Echoes of Hillary: VIDEO – Guess Who’s the New Spokespimp for ObamaCare?

By Debbie Schlussel
I don’t know about you, but when I entered the polling booth on Election Day, back in November of last year, Michelle Obama’s name wasn’t anywhere on my ballot. No mention of her or of Michelle LaVaughn Robinson or of Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Hussein Obama Idi Amin Dada.
But, for some reason, this First Lady is now a policymaker and spokeschick for a number of Obama causes. First, she addressed Department of Homeland Security employees and snubbed ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Then, she led cheers for Obama Supreme Court nominee Justice J-Lo a/k/a Sonia From the Block a/k/a So-So a/k/a Sonia Sotmayor.
Now, she’s the new pimp for Obamacare. And it has echoes–very, very scary echoes!–of Hillarycare. It’s like deja vu with a bigger booty. Well, since we’re comparing with Mrs. Clinton, maybe even that’s the same, too.


YIKES!: America’s New National Dietician/Medical Doctor

As the debate over health care reform escalates on Capitol Hill and in the White House, first lady Michelle Obama told “Good Morning America” in an exclusive interview that “no system is going to be perfect” and “it’s not going to be easy.” . . .
Despite the contention over the merits of the plan and as how it would be funded, the first lady told “GMA” she thinks success is possible now because “more and more people are ready for this kind of reform.”
“The country has moved to another point in time,” she said. “It’s not going to be easy, but you have more people who are ready to try to figure it out. And hopefully that will ultimately make the difference this time around. “

Sorry, Mrs. Obama, but where did you get your medical degree? Where did you do your residency and internship? When and where did you open your first medical practice? Last time I checked, women with law degrees ain’t the ideal source for medical advice.
Sadly, this is exactly who will be providing you with medical care and deciding the level of care you get with Obamacare–lawyers and bureaucrats with no medical expertise. And don’t forget, Michelle Obama cut the level of healthcare when she was on the board of a hospital, the University of Chicago Medical Centers. She gave crummy healthcare to poor patients who were processed like mice at a medical mill, cutting them off from proper care. And that’s a preview of what she and her hubby will give you, while they continue to have the nation’s best doctors at their disposal.
Growing a garden only gives you a green thumb, not the combined mind of Van Nostrand and Gray. Her medical advice to eat organic food is hilarious, since organic food is not only not healthier, but it’s often more bug- and germ-ridden.
And any prescription she wants to write for Americans, you know where she and her husband can shove it.

The first lady acknowledged that her involvement in promoting nutrition, wellness and prevention “is to me one of the true keys of changing the health paradigm in this country.”

Barf. The woman grows a garden, and suddenly she’s our national nutritionista and health guru.

“Government can’t do it all,” she said.

Um, we already know. Tell it to your husband.

“My hope is that if I play a role in sort of ringing the bell of prevention and wellness and exercise.”

You can best do that by telling your husband to stuff it . . . his absurd, socialist medical plan.
Whatever happened to the good old days . . . when First Ladies knew their place and stuck to reading books to children and visiting libraries and hospitals?
That was a whole lot preferable to unelected spouses who don hijabs for the Islamic world (Mrs. Bush) and pimp socialized medicine (Mrs. Obama).
Memo to the chicks of the White House: You weren’t on the ballot. Stay out of policy and stick to the garden, china, and draperies.

having a medical degree has nothing to do with running a hospital, a health care program or improving national health care. None of the current medical schools inside or outside the US has ANY classes on healthcare adminitration or management You can however get an MHA degree which some would argue is a healthcare geared MBA.
But even that can’t help straighten things out.
Trying to get a doctor to fix healthcare is like trying to get a dishwasher to manage the accounts at a fast food franchise. About as useful as a turnip in a cookie factory.

Michelle Obama is a perfect spokesperson for all that is wrong with health care. After all she was “gave” a $300,000 a year job at hospital system after her husband became an elected official. This job was obviously important considering the salary amount, although the position will not be filled now that she is first lady. She also worked on a plan that “farmed” out the poorest patients to other medical facilities. Yep, great spokesperson!

Debbie will observe Obamacare is so terrible that congresscritters have thoughtfully exempted themselves from it. If its not good enough for the federal establishment, why the heck is it good enough for America? We do not need a re-run of Hillary Care and Obamacare suffers from all of the same flaws and short-comings that doomed it.

NormanF on June 23, 2009 at 1:07 pm

How about a law requiring the Obama family to be restricted to using only the health care they are going to force on us.

Didnt’ you know tht liberals in general and democrats in particular believe that a ‘liberal arts’ tyep of education makes you an expert in all fields, trumping even those who actually work and contribute to the field. We have a president of the US who has done essentially nothing his whole (choke on the word) “career” except rabbel rouse for scoialism in the streets of Chicago, but now “runs” the banks, finance and even the auto industry of the USA, as well as directs our foreign policy without any experience whatsoever. He knows more than the generals about waging war, even though they’ve spent 30 or more years inthe military whereas “Beloved Leader” didn’t even manage to get his selective service paperwork done correctly.
Then there’s “Al the scientist, I have a nobel prize” Gor. I dont’even want to explore the depths of ignorance, pompous-assity, and blowhard BS from him.
I sincerely hope that the day returns when this country is run by people who actually realize their limitations, parley REAL experience and don’t suffer from mass hysteria induced delusions of omnipotence.

