TFS Express Lane, September 19: Tallahassee Mayor’s Debate, CFO Patronis Obama tweet, Nikki Fried bringing the heat and a “Dear Leader” Birthday for Florida GOPers

At the first Tallahassee Mayor’s debate of the 2022 general election, John Dailey was every bit the red-faced menace more and more of Tallahassee knows him to be. Practically spitting as he heaved personal invective at his opponent, County Commissioner Kristin Dozier — who came in first place in August, shattering Dailey’s perceived inevitability — […]

The unprecedented DeSantis threat – now so many see it the way I have

This past week has been a whirlwind for me, as messages have flowed in to me, basically saying “you are right.”. As I have discussed at this website for close to two years, I believe Governor DeSantis represents the greatest existential threat to the Republic since Joe McCarthy – that’s right, a greater threat than […]

DeSantis and toll roads – the end of the romance shows, performance art > governing for him

The most blatant pandering possible was undertaken by Governor Ron DeSantis this week as he announced in Orlando. DeSantis claims the six-month program, essentially a toll rebate for frequent Sun Pass users, will save commuters an estimated $38 million. Ironically, despite being announced in Orlando, most toll roads in Orange County are NOT covered by […]

The race of our lives – Crist v DeSantis : Sunshine v Darkness

Florida is the Sunshine State. However, we not only have been covered by dark clouds the last four years, but we face the prospect of permanent descent into our own Dark Ages where individualism, tribalism and selfishness will prevail over our collective goals. This November, we face the most critical choice imaginable. Return to the […]

Governor Crist comes out swinging as he absolutely NAILS a CNN interview

The best messaging yet against Autocrat Ron DeSantis was found in this interview of Charlie Crist by CNN’s Kaitlan Collins. Watch the entire interview, Governor Crist is on fire and on message in a way he has not been in the past. Now if we could just get some television ads funded with these themes…
