So what would make Barack Obama cancel a fund raiser?
ISIS on the move? Nope. Beheadings of Americans? Nope. On the golf course in ten minutes. A first American Ebola victim? Took a few more minutes, but straight to the golf course. A second beheading victim? Nope.
So what did it take? A poll. Obama’s ratings are sinking faster than the Titanic.
President Barack Obama’s approval rating is at the lowest level of his presidency, a new poll says.
According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Wednesday, 40 percent of Americans approve of Obama’s job performance, the lowest score the poll has recorded since he took office. His rating is down 1 point from September.
Now in panic mode, Obama has canceled fundraisers for Thursday as well. He wants you to know he’s concerned and on the job. It’s all about the optics.
Where did it go wrong for Obama? pleads Amie Parnes at The Hill. Well, Amie, let’s do a little review first.
You can keep your plan no matter what.
You can keep your doctor.
You’ll save $2500 per year.
It’s not a tax.
Al Qaeda is on the run
Al Qaeda is decimated
ISIS is the JV
We leave behind a stable and sovereign Iraq
I didn’t set a red line, the world did
I got bad intel
The tide of war is receding
The world is less violent than it has ever been
I ended the war in Iraq.
200 rounds of golf
You’d be well advised not to believe a thing Obama says.
Remember when Obama assured us that Ebola wouldn’t see an outbreak on US shores?
First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.
It’s hard to believe what has gone down since.
Ebola is a Biosafety Level Four Pathogen. That’s as dangerous as it gets. The use of positive pressure suits is highly recommended when handling the Ebola virus, Ebola victims or any wrappings with which they come into contact, including bed sheets and refuse. What most don’t know is that specific protocols are required not only for contact with Ebola victims but in the removal of the biohazard suits as well.
Despite being assured by Obama and Tom Frieden, the Obama appointed hack who runs the CDC, all is not well.
The Obama regime raided the Gibson guitar factory in 2009 and 2011, claiming that the specific type of wood used in some Gibson guitars is not permitted into this country. Bagpipes have been confiscated at the border.
Gibson guitar wood not allowed in the US.
Bagpipes not allowed in the US.
Ebola? Sure, why not?
Now word comes that the second Ebola victim flew back and forth to Cleveland with a low grade fever the day before she became symptomatic. She even called the CDC before she boarded the plane. The news is chock full of stories that leave you incredulous:
Obama promises ‘much more aggressive’ response to Ebola
Obama cancels campaign trip; vows Ebola ‘SWAT team’
Juxtapose these articles with Curt’s:
Obama: I Hugged and Kissed Nurses Who Treated Ebola Victims
Are you freaking kidding me? We’re not done yet. From our illustrious CDC comes this:
CDC: You Can Give—But Can’t Get—Ebola on a Bus
Obama tell us:
“You Can’t Get Ebola ‘Sitting Next to Someone on a Bus”
At the same time the CDC advises:
‘Avoid Public Transportation’
Here’s the crime in this episode:
The hospital that treated Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan had to learn on the fly how to control the deadly virus, adding new layers of protective gear for workers in what became a losing battle to keep the contagion from spreading, a top official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday.
“They kept adding more protective equipment as the patient Duncan deteriorated. They had masks first, then face shields, then the positive-pressure respirator. They added a second pair of gloves,” said Pierre Rollin, a CDC epidemiologist.
The nurses at Texas Health Presbyterian have complained that they were not adequately trained or equipped to handle Ebola.
And they are right. This is not something you learn to deal with on the fly.
The second it was apparent that Duncan had Ebola the CDC should have immediately flown to Dallas, quarantined the patient and isolated everyone around him AND properly outfitted the health care workers. Instead, the feckless Frieden and the uber-feckless Obama continued to reassure the country that this was just another day on the links. They should have been aggressive right from the beginning. They should have had the “SWAT team” ready immediately.
This horse is out of the barn. Let’s hope it can be caught. Obama says:
‘I’m confident we can prevent a serious outbreak’
I am not, especially since Obama said it. Obama has already seeded the country with Enterovirus D 68 in his illegal alien wards. One can’t help but wonder where he will be sending those infected with Ebola. democrats continue to balk at a travel ban. I think it was Britt Hume who suggested travel could be restricted via the VISA process. This isn’t Gibson guitar wood. It’s not bagpipes. It’s a BSL-4 pathogen.
Meanwhile, Michelle Obama dances with turnips.
