Governor’s response ironic
How ironic is it that our Democratic governor, Kate Brown, is so concerned about the spread of coronavirus that she has appointed a task force to study the problem?
This while at the same time an outspoken supporter and advocate for open borders and sanctuary state policies, both of which only increase our chances for exposure to this ever-growing disease. Surely she needs no task force to tell her reversing these policies should be a start for protecting Oregonians.
George and Sue Duran
After the humiliation from Nixon’s criminal administration, Republicans vowed to never again compromise or admit wrongdoing. This has given them the audacity to falsify facts and regurgitate phrases like “no collusion” and “acquitted” to continually justify the lying virus that’s infected a once-honorable political party.
History shows President Ronald Reagan colluding with a foreign government and trading guns for hostages was of no concern to this newly adopted value system. His trickle-down recession revealed conservative positions on the economy were no longer a priority, but no problem.
Unsuccessfully hounding President Bill Clinton for years, the leader of the (ahem) Moral Majority could only fixate on his personal affair while, of course, cheating on his own wife, but no problem. President George W. Bush displayed the party’s colors by deliberately manipulating the country into another war but, again, nothing to see there from these moral pioneers.
Having once more severely damaged the economy their only priority was to discredit President Barack Obama because, unlike their current choice, he was intelligent and had no personal scandals. Also, the Obamas and the Clintons both raised decent children insulated from politics and money-grubbing because imperial nepotism is frowned on in a democracy.
