    I’m not very optimistic about this guy’s efficacy given what has been published about his qualifications, but I do think that we should wait until he proves incompetent before beating up on him.

    The current administration’s consistent "Professional, Seriously Incompetent management " has a very long way to valiantly CLIMB up, and aspire to," MERELY Incompetent" .
    Our “friends”, the Democrat party, have paraphrased the old Toyota ad; with malice aforethought, : “YOU asked for it, YOU got it, OBAMA” .

    What, you thought this guy was hired to wear a lab coat and look penetratingly at some beakers full of chemicals? That’s so endearingly simplistic! And I guess the Surgeon General is supposed to run from hospital to hospital transplanting organs, right?

    (Say, why don’t we have a Surgeon General? Obama nominated his choice a year ago. Oh, that’s right. His nominee has the silly idea that guns impact health.)

    Given that this guy was involved with the Solyndra disaster one is left seriously wondering is the President is ever capable of staffing anyone who isn’t a political hack. This guy has no medical training but was able to bilk the government out of billions of dollars of loan guarantees that went bad. Asking for them when he KNEW his company was going to fail!!!

    “Wasn’t it McCain who called for an Ebola Czar?”

    Actually, it was pretty much ALL Republicans that did.

    Until Obama actually did it, and now they’re all against it.

    I’m not against IT…I’m against HIM since he has no medical knowledge at all

    Three cases of Ebola in the U.S., one patient acquired the disease in Liberia, and two patients treated him, in the SAME HOSPITAL! The disease has NOT migrated outside that small pool of potential, and even the folks who spent days living with “patient zero” may be released tomorrow because NONE have shown any Ebola symptoms.

    This “crisis” actually DOES need a PR and management guy, not another doctor, well maybe a “psychiatry czar”?

    Election nonsense. The Ebola “czar” is just a coordinator who tries to get stuff done and field stupid questions from the press and Congress. IOW, he’s trying to shield the actual doctors from the crazy that is Ebola hype. You REALLY don’t need a doctor for that, you need someone experienced in management and political BS. That’s what this guy does, and he’ll do a good job of it. Doctors don’t do poli-sci BS and poli-sci majors don’t do medicine. It’ll work out.

    doesn’t barry have enough PR people?

    Political BS? As in spin? Lying? Covering one’s ass? Suddenly this is a good thing?

    I with the CDC luck. But I don’t wish him luck.

    This appointment makes me think that Obama is actually a republican plant, trying to destroy the democratic party from the inside.

    @Balto Bill

    Congress reviews and comments on the President’s political appointments all the time. And appointing someone and appointing someone competent to do the job are two different things. However, I agree strongly with MikeFive’s statement. Let’s wait and see how he does. He may handle things very effectively.
