Never Go Full Jen Rubin
Here it comes, the never-Trump crowd is starting to aim at DeSantis. This is who are afraid of. Having DeSantis on the stage with Burisma Joe will be their worst nightmare. DeSantis is young, smart, in command of facts, and confident. The contrast between him and Biden will be stark.
Here is the ironic thing — people are voting with their feet. They are migrating to Florida from the woke utopias of CA, NY, IL, and NJ. Most must love it.
What is ironic is their entire gig (The Bulwark, The Lincoln Project, Rubin, et al.) is dependent on Trump. If Trump loses, they will make the next one up as Trump.
Jennifer Rubin says to imagine if DeSantis did to America what he’s done to Fla. (so let’s do that) – twitchy.com
(Remember when she had a podcast on Ricochet? Good times.)Published in General
Even by then she was more to the left of Mickey Kaus. The title was good, Left Coast (Kaus in California) / Right Coast (Rubin in DC) but she didn’t live up to the other meaning for Right.
The podcast was pre Trump wasn’t it?
Too broad a brush, I think. You will find many “never Trumpers” who are enthusiastic about the upcoming DeSantis candidacy.
you might be correct – I was thinking more of the never Trumpers from who make their living given political commentary.
I believe it was. I listened mainly for Kaus. His views were interesting, She was always a bit a neo-con – she was complaining about Rand and Ron Paul back then.
Absolutely. While I have a preference for the more sunny Republicans like Haley, Scott, Sununu and others, I have no problem with DeSantis and would walk door to door for him.
I read and watch The Bulwark alone with Ricochet, The Dispatch and NR. There was a post today in The Bulwark which strongly points out that DeSantis and all other Republicans are not comparable to Trump.
Opps. This is behind a paywall. To see this point, go to Comment #50 in this Post by James. https://morningshots.thebulwark.com/p/no-desantis-is-not-worse-than-trump?utm_source=post-email-title&publication_id=87272&post_id=105680251&isFreemail=false&utm_medium=email
I think it was Michael Anton who said that the totalitarian project of the left needed a leader ane because their bench is so incredibly weak, they made Trump their central figure. Hating Trump rather than adoration of someone like Obama is their organizing principle. it is why Trump has to be larger than life, the next Hitler, and the source of all evil.
It will be harder to do that to DeSantis but they will try–they will have to because their next nominee will again be awful.
I’m looking forward to the Buttigieg/Harris ticket in 2024.
I remember always loudly eating while the podcast was being taped.
I’m a little worried about a Biden-Desantis debate matchup. Remember Paul Ryan getting bulldozed in 2012? If Biden goes at Desantis the way he did Ryan, Desantis may lose it.
A lot of cognative decline since 2012. I don’t think there’s enough Adderall in the world to get Biden back up to where he was in 2012.
I remember nodding more to what Kaus would say than her.
Is there still a chance for Weiner/Holder?
I think it’d more likely be the opposite. Joe would start yelling and descending into incoherence.
What I don’t get about Rubin is she doesn’t even make a half hearted pretense to be accurate in her attacks on DeSantis- especially in the AP African-American history controversy.
“Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post, who had evidently not bothered to look at the course curriculum in question, wrote of DeSantis, “He’s gone full-blown white supremacist,” claiming further, “The goal here is unmistakable: eradication of African American historical experience.””
A certain self-proclaimed “Reagan Conservative” is cheering for a Buttigig-Whitmer in 2024.
And yet the MSM would hail it as a smashing Biden (or whomever) victory.
According to Conservative Tree House DeSantis is GOPe’s choice. So, did Rubin not get them memo?
The GOPe are only supporting RDS because they want him and DJT to split the MAGA vote so they can nominate a globalist Bushie like Nikki Haley.
None of it matters. No Republican will ever win the presidency so long as elections are decided by junk mail ballots.
Eric Hoffer noted that mass movements can get along without a God, but not without a Devil.
That memo was supposed to be kept secret! How did you get a hold of it?? Arggh! What’s the point of being an Elitist if no one follows orders?
You must have read the new CoC, VTK. :-)
The people who decry disinformation the most tend to be the source of it.
Blue Anon lied about everything from Russian Collusion to Hunter’s laptop
Which the media would decry as DeSantis beating up on a poor old man.
I’ve heard good stuff about Weiner/Wasserman.
Wanna make the current POTUS chuckle? Tell him your child died of a fentanyl overdose.
I want David French/Bill Kristol to tell me again how Biden restored the presidency.
I think Biden must have restored their bank accounts.
For Kristol – it was Pierre Omidyar
Remind me again why Biden had to be elected because Trump was vulgar and indecent.
