Here We Go Again: People Fainting at Alarming Rate at Obama Campaign Events

Posted by on Mar 15, 2012 at 12:22 pm

This tweet a short  time ago from Jamie Dupree had such a familiar ring to it after someone allegedly keeled over at an Obama campaign stop:

They’ll be okay, just make sure to give them space

Gee, it was only eight days ago something remarkably  similar occurred:

“Looks like somebody might’ve fainted up here, have we got . . . Somebody . . . EMS . . . Somebody . .  Don’t worry about it: Folks do this all the time in my meetings,” Obama said. “You always got to eat before you stand for a long time–that’s a little tip. They’ll be OK, just make sure–give them a little room.

Uh, uh, uh…

Gee, these couldn’t be staged by any chance, could they?

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

These coincidences are remarkable:

“That happens sometimes in the crowd, just give him some space. If the medics can make sure to check on them, in the meantime just make sure that they’ve got some air,” the president said.

Heck, they even have this crap on the White House website:

Okay, we’ll be all right.  They probably were just standing too long.  Just give them a little space.  Where’s our EMS folks?  They’ll be okay.  Just give him a little space.  This happens sometimes.  You guys been here a while after the magging?

Is the text plugged into TOTUS already? Warning, Bammy, in case of “fainting” read this line!

Update:  The New York Times has a report from today, but uses it as a reminder that people should eat right something.

    Lack of oxygen to the brain causes both fainting and stupidity — they go hand-in-hand.

    Perhaps they’re worried that if they fail to show the proper level of zealous worship to Our Dear Leader, they might face the same fate as those insincere mourners at Kim Jong Il’s funeral.

    Not to worry, @SOEarpiece is providing Barky with his rhetorical one-liners when these spontaneous spells of the vapors occur among the O’bots in his adoring throngs.

    Do they have anymore people stuffed into doctors coats to tend to them? It would be appropriate to have fake doctors treating fake groupies.

    That’s very cult-like.
    A lot of people fainted at Jim Jones rallys. No, wait…. that wasn’t fainting.

    This is indeed stagecraft and it’s very old.

    Anyway, I love how Obama stammers even when it’s something he has dealt with 400 times.

    Bill Clinton handled the fainting show with panache.

    Obama’s all “uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh”

    If a styrofoam greek column falls on a pack of crazed shills, does it make an ‘I’ shaped dent?

    Can you blame them? They’re drowning their sorrows with the bottle. Takes quite a few pints to have to listen to that chump and not be embarrassed by supporting him.

    @Dustin – funny you should mention Clinton having the same fainting problems as obama.

    My husband attended a Hinchey/Clinton fund raiser/stump thing shortly before the 2010 elections, and when Clinton spoke……a woman fainted! Oddly, the same thing had happened at another Dem fundraiser Clinton had spoken at the day before.

    My question is, when Clinton appears with obama at a funder, and a woman or two faints, who gets the credit?

    BTW, the YouTube of my husband heckling Clinton went viral. He was thrilled.

    Well, there are only 2 reasonable situations going on here, a setup, hence the same “give ’em some room” spiel every time, or he is a blithering idiot, who cares nothing about people. How in the name of God can you watch a person fall on the ground and not immediately ask, “could someone see if that person is alright?”, followed quickly by “if there’s a doctor, nurse or EMT nearby, could you please check on that person?”

    My children are taught to never assume someone who faints or otherwise falls over (without immediately getting up) is OK. You check on them and get help.

    Just the fact he’s OK with looking like an uncaring ass and unworthy of that persons time should be of concern.

    They faint because he stinks!!!

    Remember, mooch had been telling us and world a couple of times in interviews, that Obama stinks!
