Biden Blunder or Good Advice
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs issued an apology for Vice President Joe Biden’s comments that he wouldn’t recommend taking a commercial flight or riding in a subway car because swine flu virus can spread in confined places.
Biden’s office later sought to clarify his remarks by saying he was only urging sick people to avoid planes and trains. Biden would have used those exact words in his initial statement, but Joe knows that sick people are reckless and will use public transportation anyway not caring about the strangers beside them.
“I would tell members of my family – and I have – I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now,” said Biden.
Biden’s remarks contradicted a more insidious cover-up from President Barack Obama and the federal government. The last thing the White House wants to do right now is shut down the airline industry, big-city subways or the border with Mexico out of mass panic. Doing so would remind the masses that the “One” really can’t heal the sick like he is portrayed on television.
The media seems forced to make Biden look a fool, mainly because he provides so much help, but mostly to protect Obama. Putting all that aside maybe Biden is not all that wrong? At this moment in time it sounds more reasonable than what others in the White House are proposing – hoping that indecision is the solution.
If it doesn’t work out, then too bad. Obama will assuage his guilt over the multitude of corpses with another apology that is sure to make everything right again.
UPDATE: One day after saying he wouldn’t travel in tight quarters because of the swine flu scare, Vice President Joe Biden rode a train Friday from Washington to Delaware.
How great would it be to hear the “threats” used to persuade Joe to take one for the team? Sadly, we can only speculate.
