The Doctor Will See You Now
It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor. - Neil Gaiman
In an article by Jarrett Stepman, written on 5/11/2012, Obama's former physician, Dr. David Scheiner, M.D. offers his insight into the man many deluded Americans voted for in the last presidential election. The entire article can be found at: http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=51433
I have shared some of the same observations about Barrack Hussein Obama since his appearance on the political radar screen. Mine, however, were based on years of experience dealing with people who lied to further their own best interest at the expense of everyone else in the known universe. This man knew Barrack intimately. The quotes by Dr. Scheiner are found in a new book entitled, "The Amateur" by author Edward Klein.
"The doctor fears that if the health care plan is “the failure” he believes it will be, because of runaway costs and other problems, then any health reform will be set back for years to come."
In the chapter titled, “Hollow at the Core,” Obama’s former physician, who is a liberal, blasts the president for being uncaring, and perhaps worse, incompetent.
“He has no cost control. There would be no effective cost control,” said Scheiner. “The [Congressional Budget Office] said it’s going to be incredibly expensive… and the thing that I’m incredibly worried about is, if it is a failure that I think it will be, then health reform will be set back a long, long time.”
Scheiner said that the Obama administration neglected the advice of real physicians and instead decided to let political operatives craft Obama’s signature health care law. People like Obama’s former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel’s brother, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, were the kinds of medical people that the White House consulted.
“Ezekiel is a medical oncologist, not a general physician,” said Scheiner.
The point that Scheiner was trying to make is that President Obama lacks the ability to understand the critical role of the doctor to patient interaction just as he fails to connect to people personally.
“My main objection to Barack Obama is that he is a great speaker and a lousy communicator. He isn’t getting his message across to people. He isn’t showing that he really cares. To this day he hasn’t communicated with members of Congress.”
