Barack Obama attempted to quiet the swell of criticism about his open borders policy by diminishing the worldwide concern about a new strain of swine flu coming out of Mexico. Obama states the swine flu hysteria that’s sweeping the nation is “not a cause for alarm.” What is wrong with him?

Although swine flu has been around for decades, this is a deadly new strain of the virus that this country has not seen before. What part of ‘deadly’ is he not understanding?

This virus has been known to kill healthy people within 24 hours. The new strain has already caused over 1,600 infections and 68 deaths in Mexico. New cases are sprouting up in the United States and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has matched the strain to the one in Mexico.

If that’s not a cause for alarm then I don’t know what is. Why doesn’t Obama just step down now since he is clearly in over his head?

From AJC.com:

    President Barack Obama said Monday that the threat of spreading swine flu infections is a cause for concern but “not a cause for alarm” as the United States undertook close border monitoring to contain it.

    “The Department of Health and Human Services has declared a Public Health Emergency as a precautionary tool to ensure that we have the resources we need at our disposal to respond quickly and effectively,” Obama told a gathering of scientists, amid increasing worries worldwide about a possible pandemic.

    The quickening pace of developments in the United States in response to some 1,600 swine flu infections in neighboring Mexico was accompanied by a host of varying responses around the world. The European Union advised against nonessential travel to the United States and Mexico, China, Taiwan and Russia considered quarantines and several Asian countries scrutinized visitors arriving at their airports.

    “President Barack Obama attempted to quiet the swell of criticism about his open borders policy”…. hmmm says the woman from Englad…. but how soon we forget, if we closed our borders, people from other countries, would not have been able to come to America, and enjoy the American dream.

    Wasn’t obama the one who brought it back to the states!?!? While in Mexico, obama shook hands and conversed with an anthropologist who died two days later from swine flu.

    Sandra, you know good and well Obama doesn’t give a crap about us Americans.

    This should not surprise you how he is downplaying this epidemic so he won’t insult the over 13 Million illegals and they’re kin they are helping sneak into this country.

    I didn’t sneak into this country by illegally crossing borders. I was admitted with the proper paperwork. Obama wants to eliminate the paperwork and let illegals cross the borders without so much as a medical checkup! Why don’t you read up on the subject of open borders and educate yourself?

    Just a general comment for Sandra and her readers

    First of all when did this become a political blog. before Obama was president, I do not remember seeing daily post on Bush.

    I have to ask are you a racist. Bush did 1 million wrong things…Tragic things yet I never noticed the a daily hate campaingn against him.
    I don’t know your natiionality but there is a such thing as inter-racial racism…

    Yet this man who has only been in for 100 days has had more than 100 neg. post on your blog…whats the deal with that.
    It amuses me that you think the job is so black and white. As person campaining can make as many promises as they like but don’t you think when they do finally get the job, things may change.

    Just really use your mind and think Sandra. The President. I would think that once elected you probably find out about hundreds top secret info that profoundly affect the decision making process. Ever think of that?
    Ever think that you can do a better job? Ever think if the other candidate would?

    This is not an admin position. Or a blog…This is a position of power over a nation. You cannot even rap your mind around the pressure of this job. Or the info. that top officials are privy to.
    All you do is try to convice or persuade all your readers to think like you.

    Also, being offensive by calling us “Kool aid drinkers” just because we don’t share your tunnel vision view of our President. Now you label people because they don’t share your opinion….wow.

    You seem to me to be a hypocrite. Always having comments off because you cannot stand the fact that most of your readers don’t share your opinion of a President that you could not even vote for.

    oh yea…no offense Sandra…just my opinion…Can you handle this or will you bann me from comments…

    Sandra I respect you as a person and I respect you having an opinion. I have never liked people to force their view on me or label me in a certain group because I think differently than them. I am more offended in the labeling than anything else. The fact that you do not notice your blatent disrespect to your readers does bother me. Luckily, I do not let other people drive me in different directions. I stay in my own lane and no my path. I try not to offend people along my way. I wish you cared enough about your readers to do the same.

