ObamaFail: The Healthcare News Conference
Columbia Conservative Examiner ^ | July 23, 2009 | Anthony G. Martin

Posted on 07/22/2009 10:02:10 PM PDT by Welshman007

During his news conference Wednesday night, Barack Obama failed to make a compelling case for the implementation of his much-touted government takeover of healthcare. Several reasons are readily apparent:

Lord willing Obamacare died tonight. Obamessiahs SCAM WOW no news no specifics one hour waste of time performance tonight killed any hopes of passage. The man is clearly out of his mind promoting delusions of socialist health care grandeur with no SPECIFICS, no plan, no way of paying for it and government lackey bureaucrats in Washington in control of all of our PRIVATE medical records making arbitrary life and death medical decisions based upon their idea as to who should live or die" Granddad and Grandma are too old for a hip replacement, too old for a pace maker, take a pain pill, lie down shut up and DIE! Oh, Susie, a mother of four has cancer, TOO COSTLY to treat, take a pain pill, lie down, shut up and DIE!

The American public is finally waking up to the fact that the SHAM WOW, SCAM WOW president who has no legit birth certificate is nothing but a glorified anti-American Marxist Socialist who HAS NO CLOTHES!

Never mind his attempt to ignite a race war and his slanderous claim against medical physicians.

A very good assessment. Obama very clearly and repeatedly refused to engage any of the difficult issues. He simply would not address the sticking points, just blandly reassured us that somehow he would take care of us peasants with healthcare for all at no extra cost. Just trust him.

He was not at all convincing, and his real audience—the wavering democrat congresscritters—were not likely to come away comforted.

The birth certificate issue will NEVER go away because Obamessiah has never, ever produced one and he along with his legal minions are doing everyghing in their power, including spending over a MILLION DOLLARS in legal fees to keep from producing a $10 copy of a legit birth certificate. Why do this IF YOU ARE NOT TRYING TO HIDE THE TRUTH FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?

I see tonight’s over-reach train wreck as a twofer.

First it assign the death warrant to the Failed Government takeover of the Medical Industry AND it destroys the phony media orchestrated “image” he had as being a smart, intellectual, god-like being of perfection.

” his slanderous claim against medical physicians.”

I’m not a doctor, my wife’s an RN, though
but, I just couldn’t believe that blanket slam against all doctors.

And he wants them to join with him, incredible.

He stated he wouldn’t sign a bill if it wasn’t revenue neutral and if didn’t bring down health costs,
WELL, that pretty much eliminates the current bills!!!

I've never bought into the birth certificate controversy. It just seems too bizarre and unlikely.

On the other hand, it would seem to be a VERY small matter for him to put the matter to rest. So why hasn't he?

At the very least, Obama is proving to be his own worst enemy.

Well, I’ve got to say, it was a pathetic performance by Obama tonight. He definitely was not on his “A” game.

Healthcare is a big complex piece of the economy and people’s lives. It is so absurd to think that we’re going to overhaul healthcare, provide for the uninsured, provide better quality care at a lower cost, and do all this without any dislocations or unintended consequences.

I’m alarmed at the talk recently about “end of life” counseling. What’s that all about?

And what’s all this talk about kids who need surgery just have allergies, and should be treated for allergies?

And what’s this talk about doctors wanting to perform surgery when somebody just needs allergy meds or vitamins? And that doctors only perform surgery to get more money from the allegedly corrupt existing healthcare system??????

And what’s with this talk of implying that there are only two choices — Obama’s way or the status quo? Most conservatives agree that changes should be made in healthcare access and funding. But almost all conservatives, and apparently even moderates and liberals, are squeamish about a gargantuan government bureaucracy making the healthcare decisions for all of us.

I always quip that it's because his birth certificate contains an exceedingly embarrassing typo -- such as listing his race as "white" or his gender as "female". :-)

He's just vain enough to let it get to him...

Cheers!

"Lord willing Obamacare died tonight."

The Dr. Evil Version of Obama Care has died I believe.

Now (if we are really luck) the Democrats will circle the wagons and pass the "Mini-me" version which will be a bunch of regulations that will never be enforced because they will have no method of enforcement written into the bill.

Or as Shakespeare said: “A tale told by an idiot -- full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

The explosion will occur when the libs in DC and the msm realize that zero’s ship is sinking with them on it. They will suddenly come out saying that they were duped and let him go down by himself. The longer they wait the more damage will be done to them politically. There will be some dem who will realize that zero is going to kill his chance of being reelected, then all hell will break lose. IMHO.

