Democrats must think Americans have very short memories. In one of the great rewrites of history, Democrats running for state offices, including incumbent governors are pretending that they opposed shutting down schools, businesses, restaurants, churches, and even stay-at-home orders. In reality, it was governors like Andrew Cuomo, Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, and other Democrats who imposed these lockdowns on us for nearly two years while almost all Republican governors opened up their state economies.
The latest example of this flip-flop is the Florida contest between Democrat Charlie Crist and incumbent governor Ron DeSantis. Crist is almost comically accusing DeSantis of the lockdowns When, as you can see below, he was the severest critic of reopening the economy and schools.
