I don’t know whether it’s bad luck, over-confidence or, perhaps, we just don’t know enough about Ebola yet, but it sure looks like President Obama and the CDC need to re-evaluate their talking point to the American people about the dangers of Ebola spreading in the United States.
It was just a few weeks ago that the president and his team essentially told us that “We got this.” The chances of an Ebola outbreak were nil, they said. We’re the best health care system in the world. It just can’t spread.
We don’t need to cut off air flights from Africa. We don’t need to do anything special with travelers from Ebola-ridden countries.
Well, now we have one person dead in Dallas (and a bunch of stupid mistakes involving the hospital and the CDC in its wake), and two nurses infected with Ebola.
It doesn’t sound like “We got this.”
I don’t want to be fed a line of over-confidence when it comes to Ebola. I want the facts. Let’s try that for a change, Mr. President.
