Three Reasons Why Trump Shouldn’t Run
for President in 2024

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 3/10/2022 11:15:55 AM

Donald Trump was a great president, and Americans of all stripes are beginning to recognize that. Even his opponents will find it hard to argue against that conclusion without waxing stupid about a supposed “January 6th insurrection” that was “worse than 9/11,” or citing the futile “impeachments” where Democrats beclowned themselves in conducting show trials against him. (snip) Yet I am deeply thankful for him, and his service to this country. All of that said, if he loves this country and wants what’s best for it, he should not run for the presidency in 2024.


Bottom line: if we want to win the presidency, Trump its not the strongest candidate

I'm voting for Trump. I don't care what the RINOs and Deep State folks say.

He makes a lot of interesting points--and says something that I've felt for a long time; Trump is exactly what we need, but he is so polarizing that I fear that those who never did vote for him would not vote for him simply because of his persona, again. Also, his age and that of President Pudding Brain hardly make a compelling argument for voting for anyone of that generation. DeSantis certainly is presidential timber and a worthy successor to the MAGA mantle. That having been said, if it's DJT, he's got my vote.

Don’t worry y’all, the Communist Media will demonize DeSantis or any other candidate from the Right…

I completely agree with the writer. President Trump has much to be proud about and he accomplished a great deal that benefited the country, but now he should stand back and let someone else run. Trump's ego steps on his good works.

If they got away with doing what they did to Trump, you can bet your bottom dollar they'll try the same thing with DeSantis.

Appears that Never Trumpers have taken over this thread. Trump won 75 million votes. The Communist Democrats cheated and if you don’t think they will do that to an establishment candidate, you need to watch the rallies and see support for truckers Americans want a leader like Trump!

For me, it's a DJT, DeSantis ticket. First, clean up all the %^*( created and reestablish the 'normalcy' DJT put (pretty much) in place by the end of his term. Set the field, so to speak. Then transition to DeSantis after that.

Well I wish I had the answer. To say Trump’s persona was not always perfect is to state the obvious but the dim propaganda machine of course created most of that perception either by false accounts or by unscrupulous attacks followed by self righteous responses to Trump’s response as unseemly. DeSantis would be put in the same box and The Gullibles would have the same reaction. In short, I think Trump should stand his ground and not concede to the dims’ propaganda. The Gullibles must be made to focus on results, not dim gossip about Trump being a russian spy etc. it’s possible that with bidet fulfilling obumbum’s prophecy about bidet, The Gullibles might spit the dim hook. Trump’s health is a wild card.

Sorry, there are major flaws with all three reasons, but the biggest flaw of all is that 2024 gives the honest people of America a chance to purge the criminals that now run it. DeSantis is going to be tempted to "kiss and make up". Even if Trump appears to offer that, he will be holding a dagger behind his back, and he will use it. More likely he will conduct a purge, and he will have the backing of the people to do it! We deserve this chance to save our country, and the best President in modern history will be the only one with the guts enough to go it! Ps. Romney can go to hell.

First of all, I doubt we will have a Trump/DeSantis ticket in 2024 because of some obscure rule forbidding the pres. & veep candidates coming from the same state. Second, my concern is that Trump would only have 4 years to fix this catastrophe that Xiden and democrats have created. Third, if Trump runs, I will vote for him, but De Santis is a great second choice and will make a great president whenever that time comes.

The author fails to recognize that it was not the voters that chose FJB. Trump won the 2020 election by a landslide. We know it, the left knows it because they did the cheating, and the world knows Trump won. It does not matter who the Republican candidate is in 2024, the media and corporate wokeness will be polarizing against whoever.

At this point in time I don't trust ANYONE who has made their living in government. Not in any elected or appointed position. Elect Trump. Trump needs washington outsiders who also aren't connected to the donor classes as running mates and Cabinet members. In turn, they need to clean house and appoint in place of career bureaucrats, regular folks. All of them need to assume any experts and crreer government people are lying to them until proven otherwise. Eliminate the following: ATF, FBI, CIA (turn foriegn intelligence back to the military), DOE. Let them find jobs at the state level, if they can. Fire the current top brass in the military. Retire anyone above Lt. Colonel who is in any way connected to this insane SJW/CRT crap in the military. Promote the rest with the warning they better work toward military readiness. Rehire all personnel dropped due to the vaccine issues. A revitilized Congress should take steps to penalize any corporations who are dealing with identified foriegn hostiles - China, Russia, Iran, terroris groups. Open the American Energy through drilling/mining and return to energy independance. Demand steel, electronics, and other essential military industries open in the U.S. and seperate from foriegn contracts. Bring retribution against federal and State doj resources used for political harrassment. CLEAN HOUSE!!!

