pointing to his reelection

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Tuesday brushed off former President Trump’s latest attacks with a simple message: Check the scoreboard. Asked during a news conference about Trump’s criticism over the weekend of his approach to the COVID-19 pandemic, DeSantis responded with a reminder that he won reelection last year by the largest margin of any Republican Florida governor in the state’s modern history. “When you’re an elected executive, you have to make all kinds of decisions. You got to steer that ship. And the good thing is, is that the people are able to render a judgment on that — whether they reelect you or not,” DeSantis said.

I am not concerned about their going at each other. That is what candidates should do. They are both strong. They can take it and we’ll be the better for it.

I hope President Trump and Governor DeSantis will stop any 'attacks' on each other... do not fall in line with the Left's attempts to put you at war with each other... just stop commenting! We the People love President Trump and what he has done/ can do for America. We will always support him! We also love Governor DeSantis and what he has done/ can do for Florida... and will support him in that and, of course in future years. But for now, it is Trump.

I'd hate to see them fight and destroy the chance to get a Republican President. The facts are that we cannot survive another Democrat President. I believe one President once said that the United State was too strong to be destroyed by one President. We have had 3 bad democrat Presidents in a row and that destruction is going full blast. Illegal invasions, crazy trillion dollar spending bills, paying for wars in Europe, attack on every citizen in this country with this crazed environment electric vehicle insanity, and it's cost to fossil fuels.

I love DeSantis, but as I recall, Joe Biden "won" the 2020 presidential election with the most votes in our presidential election history...after campaigning from his basement. I have no doubt DeSantis won his election by a wide margin just as he says. I also know for a fact that our own government institutions along with Democrats invested time and money creating and perpetuating the false Trump Russia narrative designed to put a Democrat in the White House. Trump may well have won his election, given his determination to put Americans FIRST on their own soil. There was no groundswell of support for Biden's increasing hostility toward our own citizens. Taunting Trump with his "loss" was uncalled for.

I think it's all an act to get the left urinating itself in a state of orgasmic ecstasy. Trump, DeSantis and all American Patriots know that the only thing the Ftards, Kwirdoz, demoncraps and rinoz understand, relish and actively work towards is DIVISION DIVISION DIVISIONS, HATE HATE HATE President Trump and Governor DeSantis know exactly what they are doing and are in close collaboration with other American Patriots to make it appear that we are unable to be of one mind, get along and clean up the awful destruction of the Republic. They're giving them every single inch of rope... to hang themselves with. Oh the weeping and nashing of teeth, the rending of garments, the sack cloth and ashes they will heap on their own heads once all is revealed 😂😂 There won't be enough beer and popcorn when we witness their undoing. Trump and DeSantis are playing them and laughing the whole time.

Oh yes I will #4. All Trump has left are insults. His last year in office was a disaster. Cities burned, schools were closed, we were masked and distanced, young people were dying from his “warp speed” vaccine, the sick in hospitals and the elderly in nursing homes died alone and lonely, churches closed their doors and business after business failed. He got rolled by that evil little Fauci. Then, to top it off and prior to the election Biden bragged about the plan they had in place to steal the selection. And they did, right out from under Trump. I could list his lousy endorsements and appointments. There are too many. We have political prisoners, Trump supporters, locked under deplorable conditions and denied due process. I repeat, Trump Supporters! Where is he? He is out throwing stones at the best Conservative governor in the country. Perhaps he should be supporting Governor DeSantis’ successful leadership. So yes #4. I would love to see a responsible Conservative in the oval office and that is Governor DeSantis.

#13…..Nobody on this site loves the Biden years. We loved the peace and prosperity during the first three years of the Trump administration. Unfortunately it was all so easily and quickly undone by executive order. The swamp was not drained and the wall not built. We did not pull out of Afghanistan and the corruption in his DOJ and FBI only worsened. The only senior advisors who stuck it out were his daughter and son-in-law……both life long registered Democrats. Otherwise it was a revolving door of poor appointments and disloyal advisors. I voted for Trump twice!

Trump will win in 2024 if he runs on "Make America Great Again Again." He'll lose, either in the primaries or in the general election (as the Republican nominee or as a "third party spoiler") by running on "I wuz robbed in 2020.." While I doubt he will listen to my advice (heck, I rarely listen to my advice), the more time he spends on the MAGA Again and less time he spends on the I wuz robbed and starting fights with Republican opponents, the better he will be for 2024.

I’m not so sure Trump would win a war with DeSantis. Trump will resort to tacky insults and insulting nicknames. DeSantis won’t engage in that. Plus he’s not 80. He would be a formidable opponent.

