A woman who witnesses said appeared to be in labor was prevented from crossing an LA street Wednesday afternoon because the road was closed for President Barack Obama’s motorcade.


The never ending campaigner in chief

Does the thought ever occur to the emperor in chief just how disruptive his 'visits' are to local areas ?

Doesn't sound like it.

Money is more important than doing his job.

A pregnant lady!

I wonder how many times this has happened.

President Obama has held 393 fundraisers in his six years in office



In his first term, Obama attended more fundraising events than any other president in recent history



In his two presidential terms combined, Bush hosted 318 fundraisers. Obama has already smashed that number with 393 events to date.


And we still have two years to go !

393 fundraisers !

141 days of vacations !



By the time President Obama wraps up his 16-day summer vacation next month in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, he will have spent 141 days on vacation. The president has been consistently criticized for taking copious breaks and time away from the Oval Office, something that hasn’t seemed to faze him one iota. Read more at usfinancepost.com...


The border 'crisis'.

The middle east burning.

Russia is just 'misunderstood'.

Over 100 million Americans out of work.

Getting to the bottom of Benghazi doesn't seem to interest the empty chair in chief.

Getting to the bottom of the IRS targeting Americans for their political beliefs doesn't seem interest the empty chair in chief.

I honestly don't think Obama gives on snip about anyone but himself.

All he has to do is coast to the end of his term.

The world matters for naught.

The little people in this country like that pregnant lady matters for naught.

I think Obama has done ENOUGH fundraising.

I don't care what excuse the Administration comes up with.....

this demonstrates the character of the current administration...

the administration gives orders to the Secret Service and the police...

not the other way around as I guess they will claim.

They can't claim "they didn't know", because the guy who made the video told them about it.

Can't wait to hear the old refrain: some one should make it into a parody song
"It's not my fault"

The witnesses said she LOOKED like she was in labor. No indication she actually was.

Secondly, a comment from Twitter:


I know exactly where that is. If woman was trying to get to Cedars, she wouldn't be sitting there! #totalBS


Twitter

I call BS as well...

The road closures were announced.

You're looking to blame everything on Obama! LOL

Then why was an ambulance going to be called for her ?




Kovacik also talked to an LAPD officer at the scene and asked him what was "going to happen with the pregnant lady across the street."



"We’ll be able to open it up for traffic and first we’ll thing we’ll try to get to will be an ambulance, but I can’t guarantee it will be…" the officer said before the 15-second video was cut short.

I thought the same thing myself when I read the article. This thread just looks like a sad attempt to blame Obama for something, which frankly was out of his control. His motorcade wasn't even there yet. It was his security detail, who probably didn't appraise him of the one woman sitting on a bench who may or may not be in labor, that stuck to protocol and not let anyone across until the motorcade passed.

The better question is why did no one across the street come and assist this woman while she waited to cross the street if she was supposedly in labor? This woman sits there for about 30 minutes before she can cross the street and not a SINGLE person came up and asked if she was alright or needed assistance? Heck instead of whipping out his cell phone to record this "travesty" why didn't the reporter actually you know FACT CHECK and yell across the street if she needed help? Nah he needs to document this for later so he can blame Obama for something he has no control over. The reporter certainly had time to do this as the motorcade didn't pass for 30 more minutes. He could have verified her needs and coordinated with people across the street to make her more comfortable or provide some water or something.

This is a rather poor attempt to paint Obama in a poor light, and I certainly don't like him as a president. This is just grasping at straws...

Has any president ever stopped their motorcade for anyone? I believe I already know the answer.

What should he have done that no other president has ever done? Is this just a troll thread for stars and flags?

Honest questions.

I guess pay no attention WHAT SO EVER to 393 fundraisers.

That does it all by itself.

That cop wasn't anywhere in the vicinity of the woman! He didn't know if she was in labor or not. I'm not going to argue this silly crap with you. Sorry.

Hey thanks for IGNORING this again:



"We’ll be able to open it up for traffic and first we’ll thing we’ll try to get to will be an ambulance, but I can’t guarantee it will be…" the officer said before the 15-second video was cut short.


If she wasn't why CALL FOR AN AMBULANCE ?

Our ruling

Sharpton said that Obama "has taken 92 days of vacation since he was sworn in," compared to 367 for President George W. Bush at the same point in his presidency. While this discrepancy is explained by the fact that Bush often worked from a family home in Texas whereas Obama has no equivalent family retreat, Sharpton has correctly cited data from the leading authority, CBS News’ Mark Knoller. The statement is accurate but needs clarification or additional information, so we rate the statement Mostly True.


Politifact
Just another day of right wing propaganda. The article is from last year, looks like Obama will not come close to how many vacation days bush took. Guess it doesn't matter if bush was on vacation since cheney was in charge?

Then why didn't you make a thread explicitly about that? Instead you make a thread about this non-issue and tie the number of fund raisers Obama has attended to the end of the thread as an afterthought like it somehow legitimizes the non-issue that the story in the OP is.

Doubt it happened....but

If she was in THAT much labor, then she should have left to the hospital sooner. If she was just starting labor, then she had plenty of time to wait.

She could have even called 911 and had an ambulance meet her the next street over. She could have given birth in the back of the ambulance if necessary.

This is such a non-story.

Fox reports that staff from Ceders came to her aid... If they could get to her, why couldn't she get to them???



Cedars-Sinai medical staff reportedly came to help the woman while she sat on a bus bench waiting to get to the hospital, witnesses told the Times.
