Michael Smerconish Question of the Week

A very good show today. Michael had medical experts from Harvard, Yale, and Stanford debating the pros and cons of an all out national quarantine.

I’m done watching both MSNBC and Fox in that I don’t perceive either as viable sources of objective information. This isn’t a time for cheer leading, but rather a time for measured scientific data to make the right decisions for our country.

I’m not an expert in this field. I clearly value the opinions of the experts coupled with nuanced common sense.

We in Oklahoma have no clue whatsover of the data in our state because as of Wednesday only 838 tests had been administered in the entire state. There is not enough data to make an informed decision. We are flying blind without instruments.

I would guess the same states which completely deny climate change to any degree are also denying the seriousness of this situation.

Governor Kevin Stitt actually made what I thought were some intelligent comments earlier in the week which pleasantly surprised me. Some more stringent measures were added this week in Oklahoma as somehow the state was able to peel itself away the Joe Exotic saga on Netflix.


The question this week was if the U.S. should implement a nation wide quarantine. Keep in mind, the audience on this show isn’t a left wing watering hole. It’s more for moderates and independents like myself. Like me, Michael used to be a member of the Republican Party.

The results of the poll were 84% voted yes for a more cohesive national quarantine while 16% voted no.

Tomorrow… I’m going discuss former Fed Chief Ben Beranke’s comments this week on how this situation more accurately is a national disaster rather than an economic depression. I think this is key in making decisions right now.

Hope you bought some Boeing at $90 and some Continental Resources at $7 longer hold position.

Be safe and be sound in your decision making.

  1. Yes! Smerconish and the rest of the people who didn’t vote for Clinton are really responsible for all this!!!!!! My voting opinion is, you vote for the lesser of two evils! Your vote for the candidate that is in neither of the major parties is a great possibility of causing the most evil candidate to win! If you didn’t vote at all, then the results will be the same!! All of sudden, Smerconish is all upset about the vaccinations! Smerconish, look in mirror!! You are one of many, that are responsible!
