Legions of Lawyers

Maybe President Obama is focused on jobs after all. Maggie’s Farm says ObamaCare will lead to more work for lawyers because it expands the types of claimants who can bring Qui Tam actions.

If that doesn’t work, Obama can always promote more jobs for actors portraying him:

“Open TV and Film, the London-based production company, is developing a TV mini-series based on Barack Obama’s days on the campaign trail. ITV Studios USA is co-developing the project. Simon Shaps, chairman of Open, has optioned Newsweek journalist Richard Woolfe’s book Renegade: The Making of a President. The author was granted unique access to Obama during the campaign. Shaps – who used to be ITV’s director of television — told me: “It is early days, but we are sure there will no shortage of ideas for who plays the President.”

Plus, with so many reporters working on books about Obama, think of all the jobs he will create in book publishing.

  6. The question is: Who’s going to buy all those books? Most Obama voters don’t read or can’t read English. Will there be translations into, say, a Kenyan dialect?

  7. Given the quotes from the White House correspondents in the last couple weeks, it seems that the needed access for such hagiographies is being exchanged for favorable coverage.
