Ron DeSantis: A Pathetic "Has-Been" Presidential Candidate

An Editorial Opinion

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis threw in the towel today (Sunday).  He dropped out of the 2024 presidential race.


DeSantis never had any substance as a Florida governor or presidential candidate.


DeSantis single-handedly turned the beautiful Sunshine state into a 1950s version of Mississippi.


DeSantis declared war on Mickey Mouse.  What political idiot does that?


DeSantis publicly told Black Floridians that the history of their ancestors was of no value to Floridians or anybody else.


DeSantis’ entire campaign focused on "anti-woke" issues like the diehard racists of the 1950s.  DeSantis took pride in being nothing more than a modern-day apostle of racial hatred.


During his two terms as Florida’s governor, DeSantis was never able help homeowners in his state get affordable property insurance.  He never grew the state’s economy.  He didn’t make a dent in improving the quality of the state’s public education systems.


Donald Trump had DeSantis’ number all along.  Trump knew that DeSantis was a small-time punk with the backbone of a jellyfish.


DeSantis' presidential run affirms this truism about most of today’s high-profile politicians: You cannot make chicken salad out of chicken shit, no matter how many PR ingredients you add to the dish.
