In Obamaland, it makes perfect sense to have someone with no health care experience as Ebola Czar

In government when someone cannot perform to standard in their assigned duty, someone else is hired to do it for them. Such is the case with the current Ebola issue, which is causing a reactive Obama administration quite a bit of consternation. Incredibly, we have a Secretary of Health and Human Services, a Director of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and a Secretary of Homeland Security — and now we have to create another new position — for what?

As reported by the Washington Times, “Responding to urgent calls from Congress and a fearful public, President Obama has tapped a former White House official to serve as his “Ebola czar.” Ron Klain, an attorney who worked for Vice Presidents Joe Biden and Al Gore, is president of Case Holdings, which handles business interests for former AOL CEO Steve Case, and general counsel at Revolution LLC, a tech-focused venture capital firm in Washington, according to the White House.”

“He will be the point-person in charge of responding to the deadly virus in the U.S., and will report directly to Homeland Security Adviser Lisa Monaco and National Security Adviser Susan Rice. Although Mr. Klain does not come from the public health sector, the White House said he possesses “strong management credentials, extensive federal government experience overseeing complex operations and good working relationships with leading members of Congress, as well as senior Obama administration officials, including the president.”

Ok, let me get this right, due to the failures of Dr. Frieden, the Director of the CDC, Obama has decided that we don’t need to bring in someone with health care experience but someone with “strong management credentials?” So, is this an admission that no one in the Obama administration is capable of managing this situation?

This guy doesn’t have a smidgen of experience in health crisis operations or domestic security issues – he’s just another “mouthpiece.” And why is it that Mr. Klain will be reporting to the dubious Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice? It seems to me this is more about Obama messaging and spin control rather than solving the situation and presenting viable solutions and courses of action.

And oh by the way, Klain was one of the geniuses who recommended the government invest in Solyndra.

Due to the incompetence of Obama and his minions, American taxpayers now have to pay someone to step in and do a job while others just sit and watch. Has anyone heard from the Secretary of DHS, Jeh Johnson?

The Times reports “Obama had said late Thursday it “may make sense for us to have one person” coordinating the government’s response to the Ebola outbreak, after the Liberian national who brought the virus to America’s shores died and two nurses who treated him tested positive in the following days. The president said administration officials such as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Thomas Frieden, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell and Ms. Monaco have other responsibilities and may benefit from having one person in charge of the government’s entire response.”

Excuse me, but what else does the head of the CDC, Dr. Frieden and the Secretary of HHS, Ms. Burwell, have that is more important than developing protocols and procedures to contain any further spread of Ebola in America?

So what are they being paid to do? Ms. Burwell is a cabinet member. This state of confusion in the Obama administration is why I stand by my assertion that US Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) would be best to handle the domestic command and control of this Ebola situation in America — they have organizational structure and a very specified task, purpose and direction.

Case in point that Klain’s selection is pure politics. “I’ve known Ron Klain for over twenty years. He is smart, aggressive, and levelheaded — exactly the qualities we need in a czar to steer our response to Ebola,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, New York Democrat. “He is an excellent choice.” If Chuckie Schumer refers to anyone as an “excellent choice,” be concerned.

Ron Klain is nothing more than a progressive socialist – i.e. Democrat — insider who can be trusted to deliver the Obama talking points. His leash will be rather short and held by Obama’s most dedicated henchperson, Susan Rice. He possesses no expertise in this area other than he can just “talk better.” It’s typical of the Obama administration to fix a problem by bringing in someone else to talk about the problem — after all, the real problem to Obama is that the situation needs to be explained better to us — not resolved.

Just imagine, if Obama has just made one single command decision — institute a travel ban — Mr. Duncan would have never entered the United States. Perhaps that means Obama will soon appoint a “Presidential Czar” and just outsource his own position. We can only hope..

Typical rookie, community organizer move. Either he hires a lackey from Chicago, one of his former radical punk pals or a bundler. This POTUS is the stupidest man to ever hold the office. But to leftards, the only thing that matters is that he is “our first black president”. Everything he does is okay in Libland because of his pigment and to hell with his ability to lead. This idiot is going to get Americans killed.

