Gretchen Whitmer

The Worst Governor in America

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Erratic, arbitrary, deaf to criticism — she has thoroughly botched Michigan’s response to this crisis, and yet, despite her blatant failure, there is talk that Whitmer is on the list of potential running mates for Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Such a choice would almost certainly destroy whatever hope Democrats still have of winning Michigan in November. A petition to recall Whitmer had nearly 150,000 signatures Sunday, and a Facebook group, “Michiganders Against Excessive Quarantine,” signed up a quarter-million members in a matter of days. Insanity is everywhere nowadays, and Michigan residents are cursed to be ruled by the Madwoman of Lansing.

The Coronavirus Is Exposing Little Tyrants All Over The Country

John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist

The response of some mayors and governors to the coronavirus pandemic in recent days has made it clear they think they have unlimited and arbitrary power over their fellow citizens, that they can order them to do or not do just about anything under the guise of protecting public health. We’ve now witnessed local and state governments issue decrees about what people can and cannot buy in stores, etc. That these officials need to be reminded of the Constitution, and in some cases restrained by federal judges, bodes very ill for America. We need leaders who don’t just care about protecting us from the pandemic, but also care about preserving liberty.
