Daily Caller ^ | July 30, 2014

Posted on 07/31/2014 11:06:04 AM PDT by NCjim

President Obama still plans to convene a three-day summit in Washington for leaders of African countries even though the continent is experiencing an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus, a White House spokesman said Wednesday.

“We have no plans to change any elements of the U.S.-Africa summit as we believe all air travel continues to be safe here,” principal deputy press secretary Eric Schultz told reporters aboard Air Force One on Wednesday.

Will Obama Hug and Kiss each one of them or will he do a Video Conference from a different building ?

It would really be a dog-gone shame if the White House Resident and most of the administration contracted Ebola.

Ebola IS the plan for his summit!

Filthy mooseslimes will bring infected slaves to release it upon us.

Does having AIDS make one more susceptible to catching Ebola? If so, Obama better be careful.

Air travel may be safe but the people on the airplanes might not be. Better idea would be for BO to go there for the meeting and take 100 of his closest advisors and associates with him.

Obama should be going there. If he gets caught in a quarantine, oh well.

This is insanity. Any of these Africans from countries with the epidemic should not leave until it's under control.

I read in an African newspaper that the Liberian government plans to send the vice president instead.

Which makes it all better and stuff.

The opinions of some political media hack are largely irrelevant to the recommended regimens of infections disease containment.

I work a few blocks from the White House. This summit is going to do very nasty things to traffic. Just thought I’d throw that in. Grumbling.

But who says Obama will attend the meeting?

He can always use closed circuit communication.

Kind of like, we have to open Pandora’s box to see what’s in it. Liberals don’t want to offend anyone, they would rather have Americans die of Ebola than be insensitive to Africa.

I hope he shakes hands with everybody he meets — from the highest elected officials to the lowest menials.

Believe me, he won’t shake hands with anybody. I wouldn’t be surprised if he actually finds some reason not to attend, or attends at such a distance that there’s no possible risk. The #1 thing on Barry’s agenda is preservation of Barry.

Yes, but at least they do guarantee that their know-nothing press secretary believes the risk to be non-existent.

At the risk of duplication, here’s a short video you really need to watch:

What I want to know is who is bringing in the vials? Y’all know that a vial is going to wind up in New Mexico, causing an outbreak and the Muzzy in Chief will blame republicans for not closing the border when Bush was in office.

Then they will declare marshal law.

In a Clancy novel, the diabolical plan would be that the government has been aware that the Ebola virus has entered the US, keeping it secret, of course. So they open the borders to these children and people, start housing them in government controlled facilities, using the weaker ones for experimental purposes. The others, quarantined, become the new Americans, after the die-off of most of the population.
