Seems like they have "dropped it", and agreed before your unnecessary reminder or suggestion. What's your reason for insulting them? Mayhap you should butt out.

Uh,... this is the same CDC that moved buildings and left multiple vials of pathogens behind, right? And the same administration that is parsing thousands of uninspected people from multiple countries out to all corners of the US, with barely a sniff of a health check. That doesn't sound like proper protocol. As great as the professionals at Emory are or could be, that scenario of bringing in the worst of the worst is not a choice that should be made by one man. Certainly not by one with no predeliction for humility, taking responsibility, or managing important affairs and crisis. I would feel less fearful if this did not feel like a political stunt, or at minimum, another decision in a vacuum with cronies and yes people at his side.
Many of us share the same fears and heartbreak for our missionaries. This is a very tough call to make, one that in a scenario easily imagined, decimates our country. What President would unilaterally command, or allow this choice by the CDC, without conference at the highest levels of Congress and with appropriate external expertise? The only protection for the American public at large from a megalomaniac, narcissist making one too many (wrong) decisions on his own are the checks and balances prescribed by Congress. IF there was no cross-branch discussion and agreement had, or required, we better be looking even harder at restricting the powers of the executive branch. Not to mention reigning in this President in particular, and holding him accountable for his continued rogue attitude.
With allies like Obama and Kerry, who needs enemies?
Her number one priority should be to be as informed at least as much as modestly caring and attentive Americans to a huge national security issue. The Iron Dome is hardly secret and quite in the news. But kudos for getting in the obligatory double speak, "I LOVE Israel, but ware is so sad"
Let's be clear ... most in the US Kerry's latest efforts as shameful. It takes a special person to unite the Israeli liberal and conservative factions to a 100% vote ... as was the one rejecting Kerry's presenting of the proposal he cooked up with Qatar and Turkey. Virtually ALL of the moderate middle east countries (Jordan, Saudi Arabia, et al) have been working with Israel to support the deposing of Hamas. Kerry and Obama want Israel to surrender to Islamic terrorists, or at least tie their own hands behind their backs until they are walked all over and slowly picked off. What a disgrace!
Like Obama, she found out in the news, that her supporters were political criminals and violent anarchists. How could we possibly expect her to know who her associates and supports really are, or what they stand for. Thankfully, GA is less forgiving than blue state America when it comes to such blatant hackery. bye-bye lady, your chances now of a Senate win are slim and Nunn. Bet your Dad is not too proud either.

I am not at all saying we don't need to take a strong stand, but blaming AZ (or TX or NM) will not help. Feds are saying $2-4B to "fix this". Even at half that, it sort of outstrips a state budget. How would you "create" the extra money for everything needed (ignoring for the moment the other issues of lost Federal monies and legal fights with the Feds)? States cannot print money and borrowing or fund-raising for this effort would seem implausible. As we saw with Katrina, and Sandy, it takes coordinated local, state and (mostly) Federal $ and effort, for along time. Basically, until we get to an "all is lost unless we go to war" mentality (or sweeping replacement of the current admin) the Feds will rule. Volunteer state Militias may be in order soon. We've sunken to the level of the 3rd world.
Another example of Obama administration being seriously out foxed on global stage. - We didn't see this coming on the border? A massive distraction that totally incapacitates and overwhelms our already meager insufficient border security, and we had no idea it was coming? No one asked what could POSSIBLY come along with that? A health catastrophe, humanitarian crisis, gang/terrorist infestation, and huge uptick in smuggling were not seen as threats? - "no one could have anticipated ISIS", says John Kerry. Really?!?! I used to feel like we had enough level of smarts to think a couple of steps ahead. Like... "what are POSSIBLE consequences of Iraq pullout, General, Chief, Secretary?" And NO ONE said a damn thing about a vacuum in Iraq and it being filled by bad guys? Get the HECK off your yacht. Any business executives who so poorly understood their market and the economic climate as to not even have contingency plans would be SO FIRED, long ago. It's THE LAW for public companies -- executives can go to jail for not planning adequately for disasters. What are we paying $Billions for if these agencies don't have enough common sense and direction for that?
