In a crisis, 72 hours matter, and calls for bipartisanship don’t hide it
By Bryant “Corky” Messner
Jeanne Shaheen’s recent op-ed in the New Hampshire Union Leader, entitled “Help for New Hampshire,” is less a list of what she sees as her “wins” related to coronavirus aid to the Granite State and more of an attempt to hide her demonstrated lack of leadership as that Senate aid package was created.
Instead of leading, Senator Shaheen followed with blind loyalty Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Her actions speak louder than her words.
