Obama's Labcoat Photo Op

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.

President Obama must think we are ignorant. Why does he seem to think that it is a communication problem, and not a substance problem. Why does he think that by parading around doctors in lab coats, somehow Americans will now agree with his healthcare reform. Why not address the concerns regarding the substance of the reform? But no, instead President Obama seeks to dupe the American people and pull the wool over their eyes. He chooses not to discuss specifics because if he does, the American people will realize exactly what he is trying to do...more government interference and control of our lives.