If you accept the proposition that such a thing as objective evil does actually exist in our world, and you can also plainly see the rabid and unrelenting extent to which this objective evil has pursued every possible way to block Trump from being President, then I respectfully submit to you that the recommendation in his article is a cowardly surrender.

Of course the left would go after De Santis if he got the nomination. They’d even go after Mother Theresa. De Santis is up to the task. Nothing seems to bother him because he has facts on his side. The left will always hate Trump. I want us to win, and I honestly believe De Santis stands a better chance at winning. That said, it would be great to see Trump win and let the media have it again four more years.

Excellent article except for this; 1. Ball's article on the election steal describes only the technically legal cheating her cohorts copped to, and therefore obscures the illegal acts, which were legion and MUST BE ADMITTED and FIXED. Don't fall for it, Sullivan. 2. It is true, Trump did not tie himself to Youngkin, but Biden and McCauliff most certainly did. The school exploitation of students and persecution of parents merely illustrated the need for Trumpism. It was TRUMP who made it alright for parents to say, "We are not racists. We are not sexists. Go ...someplace too warm." 3. Trump's real vulnerability is his tie to the vaxes which are every day being exposed and which he will be blamed for just as soon as the media can navigate their ship of fools into a 180 degree turn. Thank Almighty God in Heaven for President Trump. We will never forget what you did for us. As President 45 and now with your media empire.

The author ignores the fact that Donald Trump won re-election in an historic landslide. Biden tabulated millions of false votes. Any discussion must start ar this premise to be considered seriously.

It will all come down to health, imo because age is not that important for a robust man. A simple check of the record will show many, many man (and a few woman) who were leaders in their later years. Heck the Pope, agree with him or not, is 85 with one lung and Churchill was re-elected at 76 and served until 81 ... dying at 90! Many kings, without the aid of modern medicine, ruled tightly well into their 80's. For me, it will come down to how much stealing goes on this November. If we can't stop the Dems now we never will and it makes no difference who runs for POTUS. We're cooked. My dream: A healthy Trump runs with DeSantis ... or Pompeo if Ron begs off until 2028. We'll have pretty good insurance that we could hold the White House until 2036 if we try!

I disagree with this premise although I used to believe that Trump shouldn't run because he didn't deserve to be treated as bad as before. He deserved a rest. However, now I believe that the entire world needs a leader like him. DeSantis is a great governor but he has no experience dealing with the global community. Trump has it in spades and the best bet would be for DeSantis to serve as his VP so that he'll be a shoe-in in 28.

The real problem is the corporate news media. Right now you'll start to see them preparing the population for their upcoming campaign on the conservatives. Another problem is voting corruption. Hopefully the republicans that care will work to keep it honest and not be intimidated by the left.

Your time is important, so Trump is running in 2024, and I am going to vote for him. Trump knew there were crooks in DC, but he, or we, had no idea there was not an honest person in DC, or our government. There is no politician that strikes fear in the left like Trump, which is why I intend to vote for him.

I completely agree with the first three paragraphs, and I voted for Trump both times-- so please stop with the "Never Trumpers." But he would be as polarising as ever because he cannot control what comes out of his mouth. Most recently, Praising Putin and calling him a "genius" as that monster stood poised to begin murdering innocent Ukrainians. No matter what "he really meant," it was a disastrously dumb thing. With Trump, you can be sure that on almost a daily basis he will say something that angers big chunks of the electorate. The next two elections will be the most fateful since 1860. The midterms will be a landslide. 2024 remains to be seen. If Trump throws his support to DeSantis, bolstered by the entire MAGA movement, De Santis will win at a walk. No question about it.

Yawn. Another historically ignorant essay on why we should abandon [insert name of last Republican here] because he is so "controversial" because the media hated him. As for Trump advocating for the vaccine as a bad position. He also advocated for treatments (which is yet another reason the media deemed him controversial.) You can never go wrong with a fighter.

I disagree with some of the writer's observations about Trump's role in the Covid 19 fiascos. Nobody knew anything in 2020 and early 2021 about the virus and what would work to stop it. Nobody. Operation Warp Speed's objective was to develop a vaccine against the virus and perhaps it worked to some extent, because the original alpha version was wiped out within several months. Unfortunately, it was replaced by the mutated Delta and Omicron and other variants, which was brought on by all the wrong policies under the Biden Administration -- extended shutdowns, the wrong treatments, media misinformation, prolonged and ineffective vaccinations, mandates etc., etc. We all know now those policies did not work. Trump was not responsible for what the Democrats did after he left, and had he remained in office, the Covid 19 picture might be very different today. That said, I would support him again, but I would also support Desantis if he is the nominee. Both love this country and both will stand for the people.

Trump was a great POTUS! Better than Reagan! But, we need someone who will promise to clean out the rot of the deep state. Trump didn’t do that and his selection of senior advisors has proven to be very bad in several instances! I will vote for Trump if he is our nominee, but I prefer Desantis this time for 8 years!

Stop blaming Trump for his Covid response. He was following the advice of health experts because he had to not because he wanted to. In hindsight, following the demoslut health insiders' advice was a huge mistake because they lied about everything, but at the time, Trump had no choice. If Trump had chosen another alternative to shutting down the country, he would have been raked over the coals even more than he was by the media and the Washington insiders.

God only knows what will happen between now and the next GOP Nat'l Convention. If Trump decides to run I'll vote for him. If DeSantis run, I'll vote for him. If Trump runs and asks DeSantis to run as VP (and DeSantis accepts) - I'll vote for them. That would be a natural succession path for both - Trump can have his second term while VP DeSantis is groomed for his eventual run. If Trump ends up Speaker of the House after the midterms, I'm good with that too. Just don't want any RINOs, anybody opposing (overtly or covertly, as the eGOP is prone to doing) the 'America First' agenda - and sure as heck don't want any toxic DemoRATS ever again.

I'm a big Trump guy, but yeah... Trump had many positive accomplishments, more than possibly any other President, but many of them were undone in less than a year. Except one: exposing who America's domestic enemies really are and have been, going back decades. They need to be dealt with if this country is to survive.

Democrats know Biden has been a disaster and Kamala is an airhead. Only one thing would drive them to the polls: Donald Trump. They would call DeSantis a Trump clone, but they never be able to achieve the white-hot hatred to defeat him. I voted for Trump. I wish he were in office today. But it is time to let go.

Anyone having questions about DeSantis should check out YouTube. There's something new every day, but the MSM, AND EVEN FOX POST-WALLACE, refuses to feature him on the Sunday morning shows. The contrast with any Democrat is striking and they're scared of him. In military strategy terms, Democrat forces will remain arrayed against Trump and will fight the last war. DeSantis is a leader, young, and he doesn't step on rakes.

It's kind of silly to be calling out "Never Trumpers" since he was president for four years. Unless I misunderstand the meaning of never, it's too late for that. It's also silly to be a serial Republican basher, while at the same time professing undying loyalty to Trump, currently a Republican. There are undoubtedly people who Twice voted for Trump but would prefer another candidate in '24. I'll vote for him again if he's the GOP nominee but I have never fallen into the Ever Trumper crowd. Since Trump became a media staple about the time I became an adult, I have a long memory of his position fluidity, which was never indicative of dedicated ideological conservative thought, like Reagan and Gingrich. On the other hand, I believe that a lot of folks on this site would say Reagan and Gingrich were a RINOs compared to Trump. Being able to hold differing political opinions is a hallmark of American greatness. Uniting around saving our Republic and actively fighting against communist encroachment from within is the only common ground about which I care.

I agree with poster #2. I liked Trump and supported most of his goals. But regardless of what he did there is a huge segment of the population that hate him and would never vote for him. I think many folks who voted for bidet did so just purely out of dislike for Trump. They probably are not happy with brandon's performance, but that wouldn't stop them from doing it again. And we know there are many never-Trumper turncoats in the stupid party that would only pay lip service to supporting him. I truly believe that many of those swamp creatures turned a willing blind eye to all the evidence of fraud in 2020 simply because they wanted him gone.

Nice try William but no cigar, Biden did not win VA by 10%, he did not win it at all. To say that he won VA by 10% is to say he won 81 million votes. There was massive vote fraud in VA as there was tn most states. The entire election was corrupt. Biden true vote count was probably less than 60 million while the Trump vote was North of 76 million. In VA there was massive fraud in the 2012, 2016, and 2020 presidential elections as well as the 2021 governors election., Youngkin probably won by more than 5%.. VA is an election sewer as are many other states. Trump is entitled to enter the primaries for 2024 and if he is the winner, he is the candidate. Get over your magnificent self William, you don't get to chose the candidate. Only Deep State Democrats and Rinos are trying to prevent his return to the presidency. He is the rightful President now and is being denied the position. The fraud of 2020 is treason, which is a crime.

#12: It's not an "obscure rule," it's in the Constitution. That's being said, Trump could just move again. When it sets up the electoral college, the Constitution says that the electors will vote for President and Vice President, "One of which is not from his own state." That's your "obscure" rule.

I don't buy that anyone who says they prefer DeSantis in 2024 is a Never-Trumper. I voted for Trump and will do so again if he is the nominee in 2024. But De Santis is younger, more eloquent, seems just as conservative and would, if elected in 2024, probably sew up the presidency through 2032. Trump couldn't do that if for no other reason than his current advanced age (he would be 88 in 2032). Best case scenario: Trump grasps this rationale and, ignoring his ego, supports DeSantis to the hilt. After losing both houses in 2022, democrats couldn't see a majority until AT LEAST 2032. That should allow time to weed out some of the barnacled old leftist permanent deep state saboteurs and permanently fix a lot of the socialist horse manure dems have installed in our judiciary, regulatory state and our laws.

I'll admit that my thought process was similar to Mr. Sullivan's up until a few weeks ago. Now that more light is being shed on the misdeeds of the deep state, I've changed my mind. Just as the Bible accounts of the Lord using flawed men to accomplish His will (Samson comes to mind), I think Trump is the Lord's battering ram to move our nation back to the rule of law. If he wins in 2024, I think he will be merciless in his retribution against the bad actors in the federal government and he will go scorched earth on them. His age concerns me, but not enough to vote for an establishment puke like Mitt in the primary. DeSantis looks like the future, but I say let Trump do as much as he can to right the ship of state with 4 more years. Plus the daily display of liberal heads exploding will be fun to watch.

I stopped being a Republican back in November of 2020, when the party stabbed President Trump in the back over and over again. Don't get me wrong, I will never vote for a Demon-Rat!!! They are all pure evil. But so are way too many RINO Repbli-Can'ts who are just as evil as the Demon-Rats. So no more voting for a candidate just because he or she has an "R" after their name. So I will vote for Trump or DeSantis, but among the other Republicans that are saying they might run, I just don't care!!! I might vote for one of them, but it won't be with any enthusiasm. No other candidate (even DeSantis) is going to get the Republicans fired up the way Trump will. So if he chooses to run, I will support him with my time, money, and votes (primary and election)!!!!!

William Sullivan (who is he?) opens the door to the #NeverTrumpers, some of whom we recgnize from the 2016 election and the years of Trump’s presidency. Some have been lying low for a while. DeSantis could probably be a good president, but anyone who believes he is not controversial and polarizing hasn’t been paying attention. Bold moves make a leader controversial and polarizing. Take a look at a Mike Pence to see an ostensibly “measured” man who is weak and would be no better than Biden. Maybe worse, if that is possible. We need bold. We should not flinch from controversial and polarizing. That is the Establishment Republican/Uniparty way.

Sullivan's presents a weak argument IMO as to why he doesn't think Trump should run for re-election. It will be up to Trump to decide if he wants to run for another term. If he thinks he can win, he will. If he does run and wins, he will most certainly get my vote. Let's see if he signals his political ambitions by running for a House seat in Florida this year to keep himself visible and to build political capital. If he feels he still has all of his pieces by late 2023, he'll run. Besides, if he were to be re-elected, nothing should stop him from leaving office early for whatever reason. Having a powerhouse vp like DeSantis would come in mighty handy. As America continues to self-destruct and moves steadily closer to embracing the Great Reset, it is hard to say what political, economic, and/or social calamity could confront the American public in 2024 that will influence their votes. One thing I commented in 2016 here at L.Com was that the first republican presidential candidate who successfully handles the msm will be nominated by the republican party and elected President. And it worked and we got Trump. This time, a different schtick will be needed. If America as a once civil society is circling the drain yet faster comes 2024, perhaps fear of this oblivion will determine who becomes President.

Trump will never ever be allowed to be President again. The World Order defeated him in 2020 and will smash him again anytime he runs. Face it, get over it, and move on. Oh, while you're at it, help us fix our corrupt election system from sea to shining sea. All hat and no cattle.

DeSantis as a VP is a BIG mistake. VPs become the sweeper after the parade. Although some of them have risen to POTUS, relatively few do. After that they fade into obscurity. Problem is that I can't think of a single other Pubbie that wouldn't run as a Conservative and fall to pieces in the WH. Nobody but Trump, difficulties aside. Ron DS deserves better, but I don't want to lose the best governor I've ever had. Keep Florida Great!

