If that's a reason not to support Trump, it assumes DeSantis won't lose vs Biden in the same way.

The Trump endorsed candidates that lost was because they were abandoned by the Uniparty RINOs.  Even so many of his endorsed candidates did win.

How many times do I have to say it. Trump is not a conservative.  He's a pragmatist. Sometimes that means working with Dems. He used to be a Democrat, had to work in NYC for goodness sake, and has donated to all sorts of people. As for Harris, he gave her chump change - way before 2016 - which she turned around and donated to a non-profit that advocates for human rights in South America.  Why he did I don't know, it might have been because it was to please his daughter.  Hardly a sign he supports the far left.  Maybe he just gave her money because she's so entertaining.

Funny, according to my paper copy of his campaign promises, he kept, or tried to keep despite opposition, many if not most of them, including significant progress on the wall, if not the physical wall, policies that discouraged illegals to even attempt. As for draining the swamp, easier said than done, but at least he called it out in plain English in a way no politician before him has ever done.

Nobody is perfect and everybody learns from their mistakes. I have no reason to think DeSantis will do any better. And yes I think the Dems will try everything to cheat in either case.
Trump’s campaign said in a tweet that DeSantis voted for Trump nominee Christopher Wray. An outright lie designed to fool the dumbest supporters.

DeSantis was never a senator, and could not vote on any nominees.

Is this the man you want as POTUS?  A man who throws out such careless lies?

You mean they don’t vote their conscience based on what their constituents back home would want?  I’m shocked, I tell you, shocked.
My Senator Ron Johnson did that. He announced before it was passed by the House that he wouldn’t vote for it.

Let me know what you think. I subscribe to DW and saw it when it came out.

It's rationalization at work.
Rationalization via demonization. It’s the Trump way.

Yeah, that was hilarious,
but to be honest, that could have happened to me too, and I suspect a lot of you.

Especially Anthony. (Hows that injury healing up Anthony)?
That’s why I’m not running for POTUS.

But if I did, lucifer would be my campaign manager.

We are headed for the new Dark Ages in this upside down world.
I tend to see a glimmer of optimism in the social wars.

Gay men in particular are coming out rejecting the trans movement, particularly with respect to grooming children.

San Francisco voters recalled a Soros-funded DA and kicked him out of office before the end of his first term. In San Francisco! 

Ron DeSantis incurred slings and arrows in fighting the social wars, but still got a 6 week abortion ban passed in the state.

Conservatives have been nothing short of successful in rejecting the tranny lobby in killing Bud Light, and severely damaging Target. When has that ever happened before?

That is actually Rush's excellent post and I am flattered that you'd even think it was mine.     ;D
Oh shit.  Sorry Rush!!  I was just scrolling down on Tapatalk and thought to myself it was an awfully long post for Anthony, but I went with it.

Now it makes sense!  Lol

That right there tells you everything you need to know. About half of Republicans are MAGA according to some polls but I think it’s actually more who are ideologically populists.  The polls might ask if you support Trump over DeSantis and maybe people like Stan or Little Joe, who I believe (correct me if I’m wrong guys) are basically in line with Trump’s economic and international policies, want to drain the swamp, etc., but just don’t like his mean personality, think he’s too old, has too much baggage, or is less electable in the general, want someone who can give us two terms; they’ll be asked if they support Trump over DeSantis and when they say no, are not counted as MAGA, but are in fact more populist than establishment. 

What I am saying is I think the polls are underestimating the fraction of Republicans who are this “populist element” that these RINOs want to get rid of.  These voters do NOT want the GOP to strengthen it’s alignment with the corporate world at the cost of the working man.  You have to look at how these polls are worded.  People may not admit to being MAGA and they might not prefer Trump, but that doesn’t mean they are happy with the disconnected Republican establishment.  I believe the “populist element” is far more than half. And you don’t have to be a Trump supporter to lean populist. Many people believe DeSantis is “MAGA Light”.

What I am saying is Republicans like McCarthy and McDaniel (and Griffin thinks DeSantis himself) wanting to remove the “populist elements” from the Republican Party, are miscalculating it’s size: the depth and breadth of Republican unhappiness, falsely aligning it with Trump (who is a galvanizing focus -NOT THE INVENTOR- of our unhappiness) and therefore if they succeed in severing the Party from populism, they will either become a small fraction of themselves and lose power, or become a small fraction of elite out of touch tyrants who hang on to power through corrupt duplicitous means just like the Democrats.

The grassroots movement to elect populist politicians will continue but if these establishment Republicans continue blocking them, to “keep populism out of DC”, we have a choice: Form a third party, or just go to sleep and let America continue to decline. No, I don’t think it’s time to go civil war - yet.
Anthony, this is an outstanding post, and you read the room very well.

The only slight correction is I don’t mind that he has a “mean” personality if it is directed at the left, AND brings voters to his camp. If he pushes voters away, including those in the important middle, then it is simply self-destructive narcissism. So far his outright lies have been primarily directed at DeSantis, and they violate Reagan’s 11th commandment. If he thinks those things will galvanize us populists to him, he is sorely mistaken.

