Was President Obama exposed to Swine Flu in Mexico?
Advertisements [?]
In the middle of a news story about the swine flu deaths in Mexico, Bloomberg slips in a frightening reference to President Obama:

"The outbreak coincided with the President Barack Obamas trip to Mexico City on April 16. Obama was received at Mexicos anthropology museum in Mexico City by Felipe Solis, a distinguished archeologist who died the following day from symptoms similar to flu, Reforma newspaper reported. The newspaper didnt confirm if Solis had swine flu or not. "

I'd noticed that CNN was making a big deal today about statements from the White House that Obama was feeling fine and even showed some footage of him walking across the White House grounds today. Apparently that's designed to squash rumors about the president's health before it gets out of hand.

Here's an MSNBC story that summarizes what's known about possible cases of swine flu in the USA as of now:

Call me paranoid, but it scares me that Mr. Obama was in such close contact with someone who died from the flu. Especially when considering the temper of the Republican party as lead by Limbaugh, Cheney, and Gingrich. It sounds like an "anthrax" type attack in a suspicious and paranoid kind of way.
