This would be Today’s AYFKM? Award going to the Usurper-In-Charge who just loves to hate America!
Did anyone here think that he would actually be paying attention to the country during a time of crisis? I know I am a sick puppy after the last 2 years of dealing with Bambi, because I cannot stop laughing!
From the AP:
WASHINGTON – The U.S. declared a public health emergency Sunday to deal with the emerging new swine flu, much like the government does to prepare for approaching hurricanes.
Officials reported 20 U.S. cases of swine flu in five states so far, with the latest in Ohio and New York. Unlike in Mexico where the same strain appears to be killing dozens of people, cases in the United State have been mild — and U.S. health authorities can’t yet explain why.
“As we continue to look for cases, we are going to see a broader spectrum of disease,” predicted Dr. Richard Besser, acting chief of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “We’re going to see more severe disease in this country.”
At a White House news conference, Besser and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano sought to assure Americans that health officials are taking all appropriate steps to minimize the impact of the outbreak.
Meanwhile, Bush III is golfing:
ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Md. –took advantage of the summer conditions in Washington on Sunday to play a round of golf for the first time since taking office.
His motorcade left the White House at midmorning Sunday for the course at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.
Obama arrived at the course wearing sunglasses, a cream-colored baseball cap, short-sleeved shirt and khaki shorts. He shook hands with a few other golfers and waved to other onlookers before stepping into a golf cart driven by the course’s general manager, Mike Thomas.
Joining the president were, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and presidential aide Marvin Nicholson.
The Courses at Andrews Air Force Base is a popular destination for presidents because of its proximity to the White House and the security it offers on a military base. Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and all played there.
