    Show us where Obama named him a Czar in any manner other than to indulge the press that is "enamored" with the term. The fetish, however, is purely of the right...
    The fishwraps of record seem to think he's named a czar. Below are links to a WaPo video on Klain and to a NY Times piece that suggests why he was tapped:

    Like his appointing a Political hack with zero experience to be the " Ebola Czar ".

    You should be " Good with that " too.
    It's like we are putting a cork on his fork so he won't stab himself with it. Though it's for our own good, not his. Did you see the clowns that he nominated to be ambassadors? What a disaster.

    A move that GOP Majority Leader at the time Sen. Dole still calls his greatest mistake .
    Yeah, how terrible that was. Cutting government, rebuilding the military from the disastrous Carter years, letting people keep more of their earnings. A proud, respected country. What a tyrant! 20 million jobs created well into the '90's, until Clinton raised taxes.

    Compare that to the clown in office now!

    Go sniffing somewhere else. The guy was a few thousand votes from sweeping all 50 States in his second election. That's what America thought of Reagan.

    ... are your confirming my point or attempting to refute it? . the former is correct; the term Czar was created by the press to short-cut the actual title. The OP questioned Obama's obsession with "Czars" citing that Obama officially named some one a Czar. .... I was pointing out that Obama never used the term, its a term of the press.

    Re: Obama will name Ron Klain as Ebola Czar

    The surgeon General grip is as bull**** political theater and partisan propaganda as the direct flight ban is

    I don't know if people are honestly ignorant of how government works or if their just purposefully dishonest hyper partisan hacks, but either way as a government employee let me fill you in on how things work with significant position spike the surgeon general

    They're never "vacant". We have an acting Surgeon General today, Boris Lushniak. He was named deputy surgeon General in 2010 under Obama's administration and is currently the acting surgeon general...which is precisely one of the main reason the government uses deputee executives, so that there is no lag in the position between official appointments.

    Bitching about the surgeon General is like bitching about the directly fought ban...political theater. We have one, in the position due to an appointment by this administration. Either he's competent for the job, in which case all the political posturing is simply using this crisis to bash republicans in a hollow fashion, or he's not competent in which case sure...we need to hurry up and appoint an SG and then we need to see why we had an incompetent deputee appointed.

    In regards to the Ebola "Czar", I can't fathom how a political apparatchik trumps an infectious disease medical professional.

    The political hack does a better job dealing with the press.

    Re: Obama will name Ron Klain as Ebola Czar

    So four people in America have the Ebola virus and Obama creates an 'Ebola Czar'?

    What's next?

    A 'Tuesday Czar'?

    A 'Lunchtime Czar'?

    Or maybe a '4:35 p.m. Czar'?


    So...thousands of Americans will die this year of the flu and Obama could care less. But 4 people have Ebola and it warrants a new 'Czar'.




    Sure, take Ebola seriously and do what can be done to keep it contained.

    But an Ebola Czar when only four Americans even have it...give me a break.
