I am sick of reading the Ebola blame casting here on Texas

I'm not even from there. Some of you act like the CDC is at the mercy of the locals. If that's true, why did they even bother to show up?

I can see how this is evolving around here. And it's only a matter of time before Congress figures out how to proceed...so far they've been pretty quiet.

It must be framed for maximum advantage for the party. It must be used to demonize the opponent and sway elections. It will escalate into a blame game rather than a constructive dialogue of how to shore things up and implement effective measures going forward.

Sorry, but this whole thing makes me sick. The enemy is not the other party, it is Ebola, and unless we figure that out and unite to defeat it, it has the very real potential to destroy us.

I'll continue to post on the outbreak but I am officially done with the political finger pointing aspect. It serves no purpose and is dangerously counterproductive and a time when we need our local and federal agencies partnering together to deal with this.
