Lawyers Hail Obama's Disparagement of Most Other Professions

The Trial Lawyers Association hailed President Obama's disparagement of most other professions today, saying "We applaud the President's casting suspicions on the motives of doctors, police, and firefighters, as we do every day in court."

At a July news conference, Obama said police acted "stupidly" regarding a recent incident just moments after he admitted "I don't know all the facts." He also claimed doctors make medical decisions based not on their best medical judgment, but on how much they'll be reimbursed for a given procedure. These remarks followed Obama's nomination of a Justice to the Supreme Court who denied promotions to firefighters who scored highest on an advancement test on the grounds no black firefighters scored high enough for promotion.

A trial lawyer spokesperson added, "We're looking forward to working with the administration on crafting its next harangue against nurses."
