Thank you, Governor De Santis, for your hurricane press conference

He might be less embarrassing. But I think he's more dangerous.
More dangerous to the foolish ideas the democrats are pushing. Defunding the police and opening the Mexican border so illegal aliens and fentanyl candy pour through plus letting violent criminals out of jail or allowing them back on the streets with no bail after attacking people. Let’s not forget 40 year high inflation and a stock market falling like a rock.

I don’t trust the old worn out GOP to be able to stop the Marxist socialist democrats. This nation needs a fighter like Trump but one who is far less obnoxious. That person is Ron DeSantis.

.... even though I have disagreements with the Dems on pretty much every issue.

That's how ugly I think this orange stain is. That's how low I had to go.

And, of course, there are many like me across the political spectrum, including many solid lifelong conservatives.
You hear that dblack …..all that prosperity and unity amongst Americas best citizens drove Mac1958 fucking bonkers…..what does that tell you about Mac1958 ?

Hulk Hogan is based in Clearwater Beach , hopefully he's doing fine done there. Why isn't Biden more involved with this? I thought that the legislation that the President signed, along with his adherence to the Paris Accords, was supposed to prevent this.

What socialism? Businesses and workers pay taxes to the federal government and they expect something in return when needed.

Being a Governor of a state when a major hurricane strikes is a good leadership test. I hope DeSantis does well and I have confidence in him.

I was watching a video tonight that showed a huge team of bucket trucks from all over the country on standby. The second winds die down to 35 mph where they can safely use those buckets, they're moving in to help restore power. That's real leadership.

The usually do not come from another state, hire foreign immigrant head hunters, to round up fellow immigrants in Texas for a political stunt, shipping them to a resort for a Florida political photo Op, using immigrant men, women and children found in Texas as props for their stunt, dumping them at a Massachusetts resort community with no notice to local or state officials to be prepared to provide food, water and housing on a resort island.
I got to say the locals and State of Massachusetts did a great job, quickly arrange facilities at a National Guard training base. I have seen NG bases turned into emergency refugee centers on the spur of the moment, before, providing temporary shelter, food, medical assistance, as well as 3 hots and a cot. Guard bases have contingency plans and have the ability to respond quickly and efficiently. Good job, Massachusetts and the Massachusetts National Guard!:TH_WAY~113:

Florida has a lot of experience with hurricanes but this one likely did more damage than the usual storm as it was not only powerful but BIG. Hurricane Charlie (2004) which followed basically the same path was also a Cat 4 but a small compact storm.

I feel DeSantis faces a real test of his leadership abilities in the near future. A good performance will enhance his chances to run for President in 2024.

That’s why I prefer to vote for someone who was a Governor rather than a Senator for President. A governor has to run a state while a Senator only has to run his mouth.

Reaching at any excuse for a silver lining: I caught some of this morning's hurricane briefing with Florida Governor De Santis. What I saw during that time:
  • He didn't go off on childish tangents about how wonderful and effective he is
  • He didn't pollute his comments with ridiculous hyperbole and insulting grandiosity
  • He didn't restrict his comments to only terms that would animate his political base
  • He thanked a wide variety of states for their assistance without regard to their politics
  • He didn't pat himself on the back for any and every positive thing that has taken place
  • He spoke very well extemporaneously, using adult words and clear sentence structure
  • He focused on informing and not on entertaining or persuading or selling
  • He gave no indication that he was trying to bullshit anyone or downplay the situation
  • He appeared stable and in control given the terrible circumstances his state faces
  • He clearly understood the gravity of the situation and behaved accordingly
  • He gave the impression of an intelligent and serious adult who sees the big picture.
In short, I was left with the impression that, when things really matter, he is capable of rising to the occasion, eschewing standard partisan trolling, and displaying adult leadership qualities. If we find him in a higher position at some point, my confidence has increased that he'll be able to maintain those qualities.

What a relief that was, and such a refreshing change from his party's standard bearer.


Hey Ol' Mac, did he call out for a dead congresswoman by name, like your beloved Demented Basement Dummy?

More dangerous to freedom.

DeSantis is pushing toward fascism. And so are the Dems. It's just a question of who will push us over the edge.
