Obama’s Socialist Doctors Photo Op: Fail

The teleprompter presidency again degenerated into farce yesterday when it staged a spectacle intended to create the impression that doctors welcome absorption into Comrade Obama’s socialist blob:

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.

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.

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.

If it’s going to be that phony, why not just round up left-wing social workers and pretend they are doctors, Sheila Jackson Lee style?

Not all doctors with an opinion on socialized medicine were recruited on your dime from around the country and brought in by Big Government to serve as props. Others have shown up on their own accord. Their White Coats weren’t handed to them by White House stage directors. Somehow I doubt they got as much coverage from the liberal establishment media. Via Looking at the Left, this was the scene in front of the Capitol on September 10:
