And that was Obama's fault???

Re: Swine Flu

Interesting note from the article, but yeah it's all on the Dems

Meanwhile, red-faced Republicans tried to explain why they stripped $780 million for pandemic flu preparedness from the economic stimulus package passed by Congress earlier this year.

Re: Swine Flu

Wasn't Bush very supportive of people legally crossing the border for work?

I gotcha. I think I misunderstood what you were saying before.

I haven't been keeping up with this story enough, but I would certainly hope the CDC and the Department of Health are considering all the options to control the spread of this.

Re: Swine Flu

Wow it's great how this thread has become political bullshit. People are dying of this and it could be a legit international concern, but no lets just blame each other...

I say we just ignore firstdown's Obama comment and just move on with the discussion.

Travel restrictions under consideration by the U.S. to prevent the spread of a new flu virus may be influenced by politics more than science, the World Health Organizationís chief said today.

WHO doesnít recommend closing borders or restricting the movement of people or goods, Margaret Chan, director-general of the United Nations agency told leaders from health groups around the world in a conference call today. The disease, which may have caused more than 100 deaths and sickened more than 1,000 people, has spread too far and would be impossible to contain by closing borders, she said.

Fine, so all the decisions made in response to this are because Obama doesn't want to rock the Latino vote. You're right, it's all about politics.

For you it seems it always turns to the evils of Obama and/or liberals

Can you just let it go for one minute? Couldn't you have simply asked "Why don't we close the border (note how there is no a in border) until the problem is solved, would that help?" instead of throwing the whole Latinos voting for Obama angle? That wouldn't have at all been possible would it?

I am an idiot for even engaging in this. Damn me!

Dude, read the f*cking quote. If cutting off ALL travel in and out wouldn't be of much help why would closing the borders in the fashion you suggest be any better? Cutting off travel in only certain ways would be even LESS effective. Jesus Christ.

What is the definition of an idealogue again?

Re: Swine Flu

An empty vessel should be treated with respect. Sure, most of the time they're useless but when drunk it's a good vomiting container. When trapped in a car for long duration with no restroom in sight it's a nice piss container. When your chewing tobacco is all dry by god that vessel comes in handy.
