Quote of the Day: Calling Out Fellow Republicans

 

Gov. Ron DeSantis calls out his own party–

‘If they get majorities in the Congress, I’m sick of them talking,’ he said during the ‘Victory Dinner’ event as dessert was being served. ‘I’m sick of them telling us what they’re going to do. I’m sick of them going on cable and doing this, and prattling. In Florida we don’t just talk, we do,’ he added.

When you contemplate the changes that might actually happen in Congress after the November elections, do you think anything will be different? I think Gov. DeSantis is in the ideal position to lecture Republicans in Congress on actually doing something. He’s repeatedly demonstrated taking action: defying the federal government to assist Floridians regarding the pandemic, protecting our children from early gender training, to the corruption of our school curricula; preventing banks from discriminating against customers who might not fit their criteria for “woke” corporations. He doesn’t just speak out; he initiates legislation and takes the continual onslaught of criticism.

Do you hear any other Republicans actually criticizing their own?

I hope our legislators will take his advice and actually do more than talk. Let’s see some defiance against the Left and some initiative to correct the path of the legislature and get some things done!

    She didn’t lose her job for criticizing Trump, she lost it because that’s all she did.

    Exactly. She was the representative for DC based Bush Republicans. She wanted nothing to do with those dirty hicks on Wyoming.

    Susan Quinn: I think Gov. DeSantis is in the ideal position to lecture Republicans in Congress on actually doing something. He’s repeatedly demonstrated taking action:

    DeSantis is a head-scratcher. He makes you wonder, “Can my Republican politician do things too? Is it allowed for people with an (R) to be pro-active?” It is disorienting.

    Because it’s never happened in my lifetime. Not even with Reagan.

    Reagan’s mission was to defeat the Soviets. He did that, with humor and aplumb. We need more Reagans.

    Though whoever this “new Reagan” is needs to focus on our situation as it is, not how it was 42 years ago.

    Her name is Liz Cheney.

    I don’t think she ever did want anything to do with them.

    AND. He peddled a whole domestic line in his presidential campaigns, backed by two decades of public pronouncements about the size and scope of government as a threat to a free people. His domestic legacy is a legacy of ashes.
