In explaining the role he played in implementing the Affordable Care Act, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown more closely resembles a central casting actor offering cliched political doublespeak than someone capable of holding the highest elected office in the state ("Anthony Brown on health care: You be the judge," June 4).
The lieutenant governor took pains to strike a balance between claiming administrative ownership of a landmark legislative initiative and avoiding accountability for the paucity of returns on the state's investment of $118 million in taxpayer largesse. Anyone who pays even cursory attention to his explanation should have grave doubts about Mr. Brown's credentials to lead.
