So, the Democrat party is left with two dottery old candidates still in the running, both of whom should have retired long ago and be out tending their gardens or some such hobby.
What does the Democrat Party do to give one of these guys a fighting chance against President Donald Trump? Make a weapon out of the coronavirus.
Bernie Sanders actually compared the virus to the deaths in World War II during the debate on March 15. I realize history is not taught anymore in the public schools, however, Bernie is pretty far out in using that description.
I have to admit that Joe Biden, for once, made a pretty good showing in that debate, at least he seemed to know where he was, what he was doing there, what date it was and with whom he was debating.
For those benighted folks who seem not to know or remember, let me point out that over the last hundred or more years we have had quite a few similar flu epidemics in this country; as recently as 2009 there was the swine flu.
They were more or less taken in stride, certainly no shutdowns of schools, restaurants, sports, theaters, etc. No Trump to beat in an election either. The latest infringement on our lives is our dear governor’s proposal to have an 8 p.m. curfew.
Where will it all end? The excellent economy we have been enjoying under the Trump Administration will bottom, the closure of all those businesses causing a mass of lost jobs. At least that is what the Democrat Party is praying for. It’s their only hope for survival and I hope we will not let them get away with it.
