Ben Harnwell: Ron DeSantis Is a Weak Man — Which Makes Him Far Worse Than a Neocon

6 months ago

Here’s what I think. Ron DeSantis has been an outstanding governor. But he’s weak. Clearly, a wife’s steely ambition can only carry you so far.

I’ve been surprised at how easily he imploded. But that’s the great thing about the long, public scrutinising of presidential candidates — you really get to see the true character emerge.

If DeSantis had been able to convince that he could “Make America Greater Florida”, he could have been a serious contender. But you need to have titanium stones, like Trump, to make that happen — and Ron’s flip-flopping showed he was only capable of singing with the castrati.
