Ron Klain is a great choice for Ebola czar (hemorrhagic hurl alert)
Vox ^ | 10/17/2014 | Ezra Klein

Posted on 10/18/2014 10:09:16 AM PDT by mojito

Something I learned during the first two years of the Obama administration, when the staff infighting was at its worst: if you wanted to get somebody to say something nice, ask them about Ron Klain.

Klain entered the administration as Vice President Joe Biden's chief of staff. This was, itself, notable: Klain has been chief of staff to Vice President Al Gore, too, making him the only person to serve in that position for two different vice presidents.

But the esteem for Klain wasn't based on his resume. Rather, he had a mix of policy, political and bureaucratic chops that everyone agreed was rare. The policy people spoke admiringly of his policy savvy, and they all agreed he lapped them in political instincts. The political people admired his political instincts, but recognized he was better at policy. And everyone agreed Klain knew how to run an interagency process.

Heavy incoming flakery.

One thing you can say about the beltway boys - every good hack deserves another.

Serving the two biggest buffoons in modern American political history does qualify him for serving directly for Obama, come to think of it.

I guess Obola thinks Klain will scare that mean Ebola virus way far away into the hinterlands of the black ghettos, where no matter what, they vote DemocRat.

The fact that Obola appointed a political hack, and the fact that the left wing thinks the appointment is a wonderful thing, tells you all you need to know.

The democrats are circling the wagons to protect the President.,they will try to smother all negative news about Ebola until,after the elections.

Ezra Klein is a key person in the jornnolist activities, in which liberal talking heads coordinate their talking points. Anything he says should be considered based on that.

He has no medical background whatsoever which makes him an incompetent from the get-go. A perfect fit for typhoid barry’s administration.

I saw this piece by Ezbola K-lyin’ yesterday.

He skips writing and goes straight to deep-throat.

I noted he does not allow any comments on his utter lunacy.

There already was an Ebola Czar on the taxpayer dole, but she was MIA according to this from IBD:

The Ebola Czarina is tasked with transferring money from donors to the Democrats, not anything to do with Ebola, silly!

I wrote an editorial while on the plane today. When I get a moment to polish it and post it, I'll ping you.

It also means Klain will also be the Global Warming czar too down the road.

Why don’t we conservatives begin a campaign to have our own czar so we can listen to someone who knows what they are doing. I thought Rand Paul was a good choice.

See, the original poster, one Ezbola K-lyin', would give you other recommendations, too.

Have a problem with your car transmission? Well obviously: Take it to a community organizer!

Issues with your roof leaking? Gotta go get a Political Contribution bundler!

Do you have a dead tree that needs to come down? Get a K-Street pharmaceutical lobbyist!

Oh that's great. But what the hell does he know about effectively quarantining, controlling, and stopping the spread of infectious diseases?
