Obama ‘Seething’ NYT Leak Shows WH Worried Ebola Will Hurt Them In Midterms (The Washington Free Beacon)

A New York Times piece published Friday indicated that President Obama is visibly worried the Ebola crisis will hurt the Democratic Party in November’s midterm elections.

Recently-named Politico editor Susan Glasser told CBS’s Bob Schieffer that the New York Times story–which included a White House leak about a “seething” Obama–shows that the president is worried that the political narrative is “getting away” from him.

“I think they are very eager right before that midterm election,” Glasser said. “Let’s be honest, the political timing here is affecting what you are seeing in terms of Washington’s response.”
