I guess the silver lining is that it will signal other Republicans that it's OK to ignore or defy Trump. Is DeSantis less prone to such egregious lying or insulting opponents like Trump? That alone would be an improvement.

It's amazing how his political fortunes have skyrocketed after winning by a hair. Was it his Covid defiance alone that did it? Does he ever pause to wonder if the highest death rate in the nation (even with his underreporting and fudged stats) was worth it?

WTF has happened to America? These people believe negligent homicide on a mass scale is a good thing.

Why is DeSantis worse than Dump? Pls explain.

by Anonymousreply 6June 22, 2022 10:23 PM

DeSantis isn't a moron and actually believes in the crap he pushes. Trump has zero actually beliefs in anything he says or does. DeSantis is also disciplined so he won't say stupid crap to turn off suburban republicans, also probably wouldn't attack other republicans in the house/senate. Basically a smarter Trump, which makes him a lot more dangerous. Just think of the crap Trump was able to pull while being a complete manchild idiot. Fear for the future if a smart Trump-like Republican ever wins.

Trump has the Qanon crazies and toothless hillbilly vote, DeSantis really is getting all the other Republicans lining up behind him. They want rid of Trump and want to win. Trump's a loser. Once he wins the primaries DeSantis will pick up the hillbillies. He's Reagan redux to Biden's Carter.

He's not a fascist however.

by Anonymousreply 26June 22, 2022 11:03 PM

The New Yorker profile paints DeSantis as brilliant, repellent and cold. He lacks warmth and has no time for social niceties, etiquette or empathy. I don't think he is Reagan redux for that reason. Although his relationships are transactional, like Trump's, he apparently doesn't share Trump's desperate need for approval or affection. I think he will win the nomination and unless his personality turns enough people off, he will win the presidency.

by Anonymousreply 27June 22, 2022 11:06 PM

I meant he's Reagan Redux in that it's likely he'll become another hero in Republican eyes. Winning two terms, and producing a "revolution" in economic and social polices.

DeSantis is not worse than Trump. Only a Trump apologist would say that. DeSantis is closer to Mitch McConnell: he seems scary and freakish because you rarely see openly intelligent Republican politicians. He believes in awful policies, but they all do, they’re Republicans. Trump did not have policy goals. He didn’t care about government. He just wanted to destroy everything.

Can anyone see any scenario whatsoever in which Trump will accept defeat gracefully and hand over his MAGA movement to DeSantis?

He’ll create hell. His only real loyalty is to his own ego. Wait until he gives DeSantis the full name-calling, crude-insult treatment. His acolytes will eat it up.

At this stage, Trump’s ego might be the Democrat’s greatest asset.

I’m a Floridian and think Ron Desantis presents the best chance for the GOP to win the White House.

Ron is smart, cold and calculating, despite the reports he does posses some charisma but not the typical politician type that’s slimy and overly nice.

I truly fear that he could win, he is ruthless and digs in for the kill like a pit bull.

Trump is an idiot that coasts by on his perceived wealth, it’s his business man persona that people like because they think he is a smart self made millionaire. But Trump is stupid and easily swayed which makes him less dangerous than Ron who still has some youthful looks to plaster on billboards and sell the old elephants a dream.

Which is worse to be honest? Trump hasn’t declared war on homosexuality like DeSantis has. I’m no fan of the orange one but DeSantis seems truly hell bent on his conservative agenda. Trump used the wean minded right wing conservatives and militia groups to his advantage but DeSantis seems to truly believe their musings. The whole lot of them can catch Covid and suffer with the “fake virus” they claim isn’t real. No hospitals or help for them, let them choke on their own lies as they pass away.

Trump will not slink off quietly.

Two scenarios:

1. Trump loses in a bitter contest, refuses to back DeSantis and his base sits the election out. Remember that many of his supporters never voted previously, or, if they did vote, actually voted for Democrats in the past. They like Trump, not the GOP

2. Trump's advisors somehow convince him not to run again and to hand the crown to DeSantis. But like all retired autocrats, Trump can't stand to see DerSantis get all the attention so undercuts him at every opportunity and his endorsement is lukewarm at best, which also leads Deplorables to sit this one out

It's also possible the DeSantis, who is politically savvy. tacks back to center once he's secured the GOP nomination. Whether he actually governs as a centrist is another story though....

"He's already being groomed to smooth his rough edges and to fake compassion like an Oscar winning actor."

Yeah, that won't work. You can't fake that shit unless you have some degree of facile charm, like George "I wanna have a beer with him" W Bush.

That said, his lack of personality won't hinder his chances one bit. People will see DeSantis as The Terminator. Cold, calculating, brutally efficient and 100% focused on his agenda. MAGA crazies will love that shit and neatly fall in line once his momentum really gets going.

And I feel horrible for Biden, who I truly think is a good man at heart who want's the best for this country. DeSantis will demolish him in the debates. He's whip smart on his feet and can flip any argument against him in his favor. I've been following his trajectory (in horror) for awhile--but seriously, read The New Yorker article to see what I'm talking about here. The man is awful. But sadly, talented.

The only spoiler I can see is if, like someone else mentioned, Trump decides to run as an independent and wreak chaos. Perhaps then we can squeak by. I'm not optimistic though.
