There You Go Again Joe

President Obama's press conference last night is being credited as a success. How could it not be when a question from The New York Times asked what "enchanted" him most about the presidency and his country.

Was this a presidential news conference or the Miss America pageant?

Regardless, Obama displayed his master showmanship skills and the media ate it all up.

That was yesterday.

Any sense of calm and restraint Obama might have projected to Americans with regards to the swine flu outbreak was undone in a single interview by his number two man.

Vice President Biden has once again left the American people asking:

What the hell did he just say?

In an interview on NBC, Biden told Americans not to travel anywhere in confined spaces right now.

"It’s not that it’s going to Mexico. It’s [that] you’re in a confined aircraft. When one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft. That’s me."

He went on to recommend against using the subway systems as well; a source of transportation millions of people depend upon daily.

So in addition to crippling the airline industry and shutting down subways, Joe has also managed to spread unfounded mass panic.

Just another day at the office for Vice President Biden.

You can bet your boots Sarah Palin would be ripped apart for a comment like this. The double standard sickens me at times like this.