People commenting here might not "buy it" but saying you want DeSantis to run does not make you a NeverTrump RINO. I proudly voted for DJT in 2016 and 2020 but my preferred choice in 2024 is Gov. DeSantis.

Points to consider: 1. Are there others who share his passion, his vision, his successes a. Is their passion genuine, comprehensive and deep? Or are they merely pandering on behalf of the swamp status quo to the conservative base who voted for Trump in 2016, and the t party since 2010, See Bush, George W. Ryan Paul. b. Are they persons of leadership and accomplishment? c. Have they demonstrated an ability to message up and over a stacked deck media? 2. Do they bring something that Trump lacks? A softer touch or an ability to appeal to Suzi Suburbanite. 3. Are they able to turn the tanker ship around and set it in the right direction, build momentum and continue that momentum? 4. Have they accomplished Anything outside the political world? 5. Do they appreciate Trump and his successes and the team of people, few that they are, who share his committment to draining the swamp. 6. Is there some reason they can't wait for 2028? Pompeo, Desantos

Before you decide which Republican to support, take a could hard look at the Democrats and the totalitarians behind them and see what they are doing. Look at what they threw at Trump, and name one person that would be able to withstand that kind of attack. I would expect that kind of attack against any Republican since it was successful against Trump. If the left does not use those tactics, it's because they figure they can get what they want regardless. At this point in time, I don't see anyone with the resources and intestinal fortitude of Trump. The thing is they were successful in getting rid of him. He will have to change his strategy dealing with the totalitarians or it will be a repeat of 2020. He can't let the United States lose 60 million jobs like last time.

Name one other successful man in the country than President Trump. There may be fewer than who we can count on one hand. He’s already shown he can not only run a successful business, but he also gave us a more stable nation for four years. God’s Mighty Hand is on his shoulder and the President has been working hard every day since January 20, 2021. Articles like this are NOT helpful, especially for those headline readers. Keep posting garbage like this and it’s the last you’ll hear from me. Listen to / watch President Trump’s speech at his rally this coming Saturday in Florence, SC to address important issues, while the RINOs are meeting offshore to take him out. It’s a disgusting meeting to see how they can further punish America and continue to get their piece of the money pie from legislation they pass. We’re onto you!!!

DeSantis has zero reason to be the VP. He would become saddled with any baggage from a Trump term and hurt his own chances. He is strong enough to run as President and should. President Trump was great, he lost an unfair election and we are all far worse off because of it. But between age, polarity and his grudges, he needs to pass the torch,

What the media and politicians have never understood, and still don’t, is that the excitement around Trump is far more about the message than the man. Trump isn’t fully aware of this himself. There is no blind cult following that will excuse anything our Leader does or says. We aren’t Democrats. But because of Trump we will never again accept a cowardly politician to run our country for their own benefit. The light has been turned on. The emperors are all naked.

If Trump seeks the nomination he will win it hands down, but whether or not he could win the general election...who knows? Clinton and Obama both took beatings in their first midterm contests but went on to win second terms in the WH. And let's not assume that the Democrat candidate will be an easy target. Biden will not run again, and the party is too shrewd to go down the drain with Harris or resurrect the PIAPS. WATCH OUT for Roy Cooper, the Dem governor of N.C. He wants to run, is a reliable leftist and is very good at posing as the down home moderate.

I am always nonplussed by this nonsense that Trump shouldn't run because so many people hate him and he is polarizing. But he ran in 2020 and won and won BIG. We all know that. With his so-called polarizing personality he kicked butt. So, let's just bury that argument today. The ONLY ONE that can combat the aggressive, staggeringly strong global deep state that is intent, organized and mobilized to institute the so-called Reset is Donald John Trump. He has never, ever flinched when attacked, impeached, and threatened. I LOVE Ron DeSantis and Mike Pompeo and either one of them will make a great president. And there are others. The conservative Republican bench is deep and young. But, at this point I see no one else with the experience, balls, and enormous strong personality and YES, an enormous ego, thank God, that will be able to stand against the enormous forces working feverishly to undermine and weaken the United States of America, "resetting" it into a pathetic Euro/Socialist type country. With another three years of the Biden regime, the next President essentially will need to be the equivalent of St. Michael the Archangel. The only one that fits that bill, is Donald John Trump.

