The current Ebola frenzy reveals interesting information about how Republicans operate.
Blame Obama, even if he supports something Republicans support, or something happens beyond his control, or he is dealing with something caused by someone else, or he does something that has been routine for every president. Ignore any facts that contradict your criticism.
For example, Sen. Mitch McConnell has said that thwarting Obama is their priority, not the welfare of their constituents. Other Republicans like Sen. Rand Paul are stoking hysteria among Americans. He recently made a fearmongering speech about Ebola, saying some things that are outright lies.
All presidents appoint "czars" -- administrators to coordinate important federal policies. But when Obama went into office Republicans were outraged when Obama did what every president had done, appointed czars.
When Ebola came along, they blamed Obama for not appointing an Ebola czar. Once Obama appointed one, they criticize him for not getting a medical man. If they want a medical man in charge, then why don't they just allow the confirmation of a surgeon general, which they have been blocking for months?
Republicans criticize Obama for being slow to act. Currently, only one person in America has died of this virus, and his deaths should be laid at the door of a Texas hospital not following federal guidelines, not Obama.
President Reagan received no criticism when he allowed over 20,000 Americans to die of AIDS before he even began to address the problem.
Republicans see every crisis as an opportunity to make political points, not a problem to solve for the good of America. Is this an adult way to behave?
