I hate defending Obama.
vinegar attracting a fly just shows that Washington is all about protecting its power and not actually governance.
The mounting pressures of World War I, combined with years of injustice, toppled the rule of Tsar Nicholas II in March 1917. Forced to abdicate, he was replaced by a Provisional Government committed to continuing the war.

Obama STILL stubbornly refusing to restrict travel FROM West Africa. In typical elitist leftist fashion, he believes since the masses (correctly) clamor for a travel ban, it simply cannot be the "smart" thing to do! So, he has to resort twisted illogic of "a travel ban will spread the Ebola worse". LOL and god help us.

This can be common practice in government, and it isn't necessarily wrong in principle.
Choosing someone to manage a department, they find someone who knows management rather the skills of the department. That's why HMS PInafore has a satirical song about a head of the navy who has never been to sea.
If you don't think this particular man is good at management either, that's a different question.
Another Democrat who has worked with Klain closely voiced respect for him ("bright and lively") but argued that Klain had no real substantive managerial experience, as the White House intimated.
1)not a doctor
4) no experience in management
