A minister went to Syrian dictator Hafez Assad after a national election.
I have excellent news Mr. President!
You won 98.6 percent of the vote in the election!
Less than 2 percent dissented!
What more could you possibly want?

We're finding out that eliminating diseases like this or polio or smallpox and malaria are more difficult than we realized. Travel is common, diseases easy to pick up when traveling to other countries.
As proven by the recent outbreak, the spread of these things can be truly amazing and scary. I think it's a good thing for your kids to get protected.
When I hear of people who reject modern vaccines, I picture primitive native groups somewhere who fear the shots are to sterilize them or poison them or steal their souls or something. I think some muslim groups do this, and some Christian groups do it.
In this world, there's too many things out there trying to kill you. If you can eliminate the threat of some of them, why not? Esp. those that have a true danger to long term health for children. The diseases that have haunted man forever.
Then the best thing the Jerk-In-Chief could do for America's Healthcare would be to stay home, sit down and shut up.

From 2012:
Obama’s 262 Drone Strikes in Pakistan
A map of all the reported attacks—five times as many under Obama as under Bush.
Obama has ratcheted up his predecessor’s tactic of deploying unmanned aircraft into Pakistan and Yemen to kill supposed terrorists (even U.S. citizens).
Since Obama took office, media outlets have reported more than 300 drone strikes in Pakistan targeting al-Qaeda or the Taliban, outnumbering the Bush administration’s drone strikes five to one.

When it comes to keeping the enemy at bay, I'm all for showing strength.

But overusing drones seems like a cowardly way to show strength. It's like bullying hiding behind a pile of grenades.

It also scares innocent people who hear them hovering overhead. That seems cruel - drones appearing suddenly out of nowhere that can cause great damage and death - and living in constant fear.

He's kept us safe for 5 years now.
Who was President when we were attacked on 9-11?
Which President chose to ignore warnings from several agencies of Gov't that we could be under imminent attack?
Which President let the Bin Laden family fly out of America after 9-11 while there was a complete commercial flight ban?
And which President continued to read to children while our nation was under attack?? Even after he had been informed of the attack.
He didn't keep those people in Boston safe.

He didn't keep those people on that plane safe or the people that would have been killed if it had exploded over a city if the people on that plane hadn't acted swiftly to prevent it.

He didn't keep the Americans in Benghazi safe.

Bush was president for eight months on 9/11. Who was president 5 years before 9/11 while the plot was in the making and when terrorists were killing Americans left and right overseas? And who didn't kill bin Laden when he had the golden opportunity?

You are so delusional, it's scary.

Reagan raised taxes 11 times, huge deficit, sold dangerous stuff to Mideast dictators. Bush brought 2 buildings down in NYC, can't go to Switzerland, socialized car industry. Romney couldn't win an election against the so called worst POTUS ever, dog took ride on top of family car, was first person to implement Obamacare.
notable accomplishments.
Reagan enacted lower marginal tax rates in conjunction with simplified income tax codes and continued deregulation.

Reagan lowered the oil windfall profits tax.

Reagan also partially cleaned up the tax base by curbing tax loopholes, preferences and exceptions, thus raising the effective tax on activities previously specially favored by the code.

Because of the above, this happened.....

Reagan's policies are recognized as bringing about one of the longest peacetime expansions in U.S. history.

During the Reagan administration, the American economy went from Carter's GDP growth of -0.3% in 1980 to 4.1% in 1988.

A net job increase of about 16 million also occurred.

...Obama raised the deficit by $6 trillion. What does he have to show for it?

I sure hope so. It seems like the liberal mentality who voted for this president twice has sucked the strength right out of us.

We look weaker on the world stage now more than at any other time in our history.

Hopefully, people are finally beginning to see the real Obama - the "Non-Confrontationist-in- Chief" - and the nonsense we've had to endure will finally come to an end after the next two elections.

It's been awfully quiet
All you have to do is look at social democracies in Europe who eventually elected conservatives to fix the problems.

And how Obama is taking down the same path they turned away from.
