The Watcher’s Council
Every week on Monday morning, the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum with short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture or daily living. This week’s question: Why Do You Think Obama’s Actions On Ebola Have Been So Ineffective?
The Independent Sentinel: Mr. Obama is ineffective in handling Ebola because he sees everything as political. He doesn’t do anything for the right reasons.
Everything is done for political reasons with the goal of manipulating the public.
Mr. Obama has trouble making decisions. He’s a political coward. He’s so afraid of what people will say or how it might affect his political agenda that he can’t seem to do anything effectively. When he finally does act, it’s too little.
He has politicized every agency. Agencies are no longer doing what they are entrusted to do. Agencies we used to respect are now failures because they are working on the leftist political agenda.
Obama’s a political animal without the usual moral strictures.
He is always a day late and a dollar short and will continue to be for the next two years.
Simply Jews: Frankly, it is hard for me to blame the current POTUS in a situation like this.
The whole heavy and creaky government juggernaut is not a creation of the last POTUS but of many decades of out of control growth, decay and increasing inefficiency.
Besides, vigilance and preparedness is not something the government institutions are known for – in any country of this world.
I am not a natural born optimist, so in my opinion, things will get much worse before everyone in the health system will get a handle on what is exactly the right thing to do and stop doing stupid things. This is, unfortunately, the human way of learning.
JoshuaPundit: Honestly? I don’t think he cares about anything but the politics. Ron Kain is simply a partisan hack operative who can be relied on to toe the party line and keep things as buried as much as possible. Dr. Thomas Frieden was a little too obvious and kept tripping over his own stupid tongue, so the regime wants him out of the spotlight.
Two things, BTW that very few people are discussing. First, the connection between the appearance of Ebola and other infectious diseases like Enterovirus D68(AKA EV-D68) and the president’s open borders policy. EV-D68 has already killed half a dozen Americans and there are currently over 500 cases in hospitals all over America, particularly in areas where the White House shipped illegal migrants without any in depth health screening from Central America, where there has been a major outbreak of the disease.
And second, given previous actions by this president, the racial aspect. I would happily be wrong about this, but I have a feeling that if Ebola was endemic in Ireland or Poland rather than West Africa, not only would there be a strict travel ban in place already, but I doubt we’d have 3,000 U.S. troops in Dublin or Warsaw exposing themselves to infection.
