Barack Obama likes to use the phrase “We can’t wait!” when it comes to granting amnesty to illegal aliens, along with many of his other pet causes.
But apparently, the Ebola outbreak can wait.
The Daily Caller reports that Ron Klain, President Obama’s new Solyndra Ebola PR czar, hasn’t even started the job yet.
After a day of golfing, President Barack Obama convened a meeting with the task force [Friday] to apprise him of any developments in the treatment of the two domestic Ebola cases and to discuss emergency preparedness nationwide, according to a White House pool report. Attendees included Vice President Joe Biden, Centers of Disease Control and Prevention director Tom Frieden, several cabinet members and other White House aides. Klain was not there.
Newly-named Ebola Response Coordinator Ron Klain did not attend the WH meeting. He starts his new job next week, says WH.

Perhaps Klain, a Democrat operative going back to the Joe Biden’s smear of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, will spend this week brushing up on Ebola with the same intensity that Obama brings to those Daily Intelligence Briefings that he routinely skips. Or perhaps he will brush up on getting things spectacularly wrong by politically helpful, from his new boss Susan Rice.
