In US news and current events today, listen to Pres. Bush urgently stress the importance of being prepared for a pandemic back in 2005. In this clip, Pres. George W. Bush addressed the Nat’l Institutes of Health about having a game plan to fight future pandemics. Pres. Bush was reportedly alarmed after reading a history book about the 1918 flu pandemic where millions had died. Out of that interest came a grand outline for future administrations to follow in response to a global pandemic.

Listening in the audience that day was Dr. Anthony Fauci, dir. of the Nat’l Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and current leader in the fight against COVID-19 today.

So I 1st saw the video where Obama was talking about a Pandemic going to happen in the next 5 years from, 2014, which is exactly Covid-19. Wow he Knows the Future! Now Bush Jr say's the same thing, but back in 2005. The one thing that rubs me the wrong way, is He says the American's should take measures to stop the spread of the Virus, at 2:58 the smirk on his face concerns me! I Don't Trust this Man, I haven't trusted him since 9-11, when he had a hand in it.

GW Bush wasn't the greatest President ever, neither was Obama, but one thing both of them were; POTUS's who understood social responsibilty. Our current President has zero knowledge of how the social contract between the People and the Government actually work. His leadership boderlines on an autocracy, or the very least an oligarchy between him and a small faction of the right wing. This thinking has lead DIRECTLY to the current runaway condition of the Coronavirus. He, Pence and the right wing have the blood of 120+ thousand on their hands.

"even George W Bush looks smart compared to Trump." It is important to remember nobody else was really listening to him when he made this speech either. Bush turned out to be smarter than many of his critics were, foreseeing a problem before they did. Yet at the time, people were not listening because they were busy savaging him over all of his faults. His critics needed to learn to shut up once in awhile and listen for a change.

Plandemics are easy to predict especially by him. This guy could’ve predicted 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.

We always tell to everybody what is the plan. We say outbreak, we say pandemic, we say prepare. Not our fault if most do not understand why we know better.

Bush was too incompetent to prevent 9/11 but I think he would have done a better job than Trump in handling the pandemic. At least Bush was visiting schools, Trump was golfing.

How predictable he is! If I knew, I should buy some masks beforehand. At the pandemics, masks are in severe shortage and I could not find anyone in the place where I know masks are offered. Finally, I knew a website called POLLOO and purchased some. They are made very well and great to wear when I go out of the house.

So Bush is another evil a$$ who knew a pandemic was coming.
That must of been in the note he handed to Obummer when he left office. Another evil doer with blood on his hands just like his father.
