150 flew over the cuckoo’s nest for Obamacare

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.

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.

This is pretty sad.  They should have just hired a bunch of extras.

    This health care railroading is getting more and more depressing.

    Don’t guess they’ll post it 72 hours beforehand? Naw, don’t think they well. They are pathetic.

    What I don’t understand about all the media towing the governments line. This is mainly because their corporate masters are in bed with this administration. What I don’t get about these on air personalities, they don’t get that this doesn’t just happen to us, it’s going to happen to them, and their families too. So fact check SNL all day and night. Are they too stupid to figure out if bad legislation passes their paychecks are going to get docked more like everyone elses? And their health care and that of their family’s health care goes down too? Nobody is that dumb…really they probably make more money as a tv pundit anchor ect than Average Americans..so their paychecks are going to be docked even more because of their Income.

    Really can the fringe media be this stupid to promote regressive taxes for worse coverage?

    I would quit CNN et al., before I let them sell me down the river. Corporate Masters or Not. If they think this legislation isn’t going to hurt them personally, I would recommend cat scans to see if their is any brain activity LOL!

    I think Imus In The Morning needs it’s own Coffee Sponsor. There is still Dunkin Doughnuts or McCafe….don’t know if Imus would go for McDonalds…what am I saying he would sell ice to Eskimos LOL!

    I posted on the old thread, sorry.

    Ginger, yes they are pathetic but these people are evil! Seriously. Nothing surprises me anymore – our President, his Administration and our corrupt media. They don’t care about us, simple as that. They do not care about the country or our lives and won’t listen. They won’t even allow the Bill to be read! This is something that will affect all of us for the rest of our lives and they won’t even let anyone read it. And the poor men in Afghanistan dying for what? They’re being slaughtered because of the pc way they’re fighting.

    Liberal Washington Post columnist asks:
    Does Obama have the backbone?

    (Richard Cohen) This is the president we now have: He inspires lots of affection but not a lot of awe. It is the latter, though, that matters most in international affairs …

    Let’s hope this meeting isn’t the start of Fox being neutered.

    On a recent visit to New York, White House adviser David Axelrod met over coffee with Roger Ailes, the president of the Fox News Network, which President Obama has described as a “television station that is entirely devoted to attacking my administration.”

    According to accounts from both the White House and Fox News, the meeting was cordial. “I’ve known Roger for a long time,” Axelrod told TIME in an email on Monday. “We chatted from time to time during the campaign. I was going to be in NY, so we got together for a cup of coffee.”

    Both Axelrod and a spokeswoman for Ailes declined to further discuss the contents of the conversation.

    This Letterman thing is getting worse and worse. i don’t see how CBS is out of this, even if he does own his company, because this was all taking place on CBS property. Plus, from what he said last night that his wife was deeply hurt, she knew nothing about this, that he was cheating on her all the 21 years. His boy is about 7, I think. Makes me wonder why he suddenly married her in March. The workers who were not involved should sue CBS because they allowed a hostile work environment.

    “”Skirt-chasing funnyman David Letterman’s restricted office at his Midtown studio has all the trimmings for a bachelor on the prowl, including a fold-out couch and a kitchen, The Post has learned.

    CBS bought the Ed Sullivan Theater for $4 million after inking a deal to bring Letterman over from NBC to the Tiffany Network in 1993, according to reports at the time. Additionally, the studio spent more than $4 million to rehab the storied venue.””

    Mel, I sure hope that meeting between Ailes and Axelrod does not mean anything. I think if they are able to bring fox under their control, we will be in real trouble.

    I don’t know, Shep Smith just sounded like an Obmacare shill on his show – attacking a Repub,. He lied or he was spewing Obama talking points. I had heard from people that he’s a lib Obama supporter all the way so maybe he’s just decided to do their talking points all of the sudden. I’ll try to find the video because you will be shocked.

    Do not underestimate this Administration. They want to control everything and Fox is the ONLY tv station who doesn’t lie.

    I know they are and that is why it would be a diaster if they were bought off or whatever you want to call it. Bill O’reilly, you can’t depend on him. I have heard Shep get pretty hostile before, so I don’t know.

    He and Geraldo may be working from the inside. But I hope not.

    I can’t bear to think about the message being controled to the extent CNN and MSNBC is. That would be mind control for sure. It’s sick. CNN is investigating an SNL skit instead of ACORN, and Holder wants to prosecute the CIA.

    Fox is supposed to be fair & balanced unless you’re Hannity or Beck who are commentators and always play the conservative role when doing a discussion. Shep (come out of the closet, Shep, we know!) is supposed to do news, not promote an agenda. Geraldo is a flaming lib but doesn’t hid it and O’Reilly is only out to make himself look good.

    Castro’s Cuba here we come! Obama seems to be following Castro to a T, his healthcare is identical, muzzling the media, etc.

    TGIF (almost)..long week. All the news is depressing and it seems we’re leaderless.

    So who put up the IITM Facebook Page? I assume it is not really him. It has been such a pleasure to hear his voice again in the morning. They all seem very comfortable and happy. Even my husband doesn’t change the channel anymore to put on ESPN to annoy me. Warner gives him the sports stuff he likes. I love that libs who hate Fox are coming – Frank Rich next week.

    I heard from someone in Boston years ago that he’s a liberal and gay, not that I care about his sexual preference but he’s supposed to be a news guy, not a commentator! I’ve noticed he’s gotten more and more slanted to the left over the past year….now he’s doing Obama’s talking points.
