    Obama will name Ron Klain as Ebola Czar [W:234, 285]

    Obama will name Ron Klain as Ebola Czar - CNN.com

    Washington (CNN) -- President Barack Obama will appoint Ron Klain his "Ebola czar," knowledgeable sources tell CNN.

    The president on Thursday signaled his openness to the idea to have one individual coordinating the entire federal response to any threat of an outbreak in the United States.
    Am I the only one who finds it less than reassuring for a man to be officially named the "Ebola Czar"?

    What's with Obama and his "czar" fetish?

    Wait - a lawyer and a political operative to be in charge of an international health crisis? Nobody hanging around with any kind of practical experience in the industry he could find?

    This appears to be "deflect the heat off yourself with a BS artist<". And if he's working with -homeland security- they might be anticipating for some areas or cities to be quarantined.

    Probably will have to postpone the mid-terms due to the threat.

    If something goes wrong, he now has someone else to point the finger at.

    Three cases of Ebola, and now we have an "Ebola czar"?

    Sounds to me like a cushy job given for political payback.

    That this "czar" is not a health professional but a political hack makes it even more clear that it is simply political payback.

    In other words, business as usual in Washington.

    Obama creates Czar positions for much the same reason as an iguana grows a new tail.

    Who?

    Klain previously worked with Biden when he served as chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee in the early 1990's. At that time, Biden was chairman of the committee.

    Klain is a graduate of Georgetown University and Harvard Law School.

    Ahh...Another Harvard Law School politician in charge.....

    What could POSSIBLY go wrong!?

    How about just naming a surgeon general?
