The swine flu vaccine - update

Sometimes I read liberals newspapers - just for the giggles. Today, my eyes were drawn to an article by the New York Times about the flu vaccines.
The article is quite unremarkable, the author is glad to inform the readers that president Obama is dealing very effectively with the flu epidemic. It says that Obama left little to chance, namely:
1. He created a website with public information;
2. He produced a series of public announcements which as the NYT says "featured fuzzy Sesame Street characters Elmo and Rosita singing in English and Spanish";
3. Obama even "staged role-playing exercises for public health officials". There were uncomfirmed reports that Barack Obama took an active part in the role-playing and came to the exercise dressed as a fireman, while Michele Obama was a Dominatrix;
4. And lets not forget the highly memorable and efficient appeal by Obama to the people of Earth to wash their hands and wipe their asses;
5. Lastly, Obama met with a lot of people and told his team to work hard.

In short, Obama was nothing short of brilliant in his struggle against the swine flu. There was one tiny little problem - maybe the word "problem" is a bit too strong, I guess we should say a "hic-up" - and I am not sure is even worth mentioning. Namely, not enough vaccines were made. Obama's administration promised in July to deliver 120 million doses of vaccine by the end of October. In reality, 23.2 million doses were made available to the masses. That's about 1 vaccine per 15 Americans - and Obama handily beat the record previously held by the Soviet Army, when in autumn of 1941 it was providing about one rifle per four soldiers on the frontlines with the Nazi wermacht.

I don't know about you, but I would say that this situation is typical - Obama wages a brilliant campaign filled with slogans and speeches, nice websites are run by well-trained people, and the president himself makes heart-felt appeals to the masses - but at the end of the day, well, people are left standing in the rain waiting for the actual cure. And some of them blame Obama for this?! The ungrateful bitches!

At some point, Obama will blew the casket at the annoying prols who whine about the so-called issues, and he will most likely sound like John Cleese from Fawlty Towers.
Scroll to the end of the video around 28th minute to see John Cleese, who finally had it and gives all he has to the guests of his hotel.

In fact, I believe John Cleese perfectly encapsulates the reply that Obama administration is already giving to the plebs - from complaint that troublemakers with nothing better to do are sticking noses into his affairs to the conclusion that his critics are nazis. I am really curious at what point he will tell the American people to pack their things and leave HIS country - and it won't be a moment too soon. It's the Obama country now, and we are simply renting our living quarters from him. If we misbehave, Obama will kick us out - as he should...
