Typical of the Liar in Chief, he tells the nation one thing, and his loyal minions spin the news cycle. Behind the scenes, though, things are FUBAR and upside down.
“It’s not tight,” a visibly angry Mr. Obama said of the response, according to people briefed on the meeting. He told aides they needed to get ahead of events and demanded a more hands-on approach, particularly from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “He was not satisfied with the response,” a senior official said.”
Neither are we.
The outbreak was known since at least last December (2013). Still the border is wide open to anyone who feels like flying here from Liberia or the other infected nations. There is at least a 21 day incubation period (some studies suggest longer) where the virus is non-detectable.
Everyone who has visited those nations needs to be quarantined, period. This is life and death with the potential to wipe out millions. The UN and CDC have already acknowledged up to 1.4 million cases predicted by January 20 of 2015. This disease has the capacity for exponential growth. Drastic measures need to be implemented immediately. Anything less is criminal negligence.

Best part, from a Vanity Fair quote:
It’s known that the Armed Forces objected to 13 Days, which was about the 1962 Cuban Missile crisis, and withheld cooperation. They were incensed by the depiction of the late General Curtis LeMay, who clashed with President John F. Kennedy and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, feeling they were too “soft.” LeMay later described the incident, which Kennedy’s deft handling of probably prevented the deaths of millions, as “the greatest defeat in our history.”
13 Days is an excellent film that I haven’t reviewed here. It should be required viewing.
And shit, my novel HELL OF A DEAL takes on these topics in a frontal assault.

“The board is being used as pawns by the radical Tea Party that is using them to force their ideals down our throat.”
“They’ll be ignorant to the facts, but they’ll also be ignorant to civic consciousness,” Robinson told me. “There are a good deal of studies that show this kind of ‘patriotism education’ is associated with xenophobia, jingoism, and authoritarian personalities. And when those youth actually confront the reality of their country’s history, there’s a shocking moment of disillusionment and radicalization.”
