With over 1,000 deaths, Barack Obama has declared that the H1N1 virus or Swine Flu is a national emergency. Is this necessary? If so, why have the Obama daughters not be vaccinated? Read more below.

Obama  s Daughters

The Centers for Disease Control has recommended that children ages 6 months through 18 years of age receive a vaccination against the H1N1 flu virus also called the Swine Flu. However, because of the flu shot shortage, only children with chronic medical conditions are receiving the vaccination because their immune system is not strong enough to fight off the strain. This means that Barack Obama’s young daughters have not been vaccinated for H1N1. This, after their dad declared that the country is now under an H1N1 national emergency.

Surely if there is a national emergency and if the President and First Lady of the United States wanted flu shots for their daughters, they could get them. It is certainly connected to our national security right? I mean the president needs to have his wits about him 24/7 not worrying over sick children. Could this instead be yet another case of “do as I say, not as I do” from the Obama administration?

Some of you cynics out there feel Barack Obama’s “national emergency” over the H1N1 is politically manufactured, taking heat off of healthcare reform, and giving BO and his feckless HHS Secretary, Kathleen Sebelious, even more power. I’m inclined to agree.

But for you Obama purists, could Barack and Michelle have missed a national teachable moment? With so many parents across the country afraid of giving their kids the H1N1 vacine, you’d think The One would want to show leadership and confidence in his decisions, while providing comfort to a lot of worried parents by giving his own daughters the injection. Alas no – yet another disappointment from this administration. Obama’s daughters are not vaccinated for H1N1. You can watch an interesting video below with Don Imus’ Wife Deirdre saying Obama’s Daughters should be H1N1 vaccinated on TV. Holy cow.
