President Obama Hugs Recently Cured Ebola Patient

President Barack Obama today met with Nina Pham, the Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola and has since been cured, in the White House’s Oval Office.

Pham thanked medical practitioners and her support team earlier today upon being released from NIH in Bethesda.

“So with gratitude and respect for everyone’s concern, I ask for my privacy and for my family’s privacy to be respected as I return to Texas and try to get back to a normal life and reunite with my dog, Bentley,” said Pham.

Magazine Cover of the Week: Bloomberg Businessweek

unnamedIt’s Friday, almost the weekend, and therefore, time to gather up your reading list…everything you saw this week but didn’t have time to actually read.

This week, FishbowlDC presents the latest issue of Bloomberg Businessweek and its cover story “Obama Is Too Cool for Crisis Management,” by Josh Green.

Green writes in the article’s opening:

“By the time President Obama gave in and appointed an Ebola czar on Oct. 17, the White House response to this latest national crisis had already run a familiar course: the initial assurance that everything was under control; the subsequent realization that it wasn’t; the delay as administration officials appeared conflicted about what to do; and the growing frustration with a president who seemed a step or two behind each new development. Meanwhile, public anxiety mounted as cable news hysteria filled the vacuum and shaped the perception of the unfolding crisis.”
