costs, ending unfair insurance practices and eliminating paperwork and red tape. From the White House’s perspective, perhaps more important than the familiar words were the attendees: Doctors pointedly decked out in white lab coats.

You know, I was against Obamacare. But seeing Doctors – IN LAB COATS – with President Obama in the Rose Garden totally changed my mind!  I heard the Doctors at the Rose Garden came from ALL 57 STATES!!!  We best heed their advice!

I am concerned about one thing, though.  With all those Doctors around, I hope they had extra Secret Service Agents on hand to protect President Obama’s tonsils from being reaped and his feet from being lopped off.

Obama went all out on the staged-performance today, even going so far as to pass out Lab Coats (from Mark Knoller’s twitter feed – h/t JD_NYC):

Keep condescending and patronizing, President Obama. Condescend like the wind! Condescend like you’ve never condescended before! It’s totally working.

And keep up the uber-lame photo ops ..  An Emperor doesn’t look so shiny and new when everyone now sees that he’s naked.

(and work on those moobs)

    You know, I have to tell you, I really enjoy this blog and the insight from everyone who participates. I find it to be refreshing and very informative. I wish there were more blogs like it. Anyway, I felt it was about time I posted, Ive spent most of my time here just lurking and reading, but today for some reason I just felt compelled to say this.

        I want the names of those “Dr.’s” to make sure I never get treated by them…or served fries by them after they get laid off if this Obamacare gets passed.

      Obama would never allow that. How could they control Kevin Jennings when faced with such temptations….

    Give me a break…..the only time I see a doctor in a white coat is in a commercial or a soap opera! I haven’t seen mine since 1973. I wonder how many of those “DOCTORS” have S.A.G. cards?

      Heh, that’s what I was thinking…I’m not a doctor, but I do play one for the President.

      Well, a bunch of them were part of “Doctors For Obama”. To try to *still* claim to be happy with their choice, must entail some major acting skills!

    Lab coats in the Rose Garden. This White House thinks we’re all utterly bloody stupid.

    Crap, I thought his O’liness brought in a bunch of folks from the company R&D lab!

    (Disclaimer, although I have an assigned lab coat of my own, I have never worn it, except to take a Devo like photo over 25 years ago, with the hard hat and clipboard too)

    Ya know, for ANY doctor to actually support Blowbama’s mentally insane healthcare agenda really shows the decline in the acceptance standards in medical schools. I’m terrified at the thought of one of these brain-dead followers treating me for anything that might be wrong. I would expect the same kind of ignorance to facts and obvious tell-tale signs of things going wrong from Obama’s sheep. He’s already disregarded the logical advise of every person around him like Gen. McChrystal, the CBO and that scientist he had research the climate change over the next few years. What a giant insult to our intelligence. He must think we’re as stupid as he is.

      What a giant insult to our intelligence. He must think we’re as stupid as he is.

      That’s just it. He does. Well, he thinks he is Smarter Than Us ™ and that we are all ignorant rubes. His disdain and sneering contempt is growing more and more obvious. We saw it prior to the election, but others are *finally* seeing it now.

      That’s the plus side🙂

    REAL Dr.s’ generally have their name/specialty embroidered above the breast pocket of their lab coat. Sort of a “graduating from Med school” rite of passage thing.
    Do you see ANYTHING but blank, generic lab coats here?

    I found the following to be an interesting list. Remind you of anyone we know?

    He or she has a grandiose sense of self-importance (exaggerates accomplishments and demands to be considered superior without real evidence of achievement).
    He or she lives in a dream world of exceptional success, power, beauty, genius, or “perfect” love.
    He or she thinks of him- or herself as “special” or privileged, and that he or she can only be understood by other special or high-status people.
    He or she demands excessive amounts of praise or admiration from others.
    He or she feels entitled to automatic deference, compliance , or favorable treatment from others.
    He or she is exploitative towards others and takes advantage of them.
    He or she lacks empathy and does not recognize or identify with others’ feelings.
    He or she is frequently envious of others or thinks that they are envious of him or her.
    He or she “has an attitude” or frequently acts in haughty or arrogant ways.

    Meh?? He found a hand full of abortionists and libberpukes that wanted a pic taken standing with the most useless POS to EVER inhabit the White House…

    Doesn’t mean Obama is right, it means he surrounded himself with fools just like himself…

    EPIC FAIL!!🙂

    Maybe we’re giving Obama too much credit. How do we know the lab coat wasn’t meant to mean biologist? Maybe Obama just has a really confused message about health insurance.

    I couldn’t even watch it. Everytime an anchor on FNC says “and now we’re going live to the President” I change the channel..usually to fishing or golf, because I rather watch just about anything than that doofus.

    So I appreciate your keeping me up to date and entertaining me all at the same time!!

    I’ve always said that when out-right Socialism comes to America, it will come wearing a White Lab Coat . And telling you to bend over.

    I never meant it *literally* but I suppose now that I should have!

    White coats??? They were coming to take him away!

    I found it interesting that none of the networks (not even Fox) cross-referenced this with the voluntary gathering of Doctors who oppose Obama-Care from a week or so ago. Each Doctor in attendance had been “elected” to represent hundreds of doctors from their respective areas of the country and areas of expertise.

    I suspect that the medical professionals who support ObamaCare are the ones who have been ripping off Medi-Care for years and figure to get even richer off of an expanded government program.

      Oh, that’s a great point! Thanks Steven!

  16. October 12, 2009 1:51 pm

    so, you are all happy with the health care system that we have now???

    • snarkandboobs permalink*
      October 12, 2009 3:39 pm

      Yup, that’s *exactly* what that post said.

      Sigh.

      In little words, so as to be easily understood:

      Opposing socialized medicine does not mean one “wants people to die”. Nor does it mean that one wants the status quo.

      google is your friend. You’ll find lots of suggestions for reform that would actually *work*. I’ll give you a hint. Start with Senator DeMint.
