Today President Barack Obama began to mitigate the damage that the arrival of the Ebola virus in the United States has done to his already dismal reputation. With the mid-term elections now only eighteen days away and the Democrats hemorrhaging worse than Thomas Eric Duncan, Barry stepped to the plate and is ready to name the nation’s first Ebola Czar. Meet Ron Klain, a Democrat party hack who formerly served as a chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden. Mr. Klain has no medical background but can be counted upon to be a reliable water carrier for the party which is what really matters. Just when you think that the Obama operation can’t sink any lower they hit bottom and set up a drilling rig.
According to an article from Yahoo News, “Obama taps former Biden aide Ron Klain as ‘Ebola czar’”:
President Barack Obama has picked Ron Klain, an inside-the-Beltway veteran and well-regarded manager, to oversee and fix the wobbly federal government response to West Africa’s deadly Ebola outbreak.
“The president has asked Ron Klain to take on the task of coordinating his administration’s whole of government Ebola response,” the White House said. His formal title will be “Ebola Response Coordinator.”
Klain, a former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden, “will report directly” to Obama Homeland Security Adviser Lisa Monaco and National Security Adviser Susan Rice.
His job will be to ensure “that efforts to protect the American people by detecting, isolating and treating Ebola patients in this country are properly integrated but don’t distract from the aggressive commitment to stopping Ebola at the source in West Africa,” the White House said.
Klain, a veteran of political knife fights like the 2000 presidential election recount in Florida, is generally well regarded in Congress by Democrats and Republicans for his managerial skills. As Biden’s chief of staff, Klain oversaw the implementation of the 2009 economic stimulus package.
Klain, a lawyer by training, currently runs Case Holdings, which oversees the business and charity interests of former AOL Chairman Steve Case. He is also general counsel at Washington-based venture capital firm Revolution LLC.
The announcement came a day after Obama acknowledged that “it might make sense to have one person” overseeing the process “just to make sure that we’re crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s going forward.”
Klain literally has credentials to die for. You might recall that back in 2005 during the aftermath of the devastating Hurricane Katrina that another incompetent political stooge drew savage mockery and scorn from Democrats and liberals. Michael Brown, the hand-picked FEMA director of President George W. Bush rocketed to national infamy as New Orleans drowned. Bush ensured that he would forever become synonymous with cronyism of the worst type with his proclamation that "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job". Brown had as much real life experience with disasters as Obama’s latest pet ass-clown has in epidemiology.
Naturally the Democrats are down with the appointment of a political apparatchik and brain dead buffoon to manage what could end up being a national catastrophe. Hell, with Klain’s appointment we are even more likely to experience a national Ebola outbreak. What on God’s green Earth is wrong with these people? Not to mention that this fixation with naming “czars” is creepy, such a title is decidedly un-American and is a better fit in one of history’s tyrannical communist regimes than a supposedly free country.
The entire Obama response to the domestic Ebola invasion – which his administration bears much responsibility for – has been underwhelming and idiotic. Days prior to his naming of a longtime party loyalist as "czar" he was promising an "Ebola SWAT Team". This should make Americans feel really good in the era of militarized police goon squads. SWAT teams are not your friends. They are the Kevlar clad government thugs who kick down the door in the middle of the night, throw flash grenades into the cribs of toddlers and gun down the family dog. It really makes a person wonder whether some of those sordid and sleazy internet rumors about El Presidente being a closet crack-head may have just a smattering of truth mixed in.
You just can’t make shit like this up!
