If this approach doesn't work, you could always take a leaf from the Kerry position you quoted above and say that Obama hasn't provided enough enough swine flu vaccine for such a national emergency, and suggest that Obama is incompetent in that way. OInly 11 million doses available now when the early estimates were for 120 million by this time in October according to PRI this morning. This explanation sounds more reasonable as a way of giving the President a hard time, should you wish to do so, having the advantage of having a minimal amount of speculation behind it.
It still leaves us with swine flu to worry about and the need to deal with what may be or may not be a national emergency. There is no certainty in the matter, and taking a position means that you have to put some prestige on the line and risk looking foolish. This President Obama seems to have done, as is the duty of a good President. You are taking your shot at him for doing so, which is your right as a citizen.
I'd be interested in knowing what you think the President should do in this situation. If there's a position that you think would be best for the country here and what that might be and why. I am sort of partial to what his actual actions have been at this point. I figure that if I ask you your opinion, I should offer at least a shot at my own. I have learned from your occasional requests for that when I ask you, and I think you're generally right to ask.
I hope everything is going well today, if today is the day. Best wishes, Bob Kaven