    Honesty, I don’t know what will happen during Obama’s term nor do I know if I will always agree or even like him as President, but I do know that just like anyone else that takes on a tremendous task….I will give them a chance

  • anti-PC

    Where were these same people defending the pressures of being the U.S. President when Bush was making a bunch of tough decisions.

    I am no Bush fan, by any stretch of the imagination, but it seems like anyone who legitimately critizes Obama is a labled a ‘racist’, or a self-hater or whatever the popular word is for the day.

    Electing Obama as President of the United States was akin to putting a mere intern in a CEO’s position. The man is inexperienced. Period. And he will be rightly criticized when he stops being the puppet of Pelosi and Reid and starts acting like a REAL President.

    He is not the “authority” here, lets place blame where it lays….

    I have to admit I’m concerned… I work in the health care field, administratively, and we were respirator fit tested HOSPITAL WIDE. It was mandatory for EVERYONE to be fit. And if we didn’t go on our scheduled date, they called us looking for us!

    I can’t deny the fact that I’m concerned, and feel the need to be very cautious. I have two small children at home.

    @ anti-pc

    First of all read clearly. I had opinions when Bush was in office and I realized those same pressures. Although over an 8 year span you have more evidence and situations to give a conclusive opionion.

    100 days…I don’t think so. I also stated that I do not know if my opinions will change. The point that you obviously missed was the way Sandra reacts…and the comments she makes against her readers….and yes my opinion of the matter.

    If you want to stick up for Bush, by all means, have your say. But the comparison was made strictly to prove a point.

    You sound very ignorant in your response. I am telling you that I do not believe just because you don’t support Obama you are a racist. I am questioning Sandra because of how her website has dramatically changed direction.

    Now if you want to stand up for Ms. Sandra, that is fine but at least thoroughly read a post and realize the point before you spew off a bunch of nonsense.

    Its funny to me that you don’t see labeling a group of people as anything…be it because there, black, white, gay, or having certain opinion offensive. You didn’t seem to mention that at all. Is it because you label people too?

    No offense intended.

    yes i have read up on President Obama immigration policy, and i didnt read the fox news version. you might want to read up on the Canadian boarder relations with the US. President Obama hasn’t said he wanted an open boarders. he doesn’t have that kind of power. in addition, the homeland security agency wouldn’t allow that to happen.

    its funny how when black and brown skin want to come to America, their is a problem, but white Canadians cross into the us every day, and nobody says a thing. those Canadians come into the us, take your good paying jobs and because their skin is pink and pale its ok. they your money back to Canada everyday and its ok because they have white skin.

    fox news and the empty ravished faceless hate filled republican have convinced you that brown skin is bad and should not be allowed to inter into American and pursue the American dream as well.

    I won’t waste my time any longer addressing this issue with you since you clearly don’t know what you’re talking about. Canadians are not sneaking into this country. They enter the country legally by showing their ID.

    Be very afraid hon. Even if they custom fit you, those masks are still porous and germs can get in through the gaps.

    he’s not trying to cause a panic, while its cause for concern the CDC and other officials are montoring the situation and will upgrade the level(simialir to the terror level) when they see fit, though its in US everyone that had it has recovered

    President Obama said Monday that the swine flu outbreak is a “cause for concern and requires a heightened state of alert,” but is not a “cause for alarm.”

    He added that the federal government is closely monitoring emerging cases and had declared a public health emergency as a “precautionary tool to ensure that we have the resources we need at our disposal to respond quickly and effectively.”

    oh i know what im talking about, if you want to discuss political theory and different immigration models that the United States has used to formulate its immigration policy, we can, but i will consider it mute. i am educated in politics and can discuss it at the graduate level if you want too. im a little better qualified than fox news journalist.

    if you think that there is a fence or a check point on all roads leading out the United State into Canada, then you need to take a trip along the boarder in states such as Washington state, Idaho, Montana, north Dakota, Minnesota. there is no boader patrol or fence !!! who do they show the id too ? the stone markers ? the grass ? been there before and they will tell you, this is the us and over here is Canada. i didnt show any id and could have went where ever i wanted in Canada.
