By now you’ve heard that we have our first reported case of Ebola here in the United States.
It’s a man from Liberia who came to visit his family in Dallas.
But did you know that this is President Obama’s fault?
Well, according to at least one conservative, Laura Ingraham, it is.
Just a few days ago Ingraham also said that the President is willing to put American troops in harm’s way in Africa’s Ebola zone because he wants to atone for his father’s rage over colonialism.
Laura Ingraham has said some pretty controversial stuff.
But this is really just beyond; to say the least.
Also, President Obama’s fault, according to Politico, is the failure of the Secret Service to keep an armed intruder from jumping a fence, running across the White House lawn, entering the front door, overpowering an agent and making it past the entrance to the residence all the way to the East Room.
At least that’s how viewers took the article and especially the last paragraph to the story with read, “Agents tell me it’s a miracle an assassination has not already occurred. Sadly, given Obama’s colossal lack of management judgment, that calamity may be the only catalyst that will reform the Secret Service.”
To just about everyone who read the article it sounded like the writer was implying that the only way to fix the agency which protects the president is for the president to be killed.
Readers were so taken aback that Politico was forced to revise the last paragraph and have added a line which says it was taken out of context.
Since President Obama was elected, for many liberals and African Americans the phrases, “its Obama’s fault”, or “blame Obama” have been running jokes about how conservatives explain anything wrong or bad that happens in the world.
It’s long since time people stop joking about it because it’s dead serious and so are his enemies.
