I hate that word Czar..

Anyway, at least there seems to be a more dedicated response now.

Me too-they are only ever appointed to take the pressure of the President IMO-If something is going tits up,why not appoint as Tzar just in case a fall guy is needed..

Michael Osterholm from CIDRAP has made commentary on the progress in deciding if this is airborne. Apparently they are taking a through & measured approach. Whether anyone including this New Czar will pay attention remains to be seen.

I used to say that we should pick Presidents by the following method.

Throw a monkey out of a plane with a parachute, let him land, spin him around 100 times and whoever's hand he grabs first gets the job.

Seems like it's what happened with this too eh?

Well, Frieden has medical experience, and you all hate him so... it seems to me that not having medical experience isn't going to help or hurt this guy. What we need is someone to make sure everyone does their job. It's not like he's going to examine people or care for the sick, is he?


I can only hope that you are right.

Maybe you are.

But it is telling, in this environment of cronyism, that the first response is one of disgust and disbelief.

Which makes the term completely appropriate, in my view.

Something about that guy.... It's the beady little cold eyes I think. That guy does weird things off the clock.

if you're hired by POTUS to basically be in charge of all things Ebola, but know nothing about infectious disease, or have no medical background, which leads to you needing to either hire, or surround yourself with those people, than that defeats the purpose.



But he's already got people who know all about ebola - the CDC, right?

Every doctor I've ever known is totally brilliant when it comes to their area of expertise - and a total goober when it comes to organizing anything (Frieden?). Maybe we need someone who isn't a doctor to organize the doctors.

They needed a "face" on this so to speak. I think you're right in that this new guy is going to basically just be making press releases. I would assume you don't need a medical degree for that?

"Hey, Ron. Remember that favor I owed you for helping me babysit Biden during the election? How would you like to be my new Ebola Czar? Pay's great and you get a killer, huge, brand new office! Oh, and I'll make sure I sign an Executive Order giving you all sorts of cool political power.....

It's because it's Obama. If he were to come up with the cure for ebola tomorrow, the first response would be one of disgust and disbelief. You know that's true, Beezzer, don't deny it.

That's what I thought too, but apparently the job is currently vacant.
