Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) didn’t earn the moniker “America’s Governor” for his ability to own the libs at press conferences with scathing rebukes disabusing them of their narrative.
While his performance on that front has been stellar, it has been his record on leadership combating the woke agenda that has thrust him into the limelight and why when it comes to Republican success in the midterms, his advice is the kind that should be heeded.
Friday, DeSantis joined Raymond Arroyo guest hosting “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News when he was asked in light of tightening polls ahead of November and the divisive rhetoric of President Joe Biden speaking at Independence Hall Thursday, “What would be your advice to the Republican party, what notes should they strike in these closing days and how should they counter what we heard from President Biden last night?”

“Well hold Biden accountable,” the governor responded matter-of-factly. “This is a referendum on his failures, make sure everybody knows how his policies have contributed to the mess we’re in, and then articulate what you will do to address things like the border, like crime, like inflation.”
As he himself vies for reelection during the midterms, DeSantis’ tenure has been marked, not by mere reaction in a “ready, fire, aim” style, but a thoughtful examination of the problems at hand and a review of the myriad avenues to combat those issues for decisive execution of a plan.
Just one month ago, he demonstrated this ability to counteract the damages of progressivism with the suspension of State Attorney Andrew Warren who refused to enforce the laws duly enacted in the state of Florida. DeSantis said at the time, “When you flagrantly violate your oath of office, when you make yourself above the law, you have violated your duty.”

As he had explained, the governor had tasked his team with reviewing the actions of state attorneys like billionaire George Soros-backed Warren and what constitutional authorities he had at his disposal to ensure soft-on-crime policies plaguing Democrat-run cities across the nation wouldn’t endanger the lives of Floridians.
“I think if you do that,” DeSantis told Arroyo, as he continued about how to succeed against the left, “I think Republicans are going to win both chambers. And I think it’ll be a really good night.”
Prior to that assessment, he had provided another specific example for how he led his state through the pandemic putting an end to lockdowns as soon as it was clear they were largely a detriment with little to no benefit despite Democrats efforts to rewrite even the freshest of history.
“Well, first of all, the pandemic didn’t cause those setbacks,” DeSantis stated when asked about the decades of education losses in math and reading driven by the draconian reaction to COVID, “lockdown policies of Democrat governors, Anthony Fauci, national teachers unions who wanted schools closed, they are the ones that caused that.”
“In Florida, we said, you have a right to be in school, and you need to be in school. And we’ve done much better as a result, but it wasn’t the pandemic, because all it required was leadership to say we need to keep kids in school,” he emphasized, “and those Democrats and those unions and the left and Fauci, they chose ideology over what was right for those kids, and the damage is going to be lasting, regardless of what Fauci wants to tell you.”
Despite those and other damages like crippling inflation and all the markings of a recession, DeSantis offered a positive message as he decried Biden’s rhetoric as that of a flailing politician desperate to generate a winning argument where there has only been disaster.
“He dodders, he lashes out,” DeSantis reportedly said as he slammed Biden as “the American Nero,” “but at the end of the day, his policies are why there’s so much opposition to him. He came in and he opened the border, and we’ve seen what a disaster that’s been. He kneecapped American energy, we’ve seen how that’s hurt millions and millions of people across our country. They’ve inflated the currency, we have one of the worst inflations we’ve had in over forty years.”
“So of course, people are going to be upset at all the wreckage he’s left in his wake,” DeSantis added and delivering a clear and direct path away from that was his suggested route for victory in November.
