Bill Clinton and Joe Biden Come to Irvine

BillClinton-6-24-2007 031

Hat tip to OC Weekly (see Gustavo, that’s how it’s done) for the news that former President Bill Clinton arrives in Irvine today and Vice President Joe Biden will come to Irvine tomorrow as part of two day Patient Safety & Technology Summit at the Hotel Irvine (the former Hyatt) off of Main Street and Jamboree.  Clinton kicks off the event with a keynote today and Biden speakers tomorrow before visiting West Los Angeles College as part of the post-SOTU campaign to push for free community college for all Americans.

The summit is all about preventing unnecessary patient deaths and benefits clinicians, hospital administrators, patients, insurance providers and government agencies to communicate better and find more effective solutions.  The event is sponsored by the Patient Safety Movement Foundation.

We wonder if Mayor Steven Choi will attend with a Photoshopped image of Hillary on his back.

    Only Dan can turn a story that has nothing to do with me…into a swipe at me. You’re OC’s new Frank Mickadeit—congrats!

    “Bill Clinton and Joe Biden Come to Irvine …”

    What’s the punch line?

      The punch line on this one is in the pocket book. With a large contingent of Irvine Officers assigned to back up and support the Secret Service over two days, how much overtime will the Irvine taxpayers fork out so “Slick Willy” and “foot in his mouth Biden” can slink into town and collect their outrageous speech fees? Your tax dollars at work folks. Big government is not our friend. Yea, Dan I know the Republicans do it too, but that still doesn’t make it right. Oh, by the way Dan, if Steven Choi were to show up on Friday, it would be more appropriate for him to weat a T-Shirt with a photo of Monica “Deep Throat” Lewinsky on it.

        Does this mean you object to Secret Service and police protection for George W. Bush and Dick Cheney?

          Assuming you can read English, I addressed your question in my comments. Perhaps you need a picture to understand it. As to the City Council, they are 100% better than under the Agranistas.

      I won’t go there, as I’d prefer to stay polite.

      Needless to say, it’s a good thing for Irvine that such dignitaries are not being scared away by the bat—t crazy City Council.

    Pat, if the mayor showed up wearing said t-shirt, it’s again proof he has no class

      Saw a photo of Steven with Joe Biden and he was decked out in his suit and tie. Appropriate attire when greeting the Vice-President and welcoming him to Irvine, even though the message is a crock of crap.

        I saw it too; let me know when he decides to publicly apologize for the Pelosi-is-Stalin/Pelosi-is-a-Nazi prank. It was nice to tell him to his face that he had no class for doing that and failing to apologize for it at a council meeting last fall.

    Biden and Obama are to some degree responsible for some of the nearly 400,000 yearly deaths caused by preventable medical errors.
    “Deaths by medical mistakes hit records”
    The July 18, 2014 above article:
    “One of the more significant issues relating to ambulatory medical errors involves missed and delayed diagnoses, she pointed out, for instance failing to order appropriate tests or initiate follow up.”
    The attending MD’s ‘appropriate test’ can be overridden by computer algorithms. The results are often missed or delayed diagnoses. It’s health care rationing via computer algorithms. Biden calls it quality care (and cost savings I guess).
    From 1/25/2015 OC Register,
    “The act (Obamacare), he said, incentivized quality care by ending things like automatic Medicare/Medicaid payments.”
    Biden is a genius.
    “There’s no reason we can’t get to zero preventable deaths by 2020,” Biden said. “This is within our grasp.”

    Liberalism is a mental illness. Evidence Clinton’s serial sexual assaults, rape, and pathological lying, not to mention his narcissism which is massively exceeded by Obama’s.

    Evidence Biden’s playful ignorance to the extent that his nickname is “Slow Joe.”

    Evidence Obama’s destructive socialism, predatory spending, serial lying, and obeisance to his Islamic terrorist friends.

      Alan, Liberalism is a mental illness……really. Stock up on tin foil
