Every President and Presidential administration has a moment that defines their time in office. The question is, will they rise to the occasion or will they forever be defined by their lack of action?
The coronavirus is more than just the daily headline. It is a serious risk that if not treated properly, could take the lives of millions.
It would behoove our political leaders to take this disease seriously and do all they can to ensure that they and their administrations are ready for the outbreak. It should surprise no one that the current Presidential administration is not reacting as they should.
What you know who does not realize (or care to know) is that it’s not about him or the upcoming Presidential election. It is about ensuring that this country is prepared for the outbreak and doing everything possible to save lives.
What is even scarier that is Vice President Mike Pence has been tasked with managing the coronavirus crisis. Given his reaction in 2015 to an HIV crisis in his state while he was Governor, I’m not exactly hopeful that he will be able to do the job.
We as a country, need to take the coronavirus seriously. That includes our political leadership. But they are unwilling or unable to do what needs to be done to save lives, then we have no choice but to vote them out of office.
