The central theme of the DeSantis presidential campaign has been defined: woke. If your concerns are poverty, homelessness, mental health, guns, abortion, go bug somebody else, because Ron is worried about woke. That’s all he can think about. And if you don’t understand that, you’re stupid.
WHO IS INSULTED
BY THE WAR ON WOKE❓
DeSantis has determined not only that Black voters don’t count but White voters don’t care if a presidential candidate is racist. He is politically insulting Black voters and morally insulting White voters. @ap @nprpic.twitter.com/iJhFUyXXMt

This is the racist dog whistle, that “woke” is going to put the POCs in charge and you don’t want that.
In Ron DeSantis you have somebody who bears the same fragile vanities of Donald Trump, the paranoia & the executive abuse of Richard Nixon, a view of religion & church & state like Pat Robertson & the discreet methodologies of AG Bill Barr–@DavidJollyFL #DeSantisisaMadFascist pic.twitter.com/Dvz2EhsSN9

Here’s the Ron Desantis platform:
📌tame the deep state
How does any of that:
📌create good jobs?
📌protect Social Security & Medicare?

My take is that DeSantis is too thin skinned for the national stage. He ran for Congress in a red state, as a Republican, and then became governor, same premise. I don’t think he’s geared into the reality of 330 million people in 49 states beyond Florida.
I believe we’re going to see just that proven in the next year until the GOP convention.
