Spineless. Gutless. Yellow-bellied coward. That’s Greg Abbott for you. He’s so afraid of upsetting his low-information voter-Trumpist base that he lacks the courage to issue orders that will slow the spread of the Corona virus. By catering to the toxic-hyper-individualists in our midst, Abbott trades the collateral damage of Texans suffering Covid-19 for the votes of his cult worshippers. If he isn’t going to issue stay-at-home orders, the least he can do is either issue a mask-wearing mandate or permit local authorities to do so. Texans need to remember that Abbott traded their lives for votes in the next governor’s race. Thoughtful and decent Texans will know that electing someone else will serve Texas better than this corporatist.

George. Avoid name-calling please (Keep it clean rule posted below). We believe you can make your point in a lot of ways without resorting to name calling. Consider this a warning. Thanks, Thomas

Brian Vandale

Kudos Mr. Martinez

Glenn Wilson

Good luck with that, Thomas. We'll probably be reading an article soon about how George's head exploded at the computer as he tried to compose a comment without name-calling or personal insults.

Glenn, so true. Sad but true

Spineless is a bit much for a man in a wheelchair

Brian Vandale

I agree

Wayne Kroll

I'm responding for a friend. California recorded its highest daily Covid-19 count for the third time in just over a week on Monday with 8,000 infections (Texas had 4,300) while also surpassing 6,000 deaths (Texas has 2,424 as of today). Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday that hospitalizations have increased 43 percent over a two-week period, as well as a 37 percent increase of patients admitted to intensive care units during the same time period. Does California need to elect someone else for governor as well?

Brian Vandale

Of course not he's a Democrat

Brian Vandale

George, Gov. Abbott always said that local government can add to his orders. So blame it on McCoy, also he said if the people don't comply with the orders. After I think it was 2 weeks, he'll make it mandatory to wear masks,etc.. If he does that,then you'll be complaining about it also.

Mike Gomez

It’s ridiculous to blame political affiliation because the virus doesn’t discriminate....California was one of the first states to shut down and the last states to re-open but they are taking proactive steps.

Abbott issued the reopening order way too soon and we are seeing the results. He has tried to blame the young people after he gave the bars permission to open. A safe incremental reopening was never considered; we were going to show the world how it is done. It's not like Dr. Anthony Fauci didn't warn us of a fast startup.

If you want to make a democrat worse Republican governors:”Fifteen states reported recording their highest seven-day averages of cases on Monday, according to JHU data. Of them, 10 have no statewide mask requirements -- Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Montana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming.

The third line didn't come out as I intended. Can't change it
