I was joking around at the possibility of our nation actually having an "Ebola czar" just yesterday, and now Obama has actually appointed one. Let's play along!
Meet Ron Klain, a man who just so happens to have ZERO healthcare experience whatsoever, but worse, among everything else on his wondrous resumé, he was actually a lobbyist for Fannie Mae back during the lead up to the housing bubble bursting — a man who worked to convince Congress that Fannie Mae wasn't doing anything dangerous or putting taxpayers at risk with their activities just before the biggest economic crisis since the Great Depression.
And now he's here to tell us all Ebola has little risk and the government has everything under control. Oh GOODY!!!
Again, if this is as real as these government officials have told us it is, and not a total hoax bigger than the Wizard of Oz, this latest development has just officially transitioned our government from a poorly written horror movie to a full-on cartoon.
In this week’s address, the President discussed what the United States is doing to respond to Ebola, both here at home and abroad, and the key facts Americans need to know.
