Alrighty then, the Democrats may have found an issue to run on for the midterms. Ebola! Now what hasn’t anyone thought of this already?
It appears as though former Obama official Van Jones has taken Rahm Emmanuel’s belief that you never “want a good crisis go to waste” to heart during a Sunday appearance on ABC’s This Week w/ George Stephanopoulos. During a panel discussion on the upcoming midterm elections, Jones suggested that Democrats should point out that the “Ebola thing is the best argument you can make for the kind of government that we believe in.”
Oh yeah, a government that can’t build a functioning website can use Ebola to make us believe in government? The crazy is off the charts with this one.
We can’t let the Republicans get away with some of the stuff they’re doing this week, just trying to bash Obama. Hey, you know, government is always your enemy until you need a friend. This Ebola thing is the best argument you can make for the kind of government that we believe in.
Please, Democrats, take his advice and run with this.