Otherwise, well done.

  Hey Stan, You've become fuckin' delusional.

  Remember when you thought your pal Paul Ryan was da man?   Then you thought Ted Cruz would make a great president?

 Like most republicans you just can't wean yourself off the establishment tit and keep going back for more. 

 Sycophant?  YGTBSM   You're falling hook line and sinker for the establishment talking points and brainwashing. 

 Are you on Karl Rove's personal email newsletters as well?   No wonder you are defending McCarthy, who as we all know was Paul Ryan's protege.   Apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

 That fuckin' line "he has no chance in the general"..........LOL.  And your supporting a guy who can't even launch a campaign.   Remember when you chided me for pointing out RDS low polling numbers, you said "He hasn't announced yet".   Well, he announced and launched and barely got a 1% bump.   

  The establishment could have tried to work with Trump and expand the party and the leadership, but just couldn't stand the thought of an outsider being in their business.   So they decided to burn down the house to get rid of the spider.

  But hey, maybe your guy RDS will announce Jeb! as his running mate thinking that will get him further ahead.  That fits right in with your "logic".

Grow the fuck up.  Paul Ryan was good when he was the budget chairman, but I publicly disavowed him in 2016. And yes, I campaigned for Ted Cruz, and Cruz won Wisconsin.  So the fuck what?  Liking someone other than Trump sure gives you some major butt-hurt.  Yea, you're a sycophant.  You think I'm controlled by the establishment, but you aren't controlled by Trump.  Got it.  You think you're the only independent thinker in this group, which makes you the delusional one.

Oh come on.  He’s what, 30 points ahead of DeSantis and all the rest are jokes.  He’s got the nomination in the bag.  Apparently most Republicans think he’s the best for the country.  As for winning the general, it’s not a sure thing DeSantis can win the general more than Trump can.  They’re laying in all the plans to cheat, do you really think the Dems will say, “Oh, it’s DeSantis, well then he’s acceptable, we’ll stand down and let him win.”
That can happen when a candidate joins the race SIX MONTHS before he did in 2016. It was calculated to spend those six months beating on his only legitimate primary competitor. Fine, we’ll done. Well played.

But to think a poll days after DeSantis joined the race and 8 months before the first primary contest  is indicative of the pulse of the GOP electorate is fantasy. 

When Trump declared in June 2015, the Real Clear Politics polls showed Jeb Bush, Rubio, and Scott Walker leading the field. Didn’t turn out that way, did it?

just like the coverage of President Ford, eh?
Ford played football for Michigan, and fell at the bottom of the air stairs.

Biden played footsie with little children, and defied gravity by falling going UP stairs.

  And it is noticed.  I for one am done with them, just the same as Tim Scott.   It's time to start getting rid of the party RINO's.

  It's beyond time to squash the two party system.
So now MTG, John Massey and Jim Jordan are RINOS?

Trump has never been a conservative at all.  He doesn’t have a pie in the sky ideology of any stripe.  He’s about pragmatic results. He’s for the forgotten man, and America first, whatever ideology that means on any one issue.  Sometimes that looks conservative, sometimes it looks liberal.  Once in a while it looks libertarian and sometimes even authoritarian.  Sometimes it’s right and sometimes wrong. He’s not perfect.

But for the most part he is consistently opposed to the swamp, Uniparty, Deep State, whatever you want to call it, and the global cabal.  He is opposed to government overreach at the expense of the working man and the common man.  He is opposed to centralized control not only at the federal level but internationally.  He is opposed to relinquishing any of our sovereignty to the no-borders global oligarchy.  He stands between us and all of their destructive schemes to end civilization as we know it, which is based on fossil fuels.

I cannot overemphasize how important this one man is because he is not slave to an ideology but rather interested in actual real world pragmatic results.  He proved this in his first term. This diminished the power of the Uniparty and the global elite because it empowered us, the people.  More jobs and cheap energy means self sufficiency and that lessens their control over us.  This enraged them.  They can’t have him in office again because of just this and are deploying every weapon they have against him, including putting up DeSantis to try to deny Trump the nomination.
“… deny Trump the nomination”? 

I thought we had political races, and elected the person that we thought would be best for the country in the long run, AND who could get elected.

I didn’t realize Trump should be consecrated with the nomination.

  This bill is an atrocity brought to us once again by the RINO's.    And once again, we are fed "but it's the best we can do".

  They left HUGE holes in this bill in which we, the taxpayers will get it rammed up our asses while the RINO's continue to cuck themselves out.

   Those two years where Trump had the house and senate?  Let's see, there was your guy Paul Ryan as Speaker, and the Turtle as senate majority leader.   Two fuckin' RINO's who did everything they could to stop Trump's agenda.

  But yea, it was Trump's fault.  GMAFB.
Trump had a veto pen. He also had the bully pulpit to get what he wants, and his base would have supported fiscal cuts. The fact is he NEVER FOUGHT for fiscal responsibility. Not once.

You can continue to be a sycophant and ignore Trump’s mistakes and make up lies about DeSantis, but you are following a rat down the sewer; a rat who has no chance of winning the general.
