The Truth About Nunn And Obama’s Ebola Czar
The White House recently announced that President Obama will appoint Washington lobbyist and the former chief of staff to Vice President Biden, Ron Klain, as the “Ebola Czar.”
The move, a purely political stunt, is just another example of President Obama failing to lead. The appointment of Klain is a continuation of business as usual in Washington. Georgians are ready for a new direction.
“It is absurd that President Obama thinks that a partisan lobbyist with zero medical or health care experience should be the point man on the national response to the Ebola crisis. The fact that Michelle Nunn believes that Washington insider and lobbyist Ron Klain is an appropriate choice speaks to her lack of judgment and her deference, once again, to President Obama’s poor decisions,” said Perdue spokeswoman Megan Whittemore.
On page 58 of Michelle Nunn’s own campaign plan, it clearly illustrates that Klain is a senior advisor to Nunn and he also acted as her “Debate Lead.”
Not only is Klain a political ally of Nunn, but he also was an integral part of the Solyndra scandal.
