Obama Fails To Show After Being Introduced at ObamaCare Event
Today at 10:30 AM ET, President Obama was scheduled to speak at the White House's "Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network Kickoff Meeting." His introducer, seemingly sensing the president was tardy, gamely tried stretching out his remarks. Then, at around 10:35, apparently receiving word the president was ready to go, the audience
was encouraged to applaud for the next speaker, "the president of the United States!"
Then an awkward silence fell over the crowd as the president failed to show. Spectators could be seen putting down their cameras, losing hope.
Finally, nine minutes later, the president arrived. No explanation or apology was offered.
