This is just stupid.


I expect a heck of a lot more maturity of a former president/presidential candidate.

I don’t get it :shrug:
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

I like that.  A few condescending asides at his age wouldn't hurt either.

"Look, the guy is what, nearly 80?  I'm not going to get upset about an old guy like that yelling stuff anymore.  But he and Biden are good examples of why it is time for the next generation."

That kind of thing will infuriate Trump.

Yeah... Old guy yelling at clouds.

What worries me is the fact that so many people vote based on personality...not issues. And so many of the issues that DeSantis stands for are an anathema to many voters. But conversely, Trump hasn't endeared himself to a large swath of the voters either.

I don't see a rosy outlook. But I've been surprised and wrong in my life before.

DeSantis needs to stand hard on TEA Party issues. Wake it back up... The votes will come.

I thought that had to be a gag -- there's no way even Trump would post something like that.  But it's actually legit:

3. Eventually, we all have to work together to remove the Botox-filled puppet in the White House. Keep that in mind, pretty please.

  • Ah, the air is so much fresher here...
DeSantis needs to just press forward, stay to the issues, and use Trump against himself to blunt his attacks.
The Republic is lost.

I hope the first GOP Primary Debate looks a little like this ...

Anyone here really have a good feeling about 2024? I sure don't.

I had a good feeling about 2016 until Trump jumped in. Hillary was widely disliked and it was a major opportunity for conservatives. But we got a shiny glittery he fights clown show instead that is still ongoing.

I don't believe in hope ... it only sets me up for disappointment.

There is plenty of time and plenty of news cycles ahead of us.

There remains opportunity for a GOP Primary Candidate to differntiate himself, in a positive way, from the rest of the pack.

DeSantis is puching above his weight.  I saw one of his 2018 Florida gubenatorial campaign commercials, and it was his wife doing most of the talking.

Pundits were making the point that DeSantis has an Elizabeth Warren issue ...

appeals to a too small, too extreme base, like Elizabeth Warren ...

is not naturally personable in impromptu public social situations, like Elizabeth Warren ...

and gets whisked away from the cameras when confronted by a reporter with a spur-of-the-moment question, like Elizabeth Warren.

DeSantis has time for him and his handlers to right his ship.

I never voted for Trump in 2016. Never was really comfortable with him as the GOP standard bearer. I became EXTREMELY comfortable with him in 2020 and would have walked over broken glass barefoot to vote for him and did. Then, the election was flat out stolen, and no one did a damned thing about it. Now I'm very unsure that it will ever again matter who the GOP nominates.

BIGTIME.

Broke the back of the most effective Conservative movement since Reagan, and destroyed Cruz. And for some reason, the people rejoiced. Chasing after shiny sh*t.

Surely the Democrats and the Republican NEOCONs rejoiced.  *****rollingeyes*****

But now, DeSantis. Hope springs anew.

Yeah, whatever.  So, DeSantis is doing the dems' dirty work against himself?  That makes zero sense.

@Kamaji

DeSantis is doing the Dims dirty work for them.

But you people don't care,as long as Rude Orange Man is the target.

@mountaineer

Career business people use the word "friend" in a different sense than most people. To them it means someone they can convince to see their POV in order to work with them. Doesn't mean they admire them or agree with them,it just means they think they can work with them.

What would YOU prefer,him saying something like "I think I can force this bleep to work with me and  follow my  orders."?

@Weird Tolkienish Figure

I try to convince myself on a daily basis that "a change is gonna come",while convincing myself at the same time that it will be a change I like.

Gets harder to do with  each passing day.

@Bigun

The ABSOLUTE 100 percent truth.

I obviously share your doubts.

I also SERIOUSLY think that this may  be the last actual "people's election" we have unless Trump or some other "Bomb Thrower" takes the WH.

At the same time,I SERIOUSLY think some "Miss Manners Candidate" will end up as the alleged Republican candidate,and it will make no actual difference at all which party  wins because the outcome will be the same.

Nobody would be happier about me being proven  wrong than me.
