I suppose my biggest failure is the only one the leftists think was my biggest success—the production of the COVID-19 vaccines. I thought I was doing the right thing; after all, the federal health experts said it was right. We have been told for decades that vaccines are why Americans are so healthy, and I did not expect the “experts” to produce vaccines that are unsafe and ineffective.
At present, I am very impressed with Ron DeSantis in Florida. He takes no guff from the media, giving at least as good as he gets, and often giving a good deal more. He has managed the improbabilities of the COVID pandemic about as well as any governor in the country, and his actions as chief executive in Florida demonstrates a clear preference for individual liberty for citizens confronted with governmental power and arrogance.
According to the survey, Trump is the favorite of the majority of the GOP, with 53% of Republican voters choosing him as their first choice. That’s a massive win, as it’s 40 points more than the closest runner-up, Ron DeSantis, who came in with 13% support. And DeSantis, who’s much like Trump in terms of major policy goals, was the only other candidate who was able to garner double-digit support. The others, when compared to Trump and DeSantis, couldn’t even do that.
A head-to-head battle between these two is so monumentally foolish for both of them, and for the country. I am hopeful that the wiser leaders of the party, as well as the advisers to these participants themselves, find a way to convince both men that for the immediate future it is important that they find ways to not only NOT butt heads but to actually get along and work together. In combination, the two of them are absolutely unbeatable. Put Hillary and Michelle together on the same ticket and I don’t think they could sidetrack a Trump/DeSantis super train.
Let’s take a moment to reflect on the recently completed presidency of Donald J. Trump, and consider how things might have turned out had Trump handled a few situations differently. Second-guessing and Monday morning quarterbacking, yes, but such exercises can be productive.
Of all the despicable actions taken against President Trump, nothing is more disgusting than the incessant assertion that he was Hitler reincarnated. Will anyone ever own up to the fact that this was a patently ugly and insidious lie?
