Dr. Fauci Struggles To Be Heard Above The Chaos

Dr. Anthony Fauci has been front and center for every major health issue we have faced since the Reagan administration. If he wanted fame and fortune, he would have left government service after being part of a team that cured Polyarteritis Nodosa, or help lay the groundwork for HIV treatment and potential vaccines. He could have been a TV doc working a few hours a week, or pulling down a multi-million-dollar salary at any drug company.

Dr, Fauci is one of the most cited infectious disease specialists in the world. His accomplishments, many unheralded, have kept our country safe over the years. If he wanted rock star attention, all he needs do is retire and he will be the most televised person in the world.

He is staying and trying to continue his life of public health service even though we have a leader who has had his underlings try to undercut his credibility. The same leader who has failed us, and continues to fail us, in this crisis.

I was indifferent about the president until this crisis. I did not vote for him because he was a draft dodger and he attacked genuine war heroes; I did not vote for Clinton either. I abstained. My thinking at the time, being more libertarian, was that by not voting, I was taking a vote away from Clinton. In this pandemic, as I see the suffering, the fear, and all the other results of complete incompetence, it is a decision that now haunts me.

Concerns about an infectious pandemic of this level have been around since Bill Clinton, W. Bush even tried to sound the alarm and laid groundwork that was built upon during Obama. But, Trump seems to have had a goal of wiping out anything that was done prior to his swearing in.

Draining the swamp is akin to taking a broad-spectrum antibiotic. Yep, you will get rid of the bad, but you take out a lot of the good. Often times, that isn’t a big deal, until that one time you need the good.

There were many mechanisms in place, not limited to a scientist stationed in China, and an autonomous pandemic response team, that went by the wayside in this particular draining.

If this pandemic did not occur, I would probably have remained indifferent to the President, but when the leader of our country spends more time worried about how the virus, the response, or anything else is impacting him, and makes nary a comment about the afflicted, dead and dying… to me, that says much about a lack of even the most basic level of human concern and compassion.

People are trying to make Dr. Fauci out to be a political partisan, when he is simply doing the job he has done so very well since he entered public service.
