Obama Administration: You Can’t Get Ebola Sitting Next to Someone on a Bus or Maybe You Can

Normally it isn’t that hard to get the truth out of the government under Hope & Change. You can simply assume that the truth is the diametric opposite of what we are told by authorities (if you like your plan you can keep your plan, the Islamic State is not Islamic, Benghazi was not a terror attack, the border is secure, et cetera, ad nauseam). But this gets tricky with Ebola, because the message is all over the place:

Speaking in a video message to residents of West African countries currently experiencing outbreaks of Ebola, President Barack Obama dispensed advice on how residents can avoid the disease, including: “You cannot get it through casual contact like sitting next to someone on a bus.”

Fine, that means you can get it from sitting next to someone on the bus. But then what to make of this:

At the same time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is advising Americans who travel to the Ebola-stricken nations to “avoid public transportation.”

If the White House is controlling the message out of the CDC, this would translate to “public transportation is safe.”

Since we learned directly from Obama that public transportation is not safe when he said that it is safe, it is best to assume that the CDC has become so overwhelmed by the possibility of an Ebola epidemic that it accidently told the truth. Stay away from west African buses, and under no circumstances allow people who are likely to have been riding on west African buses into the USA.
