I’m still fighting to forgive Idaho Governor Brad Little
When was the last time Governor Little talked about COVID restrictions? Are there any left? Maybe he thinks that by 10 months of elementary school you will forget what happened last year if you haven’t forgiven yet. A prominent Republican told me a few months ago that the governor took his foot off the gas when he realized that playing prison guards was not popular with many potential voters.
Will Little continue to insist that he did the right thing and followed the science, or will he put out a mea culpa?
I don’t know where you would find details, but some government bureau must have a list of companies that closed and never reopened during Little’s pandemic panic. How many of these stores are still open but haven’t fully recovered from the bruises they suffered in Spring and Summer 2020?
However, I suspect the numbers are high. The big restaurant chains and big stores have metastasized in my neighborhood. Big business was doing very well, as shown by a new book by author Carol Roth. click this link and you can see an excerpt from their work.
Large boxes and large chains can and often are a source of campaign funding. Small businesses, not so much. Will Little continue to insist that he did the right thing and followed the science, or will he put out a mea culpa? I suppose the answer will reflect the survey data as next May approaches.
I know a lot of people will vote for him if the unemployment rate, which has recovered to three percent, stays the same next spring. People have different priorities and I understand that not everyone agrees with my checklist. The temporary loss of freedom was repugnant to me. I will never forget the day I drove to Jerome and then back. A sign on the street said I should stay home. I don’t use rude gestures when driving, but I did consider a one-finger greeting. If Brad Little is the candidate and a Paulette Jordan-style socialist is the alternative, I can leave the line on my ballot blank. Right now he’s fourth on my GOP depth map.
