Thomas Sowell on Obama and Ebola

Although I haven't been as hysterical as some about Ebola, Obama's casual response has been no surprise. He doesn't see himself as the leader of the United States, but of the whole world, and therefore our needs come last. It's the same mentality that makes him reach out to the mosque in Oklahoma where Nolan worshipped, but not to Christians being slaughtered in Moslem countries in huge numbers, and to make pronouncements about immigrants that caused poor people to rush our borders and to be spread around the country.

“Whatever the reason, or combination of reasons, that led to President Obama's foreign policy disasters around the world -- with the crowning disaster of all, a nuclear Iran, looming on the horizon -- it cannot be a simple lack of knowledge or experience. Various former members of the Obama administration are telling the same story, of information and advice from knowledgeable and experienced officials being ignored by this vain and headstrong man. . .

No one knows at this point how big the Ebola danger may turn out to be. But what we do know is that official reassurances about this and other dangers have become worthless.

The erosion of Constitutional government over the years has become, under the Obama administration, a deluge of arbitrary edicts and defiant lawlessness protected by a grossly politicized Department of Justice.”  Thomas Sowell
