Obama pulls fleeing Dems back in again: ‘These are all folks who vote with me’

Earlier this month, President Obama reminded voters that his policies are on the ballot next month, which caused a bit of panic in the Dem ranks.

Things are looking so grim that Obama even went on Al Sharpton’s sketch comedy show on MSNBC yesterday to preach to the liberal choir Dems fear will be staying home next month:

Describing the “tough map“ that Democrats face in this year’s midterms, Obama told Sharpton, “A lot of the states that are contested this time are states that I didn’t win. And so some of the candidates there — it is difficult for them to have me in the state because the Republicans will use that to try to fan Republican turnout.”

“The bottom line though is, these are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in Congress,” Obama added, citing the minimum wage and fair pay as issues on which they all agree. “This isn’t about my feelings being hurt, these are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me,” the president said.

Some Dems on the ballot next month are not only hiding the fact they have or would vote in support of Obama’s agenda — they don’t even want to admit they voted for Obama.

Obama’s campaign speech in Maryland so awesome people left early

From: Michelle Malkin

**Written by Doug Powers

President Obama is in such demand these days that he did his first — yes first — campaign appearance for a Democrat on the ballot next month. Obama was in Maryland campaigning for the Democrat candidate for governor, Anthony Brown, who either wanted the president to personally lobby on his behalf or was too slow to mount a successful retreat like so many other Dems.

This Reuters headline sums things up:

Maybe Obama was so overwhelmingly awesome that people couldn’t take it and had to remove themselves from the room.

From New York Times First Draft:

Maybe it was the huge traffic jam that the 8,000 people in a Maryland high school gym were anticipating at the end of President Obama’s speech. Or maybe some people had decided that getting a quick picture of Mr. Obama was all they really wanted.

Whatever the reason, a noticeable stream of people — perhaps 200 or more — started filing out just minutes after the president started making his pitch for Anthony Brown, the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland.

Thousands of people at the event in Upper Marlboro heard every word, and as Mr. Obama’s aides fervently noted, there was an overflow room at the event, a testimony to the interest in the president’s appearance.

But it was hard not to notice that the crowd in at least some of the stands resembled that of a blowout baseball game in the sixth inning, when the less-than-die-hards have had enough.

George Stephanopoulos: Ebola Czar Klain is the communications and management expert government needs

From: Michelle Malkin

**Written by Doug Powers

President Obama’s choice of longtime Democrat hack Ronald Klain to be “Ebola Czar” was lauded by those who also believe we’re just a heavily funded political activist away from the cure for cancer. George Stephanopoulos said this morning that Klain is just what “the government” needs.

From Newsbusters:

Speaking to weekend GMA host Dan Harris, Stephanopoulos insisted that “Ron Klain is an expert in communications, he’s an expert in management. That’s what the government needs right now.

By “the government” Stephanopoulos means “the Obama administration.” And wasn’t Obama sold to America as the management and communications expert the government needed?

So far the “communications and management expert” can’t convince anybody to fast track paperwork:

Ron Klain, the newly announced White House Ebola “czar,” was spotted entering the White House at about 5:30 p.m., but did not attend the meeting because he hasn’t officially started, White House Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri said. He is still completing paperwork and hopes to start in the next week, she said.

But Klain has received the paper trainee hat:

Klain — whose official title will be “Ebola response coordinator” — did meet separately Saturday with White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough “to start to get up to speed,” Palmieri said.

Doesn’t Klain bear a striking resemblance to the bumbling “not a scientist” in this Holiday Inn ad from 2001?

WH: New Ebola Czar has no medical experience but he’ll implement the hell out of the virus

From: Michelle Malkin

**Written by Doug Powers

The White House has chosen an Ebola Czar who will be charged with preventing the unthinkable: A pandemic of blame spreading to the left side of the aisle:

President Obama tapped veteran government insider Ron Klain to coordinate his administration’s efforts to contain the Ebola virus Friday.

Klain, a former chief of staff to Vice Presidents Joe Biden and Al Gore, is well-known by Obama and White House aides. He was selected for his management experience and contacts throughout the government, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said.

“He is the right person for the job,” Earnest said, particularly the challenge of “integrating the interagency response.”

Klain is a longtime Democratic hack whose only medical experience has been injecting Jay Carney into the WH briefing room and overdosing America on lies.

No, Klain doesn’t have a medical background, but that’s not what this is about anyway:

Earnest said Obama wasn’t looking for an Ebola expert but “an implementation expert.”

He confirmed Klain’s title: “Ebola response coordinator.”

Klain will report to two officials involved in the anti-Ebola effort: homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco and national security adviser Susan Rice.

Klain will report his Ebola findings to Susan Rice? Great. At what point does the producer of the movie “Outbreak” get thrown in jail?

Klain’s gig might end up going like so many other Obama administration “in over their heads” appointments:

In closing, the wind-up:

“We’ve got an all-hands-on-deck approach across government to keep the American people safe.” —President Obama on #Ebola

— The White House (@WhiteHouse) October 17, 2014

And the pitch:

Ron Klain not starting right away in the Ebola job. Probably next week.

Good news: Obama says Ebola risk remains ‘low for ordinary folks’

From: Michelle Malkin

**Written by Doug Powers

Because there are many who believe the spread of Ebola can be stemmed by increasing the number of government officials making bad decisions, President Obama has been urged by John McCain and others to appoint an “Ebola Czar.” It sounds like that might happen:

“It may be appropriate for me to appoint an additional person,” to be the point person, the president told reporters at the White House after meeting with his Ebola response team for nearly two hours, as new information continued to develop about how health care workers at a Dallas hospital may not have been given proper training and equipment to deal with an Ebola patient there.
[...]
“I understand that people are worried. This is a disease that is new to our shores,” Obama said. But he underscored the limited scope of the outbreak right now, and that Ebola is a “very difficult disease to catch.”

How difficult is it to catch? Well, that depends on how “ordinary” you are:

“The main thing everybody needs to focus on is the risks involved remain relatively low, extremely low, for ordinary folks.”

If you had “nurses” in the “ordinary folks” category, remove them right now.

The Obama administration doesn’t yet have an “Ebola Czar,” but they do have an “Ebola coordinator” who is a lawyer and rumored to be far superior to Ebola’s attorney.

Here’s a parting thought, and pardon the language, but it was getting hot in my HazMat suit:

Notice that the people urging calm over Ebola are the same ones who want us to lose our shit over a .8 degree temp increase in 100 yrs?
