Obama Picks A Political Hack With No Medical Experience as 'Ebola Czar'
President Barack Hussein Obama has finally made what he obviously considers a decisive move to combat a prospective domestic Ebola epidemic. Not surprisingly, it's the same move he makes on pretty much everything using an executive order. He's appointed yet another 'czar' to oversee things.
And what a czar!
It's none other than Ron Klain, who served as chief of staff to both Vice President Biden and former vice president Gore.Klain was also general counsel of Al Gore’s election recount committee in 2000, so there's no doubt he was one of the detritus high fiving each other after disqualifying thousands of votes from active duty military overseas.
Klain has absolutely no experience whatsoever in health, medicine or disease control. Instead, he's a fiercely partisan lawyer and lobbyist who among his other accomplishments figured prominently in the Solyndra scandal, the ultimate green energy crony capitalism scam.
It's obvious what's going on here. Rather than put someone in charge with healthcare or medical experience, this president has opted for a political operative who can be relied on to toe the party line, repeat the talking points and 'manage' the politics, rather than the disease.
No president has ever done anything like this before in a similar situation of this seriousness, to my knowledge.
A lot of people out there claim to be Democrats because 'they care about people like me.'
This should pretty much expose that nonsense for what it is..at least as far as the Obama regime is concerned.
Ron Fournier in The National Journal has more on this.
