So many are stressing the importance of our nation coming together to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic and restart our economy as soon as possible. I believe they represent the vast majority of Americans. That said, why is Speaker Pelosi announcing a “select committee” to look into President Trump’s response to the virus and handling the $2 trillion economic rescue law right now? (Washington Post, April 2, 2020)
Over the last three years, Democrats conducted many useless and costly investigations. And while China was lying and concealing the outbreak of COVID-19, the giddy Democrats had the government entangled in a useless impeachment.
If history is an example, don’t expect this “inquiry” to be any different. They won’t ask why the Chinese concealed the virus for months or why the World Health Organization’s Dr Bruce Aylward said on March 12 (Associated Press) that to fight the virus “ it doesn’t help to restrict movement.” They won’t mention how layers of bureaucratic regulations delayed effective tests for the virus? And no Democrat will denounce the NYC Health Commissioner on Feb. 2 claiming the virus was not as widespread as people thought and that New Yorkers should take the subway and not miss the parade in Chinatown.
Rather, expect “expert witnesses” roundly denouncing President Trump. Democrats are scrambling to resuscitate a faltering Joe Biden. They must somehow compete with Trump’s daily pressers. Joe Biden’s live-streaming from his bunker has been described as word salad. His performance is somewhat reminiscent of Chevy Chase’s comic portrayal of Gerald Ford in a SNL parody of presidential debates way back in 1976. It’s possible both scripts were written by Al Franken. That might explain a lot.
How many times did we hear Democrats say their sole reason for running for President was to defeat Donald Trump? Everything they’ve done since November 2016 has been driven by an obsession bordering on monomania. And in spite of all that has happened, for Pelosi and her crowd, nothing has really changed.
