Ebola Czar Missing in Action

Via the NY Daily News:

There was confusion Monday over the government’s response to the Ebola crisis — and mystery over what President Obama’s Ebola czar was doing to address it.

As the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said mandatory quarantines are not necessary for medical workers returning from West Africa, a U.S. Army general said that he and all his troops returning from Liberia would remain in isolation for 21 days.

Meanwhile, Gov. Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stood by their decision to go beyond CDC guidance, and require all health care workers who have been treating Ebola patients in Africa to remain in their homes for 21 days.

But some other governors, like Rhode Island Democrat Lincoln Chafee, counseled a different course. Chafee urged his colleagues to “ratchet down some of the hysteria,” since scientists say that people carrying the virus are not contagious until they show symptoms.

Through it all, the Ebola czar, longtime Democratic operative Ron Klain, remained out of sight.


Malfeasance, misfeasance, confusion, duplicity, and incompetence. The administration’s response to Ebola has been a veritable Disney World of douchebaggery.
