    We can do lots of things. The question is whether it's a good idea. Canceling visas from nations where Ebola has spread would be a good idea. Canceling flights wouldn't necessarily keep at risk people out.

    Then maybe the guy in question should've stuck to medicine instead of shooting his big yap off about guns.

    Still blaming Texas. Pathetic.

    Re: Obama will name Ron Klain as Ebola Czar

    Why is Sen. McConnell filibustering the Surgeon General again?
    Why does Bush-43 get to have a Surgeon General to fight AIDs but Obama doesn't get to have one to fight ebola again?
    Why does the GOP play politics with life and death issues again?
    The same McConnell who whined for straight-up-and-down votes last decade and got them?

    Why would you say something so completely nonsensical as this about not having the Nation's Doctor?
    And then complain that President Ebola is to blame.

    The GOP cuts of a billion to the CDC are to blame.
    The Texas hospital that blatantly and incompetently dropped the ball are to blame.
    Shame on the GOP for worsening the ebola problem and then blaming the President.
    Just as they've done with every overseas problem we have .

    Politics FIRST.
    (sorry needed those characters)

    Indeed, as is most typical with Obama. Everything he does, every decision he makes, is ruled by politics. At least this hasn't escaped media attention, this time (oh but so many other times for sure).

    Critics: Ebola appointment latest in missteps by officials

    Obama’s Newly-Appointed ‘Ebola Czar’ Happens to Be Lacking in One Important Area of Expertise

    Agreed, Klain is at worse, a political hack, and at best a politically motivated appointment.

    Klain joined the Clinton-Gore campaign in 1992 and was involved in both of Bill Clinton's campaigns. He oversaw Clinton's judicial nominations, and was General Counsel to Al Gore's recount committee in 2000 election. Klain worked closely with Clinton aide Bruce Reed in formulating Clinton's "100,000 cops" proposal of his 1992 campaign,[citation needed] which has been described as "not [being] the primary or even secondary factor in the dramatic reduction in crime during the 1990's".[2] In the White House, Klain was Associate Counsel to the President, directing judicial selection efforts, and led the team that won confirmation of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In 1994 he became Chief of Staff and Counselor to Attorney General Janet Reno and in 1995 Assistant to the President, and Chief of Staff to Al Gore.[citation needed]

    Gore campaign 1999-2000

    During Klain's tenure as Gore's Chief of Staff he was seen as too loyal to Clinton by some longtime Gore advisors and in 1999 feuding broke out between Clinton and Gore loyalists in 1999. Klain was ousted by Gore campaign chairman Tony Coelho in August 1999. In October 1999, he joined the Washington, D.C. office of the law firm of O'Melveny & Myers. In 2000, Klain returned to the Gore campaign, once Coelho was replaced by William M. Daley who hired Klain for a senior position in the Gore campaign and then named him General Counsel of Gore's Recount Committee.[citation needed]

    Lobbying

    Klain was signed up as a lobbyist for Fannie Mae until 2005 whom he helped overcome "regulatory issues".[3]
    2004–2008

    During the 2004 US presidential campaign early primaries, Klain worked as an adviser to Wesley Clark. During the general election, Klain was heavily involved behind the scenes in John Kerry's campaign.[4]
    Klain served as an informal adviser to Evan Bayh, who is from Klain's home state of Indiana. In 2005, Klain left his partnership at O'Melveny & Myers to become Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Revolution LLC, a technology venture capital firm, launched by AOL co-founder Steve Case.[citation needed]. As of October 2014 he is General Counsel at Revolution LLC and President of Case Holdings.[5]
    Obama administration 2008-present

    On November 12, 2008, Roll Call announced that Klain had been chosen to serve as Chief of Staff to Vice President Joe Biden, the same role he served for Gore.[6][7][8]
    Klain had worked with Biden previously, having served as counsel to the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary while Biden chaired that committee and assisted Biden's speechwriting team during the 1988 presidential campaign.[9]
    Klain was mentioned as a possible replacement for White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel,[10] but opted to leave the White House for a position in the private sector in January 2011.[8]

    In 2011, amid concerns about whether the now-defunct solar-panel company Solyndra was viable, Klain approved an Obama visit, stating, "The reality is that if POTUS visited 10 such places over the next 10 months, probably a few will be belly-up by election day 2012."[11]
    On October 17, 2014, Klain was appointed the "Ebola response coordinator" or, less officially, Ebola "czar"[5] by President Obama, to help coordinate the nation's response to the Ebola virus.[5][12][13][14] His appointment has been criticized because he "has no record or expertise in Ebola specifically or public health in general".[13]
    Ron Klain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Lobbyist? What happened to that promise from Obama?
    For Fannie Mae to 'overcome "regulatory issues"'? Like not over exposing Fannie Mae to toxic mortgage risk?

    This is a guy who's judgement we can trust? I'm thinking not.

    Yeah, this guy, no practical leadership experience, no medical experience, IMHO no qualifications to be Ebola Czar. Rather than someone with leadership experience and capabilities, Thad Allen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, appoint a political hack.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Then he needs to find one that they all can agree on. One that is not politically motivated to be a yes man.
