Today is the last full day that Eric Greitens will be governor of Missouri. His resignation is scheduled to take place at 5 p.m. Friday.
Reading the comments on KZRG's website makes me wonder if these people have ever actually paid any attention to what Greitens has accomplished during his year and a half in office.
Greitens spent much of his time out of state hobnobbing with wealthy potential contributors to lay the groundwork for a presidential race that will never happen.
He made few friends on either side of the aisle, instead concentrating on criticizing legislators for their corruption at the same time that the was operating a secretive administration and conducting much of the state's business using apps that destroyed messages so no record would be left of how he was managing or mismanaging taxpayer dollars.
Greitens never told us much of why he did anything. He did not do interviews with the media, preferring instead to deliver his messages through Facebook.
Of course, that pleased his supporters who throw themselves into a frenzy believing that the media are the root of all problems.
When it comes down to it, Greitens' entire approach to governing was to take the role of the savior who was going to ride in on a white horse and rid this state of all of the corruption that was holding it back.
Every one else was a problem. Only Greitens stood for what was right and good.
A lot of people bought into his act and are still buying into it, judging by the comments I am reading.
Greitens, following a national playbook, claimed that all allegations against him were part of a "witch hunt." and attacked the character of anyone who stood in his way.
That term "witch hunt" has been parroted in the KZRG comments, as well as attacks against the media and the "liberal Democrats" who ran Greitens out of office.
It would have been hard for "liberal Democrats" to have removed the governor since the Republicans have a veto-proof majority in both houses.
Some of the commenters, recognizing this flaw in logic, immediately referred to the Republicans who have played key roles in opposing Greitens as "RINOs" or Republicans in Name Only.
If that is the case, nearly every Republican officeholder in the state of Missouri is a RINO.
In the opinion of many of those commenters, Greitens never had a chance. The media was out to get him, the Democrats were out to get him, and the Republicans like Attorney General Josh Hawley and others who are not really Republicans were out to get him.
Greitens helped reinforce that thinking with his "poor me, I am resigning for my family and I never did anything wrong" statement.
There are some of the Greitens supporters who acknowledge that he had an affair and it was wrong, but almost immediately add that it would never have made a difference if it had been a Democrat.
It also would never have made a difference if it were just a consensual affair. The Republicans on the House Investigative Committee found the woman's story credible.
Of course, those are Republicans in name only.
I could be wrong. It may all be a witch hunt. Perhaps there is an organization that could prove Greitens was framed. Whatever happened to Seals for Truth?
