Gateway Pundit reports that Barack Obama’s own physician is against Obamacare.
So the doctor that Barack Obama visited for over 20 year said the President’s plan is “bound for failure.”
Dr. David Scheiner, a 70-year Chicago-based physician who treated Obama for more than 20 years, said he was disheartened by the health care legislation his former patient is championing, calling it piecemeal and ineffectual.
“I look at his program and I can’t see how it’s going to work,” Scheiner told the Huffington Post. “He has no cost control. There would be no effective cost control in his program. The [Congressional Budget Office] said it’s going be incredibly expensive … and the thing that I really am worried about is, if it is the failure that I think it would be, then health reform will be set back a long, long time.”
So I got out my Obama Emergency Response Kit and started flipping through the pages. (There aren’t that many)
So here’s what Obama will do next, according to the Obama playbook:
First Obama will hold a prime time press conference to say he could no sooner renounce his physician than he would his old business partner Tony Rezko…er…or his preacher Jeremiah Wright…uhm…another bad example…or his own white grandmother whom he denounced by calling her a racist. Well never mind all those people. He’ll just say he couldn’t renounce someone he’s been so close to all these years. And leave it at that.
And then when the doctor goes on Fox News to talk about the shortcomings of Obama’s plan, Obama will pull aside a few friendly reporters to tell them, “Well he didn’t really visit his doctor all that much and when he did he didn’t really pay that close attention.” He’ll say he didn’t need a doctor because he’s in such great shape and then he’ll take off his shirt. Chuck Todd and Keith Olbermann will then be carried out after fainting.
Then after the doctor’s quotes start making the rounds and gaining traction in the press, Obama will then hold another prime time press conference to say that he’s shocked….shocked that someone he was so close to could say and do such a thing. He’ll say, “This is not the physician I once knew and it’s sad to see him change in such a way. And these remarks by a doctor so clearly dominated by greed highlight the terrible need for health care reform which the Republicans are blocking because they hate children.”
And then when polls come out saying Obama treated his physician unfairly he’ll invite the doctor over for a beer to the White House. Photos will be taken but no questions will be allowed.
And then he’ll hold a prime time press conference talking about why this was a “teachable moment for America.” And also that George W. Bush was very bad.
