Maybe Ron should just accept the fact that both he and his hateful policies are not very likable.

Ron DeSantis poses as Christian but scrambled to find Amazon bible for photo op

Carla Sinclair 11:10 am Fri Dec 1, 2023

In his desperate grab for power, Gov. Ron DeSantis has disguised himself as a devout religious man, even quoting bible verses such as, "Our household is a Christ-centered household," as he said on CBN. But when the Florida phony was sworn into office, he did not have a bible in his Christ-centered household to pose with.

So rather than just getting sworn in with something that did have meaning, like, say, the Constitution, his staffers, according to NBC News, scrambled to find a bible on Amazon that could be rushed for the photo op. And phew, not only did they find one, but they scored a bargain bible for only 21 bucks.

DeSantis blames media for sagging poll numbers: They're going after me' (July 2023)

Maybe Gov DeSantis should stop trying to blame others for his our failings....

DeSantis Super PAC Takes the Wheel on 2024 Bid, Overshadowing His Campaign (August 2023)

... While traversing Iowa to meet with voters, the Florida governor routinely rides a bus emblazoned with "Never Back Down" and staffed by super PAC aides as his primary means of transport. Never Back Down staff " not campaign workers " organize and run many of his press events. Last week, Never Back Down announced a list of chairs for each of the state's 99 counties "to help organize and mobilize" voters.

Political lawyers interviewed by Bloomberg News say that DeSantis's reliance on the super PAC for such activities isn't only unprecedented, it could run afoul of rules that require outside groups to act independently of candidates and refrain from coordinating directly with them.

"What they're doing is offloading what is traditionally campaign activity to the super PAC," said Larry Noble, a former general counsel with the Federal Election Commission, referring to the DeSantis campaign. "To claim that it's done without coordination is unbelievable." ...

Yeah, it looks like there may be more to the thread's cited artice than meets the eye. ...

What does "Never Back Down" mean anyway? It sounds stupid. It sounds like something General Custer would say on his way to the Little Big Horn.

@#6 ... What does "Never Back Down" mean anyway? It sounds stupid. ...

It sounds like something from the 50's and 60's westerns that inhabit MeTV on weekends.

But for a political campaign to say, "never?" Did they think this through?

"something from the 50's and 60's westerns"

OK, I get it. DeSantis needed something that gives the impression he's tough, when cowboy boots just aren't enough.

The political cartoons just write themselves.

I hear Ronnie's Gabby Johnson impersonation, currently in the werks, is approaching dead-on. But will it surpass Casey's Jackie O performative fantasies? ("No, no, no, no, no! Those drapes are too long for the Oval Office. Next!"). Inquiring minds want to know.

I've noticed this Hallmark of Republican Leadership numerous times
in my 50+ year old life. Blame someone else.

It takes a REAL LEADER, to, you know, point the finger of blame
at someone else...(cough, cough).

Sorry, Ron, but there are no easy way-outs in the big leagues. Especially when you become a punchline, which is where you are now. But you're gonna just stick it out in Iowa, where lots of wet-hot GOPer dreams of personal advancement have gone and will continue to go to ... die. Iowa? Nobody gives a rat's patoot, Ron. You are just plain done, finished, over, kaput. Now how about moseying on back to Florida to start doing the job you were elected to do- no, not wage culture war, dumbass: fix the effin potholes. Surely you're up to that?
