So this is the new fall guy, huh? He'll be coming up soon on the list of Obama appointees who resigns, I think.

Isn't Barry the greatest leader in human history?

I hate that word Czar..

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


Yeah me too. Reminds me of communist Russia.


That is exactly where the word comes from


and the implied meaning is an authoritarian dictator

with no regard for "the people"

Guess that is why Obama has appointed so many.

Two of his greatest achievements according to Wikepedia

Signed off on the stimulus money given to now bankrupt Solyndra

Convinced the government that Fannie Mae wasn't doing anything wrong, just before the housing bubble burst

He was chief of staff for Al Gore, the #1 Environmentalist
We all know that Environmentalists think there are too many humans and that depopulation is needed.

Hmmmmmmmm And this big money finance political hack is going to save the population of the US from Ebola?

Sorry for not reading entire thread. This may have already been mentioned...
This link about the Pandemic Drills sure comes across as more of a financial crisis to be managed than a "humanitarian" or "health" crisis. So, Obama's naming this guy as czar makes all the sense there is, (in this crazy, up-side down universe we're living in right now, that is!)

Of course, if one thinks Obama's choice is good

Then one must think of Ebola, an illness, an illness that kills 90% of its victims
as a financial opportunity.

That's why he choose a financial person. I get it now.

This type of response is sooooooo not surprising. It obviously doesn't matter who Obama picked to oversee this issue. The conservatives/Republicans/tea partiers are going to find fault with the choice - whomever it is. If it were a doctor, they would say "why did he choose a doctor? We don't need a doctor - we already have enough doctors with the CDC." If it were a person not involved in politics, they would say, "how is this person going to deal with the politics of the situation, they don't have any experience in politics." It doesn't matter who is chosen because, it's Obama that made the choice. ANY choice is the wrong choice. That's politics for you.

There's a big big hidden agenda with this so called "czar".
What a load of garbage.....a HUGE pile of it and it STINKS!

In my opinion there is many more people that have it.
Just hidden extremely well for now.....

I can tell you one thing for sure, that littler piggy's face is going to be the next sacrifice of this administration if ebola gets spreads wider

That is why they don't need an "expert" to sound more intelligent than those running the nation.

That is why the littler pig was chosen.

CNN is just reporting this.

Yeah the CZAR, a magic man, a fixer with the elixir, rock and rola getting rid of ebola, "Yeah thats the ticket".

Does it matter WHO Obama picks?

If the government actually does something and stops the spread I could really care less who Obama appoints.

He could pick a Kardashian as Czar, but if it got it done, then boffo for her!

This man is part of the ever-ending revolving door (to steal a coined-phrase from OpenSecrets). Why have a czar? I don't understand -- considering we have an interim Surgeon General -- shouldn't this be their job? Isn't being the "top doc" something? I am sure its all the Republican's fault just like Ebola is all Obama's fault and so goes the merry-go-round....

He is a "seasoned crisis response operative".

There you have it. He is a CYA man (cover your ass for those that don't know American vernacular). This is a health crisis. He has no record or expertise in Ebola specifically or public health in general.

Crisis Management (Obama) requires a crisis response operative (Klain).

Oh...and it's at tax-payer expense. I wonder what his salary will be.

Is a big difference see this man will take the responsibility to keep us all "SAFE" from ebola.

Sadly if ebola spread he will also take the blame for it, while the morons keep themselves safe.

Still I see it as another waste of tax dollars on a bureaucratic position that the man have no business to be unless he is another idiot to make more bureaucratic decisions of things that he had no idea how to handle.

Yes another idiot.
