Obama's Health Care Summit - Did anyone else notice...

Did you watch President Obama's Health Care Summit today?

Did anyone else notice that ...

...President Obama seem distracted when the Republicans were talking - he was busy writing, or someone was whispering in his ear, or he was sitting there with his nose up in the air trying to think about what he was going to say as soon as the person who was talking finished  speaking?

...Democrats get a lot of letters and like to tell sob stories about them?

...President Obama is full of himself and likes to pull rank...because "he's the President"?

...President Obama enjoyed reminding John McCain that "the campaign is over".

...Nancy Pelosi swings her arms around so much that the guy next to her has to duck to get out of the way before she hits him upside the head?

...Harry Reid is a jerk?

...President Obama likes to hear himself talk?

...the GOP made their case for starting over?

...President Obama had his mind made up before he walked into the room and couldn't care less about the Republican ideas or what the American people want?

...the Republicans knew that President Obama had his mind made up from the get go?

...the Republicans know more about the Democrat health care bill than President Obama?

...the Democrats are going down the path of reconciliation - whether it is feasible or not?

...the summit gave the GOP a chance to show America their health care ideas and that was the only good thing that came out of the summit? was President Obama's show and he only wanted to use this as a photo op trying to prove his "desire" for "bi-partisanship"?

...Mitch McConnell looks like he's ready to hurl in the photo above?

Did you notice anything I didn't?

  1. I noticed pretty much all that you mentioned. If I was there like McConnell, I would have felt like spewing also. This was definitely kabuki theater. Obama showed just how arrogant and testy he was today. Obama's shine is dimming.

  2. Hi Teresa:
    Obama did seem a little "out of sorts" today, especially when some of the Republicans refuted some of his lies. The whole thing was a show and I think the best part of it was that the GOP finally got to be heard on TV. I bet Obama is sorry he agreed to televise it.

  3. the little i watched/listened to, those tings stuck out, especially the, 'i talk longer cause i'm president, and don't you forget it' part. thanks for stopping by and signing up.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
    The Prez knows who's boss and doesn't let anyone forget it.

  5. I only saw clips, because thankfully my job hasn't been "Obama-sized" yet.

    I think I just made up a new phrase...

    Anyway... I was listening to Rush do a "play-by-play" during the first hour, and it was hilarious to listen to him describe Obama scowling, cutting everyone off just as they were getting to their point, and ho it seemed there was always a powwow going on as he had his advisers try to find answers for him.

    Rush also mentioned that of course, what he described was nothing like what the MSM would offer... sure enough, Chris Matthews was drooling tonight, and Reuters had a headline "Obama dominates the room at healthcare summit."

  6. Sol:
    As far as I'm concerned, Obama should be sorry he televised the summit because the only people who came off good were the Republicans. He was arrogant and testy (as Teresa said in her comment), reminding everyone that HE is president and being totally condescending (e.g., to McCain). As for the Dems, the best they could do was to tell sob stories about people who had problems with their health care.
    Obama's summit was nothing more than a photo op. The Dems will continue on their road to ramming ObamaCare down our throats any way they can.

  7. The whole summit was a crock! Great site! I will link to it on my blog at!

  8. John:
    A big show for Obama.
    Thanks for stopping by and for the link. I'll drop by your site to check it out.

  9. It's food for the left wing, pure and simple.

    Now Madcow and Maher and the hate blogs can harp on about how Obama IS bipartisan, and it's the dirty, racist Republicans that want people to die.

    Whoever first said that all Democrats needed to fail was the chance to be in power was brilliant and ahead of their time.

    Obama = FAIL

    And, not to be overly hard on the guy, I really think he might be an effective president if he wasn't surrounded by other social progressive schmucks padding his ego and adding to the groupthink mentality.

    He's still a great communicator (when on prompter) and a likeable guy who can certainly win America some points. But the negatives--ego, warped ideology, lack of common ground with the American people, etc--are always on display.

  10. Hi Josh:
    Just heard Obama will add 4 GOP ideas to the "new" health care reform bill. I just hope the Republicans don't fall for this. Collins & Snowe always give me cause for worry.