I agree with those here who are calling out DeSantis on his snark. We know that there was much fraud to get Biden elected, because the swamp didn't want Trump back in DC. DeSantis better watch his step, because we don't like his association with the Bush family either. Trump owed Nobody when he went to DC. Can DeSantis say the same? Nope.

Trump should have dumped that fraud of a Fauci and his scarfy sidekick. DeSantis handled the plandemic well with a few missteps. Mainly those were when he listened to the medical alphabet agencies and before Joseph A. Ladapo came on board.

I am confused - Donald Trump started the conversation about Ron DeSantis if I recall correctly. If Donald Trump did not want to hear the remarks from DeSantis, maybe he shouldn't have started the conversation. Just because I may vote for DeSantis doesn't mean I left the Trump train. I am looking at the whole picture. Trump would only have four years and I am concerned about it.

The pandemic sparked a restlessness in American life, with many families opting to move in search of more space or a lower cost of living. That trend continued in 2022, with hundreds of thousands of people uprooting their lives and moving to new states. But some regions are benefitting from an influx of new residents — a trend that can help those areas grow their economies and expand their tax bases — while others are witnessing a net loss of residents. About 25 U.S. states saw more people move within their boundaries last year, while about 25 states lost residents or were relatively flat,

Republicans have long said the Hunter Biden laptop scandal is really a Joe Biden story. Now, it looks like the Joe Biden classified documents scandal is also a Hunter Biden story. Two Biden scandals are merging into one. The convergence point is President Joe Biden's house in Wilmington, Delaware. The public learned in the last few weeks that Biden stored a number of classified documents there, both in his garage, famously next to his vintage Corvette, and in his personal library.How many documents? Biden will not say. His personal lawyer, Bob Bauer, released a statement saying that after a search of the house,

During the last few years, most conservatives have become at least dimly aware that leftist ideology, in the guise of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), has infected public education. It’s unlikely, however, that many Americans realize just how far the disease has advanced. It has long since spread beyond a few courses embedded into the social studies curricula of secondary schools and elite colleges. Public school students as young as 9 and 10 years of age effortlessly recite leftist shibboleths even as they descend into functional illiteracy in reading, writing, math, and science.

In the days before George Washington was to set a historic precedent by taking the oath of office and becoming the first president of the United States, he was often heard to say, “I walk on untrodden ground.” The reluctant Washington no doubt understood that, as one Mount Vernon historian wrote, “the precedents he set must make the presidency powerful enough to function effectively in the national government, but at the same time these practices could not show any tendency toward monarchy or dictatorship.” He also understood that how he constructed and conducted this first presidency would set standards and practices for every president to follow.

Last week, CBS “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan asked Democratic Rep. Dan Goldman why President Biden would dispatch his personal attorney, who didn’t have proper security clearance, to his Delaware home to search for classified documents. Presumably, Brennan believed that when searching for classified documents, one should have the credentials to actually read them. Brennan’s focus on who was reviewing Biden’s papers touched on a potentially interesting line of inquiry. The question hanging in the air, however, relates to the discovery that started this whole process: Why would lawyers be “packing up” Biden’s office

The election security law passed by Republican lawmakers in Georgia and signed into law by the Peach State's GOP Governor Brian Kemp drew some of the most outlandish claims from Democrats who, for some reason, oppose making it harder to cheat and easier to vote in elections. President Biden called the election security law "Jim Crow 2.0" and urged Major League Baseball to yank the All-Star Game from Atlanta, which they did — all based on a lie. Woke corporations signed an open letter and used it to virtue signal their opposition to what they alleged would be racist disenfranchisement of voters in Georgia.

In a 1789 letter to the British philosopher Richard Price, Thomas Jefferson observed that “wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government.” By that standard, it’s no longer clear that the American electorate is equipped for the task. Jefferson was, of course, an ardent advocate of a free press whose primary function would be to provide the voters with enough information about the government’s actions to assess the soundness of its policies. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that he would dignify today’s corporate media with the appellation “free press.”

Much of the commentary concerning the presence of classified documents at the Penn Biden Center office and the President’s Delaware home has focused on the delay between the discovery and the public revelation of that discovery. And it is difficult to believe that the timing was apolitical. There is another question about the timing, however, that no one seems to have asked: Why were classified documents that had been in Biden’s possession since 2017 suddenly found less than 90 days after the FBI raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago compound?

Having thus discovered themselves — for once — in possession of the moral high ground, they have made the welkin ring with cries of outrage and calls for his resignation. However, if he ignores those calls, it may be difficult to stop him from being seated in the House and even harder to expel him once he takes office.
