    Really? How does "This is a cause for concern, not for alarm" a scare tactic from the WH? It's a way of covering their asses later in case it does turn bad, but in now way is the WH saying "everyone is going to die, go get plastic wrap and duct tape and lock yourself in your house. The germs can't get you that way"

    No, the VP is just telling people to avoid all public transportation now.

    I think that they use these almost daily panic inducements, to distract us from whats really going on, like pork barrel spending, lineing the pockets of the wealthy but inept, Affirmative action, globalism, police state governance, wars for oil, junk science, etc, and other TRUELY scarry dung (the least of which they are concerned about...it doen`t pay as well...no pork).

    At which point the administration went into damage control. I won't defend Biden. I wouldn't recognize him if he didn't have his foot in his mouth.

    Eh, fear is on a personal level. I haven't been frightened since he was in office. The things he is trying to accomplish that scare you are things I want to see done. That is NOT to say he hasn't made mistakes, he has, and will make many more, but I am overall pretty satisfied.

    Also, for what it's worth, I also wasn't "scared" for most of Bush's reign. I disagreed strongly with a lot more of his policy based on my political stance, but was rarely frightened by scare tactics.

    Is this a twofer crisis designed to push UHC and immigration reform through by panicing the people? That would certainly be consistent with the preferred methods of Prez Doofus and the Soros Administration.

    You're right, this current administration pioneered the art of the diversion. Never in American history have these tactics been used before this. Whatever will we do?

    Glad to see you agree.

    Although most former administrations have utilized the Govern by Panic method, Prez Doofus and the Soros Admin have perfected it. They are the never let a good crisis go to waste folks after all.

    Partisan hackery. When in his 8 year term did Bush not do this? The difference between you and I is that I can acknowledge the flaws in my own party, not just blindly point the finger at the opposition. As I have said many times, I don't have a problem with you having opposing views, I have problems with your logical fallacies, your "appeal to ridicule" here in particular.

    Good God...I had no idea sucking Obama's balls also killed the ability to take a ****ing joke.
