The ever-unpopular Ron DeSantis

Looks like maybe Uniparty DC didn’t care for the cut of his jib.

D.C. Uniparty declares DeSantis Man Bad
“We don’t like his personality!” they seethe.

The Uniparty corporate media machine is launching a new series of attacks against Florida’s governor, after recent polls show that he may present the greatest threat to a second Biden term at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. 

During his time in Congress, Governor Ron DeSantis didn’t go out of his way to befriend Washington, D.C. Swamp Creatures, and unsurprisingly, that means he doesn’t have glowing reviews within The Swamp. 

There appears to be a coordinated line of attacks going after the governor’s personality, which serves as an attempted distraction from his overwhelmingly supported record in office.

On Friday, D.C. establishment website Politico ran with the headline: “How to lose friends and alienate people, by Ron DeSantis.”

In the piece, former Swamp Creature rep Dave Trott (R-MI), who maintained a 49% (F) Heritage Action voting record, ranted to the corporate press that DeSantis does not like to schmooze with fellow lawmakers and their corporate lobbyist friends. Trott was infuriated by the fact that DeSantis did not appear interested in spending the time to get to intimately get to know the Washington, D.C. Beltway class.

On Thursday, The New York Times, a far-left blog based in Manhattan, ran a piece with similar themes.

Lots of recent stories have criticized DeSantis as too introverted, unwilling to talk to corporate media reporters, and uninterested in fashion. This Florida Man has the chutzpah to both ignore them and not care about what they think. The audacity!

Well, good, fine by me. All the more reason for Da Guv to stay where’s at, in Tallahassee, where he’s actually been able to do some good. And despite all the ongoing whoopjamboreehoo about an “imminent” announcement that he’s throwing his hat into the 2024 ring circle-jerk, I note once again, with great relief, that DeSantis still has yet to utter Word One about any such.

Keep it up exactly the way you’ve been doing, Ron. Let them fill your campaign war-chest with their money, sure. Let them blibber, babble, and “speculate” all they like. Let them wriggle, weasel, shuck and jive. Let them carry on with all the usual maneuvering and manipulation. But don’t let yourself be seduced by them, I beseech you. For many of us who support you fully and firmly now, that would be a deal-breaker for sure.

As FLA gov, DeSantis has accomplished many good and worthwhile things, taking the Culture War battle to The Enemy in a way that only a governor can. As president, he won’t be allowed to accomplish a gott-damned thing; assuredly, TPTB will see to that. So let them have it then, and straight to hell with them all. Lay down with such as they, and all any putative dissident will ever get up with is the blasted fleas.

If there ever is to be a genuine political counterrevolution, it must be launched from the State Houses, not the White House. In the end, even a man possessed of as gargantuan, as overwhelming a personality as Trump’s still couldn’t get it done, except as a strictly temporary thing. So why would any more modest soul even bother trying? Better to play a winnable game than to wastefully expend time and effort on a futile, preemptively-rigged one.

    If Trump can’t do it, then it can’t be done. But we don’t lose anything by letting Trump try and if anybody can get it done then Trump’s the man. Meanwhile, Trump is just a private citizen.

    Meanwhile DeSantis can get FL cleaned up and believe you me he still has work to do there.

    If only we could get someone like that in Raleigh. That’s the real goal for 2024 for us Carolinians.

    1. If only we could get someone like that in Raleigh.

      Mark Robinson announced yesterday, so you may get your wish.
      The problem will be the republicans freaking out and trying to stop a real conservative that isn’t afraid to speak up from holding the office. Expect a splitter strategy from those asswipes.

  2. An article written by a Government Man fan deserves a bit of inspection:

    “Ron DeSantis stood up to Covid totalitarians like WEF/BlackRock-owned Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, who also recently took to attacking his personality.”

    He failed to mention that Suarez is a Republican, elected by huge margins in his first and second elections, from memory 80+% and 75+%.
    He states Suarez is WEF/Blackrock owned which is not a truthful statement. It’s an opinion, likely wrong. Suarez is thinking, or was, about running against Trump in the republican primary. For that reason he met with a number of big money donation types, JUST LIKE DeSantis. He may be owned, but he’s yet to take a personal payoff from Rupert Murdoch, so it’s an open question.

    One thing is absolutely certain, among big cities, Miami has been run quite a lot better than the typical democrat controlled shithole. There were no George Floyd/antifa riots in Miami.

    Suarez is not my favorite but he may be the best Miami can do. In any event there is a lot more to the story than the barb presented.

    “…after recent polls show that he may present the greatest threat to a second Biden term at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. ”

    he may“; terms you use when you know what you are typing is horseshit. President Trump is clearly the greatest threat to a biden 2nd term. Cherry picking among the rigged polls is horseshit squared.

    “During his time in Congress, Governor Ron DeSantis didn’t go out of his way to befriend Washington, D.C. Swamp Creatures, and unsurprisingly, that means he doesn’t have glowing reviews within The Swamp. ”

    More tripe. Supported by politico and one butthole republican. The truth is, on the important issues like trade (PTT, Fast track for Obama, etc), DeSantis was 100% in lock step with the “D.C. Swamp Creatures”. The only truth here is that DeSantis doesn’t have friends in DC or in Florida. People don’t like him. They see him for what he is.

    “Some of the most pro-liberty lawmakers (think Rand Paul, Thomas Massie, etc) are not exactly beloved by their colleagues…”

    Reading that made me want to puke. DeSantis is no Rand Paul and never will be.
