A totally unanswerable question given that Obama is not the current president dealing with current factors. Fun fact... during the H1N1 virus response over 1 million Americans had it before his administration declared it as a problem. Was that the right call or the wrong call? I believe it was the decision that was made and that's it.

Is "according to x poll" the new "specialists say"? Awful lot of convinient poll results for the media. There probably is some resemblance to the truth, but when stuff gets real they are very often wrong and as the Dem Primary has shown, their results are extremely unstable sometimes. Do polls even really matter? Can anyone trust them?

Sure, I'll buy that is what polls say. Obama was an amazing speaker, and the MSM never pressed him on bad answers. Trump's style of rhetoric is crude at the best of times, and even when he has good news, the MSM looks for openings to turn it around. I have no doubt that if Obama was our president today, we'd all "feel" a lot less worried (as a country), because we wouldn't be pushed into panic. Well, half of us wouldn't be. But he's not president anymore, so we really don't know what he would DO, do we?

He left the airports open to Ebola.you think he would not in this case? He was totally lucky Ebola was not that infectious, and you could see people generally had it. Unlike the Chinese flu.

You mean the deporter and Chief ? The one who got a Nobel peace prize while done striking civilians populated areas? Possibly, but I doubt it, especially if the WHO and china spread misinformation and prevented countries from taking the appropriate measures.

Yes, MSM does amplify all the stupid things that Trump says and he gives them plenty of ammunition. But to pretend that fox didn’t attack Obama every single day seems to be the hypocrisy you live in and fox did it with outright lies. Both presidents served the corporate master but one was a Harvard law professor and the other a TV reality host and Con artist.

He would simply draw a red line in the sand and Covid wouldn't dare cross! And then he would just drone bomb it everyday for eight years with his magic wand.
