It is as if I have seen this kind of left field claim about hand size before. Seems so odd.

They are not even trying to hide it anymore. They want him to go away due to #metoo so hopefully his and all the other D governors wont be called to the mat for the killing of thousands of us citizens because of their 'lack of science' backed procedures. This is a media hit sting waged on behalf of the DNC.

You repeatedly characterizing that its only “D governors” doesn’t make it any more true than the first time you said it. For someone who clearly doesn’t know what gaslighting means, you seem to practice it quite easily.

Stating a fact doesn't make it gaslighting does it?

Can you show me the R governors and mayors that called for long term lock down of schools and businesses in their states and cities? Someone is being intellectual dishonest and I hope it is on purpose.

Not sure what you mean by "long term lockdown", but I'm pretty sure that Larry Hogan had pretty strict measures in Maryland for most of 2020.

Dean and Kim, also critics of a controversial Health Department order that required nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients, began beating the drum for truthful data many months ago. At the time, it was a lonely fight. Cuomo was riding high as a supposed hero of the pandemic. Few were willing to speak against him.

The media elevated Cuomo because he was seen as the Covid Anti Trump. It's not surprising they didn't find him politically useful after the election.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki avoided answering questions on Sunday on whether President Biden still believes New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) represents the "gold standard" when it comes to leadership during the coronavirus pandemic.

On ABC's "This Week," host Jonathan Karl played a tape from last April of Biden saying Cuomo was "sort of the gold standard" as New York battled with skyrocketing cases in the early months of the pandemic, adding that the governor "has done one hell of a job." Cuomo's office's handling of coronavirus outbreaks in the state's nursing homes is now the subject of a federal investigation by the FBI and the U.S attorney in Brooklyn, who is probing unidentified members of Cuomo's administration.

When asked if Biden still believes Cuomo represents the "gold standard," Psaki insisted that Biden would continue to work with Cuomo, as he would with all governors.


I guess Psaki will have to circle back on that question.

You just changed what you are talking about, you realize that don’t you? You have been saying that it’s only D governors who have had problems early in the pandemic with nursing home deaths. That’s the topic here. (but you’re wrong about what you are saying in your goalpost moving in any case - Maryland, Indiana and Ohio just off the top of my head have had some pretty strict restrictions all along, and I’m sure there are more.)

I called that (nursing home deaths only misreported by D governors) out the first time you said it, I told you that nursing home deaths were misreported in my R state as well, and said it wasn’t a party problem. (IMO, It happened not due to any political party affiliation, but because of the chaos and uncertainty in the beginning of the outbreak.) You have continued to say that it’s only D governors at least twice since then. That’s what I consider to be gaslighting.

You have also been implying that somehow Ds are coordinating the sexual harassment scandal in NY to hide the fact that all these D governors were responsible for thousands of deaths in nursing homes. Which is just kinda crazy, actually. I hope you don’t sincerely believe that.

Meanwhile, DeSantis has been lying through his teeth about all the Covid deaths in Fla. Either that or he's been ignoring a flu epidemic of biblical proportions.

Can you post a link to an article where it says which of the “majority of Dem Govs” put Covid positive people in nursing facilities? I haven’t read this and would like to familiarize myself with what my Governor may have done apparently.....

And before I could complete this post we downshift the argument into “severe lockdowns” by governors..... so which are we discussing? Lockdowns or Nursing Homes? If it is the latter, please refer back to the first paragraph.

A bit off-topic, but I can attest through personal experience that influenza is almost nonexistent this season. Both of our analyzer platforms that we use to test for COVID also simultaneously test for flu A and B. I cannot remember a single positive flu test when I’ve been there this whole flu season. Turns out that the measures taken to prevent COVID work better on the flu, which makes total sense since covid is more transmissible than flu. Was talking to a couple COVID doubters who said a lot of these deaths are probably flu “since they’re not even testing for flu anymore”. They were quite surprised to find out that we are indeed testing everyone with symptoms for both flu and COVID. I think it ruined their night, lol.

Neither. It's an ever shifting argument. Can't get a foothold on one? Shift to another. That one fell apart? Time for a new topic. shirt, that one got taken down too? Well what about the deficit?!