Excerpt:

Obama obviously still has an immature, thin skin for someone in public office. He simply can't get over the fact that Republicans are telling the truth about this proposed disaster for our nation and its finances, and he seems to think S.C. Senator Jim DeMint wants the healthcare proposal to fail 'just so Obama can meet his Waterloo.'

What a joke. That response is not one of an adult but of an adolescent who never grew up. Obama claims 'this is not about me,' yet when anyone criticizes it, it suddenly becomes 'all about him...'

Thanks for the ping.

I added the keyword “4thgrader” to the keyword list.

Please do the same for future or past articles that show Obama could not compete on the the show ‘Are you smarter than a 5th Grader’.

The slam against doctors and nurses really made my blood boil! I’ve worked around MDs and RNs for over 30 years and have seen the dedication to patient care. Sure, I’ve seen a very few who probably shouldn’t have gone into the profession in the first place, but each and every profession has those types of people.

I’ve also seen what happens to patient care when it is taken out of the provider’s hands by “The Rules Which Must Be Followed”. Govt run healthcare is a recipe for disaster.

And Obama is an idiot.

So well said and spot on.

Obama seemed mad, agitated, distracted.

The rage of narcissism.

The writeup ( and more importantly, the "comments" section, which reflects the opinions of real people, not media jackals ) of Gateway Pundit are telling:

Dear Leader Seeks Support For Nationalizing Health Care... Demonizes Doctors

Dear Leader went before the American people to urge them to hand over health care to the government tonight.
Taking over the banks and the car industry was not enough for "The One."
The AP reported:

Six months in office, President Barack Obama sought to rally support for sweeping health care legislation Wednesday night as Congress struggled to find agreement on a historic overhaul. He vowed to reject any measure "primarily funded through taxing middle-class families."

At a prime-time news conference, Obama defended his decision to set a midsummer deadline for the House and Senate to act, even if it isn't met. "I'm rushed because I get letters every day from families that are being clobbered by health care costs, and they ask me can you help," he said.

The stakes are huge not just for everyday Americans, but also for Obama, who is putting much of his credibility on the line to gain congressional passage. His stepped-up public role comes as he faces rising criticism from Republicans, sliding public approval ratings and divisions within his party. Obama acknowledged that many people are uneasy about growing federal budget deficits and the fast-rising government debt.

He said that without a deadline for action, a recent proposal to curtail the growth in Medicare costs would not have materialized "until who knows when." He said in the past few days, leaders in both houses had agreed to incorporate it into legislation taking shape.
PJTV is holding an Obamacare forum tonight.

Consider this an Obamacare open thread.

I've heard it both ways- of course, since that Clown Posse in DC doesn't even read the stuff they vote in to law, I guess it doesn't matter much anyway.

SSomeone actually had the guts to ask that simple question of king Obamessiah? I bet he gave a nice wandering NON answer to the question that did not contain a “yes” or “no” answer.

Be warned, though, the question “If it’s so good, why aren’t YOU going to sign on to it?” is NOT the end-all question here, because if we press that, they’ll include legislation that includes Congress and the Pres, then the minute it passes, repeal that section!!!

You are absolutely correct about dem’s attack playbook.

In ths case the dems need the doctors onboard with the plan and this just labels all doctors as money grabbers and not at all thinking what’s best for the patient.

If I was the GOP I would drive that home and chip away AMA support.

You don’t insult people you need on your side and Obama does it all the time.

Haven’t you figured it out yet?

This guy, for all the talk of “how smart he is” is too stupid for specifics, literally.

He’s a lip flapper, who just gives blank checks to others to do whatever they want with some vague direction from him, and he goes and plays golf or whatever. He’s not a leader, has absolutely no inate talent, would have been laughed of the stage when he announced he was running for the white house had his skin been white.

He doesn’t care about specifics, he doesn’t care about work, all he cares about is the perks, I’ll be the face, you guys go worry about the specifics, and call me when you are done.

he’s a joke, an abject joke.

Your analysis is correct, I had figured it out before he even got elected; he is Cadillac Duval Patrick multiplied by a factor of 100,000. He is “king” Obamessiah, he flies him and his family entourage where he wants when he wants on the nations dime, he flies in guys from Chicago just to make him pizza, he flies he and his wife to NYC so he can go out for dinner and his wife walks around on $500 sneakers carrying $6,000 purses, his kids walk around in designer duds and that is just the tip of the iceberg. It is ALL ABOUT HIM AND HOW MUCH HE CAN SCAM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FOR OVER THE NEXT FOUR YEARS.
