"Fifteen days to flatten the curve..."

"might have to stay in lockdown another 4 months until July"

@DKHSK,

Maybe you don't recall, but "15 days to slow the spread" was a Trump thing. Here is the archive.

Thank goodness vaccines are rolling out and many people are being responsible.

15 Days was a Fauci thing. Wear A Mask, Wash Your Hands, Socially Distance. Masks not being useful was also a Fauci thing.

BobB,

15 days was a Fauci thing.

Trump, like any good executive, relied on his experts. The problem was, his "expert" has been consistently WRONG about the science.

Fauci and the National health establishment is a joke. Just like that incoherent Biden.

A snail was moving faster than vaccines were rolling out under Trump.

The vaccines are being rolled out not because of Trump, and not because of Biden, but because scientists had been working on mRNA and adenovirus vaccines for other diseases and were able to adapt them extremely quickly.

Then, the entire government—both parties—spent a ton of taxpayer dollars in preorders to fund the manufacturing.

Trump’s administration was a mess for logistics. But so is Newsom’s. It’s not because of their political leanings, but because they were both more concerned with how they looked in the news than with the difficult planning required for effective work. Thankfully, our government funded research programs were built long before and are effective. And there will be enough vaccine supplies in a month or two to make getting them relatively easier even with an unprepared state government.

"A snail was moving faster than vaccines were rolling out under Trump."

Oh for crying out aloud!

Do you have ANY idea what it takes to design, engineer, manufacture and distribute 100's of millions of doses of a new vaccine for a novel virus??

Trump and his team did all of this in UNDER A YEAR!!!

You've spent too much time in quasi-government service and know next to nothing about creating something and it shows with your statement. Truly breathtaking in its ignorance.

As someone who has worked in the tech sector his whole life I can tell you that you have absolutely NO IDEA what you are talking about.

Sincerely,

Dan

Bull. Demonstrably false. See my comment to Kathleen.

You know next to noting about the coordination between the government and private sector wrt to the development of this vaccine.

The vaccine was provided to the States. The STATES were responsible for distribution within their own borders. IT was NOT the Feds responsibility. Not one bit.

You and Kathleen don't understand federalism at all and you never will.

I don't blame Biden either. I blame the States. They knew what was coming and STILL managed to flub it up.

Enough of this nonsense.

Kathleen. Dan is correct. Your maintain you know more than we would believe. When you make that kind of statement you confirm your ignorance. Do you have any practical business experience?

No Kathleen, you really don't if you really believe what you said about Trump.

Demonstrably false and EVERYONE knows this.

Tired of the GD lies said about that man.

John, yes I do have business experience. Dan, I do believe it. Trump started the pandemic with “it’s only one case”, “we’ll look into using bleach”, and letting governors fight over PPE, but made sure he was vaccinated on his way out the door (I’m fine with this, but not his hiding it). It’s okay if you like him; it so happens that I don’t.

It is not a matter of liking Trump. He is a arrogant New Yorker, not readily likeable. It is a matter of you providing anecdotal comments that a have no relevance to the accomplishments. Somehow I doubt any real business experience on your part based on your comments.
