It's pretty bad when politicians have no moral core. All they offer is chaos, depending on who's ass needs kissing at any given time.
But it's doubly bad when one politician has to check with another politician to find out where he's supposed to stand on any particular issue. That's Dan Forest's problem, and it's crushing his pretty boy campaign.
Over the past month, Dan Forest has staked out every possible side of the coronavirus catastrophe. One week he's yelling "open everything now," and the next week he's crying "batten down those nursing homes." One day he's saying "we need more and better testing," and the next day he's whining "we have to reopen even if we don't have good data."
If these contradictions sound familiar, they are. They echo the very same positions Donald F. Trump has taken to try to explain away his well-documented failures in responding to the pandemic. Trump has done everything perfectly, a 10 on a 10-point scale, better than Jesus by god. So what if a hundred thousand people die as a result of his incompetence. Blame it on Obama.
America is flailing under the so-called leadership of a man who accepts no responsibility for his actions. The last thing we need is a governor with the same holes in his personality.
Lately I've been wondering just what people see in Dan Forest. Can anyone explain it? I'm baffled.
