Shocker: New York Times Reports That Obama Is Once Again Conspicuously "Seething" Over the Poor Performance of His Government

He's pulled this move so many times before that people shorthand it as the "Limbaugh Theorem." The idea is that Obama's political tactic for his many, many failures is to run against his own government, as if he were an outsider, and external critic, rather than the man who is in charge of each and every bureaucracy.

And now he's doing that with the CDC's response to ebola, Tom McGuire notes.

Here's the New York Times, carrying, get this, Obama's water:

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

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.

"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.

MacGuire says he can't even remember all the scandals about which Obama has claimed to be "mad as hell" about.

Nice Deb quoted John Hayward, noting out the many, many things Obama has been claimed to be madder than hell about and linked this GOP video:



The Gateway Pundit writes more, and includes a definition of "The Limbaugh Theorem."
