The more I hear about DeSantis

the more he seems worse than TFG. Really a lot worse, actually. I mean he actually has "policy" ideas and is a true wingnut conservative. He also is smarter than TFG (not that that is too difficult).

Bottom line: he could do a lot more damage than TFG. I say we root for the orange menace.

16. Don't forget that he also went to Harvard Law and got honors there.

He ain't stupid but he's playing a stupid game with other players who are stupid. I am not sure of what's up with this guy but I sense danger.

3. I don't think his act

will play well on a national stage. Biden will kick his ass in an election.

4. You wouldn't think so

To me, he is grotesquely unlikable. But then, I thought that about the TFG too.

7. Trump had the advantage of running against

Hillary, who the republicans have been demonizing for decades. And all kinds of shenanigans took place during that election. Laundered Russian money, etc. Not to mention the billions of dollars in free publicity a smitten media provided for Trump.

8. '24 will not be bereft of shenanigans, and the

media will be all over a shiny new candidate. DeSantis terrifies me. My primary optimism comes from just how colossally unlikeable he is.

19. And Trump had Charisma, even though it doesn't work on us.

DeSantis has the charisma of a dead rock.

Grates on my nerves.

21. I doubt he'll make it out of the primaries. Remember WonderBoys Scott Walker and Rick Perry?

Goperís were sure both would be President.

5. I've felt that way about him for a long time.

He killed a lot of Floridians with his handling of Covid.

He's the authoritarian leader the GOP will love.

12. Desantis has the personality and charisma of a turnip.

Try to listen to him for about 25 seconds. You will need a shot of Five Hour Energy to stay awake after about half a minute of him speaking. The more people are exposed to Desantis at a national level the less enthused they will be about him.

17. I live in Florida. Trust me. He's worse.

Unlike Trump, DeSantis is a true "conservative" ideologue.

He is a true (and literal) Freedom Caucus TEA Party Republican.

You're not getting DeSantis to sign a First Step Act.

18. He has zero charisma. And his kooky culture war bs won't fly with mainstream voters.

Heís not gonna last long if he tries to run. Remember when Gopíers thought Scott Walker was gonna be the next President?

Just my humble opinion of course.

20. We underestimate him at our peril

We think he has no charisma. By the time Fox News is done polishing the turd, the Magats will adore him like they do/did Trump. He comes across a huge asshole. Just the type the republican base loves. A guy meaner than a junkyard dog, who lives to own the libs.

22. Trump genuinely has charisma. But DeSantis makes Pence look a rock star in comparison to his white

Booted self.

Fox failed with Scott Walker, Rick Perry etc. Sometimes you really canít make a silk purse out of a sowís ear.

Understand your point though. I wonít get too confident.

which will make him acceptable to more voters.

25. Blame The Florida Legislature as well.

They are absolutely supine. They wonít go against him even on issues they donít support.
