Obama Says Ebola-Shmola, Thousands Will Die From The Flu!

Obama has had just about enough of these stupid American people, in other words his bosses. Can't they understand they just need to shut up and let the egg-spurts do their jobs? Obama seems not to get, still, that being competent, and not just at doing evil, is actually the best way to quell people's concerns. At this point, even Democrats have had enough of looking at that sour, sanctimonious, puss, and just want it to go away.
On Saturday, President Obama, whose popularity is only a little better than Ebola's at this point, made his weekly lecture to the poor dumb, American people he clearly despises.

He told America—stop being hysterical about this Ebola thing, you idiots. Only three people in the USA have got it! Big friggers! (It's a Harvard Law thing).

To explain just how silly Americans are being about Ebola, in his view, the President decided to offer up this cheery comparison:
"What we're seeing now is not an "outbreak" or an "epidemic" of Ebola in America.  We're a nation of more than 300 million people.  To date, we've seen three cases of Ebola diagnosed here...we have to keep this in perspective. As our public health experts point out, every year thousands of Americans die from the flu."
Except, of course, there's a little problem with that view of things. It's wrong.

According to the CDC's own numbers, flu actually kills only a few hundred people a year in the USA, not thousands. The reason the death numbers for flu are generally inflated into thousands is because the government combines deaths from flu and pneumonia into one category. When broken into separate categories, suddenly the threat from flu is exposed as not quite as lethal as people believe or are regularly told by the government.

In addition, Obama fails to consider that people's deep fear of Ebola is not that it isn't, yet, killing lots of Americans, but that it is absolutely efficient at killing people when it does infect them.

So, there is this to consider:
Mortality rate of Ebola: 50% (as high as 90%)
Mortality rate of flu: far less than 1%

So, let's see, Ebola is at least 50 times more lethal than the flu. Yes, it might be harder to catch, although if you're exposed to an infected person, it's really easy to catch it unless you're bundled up like an astronaut, but Ebola's definitely harder to survive. So, it's a lot scarier than the flu. And that's especially the case when the government has bungled the handling of Ebola in the United State so badly.

Meanwhile, Obama appointed an Ebola Czar, a political operative whose job will be to coordinate something previously left uncoordinated. Unfortunately, the Czar, Ron Klain, has no medical experience (he only plays a surgeon general on television), and his political record is pretty crappy too. Klain is the fellow who, last time he was given the mission of saving America, lost a little battle known as Bush v. Gore, one of the most catastrophic legal and political defeats in the nation's history, as it plagued America and the world with the presidency of George W Bush. Klain was said to have cried when he lost. So did America for years since.

And if that weren't enough to give you great confidence in Klain's abilities, he's also the Obama operative who advised it was OK to give Solyndra over half a billion of taxpayer dollars to wash down the drain.

As Klain said at the time:
"The reality is that if POTUS visited 10 such places over the next 10 months, probably a few will be belly-up by election day 2012—but that to me is the reality of saying that we want to help promote cutting edge, new-economy industries."
Yeah, tossing taxpayer money around, in the midst of devastating recession, to promote bleeding-edge industries can be risky stuff. But hey, it isn't like that risk is going to harm Klain.

Kind of like saying hey, dudes, thousands of people die from the flu.

Can heckuva job Klainey be far behind?

If, and it seems more like when at this point, the Democrats get slaughtered at the polls on November 4, there won't be much doubt about why. Prior to Obama's latest drama with the CDC looking like a bunch of fools over Ebola, the Democrats had been making progress, especially in some of the key Senate races.

But, at this point, Obama is hated even by more and more Democrats. At a campaign stop on Sunday, when Obama took the stage to stump for Maryland Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, a steady stream of disgusted Democrats got up and walked out on Obama.

As with Bush, the nation has had enough of Barack Obama. And the nation will have to put up with this latest electoral mistake for two more years!
