Lead story Wash Times:

Responding to urgent calls from Congress and a fearful public, President Obama has tapped a former White House official to serve as his “Ebola czar.”

Ron Klain, an attorney who worked for Vice Presidents Joe Biden and Al Gore, is president of Case Holdings, which handles business interests for former AOL CEO Steve Case, and general counsel at Revolution LLC, a tech-focused venture capital firm in Washington, according to the White House.

He will be the point-person in charge of responding to the deadly virus in the U.S., and will report directly to Homeland Security Adviser Lisa Monaco and National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

Although Mr. Klain does not come from the public health sector, the White House said he possesses “strong management credentials, extensive federal government experience overseeing complex operations and good working relationships with leading members of Congress, as well as senior Obama administration officials, including the president.”

Mr. Obama had said late Thursday it “may make sense for us to have one person” coordinating the government’s response to the Ebola outbreak, after the Liberian national who brought the virus to America’s shores died and two nurses who treated him tested positive in the following days.

The president said administration officials such as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Thomas Frieden, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell and Ms. Monaco have other responsibilities and may benefit from having one person in charge of the government’s entire response.

“It may make sense for us to have one person in part just so that after this initial surge of activity we can have a more regular process, just to make sure that we’re crossing all the t’s and dotting all the i’s going forward,” the president said.

The appointment won early praise from Democrats and expert observers.

“I’ve known Ron Klain for over twenty years. He is smart, aggressive, and levelheaded — exactly the qualities we need in a czar to steer our response to Ebola,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, New York Democrat. “He is an excellent choice.”

Carl Tobias, a professor of law at the University of Richmond who tracks judicial appointments, said Mr. Klain’s experience in executive offices and on Capitol Hill should buoy him through this challenge.

“I think he really does know his way around Washington better than a whole lot of people,” he said.

    Yet another g-d damned(literally)Zionist Jew scum. Go figure.

    Remember the bird flu czar?

    He was Stewart Simonson, appointed by President Bush in 2004 as assistant secretary of health and human services for public health emergency preparedness. Simonson’s mission — his wonkish title aside — was no less than protecting the country from an avian influenza epidemic.

    This week, Ron Klain was named America’s so-called Ebola czar.

    It’s a title that, for most, probably conjures up images of despots in imperialist Russia.

    But the term isn’t as foreign as it sounds. Klain joins a long list of political appointees to have held the unofficial title.

    We’ve had czars, so to speak, since World War I when Woodrow Wilson appointed a businessman to head the War Industries Board and the media dubbed him the nation’s “industry czar.” It wasn’t long before appointing czars became a White House tradition. (Video via U.S. National Archives)

    Nixon had a drug czar, Clinton a Y2K czar and Bush a bird flu czar.

    In the current White House, there’s even an Asian carp czar whose job it is to coordinate the administration’s response to the invasive species. (Video via YouTube / NorthAmericanFishing)

    To be clear, presidents themselves rarely use the term to describe their political appointees.

    Nowhere in this White House press release will you find the word “czar” affixed to Klain’s name.

    Really, the word is media slang for a White House advisor who oversees major federal policy initiatives.

    The Verge calls the title “a blustery euphemism meant to inspire confidence.”

    The Washington Post describes it as “a catch-all term” used to simplify an otherwise lengthy official title.

    But so-called czars — while increasingly common in modern White Houses — have come under fire from politicians on the left and right who say they’re another example of presidential overreach.

    Some of the same Republicans who once chided Obama for putting in place too many of these policy coordinators, are now among the most vocal advocates for having a single point person on Ebola.

    SEN. JOHN MCCAIN VIA CNN: “There has to be some kind of czar.”

    The problem some see with czars isn’t just political. Paul Light, an expert on government at New York University, says they rarely fix the problem.

    He wrote for The Wall Street Journal back in 2008, “We only create them because departments don’t work or don’t talk to each other … It’s a symbolic gesture of the priority assigned to an issue … When in doubt, create a czar.”

    Let’s just hope they’re better at governing than this guy.

    zero experience with pandemics. fantastic.

    if we are going to have someone head up this ebola thing it might as well be someone ineffective. After all, this ebola outbreak is only a danger to every living person on this planet.
