WHERE\’S RON KLAIN? (CONT.)

Suppose a Republican President had to deal with a deadly virus that was festering in Western Africa and might migrate to the USA.  And suppose he didn\’t have a clue how to do it. 

-The President might latch onto a lamer-than-lame excuse – like, for example, that there was no Surgeon General in office because Democrats objected to who he/she proposed for the position.  Of course, media would have come down hard on that, reminding viewers/readers/listeners that if the stakes were so high – if so many lives were potentially at stake – the President should have picked someone who would be acceptable, even if it weren\’t his first choice.

-The Republican President then might unilaterally select a “Czar” to take hold of the situation – someone who could immediately make a difference in the possibility of that virus hitting our shores.  But if he/she picked a political operative with no expertise whatsoever?  Of course, media would have come down hard on that, reminding viewers/readers/listeners that if the stakes were so high – if so many lives were potentially at stake – the President should have picked a respected medical professional – or, at minimum, some level of expertise – but that picking a political operative made no sense at all.

-And if he picked the political operative “Czar”, and that “Czar” immediately disappeared, with no one able to find him doing anything significant?  Of course, media would have come down hard on that, reminding viewers/readers/listeners that if the stakes were so high – if so many lives were potentially at stake – the President should have picked someone who actually could do something to protect U.S. citizens from this deadly virus.

Well, we don\’t have a Republican President.  We have a Democrat President.  His name is Barack Obama.  And he did everything I posted above. 

The only thing missing – besides the “Czar”, Ron Klain, who is harder to find than Waldo – is the part that starts “Of course, media would have come down hard on that”.

Do these members of Barack Obama\’s Accomplice Media think they even have to bother pretending they are journalists anymore?
