Why do I say this? Because Klain has absolutely no experience or training in the medical field. He is a lawyer, a key player in the Florida battle in 2000 to try and keep George W. Bush from the Presidency, a former Chief of Staff to Vice President Biden and former Vice President Gore and a principal allocator for the President of stimulus funds. In other words, he is a political hack of the highest order, always putting the political interests of his employer, in this case Barack Obama by his direct supervisor, Susan Rice, ahead of America's health and public safety.
It has been said about Obama by many that the man only sees political problems and political issues, that everything he does is based upon a political goal. Chris Stirewalt, a Fox News political editor, made that very point in an article in yesterday's Washington Examiner. Well, by hiring a political operative instead of an expert in epidemiology or public safety to deal with a situation that shows signs of getting much, much worse the President has shown his true colors. In so doing, he has given us a clear view of where he is heading with this issue and it is not a direction that will make Americans very comfortable.
Every day we see new signs of this disease becoming more menacing to Americans here at home while the actions of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and its director leave much to be desired. In the last few days we have seen an additional person in Dallas come down with symptoms. A Nigerian man died on an American bound flight following heavy vomiting, yet the CDC gave his body only a cursory view before declaring Ebola was not the cause of death. A cruise ship with a passenger who was exposed to Ebola was turned away from ports of call and required to return to Texas. And untold other similar stories are unfolding that haven't even grabbed headlines yet. And despite the growing fear that is being created, the government continues to keep the borders open and incoming flights from Africa on schedule.
Today we receive approximately one hundred and fifty visitors a day from the three country disease-ridden region of West Africa (Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria) and while even the adjacent African countries have closed their borders to nearby visitors and over thirty other nations world wide had done so, we here in America remain sitting ducks for this disease. And while we wonder where the next cases to show, which they inevitably will, the only thing Obama and his band of political hacks are concerned about it is making sure that Amnesty gets approved. That's what this is all about, folks, for if Obama closes the borders to keep this disease as well as more infections such as the deadly and paralyzing new enterovirus out, all Americans will understand that closure is necessary. That's just not something he is willing to do; his true believing dogma and arrogance will not allow it.
Be concerned, America, for we could be very close to a major epidemic, one which is a deadly killer, attacking us in full fury right here at home. And we have no one to blame but our own President if it does. I hope and pray that I am wrong. Be alert, be vigilant and do everything defensively to keep you and your family safe. And may God be with us.
