Obama ‘visibly angry’ over Ebola mess; Bobby Jindal says it’s all part of the program

When Barack Obama assembled his cabinet to discuss the Ebola crisis after a second Texas nurse was found to have contracted the disease, The New York Times quoted people briefed on the meeting that the president appeared “visibly angry” over his administration’s poor handling of the mess.

Louisiana’s governor isn’t buying it, however. He said he’s seen it all too often, and it’s standard operating procedure for the president.

According to the Times:

Beneath the calming reassurance that President Obama has repeatedly offered during the Ebola crisis, there is a deepening frustration, even anger, with how the government has handled key elements of the response.

How many times have we seen Obama “visibly angry? After every scandal involving his administration, until they become “phony scandals.” The Times continues:

Those frustrations spilled over when Mr. Obama convened his top aides in the Cabinet room after canceling his schedule on Wednesday. Medical officials were providing information that later turned out to be wrong. Guidance to local health teams was not adequate. It was unclear which Ebola patients belonged in which threat categories.

“Canceling his schedule,” of course, meant calling off his appearances at fundraisers in New Jersey and Connecticut, according to The Weekly Standard.

The Times went on to note:

“It’s not tight,” a visibly angry Mr. Obama said of the response, according to people briefed on the meeting. He told aides they needed to get ahead of events and demanded a more hands-on approach, particularly from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “He was not satisfied with the response,” a senior official said.

After the story broke, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal observed that this was nothing new. It is, in fact, all a part of Obama’s failed “School Of Crisis Management,” as Jindal explained in a series of tweets. He began by providing a link to the Times article:

Then he explained that the president typically goes through a set list of stages in any crisis

Then he listed the stages. Do they sound familiar? They should. We’ve seen it all before.

But you may have noticed that there’s usually a lag time before he pretends to take over the reins in any crisis. He apparently wants to see if the problem will work itself out first. Continuing to stage two:

How many times have we heard, “There’s no one more upset about this than I am”? Now for the final two stages:

Following the crisis meeting, Obama was so angry that he decided he had to take his frustrations out on a poor little dimpled ball.
