    Biden: Stay Off Subways During Swine Flu Panic

    Biden: Stay Off Subways During Swine Flu Panic

    Biden: Stay Off Subways During Swine Flu Panic | NBC New York

    "I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now," Biden said when asked whether he would advise family members to use public transportation.

    Biden made his comments during a brief interview on NBC's "Today" show during an interview with Matt Lauer.

    "I would tell members of my family, and I have, I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now. It's not that it's going to Mexico, it's you're in a confined aircraft when one person sneezes it goes all the way through the aircraft. That's me. I would not be, at this point, if they had another way of transportation suggesting they ride the subway. "

    The vice president also implied that schools should be closed as the threat of swine flu increases.

    "If you're out in the middle of a field and someone sneezes that's one thing. If you're in a closed aircraft or a closed container or closed car or closed classroom it's a different thing."


    So they let Biden out of the box and immedietly puts his foot in his mouth. So tell me, do you think it's wise for the VP to make these comments and further fuel this overblown panic?

    It's Biden, what do you expect?

    No, its actually good he says this.

    I turns the perception of public transportation from the savior of all mankind, into a death trap of disease.

    Besides, nobody listens to the VP anyway.

    Impeach him for being a dumbass. Closed containers are great!!!
    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.

    I think the comments were somewhat reckless and stupid. It's hard to know what the hell to think when the WHO is raising alert levels, the VP is basically telling you only a goddamn fool would get on the bus, and then others are saying this flu is likely more benign than the typical seasonal flu.

    I agree, Joe. I'm much safer in my Hummer.

    If people are sick or the flu is going around you would avoid cramped public places. How is that putting his foot in his mouth?

    I think the goal now is to cease creating panic. Being a straight shooter Biden has no idea how to do that.
