Obama Is “Handling” Ebola … with P.R.

More Interested In Optics than Solutions

Obama didn’t appoint an infectious disease expert – or even someone with any healthcare experience – as Ebola czar.  He appointed a lobbyist and PR flack.

American healthcare workers caught Ebola because hospitals are not using proper protocolseven today.

Obama is running around doing photo ops with recovered Ebola patients:

That’s a nice picture – intended to reassure people that Ebola is not very dangerous – but won’t do anything to contain the spread of Ebola.

Just as with the financial crisis, environmental accidents and food safety problems, the government is all about “optics” … covering up problems instead of fixing them.
