In case you think the current dialogue on pandemics is anything new…

Click here, and see the video just sent to me by our pal, Toy Insurance Bob, featuring then-President George Bush telling us exactly the  same thing 15 or so years ago…and then being ignored by congress, and President Obama – even after the 2009 H1N1 (Swine Flu) pandemic, and then President Trump until COVID-19 hit (though, in his case, he is aggressively acting to address it now).

I don’t know what your level of respect for Mr. Bush was at the time. But I’m suspecting that, whatever it was, this raises it a few notches.  Maybe a lot of them.


  • Thanks for the flashback. I do not recall the epidemics and G.W.Bush being blamed or ignored. (He was blamed for most anything for eight years including our Sept. 11, 2001 Attack.) However under his watch the media-maniacs made sure we had regular death toll during American War on Terror 2001-2008! That habit disturbs me most; the daily death counts as though the current disease crisis is some colossal bizarre game score!!!

  • I tried firefox and MS Edge and got an error when I clicked on the link.
