DeathSantis is trying a little too hard for re-election and 2024

DeathSantis had too many scrums rather than actually directing, or even rubble. because he cares about elections rather than serving voters. His press briefings are mostly about “people need to listen to the authorities” easily done by those authorities rather than actually caring. His latest briefing promoted fundraising for his wife’s NGO because you should be giving money to her instead of the Red Cross. Because real fascists hide their belligerence and poor judgment with even more insidious stunts. Trump is in a QAnon corner because of his legal issues. DeSantis isn’t in the barrel yet for his Martha’s Vineyard stunt and his hate avoids the GQP connection. DeSantis can make nuances while doing much more subtle partisanship:

He demonstrated bipartisanship, praise President Biden’s declaration of emergency and pledge work hand in hand with its administration. “You have people’s lives at stake, you have their property at stake, and we don’t have time for pettiness,” DeSantis told reporters Tuesday. “We have to work together to make sure we’re doing the best job for them.”

If Trump had behaved like DeSantis behaves today, he would probably still be in the Oval Office.

DeSantis understands that. And he shows that, unlike the 45th president, he can lead the fight against Biden one day and work with him to help storm-battered Floridians the next. He can provoke the left like a conservative populist, but also govern like a conservative reformer and lead like a president in times of crisis. Watching him handle this crisis, conservatives should see a leader who can give them everything they love about Trump, minus the belligerence and bad judgment.. Even before the hurricane, a poll of Florida Republicans — the voters who know him best — showed him first Trump by eight points in a hypothetical primary.
