Americans Die, Obama Lies, GOP Hides

CNN Ebola Segment Screen Shot

The news that another American child has died from the Enterovirus 68 epidemic sweeping our country’s schools and childcare facilities, and that an American health care worker has contracted the Ebola virus IN AMERICA should make every American voter demand that President Obama close our borders to travelers from countries where those diseases are endemic.

It should be a natural alliance for Republicans – who claim to be the Party of people outside the Washington Beltway – to join with frightened airline workers, parents and health care workers to demand border security and immigration policies that protect them.

And it should prompt every Republican candidate for the United States Senate and House of Representatives to demand an end to the Obama administration’s lies about the health threats facing our country due to Obama’s open borders policies.

All of these should be no-brainer campaign issues for Republicans, but so far it hasn’t happened.

Instead, Republicans seem to have gotten suckered into a debate over who was responsible for the creation of the “sequester” budget reduction policy and whether or not the Centers for Disease Control was somehow hobbled in doing its job because of the sequester.

Please get with it Republicans. It’s not the budget, it’s Obama’s policies and appointees who have opened our borders and lied about where these deadly diseases come from and how they are transmitted.

Rep. Dennis Ross (FL-15) said Thursday that President Obama was "completely wrong" when he said it was "unlikely" anyone infected with the Ebola virus would reach the U.S.

Ross, according to The Hill, Washington’s respected journal covering Congress, was accusing the president of “underselling” the threat of Ebola to Americans.

But our reading of Ross’ press release is that he was accusing President Obama and his highly politicized health care appointees of plain old lying.

At the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in September, Obama said, "In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home." Just over a week later noted The Hill, Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man traveled to Dallas, Texas. He ultimately died from Ebola on Wednesday.

"President Obama’s recent comments stating that it's 'highly unlikely' Ebola would reach our shores were completely wrong," Ross said in the press release reported by The Hill. "Instead of embellishing safety measures, the president needs to look at the dangers of this disease with an unimpeded view and act accordingly."

About the same time Ross and his colleagues released their letter, Tom Frieden, the head of the CDC testified that the spread of Ebola to the USA is “inevitable.”  Frieden made the statement in a House Subcommittee hearing, adding that he does not think there will be a “large Ebola outbreak” in the U.S.

Frieden’s testimony plainly begs the question “Was he lying, or was Obama lying?”

Frieden is, after all, the same arrogant bureaucrat that said there was no need to close the borders and that such a closure would hinder efforts to fight the disease in Africa.

Ten days ago Ross was among 27 Members of Congress, including Democrats Alan Grayson and Kyrsten Sinema, who signed a letter calling on Obama to impose heightened restricts on travelers arriving from Ebola hotspots Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.

The letter was for the most part a politely worded Washington exercise in political discourse, but one paragraph did attract our attention:

You [President Obama] have suggested that you will not take such action [closing our borders to Ebola hotspots] until the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends it. We specifically call on you not to “pass the buck” on this crucial issue. The WHO is an organization of unelected bureaucrats and political appointees of foreign countries. It has no duty to protect the lives and well-being of Americans, as you do.  Furthermore, it has utterly failed to stem this epidemic through its own actions. The responsibility for this decision is yours, not theirs.”

It is time Republicans stopped hiding and started campaigning on the issues that Americans really care about and border security and health security and ending Obama’s culture of lies, are at the top of the list in the middle of two deadly epidemics brought about by the President’s open borders policies and his arrogant and corrupted-by-politics bureaucracy.

Republican campaigns?

I keep waiting for Republican candidates to use some or any of the wealth of issues the Obama Administration has handed them, but all they want to do is dun constituents for more money to "campaign" with. They'll get my money when they start kicking some [email protected]@!!!
