Somebody Fainted At Obama’s Speech

From The Hill:

Audience member faints at Obama rally

By Eric Zimmermann – 03/15/10

An audience member seems to have fainted during President Obama’s speech in Ohio just now.

Obama briefly stopped his speech and asked for a medic to make his way to the individual.

"Just give him some space," Obama said, before resuming his speech.

Man, they really are pulling out all the stops.

Or maybe the gentleman in question was just overcome with the same reverence for our President that the New York Times was expressing with the image they posted of him yesterday (above).

Or perhaps the poor fellow was just finally ‘worn down.’

For as Mr. Obama remarked in St. Louis last week, “People are telling me ‘don’t get worn down.” I tell them I don’t get worn down; I wear them down.”

And that he does.

    Maybe his teleprompter broke down and he actually told the truth. I could see that causing someone to faint because its never happened before, least not that we know of.

      …..”Obama briefly stopped his speech and asked for a medic to make his way to the individual……”

      It’s at times like these when the distinction between a “medic” and a “corpseman” is absolutely paramount!

      Wow, ol’ barry really “leaped into action” there. Such selflessness, such compassion, such….such….why, he’s simply amaaaazing. To actually STOP what he’s doing to get the poor man some assistance. My god, who else in the world today has the COURAGE to fend off critics to do such a thing? This guy is tough as brillo, I tells ya. Ignoring all potential for further drops in poll numbers to TELL SOMEONE to help this guy. Why, I’m in utter awe.

      His actions rank right up there with…with….gee Captain Sullinberger comes to mind. I mean, all he and Jeff Skiles did was land a plane, but barry……I mean woah, look out. He stopped…….talking…..for many seconds. This will surely go down in history as one of the greatest acts any president has ever done. Why, he might’ve lost the support of a loony lefty by not talking so long. Such mind-numbing peril!

      There must now be a midget in the podium feeding dynamic changes into the teleprompter.

      Otherwise, how could he have known to stop what he was saying?

    • Mithrandir

      You can just hear his voice now can’t you?

      “Make no mistake….”
      “Let me be clear….”
      “At the end of the day…..”
      “From the economy we inherited…..”

      Soon, you will see video of the teleprompter jumping to freedom from a 10th floor window. (lol)

    He probably figured it’s safer to have his heart attack now.

    • JohnMG

      More’n likely just a bad case of heartburn.

    • Mithrandir

      …..this just in, CNN reports that if the fainter had proper Obamacare, it would have never happened. Apparently, in insurance companies wouldn’t cover pre-existing fainting spells…..

    I wonder what they pay these slugs for their fainting jags???

    SEIU sycophants???

    Maybe o-blah-blah, “the won”, should just step down into the masses and heal with his hands???

    Now .. if these folks were barfing (projectile vomitus) I could understand it.

  4. Liberals Demise

    When a ACORN falls and ‘BOINKS’ its’ wittle head the MSM is alllllll over it but when the halfrican destroys the American economy………….nada!

    “Three jeers for the Fourth Estate.”

  5. canary

    He was probably a prop, fear tactic. New York Times photo is sacrilegious to have Obamanation in it.

  6. Mithrandir

    Not to be outdone, Hillary Clinton will most likely get someone to faint at one of her speeches, just like during the Democratic primaries. Remember when both candidates stopped what they were doing to give advice, render aid, and ask, “Is there a medic or doctor in the arena?” –Uh, yeah, there is about 100 of them on staff at each of these events to ensure the absolute health and safety of our dear politicians—fakers!

    Did they figure out what line the person choked on? Teleprompter seances have been known to induce dizziness, following all the lies can get tough.

  8. GetBackJack

    Hell, I’ve had fainting spells regarding Obama.

    And high blood pressure and rages and blood in my face and ….

  9. I see Obama is in full campaign mode again, where he is at his absolute best!
    This campaigner in Chief is such a leader, too bad its right into the ditch.
    Does he see the debt mountain our posterity is going to have to climb? Does he care?
    I know his kids will have to live in this mess too. I guess they will end up in some Govt. job and get the good health care.

  10. Reality Bytes

    Dems who compare Obama to Christ are gonna get their wish in November but this time their Messiah is gonna take them all with him.

  11. jobeth

    Just another indication that O’Balmy is still in campaign mode.

    Remember all the people who “fainted” during the campaign? It gives him a chance to appear so “strong” so “in control” …so full of bull.

    Same ol’, same ol’…Is there even one original bone in his body?

    Does he really think someone dropping out (for a buck) would impress us?
    Does he really think we are impressed with his command of the situation…I mean “Just give him some space,” ? Thank Goodness he was there. Why everyone would have squeezed in if he hadn’t told them to back up.

    What a prez…spit, spit.
