Not all current leadership is necessarily good

On Tuesday, April 28, there was a letter from a reader of The Marietta Times titled “Difficult times call for great leadership.” I agree. The writer said they felt Gov. DeWine had done a great job, and I agree. But then the writer thought the president also has done a great job. That, I don’t agree with. The writer said they thought the press had over-criticized the president for his handling of the crisis. Well I don’t think so.

And, the letter said the things the press has said have divided the country. Well, I think the president has accomplished that quite well by himself. I have read history and have seen examples of great leadership. I have seen examples during my lifetime, and this is not one of those times.

This president has done little more than self-aggrandize and deny any responsibility for anything that has gone on in this crisis. He wants to blame everyone else for everything and is politicizing everything — blaming his potential opponents in the coming election for not being prepared properly for this crisis.

We should listen to the medical experts and stay as safe as we can.
