    Good Lord what a laughable excercise in political futility!

    Team Obama invites 150 doctors to the White House for a pro-public option photo op and hands them all white coats to wear.

    Oy Vey...

    ____

    WASHINGTON -- 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.

    PHOTOS: OBAMA'S BOTCHED PHOTO OP

    OBAMA LIFTS HEALTH CARE ADDRESS -- FROM HIMSELF

    A sea of 150 white-coated doctors, all enthusiastically supportive of the president and representing all 50 states, looked as if they were at a costume party as they posed in the Rose Garden before hearing Obama's pitch for the Democratic overhaul bills moving through Congress.



    OOPS! A crowd of 150 doctors gathers in the Rose Garden to support the health-care overhaul -- as White House staffers scramble to hand out camera-ready white coats to those who forgot their own.

    The physicians, all invited guests, were told to bring their white lab coats to make sure that TV cameras captured the image.

    But some docs apparently forgot, failing to meet the White House dress code by showing up in business suits or dresses.

    So the White House rustled up white coats for them and handed them to the suited physicians who had taken seats in the sun-splashed lawn area.

    See photos of White House staff passing out the white garments - they look like hoods.

    All in all, a total failure.

    Also, it appears Obama has changed his teleprompter to a special podium version. That would explain why he looks down so much now when he speaks...

    Good thread!
    Did you happen to catch the reports on both CNN and FOX this morning where over 40 of the doctors who had been invited had no idea why they had been invited. And that they in no way supported this fiasco of a healthcare plan?
    That fiasco yesterday was nothing more than another Obama dog and pony show. And the ignorant libs buy into that shit. Too freakin' funny!

    I don't get it. Are you calling the doctors members of the KKK?

    You are complaining about seeing racial issues where they don't exist? You?
