An NBC News poll released Thursday reveals an American public unhappy with the Obama Administration’s response to the terrible Ebola outbreak in West Africa, and the potential for the same to occur here. A full 58% of respondents disagree with the White House on banning flights from Ebola-afflicted countries. They want the flights banned. The Administration has so far refused.
A majority of 51% worry about an Ebola outbreak here in America, and by a margin of almost 2-to-1, Americans disagree with the White House decision to send our troops overseas to fight the rapidly spreading outbreak.
A big part of the White House’s problem is a breakdown in the confidence the public has in the government. The incompetence and depraved indifference our federal government has shown towards America’s veterans at the VA is just one example. There was also the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare, the inexcusable behavior of the IRS, and the President’s personal and relentless fumbling of every imaginable overseas crisis.
We were also personally assured by President Obama that the likelihood of an Ebola victim flying to America was unlikely … just two weeks before an Ebola victim flew to America.
