POTUS Danger Fatigue

Obama1I don’t know about you but I’m ever so tired of POTUS crying danger. First with POTUS Bush it was the financial system – if we don’t do something to fix this within the next 48hrs the sky will surely fall and crush our tiny empty heads. It worked!

POTUS Obama followed this with: TARP2, The Stimulus Package, The Auto Industry Bailout, The Home Mortgage Bailout, Health Care Reform and Cap and Trade all of these had to be passed and passed immediately or our country would be in danger of failing. And it worked for him too.

It was this “danger” modus operandi, POTUS Obama inherited from POTUS Bush, which has plunged our country into a nation of Chihuahuas shivering at the slightest sound or movement.

Our fearful leader has found another crack in the sky and is determined to seal this emergency before it surely destroys us all. This dreaded wolf is actually a pig…a swine really. Like the Swine Flu of 1976 we are all in danger of being swept away by this deadly virus.

The 1976 Swine Flu killed one Army recruit at Fort Dix and spread throughout our vast country. POTUS Gerald Ford ordered a quick response, to this viral invader, with a flu vaccine which is credited with killing 25 people. But the Swine Flu of 1976 didn’t kill anyone else so it must have worked.

POTUS Obama declared the fast-spreading 2009 Swine Flu a national emergency Friday night.

  • Every year in the United States, on average, 36,000 people die from flu-related causes.
  • The 2009 Swine Flu has caused the deaths of 1,000 people in the U.S.
  • 225 million Swine Flu vaccine doses have been ordered by the government.
  • 22 million doses are now available.
  • It was estimated that 120 million doses of Swine Flu vaccine would have been delivered by mid October.
  • There are an estimated 307 million citizens residing in the U.S.

Whenever a POTUS pushes the flu pandemic panic button they always point to the hyper-deadly Spanish Flu of 1918 which is credited with the deaths of between 50-100 million people worldwide.

We never panic over just an ordinary flu epidemic…you know the kind that causes 36,000 flu-related deaths. It makes me wonder if this current flu panic attack has anything to do with upcoming elections.

In a variant of Pavlov’s experiment to condition dog behavior with the use of a bell and some food, POTUS Obama has rung the danger bell on the bills before Congress and we fed him with complacency and satisfactory polling numbers. With our response to his ringing of the danger bell we have conditioned POTUS Obama to continue to ring that bell over and over again all the while salivating over our anticipated response.

I feel like a pushmepullyou when it comes to statements made by this administration. Can it possibly be that every issue or statement from the office of POTUS Obama is make or break? It’s time that our current and future Presidents stop ringing that danger bell to activate the People of The United States.

“The Boy Who Cried Wolf” comes to mind. He, like POTUS Obama, cried wolf one time too many and the people wouldn’t listen to him when there really was a wolf.

It’s time for POTUS Obama to stop flailing his arms about like Robby the Robot crying, “Danger Will Robinson!”
