First it was Politico spreading the talking point that Republicans were exploiting Ebola by pointing out the failure and incompetence of the Obama administration.
Huffington Post joined that chorus of GOP Lawmakers Continue To Stoke Ebola Fears.
Now it’s Van Jones making the argument that Democrats need to weaponize Ebloa for the 2014 campaign — politically of course.
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.”
After host George Stephanopoulos highlighted how “Nate Silver’s team at FiveThirtyEight gives the GOP a 59% of retaking the Senate” Van Jones shamefully urged Democrats to use Ebola as a talking point in 2014:
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.