I don't care. Trump fights. Can't say for sure even with DeSantis. Also, in fairness to DJT, he was robbed and never really got a first term; and did win the second term, no matter what the Deep State says. Give it to Trump, he shows how to fight. DeSantis could be the VP; Trump can just register as New Yorker.

1.) Did not inspire loyalty in his staff or took bad advice and chose poorly. Should have kept his family of democrats out of the west wing. 2.) The 4th year of his administration was a disaster for the country. 3.) Our cities burned and thousands of businesses were destroyed on his watch. Lawlessness was the order of the day. 4.) Rolled by Fauci. His rush for a vaccine was irresponsible. Think ‘clot shot’. Young people who were not at risk from Covid died from a dangerous vaccine and booster. He is still pushing the vaccine. 5.)Just how many loyal Trump supporters who attended his January 6th rally have been jailed for over a year as political prisoners? Where is Trump? Many can’t afford representation. 6.)Republicans were warned that the 2020 election would be stolen. Biden bragged about it in an unscripted moment. As head of the Republican Party Trump did nothing to stop the theft and……here we are. The first three years were phenomenal. The last an unmitigated disaster and we all paid a very high price.

The article misses some basic points. DJT is polarizing because the Left and the MSM have made him so. They will do it to any Republican candidate. That is their basic MO. Just look at John McCain. He was the Democrats' favorite "hands across the aisle" Republican. Once nominated all that changed as it was supposed to. Trump has the best ability to withstand and overcome these ad hominem onslaughts. DeSantis, Pompeo are nice competent men . But they won't last.

The regimen of two initial doses plus a booster is not able to protect against variants and wanes too quickly in strength, Bourla conceded—making additional shots inevitable. “Right now, the protection that you’re getting from the third [shot], it is good enough—actually quite good for hospitalizations and deaths—it’s not that good

The Atlantic appears to be demonstrating that it has its priorities in order… the question being is it the proper order?

A new poll could spell big trouble for New York: Nearly four of every 10 voters here are thinking of fleeing. Their No. 1 reason: high taxes. The survey, released this month by Zogby, found that 38.9% of voters are “considering” or already have “made plans” to head out, up five points from a month earlier.(Snip)Most notably, a stunning 36.7% say their top reason for wanting out is that taxes are “too high,” a gripe more people cited than any other. Even a quarter of “progressives,” 32% of “liberals” and 38% of “moderates” cite high taxes as their strongest motivation to leave. Never mind the druggies and crazies,

Republican Rep. Tom Rice blasted Donald Trump as a 'would-be tyrant' in a searing statement after the former president campaigned for the lawmaker's primary opponent in a rally on Saturday night. Trump is trying to unseat Rice, who he called a 'total fool' for voting with nine other Republican legislators in favor of impeachment after the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. Saturday night's rally took place in Florence, part of Rice's 7th Congressional District. He's held the seat for nearly a decade since 2013.

These decisions will be addressed at an individual and department level, and are being undertaken in a manner that will not impact public safety or the continuity

At the outset of his newly published memoir, One Damn Thing After Another, former Attorney General William Barr recalls his concern about President Trump’s claim that the 2020 election had been “stolen” through voting “fraud.” “There’s always some fraud in an election that large,” Barr explains, and “there may have been more than usual in 2020.” (snip). As he winds down the memoir, Barr charts President Trump’s many successes: tax reform, deregulation, the strongest and most resilient economy in American history, unprecedented progress for many marginalized Americans,(snip) If Trump had just exercised “a modicum of self-restraint, moderating even a little of his pettiness,” he would have won.

Tampa, Fla. — Tom Brady’s retirement lasted 40 days. Brady said Sunday he’s returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for his 23rd season in the NFL. The seven-time Super Bowl champion announced his decision on Twitter and Instagram, saying he has “unfinished business.” “These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” Brady wrote. “That time will come.

I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa.” Brady led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl title following the 2020 season and NFC South championship last season.

What is it about the former congressman, former losing candidate for Senator, and former presidential candidate who dropped out of the race before the first primary that excites Democrats? Sure, he’s handsome, in a rough-hewn sort of way. He speaks fairly well. And he’s got a nice, toothy smile. Remind you of anyone? If you guessed “John F. Kennedy,” you win a cookie. In their never-ending quest to find “the next JFK,” Democrats have tapped O’Rourke as the successor to the playboy Massachusetts senator who wowed Americans in the early 1960s. But that’s a tough act to follow. Where Kennedy was urbane, sophisticated, and witty, O’Rourke is an angry former folk singer
