Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that he would not recommend taking any commercial flight or riding in a subway car â€œat this pointâ€ because swine flu virus can spread â€œin confined places.â€
â€œâ€œI would not be, at this point â€“ if they had another way of transportation â€“ suggesting they ride the subway,â€ Biden said on NBCâ€™s â€œTodayâ€ show.
That contradicted more restrained advice from President Barack Obama and the federal government, and could hurt tourism during a recession.
The administration said a clarifying statement is forthcoming.
Good ol’ Joe.
Out of the mouth of babes………comes the truth – not Obama Administration spin.
Flap bets there is a clarifying statement as the airlines and hotel industry start to crash.
