WASHINGTON -- President Obama went golfing and the Department of Health and Human Services is short a secretary, so other U.S. officials took the controls Sunday as the Obama administration ramps up efforts to find and isolate U.S. cases of swine flu.
During a White House briefing, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that HHS will issue a public health emergency warning that will free up resources to address the outbreak that has hit 20 Americans in five states.
Richard Besser, acting head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said the agency is prepared to move millions of doses of the U.S. anti-virus stockpile to areas of early and potential outbreaks.

More and more like another Tom Clancy novel.
Go figure, liberals are such hypocrites.
Oh, that’s a good idea. 100 days in office and we still don’t have an HHS person. Put Napolitano up in front of the press again. she did so well last time. /s
Tom deserves more respect than that.
The big question is: Does Obama lie about his score and cheat as much as Bill Clinton? (Cheat at golf, that is...)
Didn’t he bowl something like a 36 during the campaign?
Paging any democrat willing to work for the Messiah as Secretary of Health and Human Services who has paid their taxes. Please pick up the white courtesy phone.
What is the problem? After 18 holes and a couple of gin tonics, Obama will still have plenty of time to appoint a health secretary to deal with this flu pandemic before the White House dinner party tonight. Give him a break.
I’ve heard that during the Eisenhower administration there was a cartoon in the New Yorker than showed Eisenhower playing golf. Someone from his party was speaking to the people playing the next hole. He was saying. “They just bombed New York. Do you mind if we play through?”
Did he call the President of Mehico from the 9th tee?
I wonder if the people he shook hands with on the golf course know he has been exposed.
Yup, little o was not bothered, because he is COOOOOOOL. Or perhaps it is brain-dead.
Why is Janet Napolitano speaking about public health issues? Was there nobody at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention willing to spew the administrations’ mantra that all was OK and this is no reason to stop the flow of illegal immigrants crossing the border?
What’s next, Hillary telling us that this is our punishment for the flow of guns to Mexico from American gun shows?
Will the African American community get on Obama’s case for playing a game traditionally played by European Americans? The media used to bash Papa Bush for playing golf all the time. Or does he get a pass for using a European American caddy?
Carnack retired with the passing of Johnny Carson. Plus I think Johnny was a Republican.
Good lord! Is that...that 'person' in white a broad with her hair tucked up inside her cap, or it that Obama?
