    Obama vows great 'vigilance' as swine flu spreads

    Obama vows great 'vigilance' as swine flu spreads :: WRAL.com
    WASHINGTON President Barack Obama pledged "great vigilance" in confronting the swine flu outbreak Wednesday night as it began hitting home across the U.S. The outbreak spread to 11 states and closed schools amid confirmation of the first U.S. death - a Mexican toddler who visited Texas with his family - and the confinement of dozens of Marines after one came down with the disease in California.
    I found this pleasing:

    He praised the Bush administration for making preparations for such a crisis, including stockpiling 50 million doses of antiviral medications.

    for our boys in Red.

    "Great vigilance," huh?

    I feel better knowing someone is watching. We'll know in a few days if all the watching BO will be doing helped or not.

    Seriously? How is this a partisan issue. Any party would likely handle this situation in a similar way.

    By doing nothing? I don't think so.

    Hey since we blamed a hurricane on Bush, do we get to blame the flu on Obama?

    The fallacy of your argument, as usual, is that no one blamed Bush for Hurricane Katrina, they blamed him for the pathetic lack of response to the catastrophe.

    If the flu turns into a catastrophe and Obama responds in a likewise pathetic fashion, then absolutely he should get the blame for the pathetic response.

    Oh come on now, Rev, we all know the handling of Katarina was top-notch all the way. If fact, they all did a heck of a job!
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Bush was not blamed FOR the hurricane, he was blamed for his response.

    Although some right wing nutjobs did try to blame the morality of the people for the hurricane.

    Yet, make NO mistake that the partisan hacks will play the pandemic to the hilt.

    The logical person knows that Obama is no more responsible for a pandemic hitting the US than President Bush was for a hurricane laying waste to the Gulf Coast.

    Yet, the partisans zealots will make every attempt to spin, manipulate, and maliciously try to lay the blame on their counter-egos, as their counter-egos defend and justify.

    Myself, I just see these zealots as two-sides of the same bad-penny.

    I'm gonna grab some popcorn and watch the party absurdities begin.

    Are you doing your don quixote impression today?



    I think Obama's response thus far to a mild flu, is more than "responsive" and "Adequete" but seems to be a bit overboard. But hey. don't let me stop you attacking dem windmills.
