    You know he's nominated two candidates earlier in the year, right?

    Re: Obama will name Ron Klain as Ebola Czar

    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.

    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~

    Simple common sense isn't dead - it's just slow as hell. Congratulations to Democrats for finally figuring it out!
    “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.

    Re: Obama will name Ron Klain as Ebola Czar

    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.

    As I already pointed out, the SG position is currently filled with an acting individual out there by the administration specifically to be a fitting SG.

    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.

    Well, even their grey matter allows things to filter in. Especially if they are worried about their own asses.

    It is amazing to watch in action no? And yet repeatedly the 'usual suspects' will continue to remain silent on this part, until they think a sufficient amount of time for people to forget this mistake (in their eyes) has passed in the public's eye, and then continue with the lie that they never did any such thing, and compel those bringing it up to find the subsequent articles only after the liberal media have scrubbed the net of any such mention except for right leaning sites....It's quite a wonderful deception.

    Worse are those that will play on it that are in Government. Then they will say they needed the money to make response teams, and to set up hot lines, To put out information. All under the guise that it needs to be done, so that protocols and communications are all ready to go. Which for many places that will be the case that it is needed.

    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.

    It's a "shoe bomber" reaction. Most flights in and out of the United States don't connect to Africa.

    Sure, just open the vaults where all the extra money is stored - we've got plenty to spare!