“Whatever happened to the good old days . . . when First Ladies knew their place and stuck to reading books to children and visiting libraries and hospitals?”
LOL! Debbie, U know U wrong for that! But Just when I was about to get on you about always being so hard on Michelle, I was sent this quote that was taken from a recent New Yorker story about Martha’s Vineyard:
Many Blacks from Oak Bluffs are elated that the Commander-in-Chief may be joining them. At the same time, there’s also a bit of wariness among the wealthiest ones, an uncertainty whether Obama will affirm them. “Obama is more a man of the people,” says a female Vineyarder who’s part of Black high society. “He doesn’t seem to identify with affluent Black people. His wife definitely doesn’t; she is basically a ghetto girl. I mean, wasn’t her father was some sort of factory worker? That’s what she says – I’m just being sociological. She grew up in the same place Jennifer Hudson did. She hasn’t reached out to the Black social community of Washington, and people are waiting to see what they’ll do about that.”
Wow. This is coming from Black folks. The claws are already out. Michelle! Welcome to the extremely cliquish and snobbish world of Washington “Black high society”. You’re the FLOTUS, yet they expect you to come to them. Because your husband’s not in the Boule, you’re not a Link or a Girlfriend, and Sahsa and Malia aren’t in Jack and Jill, you’re still viewed with suspicion and disdain by some in this bourgie set. If you think Debbie and her conservative crew are hard on you, you ain’t seen nothing yet!!
Lawd have mercy. Black folks…we are our own worst enemy!!

Obama is going to severely damage nearly all our major institutions. Health Care, Financing, Manufacturing Industry, Education, et cetera. He has his hand in all of them.

#1. She is a disbarred lawyer. How credible
#2.She was paid 300,000 in a hospital with no experience other than being black. It isn’t racist. That was all she offered.
#3. she had an agenda to chase poor patients AWAY from her hospital. she wanted them to go away. No welfare.
#4 No where in the law or the constitution does it explicitely tell you that YOU have a right to healthcare paid by me. You all have right to healthcare and a right to pay for it.
#5. I hope china won’t loan us money by the trillions to pay for insurance now for future claims of only 1/3 of the uninsured.

Debbie,I got it!YOU are the next Spokespimp(ess)is!
There is an old saying that goes, “It is better to keep your mouth shut and thought to be a fool, then to open it and remove all doubt.” You, Debbie, and most of the persons who have written their opinions on Michelle O, fall into the category of “Haters”. She has more intelligence in her little finger then you have in your whole body. If you had done to the Bushes,who didn’t and never did care what happened to you and what you thought,what you have done to the Obama’s the United States would not be in the financial state it is in now. It is disheartening to know that there are people who would rather the U.S. would fall apart and disintegrate then to accept the fact that there are capable, intelligent Black Men and other minorities who have been suppressed for centuries by people using the very same tactics you are using, rather then to have them succeed as President. What you are doing to this President and Administration is sad, sickening and sinful. And unfortunately, all of us are going to have to pay for it.

Wanda Simpson on June 23, 2009 at 6:43 pm

Wanda Simpson: I just have to respond to your rant. How can you say Michelle has intelligence in her little finger? I have seen no evidence of intelligence in Michelle. She is affirmative action through and through. She couldn’t even major in a legitimate major at Princeton–she majored in Black Studies or some such pseudodiscipline.
Let’s have a throwdown–put Michelle’s SATs and LSATs up against Debbie’s and we’ll see who has the intelligence.
Wake up–Barry H Obama is an incapable Bi-Racial Man who is not even a citizen of the US!
Ask yourself, would an intelligent woman go around looking like a tranny? The false eyelashes can’t hide the fact that Michelle is fugly.
Intelligence, my foot. You don’t even know what intelligence is.
Show us the SATs and LSATs. Prove me wrong.

she is also in charge of barry’s slave volunteer sign up. Her medical experience is keeping the poor and minorities out of her fancy hospital. How is that going to help America?

from JJ- “You’re the FLOTUS,”
Is that sort of like FLATUS, only louder?

Mistress_Dee on June 24, 2009 at 3:54 am

The flotus has a case of butt bloat in my opinion.

Chuck W on June 24, 2009 at 5:34 am

You Americans are afraid of a national health care plan. Debbie — even Israel has it but I don’t see you kvetching over that. The bottom line is that most whites don’t want to feel that they are paying for blacks who are the main ones uninsured. This is stupid — you are your brothers keeper — whether you like it or not. I live in Canada and just had surgery recently. Guess what? No HMO, no fees an outpatient proceedure and most of all — it was free — which by the way is paid for through my tax dollars and my neighbours tax dollars. I waited three weeks but it wasn’t urgent and we do handle urgent cases first. It’s not perfect and it can be perfected but at least we have it. I don’t mind paying for the well being of others, no matter who they are – all people have a right to live. SO — SMARTEN UP — people.
