From the AP:

WASHINGTON -AP–  President Barack Obama declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency, giving his health chief the power to let hospitals move emergency rooms offsite to speed treatment and protect noninfected patients.

The declaration, signed Friday night and announced Saturday, comes with the disease more prevalent than ever in the country and production delays undercutting the government’s initial, optimistic estimates that as many as 120 million doses of the vaccine could be available by mid-October.

Note that even the very first sentence tells the real story, but you need to watch it closely..

…giving his health chief the power..

Getting the message yet? This isn’t about healthcare. It’s about power.The first step toward obtaining power in Obama style is to declare an emergency.  Consider TARP. “No, Congressman we don’t have time to let you read and debate this thing. It’s an emergency and we need to do all this now, so stop getting in the way. “

  1. In case they haven’t noticed, it’s just the flu!

  2. no it not just the flu.  It is Obama’s version of Y2K.

  3. I don’t believe the Swine Flu is a ‘National Emergency’, and I only think this will draw more panic among the public.Seems more like a distraction to keep attention from all the other problems that don’t seem to be on their way to being fixed anytime soon.
