DeSantis is already MY president

This isn’t the part of Kruiser’s Morning Brief I wanted to mention, but there’s something in the second paragraph I can’t let slide by without comment.

Lent is here and none too soon. This year I’m giving up regret and despair. That stuff is too easy to get addicted to these days. Let’s hope and pray that the secular heathens don’t try to cancel Easter in the name of public safety now.

Maybe Stephen didn’t intend it, but the implication seems to be that the Fauxvid panic-pimps didn’t already cancel Easter once. In fact, if I remember right, last year there was even a minister or three arrested for daring to defy Amerika’s One True God (the Almighty State, that is) and hold Easter worship services anyway. Our power-drunk despots coast to coast then went on to try to rigidly control every other holiday in 2020, meeting with varying degrees of submission. So sorry and all that, but any hope that our masters might deign to relent and take the boot off our necks in time for Easter this year is vain, a fool’s fantasy.

Now let’s move on to more heartening stuff.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida. I’ve been singing his praises since last spring, when he was doing all of the right things in response to the Wuhan Chinese Bat Flu while idiot boy Andrew Cuomo was killing as many elderly New Yorkers as he could. The press was excoriating DeSantis and praising Cuomo, and a conservative star was born.

DeSantis’s handling of the bottom feeders in the mainstream media has been so masterful that I recently wrote that it would be nice if he could teach some tricks to other Republicans. The kinds of Republicans who are going to try and screw up the party now that Trump is no longer in D.C.

DeSantis continues to make all the right people angry, which as you know is a favorite criterion of mine for judging our elected officials. DeSantis has been flying in the face of the liberal hypocrisy orthodoxy regarding whether schools should be open or not. Lib politicians are, of course, utterly beholden to the demands of teachers’ unions, who have been lobbying hard to get paid, get vaccinated, and not return to work.

As the GOP looks to 2024, it should look outside the Beltway for its nominee. This is, of course, setting aside the idea of Trump making a comeback, which I would still support. Who knows where we will all be by the time the 2024 presidential campaign kicks off on New Year’s Day 2023? If we had to set the wheels in motion for a candidate now, however, DeSantis would be one of the most obvious choices.

As the governor of a large state, DeSantis has a name recognition advantage that most governors don’t enjoy. Additionally, all of the undeserved negative press he’s gotten in the last year has backfired and made him better known than the Democrats probably wanted him to be. If he remains popular and is a serious contender in ’24 it will make all of his haters’ heads explode. He might get my support just for that.

The Republican cupboard isn’t bare as we head into the next couple of election cycles.

We have to take our comfort where we can get it.

True enough, as far as it goes. But knowing that there is no longer the proverbial snowball’s chance of electing anything but a housebroken GOPer from now on—that having gotten away clean with stealing the last one, the pattern for successful Demonrat election theft going forward is firmly set—makes that comfort mighty cold indeed.

  1. Donald J. Trump is still my President. He’s also still the legitimate elected President.

    De Santis is like Kristi Noem of South Dakota, or our Governor Stitt: he’s made all of the right moves and noises regarding the Chink-pox, guns, and a number of other things… but they’re still politicians who came up through politics, and I don’t trust them.

    Ayup. We’re not gonna vote our way outta this.

    There’s too many people like Kruiser out there still who can’t quite manage to face that reality and who still cling to the fantasy that, “We’ll get ’em in 2024, by God!”

    Ain’t gonna happen.

    And a politician isn’t going to be who we can count on to lead us through to the other side, not even a De Santis, a Noem, or a Stitt.

  2. There’s too many people like Kruiser out there still who can’t quite manage to face that reality and who still cling to the fantasy that, “We’ll get ’em in 2024, by God!”

    True, dat. It reminds me of Jack Nicholson’s great line in Goin’ South: “I understand about dreams. I understand about waking up, too.”

    1. I prefer his line from Batman: “This town needs an enema.” 🙂

      And, yeah: dreams are fine, but a lot of folks forget that it takes hard work, sweat, tears, and sometimes blood to make ’em come true.

      We’re past that point with elections and politics: not all of the hard work, tears, and sweat in the world is ever going to restore legitimacy to the political process after they allowed the Dems to successfully steal the 2020 election. Only the dim and the NPCs will ever trust an election in this country again, no matter what reassurances or guarantees are given.

      And the Repubs and the Conservative mainstream – of which Kruiser is a part – aren’t ever going to be willing to roll up their sleeves and play the game by the Dem’s rules, by cheating harder and better than they do.

      We’re fully into Post America now.

  3. DeSantis is good. Far better than any of his predecessors, or what we COULD have been stuck with. But I am worried that he might be another Haley. I would much prefer another four years of Trump!!!

    1. For those that were close enough, we always knew Haley was worthless. The signs were all there. My father in SC despised the witch. It was always clear.

      DeSantis may be less than perfect, and he certainly isn’t Trump, but I’m not worried he’ll be a Haley. He’s already shown he has no problem telling the progs to stuff it.

      1. Agree that your last point is vital, Barry. Pols who show signs of craving acceptance from the left/media are not to be trusted. They tend to “grow in office” and spend their time “reaching across the aisle” — caving to the left on every issue to try to win praise.
