    Of course he wouldnt hedge the truth to get to the only place he had a chance of living. What was I thinking.

    Grow a pair. Be bold. The One is a horrible president and probably sucks at golf as well.

    Be specific. Or don't play the game.

    C'mon, you can do it standing on your head."

    Given that we have no vital national interest it was clear from the beginning that you would be unable to articulate it. That is common sense.

    Hardly; you think its no big deal to allow people from places with an Ebola outbreak in the US and that oceans will prevent it from happening.

    News flash, it didn't.

    No big deal? Its interesting you can't see the danger in that.

Infrastructure suffers, people dont make $ and they dont spend $. This is not rocket science. A true quarantine of communities would be a nightmare, not just economically but it would end up failing and crime and disease would spread. Will our troops fire on our own people? Will the police stay on the job? Will hospital staff? Look at what has just happened. All public servants will go home to try and protect their families.
    Paranoia? How much do West Africans from Ebola stricken nations contribute to the US economy? Restrictions will keep the disease out. Your attitude about it doesn't.

    So you know as much about Ebola transmission as the nurse who contracted it.

    Unless you have blood in your boogers and your boogers land on someone's open wound or mucas membrane, then no.

    Which flu? We are expecting....as history has shown...the possibility of a much more virulent strain any time.

    There you go! Proof that Obama would do everything in his power to keep Ebola out of the country, since the conservative/Republican party line is that he and Democrats have no voting base and no chance of winning without the poor!

    Ack, ok, a mouth sore or break in skin in the mouth. I stand corrected but otherwise, swallowing it it not harmful.
