imageWhen he speaks from his ever-present TelePrompter or appears on the stage of a town hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, a grinning President Barack Obama dismisses health care protesters as cranks.

Hearing a question from a worried woman called Mary at an AARP-sponsored health care “tele-town hall: “I have been told that under a new health care plan, Medicare recipients would be visited and told to decide how they wish to die,” Obama piled on reassurance with slick and charm.

With a grin, Obama’s response to `Mary’ was: “I guarantee you, first of all we just don’t have enough government workers to talk to everybody to find out how they want to die.”

That’s the Obamacare Obama on stage as presented by a fawning mainstream media.

Behind the public stage is the staging of Obamacare that really matters.  It’s called Organizing for America (OFA), and its main hallmark is deceit.

In their own words, this is how OFA is fighting “insurance companies” and “partisan attack groups” they accuse of “stirring up fear with false rumors about the President’s plan”.

“So we’ve cooked up an easy, powerful way for you to make a big impression: Office Visits for Health Reform.

That’s right.  The OFA comes right out an admits to their activists that their Office Visits for Health Reform are “cooked up”.

“All this week, OFA members like you will be stopping by local congressional offices to show our support for insurance reform.  You can have a quick conversation with the local staff, tell your personal story, or even just drop off a customized flyer and say that reform matters to you.”

And check out this line about how to fool the masses which appears under the official Obama logo: “As you’ve probably seen in the news, special interest attack groups are stirring up partisan mobs with lies about health reform, and it’s getting ugly.  Across the country, members of Congress who support reform are being shouted down, physically assaulted, hung in effigy, and receiving death threats.  We can’t let extremists hijack this debate, or confuse Congress about where the people stand.” (Emphasis CFP’s).

This is how Obama and the Obamabots play doctor with the lives of Americans.  You can read it below,  word for word, minus the TelePrompter and the on-stage grin.
