For Obama, Ebola is seen not as a health issue for America but as a political problem.
It's self evident: the appointment of a political "fixer" as Ebola czar.
Ron Fournier (who was an Obama shill when being an Obama shill was cool) makes the point nearly as well as I did:
The choice makes sense if Obama's main concern is a) the incompetence of his team, or; b) midterm politics. My strong hunch is it's "b". The Obama White House is not self-aware. It is nakedly political. The uneven response to Ebola threatens to be a toxic issue for Democrats, and the president is under pressure from his party's desperate candidates to do something.
