Through various means, Democrats and their allies in the press will almost always tell you which Republican/conservative they fear the most. And by “fear,” I don’t mean a fear of how much “damage” they’ll supposedly do to America but instead a fear of the person’s ability to reach and relate to a wider audience, in the process creating a broader coalition and one that will be formidable in its opposition to the woke excesses of the Democratic party.


In the run-up to the 2024 presidential election campaign season, it’s more than clear in my very humble opinion that between former President Donald Trump, who has already declared his candidacy, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is rumored to be considering a run, that it’s DeSantis who the left worries about more.

We’ve seen this by way of the various talking points/phony narratives generated about him by the Usual Suspects in the media/on the left over the last year or so. The first and biggest one is that he’s “worse than Trump,” which I guess is supposed to give conservatives and non-Trump types serious pause or something. They’ve also tried the “anti-vaxxer” talking point and have even gone so far as to try and paint him as a hypocrite because he and his wife got married at Disney long before he was elected governor and Disney became uber-woke.

There are of course more from where that came, with the latest hilarious example coming from MSNBC “All In” host Chris Hayes, who took to the Twitter machine Wednesday to wonder how DeSantis’ supposed lack of personality will “fare on a larger stage”:

Before we get started here, let’s just state what should be an obvious point for the record:


Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s get to the “meat” of Hayes’ argument – the insinuation that DeSantis’ alleged “pinched and humorless” nature may not “fare” well nationally.

First things first, I think this is a false narrative. While DeSantis certainly is not nearly as animated as Trump is when it comes to expressing himself, DeSantis’ personality does shine through during public appearances, especially when he takes on the bias that is overwhelmingly present in the mainstream media. There have also been the public quips about drinking and working out, among others. Not “pinched and humorless” at all, in my view.

That being said, even if he didn’t have much of a personality, so what? His record of achievement in Florida stands for itself, and that’s the most important thing. After decades of feeling ignored and/or betrayed, conservatives and independent-minded folks across the country are looking for people who do what they say they are going to do and live up to their campaign promises, people who don’t back down when the going gets tough. DeSantis has shown that he doesn’t care about what his critics in the media and on the left think, and gets down to doing the people’s business on a daily basis.

In 2016, Trump’s critics warned against him primarily because he marched to the beat of his own drum and couldn’t be tamed by the establishment. And yet he still won. To a certain extent, that is also true of DeSantis, which is something that a lot of folks find very appealing, personality or not:


Besides, I’m fairly certain that having a sparkling personality doesn’t rank very high on the qualification lists of most voters, because if it was, Joe Biden probably wouldn’t be sitting where he is today. Just sayin’.
