Remember. It's always OK when WE do it.

So, is it still OK when WE do it amongst our own rank and file?

But now look at what's become of the FBI under Biden! Sad!

Guys, stop acting like 'we caught him in hypocrisy' is some magic bullet.  It's not.

They don't have to be morally consistent.  They can hold a double standard.  As long as it favors 'their' guy, no one will care.  The last thing their base wants is someone who will treat everyone the same.

DeSatan scares the shiat out of me. He's more dangerous than trump because he's actually smarter than him.

Look, he didn't mean when they were executing a search warrant on someone he LIKES, okay?

I've heard the phrase "with honor" a few times recently. I'm not sure that persons using the phrase understood what that particular phrase might actually mean.

The previous statement is not a criticism of the FBI.

The FBI could do / be better.

The previous statement was absolutely a criticism of the FBI

Magats don't give a shiat about consistency, these are people who will happily overlook child rape, why would they care about desantis being a hypocrite?

He really hates Trump. He should be purged.

Hm, it nearly was. The Secret Service opened the door and let the FBI in, the FBI toured the facilities, grabbed the souvenirs they were after, and left without any injuries or deaths, not even so much as a raised fist or harsh word.

Subby, your logic implies that at some point he stepped out of it.

I mean, yes, but also, think about how low we're setting the bar there.

This. Remember Turtle saying "and if it comes up again you can use my words against me" when it comes to SCOTUS nominations and when it came up again he said, "meh".

When you absolutely believe the ends always justify the means, lying and inconsistency to throw your opponent off and consolidate strength isn't a problem.

Depends on what you mean by dangerous.  I can't see DeSantis overthrowing the government, or stealing nuclear secrets to sell to the Russians.

The FBI had the audacity to violate the GOP's golden rule about conservatism:

That's what makes him dangerous.

all right we got him

I know the real answer is that their voters have the memory of a mayfly but it's almost like they forget that shiat gets recorded and can just be played back and that folks are keen to remember what people in power say.

This is it exactly. If the FBI did a no knock 4am raid with guns and cuffs on a high ranking democratic official they'd be so ecstatic they'd wet themselves.

That the raid happened in Florida opens Lil' Ronnie up to attacks. Just remind the MAGAts "He let this happen."

He doesn't have that slimy con man charm though.. we can only hope that hurts him.

The farks running TFG's admin will be the same running DeSantis' admin.

As if that's all there is to be afraid of? Do you not know his record of denying what the majority of voters want and retaliating and punishing everybody who won't toe his line? There's more than one kind of danger.

He puts on that strongman/bullying front that Cult 45 loves though. It's his ideology, or the highway, no matter if his views violate the Constitution, or skate very close, and are not what the majority of people want.

When Ron puts his foot in his mouth, he steps in shiat.
Therefore, Ron is full of shiat.  QED, baby!

We'd be mopping up spooge for days.

You tend not to sound stupid when you have principles and values, but he's a 21st century Republican so of course he doesn't.

Trump, DeSantis, Manafort, Giuliani, Navarro, McConnel, Mulvaney, and many more.  The heavy theme from "The Godfather" plays when they walk into a room.   Surely the GOP can fish for characters from a different movie genre.

A few attempt it like Rand Paul or Romney or Cheney, but you get the same old authoritarian, cruel, uncreative, backwards-looking power.  It's no way to run a country, or even a crime syndicate these days.

replacementcool: these are people who will happily overlook child rape,


That is not true; they backed Epstein's best friend's presidency because they ARE pedophiles.
The KKK looks the other way when some kids are kidnapped from schools, that's WHY we have school shootings.
The right wing's "MS13" claims are true, but are really about the Klan involved in local law enforcement.

As per our founding fathers' own words, most of the GOP should have been hanged on January 7th.
 
2022-08-14 11:41:04 AM  
The only reason I thought it might be real is if DeSantis knew it was his opportunity to position himself as the "non-criminal" Republican who will give the GOP all the evil sh*t they want without being a complete moron like Trump.

But apparently DeSantis is gonna wait until he's completely sure Trump's political hopes are dead before switching to that narrative.

IAmRight: if DeSantis knew it was his opportunity to position himself as the "non-criminal" Republican who will give the GOP all the evil sh*t they want without being a complete moron like Trump.


DeSantis doesn't want the rabid wolves asking questions like "How could Trump's home in FLORIDA be raided on your watch, Governor of FLORIDA?  Did you let it happen?  Did you take a bribe to look the other way?"

And if, God help us all, TFG is arrested in Florida, he's going to need some fancy footwork to avoid becoming the new Judas Iscariot.

Because DeSantis would be smart enough not to commit crimes on twitter.
