Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is recalibrating his strategy and messaging amid signs that his presidential ambitions may be faltering before his campaign even gets off the ground. DeSantis began the year with clear momentum in the nascent GOP presidential primary, topping former President Trump in head-to-head polling and drawing unparalleled interest from Republican voters and operatives eager to see a fresh face at the helm of the party. But there are signs that his momentum may be stalling: he’s faced weeks of relentless attacks from Trump and his allies, fellow Republicans have criticized him for dubbing Russia’s invasion of Ukraine “a territorial dispute”

His credentials as a young governor are impeccable. I believe his backers urged him to go for the brass ring too early. If he handles this step back properly he is guaranteed to have the nomination in 2028.

Gov, it's simple. Shed the Bushies and Wall Street globalists and be true to your real benefactor - Donald J Trump. The people will reward you handsomely in '28. No navel gazing is required.

DeSantis ran for re-election on the implied promise that he would faithfully serve as Governor of Florida for the next four years. I supported him in both elections and he has done a good job but I did not support him so he could use his office as a stepping stone to run for the Presidency. I expect him to keep his word of honor and his oath to faithfully serve as our Governor. It is time that we make all these politicians keep their word just like the rest of us do on a daily basis. I have emailed DeSantis and reminded him of his duty as Governor of Florida and I will not support him if he runs for President. If he does run as President by the way, Florida law requires him to resign as Governor and who knows who would replace him. We must hold the feet of our elected officials to the fire of being truthful and honest while in office.

Why do you need a strategy? I know, they most all do, but just be yourself. We'll like you or we won't. For politicians to be saying, well, you don't like me, so I'll change it up. Maybe you'll like the new me is BS. Plus they think they are telling us is something we want to hear. I remember Dole saying on TV to a question about hesitations conservatives had in him being president. His response, "I can be whoever they want me to be, just elect me". Sealed the deal for me. Anyone but Dole.

#3, I agree. I have been thinking about the anti-Trumpers in the party. Clearly, they would rather lose than back Trump. There is no denying he has done an excellent getting his America First agenda moving forward without the benefit of a loyal cadre of Republicans in the Washington swamp. He came through for the American people despite them. The never-Trumpers are the ones who fixate on his personality but ignore the good he did. They believe it is the way to mortally wound him during the primary. The GOPe scoundrels are not interested in the country or the people and were never going to support him. They were there to teach him a lesson. Their focus is on protecting the status quo. Trump and his base are beneath them and they do not want to be associated with them. Their opinion is much closer to Hillary Clinton’s opinion of us, we are deplorables. I believe Trump may have studied Angelo M. Codevilla’s essay on the ruling class versus the country class because he gets it. He has the insight and temerity to see the worth of the country class and present an agenda that finally made sense to them and those in the ruling class who want the country to succeed. Trump has a goal. It is re-election and he is going to go full bore to achieve it. He understands the cost and is willing to pay it, professionally, financially and personally. DeSantis, I hope, will support him because he could be an excellent choice for 2028 if he steers clear of the GOPe and the donor class. He needs to be his own man.

Here is your dilemma, #1...If DeSantis decides not to run, he will be derided by Trump as a coward and a loser. He is already under attack by Trump surrogates as a molester of underaged girls and (psst!) GAY! Whether he runs or not, DeSantis is damaged goods and not fit to be Trump's running mate in '24, let alone his handpicked successor in '28 to further the dynasty. For MAGA Nation, who's your alternative for VP? I've asked this before and the MAGA crowd doesn't seem to have an answer... Mike Lindell? And once the big cheese stands alone, candidate Trump's going to do some things (and not just nasty tweets) because he can while holding the spotlight, and he's Trump, the man cheated from a second term. And that burlesque will remind "moderates", i.e. non-Trumpistas, of those crazy days of yore. Many won't vote Dem, and not for Trump, either. It is fairly clear that the Dems will dump Biden and Harris. And if one believes the elections are rigged anyways...I will guarantee election funny stuff if Trump is the candidate. The establishment won't allow its '20 investment to rid him go to waste.

In my opinion, the Never-Trumpers’ time has come and gone. I just wish the Only-Trumpers would learn from their mistakes. We need a wide open primary season focused on the issues and on beating Democrats, not on vilifying anyone who doesn’t share their belief that only the President is entitled to the 2024 nomination.

11, I -never- trash DS. He is doing a great job as Governor. But I'm not voting for him if Trump is on the same ballot. That is not in any way trashing DS. I want Trump. It is that simple. No need to trash anyone else. When will the DS crowd stop telling us we are electing Biden by voting for Trump?

WACO, Texas — In the last 28 months, former President Donald J. Trump has been voted out of the White House, impeached for his role in the Capitol riot and criticized for marching many of his fellow Republicans off an electoral cliff in the 2022 midterms with his drumbeat of election-fraud lies. He dined at home with a white supremacist in November. He called for the termination of the Constitution in December. He declared himself “more angry” than ever in January. He vowed to make retribution a hallmark of a second term in the White House in March.
After Dianne Feinstein: as a political

When Dianne Feinstein arrived in Washington in 1992, her home state of California was solidly purple and Republican Pete Wilson occupied the governor’s office. More than 30 years later, as the oldest member of Congress and California’s longest serving senator prepares to retire, her state is arguably the most reliably blue in the US. Feinstein’s protracted career as a senator also charts the rise of California as a political power player on Capitol Hill, whose 55 electoral votes – the largest block by far, with Texas and Florida as distant seconds – have helped guarantee a Democrat in the White House for six out of the last eight terms.

Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) slammed the New York and Georgia investigations into former President Trump as being part of a “cancer in our body politic,” arguing they are politically motivated. Cuomo told John Catsimatidis, who hosts the talk radio show “The Cats Roundtable,” in an interview on WABC 770 that he expects Trump will be indicted in Manhattan next week. He said he “doesn’t understand” why Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) is “putting such an emphasis” on the case investigating a hush-money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

WASHINGTON — House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer on Friday demanded that Biden family business associate Rob Walker submit to questioning about his role in distributing more than $1 million from China to at least three of President Biden’s relatives. Subpoenaed bank records indicate Walker, an ex-Clinton administration official, distributed Chinese funds in early 2017 to President Biden’s brother James Biden, son Hunter Biden and daughter-in-law Hallie Biden — with $70,000 going to an unidentified Biden whose first name was not specified.

Way back in the mid-1980s, communist Yugoslavia exported the Yugo, a compact car that sold for around $4,000. It was so poorly made that bumping into a pole at 5 mph could total it. Fast forward to today, and a new class of cars has a similar problem. A minor accident can cause a total loss, even if the car’s been driven only a few miles. The only difference is that these cars aren’t cheap imports from some godforsaken socialist state. These are state-of-art electric vehicles that come with an average sticker price of $55,000. Why are insurance companies totaling low-mileage EVs that have been in a fender bender?
