Nathan Deal’s first emergency in office, starting on Day One, included the glaringly un-populist behaviors of:
1.) Telling Georgians they’re on their own out there in snowed-in conditions.
2.) Using state office/power to shuttle legislators ONLY around in government vehicles (remember, in the emergency we’re under).
3.) Not answering any questions from press.
What an amazing 48 hours of utterly UN-responsive new leadership in Georgia! Is this going to be a great 4-years around here or what?! From Political Insider:
“The weather has to cooperate in order for us to do what we really need to do. So I would just urge everyone to make sure they take care of themselves, and that they do not put themselves in a position of danger,” a sweatshirted Deal told reporters invited into his meeting with disaster advisors.
But the governor, in his second day on the job, refused to respond to any questions.
There’s an emergency in Georgia, that’s fer sure. And it’s not just snow and ice remaining, uncleared, on our roads.
