While noting that 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney was right on a host of issues during his run for the White House, former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown said the country would feel a lot better about the Ebola outbreak if Romney had won.
“Gosh can you imagine if Mitt was the president right now?” Brown said Friday during a Fox News Radio interview with host Brian Kilmeade. “He was right on Russia, he was right on Obamacare, he was right on the economy. And I guarantee you we would not be worrying about Ebola right now and, you know, worrying about our foreign policy screw ups.”
Brown is running for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, and said he backs a travel ban to countries in western Africa that are dealing with the deadly virus.
Interestingly, Twitter user Marc Andreessen took up the question of whether President Obama or Mitt Romney “would do a better job protecting us from a viral epidemic?”
And while the photo accompanying the tweet may have answered the question, Twitter users jumped at the opportunity to offer their take. Surprisingly, the guy in the background with a camera could be the frontrunner:
Be honest — which guy do you really feel would do a better job protecting us from a viral epidemic? pic.twitter.com/lesxAkxs8a

@pmarca one has a tie, the other doesn’t. Silicon Valley attire suggests Romney would do a better job.

@pmarca my vote is for the guy standing on a chair 10 feet away, is that a choice?

@pmarca the old guy the back. He’s far from the danger and documenting everything carefully. 😉
