With Americans growing ever angrier with one another over pedantic political points these days, it can be hard to find anyone willing to reach across the aisle and actually get some work done for the American people.
Every single issue we face today seems to be torn into two disparate camps: Team R and Team D. And this is true no matter how universal the issue is, thanks to the work of the mainstream media who will use every trick in the book to divide us into well-understood marketing demographics in order to sell commercial advertising space.
Perhaps that’s why it is so refreshing to hear that Vice President Mike Pence has been secretly working on a bipartisan basis with Governors around the nation in order to stave off an economic collapse in the wake of this coronavirus pandemic.
It’s been one of the more interesting stories of the coronavirus pandemic, in that the highly partisan nature of American politics has seemed to subside for the most part when it comes to governors working with the White House and in particular the vice president.
Governors in both parties, Democrat and Republican, have praised Pence for his handling of the response.
“He’s been really helpful and engaged,” Michigan’s Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who has clashed with Trump and is on former Vice President Joe Biden’s shortlist to be his running mate this year, said of Pence in mid-April, for instance.
President Trump has been the lightning rod that every White House needs in order to collateral political damage, which has allowed Pence to work quietly and efficiently, far from the danger of the mainstream media.
And for this, we thank him.