He’s NOT the “first black” prez, he’s the 1st bi-racial prez…genetically speaking. Allen West would be the 1st ‘black’ prez and I’d be proud to vote for such an intelligent man who has a backbone verses a wishbone 🙂

He’s a little too socialist for my taste. I love and respect the guy immensely, but he is so soft-spoken. I could definitely see him as Surgeon General. Col West shares the same principles, but understands that the Constitution, not current social convention, is the basis of our government.

The Republican response has been as sound as protection of our US borders. Not allowing flights to/from Ebola striken areas aside from military, Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, PIH, etc is a way to minimize out of control risks and spread of the disease. This would be untli such time the disease is stabilized. I’ll let CDC and our military in the areas decide that part. The action is not to create uncontrolled fear as much as to calm the fears or our general public. This is not the U.S. World it the United STATES of America. Our country is… Read more »

You republicans are so desperate to blame Obama for everything, it’s becoming comical. The new CZAR, has to coordinate with plenty of people, national and international, come up with new procedures and training for all hospitals as well as properly info citizens. A manager who federal connections. There are enough doctors out there, he’s pulling it together.
Especially the providing correct info, considering all the republicans been doing is flaming the flames of ignorance and panic. What better way to control your followers!!!

Compared to the day Barack Obama took office from a corrupt, idiot who bankrupted the country and we were losing 800 thousand jobs a month, started wars on lies, bankrupting this country for many generations. This country is thriving, especially the rich. The borders are NEVER going to be closed.The Spanish are already here. Been here for the last 40 years. The stock market is thriving.

Obama is the least corrupt president in modern times. Ronald Reagan had more people indicted and convicted from his administration and they still have the nerve to act like he was king. Obama was handed a crash. He has done less executive orders than the last 5 presidents. This country is far from crashing. Now, raise the disgraceful minimum wage. Someone has to help the poor.

Philanthropussy

I explained why his pick is a good one. Stop complaining and let Obama lead. American never cared abt Africa unless it’s already hit the fan like Ebola. Less than 5k people died in Africa and there are plenty of countries that are Ebola free. Ebola crisis in the us is only 3 weeks old, Stop blocking it’s not doing you or this country any good.
Reagan did nothing abt AIDS until almost 20k Americans died.

Every single time there has been any kind of crisis, whether political or otherwise, Obama skips town. But it’s not because he loves golfing so much…it’s because he has to have SOMETHING to do when the adults who are REALLY running the show send him away. And it’s a great tactic. The couple of times they let him stay home and deal with stuff himself, he had to open his mouth and start saying things the powers that be didn’t want him saying. He doesn’t go to briefings (how do advisors hold a meeting without the advisee?) and his staff… Read more »

Sorry, but anyone else would have called for a ban of flights from all Ebola-stricken countries, as that is what is expected — to first and fore-most protect the Citizens of the United States. All in any government position takes this oath; some hold it in their heart, believe it and live up to it, others don’t.

The African man lied abt contact with an Ebola patient. Lied . Plus he went thru 2 didferent European countries.

His job is not to help Americans as the Ebola Czar, his job is to buffer Obama politically. They don’t care about the country. If he was doing all he could to protect America, I’d support him but all he’s doing is throwing out moronic talking points dumb*ss libs are mimicking for the midterm elections. I wonder how bad it has to get to wake people up. For some the price of one was too high. For others I fear no amount of suffering will ever be enough.

Mrs. Patriot

It’s not about containing ebola. It’s about furthering the agenda. Progressives believe that “experience” is irrelevant because it is of the past; they are only interested in how someone fits into their agenda now, so they give no credence to experience and – crucial concept here – the lessons it teaches. Ponder that.

This is also why they dismiss logic and reason and will not argue facts. Bottom line is they don’t care about anything except advancing their agenda.

Nannette McGowan

The Democrat’s are saying their bigger concern is the struggling democracies and struggling economies of these Ebola infected countries. Yes, it defies logic that due to their politics and economies, we should allow people infected with a disease with a 70% fatality rate to travel and contaminate the rest of the world. For Democrats, political correctness trumps common sense every time.
