Doctored Photo Op?

It seems there's quite a story behind the picture of the 150 doctors in their white coats at the White House Monday in support of President Obama's health care reform.

 

 

 

Perhaps you saw the picture of the 150 doctors in their white coats at the White House Monday in support of President Obama's health care reform.

It turns out those doctors weren't in their white coats by chance. They were instructed to wear them as a show of support from the medical community. Those who didn't wear their white coats were provided them by the White House.

Some are raising concerns that the White House "Photo Op" was nothing more than a fraud. Others don't really see an issue with it.

What do you think? Is what the White House did appropriate, or does it amount to orchestrated manipulation?

    Liberal mentality will be the downfall of the great nation. MOST liberals have Little or NO moral compass that is ultimately creating a "Sewer Society".

    Thing is, they're still doctors. The white coats just identify them as such. Dr. House almost never wears a white coat (despite Cuddy's insistence) and for a fictional character, he's the smartest doctor you've ever seen. Most jobs require you to wear a uniform identifying you as a part of the company if you work with the public. It's not fraud, it's policy. For those who disagree, try wearing your street clothes to work, and try telling your boss that wearing your uniform constitutes fraud. He may just fire you and make it so.

    Very disappointed again with the politicians we elect. We may all want change, but is this really a change from what has happened in our history--constant manipulation of facts for political gain--so much for the transparent government we have been promised.

    No, I don't think it was appropriate. That being said, I agree with the comment from Ted.

    Small potatoes, politicians have always done whatever they could to make themselves look better. I think all the talk over the white coats is distracting from the real issue of just what a disaster Government ran health care will be.
