Republican Hypocrites Busted Yearning For Big Government As Obama Appoints Ebola Czar

After spending years proclaiming that President Obama is a “dictator” because he appointed czars, Republicans changed their tune and demanded an Ebola czar who the president appointed today.

From the early part of Obama’s first term, Republicans claimed that the president was ruling like a dictator by appointing czars. The fact that Obama had only appointed five more czars than George W. Bush was completely lost in the hysteria of imaginary tyranny on the march.

In 2009, Rep. Jerry Moran (R-KS) introduced a resolution calling on Obama to stop appointing czars. At the time Moran said, “The Obama Administration’s excessive ‘czar’ appointments exemplify the ever-expanding federal bureaucracy and big government that Kansans and Americans have grown tired of,” Moran said. “The increasing use of unconfirmed government officials is irresponsible – it is time Congress stops the executive branch from abusing this flawed appointment process. I have introduced this resolution to condemn the increased use of unconfirmed government officials and heads of agencies.”

On October 6, 2014, Rep. Moran co-authored a letter sent to the president that asked for an Ebola czar. “The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is a health crisis of massive proportions. You have announced a government-wide response to address this crisis and help Africans before it becomes a threat to the United States. This requires a global response and the U.S. needs to provide the necessary leadership to control and eliminate this outbreak. We believe it is imperative that you designate a single, senior advisor who will be responsible for coordinating all U.S. agencies and policies involving the international and domestic response to Ebola.”

In 2009, John McCain tweeted:

Fast forward to last week’s CNN State Of The Union where McCain said, “Well, first of all, from spending time here in Arizona, my constituents are not comforted. There has to be more reassurance given to them. I would say that we don’t know exactly who’s in charge. There has to be some kind of czar.”

Today, CNN reported that President Obama will appoint Ron Klain to be his “Ebola czar.”

Czars used to be a sign of Obama’s growing tyranny until Republicans decided that Ebola was coming to us all. The whole making government smaller by slashing the budget for things like infectious disease preparedness doesn’t look so good now, so the same Republican members of Congress who declared Obama to be a dictator are now begging for a “big government” czar to save them.

Republicans have whipped up the Ebola crisis as part of their fear based reelection strategy while the media has eaten up the absurdities like catnip and pushed the Ebola hysteria to new heights. Turn on any local newscast around the country, and you will see endless baseless speculation about how Ebola is coming soon to YOUR backyard to kill you and everyone you love.

The Ebola czar will be helpful in coordinating the federal response, but “small government” Republicans can’t explain away their sudden support for czars.

  1. Republicans are stark raving mad!! First they deliberately fillerbustered the nominee for Surgeon General, then scream for a czar, better known as a Surgeon General!! Then, when he appoints a czar, aka, Surgeon General, they accuse him of being a damn dictator! This doesn’t make any sense! November 4, please hurry up and get here!

  2. Republicans, hypocrites? Say it ain’t so.

    The next lie you will try to sell us is that 100% Pro-Lifers support war and the death penalty.

  3. If the GOP are pro-life, Palin is a member of mensa. They have killed more American’s than Ebola ever will. How in the heck can you be pro-life when you are: pro gun, pro war, pro death penalty, and pro poverty, while at the same time you are anti climate change, anti food stamps, anti unemployment, anti jobs bill, anti EPA, anti FDA, and anti-health insurance, all of which supports life!

  4. Klains’ only practical experience containing anything was attempting to ‘contain’ Biden while serving as his chief of staff. I for one am reassured.

  5. The Ebola Czar will report to Susan Rice and the teabillies are having an epic-sized meltdown on Twitter. I. LOVE. IT.

    Perfect way to kick off my weekend!!!

    My President is always 10 steps ahead of those idiots!!

  6. I think President Obama should have just told the Regressives that we don’t need an Ebola Czar–what we need is a surgeon general. That would’ve given the entire GOTP, along with all of their hate radio hosts, and their hate TV network, the vapors for weeks and weeks to come.

  7. Brilliant observation. The reason the president is 10 steps ahead of hundreds of Republicans is because his IQ is higher than anyone around him. Also, he plays chess. That’s a very important skill, because in order to beat your opponent, you have to be able to predict how your opponent will play 10 steps ahead, in every move.

  8. Wrong! Typical liberal loons spouting off and judging something they know nothing about it was not the Republicans it was the Democrats.The nominee, Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, an internist and political ally of the president’s, has come under criticism from the National Rifle Association, and opposition from the gun-rights group has grown so intense that it has placed Democrats from conservative states, several of whom are up for re-election this year, in a difficult spot.

    Senate aides said Friday that as many as 10 Democrats are believed to be considering a vote against Dr. Murthy, who has voiced support for various gun control measures like an assault weapons ban, mandatory safety training and ammunition sales limits.

    The troubled nomination is the latest setback for a president who has struggled to get his nominees past members of his own party, even after Democrats changed filibuster rules to prevent repeated Republican blockades of Mr. Obama’s choices for cabinet jobs. Dr. Mur…

  9. It is well known there are Dems who have to vote against it becuase of the mens penis society(NRA). But it is far and away the republicans who will vote it down.

    Now, what is your point? You were showing us you can call people names?
