Boakai, Brumskine, Urey And Cummings Play Coy

The silence on the part of principals of major political parties is alarming and shameful. Boakai, Brumskine, Urey, and Cummings cannot be playing coy while surrogates and middlemen remain caught in the crosshairs of this political fluke that is CDC.

If your voices cannot be loud and resounding at this time, the people don’t want to hear a damn thing from you when it is time to campaign. You guys have a moral and fiduciary responsibility to be loud, consistently and constructively confrontational, and direct. Politics is not a secret Susu or lay back game; your protest needs to be unequivocal and unapologetic. We are sick of hearing that you are being strategic and diplomatic. If you don’t sense the urgency, if you don’t see the blatant and mindless way in which Weah is messing up, then you have no major place or space in our political discourse.

Boakai has been very silent because he is afraid that Weah will stop signing his retirement checks. Brumskine has been biting and blowing and noncommittal because he appears to be afraid to lose some of the contracts and contacts he allegedly has with this government( directly or indirectly). Cummings appears inconsistently loud or vocal because he feels it is above his pay grade to be confrontational and vocal. As for Urey, it appears like he is just cool with being an opposition by optics and on paper.

If these guys cannot man-up and become as proactive as the Dillions and Costas of this day and age, then they need to step back when it is time to represent during elections.

No time for wishy washy politics.
