The Petro-States in Shambles Despite Obama

YAWN !!! So typical.... Same thing happened during the oil embargo. Saudis try to manipulate the market for one reason or another. And the very first reaction by petty partisan conservatives is to attack and blame the democratic president. Putin invades Georgia. - No reaction by conservatives. Putin invades the Ukraine. - Conservatives attack Obama. Bush gives the order to kill terrorists. - He's a hero Obama gives the order to kill terrorists. - He's attacked. Bush releases GITMO prisoners.... No reaction. Obama releases GITMO prisoners.... REACTION !!!
That's ok..... Bush's bird flu czar and head of Health and Human Services had no medical background of any sort. Just a business degree. Do you think maybe these czars seek the advice of the experts though ? You know, the experts that everyone in the media seems to be ignoring now because they aren't politicizing this, panicking and running around like chickens with their heads cut off.
Or for any other administration for that matter. The bird flu czar under Bush was also the head of Health and Human Services. And his qualifications ? A degree in business....

Baloney CptPam.... But the methods they used to try and keep it under control would not have worked in the U.S. If you actually care to inform yourself about what actions Cuba took in response to AID's you can read it here. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2688320/

Healthcare in Cuba can't be that much worse than here in the U.S. The average life expectancy for a Cuban is 79.4 years. Here in the U.S. it's 79.8. The U.S. has a higher infant mortality rate though. 6.2 vs. Cuba's 5.8 per 1,000 births. Seems to me your opinion of Cuba's healthcare system is as politically biased and wrong as Moores is of ours.

Actually ( according to the article referenced ) Only a few small island nations had outright bans on travel from effected W. African nations. And yes, it's true... Cuba has a long history dating back more than 50 years of sending medical teams around the world. They even offered to send more than 1,000 doctors and tons of medical supplies to the U.S. after Katrina. Do they really deserve to be childishly criticized for it ? Now while travel bans might seem like the best idea for those that are frightened. The experts key objections are that a ban could prevent needed medical supplies, food and health care workers from reaching the effected areas. So this president is listening to the experts, just like Bush did during the bird flu scare. And yes, even the top health official that advised Bush is opposed to a travel ban now. So why all of the petty political posturing now from Townhall.com ? Why the hypocrisy ? Can you really not figure out why the U.S. sent troops ? Have you never heard of a field hospital ? Is it that hard to understand why security might be needed ?

Obama's Biggest Fail Yet

I kept hearing this shrill whining. And then realized... Oh I bet John Ransom just put out another opinion piece. And sure enough....He did.
Yet, not all that long ago.... And worried that avian influenza could become a worldwide pandemic, - the administration of President George W. Bush did extensive studies to see if travel bans could help stop an outbreak. The results indicated that travel bans wouldn’t work and might interfere with the movement of crucial supplies and health personnel. “These things are not very effective and there are lots of unintended consequences,” said Michael Leavitt, who was Bush’s secretary of Health and Human Services. The WHO ruled out travel restrictions based on an assessment that showed the disease isn’t spread through the air, a decision that led the International Air Transport Association in Geneva to oppose a ban on flights to the region. “Aviation is a lifeline for these nations, and a provider for these markets,”
So again you had to resort to childish insults. I'm not surprised.... The majority here including the authors of the articles aren't capable of anything more.
I had heard about parents with children suffering from seizure disorders moving to Colorado to save their children's lives. But hey, let's ignore that and focus on the homeless people moving there. It makes it so much easier to turn it into a petty partisan issue. http://missoulian.com/lifestyles/health-med-fit/marijuana-refugees-families-relocating-to-colorado-so-kids-can-use/article_0e0670aa-dabb-11e3-8c2d-0019bb2963f4.html
