“Mission Accomplished” for the Impostor and

Local Miami media is doing this story because of the Florida connection...and pretending that their hero Obama has it all under control.

What a laugh.

Why was the area of origin of MERS not quarantined immediately?

He decided to avoid Florida’s golf courses.

Scotland sounds pretty safe.

Yes, it should all be OK now. Who had to read it for him?

I see big money for the pharmaceuticals in their future. Just like the last scam...and the annual flu shot scam.

Two reported cases in the U.S. and he gets a briefing?

Perhaps because it is related to the Middle East, but my antenna certainly perked up with that little gem. Perhaps there is more to this than I thought?

“Perhaps there is more to this than I thought?”

Oh? You mean like why did two contaminated hospital workers from Saudi Arabia come here now?

I think Odingo should go and have a first hand look, and wish the ill well.

Here is the entire briefing:
“Mr. President, MERS is Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.
According to the Profit, it can be cured by drinking camel urine.”

Obama “has been briefed” translates to “Obama was in the room, watching ESPN, while the briefer spoke to him, but Valerie Jarrett was paying attention and might have asked a follow-up question or two. Once it was done, Obama, still with his eyes glued to the tube, thanked the briefer and that was that.”

Exactly Doctor, exactly.

In an earlier period of my life, it was discussed how the ‘B’ part of NBC warfare was the hardest to defend against. As well as the most likely to occur successfully. As well as the least likely to ever identify the ‘exact’ originating entity.

“Health officials said Tuesday roughly 500 people may have been exposed to the MERS virus by flying on planes within the United States with the sick patient.”

Thank God! I’ve been so concerned that obama hadn’t been briefed. I can now go to bed tonight with the knowledge that all will be well.

Two Florida healthcare workers who came in contact with a confirmed Mers case and began showing flu-like symptoms have tested negative for the virus.
