It would be quite consistent with a narcissistic personality to surround themselves with incompetence. (beginning with Joe Biden.....)
Such pathology runs completely at odds with true leadership....
true leadership modestly seeks out and defers to the best and the brightest.
Rigid ideologues seek compliance, leadership seeks solutions.
Incrementally, and always under the guise of "fairness", "equality", and "social justice", the US Constitution has been deceitfully interpreted in ways that remove all limitations on central authority...and place them on the people.
A growing number of Democrats are pressuring President Obama to ban flights to Ebola-ravaged countries despite repeated warnings from global health leaders that closing borders could accelerate the crisis. The three Democrats — Reps. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Dave Loebsack (D-Iowa) – are among the growing handful in their party who have publicly criticized the Obama administration’s response to Ebola.
Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla) also called for travel bans earlier this week, joining dozens of Republicans who have urged for similar action. In their letter, the lawmakers also told Obama to consider quarantining passengers who may have been exposed to ensure they are not infected.....snip~

“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
The freak out over czars is ridiculous. Do I think we needed this and couldn't fill it with a guy already in the bureaucracy? No. Do I care they made the temporary position? No. Do I think it should've been someone with medical experience? Yes. But this has been addressed repeatedly in this thread, so I'm going yo double back on a bit of hyper partisan propaganda thst continues to be spewed and isn't called out intelligently
Specifically, this partisan propaganda regurgitation.

"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Already they were talking about some guy who made a portable transfer tube. One time use......13k. He had designed it for the outbreak of Chem Warfare. Lives somewhere here in Illinois. Hospitals across the globe have been inquiring. He wants to see ambulances with them. That's one time use.....then would be replaced, so the Ambulance doesn't have to be taken out of commission and deconned. Or whatever mode of transportation.
He even donated one to O'Hare Airport.
Which by the way Rahm Emanuel Chicago Mayor......knows how to milk a crisis. So to does Governor Quinn.....who announced yesterday he was creating a Task Force for the State to handle any Ebola issues. Emanuel wants one for Chicago too.
