He's an awesome example of how a state should be run and people are flocking there while others vacate the Blue shit hole states as soon as they can.

Crap Throwing Clavin
Quote

A key moment came during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, when the Legislature deferred to DeSantis on all things COVID. Using emergency powers, he issued sweeping executive orders to shut down bars and restaurants, close public schools, send state workers home and allocate billions of dollars in COVID-19 relief money from Washington without lawmakers’ approval.

 

Democratic governors, they call that "leadership."  But DeSantis is an autocrat ("Victor Orban.")

People in the local Facebook groups I belong to complain about local Republican politicians all the time. Not DeSantis. He gets glowing words. 

Some recent polls have shown him in a tighter reelection race than people would assume. I am hopeful people are not stupid enough to vote him out of office.

when you limit your polls to the Democratic inner city shitholes like Miami, these results are generated

I'm not sure he is behind in Miami. Makes me wonder where and who they were surveying? Orlando? St Pete?

Best of frenemies: Ron DeSantis stalks Trump with Republican primary tour (msn.com)

 

As Florida’s governor, Ron DeSantis, packs his suitcase for a five-day trip to campaign for Trump-endorsed candidates, he might afford himself a dastardly chuckle.

 

 

The rise of DeSantis has not always gone down well with the twice-impeached former president who, according to one report, now “hates” his former protege.

Highly sus article, it comes from MSN via The Guardian and, of course, it's always anonymous sources creating the drama quotes.

Based on his personality it doesn’t really surprise me.

Are these the same reporters citing anonymous sources that Melania is leaving Trump for the last 2 years?

Florida won't be 'woke dumpster fire': DeSantis announces teacher recruitment plan (msn.com)

 

"We are not going to let this state descend into some type of woke dumpster fire. We're going to be following common sense. We're going to be following facts, and that's really important," he added.

 

 

 

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is proposing three initiatives to get more teachers in schools by offering incentives for veterans and first responders who have a bachelor's degree to become educators.

The goal is to fill areas in need such as science, exceptional students' education, and reading. Those approved will receive a bonus of up to $5,000.

Officially tossing his hat into the ring for the 2024 Presidential race?

 

 

 

 

Seems more likely he'll officially be charging some Broward County election officials with malfeasance.

Florida officials arrest and charge 20 people with illegal voting (msn.com)

 

DeSantis used a press conference in Broward county on Thursday to champion the work of the office of election crimes and security, a first-of-its-kind office created this year and charged with probing voter fraud.

 

Peter Antonacci, the head of that office, said Thursday was a “special day”. “This is the day we begin taking fraud seriously,” he said.

Upcoming J.D. Vance, Ron DeSantis Rally Imposes Bizarre Limits on Press Freedom (msn.com)

 

Is cavorting with arguably corrupt entities all that surprising for GOP goons like Vance and DeSantis? 

 

 

The policies Turning Point Action is seeking to enforce at the Friday appearance near Youngstown, Ohio—

  • Turning Point Action and its contracted vendors reserve the right to have access to footage for archival and promotional purposes, upon request, and to know in what manner the footage will be utilized.
  • No video or audio recording is allowed of the footage or media shown on the screens during the event.

‘Ron DeSantis’s Florida is where free speech goes to die’: NY Mag’s Jonathan Chait (msn.com)

 

And before really laying into DeSantis, he propped up President Biden as the man who "has tried to heal the social cleavages. His affect and rhetoric are designed to soothe rather than inflame. He speaks in old-fashioned terms and invokes Americans’ common humanity," Chait waxed. 

 

The point was, Biden has the best approach for dealing with the "illiberal left." Because of Biden, "It’s no coincidence that, over the past year, many liberals at progressive institutions have begun to push back against the illiberal excesses of recent years," the author argued.

 

On the other hand, DeSantis, and the "Republican Party’s strategy is precisely the opposite." Chait observed, "Where Biden seeks to conciliate, the Republicans revel in stoking cultural conflict." 

 

 

Chait also mentioned DeSantis’ plan to eliminate "tenure protections for university faculty in his state," and his recent boasts about "bullying" Disney, "punishing the company in retaliation for its criticism of his anti-gay legislation." 

 

As such, Chait declared, "DeSantis has no principled objection to blacklisting, censorship, or propagandistic indoctrination. All he wants is for the whip to be in his own hand."

 

The author concluded his piece with the assertion that no matter how radical the left has become, it is nothing compared to the danger posed by the radical right. "The key thing to understand is that the illiberalism of the left is a subcultural phenomenon while the illiberalism of the right has state power within its grasp. There is no failure of liberal norms on the left that the Republican Party cannot make immeasurably more dire."

Well, they said it so it must be true. I guess I will go and change my registration to D in the morning. I've no other choice.
