With his presidential campaign in disarray on several fronts, there's one datapoint that is encouraging.
Even if Trump collapses under the weight of indictments, DeSantis still hasn't got a prayer. Every time he opens his mouth potential voters hate him even more. I always said that DeSantis was the Scott Walker of the 20s, except Walker wasn't evil to his core. Just dumb. DeSantis is evil to the core. Totally evil.
DeSantis only wins when the GOP completely controls a state. So, okay, he's the horrible Governor of the state of Florida--where his policies are driving people OUT of the state. Climate change and 90+ degrees of ocean water don't give a damn about his hate agenda. But this does indicate that Florida will be increasingly "unlivable." Insurance companies are pulling out because insuring Floridians isn't worth the risk. Very few people can self-insure and we are going to see climate migration in the USA--a reverse flight of people from South to North. Who cares about low taxes, when home insurance is either unaffordable or not available. He's FAILING his home state and is too blinded by hate to fix things. So, I'm going to enjoy watching his miserable campaign implode.
DeSatan is the proverbial snake that eventually eats its own tail. In fact, the slow but swelling implosion within the rethuglican party is that tail eating snake. Here's hoping they all destroy themselves and each other.
With water temps reaching 95 degrees surrounding Florida, DeSatan will soon see the greatest test of his ability to deal with a major crisis and I feel he will fail miserably. It's easier to attack concepts such as "wokeness" than it is to deal with death and destruction.
Both are vile human beings and I do think that DeSantis bit off more than he can chew or underestimated the average Trump voter and the authoritarian messaging on a nationwide level. This is the way I see it, if people sit home in the 2024 election cycle or keep looking for alternatives to Joe Biden, either one of these A-holes will be elected, which one is anyone's guess. And if that should happen you get what you deserve. I am keeping my fingers crossed and checking in with the Gen-Z who seem to be leaning more democratic, but who knows, they are not married to either party. As far as I am concerned, it is their futures on the line.
Have a fun a relaxing vacation, you deserve it my friend.
I noticed two things early on about DeSantis that would sink his chances.
First was a reporter that noted how DeSantis would disappear during social gatherings. His behavior described as "aloof".
Second was his attacking Disney and casting doubt that he would not attack other private corporations. Attacking private enterprise is not something the very Republican, Chamber of Commerce would want to happen.
Still seeing that truly weird shaking head video clip after a question was lobbed at him. WEIRD. Maybe in a sudden snippy reactionary moody mood, he did indeed try to emulate Ronnie Reagan in a majorly failed way. This Ron truly does not have the “it” factor, charisma, charm, appeal. DeRonnie has as much appeal as a pair of dirty undies that missed the hamper. Let us hope the majority of the rest of the nation continues rejecting DeSatan’s innately evil and fascist ways. If his parents are still around, are they stoked and proud ??, “Look at what our boy has accomplished !!”, or like “Oh my gosh, what have we done?” Gut sense, probably as proud as peacocks, birds of a feather flocking together. The majority of us need to firmly let him know, alongside The Orange, “Get the flock out of here!!”
Having a catbird seat for the horror show that is DeRacist and lately Hellcat Hannah (the wife). It is encouraging that a all hate campaign is circling the drain. The mere fact that someone thought to emulate the original hater reveals the paucity of intelligence in that camp. Flaming out coming out of the gate bodes well for a nation that has rejected the original in more ways than one...
I will be amazed if Jake Tapper asks DeSatan anything other than softball questions. I hope he does. Ronny can't speak to much beyond his little dictatorship that is slowly sinking into the ocean. Is he going to suddenly change his tune and sound "presidential" on CNN? He will try, but he's not a good actor, and his supercilious attitude will emerge.
Enjoy your well-deserved vacation, Michelangelo. I hope that wherever you’re headed isn’t too hot.
Sakina, you are so right. Jesus commanded us to love one another. The GOP wants to bring back segregation and civil conflict. Let their wealthy spoiled brats fight overseas in the next conflict, bone spurs and all. RFK is a disgrace; he should run as a Republikkkan.
Very well stated commentary Michelangelo, actually I believe DeSantis is a bigger threat to America than trump. DeSantis has an evil hateful conniving brain, while trump' has an evil hateful juvenile/stupid brain, I wish both DEVILS would just disappear.
He really is not the sharpest tool. Thank the Lord! He keeps going to war with Disney and getting his ass handed to him. His arrogance and cloudy thinking is honestly a godsend to people who find his politics repulsive.
