Boy they are really trying to divert people’s attention. I think people will see through this... I predict a backlash.

0bama needs a crisis to divert attention... and what better than one to make the world think that 90K people will die unless they get Health Care?

Obama can deny flu vaccines to the elderly and save money for more important stuff like Presidential vacations.

I like it how Drudge called it an Obama Panel..Obama loves watching people die, anything for people to get away from his deathcare debate. I said this last week that I wouldn’t be surprised to see Obama and his cronies spread the swine flu just so scare people enough to want this crap

How many people in the USA die from the flu every year?
Isn’t it about that many?
Is this going to be like sars, where you only have a 98% chance of survival?

40,000 to 50,000 is about the mortality for a “regular” flu season, I think.

I don’t think anyone can trust anything coming out of the government these days, and that includes the propagandists in the media.

Here it comes...this fall this may be the "crisis" they use to push through their Health Care monstrosity.

But the slumbering giant is stirring, and will be waking up hopping mad and alert.

This is Obama’s version of Wag the Dog. He won't go to war because he doesn't want to upset the global community, but he will manufacture a home grown emergency.

And what better one to show that the Government will take care of everyone? Swine flu.

He will claim that government health agencies will have saved or prevented 90,000 deaths from occurring, a number unverifiable. Why shouldn't the government do the same to health care?

Every year in the United States, on average:

•5% to 20% of the population gets the flu;

•more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related complications; and

•about 35,000 - 40,000 people die from flu-related causes.

The Obama team is working over time. I thought they were on vacation! His poll numbers must be tanking faster than we expected!

Virus poses ‘serious threat to nation’...

Speed up drugs; Needed in weeks...

‘Doctors’ offices and hospitals may get filled to capacity’...

All on Drudge.

34 500 is the average number of annual flu deaths 1975-1999.

IF (and it's a big if) A/California/04/2009 has a mortality RATE equal to "normal" flu, then it could get to 90K dead if there are >100 million cases.

And, yes, there's no doubt that any advantage to be had from this situation will be taken by Zero and his crew - no doubt at all.

Let's see, either Obama's Democratic party are a bunch of liars, or we are far more delicate than the rest of the world

Official WHO figures record 1,550 deaths from swine flu worldwide (as of Aug. 8, 2009)

Democrats are liars

If 90,000 Americans die from Swine Flu, then it will be because the Obama administration FAILED. They had more than enough notice, more than enough time, to have a vaccine ready and waiting (assuming the vaccine is effective at protecting people from contracting Swine Flu).

Obama = EPIC FAIL

I don't buy it. They are cranking out that vaccine fast. Back in the 70's people ending up getting real sick from the flu shots, I think some died.

In fact I just got over having some kind of flu bug. I had read about elderberry syrup doing a better job then tamaflu. Tried it, not sure if it really worked or not. I got sick about 5 days ago and this afternoon I'm pretty much back to normal. I'm thinking it works like zinc for colds does. It probably cut the severity down and the length.

Thank God that President Bush has prepared this country for the worse by stockpiling medicines during his administration. Too bad that Obama has not continued that effort.

If Obama and his minions were really worried about this...why have we not heard about their preperations to deal with the sick and dying? It is already the beginning of FLU SEASON for christ’s sake!! We haven’t heard of them doing anything(other than the stupid vaccines and they are even doing that piss poorly)!

They should have been ordering more breathing machines, antibiotics, emergency hospital beds and setting up methods for dealing with this so called ‘crisis’. They have done nothing..zip,zero,nada in that regard. Obama and the democrats are too busy pushing his marxist bills down our throats. If this really does develop into a genuine crisis...we are screwed!
