A lot of good news came out Friday and the unemployment did not hit the magical 20% all the analysts and media predicted, or privately hoped for.
In fact, 2.5 million jobs in May were added and the unemployment rate dropped to 13.3%. Not quite the harbinger of doom forecast. Well, now the panic on the Left starts.
On other fronts, NY Gov Cuomo continues to give daily updates on the state of pandemic in NY. He also uses the platform to delve into every new national event. The latest being the protests and riots that swept through NYC as the pandemic declined.
Interesting though how he sticks to his analogy. He has worn it out describing a valve and series of gauges as he, like some madman, is authoritatively posted at the controls. Despite repetition, he says he is loosening it as he watches the gauges. It may be boring but what you have to do, he says, while adding “if metrics change that [valve] will change.”
After stretching the analogy to the max, one thing in all his scenarios remains a constant that his hand is always on the valve. So the message seems to be his hand never comes off the valve. One wonders if someone has to pry it out of his cold dead hands?
Media will have to develop a new narrative because things are not fitting into their current one. Once again, as weather improved so did the COVID virus numbers.
But what does not seem to improve is Democrats’greedy hand on the control panel and economy. They are fatally attracted and addicted to power.
Funny how there has not been any protests or marches over the nursing home deaths Cuomo and others caused. Where are they? Where is that national discussion?
But we see how many memorials were organized over the killing of George Floyd. He seemed to vacuum up public attention. Police did not stick COVID into nursing homes.
No true come back would be complete without a look at what happened as these Leftists had their hands all over the control valves in the nation’s economy, or how they mishandled the crisis of the virus.
No, there will be some major event popping up that will prevent any critical insight into that. No time for the damage done, they are off to opine on the next crisis. And in an election year you know there will be one, if they have to create it themselves.
A pity we never really come back from unbridled abuse of power.
