No, Barack Obama is not solely to blame for the Ebola crisis. But it’s worth remembering that when an administration chooses to spend hundreds of billions on a “stimulus” that fails to stimulate, or even mere millions studying why lesbians are obese, then it shouldn’t be surprised when it is ill-prepared to respond to a genuine crisis.
Every dollar wasted, every year whiled away on ridiculous priorities when times are calm represents a lost opportunity to get prepared when the times turn bad. We are weaker financially, militarily, and morally than we have been in a generation. That is due in large part to the president’s misplaced priorities and his squandering of the nation’s wealth.
Mr. Obama’s failures, so obvious now, took years to come to fruition, when most of us chose to look the other way.
