Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, March 27, 2020

America will make it to the other side of this crisis, as it has after every other crisis. But the struggle will be a good deal harder, and the human cost a good deal higher, because we elected as president a man who is so damaged and so broken in so many ways.

The qualities we most need in a president during this crisis are calmness, wisdom, and reassurance; a command of the facts and the ability to communicate them well; and the capacity to think about the medium and long term while carefully weighing competing options and conflicting needs. We need a leader who can persuade the public to act in ways that are difficult but necessary, who can focus like a laser beam on a problem for a sustained period of time, and who will listen to"and, when necessary, defer to"experts who know far more than he does. We need a president who can draw the nation together rather than drive it apart, who excels at the intricate work of governing, and who works well with elected officials at every level. We need a chief executive whose judgment is not just sound, but exceptional.

There are some 325 million people in America, and it's hard to think of more than a handful who are more lacking in these qualities than Donald Trump.

There's an elephant in the living room.

Most people and companies can't weather a month off work without tanking financially. We've known this for a long time but now we get to live it out. So now we're playing chicken with a virus because we can't afford to keep ourselves safe. Welcome to one of two things, bankrupt America or debt forgiveness for everyone. And I fear what may happen should the government bail the banks out again, yet the allow the banks to hold their customers liable. I want to say I have faith in our people but this just feels like a tipping point.

Even if we make it through this with the stimulus working and civil unrest doesn't erupt, inflation is about to be stupid.
