Was Biden’s Remark Designed To Stir More Fear?

The Obama administration runs on fear which might sound strange considering Democrats made this charge about President Bush for anything he did after 9/11. Time and again Democrats said Bush used fear to get what he wanted done. Interestingly, the first 100 days of the Obama administration have been marked by one incitement of fear after another.

Rahm Emanuel said that they could not let a good crisis go to waste and the Obamabots are certainly taking advantage of every opportunity during this economic crisis to get what they want. Obama himself gave us all the dire warnings and incited a great deal of fear when he was working to get his outrageous stimulus package approved.

Now a new “crisis” has emerged and it is the H1N1 Swine Flu scare. I will not rehash the way this has been overblown but suffice it to say that they have sounded the dire warnings from the start. As it starts to get more clear that the flu is not as bad as first thought and that the spread is not as bad the fear factor is starting to lose effect. Without the fear “emergency” spending worth billions of dollars will be hard to get passed and drug companies might not be allowed near the trough.

In steps Joe Biden to help with the situation. Biden has never been known to say much that is based in reality though I honestly believe he thinks what he says makes sense. The truth is that his ego is so big and he has such an elevated opinion of himself that he believes what he spews. However, it is possible that his latest words or wisdom were calculated (or given to him). On television, Joe stated:

Biden told NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday that he had urged family members to avoid airplanes and subways for fear of contracting the H1N1 flu virus.

“I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now,” Biden said. My Way News

After saying he would not go in confined spaces Joe took the train home.

Since this is Joe Biden it is hard to figure if he was just talking on the Today Show or if he said it to rile people up.

One would think Biden would not be so dense as to say something like this and then get on a train but this is Joe Biden and he generally says things that make no sense or that he figures people want to hear so it is really hard to tell.

Pretty soon there will be another “crisis” so this one will soon be forgotten.

At least we can still count on Biden to be the gaffe machine. Let’s face it, a blithering moron like Biden makes Obama look good and keeps America praying that nothing happens to the sainted won lest we be cursed with Biden at the helm.

    As a Public Health Nurse, I can assure you that one of the ways to slow spread of a communicable disease like H1N1 is to avoid crowds in small spaces.

    I don’t think Biden was particularly off-base in the information he gave, I think he gave it in the wrong venue, and I think H1N1 is less problematic than we realize. It seems to be less virulent, less communicable, and less dangerous than first thought. But I wouldn’t want to contract it.

    Elizabeth, one of the ways to slow the spread is for SICK people to avoid confined spaces. I am certainly well aware of all this but I am also well aware of the hype this is getting. We have closed schools for one case of the flu and some places are killing pigs and you can’t get H1N1 from eating properly cooked pork (if you live near pigs that is something else all together).

    There are far fewer sick people than well and the well cannot avoid traveling in confined spaces or the commerce of the country will come to a halt.

    Seems like a lot for fewer than 500 cases WORLD WIDE and fewer than 200 (as of yesterday) in the country. Keep in mind nearly all involved contact with someone who went to or came from Mexico.

    If Biden had said that he recommends that SICK people avoid traveling in confined spaces it would have made more sense.

    As a public health nurse you should know that H1N1 is no where near as problematic as the NORMAL flu we see in flu season. It is near pandemic in definition but it is not affecting the numbers that the flu did in the last season.

    No one wants to get it or any other flu but we cannot stop living our lives.

    Biden was off base the minute he got on a train because words did not match deeds.

      But if they can create a crisis and hurt public transportation to the point of having to take them over as well….we now have government motors, and government banks.

      Who’s in charge- Janet (from another Planet) Napolitano, or Kathleen ( lets kill all the babies now) Sebelius? Now we have both of them at the podium vieing for face time.
      We can only hope for a steel- cage death match pitting these two.
      Now I’d pay money for that, even if its Obamadollars, and I have to use my wheelbarrow.
      Second ticket- No holds barred Biden v. Emmanuel- hairplugs v. dead fish eyes.