Bernie Sanders sort of disqualifies himself with his left-wing, bit misplaced rants or speeches in the past where he praised Castro's Cuba where at least in their daylong waits for bread and food rations, at least everyone in society, rich or poor, are waiting in line. Strange, asinine defense for praising lack of food and consumer goods in an one-party totalitarian communist dictatorship. He also praised late Hugo Chavez's ram-shackled running of Venezuela's once powerful, thriving oil/natural gas based economy to where the country's currency is equivalent to Zimbabwe and Venezuela has been caught up in an ongoing low-level civil war, violent civil unrest since 2014.

He also hesitated or refused to criticize Chavez's successor, Nicholas Maduro, human rights record of intimidating, harassing political opponents, dissidents, silencing or threatening or even shutting down opposition newspapers, Internet blogs, websites, and forcing a mass, humanitarian catastrophe where hundreds of thousands of ordinary Venezuelans fled to nearby Columbia, Brazil, or further into Central America, "Northern Triangle" countries---Belize, Guatemala, and Nicaragua.
You should read the book on the Biden campaign called "Lucky". In the primary the entire DNC establishment was scared to death Bernie was going to win the nomination. It's an astonishing read when you see how far they went to make sure Bernie didn't win. You can label the man as man things but self-disqualifying in the primary race is not one of them.

9 out of the 10 worst states for COVID spread are run by Republicans.

For deaths it's 50-50 in the 10 worst states... but the Democrat states had high death rates in the beginning and the Republican states had higher death rates in the last few months. That leads me to believe that strict lockdowns worked in both preventing the spread of COVID and deaths related to COVID (the "Democrat run states" had high death totals in April and May and then dropped dramatically as the lockdowns took effect). In Republican run states you had spikes in October through now in deaths -- which leads me to believe that loosening restrictions early resulted in more spread and more death.

On the good end of the spectrum 9 of the 10 best states for controlling the spread of COVID have Democratic governors.

And 6 of the 10 best states for COVID deaths have Democratic governors.

Of course it's not as a simple as saying Republican/Democrat.... there was a pretty wide range of policies implemented by each state. I would be curious to see an analysis of what policies were implemented by states with low COVID spread. I'd also like to look into why COVID deaths did not track with COVID spread in states.

Thanks for looking all that up, Jim. My impression was that the states responses had more to do with competence than political party. My state had a decent response, IMO. We had a tiered shut down, we had a mask mandate and a tiered restriction on social gatherings. We have slowly eased up this year, and just opened up vaccines to everyone over 45. Our R governor was highly guided by the public health experts at our state’s largest medical school and didn’t listen to Trump at all. (full disclosure: this medical school is affiliated with the hospital system I just retired from and still go in to help out about once a week).

I don’t agree with this governor‘s policies, for the most part, and didn’t vote for him, but he did a decent job with this pandemic. Trying to paint pandemic response as ruled by political party is going to be problematic.

Oh, I think "self-disqualifying" is a term that needs to remain because if Bernie does ends up winning the DNC primaries last year, there's a very strong chance Trump gets re-elected and we're stuck with an emerging, dangerous would-be autocrat as President for another 4 years and that in of itself, is a far more frightening proposition thank God we won't have to face(hopefully) from Trump ever again. So, I think the DNC establishment was right to be concerned about preventing some fringe left-winger damaging their chances at winning with Biden in 2020.

Context is also important. Covid's initial outbreak was in a few cities (brought there by international travel), and New York was obviously the worst. Covid outcomes were worse at the beginning because the medical knowledge base for successful treatment wasn't there yet. And high-risk people (e.g. nursing homes) fared particularly poorly.

Comparing Covid impact on nursing homes in New York (with concentrated outbreak from March to June (2020)) with Covid impact on nursing homes in Dallas (where the outbreak began in earnest months later) is not purely about administrative policy and state politics. The doctors weren't using the same tools.

Wait, are you trying to say that " for the killing of thousands of us citizens because of their 'lack of science' backed procedures. " meant "long term lock downs".

Who died from shelter in place, lock downs, partial lock downs? Very confused about the point you were making.

Here is every state that issued some sort of lock down or stay at home order. Almost all of the states did.


Here are start and end dates (X-axis is days, but they don't show the scale intervals), but they have the start and stop dates listed to the side.

Republican controlled (gov and legislatures), were shorter than the rest, but aren't that far off of divided states, or most democract controlled states. Only really two major outliers.. California and New Mexico.

This doesn't address mask mandates, or county specific rules in place.
