Not at the rate he has brought us................thousands of People of dead because of Obama's policies---between arming the Mexican Cartel, funding terrorists, and allowing illegals and visa holders with communical diseases----the death toll I am afraid is about soar even further.

Kbutler • 9 years ago

Thousands of Christians and Yadzidis, killed, tortured, raped, sold into slavery. But, but, but, poor obama tried really hard to get SOFA, he really tried, he even sent Biden.

randomfactor • 9 years ago

Bush gave us SOFA. Which you know perfectly well.

Konos • 9 years ago

Right after obama let all those illegal alien children, who weren't properly medically screened into our public schools we have an outbreak and 538 infected cases

verafish • 9 years ago

This outbreak has been traced to a child traveling from Europe to Missouri. Best do your homework before commenting further. P.S. The US is the *source* of the enterovirus, from which all others have grown. Got it? No one "brought it here" - it started here. How d'you like them apples?

Konos • 9 years ago

LOL!! PHEW good one!! go dig your head in the sand granny

verafish • 9 years ago

So, what you're saying is that you have no actual interest in learning the truth about the enterovirus, you just made some silly connection in your own mind between the recent immigration crisis and this outbreak, and anything that refutes your little made up scenario is laughable? Got it. Bye now.

a study published in Virology Journal,
found EV-D68 among some of the 3,375 young, ill people tested in eight
Latin American countries, including the Central American nations of El
Salvador and Nicaragua, in 2013.

verafish • 9 years ago

AhahaHA! Now you've got me laughing, thanks. Next time you want to "prove" something, try linking to a reputable source rather than private blogs and/or fringe-right sites. And here's another tip: when quoting a "publication", it is best to reference a well-respected, time-tested publication of distinction.

Konos • 9 years ago

Virology Journal isn't part of a right wing think tank numb nuts You can keep living in that bubble of yours, but one day it's gonna burst

jamie • 9 years ago

Wow, you people need to stop! Seriously. Your attaching your rude behavior onto a story of a 4 year old child's death. Please just stop, have empathy, say I'm sorry for their loss, wish them well or God be with them but please stop acting in this manner and have some respect.

verafish • 9 years ago

I think it's so much fun when a poster reverts to name-calling and insults. It's at that point that it becomes obvious you've got nothing else. Which also explains that you didn't even *read* the article you quoted in Virology Journal (...which I never said was a right wing think tank, btw.) or you'd know that that report does *not* (NOT) refer to EV-D68. L.M.A.O. You've been fun, junior.

Human rhinoviruses and enteroviruses in
influenza-like illness in Latin AmericaPage 2 of the study " In addition, we detected multiple EV D68-
types, including EV-D68, EV-C99, EV-C104, EV-C109,and EV-B110"

verafish • 9 years ago

Not reported in the media. You can read about the nineteen original cases reported by Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri at the CDC website. The uptick in cases requiring hospitalizations started around the beginning of August. A hospital in Chicago began reporting cases requiring hospitalization soon after. Because this is such a common ailment - with the exception of the need for hospitalization - there isn't a need for the public to be notified of the source in this year's outbreak.

Not if it is the truth! The truth seems to be damned these days.

jkatze • 9 years ago

It is not the truth that Lori is damning. She is damning your disrespectful, insensitive, and selfish remark. This article is about a terrible loss to a family. It is not a platform for your prattle.

Konos • 9 years ago

Children coming over the border in south America are exclusively infected with the D68 virus, your not fooling anyone.

Guest • 9 years ago
Konos • 9 years ago

CDC may be pretending that they have no idea where this outbreak came
from, but for months now similar neurological illness outbreaks have
been occurring in border towns throughout the U.S.. In fact, back in
February of 2014, an outbreak of a polio-like illness caused as many as
25 children in California to come down with paralyzed limbs and little
hope of recovery. According to the BBC, at least five of these cases
were directly linked to enterovirus-68, proving the CDC has known about
this outbreak for quite some time now.

In July of 2014, the
Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security confirmed that
communicable diseases were being spread throughout detention centers set
up to house incoming illegal immigrant children. These children were
then being dumped in unsuspecting communities around the country.

Joe Schmoe • 9 years ago

I'm guessing you voted for Obama, despite your assurances otherwise.

FDP • 9 years ago

Alexander Stuy--Not relevant. You just missed the boat again. Politics of ANY nature are offensive and incredibly inappropriate considering the nature of the article and death of a child. At what point did you decide that everyone (and I imagine, every topic) is fair game for promoting your personal beliefs.?. That kind of thought process has to to be one of the most negative phenomena resulting from the net. SO, you would make your comment face to face with anyone you know experiencing the sudden death of a child?

randomfactor • 9 years ago

I voted for Obama, and the assertion that this is his fault, or the fault of immigrants, is reprehensible.

Guest • 9 years ago

How about an unintended consequence of Obama, Pelosi, and Reid's amnesty and open borders policy so they can have more Democrat voters? They should be put on trial for accomplices to murder.

TJ • 9 years ago

Oh yeah.. And lets put them on trial for all the people in the world dying of any and everything... for the planes that crash in the world... for your parents dying of old age.. etc etc.. IGNORANT IGNORANT IGNORANT.... AND JUST SO DAMN STUPID...

Let all of Obama's "amnesty children" move in with you then.

Platitudes.....worthless platitudes.

somehistorian • 9 years ago

Wait until South & Central America is infected with the EBOLA virus. If that happens, people will flood our porous southern borders in droves....That boy's family & others who have lost a child to this enterovirus 68, should call Obama & staff and express there thoughts, for having these Central American illegal's infect our kids. It's political because he, Obama made it so.

Tom • 9 years ago

Diversity does. Time to repeal the 1965 Immigration Act.

randomfactor • 9 years ago

And replace it with something allowing easier routes to citizenship. Amnesty is a good start.
